Spellbinders May 16th 2018 Blog Hop

Introducing Romancing the Swirl by Becca Feeken
Hi there Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace here.  We’re having another Spellbinders blog hop to celebrate new collections and today I’m so tickled to present Romancing the Swirl!  Six dies are being given away by me and my Creative Team by leaving a comment on the post at this link HERE which kicked off on May 14.  There are additional opportunities to win today, by hopping through from link to link with the incredible designers posting creations today.   If you have come from the  Spellbinders Blog, you are in the right place and I’ll link you to your next location below.

The Romancing the Swirl Collection is chock full of calligraphic swirls and elegant, classic dreamy motifs that will be in style for years to come.  Meant to be used together across the collection, every die will be in character with another as they are combined.  Well rounded with squares, circles, ovals, and rectangles – each combination provides the ability to create a layering masterpiece adorned with the extra embellishments in the collection.  The die set that I’m using today is  Sweetheart Swirl – one of my very favorites!!

I put together a quick card by stacking three of the Sweetheart Swirl frames to create a deep frame.  The bow across cinches it all and adds in that romantic feel as well as using a vellum printed paper for a soft and ethereal feel.

For the tiniest details, I added one of the embellishment pieces from Swirl Tags to the top of my oval.  It’s just the little things – the love is in the details!!  These are both such lovely dies to work with and you will be amazed at the wonderful samples that are coming up from the rest of the blog hop participants.

  • Becky GreenMay 17, 2018 - 2:53 pm

    Becca, your card is GORGEOUS!!!! (As always! ;) ) But, HOW did you layer the 3 layers of the Oval Swirl? They’re SO DELICATE & I wonder HOW you layered them without showing all the adhesive/dimensionals? You didn’t layer like others usually do, I noticed. They’re spaced off of each other! SUCH A NICE DETAIL! I DO LOVE the old world feel your cards give. Of a day gone by…. They give off an air of hope, I think! LOOOVE the other little details you’ve added to, Becca! The cameo, the little gold swirl at the top, the ribbon! QUITE ELEGANT! ;)ReplyCancel
