Amazing Paper Grace September 2022 Die of the Month

Do you have a sweet tooth? This Amazing Paper Grace September 2022 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Bubble Gum Machine is just perfect for you and is now available until the 28th September! This set reminded me of the pretty pastel colours from 1950s and my cards reflect this colour combination.

The dies were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace to create today’s projects.

There are 26 cutting dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Bubble Gum Machine.

My Projects For Today

I have created a slimline card and a Pop Up 3D Vignette that shows the versatility of these fabulous 3D dies from Amazing Paper Grace. For both cards I have added some pretty florals using the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Bouquet. The slimline card has a shaker element to the bubble gum machine that will make your mouth water in anticipation. The background die on the slimline card is the Amazing Paper Grace Flourished Sonata Notecard Etched Dies and the bubble gum machine fits perfectly on it. The sentiment from the Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments fitted perfectly with the sentiments from the Amazing Paper Grace September 2022 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Bubble Gum Machine.

I have die cut 4 machine dies with the window cut out and stacked them together to create the shaker element.

I have die cut the bubble gums out using several different colour cardstock to add to the shaker element.

The background papers coordinate with the colours I have used and is appropriately named Sweet Treats!

The flowers have similar colours to the bubble gums to match for a coordinated look.

I have added some acetate behind the first window to give the feeling of a glass finish.

The 3D Vignette folds up flat to fit in a standard 5″ x 7″ envelope.

An Amazing Paper Grace Hello

Sometimes less means more and today I have a sweet clean and simple (well for me!) card featuring the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken. This die is part of the new Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Motifs collection by Becca Feeken that has been released this month. I love the little flowers and leaves and the butterfly is so gorgeous!!

Projects created today were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project for Today

For my 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card I have layered pale blue and white for a simple classic background and labels and I then added flowers and leaves in some pretty colours. I have carried those colours through to the butterfly to give a cohesive look and balance to the card. The sentiment finishes the card nicely.

The Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken consists of 15 dies to provide all you need to make a summer themed card.

The Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Motif Sentiments Clear Stamp Set from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken is designed to coordinate with the Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Motifs collection by Becca Feeken.

I have added some pink jewels to the centres of the flowers and blue jewels to finish the card for a touch of sparkle.

I have carried the colours from the flowers to the butterfly to balance the card.

Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies

My card today was inspired by Amazing Paper Grace August Die of the Month – Peekaboo Trellis Panels. This time I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Leaf Mini Slimline Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to create an pretty framed aperture in the front of the card.

Today’s projects were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project for Today

I have created a 5″ x 7″ base card and used the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Leaf Mini Slimline Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to die cut the aperture. I then die cut another separate decorative leaf die out of gold cardstock and adhere it behind the white decorative die slightly offsetting it. I have cut a piece of acetate to fit behind these dies and made gold frames for both the front and the inside front of the card. The acetate helps to strengthen the card.

To finish my card I have made some lilies using the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken and a butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken finishes the card.

I have an exclusive step by step photo tutorial on how I have created the lilies for members of the Amazing Paper Grace – Creative Encouragement Group. Ask to join this wonderful community to view this tutorial and many other tutorials to inspire your creativity. (And don’t forget to answer the questions to get accepted. I look forward to seeing you there!).

I have used acetate behind the leafy die to help strengthen the card.

The gold decorative die just peeps out from behind the white leaves.

The gold frame front and back helps to finish the leafy die and anchor it into the card.

I have sponged the leaves with green ink for some depth and dimension.

Amazing Paper Grace | The Seasonal Label Motifs Collection Intro Blog Hop

I have two cards and a tag to share with you today to celebrate the launch of the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Motifs collection by Becca Feeken. I loved the simplicity of the card that has been created for the packaging and made a card and tag creating a scene with the dies in the Amazing Paper Grace Winter Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken My second card has been inspired by a card by Becca Feeken where she has used this gorgeous background die as a pink on pink card for the Right Words Collection

Projects created today were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

I have created two cards and a tag using the Amazing Paper Grace Winter Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken. I have created a winter themed card and coordinating tag using all the dies in the set that could be also be used for Christmas cards. My second card features the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Anabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame Medium die by Becca Feeken to create a base for the label dies, birthday sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Happy Occasion Words Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken and pretty flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Bouquet Die set by Becca Feeken.


The Amazing Paper Grace Winter Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken consists of 17 dies to create gorgeous scenes for cards, scrapbooks and home decor.

The Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Motif Sentiments Clear Stamp Set from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken is designed to coordinate with the Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Motifs collection by Becca Feeken.

