Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders S4-733 Braided Grace, Spellbinders SDS-054 Giving Occasions - full supply list at
Good Morning friends!!  Thank you so much for the warm welcome extended to my new creative team!  Don’t forget, you can scroll back to the Creative Team Blog Hop post and leave a comment to be in to possibly win an Amazing Paper Grace die of your choice – winners will be posted on May 9th.  In the mean time I’m popping in quickly to share the Day of Giving Friday card for today.

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders S4-733 Braided Grace, Spellbinders SDS-054 Giving Occasions - full supply list at
This card is built on a base that is 6-1/2″x 6-1/2″.  After building up a couple of  matted layers, I took one of my new dies, Spellbinders S4-733 Braided Grace and cut two.  Placed together, I offset one so that the motif would have 8 evenly spaced points.  I used the center dotted motif in the interior then stamped the sentiment from Spellbinders SDS-054 Giving Occasions onto the cut tag in the set.  I arched it to fit inside the dotted motif to give it a tiny bit of dimension.  Ah and , the final piece is a pre-tied bow to give everything just a little bit of glamour!

For new readers, every Friday it’s my pleasure to give away a card.   The card goes to a randomly picked reader (worldwide) who leaves a comment in our conversation. Want to know more about Day of Giving, here’s a link to my FAQ’s just check out #11. You can check the list of winners HERE!   For your comment: I’ve come to know that everyone has a little bit of ‘collector’ in them.  What do you collect?

Stamps:  Spellbinders SDS-054 Giving Occasions
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest 80lb Smooth (Natural White), Gold and Cream from my stash, Gold Poster Board – Hobby Lobby
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories:   Spellbinders S4-733 Braided GraceSpellbinders SDS-054 Giving Occasions, Paper Source Satin Ribbon, The Paper Studio – Pearls

    Beautiful as always Becca, I love the gold and cream parchment. It was such a thrill to meet you in person at the workshop last night. Both my husband and my daughter thought the journals and box we made were beautiful, and laughed at how excited I was to have the chance to learn directly from you. I hope you come back to Canada again. I know all the ladies there enjoyed it. The warmth and caring you share through this blog is truly genuine, and was so evident in person. Thank you.ReplyCancel

  • Dianne Schlegel (the kardlady)May 5, 2017 - 11:00 am

    Checked out each of the APG creative team members – the dream team – and liked what I saw Becca – each has their own particular style and together the 5 of you make a winning combination! As to your question – I collect quotations, quips and puns – been doing it since my church secretary days 25 years ago. I also collect music boxes and ceramic birds. My husband built me shelves around the four sides our favorite sitting room 12″ from the ceiling where I display both amidst vines and a few miniature birdhouses. These inspire me as does your creations! Thank you for your friendship! Dianne (the kardlady)ReplyCancel

  • Christine RayMay 5, 2017 - 11:08 am

    Good morning Becca! Beautiful card as always! I’ve always been a collector of craft materials – sewing, embroidery, cross stitch, scrapbooking, cards…love it all!ReplyCancel

  • The KardladyMay 5, 2017 - 11:10 am

    Forgot to comment on your new creation above – as usual, it is lovely – I’ve only started with a few of your dies and am enjoying the discovery immensely. Last time I was to my DR for a check up I told him I wanted 20 more healthy years and was that too much to ask at 79! He just winked at me – I’m taking it as a yes! I have too many more cards to create with you as my teacher!ReplyCancel

  • Dalyce MangumMay 5, 2017 - 11:20 am

  • Jan CastleMay 5, 2017 - 11:35 am

    Hi Becca, your card is elegant and was fun to make I’m sure!!! I love hummingbirds and have been able to keep a few items since my move to a one-bedroom apartment…did have to downsize a lot so many or my hummer items are in someone else’s house. HOwEVER, I did bring all my dies, a good portion of my stamps, and a lot of my crafting – so would have to say I collect ‘crafting items’ – LOL!!!!
    Paper Hugs,

  • Sandy ArtmanMay 5, 2017 - 11:43 am

    Happy Friday, Becca,
    Your blog hop was so fun this week! Each person’s style resonates to your sensibilities but is distinctly different so I think they will bring depth and dimension to all the collaborative possibilities. Can’t wait to see them!
    Speaking of your dies, I don’t think I carefully read the “Affiliate Links” section of your blog before today and it’s a critical piece in supporting your work. I will make it a point to use your BLOGS as the portal to purchasing your dies and am using this comment to encourage others to do the same.
    My crafting supplies can LOOK like a collection but what I do collect are crystal butterfly pins.
    Love & blessings,

  • Kay McBrideMay 5, 2017 - 11:47 am

    Beautiful card!! What do I collect??? I dont get to get new things as much now but I still have what I collected over the years. Two things that I loved to collect was anything to do with Santa. And I love Disney, and Mickey Minnie and the 101 Dalmatian were the main but I have Lots of ornaments, plates, globes, and whatever else I came across . My favorite item is my 101 Dalmatian watch!

  • Sara AlfordMay 5, 2017 - 11:48 am

    Hello Becca,

    You are so prolific and moving a bit faster than I can keep pace with you. Another beautiful card and an exquisite die. Thank you for sharing again and again. Love the creative team you have brought together simply for our delight and challenge.

