Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month | January 2022

 

Hello, crafty friends!
I have a sweet friendship card to share today featuring the Spellbinders & Amazing Paper Grace January 2022 Die of the Month Set. This month's "Pop Up Vignette Coffee Tea or Me" Set is perfect for making gorgeous layered cards, tags, gift boxes, gift baskets, gift card holders, mini albums, and more. This die set features 21 dies.

The Pop Up Vignette Coffee Tea or Me Die of the Month Set is a new addition to the Amazing Paper Grace 3D Vignettes Collection and features a cup that can be cut as a solid or filigree along with mirrored cup handles that look good from both sides. The cups also come with a rounded top that lets you see the back dimension and even a die that when cut from a different color makes it look like your cup is full of liquid.  I also includes a number of embellishments – There are regular flowers as well as heart flowers with stems.  Lastly, there are a host of words, and words can be made from the individual letter dropouts. As with other Vignettes, you can make a 3D item or use it flat on a card.

This month's die set is truly one-of-a-kind and I love that it was designed to accommodate both tea and coffee drinkers! I used the intricate layered teacup die to create the centrepiece for my card and embellished it with the flowers and the tea-bag die included in the set to create an ornate Friendship/Encouragement Card.

To create my card, I started by die-cutting Alabaster, Mirror Gold Cardstockand White Fun Foam using the tea-cup, cup handles, and the rounded top die in the Pop Up Vignette Coffee Tea or Me Set. Next, I adhered the detailed die cut layers together, offsetting the mirror gold to create a shadow using liquid adhesive. Next, I die-cut Alabaster, Mirror Gold, and Pink Sand Cardstock using the large triangular flower petal and leaf dies in the set. I used a medium Pink Copic Marker to flick some colour on the base of the petals to add some quick colour to the pieces, while the leaves were coloured using Mermaid Markers. Once that was done, I staggered the petals together using using liquid adhesive

Then, I die-cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the small rounded petal flower and leaf dies in the set. I used a medium Pink Copic Marker to add some quick colour to the petals and then used a stylus tool to cup the petals. I coloured the leaves using Mermaid Markers and adhered the pieces together using liquid adhesive, staggering the petals and added pearl adhesives as flower centers.  Next, I die-cut Pink Sand and Mirror Gold Cardstock using the sentiment strip dies in the set and adhered the pieces one on top of the other using liquid glue. Once that was done, I tucked in a white satin ribbon bow near the tea-cup handle for interest.

Next, I die-cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the tea bag die in the set and stamped a sentiment on the piece using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next, I blended Abandoned Coral Distress ink over the bottom of the piece using a blending brush for a hint of colour and then used some Gold Baker's Twine to attach it to the front of the tea-cup with some foam adhesive. Then, for my card background, I trimmed a piece of  Snowdrift Cardstock to size and and ink blended the bottom three-quarters of the panel using Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Distress inks, concentrating the darker shade towards the bottom. I then flicked some leftover paint from my palette to the panel using a paint brush for a fun splatter effect. Next, I matted my panel with a piece of Mirror Gold Cardstock and adhered the panel to a side-folding A5-sized white card base with tape runner.

Spellbinders Guest Design Post | Precision Layering Basics Collection

Hello, crafty friends!
 I’m so thrilled to be guest designing on the Spellbinders blog using the new Precision Layering Basics Collection. Basic nesting dies are a staple in every crafter's stash and there are so many things one can do with them. The dies in the Precision Layering Basics Collection are designed to cut perfectly spaced layers of 1/8-inch, and when combined with the B Sets, help you achieve a 1/16-inch border. This means no more measuring, as the work is done for you. I used the various dies in this collection to create three easy and fun cards for a variety of occasions. 


My first card features the Precision Layering A2 A Etched DiesPrecision Layering A2 B Etched Dies, and the Precision Layering Mini Slimline A Etched DiesPrecision Layering Mini Slimline B Etched Dies. I kept this card simple to go with the modern look of the die set. I used various colors of cardstock from my stash to make the colour block background and adhered bunches of pink and blue flowers around the sentiment.

To create my card, I first cut Snowdrift, Pink Sand, and Brushed Silver Cardstock using different layering dies from the Precision Layering A2 A Etched Die Set and arranged the pieces together to create my background. This is a great technique to use existing scraps in your stash and utilizing them for creating card backgrounds! Next, I die cut Brush Gold Cardstock using the Layer 1 Die from the Precision Layering A2 A Etched Dies and adhered it down using liquid adhesive to my background panel. I then matted the card panel with Pink Sand Cardstock and attached it to an top-folding white card base using tape runner. 

