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 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.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Kia Ora Koutou

We all love interactive and kinetic cards! Introducing the Christmas Cascade Collection!

This holiday collection allows you to make a Cascading Card inside of a Shadowbox Frame, mounted on a card base or unmounted. Don’t worry, these motifs make great conventional cards as well.

We listened to you, and we heard loud and clear that our community loves dynamic and purposeful cards. In previous collections we gave you 3D Vignettes in a Christmas way.  Now we’ve found a way to merge a Collection favorite, Shadowbox Vignettes, in a new format.   

Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to start my Christmas Card making!

What’s a Christmas Cascade?
Amazing Paper Grace takes a spin on Christmas by building a new collection around something you already have in your stash – the Shadowbox Dies.  Becca loves building upon what you already have and making it new again. 

Christmas Cascade is made up of sets of 3″ motif dies where each set has 3 motifs.  That’s enough for each leaf of your waterfall but again, you could make them the center of your A2 or your A7 card. These, paired with the Waterfall base will allow you to use any dies to make your next Waterfall Card.

The Inspiration behind Christmas Cascade

The inspiration for Christmas Cascade was to produce a motif to use from an enclosure card all the way up to full A7 card with background layers.  This “cardlet” size has been a favorite in our stash because the elements can easily transition into all of the Amazing Paper Grace Collections and to all size cards.  Hint:  This is not the last time you will see “Cardlets”

Today I am really excited to share with you a very elegant card made with the gorgeous new Elegant Holiday Glimmer Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken. I have embellished this card with the beautiful poinsettias from the Shapeabilities Cinch and Go Poinsettia Etched Dies Etched Dies A Charming Christmas Collection by Becca Feeken as well as adding some accents from the Christmas Cascade Collection – Snowflake Splendor Etched Dies Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken and the Holly Frame Gala Etched Dies Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken. The background die is the beautiful Shapeabilities Ornamental Valance Etched Dies Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken.

If you want to learn how to make these blue poinsettias I have a free video here on the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Encouragement Facebook Group on Facebook.

I am so happy to have most of my Christmas cards done early for a change and it has been so easy with the Christmas Cascade collection.
