AMAZING PAPER GRACE JANUARY DIE OF THE MONTH BLOG HOP


Good morning!!  Like every month, we love bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month; today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop!!   This month we have the most elegant of elegant dies that are designed to allow you to cut the die then slip a card into position.  

The Lacework Finery Slip-In Card Die has a tiara-like motif that can be used with the corner pieces or without.  If you are looking for a subdued card, why not use the corner pieces only?  All of the pieces are inlaid, you can use them alone or together to get the look you want.   

Everyone on the Creative Team has joined in to give you their spin, in their style.  We hope you'll see something that resonates and inspires you. If you are new to our blogs, the Die of the Month is an exclusive die Becca has designed for Spellbinders - it is called the Lacework Finery Slip-In Card Die.  This particular set has 10 dies and they can be used to make a background, a slip-in card, or a frame with decorative corners, while the individual dies in the set can be used for many things.  Oh, and to make the set complete, there are flowers!

My Card Today:

Since the die looks like a tiara, it reminds me of a little girls birthday party. (My Birthday is also today, so that kind of helped too! LOL ;) So that was the inspiration for my card. This could be used for either a birthday card or birthday party invite. It would also be great for a wedding shower or even baby shower. Just depends on what you put on the inside.  


I layered the die cuts using some gold poster board and blush cardstock and just slightly offsetting the gold behind the blush cardstock. Love the flower die that is included too!


And since we are talking parties! I thought I would make a place card setting using the die. It is super easy and it gives sch a pretty presentation.


I just die cut the tiara motif inside of the large rectangle die that is also included in the set. I then folded one side back and the other half forward. And you instantly get this shape! Easy Peasy!


Here you can see where I place a single pearl in the back in order to keep the paper from sliding back. And you can also fold these flat as well. this would also be great as a gift card holder as well.



As always, each member of the Creative Team spins their interpretation of a die.  To see their makes pop down the list of Creative Team Member to see more!

♥ Foiled Happy Birthday ♥


Happy New Year friends! I hope this year is starting out good for you all. Today I wanted to share a birthday card with you that I created using some Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace products.


The base of my card was made with the A2 Swirl Background Etched Dies. I adhered it over my patterned paper using some foam dots for dimension. I then added some Curvy Labels to the center of the card. And finally, the Sentiment was made with the Elegant Occasion Sentiments Hot Foil Plates and the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System. I used the Black Hot Foil. In person, it has a nice shine to it.


All of Becca's Dies are currently ON SALE! You can check them all out HERE!


Hope you have an AMAZING Day!!

hugs...

♥ Pearls, Foil and Shimmer, Oh my! ♥


Hi there! Stopping in today with a super elegant yet easy to make Foil card. I used a fabulous Hot Foil Plate and Die Set by Amazing Paper Grace along with the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System.


I simply foiled the base of my card using the Elegant Square Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and the Matte Gold Foil. I then fussy cut the medium size swirl image and adhered that to the center. I then added the smaller image to the center of the last one using some foam dots for dimension. I then die cut a Hemstitch Square (Love this Die Set!) and adhered that using foam dots. I then added little pearls around it. Then I finished it up with a bow and a few more pearls. Simple, easy but yet very elegant. Can be used for a number of different occasions.


You can find all of Becca's fabulous Hot Foil plates HERE and all of her amazing Dies HERE!


I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