I have added texture using the Spellbinders Forever Green embossing folder and die cut the label in the centre out using the smaller label die from the Amazing Paper Grace Winter Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken and then added the frame to the card front using foam tape. This has created a recess for the decorated inner label to fit into. I then die cut a frame using the outer and inner label die out of the blue cardstock to create a frame for the inner decorated scene.

I have ink blended the background for the centre to create a snowy background.

I have used two different colour greens to create some depth to the trees.

The small house has been die cut out of white and blue cardstock and I trimmed the smoke of the house of the blue die and added it to the white die. And adding the white windows and white roof has helped to give some dimension to the house and enabled it to stand out from the trees and fence.

This tag is great to add to a gift for Christmas or just because…

I have die cut the outside label using white cardstock and then die cut a frame using the outer and inner label die out of the blue cardstock to create a frame for the inner decorated scene.

For my second card I have added the blue decorative dies from the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Anabelle’s Trousseau Layering Frame Medium die by Becca Feeken to the blue background and added some silver accents to create more interest.

I have adhered the blue sentiment to the silver sentiment and slightly offset the sentiments to create a shadow on the card.

Clear iridescent jewels add some sparkle to the card.

Butterflies are always welcome on a floral bouquet.

The labels are perfect to add to a pretty base and add the sentiment of your choices.

The larger leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken and I have used the smaller leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Winter Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken.

Amazing Paper Grace August 2022 Die of the Month

I have seen so many cards on Instagram and Pinterest using acetate windows and I was thrilled to see the Amazing Paper Grace August 2022 Die of the Month – Peekaboo Trellis Panels. There is something magical having a see through effect on a card and this die set is just fabulous for this finish.

My Projects

For my projects today I have made a very pretty card and a bookmark to coordinate. Once again I have used a white on white combination with a pop of pink and green. For my card I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Romantic Slimline Borders Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken to create a lace border to highlight the gorgeous insert die which I have placed horizontally on the card. I have used alcohol markers to colour the flowers and finished with green and gold leaves.

For my bookmark I have created a frame using the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Slimline Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken for the open leaf insert die. To complete my bookmark I have put the beautiful pull piece from the Amazing Paper Grace Christmas Cascade Card Base Etched Dies Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken at the top to peek out of the book.

Today’s creations were created with the dies supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

There are 13 cutting dies included in the Peekaboo Trellis Panels.

I have used a mix of green and gold leaves to help the pink pop on the white background.

To create the base card I have cut a piece of white cardstock 10′ x 7″, scored at 5″ along the long side and folded it to create a base card. I have then die cut the insert horizontally on the front of the card. I cut a piece of acetate to adhere on the back of the insert to provide some strength and after adding the lace strips I have added gold strips to tidy up the edges on the front and back.

The sentiment has been stacked with two white and one gold layer to help it stand out.

I have used the flick method to colour the flowers with alcohol markers.

I have die cut two leaf inserts – one out of gold and one out of white cardstock. I then adhered the white die over the gold die and slightly offset the gold to have a hint of gold.

For the flowers I have cut the outside layer from white cardstock and then die cut a white layer and coloured the small pieces before layering on the base. I die cut a white outside decorative flower to adhere over the top.

Amazing Paper Grace – Happy Birthday

It has been a while since I made some beautiful flowers using Amazing Paper Grace flower dies and I was going through withdrawal symptoms! So today I have a beautiful birthday card full of pretty flowers to share with you. The birthday sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Happy Occasion Words Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken was perfect to go with these flowers. This die set is from the Amazing Paper Grace The Right Words Collection which has a number of different sentiments for so many different occasions. The sentiment really makes a statement on this card and who wouldn’t love to receive this card!

Today’s projects were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project for Today

For my card I have used another of my favourite Amazing Paper Grace dies – Amazing Paper Grace Annabel’s Trousseau Layering Frame Medium die on a 5″ x 7″ base card. I have stenciled a sun ray pattern with glitter paste for the centre of the decorative frame. There are three different flower dies in my floral spray – the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Flowers III, and the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers dies. I have added a pretty butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken. And the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Happy Occasion Words Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken fits nicely within the beautiful decorative frame.

I have used a glitter paste for the stencil in the middle of the frame and this helps the sentiment to really stand out.

I have die cut three layers of the sentiment – two from white cardstock and one from gold cardstock. I then stacked the layers together before adhering them to the card. This helps the sentiment to really stand out.

I have added some yellow jewels to the centres of the pink flowers for a bit of sparkle.

Butterlies are the perfect accompaniment for a floral card.

I love using pastel colours for my flowers and try to have a range of different colours that coordinate for a harmonious finish.

I have sprinkled Crystal Ultrafine glitter to the flowers after painting the flowers with clear gloss gel medium.
