I am so excited to be a part of the Spellbinders Vintage Treasures Blog Hop by Becca Feeken. One can not help but be mesmerised by Becca's amazing cards and this collection is truly royal and beautiful like all other collections

You can see the Vintage Treasure Collection here

My first card is has a colour scheme of ivory and gold which happens to be my favourite too.  have used the  Shapeabilities Cannetille Rectangle Etched Dies and die cut them in ivory and gold paper. I them layered them as shown . I have also used my scoring board to add score lines at the card base and also in the centre insert.
The beautiful white flowers are made with Shapeabilities Cinch and Go V Etched Dies. I added some brown ink in the centre with my sponge dauber and layered two big and one medium flower after I embossed them a lottle. Then some gold prills were added to finish the flowers.
I layered the flowers and leaves along with gold thread bunch. The sentiment tags are from Becca's previous collection  Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Elegance  Graceful Tiny Tag Stamp and Die Set
The Spellbinders Platinum machine was used to give these beautiful die cuts in fast and easy way. Even the intricate detailed dies can be cut like butter in this machine.

My second card has a combination of Blue and ivory.  For  this card , I have used pearlescent blue paper. I cut the die cuts from Shapeabilities Infinity Link Border Etched Dies  and the label with sentiment is from Shapeabilities Antiquities Square Etched Dies . The flowers are made from
 Shapeabilities Cinch and Go V Etched Dies.

New Collections Inspiration Blog Hop + Giveaway --Spellbinders

Hello Friends,

Welcome to the December 19th Spellbinders Blog Hop.

I am super excited to be a part of the NEW COLLECTIONS INSPIRATION BLOG HOP 

This blog hop brings together amazing crafters and is a wonderful way to have a panorama of projects all at a time and also gives an opportunity to enhance one's creative skills.

Spellbinders has been with me ever since I started crafting and now s an inseparable part of my craft room. Today, I am featuring the Exquisite Splendor by Marisa Job.  Marisa is a wonderful designer and more so she is a beautiful person with a warm heart and I regard her more as a friend. Having met her during CHA 2018 has been my happiest moment and I am always in awe of her.

I have three projects here that showcases the exquisite dies designed by Marisa.
If you have come from Erum Tasneem's blog, your next stop will be at Sharyn Sowell's blog. You must stop by each blog to complete the hop .The full blog hop list is given at end of my post.

I am a very addicted and passionate flower maker and flowers form an important part of my projects. I have used the Exquisite Splendor dies designed by Marisa Job -  Shapeabilities Square Medallion Tiles Etched Dies  , Shapeabilities Swirly Doily Etched Dies and the Shapeabilities Leaf Border Frame Etched .Dies . You can click on these to take you to the Spellbinders store where you can see other beautiful dies under the same category.
I have two cards and a box with tag to show the beauty of these dies. Together with these , I have used other dies designed by Marisa as they complimented well with my projects. You can find the entire range of dies designed by Marisa -Here

Here are my projects.

My first project highlights the spirit of Christmas. With the festive season just a few days away, I wanted to use the Swirly Doily die along with some white flowers made from the Textured Flowers die. To give a dimensional look to my die, I cut four of them in white card stock and adhered them together. Then I embossed the die cut using Gold embossing powder and heat setting it. The gold is little dull that really brightens the flowers with golden fillers.


  My second card is a favourite of mine. I have used the Square Medallion Tiles die along with the Leaf Border Frame die to create a lacy background. Just the addition of these die cuts make it so easy to create beautiful background. On this, I made flowers using the Textured Flowers die and arranged them on the card. The base of the card is subtle shabby pattern paper.


So beautiful are the dies designed by Marisa, I could not stop myself from creating this tiny gift box and a matching tag. I used the More than Milk carton die also designed by Marisa and decorated it using tiles from the Leaf Border Frame die set.  Since this frame has rectangle design tiles , it was fairly easy to cut them and use as panels for decoration. See the matching die that looks so pretty with this. I kept the colours soft pastel to highlight the beautiful design.

So these are my three projects. I hope you will like these and also use the dies from Marisa to create exquisite projects. Also tell me which one is your favourite. I would love to hear from you. Do stop by each blog in the list given below to get loads of inspiration.


To celebrate this release, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes on Sunday, December 23rd at 11:59 pm EDT. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post the following Monday. Winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes.

Introducing The Venise Lace Blog Hop

Hi there, welcome to the Amazing  Paper Grace Creative Team Blog Hop. Today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken called Venise Lace.  I'll list all of the creative team so that you don't miss a beat but don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments left on each of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team blogs - details at the bottom of my post.   We thought it would be awesome to introduce the dies along with samples to show what you can make.  So, without further ado let me talk about the two dies I get to introduce:

by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace in the Venise Lace Collection.

For my project, I have created a card that highlights the beauty of the Marcheline Plume die. So majestic and royal is this die, that I decided to keep all other elements and embellishments to the minimum. Its a complete die set with lacy medallion that can be used separately or paired with the main die. Here I have cut it into two and used on both ends of the circle .

I love this die as it is a complete set to create grandeur cards with so much ease. The three dies available in the set can be layered to make beautiful and ornate projects.

Here is the supplies that I used to make this card.

My second projects is a Floral Grandeur card. 
This card highlights the Spellbinders S4-792 Venise Lace Cinch and Go Flowers Two by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace in the Venise Lace Collection.

For this card, I wanted to highlight the beautiful flowers that are so easy to make using the Cinch and Go Flowers 2 die. The flowers come in many sizes so one can make big multi layered flowers like this or simple filler flowers as shown above,
I am very passionate about flower making so this die is certainly my favourite and I can create a variety of blooms with this one die.
Here is a step by step tutorial on how to create these flowers. But stay tuned till the end for the giveaway information and the blog links.

Cut the flowers and leaves in 270 gsm matte finish white card stock and colour with Archival inks.

                                  Soak the flowers in water for 10 seconds and drain on a towel

Hold each petal with a tweezer and fold together and curve out the two top edges as shown. Repeat for all the flowers.

One flower requires 3 big , two medium and one small die cut. 
Adhere the layers together with glue offsetting the petals with each layers.

For the filler flowers, choose the smallest die cut and remove a petal. 
Colour the centre with green ink

                  Shape the flowers with an embossing tool and pollens or pearls in the centre.

 Colour and shape the leaves

 Arrange the flowers and leaves on the project

These dies are available at the Spellbinders site. So you can check them here .

Do not know how well I succeeded! This also goes for the following cha Supplies used are:-- cardstock-local, spellbinders-scalloped square, lace pendant, tag, distress ink-- Memento-rhubarb stalk, tim holtz-aged mahogany, CB folder-victoria--, organza ribbon.

This also goes for the following challenges :

And lastly, I took nearly two hours to sort out my stamps and arrange them in a photo album. Now I,m longing for some wooden mounted stamps. As I do not have a single piece. Anyone listening?

So thank you all once again and happy crafting to you all!

These are the cupcakes that I made on my brother-in-law's demand. They are filled with gooey chocolate inside and has delicious butter cream on top. You all are familiar with MS butterfly punches on the top.

Now to some paper craft. I wanted to make a B/W card since a long time but it never got made. But finally, I made one based on card patterns sketch #100 and few things that have gone into making this are --computer generated PP, spellbinders fleur di lis dies, CB victoria embossed folder, sentiments from fiskars and heat embossing on toaster. The flowers are punch crafted and some pearls and crystals to finish it off.
A Closer View.

This card goes for the following challenges:
