Well, it had to happen…I made a big goof and because so many people asked me about this card, I thought I would make the correction in its own post.  Yes, it draws attention to my silly goof but I want to catch you before you get to a dead end, like Katherine. (By the way, if you left a question in the question parking lot on the post where I share these cards, the answer should be there for you).

Here’s what Katherine said:
Hi Becca,
Love all your cards….You always give great inspiration.  I have a question that pertains to the Christmas cards you recently made using the Adorning Labels 25 and Labels 25 however you said you also used Classic Ovals Large. . . I found this to be much too small to fit the sentiments on them . . . could you have possibly used the Grand Ovals LF-110? I hope to hear back from you because I am stuck.

Thanks Becca for your help…
Katherine Hill

Here’s what I said:
gulp….
Well, it seems that when I wasn’t looking my Grand Oval #1 sneaked out and took up residence in the Classic Ovals LG Case and was posing as Classic Ovals LG #6.  Had I been on my toes, I would have spotted the imposter immediately because there is no such thing as Classic Ovals LG #6. Even I had to click on the links to prove it to myself! (Dramatic music here) Say it isn’t so . . . Well the nerve of that poser!!   I’ve ordered everyone back in their cases where they belong and I feel horrible!  I’ve edited my post —–>http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/introducing-amazing-paper-grace-elegant-christmas-swirls/  so that you can see the changes and make a note of them.

Here’s the bottom line:
Instead of Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG, you will need Spellbinders Grand Ovals.  Don’t have it?  An alternative pairing is the oval from Spellbinders 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy with Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  So sorry for the goof  :-)

Happy Friday sweet friends, you bless me so and I hope you have a glorious weekend!

Sympathy Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Sympathy Vintage Labels and Spellbinders Elegant Ovals - Blog: www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hi there friends, I can’t believe how fast this week is passing by!  Each day has brought a surprise blessing and it’s made me want to stay in my pajamas, put on the coffee pot, turn on the movies and do nothing but create.  Don’t you love that feeling?  Lately, more and more of my cards have been hitting the post office and that makes me very happy. Todays’ card is a sympathy card.  We have to have them and honestly I dread sending them, but I’d rather be prepared to support a grieving friend.  This goes to my stash but I’ll definitely reach for this new set from JustRite Papercraft called Sympathy Vintage Labels Eight and Nine for similar occasions.

The beautiful focal image was created with Tombow markers and the old technique where you color the stamp with your marker, huff on it, then stamp it (or lightly spritz it).  I haven’t done that in ages and I’d encourage you to try this any time you want to pick different areas to color on your stamp.  No boo-boos because if you don’t get the coverage you want, simply pick up some of the color from the marker by scribbling on acetate and picking the color up with a water loaded watercolor brush.  That’s what I did with the centers of the flowers – I wanted a darker rose.  The flower wreath was cut out using the oval from Spellbinders 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy and backed with the delicate scallops from Spellbinders Elegant Ovals.  In between the layers I sandwiched the pointed filigree from Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments.

So Grateful for You Card

Thank You Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Vintage Labels Eight and Spellbinders Antique Corner
Good morning sweet friends!  This week JustRite Papercraft  has been showing new releases for the month of August so I created a gratitude card using the new Vintage Labels Nine along with Celebration Sentiments and Ironworks Vintage Labels Eight.  Although Ironworks is a background stamp, I love the detail and stamped it right beside the sentiment for some interest.   One of my background layers is made from dies – something I love to do – this one is Spellbinders Antique Corner.  I built up a couple of layers of dies to create a focal point using Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty Five then Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor followed by Vintage Labels Nine.

Rummaging though my flowers I found these beautiful roses.  The are exactly the right shade of pink – I say that because there are so many shades and you won’t believe how much time I spend looking for exactly the right shade of pink :-)   Anywho, instructions on the way!!

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Score a cream 5-1/2″ x 11 panel at 5-1/2″ and fold in half to create a card base.
  2. Cut a panel 5″ x 5″ and emboss with Framed Petite Labels.  Emboss from each end to accommodate full panel.
  3. Adhere directly to a craft panel cut to 5-1/8″ x 5-1/8″ – adhere to card base using double layers of foam tape.
  4. Cut/emboss four Antique Corners, apply double layers of foam tape on seams – adhere to card base.
  5. Cut/emboss Majestic Labels Twenty Five and second largest motif from Valiant Honor (snip bar holding decorative horizontal piece at top of Valiant Honor and flip it behind Majestic Labels Twenty Five), attach to card base with foam tape.
  6. Cut/emboss Vintage Labels Nine, stamp with sentiment from Ironworks Vintage Labels Eight and Celebration Sentiments, then adhere to card base with foam tape.
  7. Add bow, flowers and pearls.
CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED 
Rubber Stamps: JustRite PapercraftCelebration Sentiments, Ironworks Vintage Labels Eight
Craft Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Solar White – 80 lb, Kraft Paper
