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.

Thank you for sharing several examples showcasing die sets from this Romancing the Swirl Collection. Your design using the Swirl Background Etched Die definitely gets my attention. I am loving all the swirls this die produces. Reminds me of the iron work pieces on the houses and lawns of the historic homes on St Charles Avenue in New Orleans, Lousianna, USA.
