Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs

I love making floral cards and love the challenge of adding dimensional flowers with flat flowers and rose to the challenge creating the beautiful flowers using the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken and the pretty flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken for a bright and summery Thank You card.

Today’s projects created were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project for Today

For my project today I have created an 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card and created a base for the flowers using the Amazing Paper Grace Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies by Becca Feeken and a frame from the Amazing Paper Grace Candelwick Rectangles Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. The beautiful label from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken fits perfectly inside the frame. I have created flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken and the the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken to highlight the frame and the butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken is so beautiful!! To complete my card I have added a hot foiled sentiment from the Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Simply Perfect Collection.

I have used yellow, gold and white colours for a soft, summer background.

Some flowers have been coloured using ink blending and some flowers are made using coloured cardstock only.

I have added pearls to the centres of the flowers in the background.

I have added the frame to the card front using foam tape for more dimension.

Amazing Paper Grace Layered Tulips

My theme this week is Back in Black and today I have a card to share with you that features a black textured background with vibrant yellow tulips and a pretty blue die. I have not done a lot of cards with black so it was really good to challenge myself. I had a play with colour combinations and decided on black, blue, yellow and gold. Black and blue are an unusual combination but this worked for me as blue and yellow are primary colours and blue and yellow combine to make a secondary colour – green. By keeping the colours simple all the colours harmonised well I think. This combination also allows the tulips to really ‘pop’ on the card. And I have kept the gold accents to a minimum to allow the focus to be on the tulips.

I have an exclusive step by step photo tutorial on how I have created the tulips coming up on the 21st July (CST) for members of the Amazing Paper Grace – Creative Encouragement Group. Ask to join this wonderful community to view this tutorial and many other tutorials to inspire your creativity. (And don’t forget to answer the questions to get accepted. I look forward to seeing you there!).

Today’s projects were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project Today.

For my card I have made a 5″ x 7″ card featuring the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace Eyelet Lace Frame Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken as a frame for beautiful tulips from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Tulips Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken. I have created a textured background by using the decorative panel die from the Amazing Paper Grace Thank you for your Kindness Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken die cut twice and layered black on black. I have finished the card with a ‘thank you’ sentiment from the same die set.

To finish, I have added a sweet butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken

I have combined three different green coloured cardstocks to create more dimension and interest in the leaves.

I didn’t need to add any bling to this card as the tulips are the hero of the card and embellishments would detract from them.

The black decorative die on plain back cardstock makes a gorgeous texture.

I have die cut two sentiments – one gold and one black. The gold sentiment has been adhered to the black sentiment slightly offsetting it to create a shadow.
