Not All Who Wander Card Collection

Standard

Sooooo I created these cards and totally forgot to post them. How on earth did that een happen???  I’m usually so excited to share things that I have to stop myself from posting 5 times a day lol. I just happened to spot them when I was scrolling my Instagram feed and boom there they were like little lost orphans : ( So today is the day for them, finally lol.

I’ve been challenging myself to make some cards that art not quite as poofy so they are easier to mail in a regular envelope. This is so hard for me with all the pretties at hand that I want to attach.  This is a good compromise though……just enough without being too much.

More washi and handcrafted flowers with pretty brad centers. The kraft doily looks amazing with the black borders and tiffany blue and gold stripe tape.

I am super in love with this bicycle tag!!!! Also I added a layer of vintagy washi tape to act as a border…..and it matches perfectly to this Carta Bella paper.adventure-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

Vintage train tag???  Don’t mind if I do!  These polka dotty flowers are coordinating so perfectly!  It’s a little bit masculine…..but still having a lot of detail.

The best thing about these beauties aside from the fact that fit nicely in an envelope….they are really great for any occasion.

These cards are all available in the shop.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Sport Themed Party Décor for BoBunny

Standard

It’s party time Paper Peeps!  I’ve got a fun selection of sport themed party décor created with the new Game On collection.  There’s a festive banner with multiple sports represented, pennant picks to dress up baked goodies, and jazzed up straws in a box decorated with a banner and crinkle cut filler.

Isn’t this a fun grouping?  I love all the little coordinating details.

I used the Lasur Gel Stain in Chestnut to add color to a tiny box that came in the mail with washi tape. Because the box was shiny the finish has a mottled effect that looks a bit like wood grain. I filled it with floral foam and added crinkle cut kraft paper then inserted the straws that were decorated with  a sport tag simply by cutting notches on the top and bottom and sliding the straw through.  Additional stars are used to accent the tags. They were leftovers from the die cuts that are added to the banner. This display would make a great centerpiece.

Can’t get any easier than adding pennants to long wooden picks and inserting them into baked treats.

I choose to represent all the sports for this banner with a section for each and strung them together with coordinating ribbon and fussy cut tickets hung between.

For a consistent look I used the same background paper and striped topper. Orange borders tie the whole thing together.

It’s very important to remember to use metal eyelets at the tops of banner to keep the ribbons from pulling through.  Adding the die cut stars helps to add texture and detail.

Soooo many layers! These banner sections have a lot of depth and dimension with the spacers between the layers.
Okay that’s all for me. We are ready to get our party on!!! Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Hey there Paper Peeps!  I know I have thoughts of Spring as it’s been a long cold Winter. I created this card with bright cheerful colors, and a gorgeous selection of flowers.

I’ve chosen shades of purple for this card inspired by the gorgeous flowers.  Sadly I am not a very good gardener so all my flowers have to be Petaloo.

Oh my goodness there is so much texture here!!!! I’ve layered many types of flowers here and tucked in ribbon and twine and coordinating butterflies.

I’ve tucked in some altered chipboard and die cuts to enhance the floral theme.  These colors are bright and the patterns are busy so I used a solid purple cardstock to act as borders. Think Spring Vintage Inspired Greeting Card Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio 04

Additional flowers and butterfly here to balance the other arrangement.  The paper has been tattered and stitched and I added pearly accents for detail.

This paper from Graphic 45 was a nearly perfect match. I did alter the fairy just by using watercolor pencils and sparkle pens to color her wings and dress.

Steampunk Expedition Greeting Card with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps!  I’ve got a little steampunk inspiration coming your way inspired by some gorgeous masculine papers with hot air balloons. I pulled out some of my favorite steampunk chippies from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and loads of mixed media supplies and beautiful flowers.

Here’s a look at how I altered the chippies….

The most important thing is to select chipboard that will enhance your project.

Even if I’m going to finish the chippies with dark colors I base coat them in flat white paint.

I used a very thick coat of Iron Paste from Pentart and allowed to dry. Next I globbed on 3D Matte Gel from art basics to add a lumpy bumpy texture, then heat set to encourage the bubbling.

Using a cosmetic sponge I dabbed and smooshed on loads of alcohol inks.

I finished up the card with flowers, micro beads and twine.

Additional Supplies used~ art basics -3D Matte Gel, Finnabair-Bronze Micro Beads,  Pentart-Iron Paste, Ranger Adirondack -Pitch Black & Rust, Ranger Alcohol Ink-Butterscotch & Stream & Copper.
Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G

Make a Splash Cards with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there BoBunny Peeps! Today I’m taking a walk on the wild side with two cards created with the amazing new Make A Splash Collection.   If you like bright colors, fun patterns and really adorable penguins….this is the collection for you.

I totally want to go on a beach hut vacay with these little dudes! This card was inspired by the oh so cute little cabana houses that I fussy cut from the 12 x 12 patterned papers.  There’s elements from Noteworthy and the coordinating Layered Chipboard Stickers.

I used quite a lot of foam tape and spacers to give lots of dimension to this fun card. The banner on the top was a fussy cut element from the 12 x 12 cut apart sheet.  What a great way to bring the color to the top of the card. The little twine bow was tinted with the Lasur Stain in Chestnut which gives it a more beachy feel.

I used the same Lasur stain to color the cheesecloth for a faux fishnet effect.  This card also has the super fabulous glitter sunglasses which are so cool and I want a pair for myself! I used hot glue to adhere the fishnet and to cover the goo globs I topped it off with  coordinating buttons.

This card just makes me all kinds of happy : ) Maybe it’s the sun and palm trees that we are lacking here this time of year in Michigan? I could definitely use some warm sand beach time right about now!!!!!

Please enjoy this tutorial I’ve prepared for you so you can make some fun in the sun cards for yourself with Make a Splash.

 

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