Introducing the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection Blog Hop


Welcome sweet friends, today we are introducing a new die collection by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders called Chantilly Paper Lace - you can take a quick peek of the entire collection -------> HERE.

Have you ever rummaged around in your grandmothers attic, through memories of the past to find sweet letters and cards romantically tucked away for safe keeping while preserving sweet acquaintances and conversations of the past?  Letters adorned with the finest decorations, now tattered and ripened with age, impress what an honor it was to receive these treasures. Becca reached into the past to restore some of these treasures, preserving the fine detail, the elegance and the pure femininity into modern day romantic die cuts that are at home on any card. The collection is reminiscent of petticoats, fine lace and adornments and are designed so that each die works with the other. In fact, the card front dies are designed so that they can be used alone or two can be layered over each other. Join us as each Creative Team member shares their creations with two dies from the collection.  

We are listing all of the creative team so that you don't miss a beat but don't forget, each of us will be giving away an Amazing Paper Grace die pulled from the comments - one from each blog and hint-hint you'll want to make sure you leave a comment on the Spellbinders Blog too. The prize details are at the bottom of my post. So, without further ado let me talk about the dies I get to introduce:




I created two shaped cards using Lunette Arched Borders. You can find Becca's tutorial how to use border dies to create a shaped card - here. To die cut the borders I connected two dies from this set, Lunette Insert and Top Arch Cut die. This card measures approx. 5-3/8'' high by 5-1/2'' wide. The lovely accent, Romantic Loops, which I placed at bottom of this card comes from Spellbinders S4-709 Graceful Corners One and tiny tags are from Spellbinders SDS-053 Graceful Tiny Tags Stamp and Die Set.



'Happy Birthday' card I created the same way like the first card. I just die cut one side of the card. This card measures approx. 5'' wide by 5-3/8'' high. The accent at the bottom of this card and two of the flowers are from Spellbinders S4-791 Isadora Trinkets die set.

This is a beautiful die set. The arches allow to make shaped cards as well as decorate backgrounds by using just inserts.


Second up is Spellbinders S4-819 Lilly Pearl Flat Fold Flower/Border



On my first card with Lilly Pearl die I used the die as a border. I die cut three largest borders and two medium ones and arranged them on the card. I did not cut the borders to fit the card base before gluing them down. I did it after all of them were in place. I just trimmed all at once. The decorative accent which is on this card is from Spellbinders S6-078 Regal Allure.




My second card with Lilly Pearl die is a card where I used the die as a flower. I created a beautiful lily using all three dies in this set. I also added leaves from Spellbinders S4-792 Cinch and Go Flowers Two and used Spellbinders S5-308 Hemstitch Rectangles as a background for my card. The sentiment comes from Spellbinders SDS-054 Giving Occasion Stamp and Die set.



To create lily all you need to do is fold the scored lines and fold the flower with as many petals as you like. I have eight petals as I noticed that when I was using thick patterned paper (from Blue Fern Studio) the flower closed easier with eight petals. Once the flowers is folded I added a tiny bit of glue at the very end. I twisted a bit each petal on a pencil to give a bit of dimension.


I took a few photos to show how to fold the flower. 
After folding scored lines you need to fold diagonal folds to the left and keep them on the top.


Add a bit of glue at the end on the little triangle and glue it on the top of the other end.


This is the front of the flower.


And this is the back of the flower.
