Chantilly Lace introduces Hannah Elise

I have another card to share today that i did using another one of my favorite dies from the new Chantilly Lace collection from Becca Feeken and Spellbinders.  This beautiful die is called "Shapeabilities Hannah Elise".  It's such a gorgeous die set and has such beautiful pieces in it and i paired it with my favorite Hemstitch Rectangles, Cinch and Go Flowers Two and Isadora Trinkets.  

The yummy pink printed papers are from Maja Design and that too is one of my favorite companies to pair these gorgeous dies with.  And the flowers were really easy and fun to make and since i die cut them from the same papers they matched perfectly.  I am going to have to give this to someone really special.... I really like how this card came out.

And....If you haven't joined our hop yet be sure and go to the Amazing Paper Grace blog and check it out.  We have lots of prizes and wonderful inspiration for all the new Chantilly Lace dies by Becca Feeken.  And tomorrow is the last day... so hurry!!

Introducing the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection Blog Hop

Welcome sweet friends, today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders called Chantilly Paper Lace - you can take a quick peek of the entire collection-> HERE.

Have you ever rummaged around in your grandmothers attic, through memories of the past to find sweet letters and cards romantically tucked away for safe keeping while preserving sweet acquaintances and conversations of the past?  Letters adorned with the finest decorations, now tattered and ripened with age, impress what an honor it was to receive these treasures.  Becca reached into the past to restore some of these treasures, preserving the fine detail, the elegance and the pure femininity into modern day romantic die cuts that are at home on any card.  The collection is reminiscent of petticoats, fine lace and adornments and are designed so that each die works with the other.  In fact, the card front dies are designed so that they can be used alone or two can be layered over each other.  Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  

We are listing all of the creative team so that you don't miss a beat but don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog and hint-hint you'll want to make sure you leave a comment on the Spellbinders Blog too.  The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

When i saw this collection of dies i was so excited to create lots of vintage styled cards that i so love to do.  For my card i am sharing i used simple but rich colors of fresh crisp linen and kraft and layered the dies to create a sweet and thoughtful Thank you card for a dear friend.  This die has so much incredible detail i had to create a shadow so that you wouldn't miss but a one. 

My favorite part of this die was the ease of how the paper popped out of it with all that amazing detail in it.  This has so many fun parts in the set I can see lots of other layered cards with the rest of the collection in the weeks to come.  It's really gorgeous!!

The hemstitch oval is also one of my favorite dies and will surely be in with my go to's for everyday projects.  For this card i only used the largest die and stamped my image and then layered it over a pretty vintage floral paper from Prima.  This card reminds me so much of a country cottage or farmhouse and i really love how this one came out.

With the Hemstitch Oval die you get 3 sizes of ovals in the set and with the hemstitch design you can use or not use it so that is a real plus. Creating beautiful projects will be so easy.  And this would be a wonderful die to pick up to layer on some of the other new dies in the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection.

But wait--- i have one more to share :)

And because it was so easy to use i had time to create another style of card using the same die but using it as a frame to add my Christmas trees and holly that i fussy cut from the paper.  I found these pretty papers in my stash while cleaning and thought how fun to make a pretty holiday card using the set.  I used 2 frames and the hemstitch design and cut this pretty glitter paper from Ruby Rock-it.  It cuts like a dream and i can see lots more projects in my future for this one too.

I just love that pretty hemstitch design in the dies and it gives it such a beautiful detail to my project but not too overwhelming to add other things into the mix.  

And now its time to share about the prizes and where you can get the new dies!

Celebrate your day

It's a gorgeous Monday and i hope you all had a great weekend and maybe got in a little fall crafting for yourselves.  Today i have a fun share using a super cute APG die from Spellbinders.  This one is a mate to the girls shoe i used last week called "Gents shoe" and i thought i would go a little bit more everyday instead of wedding and do a Birthday card and a smart looking gift box with the multi loop bow die to match.  Most guys wear lots of plaid so i used that for my starting inspiration and then added some fun colors to match from the Simple Stories paper set that i had in my stash for all the other pieces.  

