Hope Shabby Chic Vintage Tag

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps!  Dropping in today to share a very vintagy and shabby tag today created with the Triptych chippie and lots of mixed media supplies.

Hope Shabby Chic Vintage Tag

 

I really into pinks and gold this season. It’s so pretty and romantic : )

There’s a garden of flowers of course.

Subtle background and mixed media finishes.

Thoughtful sentiment  banner tucked in.

Here’s how I made it….

Start by selecting chippies.

I gave the triptych and a base coat of white. The background is a stencil of gold chevron that has an additional layer of white over top to knock the pattern back a bit. Liquid Pearls give dimension to the Hypericum Berries.

Using my finger I dabbed a bit of Frayed Burlap to the bumpy parts then a bit of a Platinum Stickles for sparkle.

A dry brushing of the gold paint for the top layer of the triptych then adhered to the base. The clock is painted out in white with a generous coat of clear crackle…then allowed to dry.

Using string glue adhere the chippies to create a base for the flowers.

All dressed up with the flowers and sentiment. Finished off with a bit of faux snow medium .

Retro Easter Wall Hanging

Standard

Hey there Peeps!  I was waiting impatiently for a delivery yesterday so to make the time go a bit faster I created a new Easter Collage sheet full of sweet retro inspired images on striped tags. I was so smitten with it I had to print one out right away and create a project.

It’s pretty adorable if I do say so myself.  I used a burlap banner shape from Canvas Corp for the background and layered on a wood grain pattern and a bright and cheerful yellow stripe to coordinate with the printed tag.

A garden of white and yellow flowers layered over cheese cloth and a die cut banner.

Sweet bunny tag printed and raised with spacers. This allows space for an eyelet and twine and a little yellow clip.  There’s a polka dot die cut with actual vintage buttons and additional tiny blooms.

This wall hanging is easy to display on the tinsel hanger topped off with chevron ribbon and twine bows with more buttons.

I just love finishing off the tag with some carefully placed Stickles to accent the details.

Believe & Love Faith Greeting Card

Standard

Happy first of the month RRR Peeps!  You know it’s my day to share a project created with the new Ribbon Club Assortment. This month it’s Pink and Green Mix which is sooo perfect to go with some new papers I just got and I am a happy crafter!

Isn’t that a lovely bright cheerful collection??? It inspired this card……

I couldn’t have gotten a better match if I picked the ribbons out myself.   This card has layers of patterned papers and a garden of flowers and a lovely faith or inspirational journal card.

I’m not even going to try to tell you that I tried to limit the flowers I added here….because clearly more is better anyway.

I layered the ribbons over top of the already busy paper and I love it that much more.

Just a little snippet of the pink ribbon here cut at an angle and tucked under the flowers is just the right touch.  Altered and layered chipboard frames are fairly neutral so as to compliment and not compete with the busy papers.

OMGosh OMGosh OMGosh I added some sparkly bits with the clear glass beads which adds sooo much texture and shine.

This busy combination required a fair amount of spacers between the layers to keep everything from getting jumbled up.   The bright cheerful colors of this card along with the inspirational sentiment just makes me so happy : )
