Making Valentine’s and Listening to Lord of the Rings

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Back again today to share the results of my crafty day of Valentine card making.  I used the ephemera from the Simple Stories Romance Collection along with a few bits and bobs from my stash. I got all the paper pretties out and started The Lord of the Rings Audio Book to listen to and before you know it…..I had a big ol pile of holiday cards! Yes I know I’m  geek….but in my defense I do live in a house of all boys so the entertainment selections are not very girlie lol.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Did I mention that I love to create Valentines? I mean….I think you all have figured it out by now. So many flowers and bows and hearts…and if you’re lucky some sweet treats and snuggles. What’s not to like????

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This has all the important parts right?

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Inspiration comes from this fabby paper collection So Loved from Photoplay.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I’ve used darker matting and spacers between the layers for added depth and to keep it from looking busy.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

Pretty poofy bow topped with twine and a vintage button and accented with a lovely bird charm.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

In place of my usual die cut doily I’m using an altered chipboard frame finished off in a ballerina pink acrylic paint. I’ve added a second sweet sentiment to the top and clipped it on for good measure.

So. Many. Flowers. Tucking in some die cut leaves and tiny loopy twine bows builds up this arrangement and Stickling on the leaves adds just a hint of sparkle.

Family Inspired Greeting Card with G45

Standard

Hey there my Peeps! I’m taking a little break today from the Valentine projects to share a very vintagy inspired card created with the fabulous Penny’s Paper Doll Family collection from Graphic 45.

Family Greeting Card All Occasion Polly's Paper Studio 01

This collection is so much fun to work with. Anddddd easy to layer. You all know how much I love my layers.

I also love flowers. Lots and lots of flowers.

Vintagy keys and buttons are the perfect accents along with a warm and richly colored satin ribbon.

This chipboard frame and sentiment is finished to coordinate with the keys. The tiny clip also matches perfectly! These sweet little  stamp images are popped up on spacers and help to make a smallish focal image carry a little more weight.

Family Greeting Card All Occasion Polly's Paper Studio 05

I always like to include a few extra flowers to balance a larger arrangement.

Finishing the inside of the card is the right thing to do in my humble opinion .

Shabby Chic Valentine Cherub Cards and Tag with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello there Peeps! I’m happy to announce that we have a bit of a warm up here in Michigan. This morning it’s 52 degrees. This does good things for my disposition. I was in such a better mood that I was inspired to throw myself into Valentine projects.

I printed myself a copy of the Valentine Post Cards and Tags Digital Collage Sheet from our shop and created 3 very shabby and vintagy projects.

Be Mine Vintage Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This card has a very untraditional color scheme. I coordinated the papers to the wrap on the cherub. Altered chipboard, flowers, twine, sequins, and metal embellishments are the perfect accents.

Shabby Chic Valentine Doves Tag Polly's Paper Studio 01

A sweet and simple tag has soft colors and vintagy finishing touches. Using spacers between the layers build depth and interest.

Shabby Chic Valentine Cherub Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

The cherub tag on this card inspired the peachy pink colors from the paper patterns.  Stickles added sparingly brings out the details on the vintagy image. I layered die cuts here and a rather generously sized flower arrangement.

Please enjoy this video tutorial I’ve created for this card…..

Heart and Soul Valentine Wall Hanging

Standard

Hey there peeps! Ginny here to share a very whimsical and sweet Valentine wall hanging.

Isn’t this the most charming Charlie with his knickers and bow tie???
He’s got  heart shaped balloons with a glittery edge.
This Tryptich has a crackle finish and is lined with coordinating papers.  Two very poofy bows with twine and buttons secure the hanger to the wall hanging.
Gorgeous flowers, tinsel trim, and sequins are perfectly coordinating details.
Wheels added to the tryptick creates a bit of a gypsy wagon effect and are accented with pearly topped brads. Last but not least vintage buttons and a chipboard sentiment.
Here’s how I altered the chipboard…..

1. Select chipboard and wipe clean. 2. Trace background onto patterned paper. 3 Add second line just inside the outline and clip out on the inside line. 4. Adhere paper to base.

5. Check to make sure the base is completely covered with the patterned paper. 6. Paint chipboard with metallic silver acrylic paint. 7. Add a layer of crackle medium to the top of frame and follow the directions for the specific crackle you use. 8 Once dry add a coat of white acrylic paint and allow to dry again to reveal the cracks.
