Amazing Paper Grace March Die of the Month Blog Hop

Do you ever suffer from blank page syndrome?  Or you clear your schedule and your table and sit down to make a card, and bam - your mind goes blank.  That's why we're here!  We love bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month and today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop for March.

Since we all see things differently, it's our aim to show you how each of us approached designing with this die and the lovely pieces that are a part of it.  Our hope is that you snag a picture or two for your inspiration file and they come in handy next time you sit down to create.  Our list of links at the bottom of the post lead to all the inspiration.

The six pieces that make up Spun Blessings Oval combine to make a card front die, perfect for a background or you can creatively use all of the inlays for either accents or borders.  You may have noticed, it's a big die but the better to make alternative designs like the little baskets that help to create an ensemble.

My Card Today:

I did this card using only Die of the Month. To decorate I've used a peach ribbon and a foamiran flower. To get a light pink colour I used an oil pastel. In the middle of the flower, I put a white pearl.

My second Project Today:

To prepare this box I used Embossed Quality Card 280gsm. It's quite thick and it is perfect for 3D project. To obtain the mint colour of the paper, I mixed white and mint paints and painted the paper.
The flower is made from a white foamiran.

A handle is decorated with beautiful flowers from Spellbinders S4-982 - Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken

  7. Hi, Kate,
    I can't imagine a more perfect fit for this team-your craft is exquisite. Oh my goodness, you paint your paper to get the color you want! When I saw your cards on Becca's last post, I loved how you used snowflakes behind the poinsettia for interesting detail-brilliant!
    Blessings, Sandy
