Amazing Paper Grace June 2022 Die of the Month

I’m thrilled to be crafting a bit more lately. I had a chance to create with the new Amazing Paper Grace June Die of the Month, Pop Up 3D Vignette Road Trip! I have a few graduations to celebrate this year and this die is perfect! My first project is for my nephew’s graduation from nursing school.

I made the outstretched arm holding a rolled up diploma, and the car is in his school’s colors. I added a mortar board to his head.

This card folds flat to easily fit in an A7 sized envelope.

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

There are 26 cutting dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Road Trip. You can make front and back of the car, and you have dies to make the front and back of adult and child sized heads and hair. You also get a bridal veil and bouquet.

My second project is for our friend’s daughter. I wanted to make an equally cute card, but a little different. She loves daisies and yellow is her favorite color.

On the inside, I used the extra daisies and the cut out from the front frame. I tucked a gift card under the Congratulations banner. This card fits in an A7 envelope.

You may also notice that the grill on the front of the cars…one is upside down but I think it works either way. The headlights can be flipped, and the hood ornament can be placed where you like. There is embossing on the car body, so be sure to run it through the embossing sandwich.

Supplies:
Amazing Paper Grace June 2022 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Road Trip. I also used the Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base for the daisies, and the Eyelet Lace Frame.

I also used white cardstock, 3D Foam Squares and Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive liquid glue, Metallic Silver cardstock, Distress Ink, Platinum Die Cutting System .

The Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month is available exclusively at Spellbinders Paper Arts during June 2022, Pop Up 3D Vignette Road Trip along with other membership perks.

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

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: Black Velvet and silver 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, Spellbinders Platinum die cutting machine

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.
