Amazing Paper Grace Be Leave Me Etched Dies from the Stained Glass Bouquet Collection - A Gift Bag and Step by Step Pictorial

Hi everyone and welcome to today's project.


I wanted to showcase the really pretty new Be Leave Me Etched Dies which have been designed by Becca Feeken and kindly sent to me to use for project ideas.


I haven't shared a Gift Box/Bag idea in a little while and I really wanted to show how gorgeous this set is for creating a simple yet stunning focal point for a gift package.   I used the largest intricate die from the set and die-cut it in gold and white card stock and then layered them using adhesive back foam strips to create a topper with great dimension.   This topper is great for using with pretty decorative papers, making it centre stage - the star of the show !!


I thought I would a quick step by step in pictures to show how I put this gift box together:-

Step 1

Two pieces of decorative paper and two pieces of card stock measuing 6 x 6 inches.  Stick the decorative pieces to each piece of card. 

Step 2

Two pieces for the sides measuring 6 x 2-1/2 inches.
Score @ 1/2 and 2 inches on the short side.  Notch @ 1-1/4 inches.
Score diagonal score lines from the bottom inside edges up to the notches  Burnish all score lines.

One piece for the base measuring 7 x 2-1/2 inches.
Score @ 1/2 and 6-1/2 inches on the long side.
Score @ 1/2 and 2 inches on the short side.   
Remove each outer square (wedge each edge if you wish).

Step 3

Step 4


3.   Apply double-sided tape to each short side of the base and adhere the sides as illustraed.

4.    Then apply double-sided tape to all the longer edges as illustrated.

Step 5













Stick your decorative panels to the base as shown (making sure that your decorative piece is the right way up).


Your template should look like this on the reverse.

Step 6


Bring up the sides and stick the front to these.   Repeat with the remaining panel.


You gift bag will look like this.

Step 7


Create four hole reinforcers with coloured card.   Use a 1/4 inch circle punch to punch out four holes.
Then place a 1/2 inch circle punch over each hole and put out your reinforcers.   These will strengthen the holes of your gift bag.

Step 8


Use a pencil to mark where you want to punch your holes on the front of your gift bag.   Punch out the holes with a 1/4 inch circle punch.

Step 9

Stick your hole reinforcers over the punched holes.

Step 10


Use the punched holes on the front as guides for the holes on the back, by squeezing the bag together and tracing around the punched holes on the front.   Then punch out the holes on the back side and reinforce as per the front.

Thread some ribbon through the holes and tie a pretty decorative bow.


By the way - my gold embossed sentiment is from the Make A Scene Sentiments photopolymer stamp set designed by Becca. 

Well that's it from me for today.   I do hope you like my gift bag idea.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will pop back.   

Bye for now and ......................"happy crafting everybody!".

Amazing Paper Grace Tulip Trio Etched Dies - An Invitation Card

Hello and Happy Sunday again !!!   Gosh the weekend comes around very quickly!

Today I have a card project to share with you which I made to showcase the gorgeous new Tulip Trio Etched Dies which have been designed by Becca Feeken as part of her new Stained Glass Bouquet Collection.


The card I have designed would be perfect for making invitations, as I have added a "Be Our Guest" sentiment to it.   That sentiment is from Make A Scene Photopolymer stamp set and I co-ordinated it with the banner die which forms part of the Make A Scene Card Base Etched Dies.


This illustration shows you exactly what dies are included in the Tulip Trio Etched Dies:-

I opted for a bright and crisp colour pallette and I love how all the layers combine to create depth and interest.   My card base is 5 x 5 inches.  I also used the really useful Picot Petite Squares Etched Dies, for the base layer.


I thought it would be nice to add some teeny tiny pearl embellishments to frame the focal point.


Like I said, I really do think this design would make perfect invitations for many different occasions.

I do hope you like it.   I had fun with it.

That's it from me for today.  Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you will visit my blog again.

Bye for now and .............................."happy crafting everybody!"

Amazing Paper Grace April Die of the Month Blog Hop – Dahlia Dimensional Doily


This month is coming up all flowers!  We turned spring up a notch and have more "unique" blooming flowers for you to try.  Today I'm introducing a set of dimensional flowers in the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the month for April 2021, Dahlia Dimensional Doily.


