Welcome to my creative space!
Within the various collection introductions, Amazing Paper Grace has included sets that were inspired by classic sewing motifs. The Fluted Classics Collection is another wonderful layering shape set with ticking designs reminiscent of the blanket stitch on its edges! Nest the outer and inner rims with the insert to cut a tailored frame or for a beautiful background edge to any layering design. Keep it simple and you can cut a solid shape with just an outer rim. The Fluted Classics come in circle, square, oval, and rectangle shapes. We’ve also added a slimline version for those card makers who want to create an elegant and trendy silhouette.
Today's projects were created with dies provided by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace.
My Projects for Today:
I'm featuring the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Rectangle Die Set by Becca Feeken to create a fall themed art panel and an artist trading card with chipboard butterflies in a shadowbox frame.
These gorgeous Fluted Classics Rectangles are a perfect way to frame a beautiful decor piece. I've used the two larger dies to double frame an arrangement of mushrooms and flowers. The butterfly ATC has a shadowbox frame cut with this fabulous die set. The background on both pieces is accented with delicate stenciling. Because the frames are cut from a darker patterned paper, the gorgeous design was not as visible as I wanted, so I rubbed them with Distress Ink to help highlight the gorgeous stitch inspired design.
To create a shadowbox frame, simply cut several frames and glue them together for beautiful depth and dimension. I used this technique for the butterfly artist trading card.
More Close-Ups with Tips and Techniques:
Gorgeous mushrooms and flowers in fall colors are arranged and overlap the frame in places to create a gorgeous home decor art panel which is backed with chipboard to make a sturdy piece to display. The specimen label is adhered to the bottom right over the frame.
Here you can see how fabulous the double frame looks. The stenciled texture paste design adds lots of wonderful texture. The inking highlights the gorgeous texture in the frame so beautifully.
This shadow box frame looks like it was cut from thick chipboard, but that wouldn't be possible with these detailed etched dies. Instead I cut 5 layers of cardstock weight patterned paper, then glued them together to created the deep frame.
These lovely chipboard butterflies are colored with Distress and Distress Oxide Sprays. A paintbrush was used to apply the spray for more control.
