Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cardlets II | You Are My Home

Last October we introduced Cardlets and they are back in Sweet Cardlets II!  A “Cardlet” is a small character motif that comes with a sentiment that fits within a  3 x 3 area and has a matching die.  It just so happens that this size is perfect for the ever-popular Slimline Cards.  Join us in introducing a new slimline as well – Hemstitch Slimline – it will match Hemstitch Rectangles and all of the other Hemstitch Classics.  

I am thrilled to partner with Amazing Paper Grace to bring you this little taste of inspiration!

Sweet Cardlets are just like stamps, but they are metal plates 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. (Compatibility charts on the Spellbinders website)

The Inspiration behind Sweet Cardlets II

Since we are premiering the first Slimline Card Die for the Amazing Paper Grace line of dies, we wanted you to have plenty of sweet elements that fit onto the slimline.  The small motif 3″ x 3″ footprint makes this easy.  Add to that there is a matching die it makes for a cute pop of dimension on all of your cards – Slimline, A2 or A7.

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.  Sweet Cardlets also fit into the Cascade Card Base and work along with all of the Shadowbox Dies.

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

Today I have a 5″ x 5″ card to share with you featuring the stunning Amazing Paper Grace You are My Home Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca Feeken. I have new neighbours coming next week so this is the perfect card to welcome them to the neighbourhood.

For this card I have hot foiled the image of the houses on Iris cardstock and then coloured the images with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers. I trimmed the large house and sunset image to fit inside the postage stamp foiled frame. And then to complete the card I have used the outside frame from from the Amazing Paper Grace Richelieu Square Etched Dies Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken that has been added using foam strips to create depth and dimension. The gold trims complement the coloured images perfectly!

Designers Tip:

Mix and match different dies to add dimension and interest to your cards.

Today I have an inspirational card for you featuring the gorgeous Amazing Shine Your Light Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Sweet Cardlets II Collection by Becca FeekenI.

For my card have foiled the lightouse image using Iris cardstock and coloured the image with Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers. I then added the painted lighthouse in front of a halo that I created by sponging some yellow and blue ink to the circlular rays on the background image to give the impression of light emitting from the lighthouse. I thought the round elegant twist from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Circles Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken added to the nautical theme of the card. To finish the nautical theme I have added some sand effects with gauze and some Minnie Pearl Prills.

To complete the card I have added some elegant corners from the Amazing Paper Grace Callista Rectangle Shadowbox Frame Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken.

Designers Tip:

Add dimension to the lighthouse by die cutting three plain background dies, adhere to together and then adhere the painted image.

Amazing Paper Grace June Die of the Month Blog Hop – Victorian Splendor Slimline

What’s better than one world?  Well, of course, it’s the best of both worlds!  Today we are introducing a new Slimline Die that is part of an A7 Card Front – we call it an all-in-one.  Who knew that slimline could look so feminine – welcome the slim new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June 2021, Victorian Splendor Slimline.


Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

Our inspiration is always being able to get the most out of a die set and this one scores high on the bar for functionality and feminine appeal.  If you can imagine a “Card Creator” type of die that has an inset Slimline, a decorative inset Border, and a sentiment label that could all be used in a Card Front – then you’d be looking at Victorian Splendor Slimline.  It has A2 and A7 elements.  It functions as a Card Front and pretends to be a slimline – all in one.  

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to use pieces of the set:
1.  Pull the mini-sized slimline out and use it separately. 
2.  Inlay the border at the bottom and top of a landscape A7 Card. 
3.  Create a tall gatefold by folding in the border panel on two cuts of the A7 card front.

There are 10 dies included in the Victorian Splendor Slimline.

My Project Today using Victorian Splendor Slimline.

I have made a card with a coordinating basket with the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – Victorian Splendor. For my card I have used a pretty pink paper as a background to the lacy dies. I have also used pearls to highlght the decorative dies and in the centres of the flowers.

I have made a simple box 3″ x 2″ x 2″ and the handle has been made using the gorgeous diamond flower die. This has been finished with small flowers, pearls and a white satin ribbon.

Designer Tip:

Adding a pretty colour behind the gorgeous dies helps to highlight the pretty dies.

Supplies:
Accessories:  Amazing Paper Grace June 2021 Die of the Month – Victorian Splendor Slimline

Stamps:   Altenew Many Thanks

Paper: Heartfelt Creations Purr-fect Posies (retired)

Ink: Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink

For the the tea pot and cup I have foiled the images using Iris cardstock and coloured the images with Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers.

The flowers are handcrafted using the Amazing Paper Grace and I have a tutorial on the Amazing Paper Grace -Encouragement Group. I have used Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – March 2020 Elegant Infinity.

Designers Tip:

This Sweet Cardlets II collection works really well with all the Amazing Paper Grace square dies.

Sweet Cardlets II Availability:

These dies and plates are available from Spellbinders right now! Click here: Sweet Cardlets II

The pretty pink paper is Spellbinders Express Yourself Paper Pad.