Next, I die cut Brush Gold Cardstock and White Fun Foam using the Layer 3 and Layer 4 Dies from the Precision Layering Mini Slimline A Etched Dies to create a die cut frame for my card front. I used two different nesting dies to create the frame, but you can stick to one if you'd like. I adhered the pieces one on top of the other using liquid adhesive

Next, I die cut Snowdrift Cardstock using various flowers and foliage dies from the Mini Blooms and Sprigs Etched Dies and Layered Blooms Etched Dies. I coloured the die cut pieces using Jane Davenport's Watercolour Brush Markers and then foam-mounted them to the panel for dimension. Once that was done, I used Gold Hot Foil to foil Onyx Cardstock using one of the sentiments from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and cut it out using the coordinating die. Then, to finish, I adhered the pieces onto my panel using foam tape for a raised effect. 


My second card features the Precision Layering Mini Slimline A Etched DiesPrecision Layering Mini Slimline B Etched Dies, and the Primrose Heart Façade Etched Dies. I have long been a fan of Slimline cards, so I was absolutely thrilled to know that Spellbinders now offers Mini Slimline dies as well. These are such a fun alternative to standard A2-sized cards and I love working with this size. The idea for this card was to create a floral design on a dark background, surrounding a foiled sentiment frame and the Precision Layering Mini Slimline A Etched Dies made it such a breeze to create my card design. 

To create my card, I first die cut Brush Gold Cardstock using the Layer 1 Die from the Precision Layering Mini Slimline A Etched Dies to create a die-cut frame for my card front. Next, I die cut Navy Blue Cardstock using the coordinating Layer 2 Die from the Precision Layering Mini Slimline B Etched Dies. Then, I die cut Brush Gold Cardstock using the the Layer 4 Die from the Precision Layering Mini Slimline A Etched Dies. I adhered the layers together using liquid adhesive to create my background panel.

Next, I die-cut Snowdrift Cardstock using various flower and foliage dies from the Mini Blooms and Sprigs Etched Dies and Layered Blooms Etched Dies. I used a combination of Jane Davenport's Watercolour Brush Markers and Copic Markers to colour and shade the die-cut pieces, but you can also cut out the pieces from colored cardstock and assemble them together, or use any colouring medium of your choice. 

Next, I die cut Brush Gold and Snowdrift Cardstock using the Layer 11 Dies from the Precision Layering Mini Slimline A Etched Dies and Precision Layering Mini Slimline B Etched Dies. I stamped my sentiment from the All Occasion Sentiments Stamp and Die Set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and adhered the layers together using liquid glue and then foam-mounted them to the panel for dimension. Then, to finish, I attached my card background to an top-folding navy card base using tape runner. I really liked working with a dark background for this card, I think it helps the pale pink and coral flowers pop. 


My final card for today features the Precision Layering A2 A Etched DiesPrecision Layering A2 B Etched Dies, and the Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base Etched Dies. I love stretching my supplies to get more out of them and the background for this card was so fun to create using just nesting dies. With a few butterflies and a big, pretty sentiment, this card came together easily.

To make my card, I first die cut a piece of Brush Gold Cardstock using the Layer 1 Die from the Precision Layering A2 B Etched Dies and Snowdrift Cardstock using the coordinating Layer 2 Die from the Precision Layering A2 A Etched Dies. I mat the white panel with the foiled card panel using tape runner and then attached it to a top-folding white card base made from Snowdrift Cardstock.

Next, I die cut Snowdrift and Gold Glitter Cardstock using various nesting dies included in the Precision Layering A2 A Etched Dies. I coloured the pieces using Copic markers, but you can use Distress Oxides or inks as well if you like. Next, I assembled the pieces down on my panel and adhered them using liquid adhesive. I trimmed the overhanging pieces using a paper trimmer and used the leftover die-cut pieces on the other side of the panel to create a continuous background design. This is a great technique to get more out of your basic shape dies. One can create a multitude of die cut or embossed background for your cards using simple techniques like such. 

