Amazing Paper Grace March 2019 Die of the Month - Spun Blessings Oval Die Set
Do you ever suffer from blank page syndrome?  Or you clear your schedule and your table and sit down to make a card, create your card base and bam – your mind goes blank.  That’s why we’re here!  We love bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month and today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop for March.  Since we all see things differently, it’s our aim to show you how each of us approached designing with this die and the lovely pieces that are a part of it.  Our hope is that you snag a picture or two for your inspiration file and they come in handy next time you sit down to create.  Our list of links at the bottom of the post leads to all the inspiration.

Amazing Paper Grace March 2019 Die of the Month - Spun Blessings Oval Die Set

The six pieces that make up Spun Blessings Oval combine to make a card front die, perfect for a background or you can creatively use all of the inlays for either accents or borders.  You may have noticed, it’s a big die but the better to make alternative designs like the little baskets that help to create an ensemble.

My Card Today:

Amazing Paper Grace March 2019 Die of the Month - Spun Blessings Oval Die Set

For my card today I decided to highlight one of the border inlays.  I cut both of them in a line so that they ran the length of the card and then threaded ribbon through.  I love the look of the threaded ribbon!  On top of that, I added a bow.

I also added the rounded part of the die as an embellishment underneath the sentiment.  For the sentiment, I added a strip of paper cut by hand that has a swallow-tailed end.    Easy peasy!!

Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team Member - Kate Skonieczna
Hey sweet crafties, I’m back from a lovely retreat with some news!!  Tomorrow (3/10/19) we will be having our monthly blog hop with inspiration using the Die of the month AND next Sunday (3/17/19) the Creative Team and I will be introducing a new collection with a blog hop.  But today an introduction is in order!  I’m so blessed to have a small, close group of friends I work with who bring my dies to life.  This past fall we were so lucky to have a Guest Designer with us who is joining our group and I couldn’t be more excited.

Welcome Kate Skonieczna

Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team Member - Kate Skonieczna

Kate has an exceptional style and her cards have unique layerings.  Her eye to detail and beautiful use of dies is inspiring!   I’ve assembled some of her creations for this post.  Here’s a little from Kate.

My name is Kate. I’m from Poland but I have lived in Glasgow in Scotland since 2015.  I have struggled with the Glaswegian accent.  It’s hard, the pronunciation is different from English,  the accent is completely different, even some words are different. I have 2 daughters but they live in Poland.

I run my own business. It’s an advertising and printing company. Among other things I have a laser cutting machine where I can cut my own chipboard embellishments and use it on my cards.

I started making cards 3 years ago. They were so simple and plain. I only had a few dies. Over the course of time I have bought more and more stuff but from the very beginning, my first love has been Spellbinders.  I’m very happy to be a member of Becca’s team.

Here are some of Kate’s lovely projects:

    Love your cards. Know what you mean about the different accents of the Scottish people.

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 www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p= 34697
Good morning lovelies!  It’s the beginning of a new month, so I’m back to introduce a new die of the month, the Amazing Paper Grace March 2019 Die of the Month – Spun Blessings Oval.   Die of the Month is an opportunity for me to create a multi-purpose die that will create many items and works well with that you have in your stash.  For new subscribers, if you are not familiar with the Die of the Month here’s a post that will give you all the details.

Inspiration for this Month’s Die

This month’s die has 6 pieces.  It is a grand oval that will be good for layering but I’m in love with the inlaid pieces as well.  Using them independently as inlays will give a lot of texture to your cards.  Paired with basic shapes in your stash, these will punctuate rectangles, will give great texture to strips, circles and ovals.  Of course all alone, it’s a layering background but then again, it works marvelously into 3D projects.

You know that I love creating ensembles.  In other words, I love being able to make something that matches the card I’m going to send.  Today I thought I’d share some sweet little gift bags that are perfect to go with a card made with the Spun Blessings Oval:

For my first project I knew that I wanted a little bag to light up my ensemble and this is as easy as it gets.  The video above will show you how to make it and it makes the perfect addition to anything you make with the Spun Blessings Oval or even the small inlays that can be used alone on a card.

The dimension of the bag are: 4-3/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ tall by 1’1/2″ deep.

I just feel like light radiates off the spirals cut by the die when it’s backed by gold, so that’s what I did when I made my card!  This makes an easy card by using the entire die and then I added several panels on top.

For those who like smaller cards, you’ll be able to take the round inlay spiral motifs and simply cut them directly into a card.

On this project I simply cut off the top and bottom of my panel to get the rounded edges – I love them!  I can see using this motif time and time again.

That’s my shares for you with the March 2019 Die of the Month!  Pop over to the Spellbinders Blog to ——>THIS POST <——– to have a look at many more pictures of the Spun Blessing Oval Die.

