Amazing Paper Grace | Wedded Bliss

Hi crafty friends!  It seems like we have been waiting for months for February to roll around.  We have been working in the background, holding our breath, tapping our feet and waiting on tippie toes to show you a new collection!  Ta-dah!!!  Today we are introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Collection called Make A Scene!!!  It was designed by Becca Feeken and is available at Spellbinders.  Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post. NOW, TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU . . . In the past, Becca has created several interactive collections . . remember 3D Vignettes and remember Shadowbox Vignettes?  One of the things Becca does, is she tries to create a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with past collections. That means new material for your old material. 

WHAT IS MAKE A SCENE? Make A Scene is an interactive card collection and a flat card collection, all in one – you choose based on your style.  The interactive portion is made with a card base that folds in six different layered scenery options.  The 3D card base folds flat but slides open to reveal a dimensional scene.  Since it has a 3D profile, the opened card makes quite a splash and can be set out on a desk for showing off.  The card base is huge and it offers you the chance to snag one of six scenes that cover many occasions.  If the six scenes are not your occasion du jour, then by all means dive into your huge stash of dies and insert your own contents.  The flat card portion is made with the individual scenes.  Each of the components for the scenes can be cut onto the top of a panel and used on a flat card or as part of a 3D Vignette or as part of a shadowbox scene. 

My Projects for Today

I’m using the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene Card Base Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken with the and Amazing Paper Grace Wedded Bliss Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken for this interactive card. I also wanted to show that you can use your old Amazing Paper Grace dies with this collection – here I have using the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Cascading Grace Etched Dies by Becca Feeken.

I have used the beautiful little fence die from the Amazing Paper Grace Cozy Home Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and the sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene Sentiments Clear Stamp Set from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken.

The flowers are made using the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and I have a photo tutorial on how I have made these flowers on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group on Facebook here.

Designers Tip:

I found you cannot have a lot of bulk out wide in the front two layers as the layers will not slide through the side slots easily.

How to Assemble:

When you see the card base it will make total sense how this goes together.  Here is a quick start video to lay it all out for you.

Also, check out the very cute little cat!

To complete my card I have added a silver frame and blue decorative frame from the Amazing Paper Grace Scallop Façade Frame Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken.

Amazing Paper Grace March Die of the Month Blog Hop – Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar

It doesn’t take many steps past February to begin to ache for the stirrings of spring.  Blooming flowers are the earliest sign and we have something to get you started.  Today I’m introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for March 2021, Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar.

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to create with.Imagine kicking rocks as you walk down a sweet rural road, on one of the first days the weather hints that the seasons are starting to change.  You pick wildflowers and rush home to put them into a jar of water to keep them perky for the days to come.  This is the inspiration that struck Becca when she put together the flower and mason jar combination.  It’s so cute and sweet!!
This easy to assemble mason jar can contain anything, but today it holds layered flowers.  This flat side look is just like a real bouquet.  Glue them or layer them with foam tape to make a dramatic statement.  The mason jar can be left solid or cut like a frame for a shaker card the stems are simply threaded through each lid to secure them for arrangement.  If you’re partial to flat cards, use the filigree band with two brads to hold your stems! This makes a lovely card front bouquet, complete with stems.

There are 16 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar

My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar

I have made a 3D vignette card and a card with a shaker element to the jar. The flowers have been made using 160 LB flower shaping paper which enabled me to shape the flowers and leaves easily and also made the flowers very light for the 3D vignette card as well as the shaker card. The shaker elements are clear sequins and dew drops to give the effect of water in the jar.

Designer Tip:

Use heavy cardstock to make the 3D vignette card as it makes it more robust for holding the flowers.

Supplies:
Stamps:   I have used a old stamp from a magazine.
Paper: DMC Flower Shaping Paper, Neenah Solar Crest Cardstock
Ink: Ranger Archival ink – Magenta Hue, Violet, Library Green, Versamagic – Pretty Petunia, Distress Oxide ink – Mowed Grass
Accessories:  Amazing Paper Grace March 2021 Die of the Month – Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar, Amazing Paper Grace Scallop Façade Frame Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken

Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace | Make A Scene Collection

Hi crafty friends!  It seems like we have been waiting for months for February to roll around.  We have been working in the background, holding our breath, tapping our feet and waiting on tippie toes to show you a new collection!  Ta-dah!!!  Today we are introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Collection called Make A Scene!!!  It was designed by Becca Feeken and is available at Spellbinders.  Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post. NOW, TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU . . . In the past, Becca has created several interactive collections . . remember 3D Vignettes and remember Shadowbox Vignettes?  One of the things Becca does, is she tries to create a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with past collections. That means new material for your old material. 

WHAT IS MAKE A SCENE? Make A Scene is an interactive card collection and a flat card collection, all in one – you choose based on your style.  The interactive portion is made with a card base that folds in six different layered scenery options.  The 3D card base folds flat but slides open to reveal a dimensional scene.  Since it has a 3D profile, the opened card makes quite a splash and can be set out on a desk for showing off.  The card base is huge and it offers you the chance to snag one of six scenes that cover many occasions.  If the six scenes are not your occasion du jour, then by all means dive into your huge stash of dies and insert your own contents.  The flat card portion is made with the individual scenes.  Each of the components for the scenes can be cut onto the top of a panel and used on a flat card or as part of a 3D Vignette or as part of a shadowbox scene. Today we are prepared to show you – each Creative Team Member has created both a 3D Card and a Flat Card so that you can see the best of both worlds! 

My Projects for Today

I’m using S6-165 Make a Scene Card Base and S5-444 Perfect Picture Window Scene

For my 3D Get Well card I wanted to create a sense of spring with all the flowers around the window and window box. The daffodils are blooming in the window box and there are blossoms over the window and in the background and on the window box. Sending a hug is coming soon as well as some get well wishes.

I have created this Special Day card using the window and window box with a raised frame to create some depth for a shadow box effect. The cascading flowers and tulips are so cheerful for any special occasion.

Designers Tip:

I found you cannot have a lot of bulk out wide in the front two layers as the layers will not slide through the side slots easily.

How to Assemble:

When you see the card base it will make total sense how this goes together.  Here is a quick start video to lay it all out for you.
