Introducing Shadowbox Vignettes Blog Hop


3D Depth and Dimension are the order of the day!  Hi there, today we are sharing with you a great new collection by Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace with a blog hop featuring Shadowbox Vignettes.  It is a followup to her popular 3D Vignettes and at the core of the collection are a set of Shadowbox Frames that will allow you to make a frame any size you can furnish the paper for that sports a face that is 1/2", 3/4" or 1"

Whether you are hanging your kids' artwork on the fridge with a lightweight frame changed out every season or if you are sending your glorious dimensional cards is a frame with a lid - there are so many ways to use these Shadowbox Vignettes dies.  In fact, we think they are a great addition to your crafting toolbox.  If you've looked at the die and cannot quite imagine how it goes together, well never fear, there is a video for that and I'll show it at the end of my post.  The video has extra 3D inspired projects not seen here, so be sure to have a peek or even fast forward to the end.

About 3D Shadowbox Vignettes

Layered Die sets were introduced with 3D Vignettes and people quickly realized you could use them standing alone in cards or you could use them layered together in a diorama.  Shadowbox Vignettes continues the tradition and as you might guess, the layering sets can be used in both Shadowbox Vignettes and 3D Vignettes.  In addition to the 3 core adjustable frames and the four layering sets, Becca has designed a host of embellishments sized to fit your frames as well as your standalone cards.  We're particularly tickled by the easel (necessary to stand a shadowbox frame on a desk) that also transforms into a pocket or a basket.

My Projects For Today.



Here is what the die actually looks like.




I created a birthday card with 3D cafe scene. I die cut twice Cafe (in silver and in off white) and adhered both on 3D tape slightly off center to create a shadow. I added the inside umbrella parts (pink ones) on 3D tape (I cut it in to squares). Then I die cut twice Friends Forever (in sliver and in pink) and glued them together creating a shadow and then added on a top of Cafe on 3D tape.








Here is what the actual die looks like:





I created a Mother's Day card. Here in the UK, Mother's Day is in March. I die cut twice the frame, in white and in blue, and adhered both on 3D tape. I also used 3D tape to add the inside panel where I stamped the sentiment.



Here is what the actual die looks like:



I created a box for chocolate using the Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 1/2'' border. The outside size of the frame, that I created for this box, is 8-7/8'' by 4-3/4''. To create the panels for this box you will need to die cut four stripes. Two stripes size 2-1/8'' by 8-7/8'' and two stripes 2-1/8'' by 4-3/4''. 
It fits slim Lindt chocolate (size of chocolate is 7-1/2'' by 3-1/2'').


I made this chocolate gift for a man. I think it is a nice idea to give it to a man instead of a card. I always find difficult to create a card for a man :-) 
Inside I created a simple pocket where a note with greetings can be placed.


This is how it looks without chocolate.


This is the front.


I decorated my both cards with the new flowers. I used Spellbinders S4-982 - Cinch and Go Flowers IV.



Availability:
These dies are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE
