Introducing Dimensional Doilies Blog Hop/ Amazing Paper Grace


Things are not always what they appear!  When you look at this die set, you may be hard-pressed to see what it becomes but that's why we're here - bring on the inspiration!  We're so tickled to be introducing a new and unique take on doilies.  Please welcome the Dimensional Doilies Collection.  Hop through with all of our Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team to get a small taste of inspiration as well as see how each of us has used these new motifs!

Inspiration for Dimensional Doilies

Some of the first dies ever to hit the market were doilies.  They gave you a symmetrical base to put your card elements on and they simply frame a creation and draw your eye inward.  By now you probably have many flavors of doilies in your stash.  These doilies are different.   

With one pass of the die, three identical motifs are created.  These motifs have perforations and slits on each edge.  When the perforations are folded and the slits are intersected, it creates a round doily of 6 to nine pieces that has a secondary filigree layer.  The texture, dimension and pure femininity they add to a card front is gorgeous.

My Project For Today:

I'm so excited to introduce S4-1055 Starburst Petal Doily 


I really do love this particular die because I have found there is so much that you can do with it depending on how many pieces that you use.  I made a card with a very fancy flower in the center, decorated a sweet jar with them at the top and also made a butterfly with them.  How fun is that?  And i am sure that you will think of so many more things to create with it ....

For my card above i used each of the die pieces to connect on the upper flower but underneath i wanted to continue the lacy look of the flower so i also cut it in pink paper and trimmed off the sides so that i could lay them out slightly larger and create a second layer of flower.

And then i needed something to finish the center so i cut and embossed the gold paper i used with one of Becca's flower dies and finished that with a pretty rhinestone.   I hope you like it as much as i do.....

Here are the dies in the set.  You can cut three at one time and there is also one that removes so that you can have a solid version to layer under the doily top.


Here is the closeup of my card so that you can see all the gorgeous details in it.


And this is my Butterfly that i created.  I used 4 of the doily pieces and then added that cute APG tag in the center for the body.  The box i made as a slider so that i can open it and fill with some treats or a gift card or maybe even both.  My mom loved Butterflies so this one is in memory of her.  


And then i got to thinking how fun to add these to the top of a pretty glass jar to decorate it.  Mother's Day is coming and you could make up some of your moms favorite treats and put them inside this pretty jar with the card to surprise her.  It kind of looks like fairy wings I think.  So cute!


And this is the top.  Be sure and always pull out your other APG dies to add in to the mix when you create with all the new ones that come out.  They are designed to compliment one another so you can get so much life out of them when you do it.  This circle die is from the Candlewick Collection and i think it works really nice together. 

I am so happy that you stopped by and be sure and hop to all the other gals to see what they are sharing with you today.
