Happy Holidays Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Well despite the weather being in the 90’s this week I am dropping in with more Christmas in July inspiration.

Happy Holidays Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio

I created this card with the Twas the Night Before Christmas collection from Echo Park. I’ve layered the beautiful patterned papers with a burgundy cardstock to keep it from looking busy. The tag in the center was part of a larger 3 x 4 journal card that was cut with a stitched edge tag die to fit the size of the card better. All of the flowers were made by me and finished off with faux snow and stamens from Really Reasonable Ribbon. A bit of die cut foliage and loopy twine tucked in creates a nice full arrangement. There’s also a pretty doily die cut with a Fun Stampers Journey die from crisp white cardstock, a few metal charms, glitter stars, and a vintage button.

Christmas Wonderland Greeting Card

Standard

Hello friends and welcome to day 2 of Christmas in July. Just a quick project share today .

Christmas Wonderland Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio

I’m using the Christmas Wonderland collection from Echo Park to create this bright and cheerful greeting card. There’s a plaid and a diagonal stripe as the base layered with a sweet square die cut doily, and woodland inspired snow scene. A combination of ready made and made by me flowers are combined to make a nice full arrangement and is accented with glittery stars and die cut foliage.  A generously sized bow is topped with a second bow tied from burlap string and a collection of jingle bells. Last but not least a pair of metal tree charms and vintage buttons.

Merry Snowman Card Christmas in July Amazing Paper Grace DOTM

Standard

Hello friends and welcome to the first project I’m sharing for Christmas in July for 2020! I love to get a jump start on creating holiday projects before the mad rush of shopping and cleaning and baking 11,000 cookies takes up all my time. Not to mention the cold and snow right? I’m so glad to be working with the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Club for July from Spellbinders.  When I first saw this beautiful Fanfare die I knew it would be a perfect base to layer up with fun and festive holiday details.

I’ve used it in place of my regular doily and cut it from gold mirror cardstock so I could add a little sparkle and shine to this card with a more warm color scheme.

This die is really perfectly sized for filling in a 5 x 6 1/2 inch card.

For a little extra drama I added all  the layers with spacers so there is so much dimension!

Merry Christmas Snowman Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

The set includes a small fan shape with an intricate cut out. I cut 2 from crisp white cardstock and used them to fill in this arrangement. There are a few small flowers here created with dies from the kit as well. They were super easy to cut and shape.

A few finishing details like faux snow, metal snowflake charms, and a vintage button are all this card needed to make it the perfect first project to kick off Christmas in July. I hope you can join me as I share loads of holiday inspiration all through July.

4th of July Group Event at Authentique Papers Shaker Wall Hanging

Standard
Hello there friends and Authentique Paper fans! Ginny here with the project I created for the Summer group event with the crew.  You all know by now that the Summer holidays are some of my favorite. My dearest Hubby even as a 4th of July Birthday so we have even more reason to celebrate. And have more cake yay!   I created a patriotic inspired shaker wall hanging with the gorgeous July pages from the Calendar collection.

I am completely in love with the patterned papers and amazing vintage images for this month ( and all the other months lol.)

I wanted the beautiful journal card to be the focal point so I created a frame that becomes a shaker element.

The fabulous plaid works so well as a base to add all the layering.  The B side of the plaid is a stars and stripes pattern so they look great together. This holiday home decor display has a generous length of ribbon as a hanger and a pair of poofy bows topped with twine and vintage buttons.

A large arrangement of made by me flowers coordinates perfectly and anchors the bottom corner and has fun and festive holiday inspired glittery stars and die cut stamps tucked in.

Birthday Greeting Card with Timeless from Authentique Papers

Standard

Hello there friends and Authentique Paper Fans! Ginny here with a sweet and sassy greeting card created with the all new Timeless collection. Yes I know that collection is designed to be used to create wedding themed projects but I could not help myself. I just had to fussy cut that cake and create a Birthday greeting card.

Why am I calling it sassy you might be asking?  Well just take a look at that color scheme. It’s so bright and vibrant.  I used the Spectrum cardstock in Bubblegum as my border layers to get that great contrast.

 

By alternating the hue and the scale of the patterns I was able to incorporate many of them without it looking too busy.

There’s some schneaky die cuts tucked in to create even more detail.

These pink and white flowers are just popping off the background. Die cut foliage and mirror cardstock leaves helps to fill in this generously sized arrangement and really anchor this bottom corner.

Here’s that gorgeous layered cake on a pretty scalloped stand. How delightful it would be to have a cake like that for a birthday or a wedding or any occasion.  Last but not least a couple of metal charms and a vintage button and this Timeless Birthday is all set to gift to a special someone.

Please enjoy this process video…

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to join in the fun of the Authentique Papers celebration of all things Dad! I’ve created a card with the new Manly collection and I can not even express how much I love it!

This collection is chock full of richly patterned papers in warm  colors and gorgeous vintagy images.

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Well summer weather has finally settled in here and we are spending soooo much time outdoors! I’ve even spent hours cleaning out and re-provisioning our camper in hopes the restrictions will be lifted in time for us to take it out on our first trip of the season. I’m so excited to spend some time at the lake!  In the meantime here is a little card inspiration chock full of pretty flowers and a chunky chipboard vintage truck.
