Petite Picot So Proud of You

Amazing Paper Grace has gone back to her roots with classic sewing inspired motifs! Introducing the Picot Petite Collection!

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies for me to try.

Over time we’ve had lace-inspired designs and have loved the feel of Hemstitching and Candlewicking. Reminiscent of needlework and treasured handwork proudly displayed, Becca Feeken has developed another classic line of layering shapes that feel so much like tatting or picot crochet.  As you might imagine, these shapes are crisp, clean, and timeless. Whether you are simply adding a classic layer to a card or cutting an aperture to highlight a lovely sentiment – these shapes mix and match with other sewing inspired motifs as well as intricate backdrops.

Classic Shapes are Timeless

With each Classic Collection, Amazing Paper Grace creates the most popular die-cutting shapes in oval, round, square, and rectangles. Moreover, these classic shapes mix and match with Hemstitch Classics, Candlewick Classics, Elegant Twist Classics, and now Picot Petit.The Inspiration behind Picot Petite

If you’ve ever seen tatting, the little loop produced along the edge is called a “picot”.  It’s this little loop that is the basis for the border on all of the Petite Picot shapes.  They are lovely as a backdrop for any other layerings as the little picot peeks out.  It’s just a subtle way to bring in the ways of classic needlework to give texture and dimension to the backdrop of our cards.

For this card I have used the beautiful filigree dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Bed of Lace Etched Dies from Picot Petite by Becca Feeken The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace Heart Felt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken

My favourite flowers are roses and I really enjoy making roses using the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies Candlewick Sampler Collection by Becca Feeken. I have added some small filler flowers using the small flower dies from the Elegant Infinity – Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Club which is still available for sale until stocks last. I added some gold leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Flowers III Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken and the flourish from the Amazing Paper Grace December Die of the Month Blog Hop – Rose Garden Promise.

These are the dies that I have used to create this card:

A Delicate impressions Happy Birthday

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back.

Delicate Impressions Details

We’re excited to introduce another Glimmer Hot Foil collection! The Delicate Impressions Collection has five sets of Glimmer Hot Foil Plates. The fifth set, Heart Melt Sentiments, has four unique phrases with matching dies. The other four sets are designed to create borders and accents that can be used on cards from A2 to 5 x 7-inches. Each elegant motif can be layered with itself or mix with others in the same collection or beyond.

Glimmer Hot Foil Plates are metal plates used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure.  Roll the Glimmer machine base through your die cut machine to deliver its beautiful design. Refer to Compatibility Charts on Spellbinders’ website, to see if your machine is a match.

Slimline cards are very in at the moment and today I am sharing a slimline card made with the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Crescent Band Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken. This is another versatile set that can be used in so many different ways.

I love how the different dies from Amazing Paper Grace layer so elegantly together and here I have used the Picot Petite Circles Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken and the Elegant Twist Circles Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken sets to highlight the birthday greeting.

All the flowers have been handcrafted using Amazing Paper Grace flower dies. The larger flowers have been created using the Cinch and Go Flowers III Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken dies. You can make so many different flowers from this die set and I have made these flowers relatively simple.

The small flower die is from the Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken set and that is another favourite set for small filler flowers.

Other Products Used:

Ranger Archival inks – Magenta Hue, Vivid Chartreuse, Leaf Green

Dress My Craft – Soft Floral Oriental Paper, Drop Shape Wire Pollens – Yellow, Groove Golf Tools

Neenah Solar White cardstock

Heartfelt Creations Lux Gold cardstock

Foam Tape

I hope that I have inspired you to start creating with the stunning Delicate Impressions Glimmer Hot Foil plates.

Adhere the gold die cut to the white cardstock and adhere to the front of the card.

Shape and add to the urn to create a pleasing vase arrangement with foam squares.

You Are Loved

What’s a Cardlet, pray tell?  A Cardlet is a small motif, complete with background, sentiment and character that combine to make small card or layers onto a larger card.  We’re delighted to introduce you to the Sweet Cardlets Collection.

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies and watercolors for me to try.

Sweet Cardlets show up in a Glimmer format with a matching die.   They are metal plates that are used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure.  The Glimmer machine base is rolled through your die cut machine to deliver that pressure.  As long as you have a machine that can accommodate thick dies – like steel rule dies, you’re all set. A word to the wise, it is very addicting.  (Compatibility charts on the Spellbinders website)

The Inspiration behind Sweet Cardlets

We gotta fess up here.  There’s no such word as cardlets, yep, Becca straight up made it up.  You have to agree though, it sounds really cute, right?  Well that was the inspiration behind sweet cardlets.  As you can imagine it has something to do with cards and moreover, little cards.  

Always mindful of the budget, Becca wanted to create a collection where each set is all you need to make a little card.  Sweet Cardlets are small motifs with a 3″ x 3″ footprint.  Each has a background, a main character and several sentiments.  

We found it the right size to fit on an A2 card and even to layer onto an A7 card.  In fact, the 3″ background can be repeated for a long background or a larger background.  Dies cut out each main character and three sentiments with each set give you lots of options.

My Project For Today

For my projects today I have used the very beautiful Graceful Swan Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken

Here is what the die looks like:  

I have created the background by foiling with Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Roll – Matte Silver on pattern paper and repeated this with the swans. The swans are just so gorgeous!!

The flowers are handcrafted using the Shapeabilities Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken

The Picot Petite Squares Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken coordinate so well with the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Squares Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken and adds an elegant frame for the beautiful hot foiled swans.

The sentiment is also from the Sweet Cardlets collection – Heart Felt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken. They are so sweet and easy to add to your card or project.

Here is the Spellbinders video showing amazing new samples as well as a walkthrough of the entire collection:

Amazing Paper Grace December Die of the Month Blog Hop – Rose Garden Promise

Today I am introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for December 2020, Rose Garden Promise.  

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these beautiful dies to create with.

Becca shares her inspiration for this 5×7-inch frame-worthy card front that resembles the look of stained glass.  She says, “ ‘God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December,’ a quote by James M Barrie. It is precisely that quote that inspired me to think of roses at the end of the year. It has much to do with the promise of an approaching spring, buds bursting forward, and the gift of hope.  As one who loves rituals, I finished off 2019 with a die template that featured roses and decided it was worthwhile to pay them homage at the end of 2020.” 

Isn’t it only fitting to go forward with hope for the future and for new and worthwhile things that will break through.  From the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team, let this be a beautiful end to your year; we hope that through making, it brings with it the bonus of lovely memories.  

We want to inspire you with different combinations using the December Die of the Month,Rose Garden Promise etched dieThese are a few of our ideas!

  1. Stained Glass
  2. Wedding Card
  3. Shaker Card

My Projects Today using Rose Garden Promise

I have made a card and a frame using the Rose Garden Promise Die. For the card I have die cut the frame from gold cardstock and then for the rose and leaf insets I have coloured the images with pink and green inks before removing them from the die. I have also used the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Diamonetta Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken as a background to add handcrafted flowers and a hot foiled sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Heart Melt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken.

For the frame I have used the wonderful Amazing Paper Grace Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 1/2″ Border Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken to create a frame and then added the trimmed flowers and leaves from the Rose Garden Promise die. For the middle of the frame I have added a background using the Amazing Paper Grace Diamonetta Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken. I have added a gold frame from the Amazing Paper Grace Double Halo Oval Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken. The corner dies are from the Amazing Paper Grace Callista Rectangle Shadowbox Frame Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken.

Designer Tip:

Colour the images before removing the die from the plates.