Then, to embellish my card, front I die cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the butterfly dies from the Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base Etched Die Set. I used Copic Markers to colour and shade the die-cut pieces, but you can also cut out the pieces from colored cardstock and assemble them together. I also die cut the body of the butterflies from Gold Glitter Cardstock for interest. Next, I stamped the sentiment from Sending You stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Snowdrift Cardstock and cut out with one of the coordinating dies. I popped in on to my panel using foam adhesive for dimension. Once that was done, I stamped the accompanying sentiment from the same stamp set on to a strip of Snowdrift Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink and popped it on to my panel using foam adhesive too. I really love how easy and fun this was to make!

We've got tons of inspiration and giveaways for you on the hop today, so keep reading till the end of this post for more information.

I have an A2 Shaped Note Card cum Pocket to share for the hop today using the Spellbinders  – January 2022 Die of the Month Set. This month’s Large Die of the Month Kit, “A Pocket Full of Love“, is a large set of 11 dies that cuts a beautifully ornate pocket as well as a fun shaped note card to insert.  You can add the pocket to your cards and scrapbook pages or use it on its own for a gorgeous and unique love letter like I’ve done here. It all fits in an A2 envelope, which is perfect for Valentine’s Day, but could totally be used for other occasions throughout the year!

To create my card, I first Alabaster Cardstock using the Pocket Tab Dies from the A Pocket Full of Love Die Set. I die cut the layers twice, and then adhered them together using Craft Glue to create the pocket for my note-card. Next, I die-cut Alabaster Cardstock and White Foam using the Decorative Pocket Die from the set and layered the pieces atop the pocket using Craft Glue. Next, I die-cut Wild BerryPink SandRainforest, Fern, Gold Glitter Cardstock, and White Foam using the Flower die included in the set.

Once that was done, I die-cut Beeswax and Glacier Cardstock using the Note Card Insert Die in the A Pocket Full of Love Die Set. Next, I die-cut Alabaster Cardstock, Gold Glitter Cardstock, and White Foam Sheets using the Pull-Out Decorative Heart Die from the set and adhered the layers together with Craft Glue for a strong hold. I adhered the ivory die-cut piece on top of the gold glitter die-cut with liquid glue, offsetting them a bit to form a shadow. I also die-cut Wild Berry Cardstock and  White Foam using the Tiny Flower Die from the Set and layered them together for a raised effect. Next, I stamped a sentiment from the "One Heart, One Love" Clear Stamp of the Month Set on to a strip of Snowdrift Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black and popped it on to my panel using foam squares for dimension.


Once that was done, I embossed Glacier Cardstock using the NEW "Spreading Love" Embossing Folder from Spellbinders. This Club has sold out for the month, but you can check back later in the 'Past Clubs' section on the website to get your hands on it.  Be sure to sign up for the Spellbinders Clubs right away on the 1st of the month not to miss out on any future designs!

Then, to finish, I mat my card panel with Mirror Gold Cardstock before adhering it a side-folding A2 Alabaster card base with tape runner. I didn't stamp a sentiment in the pocket letter, but if you wish, you could do that to personalize your card even further.

Guest Post using Spellbinders Garden Shutters Collection


Hello, crafty friends!
I'm so honoured to be guest posting today on the Spellbinders blog using dies from the new Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken. This is a very unique collection that can be used to create a fun element of motion. It creates a beautiful card, and with one pull of a tab, the shutters open to reveal a sweet surprise sentiment, but the die layers can really be used on any kind of card!


I had to start out by trying my hand at one of the classic Garden Shutters cards first. The Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base Etched Dies was the first set to catch my eye and I had to use it to create a delicate and feminine encouragement card for a friend. I also used elements from the Eyelet Lace Frame Etched Dies and the Primrose Heart Façade Etched Dies to embellish my card.

To create my card, I first die-cut Snowdrift Cardstock three times using the kinetic layer die in the Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base Etched Die Set. I folded the layers following the instructional PDF HERE and adhered down the layers using liquid adhesive to my already die-cut 5" X 7" card base. It did take me a while to get the configuration right, but once you get the hang of it, these will be a breeze to make! Next, I die cut Snowdrift Cardstock and Mirror Gold Cardstock using the Decorative Rectangle Insert Die from the Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base Etched Die Set. I adhered the layers together using liquid glue, allowing a bit of the gold to show as a shadow. 

