♥ Romancing the Swirl ♥


Have you seen the new Romancing the Swirl Collection by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders? If not, you're in for a real treat! So many gorgeous new dies! And if you missed my last post, we are having a Blog Hop introducing all of the new dies and you have a chance to win a Die set of your own! Just scroll down to my last post. 


For this card, I am using the Card Creator A2 Corner Cotillion Etched Dies which I adhered over a piece of patterned paper as my card base. I stacked 2 of the die cuts using pop dots to give it extra dimension. The bottom layer was cut using some light pink cardstock and for the top layer I used white cardstock.


I then stacked 3 layers of the Trefoil Crest Etched Dies to frame my stamped sentiment. Love that die cut! Becca really knocked it out of the park with these gorgeous dies! So  elegant, beautiful and timeless!


You can find the New Romancing the Swirl Collection HERE! Have fun shopping! :)


Have a sweet day!

INTRODUCING AMAZING PAPER GRACE - ROMANCING THE SWIRL COLLECTION


Welcome sweet friends. Today we are introducing Becca'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 S5-369 - Ringlet Round



This is such a gorgeous die set! It makes any card look so elegant and pretty. It reminds me of a vintage doily. I added the large die cut to my card base by just adhering the center part of it, which left the sides raised a little so it doesn't look so flat. I left my die cut open but you can add a background to the die as well with the included Frame Outline Die. This die cuts so easily too. Such a dream to work with!



I made another card using the Ringlet Round Die Set. This time I used the dies as my card base. I just simply added some hot glue to the very top of the back of the card front to adhere it to another die cut to form the card. The leaf die cuts are from the New Corner Cotillion Set.


This die is large but not too big. Just right, if you want my opinion! ;) It's approx. 5" x 5".


    Second up is S5-366 - Swirl Background





My second project uses the beautiful Swirl Background Etched Die. I adhered it over a piece of patterned paper to give my card an elegant yet whimsical look. Such a fun die to work with! Definitely one I will be using over and over again! Love all those swirls!


This is an A2 size die. So it's perfect to use for backgrounds or as a focal point like I used on my card.


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.

♥ Vintage Pierced Banners ♥


Happy Friday!! Today I'm sharing a beautiful and easy card I made with some fabulous Dies from Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. I used the Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies as the base of my card, I simply adhered them at the top with a tiny bit of glue.


I then added a Hemstitch Rectangle in gold to the center of the card front. To then finish it off, I added a wonderful Vintage Pierced Banner Die Cut to the center of the card. This "amazing" Die Set comes with 3 different shaped banners. (See pic below)


The banners could be used for so many different projects! Cards, scrapbook pages, invitations, Place card settings, etc. It's definitely a "Must-Have"!


Here are the Banners that come in the set. And they are even on Sale right now HERE!

♥ Filigree Veil ♥


Hello there. I hope you are enjoying Spring wherever you are! I have a sweet card I wanted to share with you today using some lovely Amazing Paper Grace Dies. I started by using the Hemstitch Rectangles as the base of my card. I then added the Filigree Veil Etched Dies. Love this die set. It can be used as a beautiful ornamental piece on your cards or you could flip it and use it as a gift card holder. So versatile! 


The sweet little tag is from the Graceful Tiny Tag Stamp and Die Set. I could use these 3 Die sets over and over again!

♥ Grace upon Grace ♥


Hi there! Stopping in today with a sweet and simple card that I made with the Grand Dome 3D Card Etched Dies  by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders, as my card base. I paired these lovely dies with the Tiara Rondelle Etched Dies.


That is the beauty of Becca's dies! They all go together so wonderfully! Not to mention, they are all gorgeous! ;) This card took me about 10 minutes to do. It was so fast and easy yet someone will think you spent hours on it!

♥ Anniversary Patina Card ♥


Hello. Stopping in today with a simple card I made using the Oh Happy Day Stamp and Die Set by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. This set can be used for so many different cards! Birthdays, Anniversary, New Baby, A Congrats card for any occasion, etc! It comes with the Banner and Plaque Dies, Oh, Happy and Day Dies as well as the stamp set with 11 different sentiments.  (See Below)


I also used the Annabelle's Trousseau Layering Frame Medium Etched Dies for the base of my card. I simply cut it in half and adhered it to front of the card. I gave it a "Patina" look by simply rubbing over the die cut with my embossing pad and then I added some Patina Oxide Embossing Powder by Seth Apter to it. LOVE this powder!! I need to order it in every color!!
