Introducing Amazing Paper Grace The Gilded Age by Becca Feeken using GLP-128 Lace Frippery and GLP-121 Gilded Trimmings for details see
Hi there, Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace here.  Today we’re having a blog hop to showcase my new Glimmer Plate collection – The Gilded Age.  I love creating ensembles and wanted to be sure to include borders in this collection – Lace Frippery and Gilded Trimmings are already on my favorites list.  As I designed them, I thought of all the possibilities of pulling older dies from your stash to embellish with.  These are calling out to embellish a bag or box.  In fact, these projects were very quick to make!!

The new foils are absolutely delicious and I’ll warn you, it’s very hard to choose.  I landed on GLF-024 – Polished Brass.  It’s lighter than gold and has a lovely sparkle.  I simply took the Favorably Simple Gift Bag Box and before it was assembled I added border to each of the pieces.   Once assembled, the pattern makes it pretty and cohesive!!

The bag is going to be filled with delectable chocolates and the card will go to a friend that is having a rough time.  I reached for one of my very favorite sentiments from Quietfire Design called Worry.

Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for March 2019 - Spun Blessings Oval Die - Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using this Spellbinders Die can be found at 34810
Sweet friends, I’m back to share a little card I had in my mind using the March Die of the Month and also in celebrational of International Women’s Month.   When you look at the die, it’s easy to think that it is “just” a background die, right.  Wrong :-)  I designed it to be cut up so that all the parts and pieces can be used for embellishment.  We’ve had fun all month slicing and dicing the die up and today I’m coming to you with a shaped card.

Shaped Cards

I’ve always loved shaped cards because of their uniqueness.  I achieved this look by cutting two panels but one of the panels is cut with a hinge.  You can see my video for that technique ——–> HERE.  The center column in the design is perfect for a sentiment so I cut an additional one in pink.  That leaves a sweet little space in the back for a little note – like thank you.

The hurricane saga continues for me.  I’ve not been able to move back home yet, but I think (hope) all the remaining answers will come soon.  It’s been the most unexpected journey for me.  Even though it has been difficult, I believe with all my heart that there is a lesson in this journey.  I think it was an event to wake me up; I see it as a journey of letting go of the old and bravely searching for the new.  At times I’ve been reluctant to look ahead because it’s easy to get into a comfort zone, it’s my cocoon of safety.  In fact, for the last six months I’ve felt vulnerable    I have to remind myself over and over that “que sera, sera.”  I’m where I’m supposed to be right now – comfortable or not.  I thank you so much for continuing to check up on me.

    Hi Becca,
    I was just wondering a week or so ago how you were making out with your house and the insurance. They sure don’t mind taking your money when the premium comes due, but then kinda a different story when it omes to payout. God Bless and continue to keep your chin up!!
    I got my die last week and have not had a chance to play much as I am doing therapy 3 days a week for the lumph0dema. Just started las week. Camping this weekend and I didn’t bring any crafting with me. Will check it out on Monday night and see what happens. Congrats to winners!!
    Hugs to you.

I can’t imagine what you’re going through. Thank the Lord, you have your family & friends to lean on. Some don’t even have that!

    Your card is MAGNIFICENT! LOVE how you created a LOVELY SHAPED CARD! ;) I WILL HAVE TO look at this die even closer! LOL I ALWAYS LOVE how you add the little touches of femininity/ old world to your cards with the cameo, pearls & whatever else you find, Becca! JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!!

    Hi Becca! I am sure I am one of many of your fans and want to let you know that I just love, love, love, your dies!! Did I tell you and I just love , love, love your dies?? Please continue to create such beautiful pieces so that we, your fans, can enjoy them while we create too. One question I have is that I was wondering if you have ever thought of making a die of a baby girl shoe (bootie) and one for a baby boy. I tried creating one off of a patterns I found on the web but they just didn’t have that finished look when I was done. The idea was a cute one but kind of messy to undertake.I think having a die would make it much easier, what do you think? Thank you for everything you have contributed to crafting and I look forward to what you’ll be showing us next.ReplyCancel

    Where are you living now?? I live in Crestview and thank goodness that horrible hurricane missed us. Best of luck in getting back into your home real soon. I am sure you miss it immensely and just want your life back to normal. Best of luck and thanks for all your creative inspiration. I have been watching your videos for years and have learned a lot. I am an avid scrapper and card maker and have gotten many comments on my cards for my friends and family using your dies and ideas. I remember watching your videos back when Martha Stewart punches were the BIG THING!! I have all of her corner punch sets, and other punch sets she came out with. I don’t use them as often as I used to because I like DIES better these days. Thanks again and best of luck getting back into your house ASAP.ReplyCancel

      I happened to see your response and just felt led to comment. If we believe in God we can not believe in luck. Either you believe God is in charge or luck is in charge. Wishing good luck is a phrase I grew up with and I was really burdened to stop using it and to gently remind others this. I pass this on out of love and I hope it is received this way.
      God bless…DeniceReplyCancel

        Amen. Nothing is just luck. All good things are blessings from God.

