Wujek Józio, mój ojciec chrzestny, był największym fanem moich ręcznie robionych kartek. Kolekcjonował je wszystkie, a ja regularnie w każde Święta, najładniejsze kartki słałam do wujka, z odręcznie wypisanymi życzeniami, co również ogromnie cenił. Wujek Józio odszedł w marcu tego roku i bardzo nam wszystkim go brakuje. Chciałam zrobić dla siebie pamiątkę- pożegnanie, ze zdjęciem, które zrobiła wujkowi moja siostra w restauracji Śląska Prohibicja.

Uncle Józio, my godfather, was the biggest fan of my handmade cards. He collected them all, and I regularly sent the most beautiful cards to him every Christmas and Easter, with handwritten wishes, which he also greatly appreciated. Uncle Józio passed away in March of this year, and we all miss him very much. I wanted to make a keepsake for myself, a farewell, with a photo, which my sister took in the Silesian Prohibition restaurant.

W swojej pracy wykorzystałam zestaw wykrojników “Forever in Our Memory” od Amazing Paper Grace, z kolekcji “Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes”. W skład kolekcji wchodzi także zestaw “Petite Floral Potpourri” zawierający przeróżne wzory drobnych kwiatków i listków.

I used the "Forever in Our Memory" die cut set from Amazing Paper Grace’s "Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes" collection. The collection also includes a "Petite Floral Potpourri" set with a variety of small flowers and leaves.0721Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny06

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!

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

Dzisiaj prezentuję kartkę urodzinową, w ozdobnym kształcie, wykonaną z użyciem wykrojników Birthday Wishes Vignette S5-455 od Amazing Paper Grace. Największy wykrojnik z tego zestawu nadaje się idealnie do wycięcia bazy do kartki – i to jest świetny sposób na nadanie kartce wyjątkowej strojności.

0721Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny04

Today I’m featuring a birthday card, in a decorative shape, made using the Birthday Wishes Vignette S5-455 die cuts from Amazing Paper Grace. The largest die-cut from this set is perfect for cutting out the base for the card – and it’s a great way to give the card a special touch.

Wyjątkowe podziękowania pięknie jest wyrazić odpowiednią kartką! Amazing Paper Grace ostatnio wprowadziło kolelekcję “Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes”, w której znajdują się wykrojniki z kaligrafowanymi sentencjami na różne okazje. Kolekcja z sentencjami pasuje także do starszych wykrojnków, do wykonywania kartek przestrzennych – Vignettes 3D.

A special thank you can be beautifully expressed with the right card! Amazing Paper Grace recently introduced the "Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes" collection, which features dies with calligraphed sentiments for various occasions. The sentiment collection also matches the older dies, for making dimensional cards – 3D Vignettes.

Happy… wymiana ATC

0621Week5-AgnieszkaPosluszny02

Ostatnio brałam udział w wymianie Artist Trading Cards, której tematem były emocje. Swoje karty wykonałam używając pięknego wykrojnika z nowej kolekcji Amazing Paper Grace "Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection" – Happy Anniversary S5-458. Wykrojnik jest wyjątkowo duży i dekoracyjny, więc wykorzystałam jedynie fragment pięknej wycinanki, ze słowem "Happy". Tło na kartach wykonałam z drobnych wycinanek z zestawu Petite Floral Potpourri S3-420.

Poniżej możecie zobaczyć zestawy, które wykorzystałam w mojej pracy.

0621Week5-AgnieszkaPosluszny06

I recently participated in an Artist Trading Cards exchange with a theme of emotions. I made my cards using a beautiful die cut from Amazing Paper Grace’s new "Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection" – The Happy Anniversary S5-458 die-cut is extra large and decorative so I only used a piece of the beautiful cut-out with the word "Happy". The background on the cards is made of tiny cut-outs from Petite Floral Potpourri set S3-420.

Below you can see the sets that I used in my work.

Beautiful card front sentiments do the heavy lifting on a card and the recipient knows exactly what you are trying to say. In that spirit, today we are introducing a new collection called Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes. It spins beautiful, intertwined calligraphic words into a compact label shape, perfect for the front of your card.

.

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

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Inspiration

Many Amazing Paper Grace followers were so thrilled when the first 3D Vignettes with word inserts came out. Over time, our followers have asked for a greater variety of words to fit into the 3D Vignette apertures. Your wish is our command!

0621Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny04

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection

The Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection is made up of 7 different die sets and a stamp set. Most sets contain a sentiment and a filigree background layer. Each set makes it quite easy to produce a complete card. The bonus is the sentiment shapes each match an existing 3D Vignette. Along with being able to complete a card, the new sentiments will allow another sentiment to existing 3D Vignettes already in your stash. Romantic Chargeour works with all the sentiments.

Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection also contains an "inside" sentiment set that matches the thought on the outside of the card. To top off the collection we’ve included Petite Floral Potpourri. It’s a compilation of all the small flowers and leaves that are most requested by our community.

My Projects for Today

0621Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny14

Here is my card made using Bless Your Heart Vignette Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca FeekenS5-459. I went for a mixture of dark paper colors (purple and navy) with a mirror gold cardstock sentiment to make a statement and add to elegance. Trying not to overload it, I added just few simple small flowers and leave branches cut out using Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken S3-420.
There is a stamp set included in this collection and it is perfect for adding some thoughtful message inside the card: Beautiful Inside and Out Sentiments Clear Stamp from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken STP-058.

My second project is 3D card (which folds flat and can be fitten in an envelope) made using the older dies – Shapeabilities Grand Cabinet 3D Card Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken S6-139. Beautiful sentiment goes with it perfectly and gives it a new life :) Again, I used a mirror gold cardstock to make it more elegant.

Mały ptaszek mi powiedział… a resztę już można dopisać sobie w środku kartki :) Ten uroczy zestaw, składający się z kwiatowego wianka, ptaszka i napisu okolicznościowego, to kolejna część kolekcji Sweet Cardlets II od Amazing Paper GraceA Little Birdie GLP-286.


0621Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny02

Na papierach w pastelowych kolorach, z kwiatowym wzorem, odbiłam motywy złotą folią przy pomocy metalowych płytek z zestawu. Złocenia wyglądają ślicznie na żywo i sprawiają trochę problemów kiedy chce się je pokazać na zdjeciach :D Poniżej możecie zobaczyć efekt lekko pod światło.

