Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Graceful Damask - see full supply list at
Good morning sweet friends!   Tickled to be peeking in today and wanted to let you know that I haven’t forgotten about our winners and will be caught up with Day of Giving prizes soon – I’m quite behind.  All hands on decks, I have not had a spare minute in the background getting samples made, make and takes created and tested as well as the decorations for my display area.  If it seems quiet here, that’s why.  No worries, I’ll be back and have big plans for 2017.  Are you with me?


Today I’m giving away another of the cards made with Graceful Borders but it is done in the conventional way.  I’ve taken Spellbinders Graceful Damask and mirrored it vertically on my card and added a sentiment.  That’s it.  A tiny update – these dies are now available on the Spellbinders website :-)

    Such a beautiful card Becca! Every card you make is breathtaking. My plan is to try not making all my card in a 5×7 shape but to try new formats, styles, folds. I’m excited about my new challenge!ReplyCancel

  • Doreen RitchieJanuary 13, 2017 - 11:19 am

    Wow, wow, wow. This card is stunning!! Not that I’m surprised at its beauty because all your cards are so gorgeous. I’ve not decided yet what I’m going to do new in 2017 since I haven’t had much spare time to think but I’m sure there will be something around the corner. I may not be able to get access to your blog for the next six weeks since I will be away but I’ll look in whenever I can. Good luck at CHA – I so wish I could be there. Best wishes.

    How do you come up with something new over and over again? You are amazing and so are the cards you design. Thank you for sharing your talent with us less fortunate but are inspired by your work.ReplyCancel

  • TheresaJanuary 13, 2017 - 11:27 am

    Still seeking our “Not for Profit” status, we’re are in the early stages of receiving funds. At this time, I’m happy to say that we have helped Team De-Feet Cancer reach $32,000 through the Pan Mass Challenge and the Jimmy Fund, the arm of Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA which processes the fund raising.

    So happy and thankful for that, I have still not been able to draw a salary or even pay for the supplies used to make cards.

    In 2017, I hope to find more room for my crafting supplies. Additionally, I hope to able to draw even a small salary.

    I am a one woman show. I keep making cards, send them out, maintain a web-page and do all the marketing to get orders. Because there are no extra funds to draw upon, I can’t afford to hire helpers.

    It’s a big wish for 2017. As a retired person, I wish I had thought of this earlier in my career.

    Thank you for you tutorials, I absolutely love your designs. I have also ordered some of your dies from Spellbinders. You are an amazingly talented woman.
    Thanks for sharing your gift.ReplyCancel

  • Mary EstherJanuary 13, 2017 - 11:27 am

    Another stunning card, Becca!

    I need to learn to balance my life/time to allow some time for crafting. I miss my creative outlets of making cards and quilling.ReplyCancel

  • NADINE ILLINGWORTHJanuary 13, 2017 - 11:34 am

    Just got your frame making die. Having so much fun with it. Watched your video which is brill. Getting to grip with how to leave the frame so gives square for the sentiment in the middle. Saves so much time and paper. Think it is the best die yet and never leaves my desk.
    todays card is beautiful. Well done BeccaReplyCancel

  • Clare WJanuary 13, 2017 - 11:34 am

    Hi Becca. Fab card. I have this die so will be giving this a go. Who knows what I will learn this year. I’d like to learn to tie Bows like you. Happy weekend.ReplyCancel

  • RaquelJanuary 13, 2017 - 11:41 am

    What a stunning beautiful card. Becca your creations are always so amazing. I also wanted to share some news sometime back I had asked for prayers as my daughter in law was pregnant and she was having some hard times carrying the babies. Well after some hard struggles she had an emergency C Section as she was in danger. After a long time with the decision she delivered a boy and a girl on November 30th. Since Amelia June was under 5 pounds she was in the Special Care Unit and Austin Joe was 5 pounds. Mama was being checked and we are pleased and thankful they are doing great. My daughter in law is such a little trooper and through the whole ordeal she still was caring and loving with everyone. (I would have been screaming-HA!) Thank you for all that prayed for my daughter in law and the babies. Our 2016 year ended with such wonderful blessings. I am praying that 2017 will bring blessings and love to you Becca and all your followers of your blog. I can’t tell you how I have shed tears of joy and thanked God for all He does for all of us.

