New Inspirations with Amazing Paper Grace dies-Blog Hop


Good morning and thanks for joining us! We have a blog hop going on today and the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team spent the week creating with the Graceful Frame Maker. We each picked a border from the Graceful Borders collection to work with and spun it into a mitered frame or mitered frame background for use on a card.
The Graceful Frame Maker is a die that will cut four miters to create a framed card from borders, punched strips or tall dies – you can see a step by step tutorial —–> HERE and a video —­> HERE.
 I’ll tell you a little bit about my card and will share a link list below so that you can see the creations of each person on the Creative Team as well as learn how to win a free Amazing Paper Grace Venise Lace Collection Die.


For This card, I have used the Graceful Floral Lace border and the Graceful Sweet Words border. I have spritzed a very pale green colour on the die cuts to match them with the damask back ground paper.
The oval die cuts are from Vintage Elegance collection. All the links of the supplies are given below.

My Second card is a favourite of mine.

Here, I have used the Graceful Frame Maker along with the Graceful Damask Border. The Frame maker is the perfect die to get a mitred corner on the frames that we can make and one can play with so many borders to get a whole range of new designs.

I am constantly amazed by how different everyone's creations are using the same die. I keep coming back for inspiration. The border dies are really nice, I like the damask one, although I don't really think it's a border die, I bought it and have used it several times.

This one is beautiful as the others. The one border that I love working with this most is the Victoria Corner. This die has helped make my insert just beautiful. The Bella Clair Border is just remarkable.

Wow! Very eye-catching. Maybe I'll start with something less intricate because I would go nuts trying to match that stuff up. But you did a great job! Stunning card.
