You're A True Friend - Rosa Diamante

I used a turquoise paper as a background and then a mint paper.

I used:

Amazing Paper Grace March Die of the Month Blog Hop

News Flash!!!

  We are tickled to make a special little announcement!  

          Today is the Grand Opening of a new Facebook Group  
or here is the link: 

Won't you stop by and join today?  We have a new member survey for everyone to fill out after joining and two lucky Gracelets will win new dies. 
Don't forget to come back here and enjoy the inspiration that awaits from the creative team and the serene ways they have worked up the Die of the Month. 

* * * * * * * * 

It's a circle!  It's a square!  It's a circle in a square!  This little template weighs in at 4" x 4" and packs a powerful punch with the ability to use each of the elements for a whole host of cards.  This month we are tickled to share Elegant Infinity.

As always the rims make this die set so very versatile.  It was designed for the circle to be included or not included.  It was designed so that it could have an intricate center or not.  It was also designed so that the corners are scaled to fit inside (trim corner) leaving one line width open for the die-cut words.  We hope you love all the options!

Here are the dies included in the set:

My Project Today:

I wanted to create a mini basket but in the middle of my work I put my basket upside down and I saw that it looks great. So I decided to finish that as a mini table with a label "Congrats".

Legs are made from beautiful corners. I die cut 8 pieces and joined two together four times. I prepare this way my base. On the top, I put circle pattern and a label "Congrats" decorated with flowers.
I use dies from the set to create flowers and my favourite Candlewick Rosebud.

I prepared a card matching for my first project. I use every die from the set of DOM. I really love it.
There are so many elements giving you lots of possibilities to create. And the flowers.... simply amazing, so delicate and sweet.

Supply List:
Stamps: none
Paper: creme cardboard, gold mirror cardboard, Scrapandme paper

The Introducing Flourished Fretwork Blog Hop

The Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team and I are so thrilled to be able to show you the new dies that are a part of the  Flourished Fretwork Collection.  Hop through with all of the designers to see what they have made!

Inspiration for Flourished Fretwork 

Becca wanted to make the Flourished Fretwork dies to have a very wide appeal so the dies are created to do many things.  The dies were designed so that they could be layered on top of or behind so many of the dies you have in your stash.  They are also designed as the central point to an A7 card but are also small enough that they can make A2 cards as well.

This collection is full of rims and the ability to create shadow layers, each die gives you several options.  Whether you like an intricate layer or the solid layer, the choice is yours!

My Project For Today:

I'm tickled to introduce S4-1047 Richelieu Square Etched Dies Flourished Fretwork.
I created a Wedding card 6x6.

Firstly I die-cut the small square inlay from white paper and cut it in half. I adhered them on the opposite side of the card.
Next, I die-cut the large square from white cardstock. Again I used a small square die. I cut two pieces, creme and gold and adhered them on the top of the other slightly offset them.
I repeated this process one more time with a circle.
In the middle, I put a small tag with "It's Your Wedding" sentiment.
I decorated my card with a bow and flower

My second Project 

I created an exploding box with a cake inside. The sweets or little gift can be put inside the box instead of cake. On top of my handmade little cake, I put a rose made with Sweet Cottage Flowers.  On the box's lid is a flower as well made with the same die but I created it in a different way.

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