What’s better than one world?  Well, of course, it’s the best of both worlds!  Today we are introducing a new Slimline Die that is part of an A7 Card Front – we call it an all-in-one.  Who knew that slimline could look so feminine – welcome the slim new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June 2021, Victorian Splendor Slimline.

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

Our inspiration is always being able to get the most out of a die set and this one scores high on the bar for functionality and feminine appeal.  If you can imagine a "Card Creator" type of die that has an inset Slimline, a decorative inset Border, and a sentiment label that could all be used in a Card Front – then you’d be looking at Victorian Splendor Slimline.  It has A2 and A7 elements.  It functions as a Card Front and pretends to be a slimline – all in one. 

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to use pieces of the set:

1.  Pull the mini-sized slimline out and use it separately. 
2.  Inlay the border at the bottom and top of a landscape A7 Card. 
3.  Create a tall gatefold by folding in the border panel on two cuts of the A7 card front.

There are 10 dies included in the Victorian Splendor Slimline.

Designer Tip: I was first apprehensive about using heavily patterned papers with this set, but unnecessarily so. These patterns also look beautiful on such papers, taking on a slightly gothic feel.

Kolejny zestaw z kolekcji płytek do nakładania folii na gorąco Sweet Cardlets II to You Are  My Home GLP-283. Uwielbiam motywy domków! Tym razem użyłam czarnej folii dającej efekt emalii, która idealnie pasuje do przytulnych szaro-żółtych papierów do scrapbookingu. W zestawie znajdują się także wykrojniki, które umożliwiają idealna wycięcie foliowanych motywów. Świetne jest to, że w jednym malutkim zestawie mamy tło, obrazki i sentencje – komplet do wykonania małych słodkich karteczek :)

 

0521Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny02

Another set from the Sweet Cardlets II hot foil stamping plate collection is You Are My Home GLP-283 and I love the cottage theme! This time I used a black foil that gives an enamel effect, which goes perfectly with the cozy grey and yellow scrapbooking papers. The kit also comes with die-cuts that allow you to perfectly cut out the foiled motifs. What’s great is that in one tiny set we have the background, images and sentences – complete for making cute little cards :)

 

You Are My Home

0521Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny12_blog

Last October we introduced Cardlets and they are back in Sweet Cardlets II!  A "Cardlet" is a small character motif that comes with a sentiment that fits within a  3 x 3 area and has a matching die.  It just so happens that this size is perfect for the ever-popular Slimline Cards.  Join us in introducing a new slimline as well – Hemstitch Slimline – it will match Hemstitch Rectangles and all of the other Hemstitch Classics. 

 

I am thrilled to partner with Amazing Paper Grace to bring you this little taste of inspiration!

0521Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny04_blog

Sweet Cardlets are just like stamps, but they are metal plates used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure.  The Glimmer machine base is rolled through your die-cut machine to deliver that pressure. (Compatibility charts on the Spellbinders website).

0521Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny02_blog

The Inspiration behind Sweet Cardlets II

Since we are premiering the first Slimline Card Die for the Amazing Paper Grace line of dies, we wanted you to have plenty of sweet elements that fit onto the slimline.  The small motif 3" x 3" footprint makes this easy.  Add to that there is a matching die it makes for a cute pop of dimension on all of your cards – Slimline, A2 or A7.

Always mindful of the budget, Becca wanted to create a collection where each set is all you need to make a little card.  Sweet Cardlets are small motifs with a 3" x 3" footprint.  Sweet Cardlets also fit into the Cascade Card Base and work along with all of the Shadowbox Dies.

0521Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny06_blog

GLP-284-Cup-of-Kindness

As for my project today I have two cards – a cascade one and a slimline one. Sweet Cardlets are just like that: sweet and small cards. I just love the small motifs – very easy to combine and use on cards, i.e. cascade ones. The pot and the cup from Cup of Kindness Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set are just too cute (GLP-284). I fell in love with the dotted background! It adds such a lovely detail to patterned paper. Now I want to “golden dot” everything!

0521Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny08_blog

My second project is a slimline card made using Hemstitch Slimline Dies S6-175 – they imitate hemstich, which is gorgeous. And slimline is all over the place right now! So let me join the trend – but honestly, I do love this shape, so elegant. I addes hot foiled elements to my card as well, like a note “You’re my cup of tea” which comes with Cup of Kindness Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set GLP-284

Dzisiaj dzielę się kartką, którą skomponowałam z samych wycinanek. Wykorzystałam wycinanki ażurowe, tła, a nawet resztki z wycinanek, które zazwyczaj są wyrzucane. Kolekcja to inspirowana witrażami Be Leave Me Etched Dies from Stained Glass Bouquet Collection by Becca Feeken.

 

Today I am sharing a card that I composed from just die cuts. I used openwork die cuts, backgrounds, and even scraps from cutouts that are usually discarded. The collection is a stained glass inspired Be Leave Me Etched Dies from Stained Glass Bouquet Collection by Becca Feeken.

You can tell that around here, we adore spring and the prospect of blooming flowers. This month we invite you to take an idyllic stroll to a place of beauty. It calls and beckons to you, to come and sit down and enjoy your surroundings and all of the nature around you. Today I’m introducing a beautiful new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month.  The way in . . . is through the Garden Gate. Introducing the beautiful new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for May 2021, Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.

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

0521Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny02_blog

This A7 showpiece folds flat into an envelope, only to expand and sit on a desktop where it invites the lucky recipient to take a stroll through the Garden Gate. As always, this die is meant to break apart and use the dies separately.  The elements are less than 4" wide and are begging you to use them on an A2 card. You’ll love the charming details – hinges, a hook lock and a swinging sign to record your message.

Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create a flat card or box:

1.  The picket fence for a gatefold card (hint the gate really opens).
2.  The Arches for a wedding.
3.  The flowers and vines are curved to fit the arch but also make a wreath.
4.  A picket fence box and the arches for handles.

Inviting you to plan your own garden and know you are in a place of peace and beauty when you come in through the Garden Gate.

0521Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny12_blog

There are 15 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.

I made a 12×12”  layout with a photo of me and my new baby friend – Radzio :) This was one of greatest joys during the Covid time and I wanted to document it – this  fairy garden gate seemed to be a perfect embellishment to go with a cute photo.

As my second project I made a treat box – if you want to create your own, you just need to glue “bottom” (which is a rectangular piece of cardstock)  to the gate and that’s it, you can fill it with candy!

