Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Cascading Hearts, Spellbinders Victorian Tassels,  Spellbinders Petite Pennants - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned.  If you’re lucky enough to have marvelous spring weather where you are – savor it!  The outdoors is calling me too, in the mean time I have a birthday card to share today.  I’m keeping it short and sweet so I can get all my must do’s done and have outside time.WRBF-4662-2015
Made on a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ base, I layered cream and gold card stock and topped it with Spellbinders Cascading Hearts.  On the next layer I added Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles.  The top and bottom of the rectangle are embellished with Spellbinders Victorian Tassels – I used other pieces from the same set to make the laurel heart as well.  To finish up I stamped Birthday Greetings onto vellum and cut the ends using the ribbon tails pieces from  Spellbinders Petite Pennants.

CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED 
Rubber Stamps:  Anna Griffin
Craft Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb – Natural White,  Gold Foil Card Stock (Hobby Lobby)

Beautiful Inside and Out

Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Romantic Wild Roses and Spellbinders Decorative Applause Embossing Folder and Labels 42 Decorative Elements - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Have you ever used the phrase Beautiful Inside and Out to describe a sweet friend?  Sure you have!   You know them, that’s one of our good friends that has that special glow – she (or he) is so gracious and she’s magically kind without even trying.  It’s not often that I have the energy reserve to tackle the inside of a card, but I was thinking about it recently and thought if I’m truly sending a card to someone like I described, why not do more to make the card beautiful on the inside and out?  When I sat down to the task I immediately knew the stamp set I wanted to use – JustRite Romantic Wild Roses with a touch of vintage flavor using  Spellbinders Decorative Applause 3D Embossing Folder.  It was truly an easy task to accomplish using JustRite Romantic Wild Roses Offset SVG’s otherwise, I’d still be sitting in front of the TV fussy cutting :-)  Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Romantic Wild Roses and Spellbinders Decorative Applause Embossing Folder and Labels 42 Decorative Elements - www.amazingpapergrace.com
The embossing folder was colored by smearing Antique Linen Distress Ink before embossing then repeating the same steps using Tea Dyed Distress Ink (and a little mist of water) An aperture is cut using Spellbinders Labels 42 and then embellished using Spellbinders Labels 42 Decorative Elements.   I used the same dies in a similar arrangement as the outside including the cut flowers.  The outside text is done with JustRite Extended Family Large Fancy Sentiments and enough options that I used the same text to fill the inside.  I offset the area by bordering with Spellbinders Classic Scallops.  There’s just enough open room on the bottom to leave a sweet note for that special friend :-)  How about you, do you decorate the insides or are you ready to move on after making a smashing card on the outside?

Rogers Gardens Swirl Bliss Page

Scrapbook Page by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Swirl Bliss Pocket in the Amazing Paper Grace Collection - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hi there friends.  As promised I’m back with a project that uses my new Spellbinders Swirl Bliss Pocket die from the Amazing Paper Grace Collection.    I wanted to make something other than a card and I think the pockets lend themselves to so many cool projects – a scrapbook page seemed like a good thing to try out.   I talked myself into thinking it was a huge card :-).  Remember, baby steps.  I had just been to Rogers Gardens in Corona del Mar California with two of my sweet friends – Linda Duke and Tosha Leyendekker.   This home and garden destination has exquisite Christmas decorations and room after room of themed displays – we were happy girls and that explains the starry looks in our eyes.

Even though this is pictured from straight on and it’s hard to tell the dimension, I used the pocket die as if it were a cornice and it actually stands out from the page a bit.  By putting another pocket on the bottom it frames the picture.  Then I used the round element to carry embellishment across the page.  I also used Spellbinders Urban Blooms by A Gilded Life  for the spiral flowers and I printed all the memory specifics on Spellbinders Baby Buntings by a Gilded Life.  The tendrils that cascade down from the flowers are from Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents.

This was a stretch for me but it feels great to try something out of my comfort zone :-)

CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED

Thanks so much for stopping by, I’ll have more to share this week.  Happy Monday, I’m wishing you a glorious day!

Oh, by the way – are you sitting for a couple of minutes with your cup of coffee?  I’m gifting you this link to see a three minute video of Rogers Gardens.   Lol, I have to put up a little bit of a disclaimer that I can’t be held responsible for extreme longing, swooning or daydreaming today after you watch :-)   I’ve watched it twice and what a way to start the morning!  Here’s the link ——>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-lqjKg-g4A
