Amazing Spring Blossoms Hugs

I cannot get enough of the new Amazing Paper Grace Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimline Dies by Becca Feeken. The flowers are so beautiful and really easy to make and the background slimline dies are so versatile and make stunning backgrounds to the blossoms.

Projects for today’s post were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

Today I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Blossoms Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to create a pretty spring card to cheer someone up. The background die is the Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken which has been trimmed to fit onto a 5″ x 7″ card. I love how I can make so many different size cards with this very pretty die. And I so love how I can mix and match different Amazing Paper Grace dies to enhance the base of the card. The Amazing Paper Grace A2 Radiant Navette Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken fits perfectly over the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Ovals Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken.

To finish I have added a sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Picture Perfect Window Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and of course butterflies from my favourite Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.

To hide the joins on the background die I have used wide ivory ribbon.

I have stacked two layers of ivory cardstock with the gold cardstock to help create dimension and allow the sentiment to stand out.

Copic markers are perfect for colouring the stems and allow the flowers to pop.

I have coloured the stamens with a pale yellow ink and then I added pink iridescent gems to the centres of the flowers for a sparkly finish.

The background decorative dies have two layers – one ivory layer and a gold layer peeping out behind the dies.

Die cutting leaves and sepals from green cardstock makes flower making so quick and easy!

I have used foam squares to add dimension to the flowers to help them pop!

Saying Thanks with Amazing Paper Grace Daisies!

Daisy Daisy Give Me a Daisy Do

I am really loving the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Fleur Bouquet Dies by Becca Feeken. The flowers are so quick and easy to make and they look stunning!! Daisies are such humble flowers and grow so easily and are fabulous in a vase on their own or as filler flowers. This card was so quick and easy to put together but really packs a punch with the flowers really popping on the clean white elegant background. A simple ‘thanks’ is all that is needed to finish the card and keep the spotlight on the flowers.

I have a step by step tutorial on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group on Facebook showing how simple it is to make these flowers.

Projects for today’s post were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

For my card today I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Daisies Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken on a very pretty base created using the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Leaf Mini Slimline Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Eyelet Lace Frame Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have kept the colours very clean and simple to show the humble daisy!

Adding light yellow prills really helps with creating realistic centres to the flowers.

I have added shading to the leaves with green ink to help add depth to the leaves.

I have added some pearlescent vellum behind the leaf die which helps the die really stand out behind the flowers.

Amazing Paper Grace May 2022 Die of the Month Pop 3D Vignette What’s Bakin’ Oven


Kia Ora Koutou

Due to unforseen circumstances I was not able to participate in the Amazing Paper Grace May Die of the Month Pop Up 3D Vignette What’s Bakin’ Oven so here are my samples now. This is such a fabulous die set and is really easy to create a 3D card and also an A2 card as shown here. I have used a combination of blues, silver and white colours for a very elegant effect.
 
My creations were created today with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

There are 14 dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette What’s Bakin’ Oven.

 

My first project is an A2 card that would make a gorgeous birthday card for someone who loves baking or as a fun card to celebrate a pregnancy. The Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Rectangles Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken creates a beautiful base for the card.

I have using the front of the oven as the hero of this card and both oven doors open slightly.

I have trimmed the corners of the outer decorative die Amazing Paper Grace A2 Filigree Marquis Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken in silver and adhered them to the corners of the embossed background.

I have die cut the ‘Hello’ die three times and stacked them to add dimension to the sentiment and allow it to stand out on the card.

My second project is a Pop Up 3D Vignette oven. This is so cute and so easy to make.

I have made the cookies out of kraft cardstock and used a brown copic pen to create chocolate chop cookies that look good enough to eat!

I have used silver mirror cardstock for the utensils, trays and accents for a realistic look.

To finish I have added some pretty flowers to decorate the top of the oven.

Amazing Paper Grace | Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection Intro Blog Hop

I love the calm serenity of white lilies – they are so beautiful as a wedding bouquet or equally stunning to express your sympathy. Today I have a card that is perfect for a beloved friend for all occasions and I have also created a coordinating basket to fill with special treats. (Here I have filled the basket with small chocolate Easter Eggs). These flowers are so easy to create and look so stunning as a single flower or as a bunch of flowers.

Projects for today’s post were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

For my card I have used the S4-1198 Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to create a white on white decorative background.

I have decorated the card with the S4-1192 Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have used stacked three layers of the sentiment together to create more depth and allow the sentiment to ‘pop’.

The green leaves really stand out from the white background and help to accentuate the white flowers.

This card is quite flat and will be easy to post – always a bonus.

The butterfly from the S6-183 Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken adds a gorgeous finishing touch.

I have added pearls to accentuate the gorgeous background die.

The S4-1198 Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken also contains some pretty little flowers and leaves and here I have attempted to have pretty blue flowers cascading out of the oval and decorating the sentiment.

For my basket I have created a basic 4″ x 4 x 1 3/4″ box and embellished the box with the dies from the S4-1198 Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken. I have covered the joins with lilies and the tiny flowers from the same die set. The decorative handle has been created using the S4-1165 Amazing Paper Grace Romantic Slimline Borders Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken. I have finished the box with some gorgeous butterflies from the S6-183 Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.