Ten piękny zestaw wykrojników z tulipanami, inspirowany witrażem, natchnął mnie do eksperymentów. Postanowiłam użyć papierów scrapbookingowych ze wzorami stylizowanymi na drewno i marmur do wykonania zestawu kartek – efekt szalenie mi się podoba.

Wykrojniki pochodzą z kolekcji Stained Glass Bouquet od Amazing Paper Grace“Tulip Trio” S5-447 

 

0421Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny04_blog

This beautiful set of tulips dies, inspired by stained glass, inspired me to experiment. I decided to use scrapbooking papers with wood and marble designs to make a set of cards – I love the result.

I used dies from the stunning collection Stained Glass Bouquet od Amazing Paper Grace“Tulip Trio” S5-447

Pożegnanie z pracą

0421Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny04_blog

Koniec kwietnia to także koniec mojej obecnej pracy – od maja zaczynam nową! Na skrapie uwieczniłam pożegnalny, wzruszający prezent od mojej ekipy z działu. Bardzo surrealistyczne doświadczenie w pandemii, wszystko zdalnie, ale prezent dotarł umyślną i wzruszam się nim do dziś. To były bardzo fajne dwa lata spędzone w doborowym towarzystwie.

Chciałam żeby było prosto i szybko, więc wykorzystałam ciekawe tła z papierów Mintay, a ozdoby to ornamenty różane wyciete wykrojnikiem Amazing Paper Grace z kolekcji “Stained Bouquet” Radiant Oval.

 

0421Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny02_blog

I wanted it to be simple and quick, so I used interesting backgrounds from Mintay papers, and the embellishments are rose ornaments cut out with Amazing Paper Grace dies from "Stained Bouquet" Radiant Oval collection.

Mam wielką nadzieję, że pogoda nastanie już teraz wiosenna – a że radosne połączenie różowego z zielonym zawsze mi się wiosennie kojarzy, to taką mam dzisiaj kartkę do pokazania, celem tej wiosny przywołania. Kolory, tiul, wstążeczka, krateczki, koronka oraz niezła zabawa w układanie kompozycji z wycinanek wykrojnikowych (tu użyłam Amazing Paper Grace “Sweet Rondure”  S5-446 z kolekcji Stained Glass Bouquet oraz “Picot Petite Rectangles” S5-434 jako serwetkowy brzeg w tle.

 

I really hope that the weather is going to be spring-like now, and since the joyful combination of pink and green is always spring-like for me, I have such a card to show you today, in order to evoke this spring. Colors, tulle, ribbon, gingham, lace and a lot of fun in creating compositions from cut-outs (here I used Amazing Paper Grace "Sweet Rondure" S5-446 from Stained Glass Bouquet collection and "Picot Petite Rectangles" S5-434 as a background lace.

Najnowsza kolekcja wykrojników Amazing Paper Grace jest inspirowana witrażami – szczególnie zestaw do wycinania ramek Wistful Window S6-171 przypomina secesyjne witraże. Oprawiłam tymi ramkami ulubiony obiekt – latarnię morską :) Kolory są nietypowe dla witraży, ale za to 100% marynistyczne. 

 

Amazing Paper Grace’s newest die-cut collection is inspired by stained glass – especially the Wistful Window S6-171 frame cutting set reminds of Art Nouveau stained glass. I framed my favorite object – a lighthouse :) The colors are unusual for stained glass, but 100% nautical.

album_jesienny_0

Mamy co prawda wiosno-zimę, ale ja wracam do jesieni i pokazuję mój album, ze zdjęciami z tamtego czasu. Okładka już się pojawiła wcześniej, tu –> album jesienny , a dzisiaj środek. Cały album powstał z wszytych kart do okładki starej książki, które zrobiłam w różnych wielkościach, i niektóre są z klapkami. Papiery i dodatki jesienne, historie w środku liryczne i smutne – co się nachodziliśmy z Oreo, szukając Pralinki, to nasze…

 

It’s spring-or-winter now, but I’m going back to fall and show you my album, with photos from that time. The cover has already appeared  here -> the autumn album, and today I’m showing the middle. The whole album is made of sewn-in cards to the cover of an old book, which I made in different sizes, and some have flaps. Papers and accessories are autumny, stories inside lyrical and sad – what we went through with Oreo, looking for Pralinka, is ours…

This month is coming up all flowers!  We turned spring up a notch and have more "unique" blooming flowers for you to try.  Today I’m introducing a set of dimensional flowers in the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the month for April 2021, Dahlia Dimensional Doily.

Dies were furnished to Creative Team Members by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace.

Three new flowers.  We are showcasing three new flowers!  Easy, easier, easiest.  Easy – Dahlia Dimensional Doily is a flower made with round disks that link together to form the base and the petals.  Built on the same concept as dimensional doilies, this representation of flowers creates a focal element that has some height.  Easier – One round piece in the set, with eight cut and folded circles combines to make a familiar round dimensional flower.  Easiest – Sweet spiral flowers with a score line that lets you fold over and shape the spiral. Oh, and don’t forget a background that when cut twice gives you a full A2 Background.

All together the background and flowers create a sweet, layered dimensional finished card that can be made for an A2 or an A7 card base!

There are 11 dies included in the Dahlia Dimensional Doily.

It’s a miracle that little painted shards of glass can come together to create such beauty!!  The intriguing lure of Stained Glass has inspired artisans from around the world to try their hand at shuffling colors and shuffling shards of glass to create something lovely to gaze upon.  Today we are introducing the newest Amazing Paper Grace collection called Stained Glass Floral Bouquet, created for Spellbinders.

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

0321Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny02_blog

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Inspiration

Becca says that the inspiration for the collection came from her love of stained glass and never being able to muster the time to do it with real glass.  Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?  Now it’s easy to create with paper!  It’s amazing how you can give the same outline to a hand full of different artists and each will come up with a totally different look.

Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection

The Stained Glass Floral Bouquet Collection is made up of 7 different die sets.  They are sized for layering and include small designs all the way up to A7 designs with different frames that can make both A2 and A7 designs.  The collection boasts shadow dies for each set so that whenever you don’t want a multicolor design, you can layer your "die-cut leading" onto one color.  The hallmark of the collection is a sweet stained glass flower and shadow in almost every set.  That gives you a background die and a central motif for each set. 

Attention "technique junkies" this collection is sweetly serenading you to try your favorite technique with the leading and the shards.

