Exciting News with Amazing Paper Grace!

I’m so excited to announce that I’m working with Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace! You remember that I left my previous job in February for some much needed RnR. But then this came onto my radar…

Becca was looking for a Creative Team Coordinator. I’m stepping into that role temporarily (more details on this on her blog soon), and then working with her as a Social Media Strategist.

I’ve known Becca since my time at Spellbinders. I always love seeing her at the AFCI shows, and seeing what amazing die ideas she’s coming up with. Now I get to work with her!

Disclosure: I received some of today’s supplies for free from 3L, however all opinions are my own.

Be gentle with me, my paper craft mojo has been absent for a while. But I have this card today, using the Grand Arch die set, which creates an intricate 3D card base that reminds me of wrought iron. It’s really easy to create this shadowbox effect with the die cuts.

Now the flowers, that’s a different story…not that they’re hard to make, but I couldn’t make up my mind on which set of flowers to use. I watched a few videos and made 2 sets of flowers using the same dies. I love the more open flowers, so I’ll keep the other set for another project.

On the right side (below), die cut white cardstock then spritz with water and shape them with various sizes of embossing styluses. Then I used semi transparent sparkling watercolor paints to add the color, with the smallest pieces the darkest shades. All the leaves are shaped with a stylus and painted in a few shades of green.

For the left side flowers on the card, spritz the die cuts with water, fold them together and twist gently. Carefully unfold and allow them to dry. Then I painted with 2-3 shades of the watercolor paints, with the centers the darkest. PRO TIP: Be sure to let the flowers dry before assembling and attaching to the card. I found that Thin 3D Foam Squares were the best way to adhere these flowers.

Behind the flowers I tucked Shadowbox Ribbon Threader die cut, with a sheer pink ribbon woven through it. I cut them in half, folded and then layered the pieces.

This blog hop started several years ago as a way for designers to share in the samples and extras they receive. Sometimes we have things that just don’t fit our style, duplicates, just too much stuff, or very generous companies that support you. This is a way to give back to our fans as a way to thank YOU for your continued likes, comments, shares, and follows.

As Media Director for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®, I definitely have too much stuff, and a very generous company!

Here’s a project I did on the 3L blog, click for the tutorial:
