You say Witch Halloween Tag

Standard

Hello there!  I’ve got a frightfully fun tag to share today created with a not so traditional color scheme for Halloween.

So much purple!!!!! The inspiration was the swimsuit on this extra vintagy and glamours witch.

This is a super fun arrangement of flowers with spiral stamens, sugared berries, and coordinating Prills.

Chipboard spider webs and gate make a fabulous base for all the holiday embellies.

You know I can’t resist ribbons and twine and sequins.

Christmas Trophy Shadow Box Tags with Petaloo and Authentique

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a pair of tags that I created with the gorgeous blooms from Petaloo and vintagy papers from Authentique. Petaloo-Authentique Christmas Trophy Tags
I started with a few similar elements like the little paper mache  heart shadow boxes and painted trophies and added different but coordinating patterned papers, flowers and holiday embellies to 2 tags with loads of holiday style.

For this tag I’m using a sturdy base with burlap and layering on all the details.

The paper mache heart box is just the perfect size to tuck in the painted trophy….that was just dumb luck….not planning…but I’ll take it.

I’ve filled the trophy with parts of the Christmas pick and poinsettia and a tiny clip holding the sentiment banner.  The gorgeous Petaloo flowers are arranged to feature the burlap bloom…..which is my personal fav holiday flower.

I am so in love with the variety of textures from this flower selection.  I’ve included a little blingy trim for sparkle and while the adhesive was wet I sprinkled on a bit of clear glitter for a faux-snow effect.

Jingle bells and burlap ribbon are the finishing touches for this holiday home décor tag.

I was able to create this tag to be similar but different just by changing the papers and embellies.

This time I’ve crafted a tiny banner from the sticker sheet and added it over the flowers and trophy…and it is for sure jolly!

Tiny glitter foam balls take  the place of the Christmas pick to fill the trophy. There’s an itty bitty vintagy image tucked in behind for depth.

More of the tinsel trim in the back of the box but this time in silver over charming and country inspired plaid patterned paper.

Blingy trim looks so festive over the tiny reindeer patterns and dresses this tag up so much you could hang it right on your Christmas tree and enjoy it as part of your favorite seasonal holiday décor.

Blog Hopping with Petaloo and Authentique

Hey there Peeps! Well it’s my turn today to share the projects I created with the gorgeous flowers from Petaloo and the fun and festive patterned papers from Authentique.

Christmas_Time_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Polly's_Paper_Studio_01

I’m using Burlap Poinsettias  to accent the Classic Christmas for this very vintagy card.

The berries add a nice bit of sparkle and contrast nicely with the burlap and velvet leaves.

Tinsel trim and snowflakes are essential holiday embellishments and I’m using these items here to create a frame for the gorgeous Santa image. I added a bit of crackle medium to the image to make it look even more vintagy.

Christmas_Time_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Polly's_Paper_Studio_04

Glittery finished chipboard creates a lovely base for the sentiment block and is topped off with a tiny metal candy cane charm, twine, and clip.

These pretty patterned papers are the perfect paring for the gorgeous Petaloo Flowers.

I totally loaded this card with paper patterns but it’s not too crazy busy because I used solid red cardstock as borders.

Squeeeeee so many poinsettias and velvet and sparkles. This s a bold arrangement to stand out on the papers.

Poofy bow, twine and bell along with a large glittery snowflake are added over stacked paper doilies and burlap ribbon trim. I gave Santa a little star wand to help him on his magical gift giving night.

Celebrating Fall with Petaloo and Authentique

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Today I am celebrating one of my favorite times of year. Which of course is Fall. In Michigan we enjoy glorious foliage and cool crisp air.  Also everything is pumpkin spice so that’s a win win.  I’ve created a tag and card using the gorgeous blooms from Petaloo and just perfect seasonal patterned papers from Authentique.  I’m also incorporating some yummy mixed media supplies to alter metals and chipboard pieces to coordinate with warm and rich patterns of the papers.

gather_your_blessing_fall_tag_home_decor_polly

The burlap from the Daisy Layers adds a wonderful textural element and creates a nice base layer for the more dimensional flowers.

gather_your_blessing_fall_tag_home_decor_pollys_paper_studio_authentique_petaloo_02

To balance the arrangement I added a few more of the layers to the top just tucked under the chipboard frame.

gather_your_blessing_fall_tag_home_decor_pollys_paper_studio_authentique_petaloo_03

The larger Blooms are the centerpiece for this arrangement with a few Spring Berries , twine and altered die cut shapes.

gather_your_blessing_fall_tag_home_decor_pollys_paper_studio_authentique_petaloo_04

This tag would make a lovely home décor element displayed on a mantle or shelf with a few pinecones and pumpkins.

I’ve also created a card……

bountiful_blessings_thanksgiving_greeting_card_authentique_petaloo_pollys_paper_studio_01

I’ve layered the papers here with the sweetest image of a vintage girl harvesting wheat.  This was the inspiration to choose the flowers to coordinate with the rich patterns and warm colors.bountiful_blessings_thanksgiving_greeting_card_authentique_petaloo_pollys_paper_studio_02

 

The key to this arrangement was mixing textures, styles, and trims.

More flowers here mixed with metal embellishments and fussy cut images that have been accented with mixed media supplies.

I really had such a lovely time creating this set of Fall projects tucked away in my shop with classic radio programs and little space heater.