   

 Here are ours:

  1. Fill each opening with a different color paper and add Glossy Accents.
  2. Ink on a hombre background before resetting your shards.
  3. Add a smidge of color in each opening with a Copic Marker.
  4. Use a different color leading – white, black, gold, silver.
  5. Build up tall leading with 4 layers and adhesive in between each.

My Projects for Today

I made two Art Nouveau inspired cards and used metallic paste to enchance die cut frames – the die set is Deco Bloom.

Designer tip: I used black cardstock and metallic pastes by Pentart, applied with a soft brush – these really go together and give a wow! effect.

Do wykonania tej kartki sięgnęłam po eleganckie papiery w kolorach bladego różu, szarości i kremu, a napisy, Parę Młodą i ornamentową ramkę wycięłam ze srebrnego, lustrzanego kartonu. W ruch poszły wykrojniki Amazing Paper Grace z kolekcjji “Make a Scene” oraz zestaw do wykonania ślubnej scenki wewnątrz, czyli “Wedded Bliss Scene”.

Wnętrze kartki składa się z różnych warstw – w tej ślubnej wersji jest tło z napisem “Mąż i Żona”, altanka i Para Młoda.

0321Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny06_blog

Rzut kartki z góry – widać wszystkie warstwy tworzące przestrzenną scenkę:

0321Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny8_blog

A po zsunięciu boczków – składa się całkiem na płasko i może być wysłana w kopercie! Naprawdę, przestrzenna kartka wykonana z kolekcji “Make A Scene”, to gwarantowana niespodzianka dla obdarowanej osoby :)

Zbliżają się urodziny mojego siostrzeńca Janka, więc przygotowałam dla niego interaktywną kartkę. Wiem, że bardzo podobała mu się kartka-teatrzyk z domkiem, którą zrobiłam jakiś czas temu, więc teraz dostanie taką specjalną na okazję urodzin :)

Przestrzenna scenka w środku składa się z 3 warstw – tortu, baloników i napisu “Happy Birthday”, i pokazuje się po rozsunięciu dwóch paneli na boki.

Do wykonania kartki użyłam zestawu wykrojników Amazing Paper Grace do tworzenia bazy interaktywnej S6-165, zestawu “Celebration Scene” S-5-440 i z zewnątrz ozdobiłam ornamentem z zestawu “Scallop Façade Frame” S6-168.

0321Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny04_blog

My nephew Janek’s birthday is coming up, so I prepared an interactive card for him. I know that he really liked the interactive house card I made some time ago, so now he’ll get a special one for his birthday :)

The 3D scene in the middle consists of 3 layers – a birthday cake, balloons and the caption "Happy Birthday", and it shows when you pull the two panels apart on the sides.

To make this card I used die set by  Amazing Paper Grace – interactive base card S6-165, die set “Celebration Scene” S-5-440 and embellished on the outside with the ornament from die set  “Scallop Façade Frame” S6-168.

Mój bratanek Łukasz z pasją pomykający na rowerze :) Na zdjęciu uchwycony na Dużej Pętli Rowerowej w Parku Śląskim. Zdjęcie jest bardzo kolorowe i robiąc ten layout sięgnęłam po kolory nim inspirowane – wycinając z kartonów kolorowe rowerki. Wykrojnik rower pochodzi z zestawu “Rolling Along Scene” z kolekcji “Make A Scene” i służy do wykonania scenki w kartce interaktywnej – jednak może być z powodzeniem użyty do wycinania pojedynczych elementów!

0321Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny14_blog

My nephew Łukasz passionately cycling :) In the picture he’s captured on the Big Bicycle Loop in the Silesian Park. The photo is very colorful so while making this layout I used colors inspired by it – I cut out  bicycles from colorful cardstock. The bicycle die comes from the "Rolling Along Scene" die set from the "Make A Scene" collection and is used to make a scene in an interactive card – however it can be successfully used to cut out individual elements!

It doesn’t take many steps past February to begin to ache for the stirrings of spring.  Blooming flowers are the earliest sign and we have something to get you started.  Today I’m introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for March 2021, Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar.

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to create with.

 

Imagine kicking rocks as you walk down a sweet rural road, on one of the first days the weather hints that the seasons are starting to change.  You pick wildflowers and rush home to put them into a jar of water to keep them perky for the days to come.  This is the inspiration that struck Becca when she put together the flower and mason jar combination.  It’s so cute and sweet!!

This easy to assemble mason jar can contain anything, but today it holds layered flowers.  This flat side look is just like a real bouquet.  Glue them or layer them with foam tape to make a dramatic statement.  The mason jar can be left solid or cut like a frame for a shaker card the stems are simply threaded through each lid to secure them for arrangement.  If you’re partial to flat cards, use the filigree band with two brads to hold your stems! This makes a lovely card front bouquet, complete with stems.

0321Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny08_blog

There are 16 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Floral Mason Jar

Hi crafty friends!  It seems like we have been waiting for months for February to roll around.  We have been working in the background, holding our breath, tapping our feet and waiting on tippie toes to show you a new collection!  Ta-dah!!!  Today we are introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Collection called Make A Scene!!!  It was designed by Becca Feeken and is available at Spellbinders.  Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post.

 

NOW, TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU . . . 

In the past, Becca has created several interactive collections . . remember 3D Vignettes and remember Shadowbox Vignettes?  One of the things Becca does, is she tries to create a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with past collections. That means new material for your old material.

WHAT IS MAKE A SCENE?

 

Make A Scene is an interactive card collection and a flat card collection, all in one – you choose based on your style.

 

The interactive portion is made with a card base that folds in six different layered scenery options.  The 3D card base folds flat but slides open to reveal a dimensional scene.  Since it has a 3D profile, the opened card makes quite a splash and can be set out on a desk for showing off.  The card base is huge and it offers you the chance to snag one of six scenes that cover many occasions.  If the six scenes are not your occasion du jour, then by all means dive into your huge stash of dies and insert your own contents.

 

The flat card portion is made with the individual scenes.  Each of the components for the scenes can be cut onto the top of a panel and used on a flat card or as part of a 3D Vignette or as part of a shadowbox scene.

 

Today we are prepared to show you – each Creative Team Member has created both a 3D Card and a Flat Card so that you can see the best of both worlds!

 

My Projects for Today

 

My interactive “Home Sweet Home” card:

This is the back of the card – there is a place for a note:

0221Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny06_blog

And here is my second project – I made two simple, house shaped cardlets. Using the patterned scrapbooking paper as a background helped me to create “a scene”.