Then, to embellish my card, front I die cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the butterfly and primrose dies from the Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base Etched Die Set and Primrose Heart Façade Etched Dies. I used Copic Markers to colour and shade the die-cut pieces, but you can also cut out the pieces from colored cardstock and assemble them together. I also die cut the body of the butterflies from Mirror Gold Cardstock for interest. Next, I used Gold Hot Foil to foil Onyx Cardstock using one of the sentiments from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and cut it out using the coordinating die. I adhered the piece onto my panel using foam tape for a raised effect.


Next, I die cut Waterfall Cardstock with the Scallop Rim and Outer Eyelet Insert Dies in the Eyelet Lace Frame Etched Die Set and adhered it on the front of the card base with liquid adhesive. Then, I die cut Waterfall and Mirror Gold Cardstock using the Pull Tab dies and adhered it to the back of the top front piece of the card to create the interactive motion for the card. When the recipient pulls on the top tab, the shutters open and the scene assembles itself almost magically. It's such a joy to look at how it works! I adhered down the various die-cut elements using foam adhesive for depth and dimension and completed the card by adhering down my card front panel to a side-folding Waterfall card base.



If you're not a fan of 5" X 7" Cards and would like something more petite and pretty, the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Dies is just the set for you! Here I used the interactive A2 (4.25 x 5.5-inch) card base to create a soft floral birthday card.

To create my card, I die cut A2-sized Alabaster Cardstock thrice using the kinetic layer die included in the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Die Set. Once the base of my card was die-cut and ready, I folded the layers following the instructional PDF HERE and adhered down the layers using liquid adhesive to my already die-cut A2 card base. Next, I die cut Pink Sand and Alabaster Cardstock using the Design Rectangle outline and insert Dies from the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Die Set. I adhered down the layers to the front and back of the shutter layers for interest and then proceeded with embellishing the card front.

I die-cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the Angled and Side Flower Dies and the Stem Dies from the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Die Set. I coloured the individual die-cut pieces using Copic Markers, adding some simple shading to each die-cut, however you can always use Distress inks or Watercolour Brush Markers too if you like. 

Next, I die cut Mirror Gold Cardstock using the 'Happy Birthday To You' Dies from the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Die Set and adhered it down on my card panel using liquid adhesive. For the reverse layers, I die-cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the Angled and Side Flower Dies and the Stem Dies and Butterfly 2 Dies from the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Die Set and Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base Etched Die Set. Once again, I coloured the pieces with Copic Markers and did some light shading and blending on the daisies for interest.


Then, I die cut Graphite Cardstock with the A2 Card Base included in the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Die Set. Next, I die-cut the kinetic layer die from the set twice to create a frame for my card and adhered it on the front of the card frame piece with liquid adhesive. Next, I die cut Alabaster Cardstock using the Large Rectangle Outer Rim and Insert Die together from the Fluted Classics Rectangles Etched Dies and adhered the piece down onto my panel with liquid adhesive. I also die-cut Pink Sand Cardstock using the Pull Tab dies included in the Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7" Card Base Etched Die Set and adhered it to the back of the top and bottom frame piece to create the interactive motion for the card. 


I adhered down all the different die cut elements to the card front using foam adhesive and matted the entire panel with Mirror Gold Cardstock. Then, to finish, I adhered the card front to a top-folding Pink Sand card base with tape runner. The layers in the set make it effortless to create a distinctive card! These cards can easily be mass-produced as well if you would like to create and give these cards to your friends and/or family members. There is something about interactive cards that appeals to all age groups. It's so rewarding to create them too! 


If you don’t want to create kinetic cards, this collection also has some gorgeous accessory die sets! I used the Eyelet Lace Frame Etched Dies and Primrose Heart Façade Etched Dies and lots of intricate layers to create this floral congratulations card.

For my card, I began by creating a top-folding A7-sized card base out of Pink Sand Cardstock by trimming it to 7” x 10” and scoring it down the center. Next, I die-cut Alabaster Cardstock using the Scallop Rim and Outer Eyelet Insert Dies from the Eyelet Lace Frame Etched Dies. Next, I die-cut Alabaster Cardstock using the Inner Rectangle Outline and Eyelet Insert Dies from the same set and layered it over the intricate die-cut frame with foam adhesive. Then, I cut Alabaster Cardstock using the smallest Inner Rectangle Outline and Inner Inner Oval Outline Dies and popped it over the die-cut panel using foam adhesive

Once my card layers were in place, I die-cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the flower layer and leaf dies from the Primrose Heart Façade Etched Dies. I inked the centre of the petals using Coral, while the tips and the centres of the leafy branches were colored using Seaweed and Siren. I die-cut some additional foliage from Snowdrift Cardstock using dies from the Flourished Fleurit Die Set and the Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies and coloured them using the same colours as above.   

