Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments along with Spellbinders Regal Frame and A2 Tranquil Moments - more details at www.amazingpapergrace.com
Well hey, posts two days in a row!  I’m excited today to share new stamp sets from JustRite Papercraft and you’re gonna love the sweet handwriting style of the set we’re using today – it’s called Grand Handwritten Sentiments.  It has some unique sentiments and you know we’re always looking for sentiments that sound like us.  I think ‘How are You’ and ‘Miss You’ are my favs – I send that kind of note all the time but I crumbled and added a  Birthdays Card to the stash because I’m always in need.

Can I officially say that the purple slate color (at least that’s what I call it)  has found a way into my heart?  I don’t know the manufacturer but it’s a lovely vintage looking shade and worked for the romantic feel I was looking for.  This is a simple layered card with a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card base, matting layers of purple slate and cream followed by a digital paper which I enlarged with Photoshop.   Spellbinders Regal Frame adds a gracious and elegant layer that I threaded my bow through.  I stamped my sentiment and  finished off with the filigree piece from Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments and a couple of pearls.

CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED

Scrunched Flower Tutorial

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design (The Best Kiss) and Spellbinders Labels One Card Front - tutorial at  www.amazingpapergrace.com
I’m so tickled to share this morning!  I’m sharing the flower tutorial you all have been requesting and there was no better way to show those flowers off than with a new Quietfire Design sentiment – a cuddly, lovely, romantic one at that!! As you know, I’ve been so smitten with scrunched paper flowers as of late.   They are so easy to make and after seeing the inspiration on Pinterest, I set about to figure out how to ease them into my workflow.   To me the key is to have a nicely balanced die template that will allow you to work with the wet paper without tearing the petals off and for this I’m using Spellbinders Garden Blooms (by A Gilded Life).

My 6″ square card features another outstanding set of new stamps by my friend Suzanne Cannon with Quietfire Design, it’s called The Best Kiss.  This is definitely for the heart throb in your life and I say its a promising candidate for new found romance, wedding and anniversary or just to show love.  It’s my first time to try out a couple of new Spellbinders that have been sitting on the shelf – the background is Spellbinders Labels One Card Front.  I embellished the Card Front with Spellbinders Labels One and the accent piece from Spellbinders Imperial Square (there are four pieces, they are all turned upside down and glued behind Labels One).

So here’s the video showing how I made the flowers:

CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED 
Stamps:  Quietfire Design – The Best Kiss
Craft Paper
:  Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80lb smooth, Bazzill, Papertrey Ink
Ink:  Versafine – Onyx Black
Accessories:  Spellbinders Labels One Card Front, Spellbinders Labels OneSpellbinders Imperial Square Spellbinders Garden Blooms (by A Gilded Life), Recollection Pearls, May Arts Silk Ribbon, clear embossing powder

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I actually made a card with the flowers and ribbon shown in the video and I’m hoping I can share it next week!  So who’s putting flowers on their list of things to try next?

Question Parking Lot:
In case you wondered . . .
I used Papertrey Ink paper for the blooms on the card above.  For the video I used Coredinations – you should do fine with almost any paper you choose :-)

I prefer to dry petals over night but they can be dried with a heat gun if you’re impatient.  The heat gun makes the petals more brittle in my opinion.

No snipping needed on top petal if you want an open hollow in the center of your flower.  Snip the center, roll and glue to fill in that hollow with top petal.

The extra petal I made in the video looks much like the spritzed petals I made except the coloring is more subtle and the overall color is the color of the original paper.

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design - If I Had A Star and Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25 - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning!  I’m popping in quickly again to share yet another sentiment from Quietfire Design – If I had a Star.  This is a sentiment that is now mounted onto cling rubber and I thought it would be perfect for my framed card.  As you can tell I have been on a romantic and feminine card kick as of late – I made a series of cards using the things I have out on my counter and this was one of several I crafted at the same time.  I started out with a card base onto which I added Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty Five.  I love using  Spellbinders Mediterranean Medallion embossing folder because it’s quite easy to trim along the embossed lines to make a frame.  I mounted this as the upper layer over top of my sentiment.

I finished up by pulling a couple of my flowers from a recent stash using Spellbinders Garden Blooms (by A Gilded Life).   A seam binding bow and pearls finished things off!!  I love a nice big sentiment like this one – it fills out the frame very nicely :-)
