Bundle of Joy card and Invitation

Hi and welcome to my blog on this beautiful Saturday.  This week for our Amazing Paper Grace team we get to make anything we want so i jumped at the chance to use these beautiful 3D Grand Arch dies for a baby project.  And i love, love, love pink so i put them both together and this is what i came up with.  I actually did the insides of the book with just ivory papers and then did the jacket of my 3D book with pink papers.  This gave it a little bit more depth and i added pretty flowers that i had in my stash to the bottom front for a sweeter baby feel.  Sometimes you just run out of time so it's good to use what you have or if you have to make alot of them in a short time.

And for the inside of the Bundle of Joy die set i chalked the wings just ever so slightly and added just a touch of pink at the top and the bottom of the words to make it stand out more.  And of course bling.  I just love all the beautiful details of this die set and who wouldn't want to get one of these beautiful cards in the mail or at their next shower?  They have me hooked for sure.. i love this die set.

And for this project because of course i had to do another to share with this set... i made a invitation for a shower.  For this i created a gated card with just a simple layer of pink on the top of each side.  Then i used the Ornamental Arch to create the center of the band and put the Layered Bundle of Joy die set in pink and ivory in the center.  And that cute little set of baby feet is also included in the die set so i just cut that out in the top by itself.  It is so cute!!  And did you know that you even get the extra rattle that i cut to put on other things too?  It's such a cute set and I love how all of this goes together.  It's amazing and that is why i am always so blown away with each die that Becca designs.  I love that all of them can be used together like this... Even the little band on my project had a cut from tiered rosettes edges.  Yep it's pretty amazing and i just can't say it enough about all of it.  

Thanks for stopping by today and i hope you all have a lovely weekend.  
If you make something fun be sure and post it here so i can stop over to see you too
or just to let me know that you stopped over for a peek!

Changing your destiny....

It's Saturday and time for another project idea using the new dies from Becca Feeken's 3D Vinettes collection that was just released.  This week we are sharing lots of ideas on making flowers for your cards and projects so i decided to make mine fun and cut them from polka dotted vellum to go with my sentiment.

I used neutral tones and white to create my card with lots and lots of layers.  I used the Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles to make the base and then layered on a double cut piece of the Tiara Rondelle to make it thicker and easier to adhere to the card.  The Quietfire stamp i did with Black Versafine ink and then embossed it with clear to make it pop more.  It's neat how just that small rectangle under the sentiment really makes it stand out more without really showing up too much.  

And for the flowers i thought since i used the polka dot for the sentiment i would cut my blossoms and layer them with pretty white stamens in the centers and then mix in some smaller flowers from the bridal set and the Isadora Trinkets set with just plain white card stock.  It's nice to have different styles of dies so that if you need something special for a specific project you can just make it up yourself.  That is what makes dies so fun to use!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure and see all the other girls on our team this week with all of their ideas too.  You are going to love them!

Happy Saturday everyone..... Teresa

Anything Goes with Amazing Paper Grace this week

This week it's anything goes with the designers for Amazing Paper Grace so i decided to take one of the new 3D Shapabilities Grand Cabinet Die set and make a kind of easel card.  To make it I just cut 2 pieces out for the front and back and kept the centers in and glued them just at the top.  Then i set it out and measured across of the two bottom tabs and cut 2 pieces of paper to fit across.  Be sure and pencil mark them first so that you can get the cut on the slant like i did.  And for the center i die cut just the middle and stamped one of my favorite stamps on it and colored it with chalks and colored pencils.  This is a real old one and it's always good to get those out again and give them some new life.  And to make the pinks pop more i die cut one of my favorite Spellbinders dies and layed it across under 

Here is a closer version of the sides.  I also added another pretty piece of pink to the inside just to finish it a little more and i made lots of gorgeous flowers with the Cinch and Go 3 die set for the top.  I just cut them out and spritzed them and then shaped them on a spongy mat.  It's fun and you get perfect colored flowers to match your projects that way.  

At the bottom i stamped Heartfelt Thanks with the Giving Occations stamp and die set and cut the ends to flag them.  It fit perfectly under the image and I think the person i am sending it too will really like it.  Sometimes it's fun to send a card that they can open up and put on a desk or table to enjoy for the next week or so.  And it has lots of pretty flowers for spring on it too.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and enjoy your Easter weekend!!

