Scallop Façade Frame from "Make a Scene" Collection

Hello Crafty Friends, 
I hope you all are ok and stay safe. Today I'm sharing my new card made with dies from a new collection "Make a Scene" designed by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace, from Spellbinders. 

I prepared an A5 card using S6-168 The Scallop Façade Frame Etched Dies as a part of the Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace.

I stamped "Celebrating You" from STP-025 Make a Scene Sentiments Clear Stamp Set and put it on the die-cut from S5-435 Elegant Adornments.

 The flowers are handmade using S5-436 Grand Cinch and Go Flowers. This set has 5 different sizes of a six-petal flowers and one leaf. 

Thank you

Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace | Make A Scene Collection

Hi crafty friends! It seems like we have been waiting for months for February to roll around. We have been working in the background, holding our breath, tapping our feet and waiting on tippie toes to show you a new collection! Ta-dah!!! Today we are introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Collection called Make A Scene!!!  
It was designed by Becca Feeken and is available at Spellbinders
Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post.


In the past, Becca has created several interactive collections . . remember 3D Vignettes and remember Shadowbox Vignettes? One of the things Becca does, is she tries to create a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with past collections. That means new material for your old material.


Make A Scene is an interactive card collection and a flat card collection, all in one - you choose based on your style.

The interactive portion is made with a card base that folds in six different layered scenery options. The 3D card base folds flat but slides open to reveal a dimensional scene. Since it has a 3D profile, the opened card makes quite a splash and can be set out on a desk for showing off. The card base is huge and it offers you the chance to snag one of six scenes that cover many occasions. If the six scenes are not your occasion du jour, then by all means dive into your huge stash of dies and insert your own contents.

The flat card portion is made with the individual scenes. Each of the components for the scenes can be cut onto the top of a panel and used on a flat card or as part of a 3D Vignette or as part of a shadowbox scene.

Today we are prepared to show you - each Creative Team Member has created both a 3D Card and a Flat Card so that you can see the best of both worlds!

My Projects for Today

I'm using S6-165 Make a Scene Card Base and S5-441 Rolling Along Scene. 

My project for today is the interactive and flat card. For my first card, I used lots of colorful cardstock
To decorate a card's face I used a Scallop Facade Face and small flowers.
My second card is a slime card with two cut-out circles. I arranged small scenes there. 

Designers Tip: For the Interactive card I used 230gsm paper. The thicker the paper the stable the card is. If you use salient elements like flowers or cats a good idea is to glue a thick cardstock under to make elements more stable.

How to Assemble:
When you see the card base it will make total sense how this goes together. Here is a quick start video to lay it all out for you.

Filigree Drop In Circlet Doily

 Hello my Friends

Today I'd like to show you my simple card created with S5-405 Filigree Drop In Circlet Doily. I die-cut a white Circle Grid with Filigree Inserts. I put a white circle in the center. I foiled a sentiment "For My Beautiful Friend" from GLP-218 Heart Melt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set.

I used  S4-1022 Candlewick Grand Pocket to create small flowers and I decorated my card. 

Thank you,
Have a nice day, Kate

Just Bee - Glimmer Hot Foil Plate

Hi everyone, I hope you all are ok and safe.

Today I'd like to show you a simple card using a Glimmer Hot Foil Plate GLP-237 Just Bee-cause Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set.

Firstly I prepared my background using JD-043Watercolors Set Neutrals ArtEssentials by Jane Davenport.
Then I adhered the watercolor paper on the black cardstock. 

I glimmered the honeycomb in Glos Gold onto white paper. Then I did the same with small bees using gold and black foils. I found the sentiment "Happy Birthday" in my staff so I decided to use it. 
I arranged everything together on the card and voila :) This sentiment is from GLP-033 Elegant Occasion Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Classic Plates by Becca Feeken.
Under my elements, I used 3D tape to make a distance.

Amazing Paper Grace February Die of the Month Blog Hop – Bella Diamante

This month's Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month is an elegant tall card with a diamond motif as a focal point. It's a new shape to the line-up and today I'm introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for February 2021, Bella Diamante.

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these stunning dies to create with.

Becca says a book cover with had four elegant corners inspired her, she thought it was a dreamy and dramatic way to showcase a frame. Bella Diamante is a 5 x 7 card front, with several element layers and rims to use as inlays. These multiple rims and elements will allow for both A2 and A7 cards. Elegance reigns supreme with the ability to create shaped cards, framed cards, or simply embellish with class.

There are 7 dies included in the Bella Diamante

My Project Today using Bella Diamante
I prepared a shaped card from white paper. On the top I glued a gold frame and gold and mint pattern. The sentiment was printed and die cut. 
Using a small flower die included in a set I made some flowers and decorated my card.

My second project is a small box. Using a a big die a created a lid to my box. On the top I put 3 small flowers with a bow.

Stamps: none
Paper: white, mint, and gold paper, Lilac Moments
Ink: Distress Ink Twisted Citron
Accessories: Amazing Paper Grace February 2021 Die of the Month - Bella Diamante
