Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Collection

Amazing Paper Grace has gone back to her roots with classic sewing inspired motifs! Introducing the Picot Petite Collection!

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies for me to try.

Over time we've had lace-inspired designs and have loved the feel of Hemstitching and Candlewicking. Reminiscent of needlework and treasured handwork proudly displayed, Becca Feeken has developed another classic line of layering shapes that feel so much like tatting or picot crochet.  As you might imagine, these shapes are crisp, clean, and timeless. Whether you are simply adding a classic layer to a card or cutting an aperture to highlight a lovely sentiment - these shapes mix and match with other sewing inspired motifs as well as intricate backdrops.

Today you're in luck! Our Creative Team is sharing makes from the Picot Petite Collection.

Classic Shapes are Timeless

With each Classic Collection, Amazing Paper Grace creates the most popular die-cutting shapes in oval, round, square, and rectangles. Moreover, these classic shapes mix and match with Hemstitch Classics, Candlewick Classics, Elegant Twist Classics, and now Picot Petit.

The Inspiration behind Picot Petite

If you've ever seen tatting, the little loop produced along the edge is called a "picot".  It's this little loop that is the basis for the border on all of the Petite Picot shapes.  They are lovely as a backdrop for any other layerings as the little picot peeks out.  It's just a subtle way to bring in the ways of classic needlework to give texture and dimension to the backdrop of our cards.

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with a classic picot flair.

My Projects For Today

First up is  S5-432 Picot Petite Squares by Spellbinders.

Here is what the dies look like:

Classic shapes dies are one of those must-have dies. You can simply create a card only with these dies or use them as a supplement.

For today's Blog Hop I prepared a card in pink-purple colours. I used small and medium squares. On the big one, I put a frame from gold and white paper. Under squares, I used foam tape to create dimension. 

I use Amazing Paper Grace flowers to embellish the card. The bigger flowers are made with S6-050 Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Flowers. Smaller flowers I made using small dies from July Die of The Month. The leaves are from  S4-1025 Sweet Cottage Flowers.

I stamped "It's Your Birthday" that comes from SDS-166 All Occasion Sentiments Stamp and Die Set

My second project is made in the same style using the same dies and stamp. I create a basket for sweet or small flowers.

Here is the Spellbinders video showing amazing new samples as well as a walkthrough of the entire collection.

  4. You always bat it out of the park with your creations. Your flowers add such depth to the makes. The purple flowers have that ridge in center with a little ruffling off of the spine. I don't know how you did that; but it is quite striking. Makes are simple, elegant and just plain beautiful!
