Happy Birthday – Stacked Sentiments

Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Justrite Papercraft Stacking Sentiment and Spellbinders Victorian Medallion Three - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hi friends, wow, this has been a busy week!  This week also marks a new release for JustRite Papercraft and today we’re sharing creations made with Stacking Sentiments and A2 Woodgrained Upcycled Frame Background Stamp.   I zeroed in on the Stacking Sentiments and found there are so many ways to change them around to get a tall sentiment to your liking.  For my card today I created a diecut background using 9 of the center pieces from Spellbinders Victorian Medallion Three.  To embellish I used Spellbinders Pierced Squares and added a smaller frame using Spellbinders Classic Squares LGSpellbinders Classic Squares SM.   Spellbinders 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace was tall enough to accommodate two of the stacked sentiments.  I finished off with flowers made from Spellbinders Urban Blooms and embellished with Spellbinders Foliage Flourish. This card is a little larger than my norm, at 6-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ and will call for a custom envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.

I love adding detail and textures with dies and it was so easy with the 9 cut pieces.  Keep in mind that this, like my other designs, can be simplified.  These are only suggestions but it’s very likely you already have squares and other basics like flourishes in your stash.  I just have to say that this flower has become a staple in my repertoire and I make lots of them at the same time – you’ll see them popping up all over the place and many of you have asked for a tutorial – I’ll be adding that tutorial soon!!

    I’m always in awe of your ability to put intricate, beautiful dies together, Becca. I always go to the links for the Accessories you list to see which products you used, and how you used them. In particular, this card had me wondering about the “flourish-y” panel on the back of your card (Victorian Medallion Three). Simply gorgeous!ReplyCancel

    Another gorgeous card…and while I like the pastel platform you usually use, I love this pop of deeper purple on the card. Lovely!ReplyCancel

  • Clare WMarch 5, 2015 - 10:33 am

    Low this Becca. I marvel at how you combine so many different dies and make some thing so divine. You are a talent. I am working on Easter cards at the moment although I’ve just made a card for my friend who is getting a puppy this weekend, a border collie called Meg so I’ve been stamping paw prints! But what sentiment to use caused a bit of thinking about…. In the end I settled for Hello Meg. Not very original but it does what it says on the tin! Thanks for sharingReplyCancel

    Love how you have created such a beautiful background using the medallion three die. Just made such a yummalicious background!!! Thanks for sharing your creative eye with us. You are the “Queen” of die manipulation and such a fabulous asset to the Spellbinder world Becca. I know that I would not have turned into such a spellbinder junkie over the years, if it had not been for you sharing the oh so many ways to use each new die that comes out. And, I am positive that I am not the only one, but that there are a hundred plus behind me that also swear by Spellbinder dies due to your creativeness in using these dies. Warm hugs and much appreciation from this loyal long time follower.

    Hi Becca,

    I was wondering what you had used for the beautiful decorative background, so lacy looking. Wonderful elements you have added, I love the beads in the center of the flowers, so pretty. Loving the sentiments too.

    Love & Hugs

    Thumbs-up on that card and double thumbs-up on a tutorial for that flower! I have been trying to recreate that flower and getting NOWHERE…. Becca, take pity on us and do that tutorial right away! Well, at least as soon as possible… Or, maybe, as soon as you can? Or, right after all the other zillions of things we know you have to do? Well, at least, when you get a chance? Yah… I really need that flower in my repertoire and I will give you all the credit for its gorgeousness. Sigh…..ReplyCancel

    So pretty Becca and I love the colors.