0221Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny10_blog0221Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny12_blog

 

Designers Tip: I used scrapbooking papers to cut out the base and my panels – these papers were sturdy enough and their designs added a lot of depth to my project.
When cutting all the elements, I used a magnetic cutting mat, which is a life saver! You don’t have to tape dies to papers, because they are firmly hold by the mat while rolling them through a diecutting machine.

 

How to Assemble:

 

When you see the card base it will make total sense how this goes together.  Here is a quick start video to lay it all out for you.

Zawsze podobały mi się zakładki do książek z różnymi zawieszkami, więc kiedy zobaczyłam te pszczółkę i biedronkę na płytkach do złoceń, to wydały mi się idealne do zrobienia takich zawieszek. Pszczółkę zrobiłam przy pomocy Glimmer Hot Foil System złotą folią, a biedroneczkę – czarną emalią. Właściwa część zakładek jest wycięta wykrojnikami w takim samym kształcie, ale różnych wielkości  – Nested Clipped Squares S4-1069

 

 

I’ve always liked bookmarks with different pendants, so when I saw these bee and ladybug on the foiling plates, they seemed perfect for making such pendants. I made the bee using Glimmer Hot Foil System with gold foil, and the ladybug with black enamel foil. The actual part of the bookmarks is cut out with Amazing Paper Grace die in the same shape but different sizes – Nested Clipped Squares S4-1069

Na bazie starej książki, jeszcze jesienią zrobiłam jesienny album z- kolejny z roku 2020 o pandemicznej rzeczywistości. Środkiem albumu podzielę się w kolejnym poście, a dzisiaj pokazuję okładkę. Ozdobiłam ją wycinankami z cudownego zestawu miesiąca Amazing Paper Grace na luty 2021 “Bella Diamante” – wielkość odpowiadała idealnie na okładkę :)

 

Using an old book as a base, I made a fall album back in the fall – another one from 2020 about pandemic reality. I’ll share the inside of the album in a future post, and today I’m showing the cover. I embellished it with die cuts made with Amazing Paper Grace’s gorgeous February 2021 "Bella Diamante" Die Of The Month – the size was perfect for the cover :)

Mam dziś do zaprezentowania kolorową kartkę z papierowym kwiatem. Wykorzystałam papiery do scrapbookingu jako tło oraz jako płatki. Żeby dodać więcej objętości kwiatu, zmoczyłam płatki i pogniotłam je.

Today I have to present a colorful card with a paper flower. I used scrapbooking papers as a background and for petals. To add more dimension to the flower, I wet the petals and crumpled them.

 

 

Do wykonania kwiatu użyłam poniższego zestawu wykrojników.

To make the flower I used the die set below.

This month’s Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month is an elegant tall card with a diamond motif as a focal point.  It’s a new shape to the line-up and today I’m introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for February 2021, Bella Diamante.

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these stunning dies to create with.

Becca says a book cover with four elegant corners inspired her, she thought it was a dreamy and dramatic way to showcase a frame.  Bella Diamante is a 5 x 7 card front, with several element layers and rims to use as inlays.  These multiple rims and elements will allow for both A2 and A7 cards.  Elegance reigns supreme with the ability to create shaped cards,  framed cards, or simply embellish with class.

There are 7 dies included in the Bella Diamante

DOMAPG-FEB21

My Project Today using Bella Diamante

With this Die Of The Month I created a scrapbooking layout featuring my dog’s favorite toy, that he got for Christmas. I used paper die cuts in colors matching my background papers and cut them into smaller pieces to use them as embellishments.

0221Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny02

My second project is a super fast card. I used the biggest die to cut out the card base, which is so easy and looks fabulous, then embellished it with one ornate cut out and 3 flowers. Thanks to patterned papers I didn’t have to put much on it and it literally took me 10 minutes to create it. I love this dies set!

Pierwsze Walentynki w tym roku wykonałam przy użyciu dużego wykrojnika, który był wykrojnikiem miesiąca we wrześniu 2020 (i jest jeszcze w sprzedaży). Z uwagi na słuszne rozmiary, można go wykorzystać do wycięcia bazy, a ornamenty z zestawu pasują do niej idealnie kształtem.

I made my first Valentine cards this year using the large die that was the Die of the Month in September 2020 (and is still on sale). Because it’s just the right size, you can use it to cut out the card base, and the ornaments from the kit fit it perfectly in shape.

Ponieważ okazja jest miłosna, to na moich kartkach króluje czerwień i róż, słodkie wyznania i dużo kwiatków wyciętych wykrojnikami Cinch and Go IV.

Because the occasion is a love one, my cards are dominated by reds and pinks, sweet confessions and lots of flowers cut out with the Cinch and Go IV die-cutting dies.

Remember the days in grade school when you dreamed of all the little envelopes you would collect in your pouch from Valentine’s Day?  Well, we gotcha covered! Today I am introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for January 2021, the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox.

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these wonderful dies to create with.

Sweet hearts and petite envelopes are a symbol of love.  The Amazing Paper Grace Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox harkens back to the days where you thought that the number of envelopes measured how loved you were.  No worries, this elegant mailbox holds a bouquet of enveloped surprises and is a clever way to hide some cute little messages.  Oh, and the front of the mailbox opens!  Becca uses the inspiration from a vintage mailbox as the basis for this elegant representation where romantic and cute go hand in hand.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a sweetheart this year.  After the holiday, this set can be used as a blue mailbox.  Did you notice it is a mini-sized 3D Vignette?! Built just like the grand sized vignettes that came before it, this little mini stands 4.75-inches tall and folds flat for mailing to your sweetheart!

My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox

Using this lovely set of dies I made a 3-panel cascade card. There is a mailbox on the middle panel, containing 4 small cards (for secret messages), with handles embellished with hearts. The upper edges of panels are embellished with cut out small hearts too.

0121Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny14a

My second project is a box (as a gift packaging) for a specialty tea. I used patterened scrapbooking papers to cut the basic shapes and make it pretty.

Tegoroczne odkrycie, czyli maszynka Glimmer Hot Foil System od Spellbinders, którą można robić złocenia na gorąco przy pomocy metalowych płytek ze wzorami, pomogła mi zrobić te zawieszki do prezentów :) Są skromne, ale dzięki srebrnej folii bardzo odświętne.

 

This year’s discovery, that is the Glimmer Hot Foil System from Spellbinders, which you can make hot foil stamping with metal plates with patterns, helped me make these gift tags :) They are modest, but thanks to the silver foil very festive.

