Amazing Paper Grace April 2021 Die of the Month - Dimensional Dahlia Doily - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37073
Last week I introduced a set of dimensional flowers in the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for April 2021, Dahlia Dimensional Doily.  Today it’s my pleasure to get to play with them once again.  I’m not gonna lie, the little spiral flowers are so easy, that they have become my “go to.”  There are people at both extreme ends who use no flowers and then there are folks that cover their card with flowers. I’m three clicks past the no flowers people – I see flowers as punctuation, they add a sweet bit of embellishment.  Toward that end, these really fit the bill!

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!

My Project Today using Dahlia Dimensional Doily:

For my project today, I wanted run away with the rolled flowers.  I mounted them to the filigree panel that when combined makes an A2-sized panel.  It was the perfect landing spot!  I pulled my panels off-center for some visual appeal and then framed the words “With Sympathy” by making your eyes follow the flowers.  Cards don’t get any easier than this – it might have taken me 10 minutes to ink up and roll the flowers.  You’ll want to see the video below for a visual walk-through of how to wet and how to roll the flowers.

Designer Tip:  When working with the spiral dies, spritz your paper with water!  It will keep the paper from being slick and make them stay put and will help when you gently shape and coax them open.

    Becca, these little flowers are so very sweet! You always think of the most clever embellishments to enhance our cards. Thank you for the excellent tutorial as well.ReplyCancel

  • Maryann LaursenApril 9, 2021 - 10:15 am

    Absolut gorgeous Becca. As usual your work is just amazing and sooo beautiful and this card here is no difference, but just as gorgeous as ever. Sooo sad it´s sooo hard and expensive to get these dies overhere, cause there´s sooo many I would really love to have, but with all the extra taxes and all, they´ll unfortunately be sooo expensive, that they´re hard to pay for, but boy are they gorgeous. I absolutely love your adorable worrk with these, and I believe, I would use them all for different results.ReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenApril 9, 2021 - 12:08 pm

      I’m giddy about the little roses too, Sandra! You can also cut them shorter to make for a smaller rose and can wind them tighter. I know these have been around the block before, but I’m so looking forward to keeping them in my stash. I like the smaller one best!ReplyCancel

Amazing Paper Grace April 2021 Die of the Month - Dimensional Dahlia Doily - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37056
I’m no April Fool, but I’m so happy to be moving into a new month.  If you are like me, you are bowled over with spring fever.  The only cure for that, my friend is more flowers.  This month I’ve dreamed up several options in a new Die of the Month created for Spellbinders.  Please welcome the Amazing Paper Grace April 2021 Die of the Month – Dahlia Dimensional Doily.  Dear A2 Card Lovers, this one is for you!  No, but seriously A7 Card Lovers, this one is for you too!

Amazing Paper Grace April 2021 Die of the Month - Dimensional Dahlia Doily - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37056

What’s Inside the Dahlia Dimensional Doily Set

First of all, let me say that this is a mini-collection of options, all together in one set.  You can make three different cards from this one mini-collection.  First, you can make a card with the Dahlia Doily – you will definitely want to view the video below to see how the doily is assembled.  Second, you can make a card with the sweet rolled flowers (I’m over the moon about these little romantic flowers).  Lastly, third, you can make a card with the Folded Dahlia.  Oh, and by the way, the panel that is included this month, cut twice, makes the perfect A2 card base. You’re welcome (wink!!)

Inspiration for Dahlia Dimensional Doily

As you might imagine, I keep a sketchbook of all the things I want. Let me just say upfront the I have wanted spiral flowers for more than two years and finally, I have them.  In fact, I tested a lot of spiral flowers (ones with jagged edges, ones with scalloped edges) and the home of my heart is in this flower because it’s soooooooo easy.  I did add a score line so that you could bend the edges over easily.  What a treasure these are!  Think about it – instead of a bow on a gift – rolled flowers!  You control the overall size by how tightly you wind them.  As a result, you get flowers what every size you want! You can even get itty bitty ones by clipping off some of the tail, giving you less to wind.  Yes, I know, I’m gushing over these….

Today on the inspiration video, see how the dies go together.  Learn what to cut and how to assemble the Dahlia Doily.  Oh, and you’ll also see how easy it is to curl the sweet romantic spiral flowers.

This die set makes a unique rounded motif with four interacting pieces that create four leaves of a Dahlia.  If you are not the type that likes anything interactive, no worries – just make a flower from the petal die.  I love all of the possibilities and dimension that this combination of dies provides.  There is something for every kind of crafter here…

I loved using the panels to create an A2-sized gatefold card.  On the inside, I simply added a layer of vellum over top of the die cuts for a dreamy look.

Finally, the month would not be complete without a box to top it all off.  The filigree panel makes this the perfect size for a gift box or a box to give A2-sized cards in.  All in all, the set includes so many options to make a variety of cards and gifts!  Sweeties, please have fun with this one!

Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Collection - Stained Glass Floral Bouquet - more details at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37025
It’s a miracle that little painted shards of glass can come together to create such beauty!!  The intriguing lure of Stained Glass has inspired artisans from around the world to try their hand at shuffling colors and shuffling shards of glass to create something lovely to gaze upon.  Today we are introducing the newest Amazing Paper Grace collection called Stained Glass Floral Bouquet, created for Spellbinders.

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Inspiration

I always wanted to do stained glass with real glass!  Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?  Now it’s easy to create with paper!  It’s amazing how you can give the same outline to a hand full of different artists and each will come up with a totally different look.

Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Collection - Stained Glass Floral Bouquet - more details at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37025

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection

The Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection is made up of 7 different die sets.  They are sized for layering and include small designs all the way up to A7 designs with different frames that can make both A2 and A7 designs.  The collection boasts shadow dies for each set so that whenever you don’t want a multicolor design, you can layer your “die-cut leading” onto one color.  The hallmark of the collection is a sweet stained glass flower and shadow in almost every set.  As a result, that gives you a background die and a central motif for each set.

Attention “technique junkies” this collection is sweetly serenading you to try your favorite technique with the leading and the shards.

Here are ours:

  1. Fill each opening with a different color paper and add Glossy Accents.
  2. Ink on a hombre background before resetting your shards.
  3. Add a smidge of color in each opening with a Copic Marker.
  4. Use a different color leading – white, black, gold, silver.
  5. Build up tall leading with 4 layers and adhesive in between each.

For my project today, I’ve made two cards.  For the first, I’ve done traditional stained glass which emphasizes the leading.  It was a perfect opportunity to create some ink blends.  Once the ink was laid down on the paper, I then cut with the die.  I just love bringing romantic color to these motifs!!

For my second card, I went with two colors to keep things simple.  If you are pressed for time, this creates a fabulous look without any coloring!

Designers Tip: For an ink blended ombre, it’s easiest to create your ombre on flat paper then diecut  from the flat paper.
