INTRODUCING AMAZING PAPER GRACE - A CHARMING CHRISTMAS | BLOG HOP

♥ Will remain on top until 8/19/18. Scroll down for new posts using A Charming Christmas! ♥


Tis the season to be jolly!  Even though it is only August, Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye.  I'm sure you are already listing out all the cards and gifts you're gonna make, right?  This year Becca of Amazing Paper Grace has designed a Christmas Collection - A Charming Christmas - for Spellbinders and we have a hop today to show you all the goodies and things we've made.  You can see the entire collection -----> HERE.

About A Charming Christmas Collection
Sweet little charms are so fun to play with, they can be dangled off of gifts, dangled off of cards and used in 3D Projects - they are just like the icing on the cake.  You will see that the "holiday" part of most of the sets in this collection have a Charm to personalize them - they are sized the same so you can mix and match them through your projects!  Here's the big deal: Outside of the charms and embellishments you add to make these dies Christmas, separately they can be used all year-round!! Yep, we're all budget shoppers too and want to get the most use out of a die!

Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  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 S4-948 - Charming Christmas Boughs Etched Dies

                     
This is such a beautiful die that can be used in so many ways. It can be shadow layered, like I did with the gold, or you can turn one die cut one way and another in the opposite direction and then layer or use as is. And the sweet little ornament charm and snowflake dies add even more charm to this beautiful die! Such an elegant set for Christmas cards!




 
Next up is S4-962 - Charming Round Tag Etched Dies.

                   
These fun tags/charms are prefect for cards, gifts, gift bags, etc. I love that not only do you get the ornament which can be changed out to give several different looks but you also get the sweet reindeer and mitten too! I also used the new Charming Tag Sentiments Stamps and the Seasons Greetings sentiment from the Sentimental Christmas Stamp and Die Set.





Availability:
These dies are available right now on the Spellbinders website -----> HERE

♥ Annabelle's Trousseau ♥


Happy Thursday to you. Stopping in today with a card I made with the Annabelle's Trousseau Layering Frame Medium Etched Dies by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. This set was released last year but has been one of my favorites! So I wanted to revisit it. It reminds me of an old Victorian house.

 
I simply layered the die cuts using some foam dots for added dimension. I finished it with a stamped sentiment from the Smitten Clear Stamp Set by Penny Black Stamps, pearls and some ribbon.


You can find all of Becca's beautiful Dies HERE.


Have a fabulous day!

♥ Heartfelt Thanks ♥


hello there. Stopping in today with a card I made using some beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Dies by Spellbinders.  For the base of my card, I am using the Grand Arch 3D Card Etched Dies. I then layered a Hemstitch Circle Die on the front.

 
The sentiment is stamped on the Label die that comes with the Grand Arch Set. The sentiment is by Penny Black Stamps. Paper is Prima. I then finished off the card with some flowers, pearls and ribbon.

 
The Grand Arch is Out of Stock at Spellbinders but is in stock HERE at Scrapbook.com And it's On Sale! :)


Have a wonderful day!

♥ Shadow Die Cutting ♥


Hello there. Stopping in today with a quick and simple yet elegant card using shadow die cutting. I first cut several of the Ringlet Accents from the Ringlet Round Etched Die Set by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders, in gold metallic paper. I then cut the same amount in ivory cardstock. I then glued the gold die cut behind the ivory ones, with just a peek of the gold showing through. 


The sweet little tag is from the Graceful Tiny Tag Stamp and Die Set. This sweet set comes with 5 different tags and 12 different sentiments.


You can find all of Becca's Dies HERE!



Have a great day!

♥ Rainbow Swirls ♥


Hello there. Hope you are enjoying your Summer so far. Today, I'm sharing a colorful card I made with some lovely dies by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. The base of my card is made with Sweetheart Swirl Etched Dies. After die cutting it with white cardstock, I simply inked it with some different Distress Inks.


I then did the same thing to the Trefoil Crest Diecut. I then adhered it to the base using some pop dots for added dimension. The sentiment is by Penny Black.

Have a great day!

♥ Swirl Booklet Insert ♥


Hi there. Today, I'm sharing a simple yet elegant card I made using the Swirl Booklet Insert Etched Dies by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. I cut out 2 of the panels and adhered them side by side. Reminds me of a stained glass window minus the colors. I like making cards like this because they can be given for a number of occasions. 


I die cut the Swirl Accent piece twice and adhered one going the opposite direction on top of the other one to form a medallion of sorts. The flowers were made using Cinch and Go Flowers III.


Hope you have a wonderful day!