Zawieszka na drzwi, świąteczna :) Zrobiłam ją dla Katarzynki i bardzo jej się spodobała. Niech cieszy ją całe Święta i dłużej <3  Wykorzystałam śliczne poinsecje z wykrojników Amazing Paper Grace, papiery i naklejki z kolekcji Carta Bella i papier (wydaje mi się) K&Company w tle. Zawieszka jest na naturalnym sznurku i okorowanym patyku.

This door sign I made for Katarzynka and she liked it very much. Let her enjoy it all Christmas and longer <3 I used beautiful poinsettias from Amazing Paper Grace dies, papers and stickers from Carta Bell collection and K&Company paper (I think) in the background.The sign is hung on a natural string and peeled stick.

A ja kontynuuję tworzenie kartek świątecznych, bo po prostu to uwielbiam :) Wysłać też, z ręcznie wypisanymi życzeniami! Tym razem pokazuję kartki w kolorystyce czerwono-brązowo-beżowej. Całą ich ozdobą są koronkowe wycinanki śnieżynki w różnych stylach, wycięte wykrojnikami Amazing Paper Grace (tu w użyciu zestaw Snowflake Splendor S5-429)  Żeby kartki były jeszcze bardziej świąteczne, dodałam poinsecje wycięte zestawem Cinch and Go S4-960.

1220Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny04a

And I continue to create Christmas cards, because I just love it :) Also sending, with handwritten wishes! This time I show cards in red-brown-beige color. They look all decorated with lace snowflake cut-outs in different styles, cut out with Amazing Paper Grace metal dies (here in use Snowflake Splendor S5-429 set) To make the cards even more festive, I added poinsettias cut out with Cinch and Go S4-960 set.

Here is how I got this idea of coziness – oranges and cinnamon, cocoa with foams, bells, Christmas wreath, birds and poinsettias. I cut out the lacey backgrounds and sentiments using Amazing Paper Grace dies:

Grodniowy Codziennik tworzę od 2011 roku, więc ten jest już dziesiątym. Ciężko było z czasem w listopadzie i na stworzenie bazy zostało mi niewiele czasu. Najwięcej zajęło mi rozmyślanie, w jakiej formie chcę go zrobić :D Za duży wybór. W końcu został mi już tylko jeden wieczór, więc postanowiłam użyć segregatowa na koszulki @Snap od Simple Stories, który czeka już 8-my rok (!) aż zrobię album z wakacji. Szkoda, żeby się marnował – będzie siedzibą mojego DD 2020 :D

Środek wypełniam papierami i naklejkami z dwóch uroczych kolekcji Carta Bella: Christmas i Let It Snow.

December_Daily_scrapbooking-album_2020_2

I’ve been creating the Grodno Diary since 2011, so this is already the tenth one. It was hard with time in November and I had little time left to create a base. It took me most of the time to think about what form I want to make it in :D Too many choices. After all, I only had one evening left so I decided to use the @Snap binder from Simple Stories, which has been waiting for the 8 years (!) until I make my vacation album. It would be a pity to not ot use it – it will be a home of my DD 2020 :D

I fill the inside with papers and stickers from two charming Carta Bell collections: Christmas and Let It Snow.

Boże Narodzenie na słodko! Główne kolory to miętowy i różowy, a świątecznym motywem jak pierniczkowa chatka wycięta z papieru scrapbookingowego. Na kartce stworzyłam kilka warstw wykorzystując wykrojniki Amazing Paper Grace z dwóch kolekcji: Picot Petite (Rectangles) S5-434 and Nested Clipped Squares S4-1069. A napis “Wesołych Świąt” pochodzi z wykrojnika Rosy Owl.

kartka_Boze_Narodzenie_handmade_domek_piernik_2

Sweet Christmas! The main colors are mint and pink, and the Christmas theme is a gingerbread house cut out of scrapbooking paper. On the card I created several layers of paper using Amazing Paper Grace dies from collections: Picot Petite (Rectangles) S5-434 and Nested Clipped Squares S4-1069. And the sentiment "Merry Christmas" comes from Rosy Owl die.

Dzisiaj przedstawiam kartki w stylu trochę rustykalnym, trochę skandynawskim. Powstały z wykorzystaniem efektownych wykrojników- napisów od Amazing Paper Grace, które dla mnie okazały się ogromnie inspirujące! Pasują mi idealnie do stylu papierów Carta Bella.

 

Today I present cards in a slightly rustic, slightly Scandinavian style. They were created with the use of great dies – word art from Amazing Paper Grace, which turned out to be very inspiring for me! They match perfectly the style of Carta Bell papers.

Today I am introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for December 2020,

Rose Garden Promise.

 

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these beautiful dies to create with.


Becca shares her inspiration for this 5×7-inch frame-worthy card front that resembles the look of stained glass.  She says, " ‚God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December,’ a quote by James M Barrie. It is precisely that quote that inspired me to think of roses at the end of the year. It has much to do with the promise of an approaching spring, buds bursting forward, and the gift of hope.  As one who loves rituals, I finished off 2019 with a die template that featured roses and decided it was worthwhile to pay them homage at the end of 2020."

Isn’t it only fitting to go forward with hope for the future and for new and worthwhile things that will break through.  From the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team, let this be a beautiful end to your year; we hope that through making, it brings with it the bonus of lovely memories. 

 

We want to inspire you with different combinations using the December Die of the Month, Rose Garden Promise etched die.

These are a few of our ideas!

  1. Stained Glass
  2. Wedding Card
  3. Shaker Card
  4. Anniversary Card
  5. Window Card
  6. Valentine’s Day Card

 

I bet you can come up with a few, share them in a comment!

1220Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny02

There are four (4) dies included in the Rose Garden Promise

DOMAPG-DEC20

My Project Today using Rose Garden Promise

Here is the card (5×7”) and a set of two little notebooks that I created using this die. The big roses are so decorative that I kept the composition and my color choices simple. With the card I went for a bit rustic look with outstanding shiny gold roses. Leaves are additionally painted with a bit of a dark brown watercolor paint.

1220Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny03

Designer Tip:

To make the notebooks, I glued golden cardstock diecut on the colorful scrapbooking paper, than scored it in a half to make a cover. White pages inside are stiched to the cover. I love their simple, but elegant look and they are super easy to make!

