Amazing Paper Grace January Die of the Month Blog Hop



Good morning!!  Like every month, we'll love bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month; today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop!   This month we have the most elegant of elegant dies that are designed to allow you to cut the die then slip a card into position.  

The Lacework Finery Slip-In Card Die has a tiara-like motif that can be used with the corner pieces or without.  If you are looking for a subdued card, why not use the corner pieces only?  All of the pieces are inlaid, you can use them alone or together to get the look you want.   

Everyone on the Creative Team has joined in today to give you their spin, in their style.  We hope you'll see something that resonates and inspires you.

If you are new to our blogs, the Die of the Month is an exclusive die Becca has designed for Spellbinders - it is called the Lacework Finery Slip-In Card Die.  This particular set has 10 dies and they can be used to make a background, a slip-in card, or a frame with decorative corners, while the individual dies in the set can be used for many things.  Oh, and to make the set complete, there are flowers!

My Card Today:

I created 2 different projects today to show you that you can do more than just cards if you want.  My pink card uses the sliding method that Becca showed in her You Tube video but i trimmed it down and then added the pink piece over the top to make a double lace front.  


This die set also comes with a gorgeous set of 3 flowers so i created 3 of them and added larger stamens and some tiny silk ribbon underneath the center of them.


And of course a few rhinestones and some sparkly glitter just to dust it.


And for this beautiful little gift box i repurposed a small empty tea box with plain paper and then cut out the lace die to fold over the top and cut out the corners to added beautiful detail to the edges. Under the bow is a layer of silver mirror card with a matching blue mat to make it pop.

A very fancy Miss you card


I am a little late this week on my post only because it was my Birthday yesterday and i spent the day out and about having fun and going to lunch and a movie.  But i finished one of my favorite cards to share with all of you using the Glimmer plates by Becca Feeken with some fancy gold foils.  


When starting my cards i always look around for something really pretty to be the base of my card.  I used the " Elegant Oval Plates" large plate to make the base on a slightly glimmered piece of ivory paper.  It worked beautifully.  Then i used the Elegant Affirmation Sentiment that said "Miss you" and used the same foil to heat it with.  This die contains an extra outside edge to cut it out so i did that and popped it up on the upper part of the center.  Then i filled the lower edge with lots of flowers that had that same golden tone to it underneath.  I love making flowers,  don't get me wrong,  but sometimes you find the perfect ones and when you get in a time crunch... they are the best!!  


And then to finish it i layered a robins egg blue mat then gold, then ivory and then a light tan card stock to make the base.  Under the gold i popped it up with 3D foam dots to make the color stand out more.  I love all the pretty gold swirls on this set and how easy it was to make yet how fancy it is.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hopefully starting with next weeks post i can give you directions for all the things i am making for Becca.....

Have and amazing week.... Teresa

Happy New Year with Glimmer


Happy New Year and how exciting to begin again with a clean slate and lots of ideas for fun things to make this year.  Our team is still sharing our ideas with Becca's glimmer plates this month so be sure and check out the rest of our teams ideas too.  There are so many beautiful plates to use it's hard to decide which one to use!!  

So for my sweet card today i decided to combine the new "Foil Flowers" with the "Elegant Occasion Sentiments" to make a gorgeous birthday card to send to my family sister for her birthday.  My base colors were pink and ivory so i combined the light pink foil on pink paper for the flowers and used gold foil for the Happy Birthday sentiment and the accents.  Pink and gold are one of my favorite combinations so this was easy to put together.


And to give it more depth i used an old texture plate from Spellbinders and also Becca's Hemstitch Oval to cut the sentiment out with which made it super feminine and added another pretty detail to it.

The flowers I actually cut in half to use on both sides of the oval and tucked them under and layered other pieces over the top edges.  It's less to do and still gives it a balanced look.

And all the layers i attached with 3D Foam dots on an ivory card base.  Simple and easy peasy!!

So that's it for my first post of the year but i promise lots of fun inspiration in the months ahead with all the new things Becca Feeken is coming out with this year!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by

Last Minute Christmas Cards


I am so excited to share my newest card i just made with all of you.  I am a true lover of all things victorian and i think this card really says alot about that.  I love all the tiny details in all the dies and the glimmer plates and mixing them.... well that is the best part.  

There are a dozen colors that you can get in the glimmer but this pink i used for the Joy plate really was gorgeous.  I also used Becca Feeken's newest plate called " Elegant Oval".  It has a mixture of gorgeous swirls and a sentiment but for this i only used the outside piece and heated it with the silver foil.  



And then after all the pieces were done i layered them with 3D foam squares and added some ribbon through the side and a pretty bow.


And then I added the tiniest of rhinestones to that beautiful ornament and the sides of the swirls.  It's so pretty in person and i know the perfect person to give it to. 

Thank you for stopping over today and i hope that you and your families have a very Merry and Festive Holiday season.  And don't forget to check back with us for all the new things from Becca Feeken in the New Year.... it's going to be amazing as always!!

    Hugs and Smiles!!

A little bit of Festive Wrapping


It's getting closer to Christmas  ( only a week away now- yikes) so i am trying to get some things wrapped this weekend and get ahead before we have all of our family get togethers.  Today i am sharing a decorated box i created to put in a special gift that i made.  I started with just a simple white box that you can get from your local craft store and then added some Christmas paper and foil card stock to match my new foil plate from Becca Feeken that i used on the top.


This plate is called "Elegant Circle Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Classic Plates by Becca Feeken".  It's a beautiful set of 2 plates that can be done together or separate and added for a 3D effect.  I used the two outer plates on white card stock and then added this gorgeous poinsettia and lots of rhinestones.


Here is a quick view of the top with all that glorious glimmer.  It's super easy to do and just a tip for you... let the plate heat up really good and then when you run it through your machine,  go slow and do it 2X.  I like to let it set for a second and then i gently peel off the glimmer.  It's amazing and you will love what you can do with all of these plates for things......

Thank you so much for stopping by and see you all next week!!

Happy Holidays... Teresa

If you are new to our blogs, the Die of the Month is an exclusive die Becca has designed for Spellbinders - it is called Softly Spoke'n Flip and Gatefold Die.  This particular set has 9 dies and they can be used to make a background, a gatefold card, a tent card and the individual dies in the set can be used for many things.

My First Project:


      I love to make money cards so using the beautiful die this month to create one for a birthday coming up in the family was just perfect.  I created the fold over part of the die for the front and made a small pocket inside to add the money for the gift.  And behind that i added another layer for a sentiment.  Each layer is carefully matted with off white and a light pink to make the beautiful details in the die really shine.



 Here is a peek at the inside and the pocket that i created.  The die has a fold on it so i created a small one to fold up for the money pocket.


I really love the center pieces in this set and this will be fun to mix with other dies.

My second project using this new die set is:


This shadowbox frame i made for a family friend of his grandparents.  It's such a gorgeous picture and deserves to be out on a table to admire.  Imagine doing this for a wedding gift, wouldn't that be nice!


Supplies: 

Papers: for both projects you will just need basic card stock in ivory, light pink and some gold.  

Ribbon: Silk from the Stamp Simply Ribbon store

Rhinestones and Pearls: Micheal's Craft Store
