Amazing Paper Grace June 2022 Die of the Month

Isn’t this just the cutest wee car!! And it is perfect for creating aa 3D Vignette as well as creating a flat card with this die set for weddings and/or road trips! I love making wedding cards and for my projects today I have taken my inspiration from the last scene on the movie Grease and also the card that was on the packet of the Spellbinders Sun Burst stencil.

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

There are 26 cutting dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Road Trip.

I have made two cards and added the decorated car over the bottom car with foam tape to create some dimension and depth.

The ‘Just Married’ sentiment fitted perfectly on the front – reminiscent of cars being decorated for the bridal party to depart on their honeymoon.

To create my background I have sponged some blue and yellow inks on a piece of white cardstock. To finish the background I have used Nuvo White Glimmer paste to create the rays using the Spellbinders Sun Burst stencil.

I have added some gorgeous small flowers using the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken set to embellish the fronts of both the 3D Vignette and the flat card.

I have placed the car on an angle on the card front to give the illusion of the car taking off into the sky.

I have kept to the same decorations on the 3D vignette to show that you can do the same which ever way you wish to create with this die set.

This car looks ready to drive away into the sunset!

I have kept the colours simple to help create a harmonious colour palette.

The 3D Vignette just folds down for easy posting!

Amazing Paper Grace Flowers With Love

Kia Ora Kouto

Today I have another card featuring the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace A2 Filigree Marquis Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken. I have been inspired by my Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team mate Rajni Chawla and how she snips decorative dies to create beautiful cards with lots of different layers. For my card I have used the inner decorative medallion die and created layers by snipping one die in half and and layering them behind the main medallion to fit a 5″ x 7″ card.

Today’s project was created with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

The flowers are created using the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken.

The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace With Love Regalia Card Builder Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken. This sentiment is so versatile and can be used for so many different occasions – birthday, wedding, sympathy and more.

The butterflies are from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken. They are such a sweet addition to any card.

The green leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Flowers Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. These leaves are so beautiful to use and the green really makes the pink flowers pop. The silver leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go III Etched Dies by Becca Feeken and make a great accent for this card.

To complete my card I have used a gorgeous embossing folder by Spellbinders – Diamond Plaid embossing folder.

Amazing Paper Grace Autumn Flowers

Kia Ora Koutou

I often take my inspiration from nature and yesterday I went out walking with my cat and saw some beautiful white hellebores growing in a vacant lot. It is now autumn here in New Zealand and the colours are changing and these flowers really popped. I took lots of photos as you do and thought that I would have a go and making some with the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken. I was pleasantly surprised at how these have turned out.

Today’s project was created with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

For my leaves I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken and I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken on the bottoms of the flowers to allow them to sit easily when I glued them on to the base card.

I love layering dies from different Amazing Paper Grace collections to create my base cards. For this card I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Slimline Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace A2 Radiant Navette Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Scalloped Symphony Notecard Etched Dies from Sweet Serenade Notecards Collection by Becca Feeken to create the base for the flowers. I have used a pretty floral embossing folder from Spellbinders to add some interest – Slimline Flora Embossing Folder from the Slimline Collection.

To complete my card I have used the sentiment die from the Amazing Paper Grace Picture Perfect Window Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken which fitted in well with the decorative circle die with the hearts in them. I finished with a little butterfly in the same colours as the card from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.

Some Very Exciting News!!

Kia Ora Koutou

I am soo excited to announce that I have been selected for the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team. This is a dream come true for me as I have been a massive fan of Becca Feeken and her beautiful and elegant dies for some time. I am so humbled to be in this team alongside the most talented paper crafters that I have followed and admired for so long.

To celebrate I have made a card mixing up some of my favourite Amazing Paper Grace dies – Candlewick Rectangles, Hemstitch Rectangles and Emmeline Treillage dies for a very simple yet elegant card. The sentiment is from the Sentiments One set.

This card was incredibly easy to make with these layering dies and great for weddings, birthdays and other special occasions.

I am looking forward to showcasing more Amazing Paper Grace projects in the upcoming months – watch this space…