Supplies: Jane Davenport watercolors, gems from a stationary store.
Paper: Mintay Papers, golden cardstock, dark brown metallic cardstock,

Ten piękny efekt, jaki dają srebrne wzory naniesione na papier, jest naprawdę trudny do sfotografowania. A ta płytka, o nazwie “Sweet Blooms”, jest po prostu zachwycająca. Ja wykorzystałam ją trochę inaczej – wycinając pojedyncze kwiaty i tworząc kompozycję opartą na kształcie koła. Dzięki pastelowo kolorowym papierom tła, całość dała świeży, radosny efekt :)

This beautiful effect of silver patterns on paper is really difficult to photograph. And this tile, called "Sweet Blooms", is simply stunning. I used it a little differently – cutting out single flowers and creating a composition based on a circle shape. Thanks to pastel-colored background papers, the whole gave a fresh, joyful effect :)

1120Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny08

Napis na kartce jest również foliowany i znaczy “Dla mojej pięknej przyjaciółki/przyjaciela”.

The sentiment on the card is also foiled.

1120Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny091120Week4-AgnieszkaPosluszny10

Do wykonania kartki użyłam następujących wykrojników i płytek Amazing Paper Grace:

I used the following Amazing Paper Grace dies and plates to make the card:

Moja niezawodna Michelle przysłała mi z okazji święta Św. Marcina rogal z Poznania. I u mnie nastało święto – miliona kalorii! Kot Flint aż się trząsł z radości na słodkości (i nie tylko on). Więc rozsiadłam się w ulubionym fotelu z kubkiem kawy i celebrowałam rogalik. A następnie udokumentowałam te chwile na skrapie – bo w tym dziwnym 2020 roku bardzo potrzebuję dokumentowania pięknych chwil.

My reliable Michelle sent me a rogal from Poznan to celebrate St. Martin’s Day (it’s a very special croissant baked only for November 11th). And with me it was a holiday – a million calories! Flint cat was shaking with joy at the sweetness (and not only him). So I sat down in my favorite armchair with a cup of coffee and celebrated the rogal. And then I documented these moments on the scrapbook page – because in this strange year 2020 I really need to document beautiful moments.

 

1120Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny05

 

Dla uzyskania przytulnego domowego efektu użyłam papierów scrapbookingowych z domowymi motywami i dodałam dużo ażurowych wycinanek z zestawu wykrojników Filigree Quartet Etched Dies from Picot Petite by Becca Feeken S5-404. Z wykorzystaniem pojedynczych wycinanych elementów mogłam wykonać szeroką efektowną ramkę na mojej pracy.

 

For a cozy home effect I used scrapbooking papers with home motifs and added a lot of openwork cut-outs from the Filigree Quartet Etched Dies from Picot Petite by Becca Feeken S5-404. With the use of single cut-outs I was able to make a wide spectacular frame on my work.

To jest duża kartka, w porównaniu do tych, które zwykle tworzę – ma prawie 16×16 cm i postanowiłam na niej wyeksponować możliwości płytki do nakładania złoceń Diamonetta Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken GLP-240. Ta płytka jest zaprojektowana w ten sposób, że można kontynuować wzór, co pozwala na pokrycie większych powierzchni. A same romby są tak efektowne, że “robią” całą pracę :)1120Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny17

Serce z napisami jest wycięte z papieru scrapbookingowego i dopasowałam kolor folii tła kartki do tego na sercu. Żeby ożywić dużą ciemną powierzchnię, dodałam kolorowe wycinanki – są to pozostałości po moich pracach wykonanych w ramach projektu Upcyckled Grace, który prowadzę w grupie inspiracyjnej na Facebooku: Amazing Paper Grace – Creative Encouragement Community. Obok nich znalazły się kwiatuszki z wcześniejszej kolekcji APG Candlewick Sampler Grand Poclet S4-1022.

Delicate Impressions Details

We’re excited to introduce another Glimmer Hot Foil collection! The Delicate Impressions Collection has five sets of Glimmer Hot Foil Plates. The fifth set, Heart Melt Sentiments, has four unique phrases with matching dies. The other four sets are designed to create borders and accents that can be used on cards from A2 to 5 x 7-inches. Each elegant motif can be layered with itself or mix with others in the same collection or beyond.

Glimmer Hot Foil Plates are metal plates used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure.  Roll the Glimmer machine base through your die cut machine to deliver its beautiful design. Refer to Compatibility Charts on Spellbinders’ website, to see if your machine is a match.

1120Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny02

Our Creative Team members will showcase their creations made with the Delicate Impressions Collection today. For those of you who enjoy watercolors, we are using Jane Davenport Watercolors to highlight our projects. See if you can identify what techniques are being used!

Becca Feeken sent over these stunning plates and dies for me to try.

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with a Collection.

My Projects For Today

First up is Diamonetta Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken GLP-240. On my card I used this gorgeous plate to create a bacground on the dark metallic cardstock and the effect is stunning!  With such a statement I didn’t want to overwhelm the card so I decided for simple and delicate embellishments. This beautiful sentence is made with Heart Melt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken GLP-218 and there is also a watercolor background created with Watercolors Set Brights ArtEssentials by Jane Davenport JD-042

1120Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny03

1120Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny07

Here is what the dies look like: 

GLP-240-Diamonetta-Background

Designer Tip:  The Heart Melts Setiments plates come with coordinating dies, but I decided to use other Amazing Paper Grace die to cut out my sentiment and I’m very happy how it turned out.

1120Week2-AgnieszkaPosluszny09

My second project is this upcyckled glass jar that I turned into a tealight candle holder. I used the Diamonetta plate with silver foil on vellum and it created this lovely and delicate effect.

To kolejna kartka z zestawem do nakładania metalicznej folii na gorąco “Graceful Swan” z kolekcji Sweet Cardlets od Amazing Paper Grace. Możliwości wykorzystania go do tworzenia kartek, bilecików itp.  są ogromne i z radością je odkrywam :D Tym razem tło ze srebrnym ornamentem pomalowałam farbkami akwarelowymi Jane Davenport uzyskując rozmyty malarski efekt.

 

1120Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny15

Srebrny łabędź na biały tle wygląda naprawdę uroczo, a wyrkojnik dołączony do zestawu pozwala go precyzyjnie wyciąć i zachować elegancki charakter. Do tego romantycznego zestawu dodałam różowy tiul i ramkę wyciętą owalnym wykrojnikiem Picot Petite Ovals, także od Amazing Paper Grace.

