Day 14 – 30 Days of Giving and a New Card

Cardmaking Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design and Spellbinders Antique Corner -
Hi there friends, so I wanted to change up things just a teensy tiny bit and offer a new card  and oh, a crafting tip!  Also, this is the card that’s up for grabs!   The back story is that I simply needed to play at my desk, I pulled out one my favorite ever quotes from Quietfire Design called the And the Day Came.  I had this design in the back of my mind and it turned out better than I thought it would.  I’ve been cutting new dies too and shuffling them all over my desk – it’s a good feeling.  (Just leave a comment on this post and I’ll post the winner on the Giveaway page tomorrow.)

Cardmaking Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design and Spellbinders Antique Corner -
I used one of my all time favorite dies – Spellbinders Antique Corner – I have quite a few cards on the blog using this particular die template – and while you can see all the choices HERE, this time around I changed it up and made a rectangular card instead of square.  The size for this card is 5″ x 7-1/4″.  What I did different is I made three tiny snips in the die (see picture) so that I could slide it over the corner of my cardstock on the bottom four corners.  On the top, I ran the die through with two thicknesses (success depends on your machine and paper thickness) – just as I do in this Hinge Technique so that the two corners are connected (see picture).  Top front and top back are inserted into the snipped corners and the inside of the card is lined with the same pattered cardstock.  The pretty oval element that I threaded the sentiment though is called Spellbinders Victorian Tags Two.

Designer Tip:
Sometimes when you cut a die, especially the more intricate dies, tiny whiskers may be left behind.  No worries!  I simply grab my Tool-N-One with the Ball Tip Stylus Attachments and run some adhesive on my non-stick sheet, then run the ball on the end of the stylus over the adhesive to pick some up on the tool.  Now it’s as easy as running the stylus around the curve of the cut to whisk up a whisker; the adhesive picks it right up!Using the Tool N

post-header-bottomTomorrow I’ll be giving away a card that I promised to give away earlier this year.  I had to wait until I wrote down how to do the technique, so this one – that so many of you said you’d love to have, is going up on the block tomorrow and I couldn’t be happier.  I thought it might be a lovely way to mark the half way point on the 30 Days of Giving.  Be sure to stop by on Wednesday :-)

    Becca your talent is amazing. I can spot a Becca Feeken Card a mile away. True story, I was at a scrapbook/stamping convention where they had sample cards in the booth and they did not say who made the card. I was talking to the owner of the company and told her this one card was made by you. She began to argue with me and I stuck to my guns and stated it was one of your cards. After some checking, she agreed it was one of your samples.

    Becca you are an inspiration and I can only hope I can learn from your example.

    I Love Love Love your cards and I want all of them!!!ReplyCancel

    Love the clever ways you use the dies. Do you even have a “box” to think out of? Maybe when I retire I’ll have the time to be creative, so keep the ideas coming for those of us too tired to do it on our own.ReplyCancel

    Gorgeous card. I love how you used the corner die – what an inspiration you are. Thank for the Tool-n-One tip. Love that tool. My DH picked one up at the stamp show we attended over the weekend and said, “This looks like something you could use.” I said, “It is and I do.” He is an enabler when it comes to finding stuff at stamp stores or shows. He’ll say something like, “You’ll kick yourself later if you don’t get it now.” And he’s usually right.ReplyCancel

  • Judy BennettJuly 14, 2015 - 9:00 am

    Beautiful card Becca. I’ve learned so much from you, but one thing is the way to snip, cut, and tuck all or parts of decorative die cuts to add around the sentiment or center frame. I’ve gotten very creative with my scissors. :) Thank you.ReplyCancel

    Lovely card! You have inspired me to get my corner dies out and give your clipped corner die a try. Love the effect of placing your cover layer over and under on the corners on this card. Thanks for the tip about the adhesive on the ball end of the tool to remove those tiny whiskers. I will try this too. Watched your video on your hinge designs and I like them as well. And I will definitely give the hinge techniques a try. Thank you for sharing your cards and making videos for us visual people. Wishing you a wonderful day!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    It’s wonderful that the card came out even better than you had hoped; I love the every little detail of it, including the pearls on the tips of the ribbons and the the corners you used to frame it. Thank you for the tips, I will make the best of them. This card is a detail oriented girls dream come true.

    Have a blessed day,

    Squeal, I just love to read about your hints, tips & tricks. I am always learning something! Love your idea on snipping a few connectors to make an entirely new type of corner flourish! Now to get out my dies & see what I can think of….maybe I can think of something. Lol
    This is an excellent tip on removing those tiny little aggravating whisps of paper. Wish I had thought of it! They sure are annoying. And just when you go to adhere it to your paper, there’s another one that had been hiding! Grrr. Am going to try this one today!

These are my bibles to cardmaking. Never in my life have I followed or been a fan of anyone until you came along. I admire your work and have learned a lot just by trying to case your cards. Of course, my collection of dies is another testimony of my enthusiasm. Thank you for sharing your God’s given talent.ReplyCancel

  • Norah McPheeJuly 14, 2015 - 3:46 pm

    Good evening Becca,
    This is such a beautiful card Becca although my brain is being slow at working out how you made the top complete across the front and bac. I get the fold the card and cut it like I would for your usual filigree cards but this is just a corner that has to copy itself back to front as well as east to west at the same time? Will need to read again when I have my brain back in gear instead of it being away sight seeing and leaving the rest of the body at home. I love how you transform your ideas into reality and make such incredible works of art. Thank you Becca for making so many peoples day and cheering so many people up
    With love and crafty hugs
    Norah (Glenochil village, Scotland )ReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenJuly 15, 2015 - 7:05 am

      Norah, I think it is an optical illusion. The corner is mirrored front and back. That simply means for the top pieces to fold before cutting insuring your fold line is ‘inside’ and not laying across the the cut line. It will yield a double piece. Then you simply but your card front (left side) and card back (left side) into that double piece. You need two double pieces. The second double piece will take care of the right side of your card. Hope this makes sense :-)ReplyCancel

    So sorry for the really bad auto correct at the very start of my comment – of course it was suppose to read Dear Becca – not ‘Bec came’. Pls forgive me – I was so embarrassed to read that back! I really must check stuff before I hit the send button!!

    Thank you again Becca for your talents. I make my cards for several different occasions, Birthdays, anniversaries, sick. My cards are for anyone.It is funny, as I lost my AC Monday and when the workman came out he had to go into my scrapbooking room and commented on how pretty the cards are and what a lost art it was even to get a card, handmade or bought. He mentioned social media has really taken over the Happy Birthdays, Congratulations, etc. He acknowledged the time and love put in the cards and said he would love to have one someday. HMMM!!!! I see a thank you card coming up.ReplyCancel