The shoes were super easy to make and after rummaging around a little bit,  i found some blue floss in my stash to tie them with.  To make my way too cute shoes pop more i rested them on a piece of orange paper that i cut from the Hemstitch Rectangles die set and then also cut an ivory piece to stamp on my "Celebrate" sentiment on.  This is from a super cute Happy Birthday set from Quietfire Design and has lots of other adorable Birthday sentiments you can use for everyday cards and such.

And if you haven't picked up the Multi Loop Bow die you really need to grab one before they are gone.  I love this die because i can make cute bows out of anything i have to match my projects and they are super easy to do.  I made 4 loops of each of the 3 sizes for my bow and then cut a few of the ribbon ties for the base.  It went to together in all of about 10 mins so that is really nice!! 

Thank you so much for stopping over today and be sure and leave a comment so i can stop over and visit you too :)  

Supply List:

Paper: Simple Stories Rad 6x6 paper pad
Inks: Archival Ink in Sepia, Versa Magic Chalk ink in Gingerbread
Blue Scrappers Floss for the shoestrings

Thank you for stopping over and have a really wonderful week!!

Bridesmaids Gift ensemble

Hi and welcome to my blog today.... this week i had the pleasure of designing with a  fun wedding die called the "Ladies shoe".  And since i just got a brand new paper pad from Prima, both of them inspired me to create this pretty wedding bag for a bride or bridesmaid.  The shoes done in the roses reminds me of those pretty robes that all the brides are giving as gifts so i thought this would be a fun gift bag and card to make for it.  I loved that the papers were smaller prints since it was a 6x6 pad and i was really happy how all of it went together.

Here is a closeup of the tiny card to put inside my bag.  My favorite part of this die is the tiny little bows that you can make for the top of each of the shoes... they are so adorable.

And of course the colors are so pretty.  It's the prettiest robin's egg blue with subtle grey and tan and it really makes this ensemble soft and feminine and a gorgeous gift to make for someone.

I am so glad you stopped over this week to see what is new with the APG team.  Be sure and stop by all the other girls blogs this week on Tuesday to and see what new ideas they have to share.

Supply List:

APG/Spellbinders Dies:

white and aqua cardstock

white gift bag, adhesive pearls, lace, paper trimmer, adhesive and scissors

A wedding gift for you

Today i have a fun post to share that i just did using some of my favorite dies from Becca Feeken and Spellbinders.  This month our team is sharing lots of ideas using border and corners so i thought i would try and use the pieces as ornamental designs using the same color paper to make a box and a card to give for a wedding gift.  This is alot like my recipe box i did but i tried to use as much white as i could and then just add bit of pink for the flower and ribbons to give it just a hint of color.

The card was really fun and easy to make.  I started with the center die and put the corners around it to get my size for the card middle.  Then i cut out the center die like you see above to layer with.  The beautiful corners i cut out of white paper to match and glued them on all four sides around the center die cut.  I think it really shows them off and adding 3D foam dots between the layers makes the center die really stand out with the white.  That cute little "For You tag" is from the Tiny Tags and sentiment set and i stamped it with vintage sepia Versafine ink to make it crisp and nice.

And my wedding gift card box was really easy and fun to make.  I used both sets of the corners on the top and the sides because of the sizes on the top and sides of the box are different.  Both are a perfect match and i added the same circle die from Marcheline Plume as the card and then leaves and that tiny heart swirl on the front from the corners.  Oh how i love to mix and match all my beautiful dies from Becca!! It's amazing how all of them work so wonderfully together.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop over today...

Lacy in Pink

Sometimes you find a very special die that you really love because everything seems to work great in it.  This new die called "Isabella Frame" from Becca Feeken is one of those gorgeous dies you can use so many ways and this lovely sentiment from Quietfire Design works great inside of it don't you think.  The stamp is called "Where flowers bloom" and I adore this stamp because it so says alot about me personally and i am forever doing something and never standing still so I just had to use it.  

I was rummaging around and cleaning up my scrap room and came across these gorgeous vintage papers that i had put away.  The paper colors layered really well over each other and the stamp i did in a rich cocoa to give it a nice vintage feel.  

To finish my card i just added a few pretty flowers on the side and tied a cute bow with seam binding ribbon.  And wha la!!  It's all done and ready to mail.  

And that's all for today but i have lots of things to share so be sure and check back soon.

Big Hugs...Teresa
