Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register Blog Hop

Cha-ching! Is there any living person that hasn’t absolutely been intrigued by a Cash Register and all of its compartments and treasure it holds inside? As kids, it’s one of the first grown up toys we played with. The sound of a cash register ringing means prosperity and so many good things. Say welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace September 2021 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register.   

The light-hearted, pun-filled sentiments are perfect for any occasion, to send this 3D Fold Flat card. Want to let someone know how valuable they are to you? The “Priceless” sentiment will say that loud and clear. Do you want to express your opinion?  “Just My .02” is the sentiment you’re looking for.

Beautiful old fashioned scroll work embosses, and the main pieces cut separately so you can use dimension to add more detail to this realistic die cut.  

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create:

  • Make the traditional cash register and stock it with gift cards
  • Make a basket from both facades for donations or as a friendly tip jar
  • Are you in the middle of a fundraiser? Use it as a table favor to break the ice.
  • Create a mini album with a cash register on the front and back for kids to record their savings

This die was supplied by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s blog post.

There are 16 dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register.

My Project Today using Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register.

My black cash register card uses black velvet textured paper. The embossing looks amazing, but it was hard to catch the light in the photos. We recently moved and in the unpacking of my craft supplies I found a nice stash of specialty paper. This card uses a combination of metallic colors and sheens.

My flowery card uses patterned paper with a white core. I sanded the embossed parts to further emphasize the designs. I used 3D Foam Squares to add dimension to the drawer and key area. The tiny flowers are so fun to make and add more dimension to the card.

Designer Tip: Do use a sturdy cardstock for the 3D Vignette front and back. In this case the velvet textured paper was glued to a firm cardstock. For deeper embossing you can lightly spritz your cardstock with water before die cutting and embossing. Let it dry completely before sanding it.

Supplies:
Dies: Amazing Paper Grace September 2021 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Vintage Cash Register, S3-420 Petite Floral Potpourri
Paper: Velvet and metallic papers, cream, black and, grey cardstock, Photoplay Moments Collection patterned paper.
Other: Pearls, flower stamens, 3D Foam Squares Adhesives, Nuvo Deluxe glue, nail file for sanding, flower shaping tools

Holiday Medley Blog Hop | Amazing Paper Grace

A7 Christmas Card

Today I’m blog hopping with Amazing Paper Grace, who sent me these dies to use.

This magical menagerie of dies helps celebrate one of the most festive times of the year through paper crafting! The Holiday Medley Collection consists of eight die sets and a Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Set that coordinates with one of the die sets. The array of dies can be mixed within existing die sets to offer more creative options. These include the Make a Scene Card Base and 3D Vignettes. The versatile new Merry Filigree Card Builder, Celebrate Scrollwork Card Builder and Joy Crescent Card Builder sets create different card formats from A2, A7, Mini Slimline, to Slimline.

In addition, you can remove the Christmas Motifs and use them year-round. Visit each of the designers’ blogs for inspiration and ideas from the Holiday Medley Collection!

Slimline Christmas card

The die I’m using is S5-466 Joy Crescent Card Builder

A2 Christmas card

My challenge was to show this die in 3 sizes, A2, A7, and slimline, with the same papers to show you how to use all parts of the die to create any size or shape card. By layering the cardstock with gold metallic paper I created a dimensional effect with the designs and words. For the Joy to the World part I die cut and then fussy cut the words and layered again.

The poinsettia flowers are from the Cinch and Go Poinsettia and I followed the tutorial in the Amazing Paper Grace Facebook Group (join, then go to Guides, the tutorial is by Anita Kejriwal).

Designer Tip: These dies have intricate cut lines, and even through I used a nice sturdy cardstock, I had to add a shim to the die cut sandwich. This saves having to run the die through a few times. When I get new dies I like to die cut all the pieces and save those so I can arrange them and decide how I’m going to use them without cutting into my designer papers until I’m ready.

Amazing Paper Grace Pop Up 3D Vignette Home Sweet Home

It’s so true that all paths lead home.  It’s during this long stint with the pandemic that many of us have come to realize that it doesn’t matter where you are; it’s the people you are with.  That’s the inspiration that fed into the creation of the July 2021 Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month, Pop Up 3D Vignette Home Sweet Home.  The sentiment that comes within the set says it all – You are My Home.

There’s just something so quaint and sweet about little houses. They mean so much to us – a place of safety, a place of comfort, a place of love. It’s only fitting that one should show up as a Mini Vignette! This card folds flat to fit into an envelope to be sent through the mail. It beckons you to insert your favorite pictures, a multipage note or sweet nothings on the three panels that rest inside.

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create:

  1. A mini scrapbook album
  2. A table centerpiece with a house on each side
  3. Separate the small house facade and use it on a card, a scrapbook layout, and beyond!

Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

There are 21 dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Home Sweet Home.

My Project Today using Pop Up 3D Vignette Home Sweet Home

Today’s cards are an exercise in minimalism, not because I way trying to make a statement, but because we’re moving! My Grand Calibur is lovingly packed away, along with most of my craft supplies. I only have a 4″ wide die cut machine and a few sheets of cardstock at my finger tips. In a way it makes the process easier!

My 3D Vignette card is made according to the video linked below and the instructions with the kit. It’s easy and follows the same format as other 3D Vignettes. The placement of the embellishments is up to you, notice everyone has a different take on them.

My card below uses 2 sets from the Make A Scene collection because 1. I needed something for a background without having other supplies to use, and 2. they fit the card so perfectly! It’s a simple top fold, and to keep the Home tall and narrow I skipped the body of the house and cut down the roof to fit. You’ll notice the facade of the house has folds to give it some dimension.

Designer Tip:

Trim the inserts about 1/4 inch so they fit easily into the 3D Vignette card spaces. Use sturdy cardstock for the structure of the 3D Vignettes.

Supplies:
Accessories: Amazing Paper Grace July 2021 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Home Sweet Home, S5-441 Rolling Along Scene (hills), S4-1081 Cozy Home Scene (text)
Other: Cream and Gold cardstock, liquid glue
