Amazing Paper Grace January 2022 Die of the Month Blog Hop – Pop Up 3D Vignette Coffee, Tea or Me


These gorgeous dies reminded me of a having high tea at the most amazing cafe which sadly has closed now. The waiting staff were dressed up in fifties style clothing and there were beautiful lace tablecloths and old china with beautiful floral patterns on them. The food was delicious and we had a wonderful time there.

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

There are 21 dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Coffee, Tea or Me.


For my card I have made a lace background with the Amazing Paper Grace Eyelet Lace Frame Etched die and then made a shaker element using the cup and lace dies from the Die of the Month set. I have then added some hearts and flowers to create a vase of flowers. To finish I added a small tea bag for the tea lover.

For my second project I have made a 3D vignette with the cup dies. I have used a pretty pattern paper for the cup to emulate the beautiful floral antique china cups. I have added some flowers and hearts to coordinate with the card. This would make a stunning Valentine’s Day gift for a special tea lover.

Amazing Paper Grace December Die of the Month Blog Hop – Enchanting Pocket Card, Tag and Envelope

The Enchanting Pocket Card, Tag and Envelope set has many different options to make your creations stand out! It is a sweet gift card-sized envelope that doubles as a card front pocket. The bonus is that there is a tag too that doubles as a label. The inspiration for this set comes from Becca’s love of giving gift cards! It can be used year-round, dressed up or dressed down, and themed for any occasion. Using the different inlay and insert designs, you can cut and make unique variations to keep the design fresh!


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

There are 14 dies included in the Enchanting Pocket Card, Tag and Envelope.

My Project Today using Enchanting Pocket Card, Tag and Envelope.

Today I have made a thank you pocket card and a coordinating box made with the lacy rectangle dies. For the card I have laid the pocket over the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Mosaic Bracket Card Builder Etched Dies from the Holiday Medley Collection by Becca Feeken. I have finished the card with a pink ribbon, some sweet flowers and some iridescent gems.

For the box I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Rectangles Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken to create a simple box and on the top of I have die cut two lacy rectangles to decorate the top. I have finished with a pink bow and some gorgeous flowers.

Designer Tip: 

For the pocket on the card I die cut another piece of cream card to give a nice finish to the back of the pocket as when I die cut the pocket and folded over the bottom the top showed the rough side of the die cut.

Amazing Paper Grace October Die of the Month Blog Hop – Flourished Fleurit

Elegance is our go-to style at Amazing Paper Grace.  We are always on the hunt for those elegant elements that you can add to a card that gives it just the right feel and appeal.  This month we’re head over heels for a year around a cascade of tendrils that can be snipped here and there to be used for top and bottom card decoration.  Say welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace October 2021 Die of the Month – Flourished Fleurit.

The inspiration for Flourished Fleurit comes from looking through our stashes for just the right Rectangle or just the right Square.  Guess what – Flourished Fleurit can be both.  A snip here or a snip there puts give is just the right proportion to be a rectangle or a square.  We cleverly added in sprigs of flowers so that you can cover your transitions.  Hunting for elegant corners for a slimline – look no further.  A slip or two has you covered.

 Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create:

 1.  Snip between all four corners for slimline decoration
 2.  Snip between the connecting rod and cinch for a square
 3.  Cut as a rectangle for a beautiful A7 layout with many options.


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

There are 9 dies included in the Flourished Fleurit.

My Project Today using Flourished Fleurit.

For my shaped card I have kept to a simple white on white finish with just a hint of gold in the inner decorative die and the hot foiled sentiment. I finished with a pop of colour with the flowers and leaves.

The little basket was very quick and easy to create – just score a single die cut at the edges where the flourishes finish and fold up. Make a little box and add to the centre of the die, add flowers and finish with a ribbon boow. Just add chocolates and you have a beautiful gift basket.

Designer Tip: 

Trim the gold inner decorative die in the centre and then adhere to each end slightly overlapping the dies. This allows the gold edge to overlap more evenly.

Amazing Paper Grace August Die of the Month Blog Hop – Lattice Petal Foldover Birthday Card

It’s a square card front! It’s an envelope! It’s both!! In the transformers world of dies, we love for our dies to be used in many different ways. This die was designed to function as both a card front and for the petals to fold over to enclose a notecard. The pretty lattice filigree is just the icing on top. Welcome to your stash, the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for August 2021 – Lattice Petal Foldover.

You asked and we listened. Our May 2020 Die of the Month was so popular that we made a slightly smaller, dainty version. Becca said that the inspiration for this die set is all about the Note Card. As someone who loves to drop a little notecard into lunch boxes, drop them into packages, and even leaves them on the door for delivery people – this is quick and easy. Die-cut 10 of the lattice petal jackets and 10 of the 3″ (or 3×6 for a folded note) notes for inside and you’ll always be ready with a stunning note.

Here are some ideas that will inspire you to create with the foldover elements:
1. A box with the foldover as the lid
2. Notecards (there is even a closure piece)
3. A sweet, petite basket

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

There are 14 dies included in the Lattice Petal Foldover.

My Project Today using Lattice Petal Foldover.

Pink, gold and white with handcrafted flowers are the perfect combination in this card. I have added dimension to the outer lattice die with some fun foam and then added the inner decorative die over gold card. The sentiment is hot foiled using the birthday sentiment from the Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Simply Perfect Collection.

The alstraemeria flowers have been created using the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and the filler flowers are from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken.

There is a tutorial on how to make these flowers on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group here.

Designer Tip:  

Add dimension to the dies using foam tape or foam.

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