If you haven’t already jumped into Christmas preparations, are you ready to sleigh it?  Today we are sharing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for November 2020 – Pop Up 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh.  This one is a little bit different because it folds down flat for mailing as do all the dies in the 3D Vignette lines.

 

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to create with.

 

1120Week1-AgnieszkaPosluszny01

Poinsettia Sleigh Details

 

This die can be used as flat detail on a 2D surface but transforms into a 3D show piece so easily that we’re happy you will have both options.  Becca traditionally creates a high end die that doubles as a decoration piece in November of each year.  Let’s just call it icing on the cake for the holidays.  It’s really a satisfying venture to grab a cup of coffee and sit down to put it together as it is to set it out on the table.

Today we want to inspire you to think of different combinations using the Poinsettia Sleigh.  Here’s what we had in mind:

 

Table Center Piece
Table Setting Favor
Filled with Candy and Goodies
Part of a Wonderland Menagerie
Flat 2D on the front of a card

   

In the comments let us know how you think it should be used.

There are 21 dies included in the Pop Up 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh

My Project Today using the Pop Up 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh

I made a set of a sleigh with poinsettias and a wreath card, in a bit rustical style. I love how the natural colors of kraft and red cardstock look together, giving the lovely effect.I also used these great poinsettia dies to make flowers for a wreath card.

Designer Tip:  I used an embossing stylus to “unflatten” the paper diecuts and give my poinsettias more natural look

P.S. 

In the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Encouragement Facebook Group there are two Step-by-Step Tutorials that take a novice through creating some spectacular poinsettias.  I hope you’ll join the group so that you have both of those methods in your toolbox.  They’ll come in handy this Christmas Season.

Wciągam się w “foliowanie”, czyli nakładanie folii metalicznych na papier, na gorąco. Efekty są naprawdę śliczne – dzisiaj prezentuję dwie kartki, na których są różne elementy wykonane przy pomocy płytek do nakładania folii oraz maszynki Glimmer Hot Foil System od Spellbinders.

1020Week4_AgnieszkaPosluszny04

Tym razem na tapet wzięłam te śliczności od Amazing Paper Grace z łabędziami <3 Płytki z łąbędziami, napisami i pięknym tłem, są w zestawie z wykrojnikiem, który umożliwia ładne wycięcie łabędzia.

Robiłam różne eksperymenty z kolorami kartonów i folii – wyjątkowo efektownie wygląda folia przezroczysta z efektem opal, nałożona na metalicznie mieniący się jasny karton. Tylko ten efekt jest bardzo trudny do pokazania na zdjęciach.

Ile trwa spełnienie marzenia?

25 dni, w tym przypadku.

Będąc na wakacjach nad morzem, we wrześniu, napisałam e-mail do Pana Krzysztofa, Dyrektora Muzycznego Radia Nowy Świat, z zażaleniem, że nie daje mi spać nocami, ponieważ prezentuje tak świetną muzykę w radiu :)) Napisałam też o mojej fiksacji wiolonczelowej i zapytałam z wielką odwagą, czy nie zechciałby kawałków z wiolonczelą w tle, zaprezentować na antenie. Nie dostałam odpowiedzi, ale…

… o mało nie padłam, gdy 17. października, w audycji Pana Krzysztofa “Dźwiękowe Kontro-Wersje” usłyszałam i swojego e-maila, i WiolonczeLOVE, i zapowiedź, że to zaledwie przedsmak, bo Pan Krzysztof przygotowuje pełną audycję z wiolonczelą w tle. I to było absolutnie fantastyczne!!! <3

Audycja Dźwiękowe Kontro-Wersje jest teraz dostępna w archiwum radia –> https://nowyswiat.online/podcast/podcastfilter/dzwiekowe-kontro-wersje-podcast/ Strona dostępna jest tylko dla patronów radia, a jak zostać patronem za 10 zł piszę poniżej.

Z niezwykle uroczej, nowej kolekcji płytek do złoceń i wykrojniczków od Amazing Paper Grace “Sweet Cardlets” mam dzisiaj kobiecą karteczkę (“cardlet") z biedroneczką :) Metaliczna folia nałożona na papier wygląda bardzo bardzo efektownie – a ja dodatkowo pomalowałam to jeszcze akwarelkami Jane Davenport.

What’s a Cardlet, pray tell?  A Cardlet is a small motif, complete with background, sentiment and character that combine to make small card or layers onto a larger card.  We’re delighted to introduce you to the Sweet Cardlets Collection.

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies and watercolors for me to try.

Sweet Cardlets show up in a Glimmer format with a matching die.   They are metal plates that are used in the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to transfer foil to paper through a combination of heat and pressure.  The Glimmer machine base is rolled through your die cut machine to deliver that pressure.  As long as you have a machine that can accommodate thick dies – like steel rule dies, you’re all set. A word to the wise, it is very addicting. 

The Inspiration behind Sweet Cardlets

We gotta fess up here.  There’s no such word as cardlets, yep, Becca straight up made it up.  You have to agree though, it sounds really cute, right?  Well that was the inspiration behind sweet cardlets.  As you can imagine it has something to do with cards and moreover, little cards. 

Always mindful of the budget, Becca wanted to create a collection where each set is all you need to make a little card.  Sweet Cardlets are small motifs with a 3" x 3" footprint.  Each has a background, a main character and several sentiments. 

We found it the right size to fit on an A2 card and even to layer onto an A7 card.  In fact, the 3" background can be repeated for a long background or a larger background.  Dies cut out each main character and three sentiments with each set give you lots of options.

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with the Sweet Cardlets Collection.  Today we’re all using Jane Davenport Watercolors in some technique to show off Sweet Cardlets.

Heart Felt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken GLP-219

GLP-219-Sweet-Cardlets-Becca-Feeken-Heart-Felt-SentimentsSo I made a cardlet <3 I used the background plate to foil these lovely hexagons on cardstock (with opal, clear foil) and then painted them with watercolors. Oh, it was fun! I really like the cheerful outcome. The bee and the sentence were foiled with rosy-gold foil, to make them pop off the background. This is the essence of “sweet cardlet” for me – small, easy to make and cute.

1020Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny09

My second project is a small tag, with a background made the same way, as on my cardlet, I just used other combination of colors. I love the artsy look of watercolors in this project!

1020Week3-AgnieszkaPosluszny07

Designer Tip:  Try to use different foil colors in one project – it adds a lot of an interest to it.

 

Here is the Spellbinders video showing amazing new samples as well as a walkthrough of the entire collection.
