♥ Introducing the Venise Lace Collection Blog Hop ♥

♥♥♥ This will stay up top until end of hop! Please scroll down for new posts! ♥♥♥
Hi there, welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team Blog Hop. Today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken called Venise Lace.  I'll list all of the creative team so that you don't miss a beat but don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments left on each of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team blogs - details at the bottom of my post.   We thought it would be awesome to introduce the dies along with samples to show what you can make.  So, without further ado let me talk about the two dies I get to introduce:

First up is Spellbinders S5-311 Emmeline Treillage by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace from the Venise Lace Collection.


I love this gorgeous die set! I couldn't make just one card with these dies. So I made 3. I could use it on every single card I make! Love that lacy design along with the floral inset. So pretty! This one was made with white cardstock.


This one with a greenish blue patterned paper.


And this one with a pink patterned paper. All the patterned papers are by DCWV. 




The second up is Spellbinders S4-789 Francesca Label by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace from the Venise Lace Collection.


Love the shape of these dies! They are perfect for layering on any type of card. They will look great whether they are vertical or horizontal!




Availability:
These dies are now in stock over at the Spellbinders website!

Prizes:
In the meantime, be sure you leave a comment on this post for a chance to win an Amazing Paper Grace Die from the Vintage Elegance Collection.
There are five dies that are being given away. One name will be randomly picked from comments left on each of our five blogs on the APG Creative Team May Blog Hop post between June 13 and June 16, 2017 at midnight US CST and our international friends can participate!  The randomly selected names will be announced on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog on June 17th.

Up for grabs is an Amazing Paper Grace die of your choice from the Vintage Elegance Collection; there will be a total of five dies and a winner can win once among all five blogs.   If your name is selected, simply claim it within 2 weeks of announcement by sending your address through the form under the Contact Tab on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog.  The dies will be mailed out by Becca, once she has received your winning info and choice.

Hello Melissa,
Thanks for the great ideas on using the Emmeline Treillage die. I cannot choose which of the three examples you showed I like the best. I love the lace you added and the pattern paper you added set off the lace effects of the die dramatically! I also liked what you did to show off the Francesca Label die. Thanks for quite a lot of inspiration! I can't wait to get these dies and put your ideas to use!

Hi, Melissa,
These dies make such a strong statement on their own, giving them center stage expertly demonstrates the versatility of these dies for classic or fancy card designing. I can just see this Treillage pattern with some Cinch & Go flowers. Don't we just love the way the dies of Becca's collections can be combined?
Your style gives a great dimension to the design team!
Thank you, Sandy

Great cards. I love that you showed what it looked like using patterened paper. I'm always so afraid to use my paper trying that out only to find it doesn't look the way I imagined. You showed me that it can look good with the right paper.

Well, I can see why you decided to make three (lovely!) cards with the Emmeline Treillage...what a gorgeous die! Great idea using different colors/patterned papers on each card. So sweet.

The card using the Francesca Label is a timeless beauty. Way to show them off!

Geez...I have to pick one die that is my favorite? Loving the Emmeline Treillage, the Hemstitch Rectangles, the Gossamer Knot Ensemble and the and the Mini-card/Booklet Gift box. LOL. Perhaps I should have just said all of them. :)

Thanks for sharing!