    That is a beautiful card, Becca!! Light and airy with a charming sentiment. Thank you for the inspiration!
    I’ve been keeping you and so many in 850 in my prayers following Michael. The devastation is unimaginable. The recovery long and slow and frustrating.
    May God bless you richly!ReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanMarch 25, 2019 - 6:32 pm

    Dear, Becca,
    Thank you for continuing to encourage us to make hinged cards. I just love them, I watch your videos and think, “I could do that!” and yet I haven’t given it a try. I think that’s gonna change. This die not only does the ‘heavy lifting’ – it does it all (well, maybe doesn’t tie gorgeous bows!-wink). Uncomplicated elegance!
    I appreciate the update on your displacement. Seeing you looking so fantastic and marveling at your unbounded creativity, it’s easy to forget the difficult journey you’ve had these last 6 months. You certainly are modeling for us what “amazing grace” looks like. I hope you are strengthened by the thoughts and prayers of all of us who love and care about you.
    Love & blessings,

  • miluMarch 27, 2019 - 12:26 pm

    lovely sentiment, love the pearls and of course the die
    You are a blessing to many Becca!ReplyCancel

    Hi love all you make. I am blessed to have so many of your beautiful dies. I have sent a message to Spellbinders and yourself, requesting some visual creations using the set Gold Majesty Circles. #S4-409. I would be so grateful if you could post anything from this set. I check your pages often.
    Have a blessed day and. Thank you. Celia DixonReplyCancel

Introducing Amazing Paper Grace The Gilded Age by Becca Feeken using GLP-119 Gilded Leaves Shaped Panel for details see
Greetings glimmeristas!    Today, we are launching The Gilded Age – a small glimmer collection with some exquisite plates.  Join us as we introduce five new Glimmer Sets (some with dies) and 1 brand new Die Set that has matching glimmer plates. We’ve eased into the beautiful habit of building card layers and layering frames with foil and the Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System.   These metal plates are just like stamps and can be used for letterpress and deep embossing as well as transferring gorgeous foils to many items.  So, welcome to The Gilded Age Collection – I’d love the share the inspiration for the collection below.

Inspiration for The Gilded Age

I have a romantic fascination with days gone by and the beautiful, fragile relics that survive to create our memories. The Gilded Age is a look back to a time when beautiful things were all around and each item had a story tied to it.  Fineries were hard earned and treasured, garnered with much pride and bathed with love and sentimental value.  Whether in art or clothes or architecture, the timeless glamour of the era thankfully punctuates our lives today.
It was an age where dreamers knew no bounds in decorating and inventing, paving the way for exquisite art, extravagant embellishment and a level of grandeur that defies simplicity.   We’re fortunate that traces of the era live on.  One of our present day methods of gilding comes in the way of foiling. Once only able to be carried out at prints shops, it was an expensive process that signaled exceptional taste; your eyes can’t help but be drawn to it.
In the collection, I’ve curated a couple of looks inspired by a ladies stationary desk.  A desk where she might sit a compose “Thank You” notes with care and attention to detail using her coveted fineries of the day.  Each plate in the collection delivers a mark that can be considered hallmarks of fine penmanship and papers.  I’m convinced that each of us has a mark, an indelible mark – the tools are there, calling out for us to use them.

My Projects For Today:

I’m tickled to introduce GLP-119 Gilded Leaves Shaped Panel.  It contains both dies and plates.

It is a glimmer plate that three of us are introducing.  We will each show you a different technique for displaying these sweet swirls.  My representation is as a “Shaped Panel”.

Here is what the plates actually look like:

I so loved working with this set because of the multiple ways it can be used!!  I’m using it one way, and both Kate and Judy on the link list below are using it in a totally different way.  My hope was that it would be used as a ‘shaped panel’ and it’s a bit unique.  For my first card here’s what I did:

  • I laid out the dies for reference, then laid the plates into place.
  • Before glimmering – I removed the dies as they were just for reference.
  • After glimmering, I then die cut the panel.
  • For the shadow layer, I simply moved my dies 1/4″ further apart giving me a larger diecut.

I love the depth that the shadow gives and having it all in one panel give a unique yet polished look!!

    Becca congratulations on yet another beautiful set of creations that I have been watching. I must admit I wanted to see what would be announced today and started looking at 1 AM this morning. Yes, I admit I was excited as excited as when a child at Christmas! Thanks again for this gift and the joy from using them.

I haven’t tried Glimmer yet but look forward to treating myself in the future.ReplyCancel

    Becca, seeing how you used the Gilded Leaves Glimmer Die has helped me fall in love with it! AS ALWAYS, SUCH AN ELEGANT CARD!!! LOVE the little swirl you added in one of the opposite corners as well. I am ALWAYS IN AWE!!! A FABULOUS HOP!!! EVERYONE did a WONDERFUL JOB featuring this collection! LOOOVE Judy’s little journals! I’ve been wanting to try the stamping with these glimmer plates! I DO have a Glimmer Machine–got it for Christmas! “My favorite” is hard to choose, because I want them ALLL!!! LOL My husband knows it too! My favorite way to use these dies, is to use them on a card front, with a lined image that I color. Usually flowers. The foiling looks like it is weaving in & out of the florals I do, like a ribbon! I’m ALWAYS trying to think of how to use my Glimmer Machine on every card I make now! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these Glimmer Dies!!! ;)I am working on trying to figure out HOW to use them on your most intricate dies that I have…… I think a wedding card is coming up too….. ;)ReplyCancel
