Let it Snow | Amazing Paper Grace

Let it Snow, let it snow, let it snow... 
Have you seen these snowmen before? I'm sure, you have. 
This week I made a card with two handsome snowmen holding banner "let it Snow". 

They come from S5-533 Let it Snowman from the Christmas Flourish Collection.

I added some snowflakes from the same set in blue and silver colour.

Noel is just around the corner

Today, I'm back with another simple Christmas card. This time I've made something different, I mean I used different colours as usual. 

As a background I used a dark blue paper and embossed it with Holly Flourish 2D Embossing Folder. Before I do it I wet the paper that helps me to enhance details. Moreover, the wet paper embose easier and looks better. 

On the top, I put red Noel Frames with sentiment "Noel". Holly leaves come from the same set S5-535
Noel Mini Slimline Frame

I hope you like it and my card inspire you to create Christmas card with this beautiful die.

Thank you

Amazing Paper Grace | The Postage Edge Shapes Collection Intro Blog Hop

Hello my Friends,

Today I'm presenting card and gift tags that can be added to boxes or bags featuring Postage Edge Squares.

Today's creations were made with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today
I'm so happy that I could use this set of square dies. Postage Edge Squares give so many possibilities as you can see in my pictures.

Here is the die I used: 

I have made a flat card 6x6 using so many colours. 

And here is my first Christmas tag.

I got back to the Christmas collection from a few years ago and used some dies from them. 
The sweet small tag that I used for all my cards comes from S6-153 - Shapeabilities Charming Cottage Box.  From the same set, I took the Christmas tree and Swirl Accent.
The sentiment "Jingle all the Way" comes from S4-1145 Jingle Word Frame from the Holiday Medley Collection.

At the top, I placed a sweet reindeer from GLP-287 Deer Friend Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set
I used a Hot Foil Glimmer System to foil the gold reindeer and the blue frame. 

I think the glossy frame suits perfectly to the new collection and it adds some luxury. It comes from GLP-283 You are My Home Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die. The blue foil is GLF-015 Glimmer Hot Foil Roll - Skybright.

My last Christmas gift tag is made in reddish colours.  The sentiment "Joy" is die cut from gold paper and it comes from S5-430 - Holiday Word Blocks- Christmas Cascade.  The small poinsettia comes from the same set.
The green leaves are from S5-535 - Noel Mini Slimline Frame.

Because Christmas time is just around the corner I made more Christmas cards than others. 
But as you can see, tags can be used for Birthday presents as well.

The sentiment "Happy Birthday" is taken from S4-1206 - Happy Occasion Words. You can find there much more sentiments. The flowers are coloured with inks. I used S5-484 - Primrose Heart Façade

I added some delicate leaves inked with Distress Ink Twisted Citron.

Amazing Paper Grace November 2022 Die of the Month

APG November 2022 created by Kate Skonieczna

When I saw this die, my first thoughts were to make something vintage. I've found a piece of brown paper with gears in my collection and used it as a base for my card. 

The 3D project is made in a shabby chic style  - delicate and bright. I used pink and green colours here.

Today's creations were created with the dies supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

There are 21 cutting dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Alarm Clock.

My 3D project is created in pink colours. The top card is a light pink and the cards inside the clock are with floral patterns. All embellishments are gold. The centre of the clock is die cut from a green paper

At the top of the clock I glued the sentiment "Happy Birthday" from other collection.

And here you go, my flat card. 
Created in these colours can be offered to woman as well as to man.

The darkest elements on my card are cut die from black cardstock. Then I used gold wax to add a vintage look. I think it looks great and enhances all details.

Merry Christmas in red

Hello, my Crafty Friends!

How are you today? I hope you all are fine. My today's card is a Christmas card made in white and red.

I hope you have not enough Holiday creations and look forward to enjoying the family time :)  

Firstly, I used the Holly Flourish embossing folder to make a fancy background. 

Then I die-cut a red Flourish Merry element and decorated it with gold Christmas balls.

The sentiment "Christmas" comes from the same set as the rest of my die cuts, from Merry Flourish
I die-cut it twice. The one is from white paper and the second is from a gold piece that I put underneath the white. I like the combination when I put the gold die cuts underneath the proper ones slightly displaced.