Just for you

What better way to start a Sat then by creating something gorgeous with dies from Becca Feeken.  I have a really pretty card to share that i created this week with her new "Tiered Rosettes Etched Die set".  I did alot of layering on this one so look close and see if you can see all the different dies i used.  It's so much fun to use them in different ways and i even used printed papers this time to make it so that the die cuts would look more marbled.  What do you think?  It really makes the details in the dies stand out.

So to begin with you will need the new Julie Nutting 6x6 paper pad from Prima and you are going to cut out a pink die cut from the "Emmeline Treillage" die.  Glue that on the pink and ivory printed paper and mat it with ivory like you see above.  Then you can make a pink 2" border out of the same paper using just the edge of the Tiered Rosettes die and glue that down the center.  And to make it even more fun i cut the XOXOXO border from the pink rose paper and put that down the center of the pink lacy border.  Then you can mat it with light pink card stock and then glue it on an ivory card.

And for the rosette i used that same pink rose paper and cut two of the folded rosette piece and created that pretty rosette under the bow.  They are super easy to make and you can layer them too.  But--- i wanted my card to be really lacy--- so i created a big fluffy bow in pink bias ribbon and added a gorgeous brad from Prima in the center.  

And to finish it off i cut/embossed a cute ivory tag stamped with For You from the "Graceful Tiny Tags set".  It's fun to layer all the beautiful lacy patterns and if you mix them in the just the right way it really works together nicely.  

And there is lots of other fun ideas you can do with this die so be sure and check the rest of the Amazing Paper Grace DT for other ideas this week.  Enjoy your weekend!!

GSLC Perpetual Calendar

How wonderful that you stopped over today to see what is new with our projects on the blog.  I found a really neat Perpectual Calendar in the store last week and thought i had just enough time to make one up for this new year to try and stay organized.  It's a super great set in that it contains the box and all the tags for the dates and months and weeks.  And all the chippies to put on them.  It's amazing and was a really fun set to create with.

And I just bought a brand new line of paper from Prima that was filled with antique roses in gorgeous shades of pink and rose so i thought it would be perfect to use.  Above you can see all the days of the week chippies and the tags that i used for each of them.  And the paper line comes with lots of other goodies and you could really have fun decorating each of them.  Be sure and stay flat though because you only have so much room in the file box for each of the tags.

I am going to search around for more fun things to add on my tags but this is a good start :)

 I used this water colored pink paper for the numbers.  I had a super cute die cut that the numbers fit on perfectly and did them in white so that the numbers would stand out more.

And here is a quick view of the box and the different compartments it has for the tags.  I painted the box a vintage white first and then i traced and cut pieces of the paper to fit on the outside and inside layers.  I adore cabbage roses so I am very happy with the way this came out.  I hope you like it too!

Have a wonderful weekend...   Teresa

A tisket, A tasket my favorite easter basket

This week is a really fun week for all the Amazing Paper Grace Design Team because we all get to design cute Easter Baskets to share with you.  Each of us used the new Grand Dome Dies and added our own twist to it and it's been so fun and we have lots of ideas for you.  My easter basket is super simple to make so that you can make up a heap of them for your family and friends.  And if you want to add extra flowers and ribbons than there is lots of space for it... just have fun!!

 To create my basket I used 2 shades of pink heavy weight card stock to cut the fronts and sides and then i measured all of it and created a really basic box for the bottom to glue the whole thing to.  It all took me about 20 minutes to do.  And now that you have the idea you can cut all the pieces at once and do a fun assembly line for everyone coming to your party this year.

With the Grand Dome die set you have a huge center cut out so to change it on mine i added a piece from the Filigree Veil die set and also the center cut in pink to fill it in a little bit more.  The two dies made a really pretty decorative front for my basket and helps to keep all the grass and goodies inside of it too.  And last but not least--- i had to add this adorable bow in light pink to finish it off.  Super simple and so easy to make.  

And just for an adhesive tip, double sided tape works the best to glue the fronts, sides and bottom together.  You don't have to wait for it to dry and you have them ready in minutes.

   Thank you so much for stopping by and be sure and check back for more fun ideas!!