    I guess this year I will be sewing and I would like to learn how to paint. I will continue to make cards and be inspired by you Becca and all that comment on your blog. Happy New Year and lots of blessings and love. RaquelReplyCancel

  • Karen M. RothJanuary 13, 2017 - 1:52 pm

    This card is so lovely. I could really use one like this about now, I am scheduled to have a Biopsy in my breast.

    Lord willing, This year I am looking to learn how to organize in a way that really works for myself and my needs and my messy hubby. Then I am planning to expand my knowledge of Crochet Stitches.ReplyCancel

  • Gin K.January 13, 2017 - 1:56 pm

    What a beautiful card! This year I am going to try to learn paper quilling. I have never done anything like that and my adult daughter is interested in it so I thought it might be a way that we could learn a new art craft together and have fun!

    Beautiful and simple card today. Love the color.
    So glad to see Spellbinder website now has your newest creations and ordered the 6 x 6 frame maker. Should be on its way. Got a couple from Craft & Create when you were in the UK.
    What I really want to learn to do in 2017 is not a technique but to clean off my desk after I work and keep my area organized. Wish me luck.

    Gorgeous card using a simple design that looks complicated!
    I DO want to know where you get all your jewels, etc., that you put on your ribbons! Can’t find anything like them anywhere. Now if Spellbinders put out a side line of jewels that you designed…..

  • ToniJanuary 13, 2017 - 3:06 pm

    I plan to learn to stamp and heat emboss this year. That’s at the top of my goals along with learning to focus on completing one card at a time and stop second guessing my self thinking it never good enough. Please keep me in your prayers s 2016 was a hard year.ReplyCancel

    What a gorgeous creation becca! I love the soft colors and ideas using
    the new dies. They are so workable as I have seen for myself with the ones I just purchased.
    I am trying to learn how to watercolor with different mediums but it is proving difficult.
    It looks so easy til you get in there are start. But hopefully some level of acceptance will
    be gratifying to me.ReplyCancel

  • Bette SJanuary 13, 2017 - 4:52 pm

    Such a beautiful card! I just love the way you make use of the dies. I think learning how to pair the dies, like you do, will be something to work on this year. My problem? My group makes A2 cards and using the dies, makes larger cards.But they are oh, so beautiful. You are an amazing demmonstrator and that you for sharing your rare talent with us mere mortals!!ReplyCancel

  • Mickey M.January 13, 2017 - 6:33 pm

    I would like to learn Becca’s gift of combining dies and using them in new ways. Sometimes even when she blogs about how she put something together, I can’t quite”see” it. I probably need to see the individual pieces before they have been so skillfully assembled.ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn in E~TownJanuary 13, 2017 - 6:52 pm

    What a lovely card!!! Oh Becca I so fall in love with each and every card you post and am equally inspired by your blog post, you are such an inspiration. I look forward to your blog everyday.
    At the top of my 2017 to do list is to try and make each family member, 7 of them, an heirloom quilt, (a quilt for them to have forever and to remember me by) a big project, but I figure if it’s a the top I’ll always be thinking and working towards it, who knows maybe within 5 yrs I’ll have accomplished it.
    Happy New Year!!!ReplyCancel

This year I WILL learn how to use my Cameo and Scan N Cut machines. I’m cleaning my craft desk off after making all my Christmas and birthday card this year. Just in time to start my Valentine cards!ReplyCancel

    Can’t wait to hear about your experience at CHA and all the surprises you have for us this year. I’m with you for sure!

    Top of my crafting list is learning to use my die cutting machine. I waited so long to get one and since I purchased it, I haven’t had time to sit and play. I get excited thinking about all the possibilities and you are such a big part of that!

    Love and blessings,

    Hi Becca, I have been following you for, what, maybe 5 years now. Very rarely write but just thought I would pop in today and wish you well. I am so happy for you and all your success. When I first started following you I would tell my husband, this lady on the internet is so talented , I bet she will have her own tv show someday. Well, it looks like you are going to make my predictions come true. Loved watching you on Create and Craft. You are so precious. Just keep on being your own sweet self, love your family and most of all keep God first and foremost. I know you will. : ) Always wanted to win a card from you. I would certainly treasure it. I would hang it on my wall in my craft room and smile whenever I looked at it. Maybe someday my name will get pulled out of the internet hat….. Ha-Ha… Until then I will just keep on watching you climb that ladder of success. God bless always…DeniceReplyCancel

