Find Me Where The Wild Things Are Greeting Card BoBunny

Standard

Hello there and happy Friday to all of you. How can it be Friday already? The weeks go by so fast it’s hard to keep track.  Today I have a card to share with the new  Early Bird collection from BoBunny. I am swooning over this entire set. The colors are soft and dreamy and the florals are gorgeous!

I really love that the flowers on the patterned papers are stylized so they have an updated vintagy feel.

The color scheme has soft aquas and rose shades. I matted the papers with a slightly darker aqua to keep the patterns from getting muddled.

And since you can never have too many flowers I piled them on here along with some pretty altered chipboard feathers, ribbon, and pearly headed stick pins.

There’s an additional chipboard element here and sisal to bring texture.

In the Noteworthy package of die cut elements there was a gorgeous wreath so I layered that onto a die cut doily then topped it off with the sentiment. A coordinating clip and a few pearly embellishments are the perfect finishing touch.

Forever In My Heart Cards for BoBunny

Standard

Hello there, Friends, and a happy day to you all!  I’m here to share two cards that I created with the Black Tie Affair collection. If you’re thinking I’m going classic black and white these cards might surprise you.  This collection works for shabby chic inspired projects too!

Shabby Chic Card 1  By Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Black Tie Affair and Mini Alphabet Punch Board

I’ve pulled out the whites and grays for these cards and layered them with sweet soft pink cardstock. This 6 x 6 card has loads of Noteworthy pieces and a large die cut doily.

Shabby Chic Card 1  By Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Black Tie Affair and Mini Alphabet Punch Board

To make the ribbon slide I used the Alphabet Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers and created the tops of two A’s but on opposite ends of a long strip. I simply wound the ribbon through then wrapped the tails and secured them on the back.  A few Double Dot Jewels are the perfect finishing touch!

Shabby Chic Card 2  By Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using Black Tie Affair and Mini Alphabet Punch Board

This card is A2 sized and has more of the cut aparts and a smaller die cut doily. For this ribbon slide I punched the ends like in the previous slide…but left the ends squared off. I also trimmed a bit to make it narrower so as to fit the scale better.

The scrap from the cut apart makes an excellent tag when given a coordinating metal eyelet and twine. Instead of my usual poofy bow I created a smaller ribbon embellishment with the trim  and secured it in the center with a Double Dot Brad.

I’m having loads of fun creating unique embellishments with my Alphabet Punch Board. Of  course it’s great for letters too!

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Little Women Shaker Card Graphic 45 Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello there and happy Monday to all you fine crafty friends! I’m sharing a project I created especially for the April Challenge on the G45 Community FB page. The theme for this challenge is to upcycle or recycle. Of course I’m down for this!  I love to recycle!!

Little Women Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 10

I’m using this acrylic packaging from some brads as a shaker element for a card.

Little Women Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 06 I was so happy to see that if I cut the center out of the middle of one of the ephemera cards I could slip the outside around the packaging and it fit perfectly!

Little Women Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 07

I created a bit of a base to add the center of the card to so I could sandwich in the sequins. You all know how I love my sequins!

Little Women Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 08

A garden of pretty coordinating flowers to top off the corner of the shaker.

Little Women Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 09

This poofy bow in chevron topped with twine and a vintage button are the perfect final touch for the outside of the card.

Little Women Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

Inside there’a a pocket that holds a tag with plenty of room for a gift card or small flat keepsake or memento.

The tag is a great place to add a sweet sentiment.

Please enjoy this process video I’ve created to show all the steps for creating this fun shaker card…..

Make Your Life Worth Loving Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there and happy Sunday to all of you fine friends! Ginny here to share that it’s finally showing some signs of Spring here in mid Michigan! I’m so very excited to bask in the sunshine and open the windows and maybe even fall asleep to the sound of the Spring Peepers in the big pond.

 *****Update******** As of the time of posting this Spring has apparently been canceled and we’ve woken up to freezing rain and sleet : (  So much for writing posts in advance lol.

 

 

Isn’t this a sweet vintagy sewing inspired greeting card? I’m using the chippies to create a faux frame look by tucking them into the layers. This Paper Collection is Dame from Authentique.  It’s so vintagy!!!!!

I love how the chippies anchor the focal arrangement and extends it to make it look bigger.

To balance them I’m adding a small row of pearly accents.

Loads of pretty flowers here chosen to coordinate with the vintage image.

Vintage buttons just seem so right on this sewing inspired card.

Fun number plate in white is a shabby chic inspired embellishment that’s added with twine.

This Art Deco Corner Set is my newest obsession because sometimes you want the look of a frame…but you don’t want to worry about hiding parts of it behind embellishments. Just use these where they’ll show!

I wiped them down with a cloth to prepare them for altering. They are finished with heat set embossing powder that has a lovely white and pink and gold speckle. It’s so dreamy!!!

Isn’t this so shabby? This is the Stitches collection from Authentique.  Let me just tell you now there will not be one scrap left of this collection because I will be using it all! The outside cover has loads of embellies to coordinate with the vintage sewing theme.

The inside front cover keeps some of the embellishments and has a pretty die cut doily.  Nice place to add some writing or pictures.

The first inside page has a nice large area to add photos or journaling. I used the lace sticker from the collection to make a pretty border.
