Elegant Twist Oval | Floral card

Hi my Friends,

Today I am sharing a floral card featuring Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken.
I'd wanted to create something simple and I decided to colour the flowers and add to my card.

I started by colouring the flowers. I tried to colour them with pink alcohol markers but I wasn't happy with the result. So I chose purple. Then I had to find a coordinated paper with the flowers' colour. I chose a very light purple-green pattern that looks great. 

I embellished the card with little purple pearls.

I hope you like it because it was my first attempt to colour with alcohol markers :)

Elegant Twist Circles | Hello

Hello my Friends,
I'm sharing a "Hello" card featuring Elegant Twist Circles Dies designed by Becca Feeken. I used my favourite colours: pink and mint.

I love vintage style cards. I used a "Vintage Photo" distress ink on the background to add a little colour on the edge of a card and I stamped a script on it.
In the middle, just around the clock, I adhered a large ring. I cut it using the outer and inner rim and pattern between. I used a foam 3D tape to add a dimension.  In the same way, I die-cut a middle size ring and fit it a little under. 

I cut the Stamperia flowers right up to the edge using my little scissors and put them on the bigger circle.

In the middle, I put the small circle. I stamped it using a Script Stamp.  Then I add a sentiment "Hello" with the coordinated background.  Lastly, I embellished my card with handmade flowers.

Elegant Twist Oval by Becca Feeken | Floral card

Hello Friends,

Today I have an inspiration card to show you how you can use a Spellbinders dies from a new Collection the Elegant Twist designed by Becca Feeken to create a simple and beautiful project.

Onto floral background, I put a large oval die cut. I used an outer rim and pattern together to cut this.  I used the same combination with a  medium oval. I die cut it from the floral paper, the same as the background. To make a dimension I use a 3D tape to adhere them together.

I didn't add any handmade flowers this time. Instead, I cut out some flowers and put them between two ovals.

The sentiment is printed out. I have a very limited staff of stamps so printing it is the best way to create some sentiments for me.

Have a good week 😍

Amazing Paper Grace July Die of the Month Blog Hop - Fanfare

Hello Gracelets!!  You are about to fall in love with the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for July 2020 – Fanfare.  This large filigree filled oval reminds us of an oval doily. The open aperture center works like a frame for images or even a shaker. Use only half to make it appear rounded or as a border or pocket. The fan motif can be cut, tucked in, or layered to create a number of embellishments in no time. Ahhhh, romance, can you ever get enough?

Thank you Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace for the dies to use today.

  8. Fold in half to make a pocket
How many ideas do you have?

There are SIX dies included in the Fanfare set

My Project Today using Fanfare

This month I prepared a card 13x18cm and a napkin holder. This set of dies is so amazing that I decided to create a simple card to show the uniqueness and style of this set.

I adhered a pale pink paper onto my card as a background. Anyway, I love this colour. 
I die cut a shape from a dust blue paper and white and gold a decorative pattern die cut. 

The sentiment is printed. In a graphic programme, I usually match the size of my sentiment to the size of the die-cut and then I print it.  

I embellished my card with handmade flowers made with dies from July DOM.

If you want to decorate your table or put something unique you can create a napkin holder using July DOM.  It's very easy to make. You only need to die cut the shape with a decorative pattern. Then cut it in a half and then you have 2 sides of your holder. To hold the napkins inside I put there a small box.

- gold mirror paper
- ribbon, pearls

Elegant Twist Oval by Becca Feeken | Simple card

Hello friends! Today I have one simple card to share. 

It's been long since I wanted to create something simple. I love this kind of cards but during creating I always have an impression that my card is too simple :)
But it is said that the less the better.

Firstly, I've printed beautiful watercolour flowers twice. One for background and another for my oval die cut from Elegant Twist Oval by Becca Feeken I cut a large outer rim with a pattern from a white paper. The medium oval has been cut from printed paper and matched to the background.

I foiled a sentiment "You are on my mind" from Border and Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates designed by Becca Feeken. This set includes two five-inch braided borders and seven phrases: I’m here for you always; I care!; Hello, Lovely!; You are on my mind; You’ve got this!; I will never forget; your kindness.

To add some cuteness I embellished my card with handmade flowers. I used amazing little dies from Candlewick Pocket.

Summer card

Happy Monday Friends!

Today I have a card to share featuring the Spellbinders new Collection designed by Becca Feeken. 
This Collection is called the Elegant Twist and it contains 6 sets of dies.

For this card, I used outer rim and pattern together from the large square and the same combination with a  medium square. 

To create a sentiment I foiled one "You are on my mind". This comes from Borders and Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken. On the picture, it seems silver but in reality, the colour is changing depending on what angle you look at it.

I embellished my card with handmade flowers (APG June Die of the Month) and leaves