  • Norah McPheeJanuary 14, 2017 - 6:52 am

    Good afternoon dear Becca,
    I fell in love with your new dies when you were across here in the UK and can’t wait until i am able to use them( choked with the flu since Christmas so haven’t got the strength to turn my GC handle). I think my favourite out of them all is the frame maker as i have so many border dies that this will just make it so easy for me to get the right angle to make frames. I like frames around a card but with shaky hands, some times they are not as true as i would like them to be, so your frame maker will change that for me as i hate when i can’t get things precise( yeh iam one of those nightmare people that have to measure everything down to the last millimetre of accuracy). So for me, this year will hopefully be being able to be more precise so that i am happy with the end look. I know it’s about the fun, but my nature just won’t let me just make do and mend, which spoils the fun of making some wonderful things. I can’t wait to see what you have in line this year flower, but what i can do is send hugs and hopes that it is a fabulous year for you,

    Hi Becca,
    Totally understand…I worked at CHA two years awhile back and know what it takes to get all ready!!! Have FUN! Your card is lovely, as usual…still enjoying the precious card you sent me! Top on my 2017 list is to get organized in the new one bedroom apartment in the Retirement Community I am moving to in February – downsizing has been a real CHALLENGE…now, hope it will all fit – LOL! Able to let go now of the house I designed and the 5 1/2 step at a time!!!
    Paper Hugs,

    Hi Becca, A stunning card, I love the borders.
    I’m hoping to ‘get into’ some ‘painty’ and ‘messy’ crafting, also to keep trying colouring.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,

    I am drooling here looking at your beautiful cards and waiting to make all of the beautiful border dies cards with the order of dies from CreatandCraft. However, my husband and I have been land locked since December 21st in Texas waiting for the weather to clear so he can fly us back to New Jersey. It has been 3 weeks and I think the dogs wish we were gone so things would be back to their normal. The first thing I will do is pick up the mail so that I can see my new dies and then hold them in my hands and make a wish. My wish would be to sell our home, move to Texas, build a Craft Studio (after my husband build a hanger for his plane)make hundreds of cards and make new friends. So happy your year has started with a bang! You have much to do!
    Hugs and HAPPY NEW YEAR! SaraReplyCancel

    What a sweet card! The damask die is probably my favorite of your recent release! I’m looking forward to ordering it soon!ReplyCancel

    This card is beautiful. One thing that I would like to learn in 2017 is sponging.

    I like the simplicity and elegance of this card. I can envision it being used for many different occasions. My goal for this year is to venture into water coloring. I’ve watched enough You Tube shows on ‘how to’ and am just about ready to give it a try. Wish me luck.ReplyCancel

  • Nancy LudwigJanuary 15, 2017 - 5:10 am

    I would have to say that pergamano/parchment crafts is at the top of my list for 2017. I always look forward to seeing your cards and designs.ReplyCancel

  • Angelique VelaJanuary 15, 2017 - 5:33 am

    What a gorgeous card. You never fail to captivate me with your eye for the lovely. At the top of my learning list, this year, is art journalling and not far behind that is pergamano. The piReplyCancel

    I love your new border dies Becca, they add so much to a card to make it simple and elegant. The top of my list this year is to get more proficient in using watercolors. I think there is so much to do with it for a background or just those special dies to be spruced up. Being new to watercolors or markers will take some major reading and YouTube time.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card love the die your color choice and layout are perfect!ReplyCancel

  • D.Ann CJanuary 16, 2017 - 12:37 am

    So beautiful!! I must get cracking on using my dies!!
    I want to learn to do one of those pop up box cards and some watercolor techniques this year.ReplyCancel

  • AnneJanuary 16, 2017 - 6:00 am

    To be able to make even one card as beautiful and stunning as yours would be my goal for 2017.ReplyCancel

    I am so enjoying the cards you are creating with your new border dies. I’m excited to try this gorgeous card! Of course, I’d love to win it. lol!

    I would like to learn to craft flowers from foamiran foam. It’s very thin fan that can be die cut and heated to shape the petals. I recently ordered the foam so I now need to try my hand at creating a flower. I love that these flowers are more durable than paper so mailing them as part of a handmade card will be less problematic.

    Have a wonderful day, Becca!ReplyCancel

    This is such a fabulous card, Becca. I love the Damask die and the pink is gorgeous.
    We’ve been in the US for a few weeks and I started to yearn for my sewing machine! I generally use it for practical purposes – making curtains, repairs etc – but I want to do some machine embroidery. I have the threads, just never got round to using them!
