Thank you, thank you, thank you for the kind review of Romancing the Swirl!  The two debut blog hops last week were a blast and a wonderful way to get an idea of what you like.  Today I’m sharing a new card featuring detail embossing and winners are announced below for the folks who left comments on one of the six blogs giving away an Amazing Paper Grace Die Template from one of these releases – your choice from the Vintage Elegance Collection, the Graceful Borders Collection, the Venise Lace Collection, the Chantilly Lace Collection, or the 3d Vignettes Collection.

My Card Today – Detail Embossing

Those who have been around die-cutting for a long time will remember when detail embossing with a non-cut die was more prevalent. It’s a nice alternative, subtle and elegant and I’m sporting it on my card today.  For this card, I decided to use A2 Corner Cotillion as an embossed piece instead of a die cut piece.

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Amazing Paper Grace Romancing the Swirl by Spellbinders - A2 Corner Cotillion - see full supply list at where Becca shows Detail Embossing.
For this particular card, I started with a 5-1/2″ by 7-1/2″ card base.  I layered it with a panel matted in gold and topped with design paper from DCWV Meet Me in Paris.  That panel is followed by a panel embossed using A2 Corner Cotillion where I cut an oval aperture in the center.  I inserted a smaller oval in the opening so that you could see the design paper underneath.  I snagged a new Quietfire Design Sentiment to fill the oval called You Can Do Anything.  A bow across the entire card cuts it up so that the length isn’t quite so overwhelming :-)

We typically think to cut a die but I’m always surprised how beautiful detail embossing is.  Try it at least once with each large die because I think you’ll be pleased how it automatically extends your options!

Introducing Romancing the Swirl by Becca Feeken
Hi there Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace here.  We’re having another Spellbinders blog hop to celebrate new collections and today I’m so tickled to present Romancing the Swirl!  Six dies are being given away by me and my Creative Team by leaving a comment on the post at this link HERE which kicked off on May 14.  There are additional opportunities to win today, by hopping through from link to link with the incredible designers posting creations today.   If you have come from the  Spellbinders Blog, you are in the right place and I’ll link you to your next location below.

The Romancing the Swirl Collection is chock full of calligraphic swirls and elegant, classic dreamy motifs that will be in style for years to come.  Meant to be used together across the collection, every die will be in character with another as they are combined.  Well rounded with squares, circles, ovals, and rectangles – each combination provides the ability to create a layering masterpiece adorned with the extra embellishments in the collection.  The die set that I’m using today is  Sweetheart Swirl – one of my very favorites!!

I put together a quick card by stacking three of the Sweetheart Swirl frames to create a deep frame.  The bow across cinches it all and adds in that romantic feel as well as using a vellum printed paper for a soft and ethereal feel.

For the tiniest details, I added one of the embellishment pieces from Swirl Tags to the top of my oval.  It’s just the little things – the love is in the details!!  These are both such lovely dies to work with and you will be amazed at the wonderful samples that are coming up from the rest of the blog hop participants.

    Becca, your card is GORGEOUS!!!! (As always! ;) ) But, HOW did you layer the 3 layers of the Oval Swirl? They’re SO DELICATE & I wonder HOW you layered them without showing all the adhesive/dimensionals? You didn’t layer like others usually do, I noticed. They’re spaced off of each other! SUCH A NICE DETAIL! I DO LOVE the old world feel your cards give. Of a day gone by…. They give off an air of hope, I think! LOOOVE the other little details you’ve added to, Becca! The cameo, the little gold swirl at the top, the ribbon! QUITE ELEGANT! ;)ReplyCancel

Introducing Romancing the Swirl Collection by Amazing Paper Grace

Welcome sweet friends, today we are introducing my new dies – you’ve seen this picture before when I peeked it in January and now I’m thrilled to say this is out and is lovely to work with.  Welcome to the Romancing the Swirl Collection – you can take a quick peek at the entire collection ——-> HERE.

About Romancing the Swirl Collection
The Romancing the Swirl Collection by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders is chock full of calligraphic swirls and elegant, classic dreamy motifs that will be in style for years to come.  Meant to be used together across the collection, every die will be in character with another as they are combined.  Well rounded with squares, circles, ovals, and rectangles – each combination provides the ability to create a layering masterpiece adorned with the extra embellishments in the collection.

Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  We’ll be sharing creations for weeks to come so you have a continuous source of inspiration!  We are listing all of the creative team below so that you don’t miss a beat on the hop.  Don’t forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments – one from each blog.  The prize details are at the bottom of my post.  So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:

My Projects Today:

First up is S5 – 365 – Sweetheart Swirl 

Introducing Romancing the Swirl Collection by Amazing Paper Grace

As I mentioned. I’ve shown you this card before but it’s truly one of my favorite and I’ve made it many times.  Sweetheart Swirl is a magnificent oval that seems to accommodate just about anything.  It is regal and so very romantic.

Second up is S4-927 – Trefoil Crest and S4-930 – Curvy Labels

Introducing Romancing the Swirl Collection by Amazing Paper Grace

Introducing Romancing the Swirl Collection by Amazing Paper Grace

For my sample I’m using Trefoil Crest!  It’s a delightful embellishment that I’ve nestled with Curvy Labels and they seem like a very likely pair.   I love that the shape is open which allows for a sentiment or another die cut!

    You know…… I just love seeing all the amazing things you come up with. You have given me so much inspiration. So, so happy for all your success. I have been with you from almost the beginning. I remember seeing your cards for the first time and my eyes did a double take. I didn’t know it was possible to make a card into such a masterpiece. In fact, you were the very first person I knew who made cards. Wow, such a long time ago. Anyway, I just wanted to congratulate you and let you know how much you are appreciated. May God continue to bless you with much happiness. Many hugs sent your way. Denice with a “c”ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, You are quite amazing with your designs…just breathtaking.

    I would love to know where you found the image for the first post – the bride in the veil. It’s absolutely beautiful and I’d love to find it.

    Thank you in advance.ReplyCancel

  • SuzzieQMay 14, 2018 - 11:19 am

    I think everyone loves this card design on yours. So very, very romantic. My favorite die set of this Romancing the Swirl Collection is this “Sweetheart Swirl”. My first glance of it got my mind thinking of possiblities on using this lovely die set.ReplyCancel

  • SandyMay 14, 2018 - 1:04 pm

    So exciting, Becca, to see all these dies in action! I know I think this about every collection, but I think this may be your most popular collection, yet. Classic, elegant styling every one and they’re Romancing the Swirl – how perfect is that?
    Love & blessings, SandyReplyCancel

    • Sandy ArtmanMay 14, 2018 - 2:07 pm

      Further to my previous comments, after viewing all the sites of your creative team, I think the Swirl Background is my favorite. With previous blog hops I’ve been dismayed not to be able to “win” the featured dies (& I love how everyone featured the packaged die in their post!) but there have been availability limitations to getting some of the past collection, plus I see how previous dies would be such great companions to ones I have now that I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to expand my collection! You and your team have done a super job introducing these wonderful dies.ReplyCancel

  • Crafty CruiserMay 14, 2018 - 1:09 pm

    Wow, Becca. This collection is truly amazing and once again, your design team have produced truly beautiful projects. It is very difficult to choose a favourite but sweetheart swirl must be up there amongst them. Having said that, I think they are all my favourites!! Both your cards are, as always, so so lovely.
