Life is Beautiful All Occasion GReeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a lovely and romantic styled greeting card I created with some sweet chippies and pretty patterned papers and flowers.

Life Is Beautiful All Occasion Greeting Card

 

Here’s how I created the card….

I selected these chippies because the window opening was just the perfect size to frame the image I chose from the patterned paper. Additional flourish pieces will be layered on top.

I gave a base coat of flat white to all the pieces….even the ones I planned to finish with embossing.

Once the flourishes were dry I added white embossing powder with flecks of pink and gold. After heat setting it’s a lovely shabby finish.

A layer of velum behind the window panes gives a sheer look and a base to add pink confetti for a faux shaker card look.

Oodles of pretty coordinating flowers and ribbon trim.

Sentiment banner layered over the larger flourish.

You can never have too many flowers so I added a few here to balance the arrangement on the bottom.  Small loopy twine bow to soften the corner.

This card is available in the Etsy Shop…..Life Is Beautiful All Occasion Greeting Card.

Nature’s Sketchbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display

Standard

Well hello there Paper Peeps. So very thrilled to be sharing my first Petaloo project for 2017.  I’m combining The gorgeous Petaloo blooms with Nature Sketchbook from Graphic 45 and I must say it’s a match made in heaven : )

Natures Skethcbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display Polly's Paper Studio 01

This spinning shadow box display has four separate compartments to fill with lovely nature scenes. The base has a mechanism to allow it to be spun using the crystal knob on top so the 4 sides can be viewed easily.

The top is finished with coordinating papers patterns, a raised center section embellished with altered chipboard, roping and the crystal knob.  I’ve also topped off the shadowbox sections with the Graphic 45 Staples Door Pulls.  You can see I’ve  tucked in a bit of moss to line the bottom of the box to add further nature inspired accent.

Each side has a different but coordinating look loaded with cut aparts from the papers and a veritable garden of flowers.

Taking advantage of the depth of the box I incorporated  many of the paper pieces with spacers and curves to create a fully dimensional display and to allow room for flowers to be tucked behind the papers.

The altered chipboard elements are added to the shadowbox  frame and provide additional places to embellish with the flowers to bring the display out of the box. Natures Skethcbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display Polly's Paper Studio 06
Last but not least a bit of seam binding in coordinating colors to soften the edges of the cards.

I’m so excited for this project to be displayed at the Petaloo booth at Creativiation ( formerly CHA)  I hope the attendees enjoy seeing it there and maybe even give it

a spin. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

1 Layout 3 Ways For BoBunny

Standard

Hey there BoBunny Peeps! So much fun to be posting my first project here for 2017.  I created my “1 Layout 3 Ways” with a generously donated picture of this sweetest little girl Liddy. She’s my BFF Kathy’s Granddaughter and she is just soooo adorable.

Sweet Liddy Scrapbook Layout by Ginny Nemchak using BoBunny Felicity Collection

For layout (1) I’m using paper patterns from the Felicity Collection. I’ve added a light rubbing of Pentart Creamy Acrylic Metallic Paint in Rose then used the Brocade Stickable Stencil and Silver Contour Liner to add a subtle script pattern. Die cuts from the patterned paper, fussy cut clocks and elements from the Felicity Noteworthy set all layered to accent the picture.

Deluxe Retro Valentine Creativity Kit

Standard

Hey there my Peeps! Hope your 2017 is off to a fantastic start . We’ve just gotten back for our holiday break to the beach and although I am not a fan of the cold…I am a huge fan of getting back to my shop to create Valentine projects.  Of course I whipped up a new holiday kit with loads of pretty patterned papers and images and bows….but I said to myself “hey self…wouldn’t it be way more funner to add flowers and tinsel and die cuts and banners and embossed panels and gold cord???”  So I did!!!!  And I was right…it was more fun : )  I’ve got 4 projects done so far and 2 more blocked out on the table just waiting to be glued together.

Kiss Kiss Valentine Shaker Tag Holiday Home Decor

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and I’ve got a very sweet Valentine treat for you! It’s a shaker tag created with the oh so cool Hello Word Frames.

So much cuteness here I can hardly stand it!!!!! The secret to the success of this project is that the frame has straight sides to make it easy to cut the foam…otherwise I’d be in a big mess and glued to the project. Okay…I did glue myself to it….but that happens to me all the time.

I’ve pulled out all the sparkly bits and trims for this because that’s what Valentine is for.

I intentionally adhered the sequins around the edge for equal distribution of the colors and shapes. There’s hearts inside and pretty mint along with some holiday postage stamp cut outs.  I didn’t want all the sequins to get squished behind the large stamps.

I finished off this tag with a charming little banner in mint to coordinate with the sequins.
Here’s how I made the shaker….

I started with the Hello Word Frame with the heart cut outs and a few patterns of holiday paper. There’s also some repurposed packaging from the flowers and foam that I traced and cut to fit.

I gave the chippie a base coat of white acrylic paint then used my dabber and pen to apply adhesive to the heart section. Next I sprinkled on the red glitter embossing powder and set it with the heat tool.
I glued the layers together with the sequins and stamps inside, then covered the edges with tinsel trim. Then I added it to my tag and layered on all the embellies.

I’m so pleased with how this turned out!!!! I think I’ll be making shakers with the rest of the frames from the package : )
