Happy Mother's Day Card

Happy Thursday ... it's a going to be a nice weekend here in California and finally a little bit cooler so we are looking forward to a nice barbecue this weekend and face timing the family that lives out of state!  What a crazy world we live in these days but thankfully it's going to get better for summer :)

Today i have a very special card that i made for my daughter to send her for Mother's Day this year.  It's her first time as a mom and she is doing such an amazing job at it and i wanted to make something really special for her.  I die cut everything on this card all the way down to the handmade flowers so it's a labor of love for sure.  I used the new " Heart Melange Doily set" from the new "Dimensional Doilies" collection by Becca Feeken for my center doily on my card.   These dies are just amazing for what you can do with them and their versatility and adding them to other dies makes them all the more special.

I wanted to use one of my favorite dies from the christmas collection too so under the doily you can barely see the tiny snowflake hidden under it but it works great!  I chose a very pale palette of lavender and ivory and each layer compliments the next. The details are just amazing with all those die cuts don't you think?  It's what i love about Becca's dies and how incredible that each of them is.  The flower die is from the New Rose Cinch and Go set and then a added leaves and some smaller flowers that i made.  

Here is a better view of the die set and how pretty these little hearts are....

This picture shows the pretty rhinestones and all the other pretties that i added to make the flower cluster in the center.  The vellum piece slides out from under the doily with the message under it so she will be surprised when she reads it.  I so love making special things for family.

I hope you like my share for today and sadly it will be my last for a little bit.  I am taking a break from design team crafting for awhile to get working on my Ancestry family albums ( I have 8 of them to do) and my new granddaughters books so i will share some of those pages later on with all of you using Becca's dies.  
I was so very blessed to be on the team for so very, very long and work with the Spellbinders Company with so very, very many talented ladies and who knows maybe i will get to go back in the future if i get the opportunity again.  But for now i am just taking a break and catching up with life.....

So enjoy your weekend and have fun making some beautiful things...  thank you to all of you who took the time to leave me such sweet comments about my work while being on this team.  To you all i will be eternally grateful and thank you for making what i do feel so very special.

Hugs and Smiles to all of you around the world,

Doily Money Card Holder

Happy Tuesday on this amazing sunny and beautiful day of quarantine.... never thought i would be saying that but I honestly have a million things to do so i am good to stay home and my family is good with all the cooking that i am doing.  They are all happy!

Today i have a new card to share that started with this really pretty red printed paper and one of the newest dies released by Becca Feeken called "Filigree Drop in Circlet Doily".  This is such a pretty die to start as a base for any of Becca's dies actually.  It's the perfect one to layer with her middles of the others too.  But for me i cut the back in a red cardstock that matched and then cut each of the panels to layer over the top of it separately.  For my center i used one of the older dies and cut that out and then adhered it at an angle and then cut that adorable little bow in black to finish the center.

Here you can see the pieces of the die set.  The designs are so unique and gorgeous.

I always love to pop up the layers so that it's more dimensional.  You can't really add a saying to this so i stamped it inside and created a pocket for it to add a gift card too.  
And--- i love lots of  rhinestones so i really fancied this one up and added a big one in the center of the bow for something different.   This would be gorgeous in all white for a wedding card :)  

Thanks so much for stopping by.... I have one more post for the month this Thursday with these dies and i hope that you have a chance to stop over for a peek.  It's really pretty!

Have a wonderfully blessed day and hope you make something pretty!

Hugs..... Teresa

Just Saying Hello Card

Good Morning.... and happy Thursday.  It's seems like forever since we started staying home around the world but thank goodness we as crafters have lots to keep us busy in the weeks ahead :)   

Today i have a share for you with Becca's new "Dimensional Doily" dies that is just a simple doily that i made using 3 pieces glued together twice and layering it to create a pinwheel.  Lots of time all a card needs is something pretty like a flower or doily to set off the beautiful papers that you use and that's exactly what i did.  It was super quick and easy to do.

This  doily is a really fun doily die set and depending on how you create with it you can use lots of the pieces or just a few like I did with my mini card last week.  I love all the pretty swirls in this die and it always comes out gorgeous in whatever you make with it.  

I also made a matching box for my card because i am going to send a little something inside to my friend with the card.   That cute little stamp that says "Just Saying Hello" is also from Becca's new set and that little pop of orange ink really shows it off.  The flower  in the center of the bow i actually made with Becca's rose die cut set.  It's nice when you have the time to make up your own flowers in all the special colors that you need to create with.  

Thank you for taking the time to stop over today and i hope that you all
stay safe and have fun creating and enjoy the time with your families :)

Just for you Treat Box and Card

Good Morning and Happy Thursday to all of you.  I hope that your week has been a good and healthy one and hope that you have had a little time to get in some crafting.   If you didn't stop by our hop on Monday we had a APG Team hop to share the brand new line from Becca called Dimensional Doiles.
Each of us created some amazing things so be sure and stop if you have a chance.

Today i have another new project that i created using another new die set called "Pointed Harmony".    You can use these dies to make doilies of all kinds and like in my little card you can do other things too.  I used the inset piece to cut out the shape as a shadow in the center of the card and then i cut 2 more pieces and trimmed the sides so that i could lay those cute little pieces over the center one.  Then i added that adorable new mini bow from the new set called Petite Double Bow and wah la!!  So cute!

Here you can see how beautiful the dies look when you top a box and add that cute little bow on top of it.  I used 2 layers of the bow to create this little cutie and it was easy to make a 3x3 inch box.  I thought these would be really cute for a Wedding or Mother's Day gift that is coming up soon to put a special something inside.  And if you notice I have added in one of Becca's border dies for the top of the box lid.  This was simple because i just added it over the top edge so that it would blend.  

Here is the die set and how it looks when  you get it.  The solid piece you can use for layering. Or you can use that for your doily.

And here is a closeup of the little card that i made.  It only measures about 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches and these are some of my favorite cards to make.  They are perfect to add with those boxes and other little gifty things that you make for your family and friends.  And you can use the centers of most of Becca's dies to create them.  

I hope you get the chance to check out all of Becca's new dies HERE<<<<

Thank you for stopping over and be sure and stop by next week for more fun ideas ...

Hugs and Smiles,

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.

It's your Birthday Card

I have another quick share with all of you today for a special birthday card that i created with a fun die by Becca Feeken that includes stamps with it.  It is called the "All Occasion Sentiment Stamp and is part of the newest Flourished Fretwork set.  This beautiful sentiment set can be used by itself like i did with my card or added over other cards to create a vintage masterpiece for someone you love.  I used Mintay papers for my card because they had a beautiful scene on them already and it made this a super easy card to make.

As you can see the Calligraphy on the sentiments is beautiful and the size is perfect for cards.

Here is a closeup of the die set.  I cut 2 pieces of it and glued them together to make the die really stand out.  And then to make the paper pop i cut a tiny mat of black around the outside edge of the paper for the back round and a matching piece for the sentiment.  I think i might make up a bunch of these and add different sentiments to put away in my special box. 

Thank you so much and be sure and come back for our Hop this week to see a brand new set of dies that Becca designed .  You will love these .... they are over the top unique!!

Hugs and Smiles... Teresa
