Rose Garden Promise Inspiration

I was bursting with inspiration for this 5 x 7 card front.  It is so reminiscent of stained glass, which I love and it also rivals my love for roses.  ‘God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December,’ a quote by James M Barrie.  It is precisely that quote that inspired me to think of roses at the end of the year. It has much to do with the promise of an approaching spring, buds bursting forward, and the gift of hope.  As one who loves rituals, I finished off 2019 with a die template that featured roses and decided it was worthwhile to pay them homage at the end of 2020.”

Isn’t it only fitting to go forward with hope for the future and for new and worthwhile things that will break through.  From the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team, let this be a beautiful end to your year; we hope that through making, it brings with it the bonus of lovely memories.

My Project Today using Rose Garden Promise

I so wanted to cut the roses apart and use the motifs on my card and matching box.  So I cut the die from gold mirrored cardstock and took a couple of seconds to snip each of the motifs.  The smaller motif seemed perfect for a card and I used the larger motif for the top of my box.

Designer Tip:  When snipping the box, be sure to include the outside rim of the die instead of trimming from the inlay.  You’ll have less snipping to do that way.

    I have been a member of the APGDOM since it started and not one regret. Anyone who has crafted with me loves your elegant, sophisticated dies! And you never fail to inspire or surprise me with these dies. I still am playing with the telephone and typewriter – such a surprise but I love them. I think my favorites will always be the cabinet dies. I have such fun with them and wish for a valentine/anniversary one. This die is lovely and reminds me of my mother and grandmother who had a tradition of three roses – I had that in my wedding bouquet and three roses in a mini cake topper bouquet. Thanks for the memories, Becca.

    My plan is to make a gift card holder with this set, lighted picture frame, & a Christmas diorama for a small nutcracker in center frame. (Maybe even a spinner card!) Wish be luck…

    Have a Merry Christmas!ReplyCancel

Oh my, it has been nearly a month since I’ve spoken here!  I looked up to see that it is time for an update.  Time flies when you are in the middle of planning your holiday but I’m tickled to return to share a new Die of the Month.  As you know, designing a die that releases every month keeps me on my toes thinking about beautiful dies that invoke different techniques and outcomes.  Today I’m pleased to introduce the Amazing Paper Grace December  2020 Die of the Month – Rose Garden Promise.

Inspiration for Rose Garden Promise

Last month we swooped in just in time to give you a lovely Christmas die that you could still create with to prepare something before Christmas.  This month, we’re looking at turning the corner and going into a new year.  I don’t know about you, but it’s a time where hope for the upcoming year catches my thoughts.  Just barely into winter, my thoughts always turn to Roses in December.  Last year in December the die template was a lovely rose template and again this year, I’m tickled to keep up with the tradition and give you roses again.

Once I sat down to play with this die and make samples, my head filled with so many ideas about how to put together a card.

Amazing Paper Grace December 2020 Die of the Month - Rose Garden Promise - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=36742

I think the gold and cream is a classic but also loved the black for the punch of color.  This is truly a 10 minute card!!

Amazing Paper Grace December 2020 Die of the Month - Rose Garden Promise - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=36742

I was excited to pull out my Copic Markers and flick on some faint color to barely color the roses.

Amazing Paper Grace December 2020 Die of the Month - Rose Garden Promise - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=36742

After I was done flicking on color, I overlaid the entire arrangement with the white outline.  This is the same concept I show in the video.

Amazing Paper Grace December 2020 Die of the Month - Rose Garden Promise - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=36742

This version was a no-brainer by dabbing on some watercolor.  If I can do this anyone can do this because I’m a classic overthinker.  Well, I didn’t have to think about this, just color!!

Amazing Paper Grace December 2020 Die of the Month - Rose Garden Promise - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=36742

I created the background by bumping my watercolor brush against my hand so that purposefully, droplets would fall.  Since I tend to be accident prone, I have to admit that it’s satisfying doing that on purpose.  Afterwards, I stacked four of the outlines adhering each with white glue.  The end result gives a lot of depth and makes the die cut framing very sturdy.

That’s it for me today!  I hope you like Rose Garden Promise it was so fun for me to play with and I hope you do too.  In the meantime, please think about joining me and the Creative Team where we are sharing lots of tutorials in a place that we can chat and answer questions –  the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Encouragement Facebook Group. 

Coming Up

Speaking of the Creative Team, as always you know we have something up our sleeves.  We’ll be back on December 4, 2020 for more inspiration with Rose Garden Promise!

Bless you all as we find ourselves perpetually in a new place every month.  Holidays during the coronavirus can be daunting but I think that armed with technology and hope, the holidays will turn out okay.  Shopping online and being together via Skype isn’t sad, it’s a triumph.  I applaud our collective spirit and hope that no matter what you savor the coming holiday.

Amazing Paper Grace November 2020 Die of the Month - Pop Up 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=36721
If you haven’t already jumped into Christmas preparations, are you ready to sleigh it?  Today we are sharing the Amazing Paper Grace November 2020 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh.  This one is a little bit different because it folds down flat for mailing as do all the dies in the 3D Vignette lines.

Poinsettia Sleigh Details

What better for Christmas than a Christmas Sleigh?  This one is 3D and I can think of oh, so many ways to use it.  This die can be used as flat detail on a 2D surface but transforms into a 3D showpiece so easily that we’re happy you will have both options.  I love to create high end dies that double as a decoration piece in November of each year.  Let’s just call it icing on the cake for the holidays.  It’s really a satisfying venture to grab a cup of coffee and sit down to put it together as it is to set it out on the table.

Today we want to inspire you to think of different combinations using the Poinsettia Sleigh.  Here’s what we had in mind:

  1. Table Center Piece
  2. Table Setting Favor
  3. Filled with Candy and Goodies
  4. Part of a Wonderland Menagerie
  5. Flat 2D on the front of a card

    In the comments let us know how you think it should be used.

 

There are 21 dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh

My Project Today using the Pop Up 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh

For my project today, I pulled together a couple of quick money cards for Christmas.  I assembled the sleigh as normal and nestled a little box behind the first sleigh so that my gift card or my money bills could slip into.

Designer Tip:  Stacking and slightly offsetting two of the sleighs creates the illusion of depth without an excessive amount of bulk.  In between sleighs stack 3 or four pieces of adhesive foam.
