Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design - Worry, Spellbinders Isabella Frame and Spellbinders Francesca Label - full supply list and links at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=32315
Hi there sweet friends!  I’m sharing a new card today and also sharing the winner of the Venise Lace Die from this past weeks blog hop at the end of the post.  If you have been peeking in at my card making some time then you know that from way back, cream and gold is my go to color.  When I get a new set of dies, the first thing I do is make the cream and gold version and then dip my toes into some other combinations.  More often than not, what I’m really looking for when I’m playing is an alternate way to use the dies.  Today I turned Isabella Frame on point and wrapped the edges around a 3″ piece of card stock.  It almost makes it a totally different die.  :-)   To match that vertical feel I picked Francesca Label for a beautiful sentiment from Quietfire DesignWorry.   As always the sentiment speaks to me – this is one I love to pull out as a reminder.

Framed Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Bella Claire Border and Spellbinders Graceful Frame Maker Tool - see full supply list and links at www.amazingpapergrace.com/blog/?p=32283
Good morning and thanks for joining us!  We have a blog hop going on today and the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team spent the week creating with the Graceful Frame Maker.  We each picked a border from the Graceful Borders collection to work with and spun it into a mitered frame or mitered frame background for use on a card.   The Graceful Frame Maker is a die that will cut four miters to create a framed card  from borders, punched strips or tall dies – you can see a step by step tutorial —–> HERE and a video —-> HERE.

I’ll tell you a little bit about my card and will share a link list below so that you can see the creations of each person on the Creative Team as well as learn how to win a free Amazing Paper Grace Venise Lace Collection Die.

Recently I shared new dies with you from the Venise Lace Collection.  There’s a new border die in the collection called Bella Clair Border and I thought I’d give it a go with the Frame Maker Die.  Although it is a wide border, I was absolutely tickled with how it turned out — I thought it was pretty nifty for a card that uses only one die :-)

It went together so easy!  True story – when I have an intricate die, sometimes I’ll do a trial run with typewriter paper.  But today, I lined all four of these borders up, cut them once with the Frame Maker Die, and was done.  I just look at the result and it’s honestly hard to believe that it came from a straight border.  I can’t wait to have more time to try the Frame Maker with some of my 7″ tall card front dies that have unique edges.  I’m also going back through all my border dies and border punches.

The question I get so often is ‘how do you glue, secure and elevate the four pieces you get?’  Well, I get stealthy.  Simply turn your four pieces over and secure the joins on the miters with clear tape – anywhere you have a little bit of real estate.  Likewise, put little bits of foam tape (double decker) strategically where ever you have real estate.  To support the back of this die cut I used 16 small pieces of doubly stacked tape :-)  See, you’ve been framed!  And now here’s the hop information you’ll need:

    I had just purchased my die cutting machine when you introduced your Graceful Frame Maker collection, and thus became my very first dies. The Graceful Damask border is one of my favorites from that collection. The sky’s the limit in making frames from your Graceful Frame Maker – so innovative!

    Thanks so much for turning the piece over to show the foam tape attachment. So clever how the borders can make a wonderful background/frame. Like the others have said, hard to pick a favorite die.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful new design….along with a lovely example on how to use it! Also the words are lovely too! Thanks!ReplyCancel

    So pretty, Becca! The frame maker die makes other dies so versatile! I’d be hard pushed to choose a favourite as all your designs are so lovely!

Happy Friday sweet friends.  I’m smiling today because I have a card to share.  It was actually the inspiration for the Emmeline die.  It’s a long journey from inspiration to actual die but somewhere in my mind I’m already making cards and gifts with the ideas in my head when designing.  There’s no if’s ands or buts about it, I’m a lace addict.  I love it all, vintage, embroidered, bobbin, tatted – all.of.it.  My recent Venise Lace dies, are simply meant to mimic the feel of lace, in paper, and I was tickled to create this with the airy open feel and the scalloped floral background.

 Today I crafted a shaped card that is joined together by the hinge technique I demoed —-> here.  I framed the die using Hemstitch Rectangles – another fiber technique that renders square openings  in linens by pulling threads and bunching selected threads together.   The front is decorated with Cinch and Go Flowers II and has the stylings of hemstitch around the leaves.


This is the kind of card that I really don’t want to hide any of the airy transparency so instead of putting a huge sentiment on the front, it was perfect to put a tiny sentiment on a tiny tag using Graceful Tiny Tags Dies and Stamp Set.  This is one of my tricks with a showcase card – I minimize anything that can cover the beauty of the dies while putting a little tag front and center.  Here are other samples to show you what I mean – HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

I embellished the background with pearls – big surpise :-) and the interior card has another hemstitch panel to write a small quote, sentiment or even put a picture.

    Hi, Becca,
    Is this card gorgeous, or what?! I love lace and you really captured the ethereal essence by choosing white to form the lace and leaving it open. Using just a whisper of color on the flowers and leaves brought them to life. Satin ribbon and pearls – the perfect touch. Your card brought beauty into my day but it also brought a feeling of peace. Thank you!
    Love & blessings, SandyReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,
    I am surely not surprised that the Emmeline die is sold out! I know I sound like a broken record with each new series of dies you come out with but this is totally exquisite, lacy and devine!! Wondering if you have done a tutorial for the new flowers or did you do them the same way as Cinch and Go No. 1? Is this the Friday giveaway card???
    Hugs
    Ann RobbinsReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenJuly 10, 2017 - 11:31 am

      Hi there Ann, I did not do a tutorial for the flowers (partly because the ‘master flower makers’ are on the creative team and my attempts pale in comparison to their artful ways :-) But seriously, I don’t fuss with flowers – these are all done the same way as Cinch and Go No. 1. – the hole in the center is like training wheels for me. Perhaps I will do a new tutorial for all the sweeties here when I get caught up on some other tasks…ReplyCancel
