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.

Baby Explosion Box

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I want to share with you a very special card that I made for a very special person.  This person has received this card so I am able to now share it.

I have made it using a combination of products as Heartfelt Creations do not have a baby collection.

 

Pretty in Silver and Pink

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have a different sort of card to what I usually make.  I have used Spellbinders dies and the sentiment is a Glimmer Hot Foil plate  from Becca Feeken.  Hot foiling is fabulous for quick and easy sentiments and designs.  The flowers are from Tattered Lace and the background paper is from the local Warehouse Stationary.  The silver card has not photographed well but it does look a lot better in person.

Roses for Mother’s Day

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I would like to share another Mother’s Day card that I have made with Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses and some Spellbinders dies.

I was inspired by Sabrina from Aspiring to Creativity for the lacy background but of course I had to add some Classic Roses.  I was really happy with how it turned out with all the texture and the combination of gold and ivory which makes the flowers and leaves to pop.

Merry Christmas

Kia Ora Koutou Meri Kirihimete

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2019.  There are going to be some major changes for me and I will be able to stretch and challenge myself on my artistic journey.  I am really looking forward to be able to spend more time on my art.

For my last post before Christmas I have a Christmas card I have made for a dear friend who has had a very challenging year and I hope that next year will be a much better year for her.

I have used Becca Feeken’s Grand Arch dies along with Heartfelt Creations flowers and images.  They make a perfect combination.

Once again I wish you all the best for the holiday season and I hope that you get some crafty time for yourself.

A Country Cottage Card

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have a lovely all occasion card that is positively smothered in lilacs.  I think this collection must be my all time favourite and I can’t get enough of the soft hues and the gorgeous papers.  The flowers are so easy to make.  Here I have used a Becca Feeken die – the Grand Cabinet  die and the cottage fitted inside this die so perfectly.  I have die cut three of the dies to add dimension.  I love adding the little birds from the Woodsy Wonderland collection as well.  They add life to the card.

I hope that I have inspired you to do something different with the lilacs.

Happy Crafting