    As I am packing up my home for a move, I have come across so may “how to” books, that…I would have to say…I must collect them. Ever since I was a child I’ve wanted to learn about things and how to make things. My later years have provided just the time and ease for me to do anything and everything I want to do.
    Hugs, SaraReplyCancel

  • Lori SloanMay 5, 2017 - 12:47 pm

    Another beautiful masterpiece! Just gorgeous! I have been collecting from an early age. My mother and I collected antique dolls. Although she is gone now, I still have some lovely dolls and still belong to my doll club. I also collect many other things…antique/vintage: clothing, purses, handkerchiefs & lace. Girlie stuff! Also since 3 of my dogs are Papillons, I also collect butterflies. Almost all of my cards have a butterfly somewhere on them. Happy Cinco de Mayo!ReplyCancel

  • Cathie WearyMay 5, 2017 - 1:00 pm

    As always, another gorgeous card. I’m an voracious reader, when I’m not busy making cards, and these books become my friends. I just can’t bring myself to give them away when I’m finished with them. Hence I have many bookcases filled with books.ReplyCancel

    What a great way to start my day with a gorgeous card that you’ve created. This always starts my creative fingers twitching and foaming at the bit to keep some open time today so I can work on some cards too. I am enthralled and in love with dies. It’s fascinating how a piece of metal can carve out a thing of beauty that provides endless designs and dimension. My collection has grown by extensively and reigns as Queen of the craft room.ReplyCancel

    Once again Becca, simply stunning work! Since I found your blog, I have become a collector of Spellbinders dies! I had 1 “before Becca” that had never been opened. Since Becca, I am afraid to count how many, but they must be stored in 2 tubs! My Amazing Grace collection sits at the front of course! I also collect Flamingos—something bright, cheery and whimsical!ReplyCancel

  • Bette SMay 5, 2017 - 10:02 pm

    What an absolutely beautiful card! Just gorgeous! what do I collect? First and foremost is family genealogy and pictures. I’ve been working on my family’s genealogy and also my husbands for the past 50 years and still do not have all my questions answered. I find it interesting and rewarding. Then there are my stamping “stuff” – stamps, dies, punches, paper – you name it! And it includes lots of Spellbinder dies, especially yours, Becca. Love this card!!ReplyCancel

  • christiMay 5, 2017 - 10:09 pm

    gorgeous card. ok so today’s question is both easy and hard. craft wise I collect dies. mostly spellbinders but not solely. I started to get the dies months before I got the machine. everyone laughed at me. it was when a new machine was coming out every couple of months and I had just gotten stung by getting a cricut when I wasn’t ready for it. so I didn’t want to make that mistake again. I have gotten better about collecting. I have some pins and paperweights and david winter houses. I finally realized I had to stop collecting or start collecting storage buildings so I try not to add without subtracting now. some are just to cute to give up. ahhhh just too much!ReplyCancel

  • Peach LeeMay 5, 2017 - 10:13 pm

    I definitely collect Amazing Grace dies, advise, tutorials, and Quiet Fire stamps along with flowers, ribbons, and bling! With family belongings…I have collected memories, photos, etc., and am now giving them away at the right time in a vignette. Example, packaged my father’s veteran’s flag with pictures of his youth and from army. Sent package to one of my brothers to give to his son who has graduated college and is working and may get engaged soon. My brother is so happy and byproduct to pass on the stories that go with the flag and photos. My nephew has the same energy and exuberance and love his grandfather had towards people and the world. Fun to collect and give away so the item can gain new stories.ReplyCancel

    How I envy your ability to stack die cuts! Yours always look gorgeous; mind, not so much. I will keep at it ’til it starts to resemble something like the lovely creations you craft.

    Actually, I collect cards from designers I love. I have two of yours! And, I collect 1/4″ scale Front Porch miniatures. I go to an annual fund raising event that is a miniaturists dream! Three days of classes and camaraderie with ladies from all over the U.S. One of the classes each year is a quarter-scale front porch in a clear plastic photo box to hang on the wall. We’ve done a Victorian front porch, a Mountain Home front porch, a Campsite front porch, a Christmas Decorated front porch and others designed by Judy Jaynes and taught by Judy at the retreat. I also collect picture post cards and/or sketches that I can frame and hang from places we have travelled.

    Having things that hang up is best for me. I need ALL my other space for crafting supplies!!ReplyCancel

    Oh wow! Absolutely divine. Yet another die to add to the wish list :o)
    I collect anything to do with crafting….. I have paper that I just can’t bear to cut into – I just get it out and look at it, sighing! I have stamps that grow and grow in number – I know not how! My dies proliferate and I am such a collector that I am embarrassed by the fact that I have some of them, not only in duplicate, but also in triplicate because I have forgotten that I already own them! I think I could be the founder of a group for crafting addicts – you know – Crafters Anonymous!!! :o)

    Love how you offset the die like that! Really adds a lot of elegance! Also like the designer paper that you used behind it.
    What do I collect: When I was teaching, I used to collect old lunch boxes and use them to actually carry my lunches! My middle school students thought it was hilarious. I did too. My favorite was a Muppet Baby lunch box!ReplyCancel
