Amazing Paper Grace 3D Vignette Retro TV

I have another bright and cheerful card to share with you today with a real groovy feel. My card today showcases the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace 3D Retro TV Vignette Etched Dies by Becca Feeken from the Amazing Paper Grace 3D Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken. I love the attention to detail with this set and it reminds me of the television in the movie Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original movie with Gene Wilder) where the little boy gets pulled into the television. This set is just so the 60’s and because I already had the flowers made this card came together very quickly which is always a bonus!

Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.

My Project:

My card base is 4 14″ x 5 1/2″ and have used the gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Marquis Etched Dies by Becca Feeken as a background for the Amazing Paper Grace 3D Retro TV Vignette Etched Dies by Becca Feeken to sit on top. I have created a shaker element for the screen to add interest to the retro television. To finish the card I have added some handcrafted flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV Flower Etched Dies and the leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace 3D Retro TV Vignette Etched Dies by Becca Feeken.

Hooray It’s Your Birthday

I had a few birthday cards to do at the end of last year and I was so pleased to have Amazing Paper Grace dies on hand to make very quick and easy cards. This card is for my brother-in-law who loves gardening and I was inspired by Becca Feeken’s beautiful blue flowers using the Amazing Paper Grace April 2022 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Watering Can. This card is perfect for a masculine card that also features flowers. Men do like flowers and my brother-in-law loved the card which is the main thing.

Sending Amazing Paper Grace Hugs

I simply can’t get enough of the Amazing Paper Grace The Home Sweet Quilt Collection by Becca Feeken. They are fantastic to add decorative panels to cards and today I have another card for you featuring the Amazing Paper Grace Log Cabin and Flower Mini Quilts Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. I have been inspired for this card by Yasmin Diaz who is an influencer for Spellbinders. She does amazing cards using a white on white theme and I have carried this theme through to my card but of course I had to add my handcrafted flowers and butterflies to make this card my own.

Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.

My Project

For my card today I have created a base card of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ out of Snowdrift cardstock. I have then embossed a piece of 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Snowdrift cardstock partially at the top and bottom using the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel Quilt Embossing Folder. I have heat embossed the sentiment in gold and then adhered the card to the front. I have created the quilted panel using a combination of Snowdrift and gold cardstock from the Amazing Paper Grace Log Cabin and Flower Mini Quilts Etched Dies and adhered the panel to the top of the card front as shown. To finish I have added some handcrafted flowers and leaves made from the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies and a pretty butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies.

I die cut an extra outline for the quilted panel to create extra depth and dimension to the quilted panel.

I have scored two lines top and bottom of the embossing to finish the panel for the sentiment.

The butterfly base has been made from vellum coloured with Saltwater Taffy and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks to coordinate with the flowers.

I have added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to the flowers and leaves for a shiny finish.

Amazing Paper Grace Quilty Hugs and Daisies

We are in ‘summer time’ here in New Zealand but since the start of the new year we have had a lot of rain and little sunshine so I thought I would cheer myself up with a bright and summery card using the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace Quilted Stained Glass Window Etched Dies from Home Sweet Quilt Collection by Becca Feeken from the The Home Sweet Quilt Collection. I used a cheerful yellow and white combination and decorated my card with handcrafted daisies and a sweet butterfly. This card certainly brightened my craft room!

Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.

My Project:

For my project today I have created a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ base from Snowdrift cardstock. I have embossed a piece of 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ Chamomile cardstock using the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel Quilt Embossing Folder and layered it on top of the card. I have created a semi-circle using the quilt dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Quilted Stained Glass Window Etched Dies and inlaid with Beeswax and Chamomile to achieve a starburst effect. I have placed this semicircle on my card front and added a lace band to the left using the Amazing Paper Grace Romantic Slimline Borders Etched Dies for my flowers to lie on.

To complete my card I have handcrafted daisies from the Amazing Paper Grace Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Dies and the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V flowers and added them to the band on the left of the semi-circle. I added leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies and the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – August 2022 Peekaboo Trellis from Rainforest and Peridot cardstock.

No floral card is complete without a butterfly and I have added a sweet butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies.

Finally I have added the sentiment dies from the mazing Paper Grace Log Cabin and Flower Mini Quilts Etched Dies in gold.

There is a tutorial in the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Community on how I have made these flowers here. If you are not a member feel free to ask to join and don’t forget to answer the questions.

I have used two different colours of yellow to represent the sun.

I have die cut two sentiments – one from Snowdrift and one from gold cardstock and stacked them together with the gold on top before adding them to the card front.

I have used the same colours from the card in the butterfly to help with tying the whole card together.

The green foliage helps the daisies really pop on the side of the card.

I have used two different sets of daisy flower dies to create depth and dimension for my florals.

Amazing Paper Grace Quilty Friends

I am learning so much about quilting patterns using the Amazing Paper Grace The Home Sweet Quilt Collection – I never realised that there were so many different combinations you can get with one pattern! I have been late to the ink blending party and I have admired all those that ink blend with ease. Today I have a pretty pink and feminine card to share with you featuring the gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Eight Point Star Etched Dies from Home Sweet Quilt Collection by Becca Feeken. I have ink blended the background for a soft and romantic feel to the card and allow the quilted pattern to shine. Handcrafted flowers, a sweet butterfly and white satin bows add a shabby chic finish.

Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.

My Project

For my card I have created a base card of 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″. I have added some Picked Raspberry ink to one side of the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel Quilt Embossing Folder before embossing the white cardstock. This gave me a soft pink embossed card to add over a silver layer on the card front. I have added white and silver layers over the embossed card using the largest dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Squares Etched dies. I have ink blended the backgrounds of the Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Eight Point Star Etched Dies before adding the outline and decorative dies in white on top. I decided to keep the decorative elements to a minimum and just create a star. I have used inked vellum for the centre motifs and then added the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Quilty Hugs Sentiments Clear Stamp which has been die cut using the sentiment strip die from the Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Eight Point Star Etched Dies. To finish I have added a mix of dimensional and flat flowers using the flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Spring Label Motifs Etched Dies,mazing Paper Grace Spring Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies and the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Flowers V Etched Dies. The butterfly has been made from vellum and is from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies. I finished the card with pearls around the edge of the quilted motif.

I put all the base pieces into the pattern and taped them together so I could ink blend the pieces from the centre out. This way I was able to get an even blend.

I inked the centre background motif on vellum with picked Raspberry. I then layered the vellum onto white cardstock before adding to the centre of the card as shown.

I die cut 4 layers of the sentiment die and stacked them together for more dimension.

Designers Tip:

I would place the quilt bases on the card front first before adding the outline and decorative inlay dies to the front. I ended up adding a row of pearls to kept the outer edge straight.
