I am learning so much about quilting patterns using the Amazing Paper Grace The Home Sweet Quilt Collection – I never realised that there were so many different combinations you can get with one pattern! I have been late to the ink blending party and I have admired all those that ink blend with ease. Today I have a pretty pink and feminine card to share with you featuring the gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Eight Point Star Etched Dies from Home Sweet Quilt Collection by Becca Feeken. I have ink blended the background for a soft and romantic feel to the card and allow the quilted pattern to shine. Handcrafted flowers, a sweet butterfly and white satin bows add a shabby chic finish.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card I have created a base card of 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″. I have added some Picked Raspberry ink to one side of the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel Quilt Embossing Folder before embossing the white cardstock. This gave me a soft pink embossed card to add over a silver layer on the card front. I have added white and silver layers over the embossed card using the largest dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Squares Etched dies. I have ink blended the backgrounds of the Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Eight Point Star Etched Dies before adding the outline and decorative dies in white on top. I decided to keep the decorative elements to a minimum and just create a star. I have used inked vellum for the centre motifs and then added the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Quilty Hugs Sentiments Clear Stamp which has been die cut using the sentiment strip die from the Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Eight Point Star Etched Dies. To finish I have added a mix of dimensional and flat flowers using the flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Spring Label Motifs Etched Dies,mazing Paper Grace Spring Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies and the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Flowers V Etched Dies. The butterfly has been made from vellum and is from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies. I finished the card with pearls around the edge of the quilted motif.
I put all the base pieces into the pattern and taped them together so I could ink blend the pieces from the centre out. This way I was able to get an even blend.
I inked the centre background motif on vellum with picked Raspberry. I then layered the vellum onto white cardstock before adding to the centre of the card as shown.
I die cut 4 layers of the sentiment die and stacked them together for more dimension.
I would place the quilt bases on the card front first before adding the outline and decorative inlay dies to the front. I ended up adding a row of pearls to kept the outer edge straight.
