Amazing Paper Grace February 2021 Die of the Month | Bella Diamante

Good morning sweet friends.  Today I’m revealing a new Die of the Month!  The word that comes to mind is romantic.  It is sweetly elegant and is classically Amazing Paper Grace.  Today, welcome the  Amazing Paper Grace February 2021 Die of the Month – Bella Diamante.  As always, this A7 sized medley of dies is full of rims and smaller A2 sized pieces so that you have the best of both worlds.

Some links may be affiliate links, buying products through these links generates a commission at no cost to you.

For my first sample, I wanted a sweet pink composition.  It’s so classic and lends itself to any sentiment you choose to put inside.  This one is for a little young lady in my life, so I adorned with the whimsical flower in the set.  I simply wet the flower and burnished the petals to give them dimension.

Inspiration for Bella Diamante

Believe it or not, the inspiration for this die was a book cover pressed in gold.  It had four decorative corners and I loved how it implied a diamond in the center.  The symmetry on this die will make it useful for flaps, boxes, and other inspiration you’ll see throughout the month.  Since I don’t have any diamonds in my stash – I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to add one.  I love the room it gives for a sentiment.


Today on the inspiration video, I’ll show you how to make a card using Bella Diamante:

Many have asked about the adhesive used in the video.  It’s one of my favorite new products by 3L and it makes my life easy because the thin cut strips fit into the tiniest areas ever.  I’m providing a  link because so many have asked:

Bella Diamante Samples

I love a landscape-oriented card and Bella Diamante effortlessly turns onto its side for a lovely card.

As always, I try to design so that the elements can be used for a box.  After all, we are gift-givers and most of the time the card comes with a token.  I love having that token appear in a matching box.  The lid here is made with the “shadow” piece and you can easily see how all of the different rims are used for embellishment.

Coming Up

Do you love making boxes, paper flowers or using your dies in unexpected ways?  Then you need to stop by and visit us at the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Encouragement Facebook Group   Me and the Creative Team post over 10 new tutorials each month showing you creative new ways to use the dies as well as tutorials on flower making.

The Creative Team always has a blog hop to show you their take on the new Bella Diamante.


It has been a busy month for me and I hope to share some good news soon!!  I hope you are all well and safe!

    Hello –

    My question is: How does one mail a card with beautiful bows and 3D effects?

    Thank you!ReplyCancel

    This die continues your elegant sophisticated style I love and I adore the unexpected from you too – typewriter is a fav! I also appreciate your keeping this site available and wish the tutorials you mention that are on Facebook would be available via YouTube too. (One can wish; hate missing this information.) I stumbled on your site; fell in love; and have been a member of the DOMAPG since its inception. Hope you are having fun; stay safe.ReplyCancel

      Hi Mary, I thank you for your kind words every month. I offer something different on each social media area to thank the users that live there. I’m not a huge fan of Facebook, but my users group is a haven that I sincerely love. It is a place of encouragement and kindness. Even if you don’t like FB I hope you’ll consider just visiting the group. There are 12 or 13 of us and not everyone who does the tutorials has youTube. Lots of great tutorials are there. We do most of our Die of the Month tutorials on our blogs.

      Mary, you are one of our favs – thanks so much for your neverending kindness!ReplyCancel

    Hi. The Amazing Paper Grace dies are beautiful but we can’t purchase them in New Zealand. Just wondering if you could advise me on how to order them.



    • Becca FeekenFebruary 7, 2021 - 9:58 pm

      Hi Glenda,

      There is a new retailer in New Zealand! I don’t know her name but if message Spellbinders, they will point you in the right direction.ReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca,
    All these projects are absolutely gorgeous! In your video you cut a really narrow foam tape from a sheet (1/16”?). Where can we get it? I made quite a few sleighs at Christmas and that would have been really handy. Can’t wait to see all the inspiration in store for us from your design team!
    Love & blessings,

  • Becca FeekenFebruary 7, 2021 - 10:02 pm

    Sandy, thank you for asking. This product is one of my all time favorites products. I’ve dreamed of these strips for a long time!
    They are quite thin and fit in the tiniest of areas. You can get them here:

    I can not wait to receive this die. I will make all sorts of cards with this one. I just signed up for the group on facebook. I want to see what else can be done. I have been following you for years and just love how you inspire crafters. I thank God for the Gift he has given you. Isn’t He just “Amazing”ReplyCancel
