Happy New Year’s Greeting Cards with On This Day from BoBunny with Video

Standard

Hey There Peeps!

Ginny here to share two cards  made from the same collection. In fact they are made from the same sheet from the new On This Day collection.  Two cards with two very different looks…..

For the first card I went all out with the layers and embellishments.  The sweet little snowman was the inspiration.

I created loads of added detail and texture with mixed media supplies and stencils. The 3D powder added to the snowman creates a frosty look. All the papers were edged with Pearlescents in Brilliant Blue.

I fussy cut snowflakes from the reverse side of the 12 x 12 sheet and added brads to create perfectly coordinating embellishments. To accent the edge of the image I applied a generous coat of Silver Glitter Paste.

I divided the Double Dot Flourish into two parts and added a bit to the top and bottom corners. Last but not least layered paper and crocheted flowers with ribbon and twine. A sprinkling of matching sequins to finish off this card.

For the second card I’m still using the images from the January sheet but this time going in a much more restrained direction.

I’m calling this a “woodland” inspired look mostly because there’s a woodland in the image behind the tag.

I brought in Double Dot papers in dot and chevron that coordinates with the tag.  I’ve alternated the scale of the patterns to keep it from getting busy. Spacers between the layers builds in depth and dimension.

Instead of one large doily I added two smaller ones and added them in an offset orientation.

Double Dot Jewels and clear sequins add detail without being over-the-top-busy.

New Year’s Greeting Cards with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well as you can see I’m late getting my post up again lol. Blame it on the nog and cookies : ) Or blame it on me sleeping in???? Either way I think it was worth the wait.

I’ve created some really sweet and vintagy New Year’s Greeting cards with the new Dollar Download Vintage New Years Printable from our shop.  I like the idea of New Year’s cards for just that holiday….but they come in very handy if you’ve just not gotten out all the Christmas cards….or drat forgot someone on your list and got a card from them ( it happens to all of us)  I think this is a good recovery.

Winter Survival Gift Box BoBunny

Standard

Hello there  Peeps!  Well I’m happy to say that the holiday season is upon us. Sadly that also means that winter is upon us. There is one way to combat the elements and that is with a winter survival box filled with essential supplies to get you through. For today’s project I’m turning that idea into a present by tucking all the supplies into a handcrafted gift box using the Carousel Christmas paper collection. Another great thing about this project is I’m re-purposing a box from the recycling bin hooray!!!

I think this combination of pinks and greens is shabby…but updated and fresh.

I’ve piled on the fussy cut images to create a nice full arrangement. Adding the layers with spacers helps to keep it from looking busy.

Painted and glittered chipboard snowflakes really adds a lovely texture and great detail.

Santa’s hat was glammed up with Sugar Glitter Paste…because glitter makes everything better : )

The sides and back are finished with the patterned papers.

Now it’s time to fill up the box. I’m adding tissues, sunblock, hand sanitizer, and a hydrating lip balm. This is a great gift for teachers or local postal peeps. I’ve created survival packs for the woman who directs traffic at the school during drop off and pick up times and she really appreciated the supplies.   You could also fill the box with baked treats, a small gift, or gift card.

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

You are Amazing Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there  Peeps! Ginny here to share a card I created with some of my fave chippies from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  I mean… to be fair I love all the frames. But sometimes just the right  frame is  the perfect addition to a project.

I feel like this card is so sweet and whimsical with the fairy and butterfly.

The chipboard layered in creates so much depth and texture.

I’ve added a few additional elements like vintage buttons and vintagy metal keys.

Spacers between the layers to build up the scene and keep it from looking busy.

Okay..maybe it’s a little busy…but in a totally fabulous way!

A proper fairy card needs loads of flowers and I think we have the perfect amount! I’ve also tucked in some ribbon and twine to fill in this arrangement.

Picking just the right chippies….

Adding sparkle to the stars with antique gold embossing powder then adding heat to set the powder.

The frame is finished with pink embossing powder that has just a bit of gold flake in it. It was a bit too large so I snipped it in half to fit the card perfectly.

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

Advent Calendar with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m super sorry about this post going up so late. I planned to work on it last night so it could go live this morning……but we were out shoveling very late  and I was too tired to edit the video we prepared for this project.

I am really excited though to share this project. I created an advent calendar for my Dear Hubby. He loves really good beer so he will be getting one for each day of the 12 days of Christmas as a special reward just for him.

Advent Calendar Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using Echo Park papers with a fun retro vintage vibe.

Tiny envelopes create the pockets to tuck in the bingo cards with numbers on the back.

Fussy cut stickers are festive accents. This pocket even has twine wrapped around.

Loads of altered chipboard for dimension. Sequins are a fun detail to add and looks a bit like snowflakes.

Advent Calendar Polly's Paper Studio 05

I’ve added glitter to a few of the sentiment stickers and bling to the chipboard. You can never have enough bling…especially at Christmas.

Last but not least jingle bells, buttons, ribbon trims, and a wooden clothespin.

 

Please enjoy this video we’ve prepared on how I created the base for this advent calendar….

Standard

Hey there everyone and welcome to another fun hop with the peeps at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

blog hop

We’re creating project with the December Ribbon Club Assortment Back to Basics.a2f9d-back2bto2bbasics2bdecember2bribbon2bclub2bassortment

I think it’s very classic and sophisticated.

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

I created a card that’s very stylish and even almost modern.

I am not afraid to use dark colors on Christmas cards and I think this palate is very updated and mature.

Of course I’m still including pretty dimensional flowers like these magnolias. I’ve given them a bit of a face lift but switching out the stamens and adding a bit of faux snow on the petals.

I’ve layered a black doily under the arrangement to showcase the altered chipboard and patterned papers.

This bow is really quite fabulous topped with jingle bells and tiny brush trees.

Last but not least I’ve added a fair few vintage buttons. Just because it’s modern inspired doesn’t mean it cant have some classic details right?

Okay the next stop in the hop is Cheryl.

Jingle Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps and frosty friends! I am allll about creating Christmas projects using the fabby trims and flowers from RRR.

 This little snow globe is too cute.  It was the inspiration for the color scheme on this card.

Perfectly coordinated ribbons and flowers. These are new to the shop and I already love them.

I’ve added a little sparkle with the sequins and clipped on a sentiment tag. There’s also a cute little die cut doily tucked in.