Next, I die cut Alabaster Cardstock and Mirror Gold Cardstock using the Inner Oval Outline Die from the Eyelet Lace Frame Etched Dies. I used the negative die-cut piece to stamp a sentiment from the All Occasion Sentiments Stamp and Die Set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and adhered the layers together using liquid glue, allowing a bit of the gold to show as a shadow. I then popped it on the die-cut panel using foam adhesive for dimension. Then, to finish, I adhered all the flowers and leaves down to the left of my panel using a combination of foam adhesive and liquid adhesive.

Spellbinders Guest Design Post | Love You More Collection


Hello, crafty friends!
I'm so honoured to be guest posting today on the Spellbinders blog! I'm sharing a set of two cards today using dies from the NEW Love You More Collection. This die cutting collection features two sets that you can mix and match to create a variety of projects ranging from Valentine's Day cards or Anniversary Cards, just to name a few.

The Open House Door Base Die Set coordinates together with the Open House Valentines Set, but if you don't have that in your stash, you can easily substitute it with the Always Welcome Die Set as all of the accessories mix and match between these two styles of doors.

My first card features the Open House Valentines Set. I wanted to showcase how the die set could be used even without the front door die and this would be perfect to send to a friend or a loved one!

To create my card, I first trimmed piece of Snowdrift Cardstock to 4.25” x 5.5” and ink blended the top three-quarters of the panel using Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass Distress inks, concentrating the darker shade towards the top. Next, I matted my panel with a piece of Brush Gold Cardstock. 

I die cut Wild BerryPink Sand, and Brush Gold Cardstock using the banner dies included in the Open House Valentines Set. I adhered each of the pieces down on my panel using foam adhesive for dimension. Next, I die cut Vellum using a Scalloped Circle die included in the Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Circles Small Etched Dies. Then, I die cut Snowdrift Cardstock using the 1-1/8-inch Circle Die from the Nestabilities Small Standard Circles Etched Dies. I layered the two pieces together, one on top of the other, using foam adhesive. Next, I die cut Wild Berry and Pink Sand Cardstock using the heart dies included in the Open House Valentines Set. I also die cut Pink Sand and Brush Gold Cardstock using the cute envelope and arrow dies included in the set. I adhered all the different die cut pieces on my panel using a mix of liquid glue and foam adhesive. 

Once that was done, I die cut SnowdriftWild Berry, and Brush Gold Cardstock with the door mat dies in the set. I layered the pieces together and adhered it on my panel using foam piece. I also die cut some mini hearts using leftovers from the die cut pieces to add to my card panel using liquid adhesive. Then, to complete, I went ahead and adhered the panel to a top-folding A2-sized white card base with tape runner.



For this card, I started off by die-cutting Snowdrift Cardstock using the Circular Stitch Background Etched Die in my Spellbinders Platinum 6" Machine. This die is super versatile and I love the beautiful die cut details in it! I matted the entire die cut panel with Pink Sand and Waterfall Cardstock before adhering to it a top-folding A2-sized white card base.   

I die-cut Pink Sand Cardstock, Brush Gold Cardstock, and White Foam Sheets using the outline and insert dies included in the Love You More Die Set. I adhered the pink die-cut sentiment on top of the gold die-cut with liquid glue, offsetting them a bit to form a shadow. I then adhered the shadow layers for each of the die cut pieces for dimension and depth. I then ink blended Picked Raspberry ink to the top three-quarters of the sentiment die-cut pieces for more depth. Once that was done, I adhered the pieces down to my panel using foam adhesive.

I die cut SnowdriftWaterfall, Brushed Silver, and Pink Sand Cardstock using the mini flower, leaf, and foliage dies from the Mini Blooms and Sprigs Etched Dies and Layered Blooms Etched Dies. I assembled the floral sprays together in the corners of the card and adhered them down on my panel using a mix of foam adhesive and liquid adhesive for dimension and interest. Then, to finish, I adhered a few sparkling blue rhinestones to the flower centers and around my panel to embellish.
