Pockets w/ Tags Petaloo~Maja Design Spotlight

Standard

Hey there Petaloo Peeps! So very excited to share the projects I created for the Petaloo ~ Maja Design product spotlight.

 

I decided to create favors since every party is more funner when you get to take a treat home. These pockets have tags but there’s still plenty of room to tuck in a little gifty.

 

Party Favor Pockets Petaloo Maja Design Product Spotlight

These pockets are created with the gorgeous patterned papers from Maja Design.

Pink Pocket

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using the same basic layout for all of the pockets and layering them on burlap for a consistent look. The natural fiber adds a nice texture as well.

A tiny crocheted doily is a great shabby chic accent and creates a nice base to layer on the beautiful flowers.

I’ve lined the pockets with a coordinating patterned paper so it will look just as nice without the tags and treats.

Tags are a great place to add a picture or some journaling on the back. Or maybe even affix a gift card?

Purple Pocket

Stitching around the pockets is a nice subtle detail and adds structural stability to the pocket so you can fill it up without worrying about it coming apart.

I’ve tucked in some pearly picks coordinating ribbon to enhance the flowers.

Blue Pocket

Dream Big Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps!  I’ve got a really fun retro inspired card to share today that’s got fabby bright colors and patterned papers that are so vintagy they will just make you smile : ) The patterned papers here are from the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection.

Dream Big Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Who says cards for boys have to be boring? I did all my layering like I would any other card and it turned out great!

Dream Big Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I created a tag from the cut apart and added a metal eyelet to string striped ribbon trim through.

I’ve wrapped twine around the center section and behind the tag.

Using spacers between the layers helps the details pop.  The inside of the card is finished with coordinating patterns.

Not only is this card a thoughtful gift….but wouldn’t it look cute displayed in a little boys bedroom? Or even a big boys mancave lol .

Wings and Heart Greeting Card with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a very vintagy inspired greeting card with loads of chippies and flowers , burlap and lace.

 

Isn’t this the sweetest? Anything with hearts and wings is going to be great, right?

There’s a lot going on here….but using the dark navy borders really helps to break up the busy patterns.

I think the burlap and lace adds so much texture and gives a really homespun country appeal.

Gorgeous flowers and pearly accents.

The cabochon in the center has flowers in the exact same shades and is the perfect focal point.

1.  I wiped down the chippies and poked out the little bits to prepare them for finishing. 2. I applied a flat white embossing powder to the wings and heat set it then allowed it to cool. Focusing on the wingtips I added a layer of white and gold speckled embossing powder and set that also. A final layer of glitter snow to the very edges for added texture. 3. While the glitter snow was still wet I sprinkled on some Prills. 4. Text paper was applied to the heart and the edges sanded down with a small file. The edges are aged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The frame was easily altered with navy embossing powder and heat set.

Monochromatic Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Standard

Time for another fun challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon! This time the theme is Monochromatic and Ribbon or Trim.  I created a very purply Birthday card and added layers of patterned papers, gorgeous ribbon .

How Do You Expect Me To Remember Your Birthday Greeting Card 01

This ribbon is Satin Swiss Dots on Grape and it’s too perfect!

How Do You Expect Me To Remember Your Birthday Greeting Card 02

I got into my stash of Graphic 45 for these purply papers. Matted with grape colored cardstock to tone down the busy patterns.

How Do You Expect Me To Remember Your Birthday Greeting Card 03

The card is finished inside with coordinating papers.

How Do You Expect Me To Remember Your Birthday Greeting Card 04

Scrumptious flowers from Petaloo. Botanica Blooms Lav/Purple, Faux Dried Mini, Chantilly Velvet Hydrangeas Violet.

These lovely Scribble Frame Butterfly chippies were easy to alter with a Spectrum Noir pen and some Stickles. I added some Prills also to finish off this card.

Okay now it’s your turn to create a fabulous Monochromatic with Ribbon or Trim and link up with us at RRR to play along.

It’s Your Birthday Cupcake Card

Standard

Hey Peeps! Happy 1st of the month to all of you. You know it’s my favorite day since I get to share my first project with the new Ocean Breeze Ribbon Club Assortment.

These soft dreamy colors reminded me of sherbet…..so I was naturally inclined to make a card with something sweet on it.

It’s Your Birthday Cupcake Greeting Card

I really tried for a CAS card….but I think I may not have achieved it.  Oh well it’s CAS for me. I started with a fun cupcake stamp on coordinating papers to the ribbons.  The frosting has 2 layers of stamped images with Foam Tabs between for dimension. I added some Sugar Glitter Paste , a few sequins, and colored in the cherry with some Sparkle Pen.  It’s all layered on a small oval die cut that helps to separate the busy patterns.

 

This bow has 2 of the ribbons stacked and  topped off with a vintage button. The sentiment was cut into the shape of a banner and given Foam Tabs to pop it up. Those sweet little Pearly Stars are the perfect subtle accent.

 

A border in darker pink helps to anchor the lighter patterned papers. I’ve stitched around the card to add a bet of detail and finished the card on the inside with a coordinating pattern of paper.

Okay..a little more practice and maybe I’ll be better at Clean and Simple…but for now I quite like this card and I’m now obsessed with plaid frosting!!!

Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
