Happy Anniversary Vignette from Amazing Paper Grace | Spellbinders

Hi, my Crafty Friends
How do you start creating your cards? 
I usually begin by choosing the background paper. Then I decide what colours should be all elements on the card. All colours should cooperate and suit each other. In the present case, I choose the flowery paper and then I colored flowers with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. 

As a hero, I used S5-458 Happy Anniversary Vignette, and underneath I put S6-158 Grand Snow Globe from 3D Holiday Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken. 

I used small flowers from S3-420 Petite Floral Potpourri to decorate the card. 
I hope you like it and I inspire you to create another card.

 Thank you for stopping by

Heartfelt Thanks Vignette from Amazing Paper Grace | Spellbinders

Today I'm sharing a "Thank you" card. I used a set of dies from a new Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken.  This die can be used as an addition to the previous 3D Vignette dies. This set collaborates with the S6-164 Grand Crested Tower from 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection

I decorated my card with a small bow with jewellery.  I also added small elements from S4-1103 Fan Flower Transom.  The green paper is from  Paper Pad KPP-014 Express Yourself, Spellbinders.

Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace | Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes

Beautiful card front sentiments do the heavy lifting on a card and the recipient knows exactly what you are trying to say. In that spirit, today we are introducing a new collection called Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes. It spins beautiful, intertwined calligraphic words into a compact label shape, perfect for the front of your card.

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Inspiration

Many Amazing Paper Grace followers were so thrilled when the first 3D Vignettes with word inserts came out. Over time, our followers have asked for a greater variety of words to fit into the 3D Vignette apertures. Your wish is our command!

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection

The Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection is made up of 7 different die sets and a stamp set. Most sets contain a sentiment and a filigree background layer. Each set makes it quite easy to produce a complete card. The bonus is the sentiment shapes each match an existing 3D Vignette. Along with being able to complete a card, the new sentiments will allow another sentiment to existing 3D Vignettes already in your stash. Romantic Chargeour works with all the sentiments.

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection also contains an "inside" sentiment set that matches the thought on the outside of the card. To top off the collection we've included Petite Floral Potpourri
It's a compilation of all the small flowers and leaves that are most requested by our community.

My Projects for Today

I'm using S5-455 Birthday Wishes Vignette and S3-420-Petite-Floral-Potpourri. Inside my card I put a sentiment from STP-058 Beautiful Inside and Out Sentiments Clear Stamp.

My second Project

Today, I prepared two projects featuring S5-455 Birthday Wishes Vignette. This die is so elegant and versatile. 
Firstly, I made a card. I die cut a decorative insert with an outer rim twice, from white and gold paper. I  slightly offset the white piece and then glued them together. I used small flowers from Petite Floral Potpourri set to decorate my card.

My second project is a 3D Vignette. I used Birthday Wishes insert with S5-408 Grand Vaulted Cabinet from 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection. I die cut the sentiment twice and put them inside. The first layer of my creation is a window decorated with small flowers. I also put some leaves and flowers inside and glued them to the background. The front and the background is cut from the same paper. Inserts are from a white paper.

Shine Your Light | Glimmer Hot Foil from Amazing Paper Grace

Today, I'm sharing a summer card with a lighthouse from GLP-285 Shine Your Light Glimmer Hot Foil Plate. This set is from a stunning Sweet Cardlets II Collection.  Using Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System I foiled the sun and a lighthouse. 

My idea was to create a seaside scene with the lighthouse at the sea.

Waves are made from white paper and inked with blue ink. To make them I used Rolling Hill from S5-441 Rolling Along Scene. The sentiment is foiled with a blue foil. 

Thanks for stopping by

You are My Home | Glimmer Hot Foil Amazing Paper Grace | Spellbinders

 Hello Friends,

I prepared a foiled card using GLP-283 You are My Home Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set as a hero. I used a dark blue textured cardstock and die-cut it with S6-175 Hemstitch Slimline as a background

Using a different tone of blue paper I foiled small houses on them. I die cut them with coordinating die. On the bigger piece of light blue paper, I foiled a square with the sun and houses. 
I added a sentiment "Welcome to the neighborhood" which is included in the set. I decorated it with a small red heart. 

Have a nice day

Amazing Paper Grace June Die of the Month Blog Hop – Victorian Splendor Slimline

What's better than one world? Well, of course, it's the best of both worlds! 
Today we are introducing a new Slimline Die that is part of an A7 Card Front - we call it an all-in-one. Who knew that slimline could look so feminine - welcome the slim new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June 2021, Victorian Splendor Slimline.

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

Our inspiration is always being able to get the most out of a die set and this one scores high on the bar for functionality and feminine appeal. If you can imagine a "Card Creator" type of die that has an inset Slimline, a decorative inset Border, and a sentiment label that could all be used in a Card Front - then you'd be looking at Victorian Splendor Slimline. It has A2 and A7 elements. It functions as a Card Front and pretends to be a slimline - all in one.

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to use pieces of the set:
1. Pull the mini-sized slimline out and use it separately.
2. Inlay the border at the bottom and top of a landscape A7 Card.
3. Create a tall gatefold by folding in the border panel on two cuts of the A7 card front.

There are 10 dies included in the Victorian Splendor Slimline.

My Project Today using Victorian Splendor Slimline.

Today I prepared a simple Wedding card. I used a narrow pattern die to decorate a cover.  Second decorative die cut from a gold paper I put inside to decorate sentiments printed on a floral paper. 

My second creation is a bookmark. I printed a floral pattern and die cut using rectangle die from the set. I decorate it with a one slimline die cut. At the top and at the bottom I put another decorative element between two papers.

Today I'm sharing a slime card featuring Deer Friend Glimmer Hot Foil Plates. This set includes Deer plates and coordinate die, flowers plate and coordinate die and sweet sentiment "Deer Friend" plate.

I also used S6-175 Hemstitch Slimline from Amazing Paper Grace. From white paper, I die cut large and medium rectangles. The medium one I inked with Distress Oxide Ink - Spun Sugar and Kitsch Flamingo. Deers are foiled with gold and brown Glimmer foil rolls.
