Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes I Bless Your Heart

Beautiful card front sentiments do the heavy lifting on a card and the recipient knows exactly what you are trying to say. In that spirit, today we are introducing a new collection called Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes. It spins beautiful, intertwined calligraphic words into a compact label shape, perfect for the front of your card.

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

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Inspiration

Many Amazing Paper Grace followers were so thrilled when the first 3D Vignettes with word inserts came out. Over time, our followers have asked for a greater variety of words to fit into the 3D Vignette apertures. Your wish is our command!

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection

The Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection is made up of 7 different die sets and a stamp set. Most sets contain a sentiment and a filigree background layer. Each set makes it quite easy to produce a complete card. The bonus is the sentiment shapes each match an existing 3D Vignette. Along with being able to complete a card, the new sentiments will allow another sentiment to existing 3D Vignettes already in your stash. Romantic Chargeour works with all the sentiments.

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection also contains an “inside” sentiment set that matches the thought on the outside of the card. To top off the collection we’ve included Petite Floral Potpourri. It’s a compilation of all the small flowers and leaves that are most requested by our community.

My Projects for Today

For my projects I’m using the Amazing Paper Grace Bless Your Heart Vignette Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken and I have decorated the card with some beautiful flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken.

For my card I have used the outline decorative die as a stencil and coloured with some inks to match my background cardstock. To finish the stencil look I have embossed the die to make the colours pop out of the background. I have then die cut three sentiment dies and layered them together for more dimension and to make the sentiment stand out. I kept the flowers simple to allow the sentiment be the focus.

Designers Tip:

Be creative with your die cuts and look at using them as stencils.

I have die cut the flowers and leaves using different pastel coloured cardstock and then mixed and matched the colours and different die cuts to create the different flowers. I have done minimal shaping with these flowers.

Designers Tip:

Have fun mixing and matching colours and dies to create flowers to match your card base.

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.

For my card I have embellished the base of the card with the beautiful diamond pattern die from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – Victorian Splendor Slimline. This die fits perfectly with the Hemline Stitched dies. I have layered some dies – the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Circles Etched Dies Candlewick Classics Collection by Becca Feeken, the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Circles Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Circles Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken and then added the sweet little deer. The coordinating sentiment has been matted with gold card and added to the side of the layered dies and deer.

I have finished the card by adding the flowers and leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – Victorian Splendor Slimline to the sentiment and on the deer’s head.

Designers Tip:

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

Amazing Paper Grace | Make A Scene Collection Picture Perfect Special Day

Hi crafty friends!  It seems like we have been waiting for months for February to roll around.  We have been working in the background, holding our breath, tapping our feet and waiting on tippie toes to show you a new collection!  Ta-dah!!!  Today we are introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Collection called Make A Scene!!!  It was designed by Becca Feeken and is available at Spellbinders.  Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post. NOW, TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU . . . In the past, Becca has created several interactive collections . . remember 3D Vignettes and remember Shadowbox Vignettes?  One of the things Becca does, is she tries to create a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with past collections. That means new material for your old material. 

WHAT IS MAKE A SCENE? Make A Scene is an interactive card collection and a flat card collection, all in one – you choose based on your style.  The interactive portion is made with a card base that folds in six different layered scenery options.  The 3D card base folds flat but slides open to reveal a dimensional scene.  Since it has a 3D profile, the opened card makes quite a splash and can be set out on a desk for showing off.  The card base is huge and it offers you the chance to snag one of six scenes that cover many occasions.  If the six scenes are not your occasion du jour, then by all means dive into your huge stash of dies and insert your own contents.  The flat card portion is made with the individual scenes.  Each of the components for the scenes can be cut onto the top of a panel and used on a flat card or as part of a 3D Vignette or as part of a shadowbox scene. 

My Projects for Today

Today I’m using the the Amazing Paper Grace Picture Perfect Window Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken to make a card for any occasion. This scene has been framed using the Amazing Paper Grace Callista Rectangle Shadowbox Frame Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken. The sentiment has been added using the lovely Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene Card Base Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have used Heartfelt Creations Tulip Time paper to create my background to the scene.

How to Assemble:

When you see the card base it will make total sense how this goes together.  Here is a quick start video to lay it all out for you.

Amazing Paper Grace | Stained Glass Bouquet – Deco Bloom Grateful Thanks

It’s a miracle that little painted shards of glass can come together to create such beauty!!  The intriguing lure of Stained Glass has inspired artisans from around the world to try their hand at shuffling colors and shuffling shards of glass to create something lovely to gaze upon.  Today we are introducing the newest Amazing Paper Grace collection called Stained Glass Floral Bouquet, created for Spellbinders.

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

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Inspiration

Becca says that the inspiration for the collection came from her love of stained glass and never being able to muster the time to do it with real glass.  Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?  Now it’s easy to create with paper!  It’s amazing how you can give the same outline to a hand full of different artists and each will come up with a totally different look.

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection

The Stained Glass Bouquet Collection is made up of 7 different die sets.  They are sized for layering and include small designs all the way up to A7 designs with different frames that can make both A2 and A7 designs.  The collection boasts shadow dies for each set so that whenever you don’t want a multicolor design, you can layer your “die-cut leading” onto one color.  The hallmark of the collection is a sweet stained glass flower and shadow in almost every set.  That gives you a background die and a central motif for each set.  

Attention “technique junkies” this collection is sweetly serenading you to try your favorite technique with the leading and the shards. 

     Here are ours:

  1. Fill each opening with a different color paper and add Glossy Accent.
  2. Ink on a hombre background before resetting your shards.
  3. A smidge of color in each opening with a Copic Marker.
  4. A different color leading – white, black, gold, silver.
  5. Build up tall leading with 4 layers and adhesive in between each.

My Project for Today:

Today I am sharing a thank you card featuring the stunning Amazing Paper Grace Deco Bloom Etched Dies from Stained Glass Bouquet Collection by Becca Feeken. For this card I have used an elegant gold and ivory colour combination and trimmed the inner decorative die to create a centre piece to add handcrafted flowers and an elegant sentiment on. I love adding some texture and I have used the Spellbinders embossing folder – Simply Perfect Florets.

I have added flowers made using the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Etched Dies by Becca Feeken, the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity Amazing Paper Grace DOM Etched Dies by Becca Feeken, and the Amazing Paper Grace and the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V Etched Dies by Becca Feeken.

The leaves are made using dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies 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.

To learn how to make these pink camellias I have a tutorial on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/APGCreativeEncouragement.

Designers Tip:

Die cut the background first and then do a separate outline die and adhere to the background. Then die cut the colours and lay the die with the die cuts over the background and poke the little shards into the background. I found that quickest and easiest for me.
