I’ve got a lot of pattern going on here but solid borders between the layers keeps everything from being jumbled up.

These flowers have such fun bright colors and match the paper perfectly. This arrangement has a sweet bow in a chevron printed twill and some loopy twine bows to work as filler.

The smaller arrangement on top has a lovely metal charm with an inspirational message.

Okay that’s all for my project. On a very personal note. I’d like to express how much I have treasured my time working for the Petaloo Brand. Cheryl has been such an inspiration for me to create with the amazing flowers and embellishments . Her support for the team and all of her hard work behind the scenes to make us shine will never be forgotten. I consider her a wonderful team leader and friend. Speaking of wonderful team…..I couldn’t ask for a better group of designers to work with. Not only are they top notch in their field…but they are really sweet and funny and generous and I am lucky to know them. With the ending of the Petaloo blog we’ll all be on to different things…but we will still be together in spirit. And last but not least a big thank you to all of you who supported our team by enjoying the blog and commenting and sharing your appreciation for our creations. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Let’s Hear it for the Dad’s

Standard

Hey there peeps! I’m dropping in today with cards for the Dad’s.   These are CAS cards….which I’m learning to get better at.  It’s a little easier with masculine cards since they don’t want all the fluff and froo froo anyway.

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!

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.

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.

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
