AMAZING PAPER GRACE MARCH DIE OF THE MONTH BLOG HOP


Do you ever suffer from blank page syndrome?  Or you clear your schedule and your table and sit down to make a card, and bam - your mind goes blank.  That's why we're here!  We love bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month and today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop for March.  

Since we all see things differently, it's our aim to show you how each of us approached designing with this die and the lovely pieces that are a part of it.  Our hope is that you snag a picture or two for your inspiration file and they come in handy next time you sit down to create.  Our list of links at the bottom of the post lead to all the inspiration.

The six pieces that make up Spun Blessings Oval combine to make a card front die, perfect for a background or you can creatively use all of the inlays for either accents or borders.  You may have noticed, it's a big die but the better to make alternative designs like the little baskets that help to create an ensemble.

My 1st Card Today:


For this card, I simply adhered the die cut on the front of my card base. I then added the sentiment panel in the center with some foam dots. I love the little X and O's!

  
For my 2nd Card:


On this card, I used the Die Cut as the actual card front. Love the intricate cuts on this die set! So beautiful! I added another die cut in gold poster board paper slightly off center behind the pink die for some pretty gold shadowing. (Click on pic for a closer look)


For my Final Project:


I made some simple Easter Treat Bags. I simply cut off each side of the full die cut to make the ovals or "Eggs". I then adhered them together onto a small plastic bag to form my egg. I then added some pearls, ribbons, flowers and bunny image to finish them off. Quick and Easy! These would be perfect to hang out in school for some Easter Treats. :)

Hi, Melissa,
Your cards demonstrate so beautifully how the die does all the "heavy lifting" so that one need not add much to them. Being a card-maker does put pressure on me sometimes to 'perform' but this die could be a real time-saver!
You always add little extra touches and those adorable treat bags are perfect.
Blessings, Sandy