If you are already a member or have purchased any of the Die of the Month Dies, I hope you’ll leave a review of the die on the Club Page.  If you like the direction I’m going with these dies, please leave a comment on the Spellbinders Blog Post so that I can continue to create in the same vein.  As always, if you have a constructive comment on how the dies work for you, please leave it – I read all of these and we discuss them as I plan additional designs.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I really appreciate it!!  Oh, and I’m curious, in the comments tell me how many years you have been making cards.  I have a personal bet going on with a friend that I’ll tell you about in an upcoming post about how long we think people are cardmakers :-)

    Hi Becca, I have not posted in quite a while. Just wanted to extend my heartfelt happiness for your continued success. It is such a Blessing to see God shine His light on such a special person. No matter what was lost last year in the storm, God has His hands on your life and the Blessings He has in store for you, you will not be able to hold in two or many hands.ReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenMarch 2, 2019 - 8:58 am

      Gladys, thank you for sharing your heart!! The storm and all it had to bring are a part of my journey. I know there is a lesson buried there somewhere so I’m faithfully waiting for the answer. If it is anything like the past, the answer doesn’t come all at once, it settles in gradually. I’m optimistic and grateful to have a path leading to acceptance. Your prayer is very special and is making me smile today.ReplyCancel

  • DottieMarch 2, 2019 - 7:42 am

    Stunning card! It seems anything based around ovals grab my attention first , they are so versatile.
    Marches die is gorgeous but only as you wielded it. I have been making cards since I started out with my tiny daughters when they were 4 and 5 which was 46 years ago. Yes, long before there were Dies and inks, fancy paper or even an interest in it as a hobby. We cut out of balsa wood and glued. I drew and the girls colored. We used everything around us, pressed dried leaves, and arborvitae sprigs. We watched as this whole craft evolved until there are more ink choices out there than we know what to do with. So fun and so invigorating. Thanks for asking Becca!ReplyCancel

  • Ann RobbinsMarch 2, 2019 - 7:58 am

    Becca
    It is almost 13 years now for me. Following you since 2008. And buying most all of your dies.
    Love the club and joined as soon as it started. Great dies, please continue.

  • Crafty CruiserMarch 2, 2019 - 8:10 am

    Absolutely stunning! Everything about this die oozes beauty. Another winner!
    I’m a mere novice at card making compared to others on your blog, at approaching 20 years!
    I cringe at the quality of the first cards I used to make but with the onset of stamps, inks and of more recent times (albeit about 15 years) cutting dies – which are getting even better, as your designs show – my cards have certainly looked more professional over recent years.

    I want to make sure you realize that you not only give joy to the community of purchasers/supporters but also the receivers of items created. I wish I could show you the faces of delight, joy and awe when they open a card or gift created with your dies. So a heartfelt “THANK YOU Becca” and wishes for joy and happiness in your life….ReplyCancel

    I thought I bought the first stamps I saw and that was about 22 years ago. I didn’t know about them 60 years ago or I might have been with the person who had stamped 60 years ago. I wonder if she would be willing to show some of those old stamps. I would love to see some, and even own some.ReplyCancel

    Goodness Becca, I pray you never run out of ideas and I love every thing you have done. I have many dies of yours and I think each will complement this die that I simply love. I have been card making around 20 years since I retired and love doing it and have been following you for a long time as I stumbled onto you and have not left. Love being with APG and look forward to each month’s surprise die. Each one seems more gorgeous than the last, if that is possible.

    I’ve been making cards since the mid 70’s, so….around 44 years or so. I started out making and selling gift card enclosures, and then moved to full size cards. It has become a passion, and I love getting inspiration from your site! Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Carol RossouwMarch 2, 2019 - 1:46 pm

    This is another gorgeous die set and your pretty ensemble is amazing! So wish it were possible for us to get these dies here where I live. I’ve always made cards since I was little, but have only begun using the wonderful tools to make really professional looking cards since 2013. Still can’t get over the joy of running my cardstock through my die cutting machine and then pulling out the paper to see the beauty of the die cut that pops out. It was the beautiful Spellbinders dies and your stunning cards that got me hooked!ReplyCancel

  • Denice with a " c "March 2, 2019 - 4:42 pm

    Hi Becca, Wow, I had to do some thinking to try to remember how long I had the card making bug. I am going to guess over 10 years. I had been serious about trying but then I ran across your blog and my jaw just dropped at how beautiful your card creations were. That was I guess maybe 2 years or so before John passed. Sooo…….. how ever long that was would be about how long I have been making or trying to make (LOL) cards. Before that I was majorly into miniature dollhouses and miniature room boxes. I still adore miniatures but I had to choose one or the other because I only have so much space here. LOL… Card making and scrap booking won out. Know any one who might like to purchase a dollhouse…. LOL …. Alrighty, there you go… now who wins the bet…? : )ReplyCancel

    These little gift bags are so beautiful, and the matching card is just exquisite!! Anyone who gets a card from you is beyond lucky.
    As for years making cards, I can’t really remember when I didn’t make cards! I would say that I’ve been making handmade cards on a regular basis for about 15-20 years. I can’t remember the last time I bought a card..so that’s a long timeReplyCancel

    I love your dies and your beautiful things you make with them. I wish you would some dies that are for A2 cards instead of so big. Just a thought.ReplyCancel

    I’ve been making cards for about 16 years. Since my now 18 yo was a toddler. I have blog posts going back to 2004 so that’s about right.ReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca,
    What anticipation there is at the first of every month! So exciting to see your new creations revealed. The middle gift bag above with the sweet little rose buds has totally captivated my heart. I so appreciate what a commitment this is for you to present something new every month. The outpouring of your love and creativity leaves me in awe (& totally delighted)!
    I have been a life-long lover of greeting cards. For years, I spent hours in Hallmark stores and eventually worked in one. About 40 years ago I decided to make my own Christmas cards and that first step started a journey that seems, at times, to have a life of its own. Everything about it is soul satisfying.
    Love & blessings,
    SandyReplyCancel

    Beautiful Becca! Just love these bags!
    I probably made my first card when I was 5 or 6, so 6 decades ago, but the hobby really took off a couple of decades ago. Soooo long!
    Hugs
