Spooky Slimline Halloween Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps. Ginny here with some spooktacular inspiration.

I am bewitched by this sweet little Halloween friend. Did you see what I did there? Bewitched?

This is the A Little Scary collection from Fancy Pants Designs. I picked up the ephemera pack along with the paper pad and had so much fun layering up all the festive images.

The slimline profile is great for adding an extra large arrangement of made by me flowers.

The wrinkle ribbon coordinates perfectly and helps to fill in and anchor this corner.

Pair of Thank You Cards with Mintay Happy Place

Standard

Hey there friends! I’ve got a pair of cards to share today that I created with the Happy Place collection from Mintay Papers.

I just love those sweet and soft pastel color palate. It’s really bright and cheerful!

I’m working with the pink tones for this card. The focal image is a 3 x 4 journal card cut into a tag shape with a stitched edge die. Not only does this give it a more unique shape it also helps to make the image smaller so I can add all my favorite layering.

I created a faux frame for this card using a square die that adds the stitching lines on the inside and outside of the cut. It’s popped up on spacers for loads of dimension and the fussy cut hot air balloon is displayed inside and surrounded buy loads of pretty coordinating florals.

Wont you join me for a tutorial?

Too Cute to Spook Halloween Card

Standard

Hey there friends! I’m getting so excited about my upcoming 13 Days of Halloween series on my YouTube channel. Of course I have my supplies all ready and waiting to create the fun and festive projects. I simply could not wait to get into that crafty stash so I created a few Halloween cards to tide me over.

I’m working with the A Little Scary collection from Fancy Pants Designs. It’s just so darn cute! This is the 6 x 8 inch paper pad and the ephemera pack.

A large die is used to cut a border of stars revealing the pumpkin colored cardstock below. I used strips of the patterned paper to create my own design then topped it with an oval frame and sweet little witch.

These flowers are all handmade by me from off cuts of the cardstock and some additional patterned papers. This generously sized arrangement is filled in with glittery cobweb printed netting, die cut glittery stars and loopy twine bows. A chunky loopy bow of bold check ribbon anchors the corner.

Coming by to Say Boo Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with another fun hop with the crew at Really Reasonable Ribbon!

We’re sharing the projects we created with the September Halloween Ribbon Club Assortment.

You should be coming to me from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. If you’re just joining in you’ll want to hop on over there to start at the beginning.

I’ve been having fun teaching myself to color and using fun and festive holiday themed stamps to create scene cards.

The story on this card is of a sweet little witch in what might be a spooky graveyard but the addition of the string lights and smiling cat creates a not so scary vignette.

Also how cute are those little bats and pumpkins? They are frightfully delightful!

The perfect finishing touch is the coordinating layered bow, metal charms, and matching sequins.

Your next stop on the hop is my dear friend Kathy.

Grateful & Blessed Fall Mini Album for Renea Bouquets

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps!

Ginny here and I’m so very excited to be sharing my first project that I’ve created as Guest Designer for September. It’s such an honor to be joining the team of super creative designers. Getting to work with such beautiful supplies was a real joy! I made a Fall inspired mini album. I’m using the Harvest Meadow paper collection that coordinates  with my Renea Bouquets supplies.

Grateful and Blessed Mini Album

I think that sweet Little Scarecrow  really makes the perfect focal image.  It fits perfectly in the Simply Beautiful Frame. I loved the neutral finish on the frame so I left it unaltered. 

A generously sized arrangement of autumnal flowers really anchors this corner.  I’ve mixed in some loopy twine bows to fill in the display and added some extra sweet rose buds.

This album is fairly large so I was able to include a second arrangement to the top for balance. 

That  layer of the beautiful Venetian embroidered Lace provides so much texture and the warm vintagy tone matches perfectly. A few final details for the cover are of course the iconic Renea Bouquets Butterflies and Iridescent Pearls in Midnight Blue.

The detail moves right on in to the inside of the book with the Fancy Fall Corner Set. The generous sized surface allowed for a finish of heat set multi tonal embossing powder in a bronze metallic palate. 

When the tags are removed from the pockets you can see the lace detail on the base of the book.  It looks very striking against the mustard yellow patterned paper. 
Here’s a few details of the rest of the book:

So that’s my first project created for September. I hope you enjoyed seeing it as much  I did making it.  Thank you Renea for such a generous selection of crafty supplies to create with.

Thank You For Being So Sweet Slimline Card

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with pretty slimline card perfect for just about any occasion.

This is the Simple Vintage Lemon Twist collection from Simple Stories. It is divine! From the color palate to the patterns and vintagy images.

The slimline profile gives me room to stack up more of these pretty papers. I used a slimline die to give the base a scalloped edge for extra detail.

To help the layering to be more interesting I used different shaped dies to cut them out then added spacers between the layers.

So many gorgeous flowers here arranged with die cut foliage, loopy twine bows and gold netting. Last but not least it’s finished off with perfectly matching satin ribbon and metal charm.

Gnome Fall Mini Album

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Time again for another fun hop with the crew at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

We’re sharing the projects we created with the Autumn Collection Ribbon Club Assortment.

You should be coming to me from the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog. If you’re just joining in you’ll want to hop over there to start at the beginning.

I created a fun and festive Gnome themed Fall mini album…..

The inspiration for this project was the fun layered gnome stickers I picked up from the Dollar Tree.

I had such a great time combining the patterned papers.

Tip ins create so much more usable space. Something every mini needs!

I created faux frames by die cutting the papers into ovals with nesting dies that have a stitched edge detail.

I love the more vintagy palate of these papers. Images that are more stylized makes the collection look a little more current.

I had just enough stickers in the set to include one on every set of pages.

The gold foiling on the papers really helps to dress it up.

Smile All Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hello friends and crafty peeps!

I’m working with the Berrylicious collection from Mintay Papers for this card. Even though the palate is red white and blue it really does not appear to be patriotic.

I’m just loving that image with the berries and sweet little bird. Just so perfectly summery!

When choosing the flowers for this arrangement I decided to coordinate with the lightest shade on that faux wood grain background. These flowers are all from RRR. I’ve Frankenflowered them deciding to replace stamens and pull off layers to get the right shades and dimension. It’s finished off with die cut foliage, loopy twine bows and wrinkle ribbon.

Hello There Greeting Card

Standard

Hello my friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a sweet summer inspired greeting card.

I really love these cheerful colors. Even though today will be warm here in Michigan we have rain in the fore cast so it’s a bit gloomy. This palate will brighten my day!

This collection is from a paper pad with loads of mix and match patterns so I can combine them to my hearts content.

I’ve added a garden full of flowers here all WOC from Really Reasonable Ribbon. There’s also a sweet little butterfly fussy cut and tucked into the arrangement. Die cut foliage, netting, and loopy twine bows complete the card.
