I Love You Valentine Typewriter Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there! It’s Ginny here to share a very fun and whimsical Valentine greeting card.

I mean who doesn’t like a vintage typewriter? So much better than a text message or email right?
I was lucky to have some patterned paper in my stash that had type keys and the background was red so it was a perfect match! 
This sweet little sentiment was part of that same paper pad from Martha Stewart. The crisp white doily helps to break up the busy patterns.
I chose the flowers and the polka dot ribbon to coordinate.
One more flowers for the top and a tiny little love mail charm.
Last but not least a few blingy pearls.
Finishing this chippie could not have been easier….it’s just a metallic paint in graphite. So Simple!

The World is a Canvas Greeting Card with Graphic 45 Nature Sketchbook Video

Standard

Hey there all my Peeps! I’m excited to share that I’m starting my New Years crafty goal for 2018 which is trying different color combinations and design styles.  This card has a blue and green color scheme which is a bit outside my comfort zone…but I love how it turned out! I’m using the Nature Sketchbook Collection from Graphic 45 which is one of my favorites.

The World is a Canvas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio G45 01

It’s sooooo green lol.  Just kidding…I really do like it.

The World is a Canvas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio G45 02

The idea behind this card was nature which was easy to accomplish using this collection.

The World is a Canvas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio G45 06

These Wild Orchid Crafts are dreamy. I did not hold back with the layering lol. There is a sweet little fussy cut butterfly tucked in and pretty chevron striped bow to fill in this arrangement. A bit of netting adds texture.

The World is a Canvas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio G45 03

Prills help to bring the colors in to the center focal image which is a cut apart from the collection. I just love the sentiment.

The World is a Canvas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio G45 04

This corner has a larger butterfly, more of the flowers and netting, and gold twine tied in a simple loopy bow.

The World is a Canvas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio G45 05

This clip was given a face lift with alcohol ink and now it coordinates perfectly! The chipboard frame is finished with antique gold embossing powder for a subtle shine. A bit of messy sewing lines adds texture to the patterned paper.

The World is a Canvas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio G45 08

The edges of the papers are all distressed and scrunched up which is a subtle..but effective accent. Look at all the dimension I was able to get with the layers.

Use Your Wings Large Tag

Hey there Peeps! I’m dropping in today to share a large tag I created with some of my favorite card making elements.

Use Your Wings Extra-Large Tag Polly's Paper Studio 01

I did mention it’s large right? It’s 5 1/4 x 9 inches. Go big or go home is what I say. BTW this also applies to french fries lol.

Pretty lace and trim with bling and pearls anchor the bottom of this tag and add sparkle.

Use Your Wings Extra-Large Tag Polly's Paper Studio 03

I’ve given a crackle finish to this Eiffel Tower chippie and layered a sweet sentiment on top. Matching sequins and die cut doily are the perfect accent to the textured chipboard.

The background pattern is applied with a Ranger stencil and grape colored ink. I’ve also inked the flourish die cut tucked into the flowers.

Use Your Wings Extra-Large Tag Polly's Paper Studio 06

This lovely little butterfly was the inspiration for this tag.

Use Your Wings Extra-Large Tag Polly's Paper Studio 04

I love these very purpley flowers so much I added some to the top and bottom of this tag. A bit of ribbon, and sugared berries, and Prills are the final element and I think they look great!

Classic Black and White Birthday Card

Standard

Hey Peeps! Ginny here to share a very classically styled Birthday greeting card.

The sentiment is simple with a bold graphic font.

 

Pairing stripes and florals is a striking statement in black and white.

Pretty coordinating flowers layered over the ribbon to create a nice full arrangement.

A doily die cut from flat black cardstock really anchors the sentiment and looks pretty tucked under the matching bling.

Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Diamond Satin in Black.

Wishing you a happy and productive day : ) G

Making Valentine’s and Listening to Lord of the Rings

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Back again today to share the results of my crafty day of Valentine card making.  I used the ephemera from the Simple Stories Romance Collection along with a few bits and bobs from my stash. I got all the paper pretties out and started The Lord of the Rings Audio Book to listen to and before you know it…..I had a big ol pile of holiday cards! Yes I know I’m  geek….but in my defense I do live in a house of all boys so the entertainment selections are not very girlie lol.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This has all the important parts right?

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Inspiration comes from this fabby paper collection So Loved from Photoplay.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I’ve used darker matting and spacers between the layers for added depth and to keep it from looking busy.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

Pretty poofy bow topped with twine and a vintage button and accented with a lovely bird charm.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

In place of my usual die cut doily I’m using an altered chipboard frame finished off in a ballerina pink acrylic paint. I’ve added a second sweet sentiment to the top and clipped it on for good measure.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 06

So. Many. Flowers. Tucking in some die cut leaves and tiny loopy twine bows builds up this arrangement and Stickling on the leaves adds just a hint of sparkle.

This chipboard frame and sentiment is finished to coordinate with the keys. The tiny clip also matches perfectly! These sweet little  stamp images are popped up on spacers and help to make a smallish focal image carry a little more weight.

Family Greeting Card All Occasion Polly's Paper Studio 05

I always like to include a few extra flowers to balance a larger arrangement.
