All I want for Christmas Tag Set BoBunny

Standard

Hey there  Peeps! Ginny here to share a very sweet Christmas tag set. Carousel Christmas has fast become my favoritest holiday collection!  Creating with it has been such a joy.

All I Want for Christmas Tag Set

When I started, I really only planned to make one really large, detailed tag….but while the collection was on the work table I couldn’t help myself but to make two more.

 Must add all the layers!!!! So many great images to fussy cut (which I love to do by the way.) which gives such awesome texture and depth.

 Blingy bits and ribbon are a must have on all fun and festive tags!

 I used a fair amount of spacers to build up this arrangement and keep it from looking like a big hot Christmas mess.  The ephemera pack had lovely coordinating ribbons in two sizes and who am I to say no to ribbon? never gonna happen….  The larger bow is topped off with a Double Dot Brad.

I’ve added a die cut doily to soften the edges as well as a bit of cheesecloth.  A couple of sequins and some faux snow accent and this tag is ready to add to a gift or a tree.

 Did I mention bonus tags? These were really fun to create and even though they are smaller…they really pack a lot of punch with all the holiday details.

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

Grow Where You are Planted Halloween Decor Shadow Box Guest Design for Alpha Stamps

Standard

Hey there Peeps! So excited to be sharing the project I created as a guest designer for Alpha Stamps. They sent me oodles of fabby Halloween paper pretties and supplies and I just could not hardly wait to play.

ginnyn-Grow Where You Are Planted Halloween Shadow Box 1

I used  the Little Ghouls Kit from Alpha Stamps along with some bits and pieces from my stash to create this fun Halloween decor Shadow Box. The kit is chock full of vintagy images, patterned papers, holiday emebllies, and chipboard.

ginnyn-Grow Where You Are Planted Halloween Shadow Box 2

I created the shadow box itself with a basic chipboard frame and created boxes for each section then added it to a super sturdy base. The frame was then painted with crackle paint. Each section has a pattern of paper from the kit. These little moon  charms are really fun and make a great accent dangling from  bakers twine and adhered behind coordinating flowers.

Going with  a spooky garden theme I created bat flowers growing on copper stems with itty bitty buttons and charms added.  The little gardener chap has a wheelbarrow to harvest his crop and fanciful wings, altered chipboard gate, and a mossy field to plant in.

Additional holiday characters are displayed in their own environment with chippies, flowers, paper rosettes, sequins, and fun charms from Alpha Stamps.

Star garland and glittery strips add texture and brings the design out onto the front of the frame. The trick to adding layers of vintagy images is to include foam spacers for depth.

You can see from this angle how dimensional this shadow box is.  What fun to play with this kit. Thanks so much to Alpha Stamps for letting me join your team as guest this month and for the generous dt box full of awesome supplies.

I really love plaid. I mean like a lot. Really. I will plaid anything that stands still.

This crow is just so cool. It’s layered over a vintagy clock which for some reason made me think of the expression Time Flies. Isn’t funny that phrases stick in your head?

There’s Petaloo flowers here along with handcrafted paper flowers, and even one I created with metal.

These die cut feathers really fill in the arrangement and give it height….it also looks pretty cool right? They’re layered over a spiderweb and netting.

Haunted Dress Shop with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps. Ginny here to share a Halloween project created with some fabby chippies from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

It’s a haunted dress shop!!! How fun is that?

I’m using the frame to the Coffin Box to create a bit of a shadow box.

There’s a glittery flourish layered over a fussy cut spiderweb.

Flowers with netting add a great texture.

The dress form has a spooky inspired outfit on all ready for a Halloween party.

I wiped down the chippies to prepare them for finishing.

A little trick I’ve learned while cutting down paper to fit inside something is to add a bit of a folded tab so you can easily pull the paper out if you need to until you get the shape trimmed just right.

Painting the coffin box lid and flourish frame with a creamy acrylic in metallic black.

Now adding silvery embossing powder then heat setting.

Beginning the outfit with a striped patterned paper.

Using a doily patterned paper to create a skirt.

Two layers of doily topped off with a spiderwebby pattern on velum.

Many layers of foam tape to secure the dress form in the coffin shadow box. This also adds nice dimension.

Last but not least….a haunted sign and fussy cut bat.
