Well hello there Peeps! I’m sorry to share that we are still in the icy grasp of winter here in Michigan : ( We haven’t been above freezing in so long I can’t remember. Keeping busy in my studio helps to combat the effects of the shorter colder days.
Today I’m sharing a card created with the gorgeous Seasons collection from Graphic 45. I just love that this collection is specifically seasons rather than holidays because winter does not end with Christmas ( at least not here in Michigan lol.)
I also really love winter birds. They’re just so sweet and delicate.
The cut aparts make it so easy to add layers.
I’ve drawn inspiration for the color palate for the flower selections. Mixing sizes and textures adds so much detail. There are also tiny berry picks, ribbon, and twine tucked in to build up the arrangement.
These little friends are adhered with spacers to bring in a lot of dimension. Tucking in a crisp white doily helps to break up the busy patterns. Altered chipboard snowflakes are the perfect detail for a winter themed card.
I’ve brought the flowers and chippies up to the top as well to balance the larger arrangement. some are nestled under a curled layer of the cut apart.
A bit of faux snow to soften the edges of the papers and real vintage buttons complete this card.

Hey there Peeps! Well I’ve found a way to hide from the last of the cold winter weather. I’ve been hunkered down in my shop creating a fabulous kit that gets me in the mood for spring. I do love birds of all kinds so this kit is for our feathered friends and fellow bird aficionados. I really needed a good selection of sentiments too so I can easily whip up cards for all occasions. I had lots of fun creating cards with the kit….and even 2 tags……because that’s what I do…there are no rules here! Here are the projects…..
So that’s 6 full sized cards and 2 large tags with this kit and few items from my stash like cardstock and flowers and chippies. Wanna get a look at all the great supplies in the kit? Well just hop on over to the shop and check it out…
Finished cards and tags are also available HERE.
Additional supplies from….

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G
Hey there Paper Peeps…Ginny here and I am so happy that Spring is right around the corner. I’m in the mood for some birds and flowers…..so here is a card with both on a fabulous blue stripe and paisley.
Isn’t that Light Blue Chevron Stripe on Twill ribbon just scrumptious??? I topped it with Light Blue Burlap String from Really Reasonable Ribbon and a button and tag : ) The perfect combo for a Spring card!
I used a combination of Mulberry flowers with handcrafted stamped and layered flowers topped off with pearly accents. There’s also a bit of painted chipboard peeking out.
I layered Blue Paisley Stripes and images from the Vintage Illustration CD from Crafty Secrets and a beautiful dark robins egg blue card stock to separate the patterns.
I finished the inside with just a neutral card stock with stitching.
I used my Tonic Distresser to tatter up the edges..I love the effect after inking…but hate the mess….it’s worth it though so I guess I will just clean up lol.
Okay Peeps that’s all for me….wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
