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.

Halloween Ghoul’s Night Out Card

I can almost taste the Halloween candy! I have a Ghoul’s Night Out card for the blog hop with Lawn Fawn and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® this week. Today is the last day, be sure to visit both blogs and enter to win some great prizes.

Disclosure: I received products from both companies for this blog hop.

I just got some new watercolor pencils, and oh, I’m in love! Realize this is my first go at them, but I do love how they blended, even if I got too much water on the background.

Ghouls Night Out Card by Beth Pingry

Die cutting with these is so easy, you can see the stamped lines from inside the die, just line up, secure the die in place with low tack tape and cut. 3D Foam Squares give the ghouls a nice pop, and the Creative Photo Corners frame the image nicely.

You can see more of this card, and today’s other bloggers, and the links to the rest of the week’s posts, AND to Lawn Fawn on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog.
