Spring Bird Card for Petaloo

Standard

Hey there  Peeps!  Ginny here to share a very springy and just a little bit vintage and shabby all occasion greeting card.  The inspiration was a lovely bird image with coordinating pattern papers that just called out to have a garden of flowers added to accent it.

I just love the soft pinks and wood grain together. I added a white die cut doily to brighten it up just a bit.

Multiple layers of matting helps to separate the patterned papers and provide a sturdy base to add oodles of gorgeous flowers.

Petaloo has so many lovely flowers that it’s very easy and fun to match up blooms to your projects.

Tucked in under more flowers at the top is a sweet little bird nest charm with pearly accents because cards need a little bling to be extra awesome.

Since this card turned out to have such a lovely nature inspired look I added a bow created with burlap and a little border of pink lace.

CAS Butterfly Greeting Card Set

Standard

Hey Peeps. Well I’m going CAS today. I know..it surprised me to. When I got my supplies out to create cards all the fun little images and die cuts just fell into place and I thought why not? Everything doesn’t need to have flowers and chippies and embellies. Sometimes you just need a quick card that’s good for any occasion that can be mailed in a regular sized envelope right?

 

I had a fun time mixing some vintagy patterns of paper with some that were just a bit edgy and on trend. Layers of die cuts, RRR trims, and simple pearly accents create loads of detail.

All or Love Vintage Beach All Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m sharing a card today with a vintage beach theme that is near and dear to my heart. Our little family loves the beach so much we spend our Christmas holiday there.  A little sand….a little surf. IHOP(for those not in America IHOP is International House of Pancakes) for Christmas dinner. What could be better?

All our Love Vintage Beached All Occasion Greeting Card

 

I think these warmer tones of blue and kraft adds to the vintagy effect.

The shells and sand dollars make a great accent and work well to fill in the flower arrangement.

A scribble frame in a circular shape breaks up the square edges.

Tucking in some cheesecloth gives the effect of netting…a natural choice for a beach card. I love the texture it adds and helps to fill in the arrangement.

The bow has white stitching and helps to break up the dark blue satin.

Last but not least…..some coordinating Prills to give the effect of  water.

These chippies were fun and easy to alter to coordinate with the vintage beach theme....

1. The bare chipboard was wiped down to prepare for finishing. 2. Flat white acrylic to top off the scribble frame and gold to base coat the shells and sand dollars. 3. Crackle medium is added to the sand dollars and once dry a thin coat of white acrylic. Stamping on the frame and a bit of inking. 4. Distressing the edges makes the elements pop.

I was inspired by these sweet little wooden hearts painted out with a chalkboard finish with a dash line edging. What a perfect base to add the embellies to.

Of course you have to have a double layer bow and this one has itty bitty stars squeeeeeee.

The sentiments are actually layered stickers. They have great dimension and a vintagy Americana feel.

I used spacers to add extra depth and allow room to secure the twine that’s added to the tag.

This tag is similar…but has a different sentiment.

The base of this tag is 110 lb cardstock with a rich blue and polka dot pattern layered on top. The back is finished in a coordinating pattern.

A double layer of doilies because you can never have enough of those…..along with matching flowers, pearly accents and iridescent stars.

When in Doubt Wing It Art Canvas

Standard

Hey Peeps! I’m sharing great little art canvas today that just flat out reminds me that you gotta keep moving forward even if you have to pretend you know what you’re doing.  Which is me pretty much most of the time lol.

When in Doubt Wing It Art Canvas

 

Isn’t this just so sweet? I’ve hung on to this little bird image for a while waiting for just the right project and I’m so glad I did.  Love her little crown : )

There’s perfectly coordinated flowers here with twine and berries mixed in to make a lovely little arrangement.

Altered chipboard creates the base and I’ve added real vintage buttons, a metal flourish and of course a poofy bow.

This is canvas stretched on a wood frame so it’s quite dimensional. I’ve wrapped the  ribbon around to give the edges a nice finished look.
