Introducing 3D Holiday Vignettes Blog Hop and Glimmer

Way back when 3D Vignettes were introduced, messages started to come in by crafters begging for the same thing, but for Christmas. You also asked that we keep supplying new inserts. Well, your wish is our command! Introducing 3D Holiday Vignettes plus new Glimmer Designs. If you are not familiar with these popular dies, stay tuned - lots of information follows.

Hi there, today we are sharing with you a great new collection by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace with a blog hop featuring new Vignettes for the holidays and the new Holiday Glimmer Designs will blow your socks off.  So.....

What's a 3D Vignette?

A 3D Vignette is a dimensional card that folds down flat. It has a front layer, a back layer and several in between layers that are held stable by slotted side pieces. These layers allow you to build depth into a diorama or tunnel type card. We take all of the guesswork out of the equation by giving you mix and match layers, including sentiments to stack into a Vignette.
So far, we've released 3D Vignettes and Shadowbox Vignettes.

What's more, you can use your own supplies to fill them up as well. The bonus is that each of these layers also works for your other types of cards you make.  A budget crafter from day one, Becca keeps the "mix and match" sensibility alive in Holiday Vignettes so that you get a lot of bang for your buck.  What does that mean?

1.  These vignettes are interchangeable with your other vignettes.
2.  Holiday Designs can be used for non-holiday designs after the season.
3.  You can use these elements to make flat, stand-alone cards too.

About 3D Holiday Vignettes

Layered Die sets were introduced with 3D Vignettes and people quickly realized you could use individual elements in flat cards or you could use them layered together in a diorama.
Shadowbox Vignettes continued the tradition and as you might guess, these new layering sets can be used in both Shadowbox Vignettes and 3D Vignettes.

3D Holiday features three new facades (each including a sentiment) using the same shapes that came in the original 3D Vignettes - Round (snow globe), Arch, and Cabinet.

In addition, there is a new layering set for each - a round set, an arch set and a set to fit the new cabinet.  Join us as we give you a full-on look at all of the new sets.

My Projects For Today:
First up is Reindeer Prance Layering Set Etched Dies 3D Holiday Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken  is a set of three dies that coordinate with S6-139 Grand Cabinet 3D Card Etched Dies set.

I put four layers of Reindeer Prance Layering Set. Two ornaments layers and two with reindeer. Flowers are made from Poinsettia die (S4-960) from a Charming Christmas Collection. I decorated them with gold glitter.

Here is what the plate actually looks like.

I created a Christmas lantern as well.

Firstly I glued a red layer and vellum paper together. I connected them using red paper.
On the top of each window, I put two layers with a reindeer. I made a little dimension using 3D tape.

These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE

Amazing Paper Grace August Die of the Month Blog Hop

We're so tickled to get to show you a new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for August called Elegant Knots.  Becca's dies don't normally have an abundance of embossing but this one has a ridge throughout the design so that it can be stenciled to add charm.  When released on August 1st Becca showed how easy it was to use for Valentines Day, Christmas and an anniversary - it goes with everything!! Each one of us has taken the die and spun it into a creation.
Please join us as we bring you more inspiration.

I really like the Elegant Knots dies. This is a set of 4 dies which can cut and emboss. Instead of an outer frame, I can use a rim die with an inner pattern to make a little bigger die cut.
With this amazing set, we have the possibility of making a big variety of cards or 3D items.
Today I prepared two different cards, elegant and floral.

My Project Today:

I prepared a base card using only the inner pattern die and a rim die. I cut two pieces and glued them together. 

I decorated the base card with one vertical, creme pattern shape. Then I cut two the same patterns, gold and white. While adhering them, I offset them a little and put them horizontally on my card.

I decorated my card with two little foamiran flowers and ribbon bow.

My 2 project:

My second card is A5 size. As a background, I used a floral paper. I die cut the Elegant Knots from floral paper as well. 
I decorated a card with foamiran flowers and white bow.

The sentiment "Wishing You Happiness" is printed.

Supply List:
Stamps: "Happy Birthday" (made by myself),
Paper: Neutral Linen Textured Card A4, gold mirror paper, Meadow Impressions paper
Ink: black ink
Accessories: ribbon, foamiran, soft pastels, embelishment, Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for August,
