Hi there, welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team Blog Hop. Today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken called Venise Lace. I'll list 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 left on each of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team blogs - details at the bottom of my post. We thought it would be awesome to introduce the dies along with samples to show what you can make. So, without further ado let me talk about the two dies I get to introduce:
First up isSpellbinders S6-125 Venise Lace - Victoriana Crest by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace in the Venise Lace Collection.
For my project I really wanted to show this die off so i created a shaped card. To make it i had to create a base so i did that in navy and white for the inside back and i attached them at the top. Then i cut/embossed the front in silver and glued it to the front of the card and I also cut the oval floral piece and the outside ring and glued them on a white base. I stamped it in navy to make it match the ribbons i used and added a few pearls and rhinestones to really make it vintage looking.
I loved that this die set has so many pieces that you can mix and match to make other styles of cards. It is filled with amazing details from the outside grand victorian base piece to the tiny little tag that fits in the center and I am sure that you will love to create something with this one too.
The second up isSpellbinders S4-790 Venise Lace - Bella Clair Border by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace in the Venise Lace Collection.
For my project I wanted to try and create a border for one of the clear acetate boxes that i love to do for gift cards and mini card sets. It was super easy and all i did was die cut the die on a measured piece of paper on both the top and bottom and this is how it came out. There is a piece for both the front and the back and i overlapped them on the sides and glued them. Then I tied a pink ribbon around the center to bring out the colors in the paper i used to wrap the box and then added an extra bow in ivory and gold to compliment the whole thing. I also found this pretty adhesive bling piece in my stash so i used that to finish off my bow. For the inside i am going to make a card to give a gift card so be sure and check my blog for another post to see what i did.
I loved this die because i can think of a million things to decorate with this border. I make lots of boxes and bags and other little gifty things so this would be perfect to add with a few flowers and ribbon to make very special things for my friends.
And i also have another quick card to share that i did with just the centers of the Victoriana Crest die. Here in the states we will be celebrating our 4th of July so i made up a quick card to send out in red, white and blue. I kept it really simple and added just a bit of silver in the center.
These dies have just arrived and are indeed available. For a peek at the whole collection head over to Becca Feeken's Blog.
