Vintage Halloween Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps!  Ginny here with  a greeting card I created with the   fabulous Masquerade collection for Authentique Papers.

Oh how I love to layer patterned papers!  What is so great about this collection is that all the patterns go so well together so you can mix them and match them and it will all look great. Using a black cardstock border between the layers is the secret to keeping it from looking busy.

This is my favorite image from the collection. There’s no way I could cut it down any and loose any of the pretty girls so instead of my usual die cut round I went for a more rectangly focal image.

To coordinate with the softer more vintagy color tones the flowers here are lighter and not as dramatic.  I did add a few rose gold leaves and glitter stars though since more layers always looks better to me.

 Last but not least is a pretty poofy bow topped with a vintage button and a few silvery jack-o-lanter charms.

4 Sheet Challenge October Waterfall Flip Book

Standard

Hey there friends and Authentique Paper Fans!  Ginny here with my 4 sheet challenge for October. Every month I take the 4 sheets of the Calendar collection and create a project . I’m only adding cardstock and embellishments. 

This may look like any old flip book…but friends it has an extra special additional that I’ve been wanting to add to my challenge projects but was unsure if I could do it with only the 4 sheets.  Spoiler alert…I did it!

The 4 x 6 size works perfectly for this challenge. I used up just about allll the patterned paper. 

I swapped out my usual round focal image for a larger and more rectangly one. Don’t worry I still found room for all my favorite trimmings.

For instance….a garden full of spooktacular made by me flowers arranged with glittery stars and spiderwebby netting. 

Three of the pages inside have pockets. Plenty of room to include pictures and journaling on these inserts. 

Seriously there are so many inserts!

I covered the tops of the waterfall section with an image from the cut apart sheet and the B side of the remaining  images to have a little more variety in the patterns.  Handy dandy clip included to keep the layers secure.

Along with the inserts I tucked a couple of the journal cards into the pockets. I couldn’t bear to cut these stamps apart…they remind me of a movie poster from a theater.

Purple Ladybug Halloween Card Guest Design for Whimsy Stamps

Standard

Hello friends and crafty peeps! I’m very excited to be sharing my second project created for the Annual 31 Nights of Halloween Blog Celebration as Guest Designer for October at Whimsy Stamps.

I started this card by stamping and coloring the Trick or Treating Rubber Cling Stamp. I really enjoy creating projects with an nontraditional color scheme and since purple and green are relatively new to Halloween I thought I would color my image to coordinate with the fabulous patterned paper from the Hocus Pocus 6 x 6 Paper Pack. This sweet little girl has her pumpkin pail all ready to fill with treats! I created a background for her by smooshing Distress Inks and antiquing the edges for extra detail. The sentiment is stamped from the You’re My Boo Clear Stamp. I wanted a little extra something for the background so I used the little bubble stamp from the Glitter Globe Clear Stamp and added it in a random pattern. I colored my image with Spectrum Noir Tr-Blend Markers and added Stickles for a bit of sparkle. Large dimensional flowers and ribbon trims are the final detail.

Thanks so much to Whimsy Stamps for inviting me to join them for their oh so spooky and fun 31 Days of Halloween Blog Celebration. I know you will enjoy the projects created by all the designers so make sure you check back to the Whimsy Blog every day through October.

Day 5 of 13 Days of Halloween Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there friends! I’m so happy that you’re joining me for day 5 of our 13 Days of Halloween Tutorial series on our YouTube channel. Today I made a fun and festive greeting card.

I’m creating with the Trick or Treat collection from Echo Park.

I’m pairing it with Orange Fizz cardstock from Cardstock Warehouse. I love how vintagy that orange is!

You all know I can not resist a plaid paper and this one is such a great scale for greeting cards.

Here’s a generously sized arrangement of made by me flowers. Netting, loopys twine bows, and glittery stars helps to fill in the volume and add a bit of sparkle.

More plaid for the bow topped with twine and a vintage button.

Day 4 of 13 Days of Halloween Loaded Pocket

Standard

Hello friends and thank you so much for joining me for day 4 of our 13 Days of Halloween tutorial series on our YouTube channel.

Today I’m creating a fun and festive loaded pocket using the Halloween Town collection from Echo Park….

This assortment of patterns and images is just so cute! I love the addition of the green and purple to the holiday color scheme.

I do make loaded pockets quite often . I just love filling them up with fun inserts. What I don’t do very often is get use out of the sticker sheet that typically comes with collection packs. That was my inspiration for this project….use those stickers!

Decorating the inserts is the best part. I got to use many of the stickers as well as the journal card for this assortment.

These larger inserts are folding so there’s loads of room to add pictures and journaling. Use this pocket as an nontraditional scrapbook filled with all your favorite holiday memories. The tip in and the tag are covered on the back for a nice finished look.

Even with out all the fillers tucked in the pocket itself is pretty darn cute. It’s got layers of the patterned papers, a large sentiment sticker and made by me flowers.

Day 3 of 13 Days of Halloween Farmhouse Inspired Easel

Standard

Hello friends and welcome to day 3 of our 13 Days of Halloween Tutorial series on our YouTube channel.

Today I’m creating a farmhouse inspired chalkboard easel.

This started with a simple unfinished easel from the Dollar Tree. I just love Dollar Tree crafts don’t you?

The easel frame was unfinished wood so I gave it a coat of flat white acrylic paint.

The chalkboard section was basically a textured vinyl but I was able to prime it just as you would a real chalkboard for an authentic look.

I used my Cricut to cut large numbers out of plaid paper. They’re attached with spacers for dimension. The easel is finished with arrangements of made by me flowers and coordinating trims.

Won’t you join me for a tutorial?