Dies were furnished to Creative Team Members by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace.

Three new flowers.  We are showcasing three new flowers!  Easy, easier, easiest.  Easy - Dahlia Dimensional Doily is a flower made with round disks that link together to form the base and the petals.  Built on the same concept as dimensional doilies, this representation of flowers creates a focal element that has some height.  Easier - One round piece in the set, with eight cut and folded circles combines to make a familiar round dimensional flower.  Easiest - Sweet spiral flowers with a score line that lets you fold over and shape the spiral. Oh, and don't forget a background that when cut twice gives you a full A2 Background.

All together the background and flowers create a sweet, layered dimensional finished card that can be made for an A2 or an A7 card base!

 


There are 11 dies included in the Dahlia Dimensional Doily.

 

 

My Project Today using Dahlia Dimensional Doily.



For my card project I decided to go big with the fabulous dhalia dies, making the large flower the star of the show.  I stuck to a simple colour palette and added lots of layers to really create depth and dimension.


The sentiment is from Becca's Make A Scene Sentiments photopolymer stamps.



For my little box project I decided to use the two spiral dies in the set to make some rolled roses for my topper.  I finished each flower by adding pearly beads to the centre.  They sit across a topper which was made from the Picot Petite Ovals Etched Dies also designed by Becca.  




Designer Tip:  Have you noticed the embossed panel on the top of my box?


This was made using the two intricate panel dies in the April Kit.   Instead of die-cutting them, I dry embossed them using my die-cutting machine !!   Its a great way of stretching those dies.



Supplies:
Stamps:   Spellbinders Make a Scene Sentimens (STP-025)
Paper:      Crafter's Companion Neenah Classic Crest & Paper Mill Direct Pink Plain Card
Ink:           Wow White Regular Embossing Powder
Accessories:  Amazing Paper Grace April 2021 Die of the Month – Dahlia Dimensional Doily

Tone on Tone Peony Bouquet with Copper Embossing

Hi everybody

Today I am sharing a card I recently put together ready to send to one of my crafty friends, to say hello!



I chose pink card stock and decided to colour the stamped and embossed flowers using Altenew Artist Marker R302 (Frosty Pink).

For the topper I used my Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Ovals Etched Dies which were kindly sent to me by Becca Feeken who designed the dies.


The sentiment was created using the Tall Alpha Lowercase stamp and die bundle and also the Sentiment Strips 2 stamp set, both by Altenew.

I have to say that the Tall Alpha Lowercase bundle is my favourite set of alphabet dies.  The letters are elegant and slimline and are not too overbearing, which some alphabet dies can be.   I like that you can stamp the letters and then die cut them, or you can simple die-cut without stamping.  

That's it from me for today.  Thanks for having a little lookie.

Bye for now and ........................ "happy crafting everyone!"

Sweet Rondure Etched Dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Stained Glass Bouquet Collection

Hi everyone

Wishing you all a Happy Easter Monday.


Today I am shareinga card project which I made using the lovely Sweet Rondure Etched Dies which were recently sent to me by Becca Feeken.  These dies are part of the new Stained Glass Bouquet Collection which I have been enjoying working with.

For this little project (the card is a 5 x 5 inches), I decided to do some tone on tone blending.   I die-cut the Sweet Rondure circle three times.   Once in gold, once in black and once in aqua.


I selected some of aqua pieces and shaded and blended using alcohol markers in the same tones.  I started with the darker shades at the bottom, blending them out with the lighter.  Once done I adhered the gold rondure to the centre panel of my card and stuck down the aqua and black pieces to form a pattern.

Then I die-cut the rose motif and added a "Happy Birthday" tag to complete my card.


The illustration below details what dies are included in this set:-

Well that's it from me for today.

Just for your info, I recently shared a step by step pictorial over in the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Encourage Group on Facebook  for the cute little project  below, for which I also used the Sweet Rondure Etched Dies 


Well folks, that's it from me.  Thank you for joining me here today and I do hope you will pop back for a return visit.

Bye for now and ......................."happy crafting everybody!"
