Faith is simple confidence card


It's Monday and time to share another sweet card that i created with Becca Feeken's newest die set called "Chantilly Paper Lace".  One of my favorite new sets of dies was created to interchange inside of the Bella Rose lattice layering dies. It will give you lots more options to create different designs and since it had adorable hearts in it i thought it would be perfect to use.

I kept the color scheme simple with just a soft pink cardstock over white and used one of my favorite stamps for the top layer.  This way i can set it out to remind when times are tough in my life.

Be sure and check all the other Amazing Paper Grace Design team members blogs this week for more incredible ideas to use the new dies.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:

Stamp: Penny Black-Hope Shines

Just a little love note



Hi and welcome to my blog this wonderful Monday morning.  Today i have a pretty card to share starting off my obsession this month with Valentines cards.  I love all the pretty shades of pink in cardstock you can use and lots of hearts so this is a favorite holiday of mine.  And you don't have to use lots of hearts on the card, sometimes the sentiment will tell the story for you.

For my card today i had fun layering 3 dies in coordinating pinks all from Becca Feeken's new dies and since there wasn't any space on the final die on top to add the sentiment i just stamped it on vellum in black ink and made a band to fit around and over the center.  This way you can still see all the gorgeous details from the dies.  And don't forget to add 3D Foam squares between some of the layers to show off those pretty details in the dies too!!


And to finish my card and to add just a touch more detail i matted it on a rectangle from Hemstitch Ovals and added a few tiny white pearls just enough to make it more feminine.  I really love this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...   Teresa

Wishing you Love and Laughter


Happy New and how wonderful it is to be starting a brand new year full of new exciting adventures.  This year i am wishing for good health and happiness in my life and lots of fun filled days with my family and friends.  And.... of course create lots of beautiful things to share with all the fun crafty things i get this year!

Today i am sharing a classic card made with one of my favorite new lacy corner dies from Becca Feeken called "Eliza Lace Corners" Etched die.  You get 2 of the dies in each set so you can emboss or cut the die out to create lots of beautiful projects.  I used just a subtle white paper on taupe for my card and to make the dies stand out just a little bit more i rubbed a white chalk ink pad over those beautiful etched lacy corners to make them pop.  It's subtle but makes all the white look really clean and gorgeous.

The center die is one of my favorite go to dies from Spellbinders called Standard Circles large.  It fit perfectly in the center of my square card and the Penny Black stamp popped nicely in brown ink.

And that's my share for today and don't forget to stop over to Becca's blog today too and all the rest of our team to see what new things they have for you for this brand new year!

Happy, Happy New Year to you all :)

You are wonderful card


Good morning and I am so happy you could stop over again for a little Die Cutting inspiration.  Today i have a sweet card to share that i did with Becca Feeken's "bookmark/tag etched die".  I wanted to make something different with it so i used it as a window of sorts on my card and layered the sentiment ovals and flowers on it to really pop it out.  I kept the papers really clean and crisp so that everything would really go together well.  And...Sometimes it's fun to try new things with your dies to get other effects and change things up a bit with them... It keeps my crafty life fun I think :)


And the flower you see is also one of Becca's dies called "Cinch and Go Flowers Two".  You can make this alot of ways depending on what paper weight that you use and like Joanna on our team, you can use handmade papers and have a whole other effect.  It's really fun.  For mine i just cut 1 of each petal and just slightly skrunched them and then added a cute little flower i had in my stash for the center.  It finished it off just perfectly.


And for the sentiment i used 2 of the labels in the "Curled Grace Oval Die set".  It makes this hobby alot more practical if you mix and match your dies and that way the possibilities can be endless!

Thanks so much for stopping over today and i wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas!!

A Very Merry Christmas


Today i have a really special post to share that i did for a very special friend and neighbor that is moving away this month.  I wanted to make something very bright and cheerful and let her know that i will always remember her during the holidays and all the days hereafter and i think i did it.

For my card I used lots of Becca's new dies to layer a pretty vintage Christmas card.  My inspiration came from that beautiful piece of red metallic paper i found in my stash and as i layered i added a touch of glitter and a bit of glistening ivory paper too.  As always it was really fun to make!!


For this this card i really wanted to bring out all the textures so i added a layer of embossing on the paper too that just slightly peeks out on the edges.  It's always so neat to see how incredible all the dies go together.  Everything on this card is a die so it was nice to be able to make it all match... even the poinsettia's.

And just in case you need a supply list...

A little bit of whimsy


I know that usually i do a post with very victorian styled projects but i do have a totally different side from working at the scrapbook store that i did.  I got to use so many different papers to create displays and one of my favorite lines was Doodlebug.  So having a bunch of those little cuties in front of me i decided to get out my Venise Lace Mini Card/ Booklet Gift Box die and put together a cute gift card box for a friend.  I created this one in white and then cut pieces of patterned paper to decorate the top and sides.  Under the cute little red bird i added a white die cut from the Francesca Label die to make it all pop.  And the cute little buttons and twine on the front just add a fun touch of whimsey to it all.


My favorite part about this die is that i always need a cute little box for something so i can make this in any color or pattern and fill it with fun things to give for gifts.  And i don't have to go out to the store to find one.... love that part so much.


And for my second project we used to make lots of these little paper wrappers for cellophane bags of treats.  They are from a 12x12 piece of paper and you can cut them 4 inches wide or like mine is 4 1/4 so that i can get more of the colors of the prints to stand out.  I just used the Gossamer Knot Ensemble that goes with the box and made a pretty white trellis backround for my Santa and his tree.


And to finish it i punched two holes in the top and tied some Doodlebug twine and added a sticker heart.  And inside is a goodie bag filled with yummy chocolates to give to my friend.  These are great for those little gifts that you want to give to remember those special in your heart!  

Thank you so much for stopping over and hope that you Christmas Holidays are going good!
