Amazing Paper Grace January Die of the Month Blog Hop

 
Who doesn't smile when they get flowers.  Today we're giving you a way to present a bouquet to whomever your heart desires.  The January Die of the Month is a Pop Up 3D Vignette Bouquet.  It's one of those show stopper pieces that folds down flat to fit into an envelope but it's right at home living on a desk.
 
Even if 3D is not your thing, these beauties can also be used on flat cards and just in time for Valentine's Day.  A bouquet of flowers or a bouquet of hearts - what's your sweetheart getting this year?   Your panel can be decorative, textured or simply a sentiment.  
 
Today I used my dies with some new Valentine papers to create this fun whimsical card to give away.  The patterned papers worked really well with it and the bouquet came out so pretty with the flowers and the roses mixed together.  There are so many ways you can use this die and you will see today just how fun it is.
 
 
My Project Today:


Here is a closer look of my card.  I thought it would be fun to do a card where the beautiful bouquet is centered on the card but with a bit of a twist.  So i folded the card but then cut out about 2 1/2 inches out of the center and added printed papers to cover both the top and bottom pieces.  To keep the bouquet solid i cut a piece of clear acetate to go between the two front pieces on the back side and then glued on my white basket piece on the front in the center.   

The flowers i created by cutting 1 med. green, 1 pink and 1 smaller pink flower that you get in the set and after gently folding them with tweezers and gluing them together-- i added the matching smaller roses to the centers of each.  You also get another die in this set that has 3 pink hearts so i cut the larger size and filled in the spaces between the flowers with them.  It looks really cute!  And of course the sentiment sticker comes in the paper collection set and i added that with 3 D foam dots so that it would stand out a bit under the flowers.

A Special Wish Card


Happy New year everyone and I am hoping that all of you are ready for a brand new amazing year with lots of inspiration using Becca's 2020 dies and maybe a few other fun things i can share with you.

Today i made a card using a few of the dies from our Candlewick Collection and did a bunch of layers with them.  The top new gorgeous die is called Candlewick Canopy and has 2 pieces in the set.  I cut and embossed them in a subtle gold paper and added the smaller pieces in the set on the sides to make it more square and cover the band i used under it. 

As you can see i also used the Candlewick Square die, Candlewick circle die and also mixed in one of my favorites the Hemstitch Circle die set.  I love all the new basics that Becca designed and love that they are so good to use with all the dies.  And of course they are great for stamping which i might start back in with this year seeing all the gorgeous stamps out there.


And here is a glimpse of the die set and another cute idea for you from the packaging.  Guess its going to be another year of so many neat things to make and so little time.  

And we have a new guest designer this month and one of my favorites from Graphic 45.  You all know her as the amazing Gloria Stengel.... all this month she will be sharing her talents using Becca's dies so be sure and pop over to her BLOG when you get a chance to see her ideas.  You will love them.  


Thank you so much for stopping over and be sure and check back on the 12th for a Blog Hop with a Brand New Collection from Becca for making mini books.  You are going to love these dies !!

Hugs and Smiles,
Teresa

Together is my favorite place to be


It's almost time to celebrate my favorite holiday with our family and so i am just sharing a quick card that i created using 2 more of the Candlewick Classics dies.  I used the Rectangle and the Oval for this card and die cut them out of some gorgeous papers from Frank Garcia and Prima.  This is a fun country set with some really pretty colors and roses of course.  The dies worked perfectly to frame the sentiment that i chose for the set.



One of my favorite things about Becca's dies is that they look so pretty with printed papers too.  The tiny details that she has in each of the dies that she designs always pop up center stage and for this die you can add pearls or something on those tiny little Candlewick dots or just leave them as they are.  For me i just added a pretty tiny silk ribbon and button and a few more pieces of the ephemera that come with the paper set.  This was a super easy card to put together and i am going to add this one to my box of saved cards for 2020.

So what is your favorite style card... i would love to hear from all of you too.

Next week i am sharing some of my favorite cards from this year so be sure and stop over for a big huge post of inspiration..... Merry Christmas to all of you!!

Just to say I am thinking of You


Only 4 more days until Christmas Eve... are you almost ready for the big day?  I am doing really good this year and got alot done early so that i would have time to spend with my family.  And i also had the time to make up another card to put away for next year.  This one i just adore.  I used 3 of the new Candlewick dies by Becca Feeken for this one and layered them with a mix of solid and printed papers that went together really nicely.  

You have seen separate cards from all of these dies but how fun to layer all them don't you think?  I used the Candlewick Square on the base over the printed paper and then used the Candlewick Doily over that on pink with white card stock.  And over that i added the smaller Candlewick Circle to add my stamped image.  There is so much detail to all of these dies it didn't need much more to finish it then to add a pretty stamped image and a bow with a pretty pearl on it.  It's one of my favorites!


I just can't say enough about how beautiful and versatile these dies are.  It's really amazing how each of them gives your cards so much beauty with such little effort.  Just cut, emboss and layer them. 

Merry Christmas and Enjoy your Holidays!!

So Very Thoughtful and Very Thankful Card


Hi and thank you so much for stopping over today during this busy holiday season.  I still have a few things left to shop for but I am still creating some cards to keep in my special box to send out for the new year and today i have a card to share that i created using some of my 6x6 scraps and some ribbon and lace i had in my stash.  

The new die i picked for the front of my card is from Becca Feeken's newest release of Candlewick dies.  I used the circle today and just kept it really simple with layers of pretty printed papers and a thoughtful sentiment from a Penny Black set that i had.  


The card measures about 5 1/2x 5 1/2 so it will mail easily in a 6x6 envelope.  This one is perfect to send anytime of the year and i usually make up alot of these so i have some to send in a pinch.  Don't you just love that pretty pink rose paper?  Me too :)

So--- that's it for today.... i hope you are getting all your holiday shopping done and all your crafty projects too.  Have a very wonderful day and hope to see you back soon!

December Die of the Month Blog Hop


Every now and again you need easy, right?  We've become a huge fans of slip-in cards.  They are cards that are cut partially inlaid so that you can simply slip a decorative panel into place and you're done.  This months Die of the Month is called Rose & Filigree Duo Slip in Card.

Your panel can be decorative, textured or simply a sentiment.  The partial inlay can be positioned just where you want it on your card from one side to another or midway.  It can even be used to make a gatefold card or an actual belly band.


You are all going to love using this die to make cards and fun things to send and give to your friends.  The dies are so delicate and you can use them so many ways and i so love that part of this set.  I used both of the decorative pieces on my card... one for the base and the other as a belly band to go over the center of it.  So easy and yet so pretty!

Here are the pieces of the die set above.  You get the slip in base and 2 decorative pieces that both have the backround pieces for them to use as a shadow or as belly bands.  The ends of them don't cut completely so they are fun to just cut out and wrap around something like what i did for my next project.

My Second Project for Today is:


For my second project i used the dies to cover a pre-made box that i had in my stash.  I thought this would be a perfect gift for Valentines or even a Mother's Day brunch to give a gift in for all your favorite moms and grandmothers. I just used both of the decorative pieces... one for around the base and the other to add more detail to the top of my box.... Again-- this was really easy to do too.
