Introducing Amazing Paper Grace - Romancing the Swirl Collection



Welcome sweet friends, today we are introducing Becca Feeken's new dies.  Welcome to the Romancing the Swirl Collection - you can take a quick peek of the entire collection ---; HERE.

About Romancing the Swirl Collection

The Romancing the Swirl Collection by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders is chock full of calligraphic swirls and elegant, classic dreamy motifs that will be in style for years to come.  Meant to be used together across the collection, every die will be in character with another as they are combined.  Well rounded with squares, circles, ovals, and rectangles - each combination provides the ability to create a layering masterpiece adorned by the extra embellishments in the collection.

Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  We'll be sharing creations for weeks to come so you have a continuous source of inspiration!  We are listing all of the creative team below so that you don't miss a beat on the hop.  Don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog.  The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

My Projects Today:

First up is S5-368 Graceful Doily


My first die is a very beautiful and intricate die set as you can see.  There are 3 gorgeous detailed parts in it and for my card i wanted to bring out the best in all of them so i cut/embossed them in a subtle gold card stock and layered and popped them up on an acetate back drop with gold writing.  Since the acetate is tricky to adhere i cut small photo corners in the gold paper and glued them to the base there and under the center of the die that i cut.  I finished it with a sheer golden ribbon and then another looped bow made of gold on top.  It truly adds a bit of elegance to an already elegant card.  


Second up is S4-928 Hemstitch Circles  




My second project uses the new Hemstitch Circles that i absolutely adore.  I am so glad that this release has two of these gems in it.  The are so versatile and you can do so much with them.  I love that this die gives you that feeling of old linen and the beautiful handiwork our ancestors used to make. It's the perfect bit of detail for all kinds of projects. 

So to make my card.... I decided to use a off white printed paper and cut the large circle and then 2 smaller ones.  Then i used some Tim Holtz ink in aqua to give it just a faint tint on each of them and off set the set on the base piece.  The smaller kraft designs come from my first die that i shared in gold.  They were so pretty i had to sneak 3 of them into this card too just to add a little more detail to the card. Then i created a cluster of flowers with one of my favorite older dies called "Isadora Trinkets".  It has the cutest flower die and makes the prettiest flowers.  I added a few roses and some silk ribbons to fill with the leaves.  And all of this was matted on soft layers of kraft, aqua and tan to finish it.  


Availability:
These dies are available right now on the Spellbinders website.  Because there has just been a European launch, I'd encourage you to go ahead and grab those dies that speak to your heart --; HERE.

In the meantime, be sure you leave a comment on this post and every Creative Team Members post for a chance to win an Amazing Paper Grace Die from any previous collection (Romancing the Swirl not included).
