Retro Cherry Pie Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well it’s no secret that I love all things retro and vintage. This card is created with fun and whimsical patterned papers and image paired with perfectly coordinating ribbons from RRR.

There is so much retro happening here!!!!! Aqua and red are a classic combination.

These ribbons are a match made in heaven for this iconic image.  A little tip when selecting sheer ribbon….this adorable ribbon with cherries was totally washed out when layered over the burlap so I just added it over a nice clean white so the cherries are crisp and really pop.

As with the ribbon…this focal image was a bit lost on the busy patterned papers so I just layered it over a doily die cut in white and now it’s really the star of the card.

Since I was on a roll with the cherries…I added it to the inside of the card as well.

Loads of pretty flowers, buttons, clips, pins and silver metal charms work so well with the theme so I added them all!!!!

Harvest Blessings Greeting Card

Standard
Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in the the most falliest fall card I have ever made. 
I’ve got a very traditional turkey image layered over a cut apart tag and stacked on a pretty white doily and patterned papers.
I’m just going to call it right now….this taffeta ribbon is my favorite for fall 2017. It’s like orange…but sooooo vintagy. And it makes a lovely poofy bow.

I’m still working in the Autumn Harvest Ribbon Club selection and pulled out the gorgeous crocheted lace. A little twine wrapped around is the perfect finishing touch.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative!

Cherish Greeting Card w/Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! How can it be August already? I’m not quite ready to give up on Summer quite yet so Fall projects will have to wait. This time I’m sharing a very loaded greeting card..just the way I like them : )

Cherish Greeting Card

This card has a lot of layers…but a really simple color scheme so it does not come of as too busy.

This Cherish chippies is one of my favorites because it works for so many occasions.

Coordinating ribbon here to create a poofy bow with twine, a vintage button, and metal keys.

I added the Ivy Corners Chippie here finished in the same blue tones at the paper to add texture but not be too contrasting.

A very lush arrangement of flowers for the top and bottom corner of the card.

The chippies were wiped down with a soft cloth to prepare them for finishing.

A variety of embossing powders with different finishes..some glossy some flat.

The chippies have all been heat set and are ready to add to the card!

I’m quite in shock at how many plaids and checkered patterned papers I was able to work into this card lol.

I added some lovely flowers that matched the ones on the wreath sticker.

I worked in quite a lot of spacers to add dimension and to keep the patterns from getting all squished together.

Okay now it’s your turn to create an Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim project and link up with us to play along!

Hey Peeps! We’re starting a new Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Okay. I’m just gonna say it. This may be the coolest graduation card ever. At the least it’s the coolest one I have ever made. This card was gifted to an awesome young man who is a friend of our youngest Son and a fellow Boy Scout. We are super proud of him. He has a very bright future I’m sure  : ) Well done Zachery!!!

Did I mention it’s a shaker? And did I mention that I die cut and embossed those stars with a shiny silver finish? That’s how you an tell how much I like this young man.

I wanted the Pirate P to be inside the shaker…but I didn’t want it to get turned over or stuck in a carner so it’s secured in place with fishing line.

Making Spirits Bright Shaker Card w/Tutorial

Standard

Hello there Paper Peeps!  Well I’m still in full swing of my Christmas in July. I’ve got more retro vibe today with this non-traditional mix of colors. And it’s a shaker card!!!

Making Spirits Bright Christmas Shaker Card

 

Isn’t this just super fabby? I love that little car so much it was the inspiration for this project.

I’m obsessed lately with layering the chippies to create very unique and one of a kind frames and embellishments.

I am also obsessed with shaker cards.  There I said it. But then you all already knew that right? LOL

I chose very festive patterns for this fun card to coordinate with the tiny tree topped car,

Here’s how I altered the chipboard…

1. Thoroughly  wipe down the chippies to prepare them for finishing. 2. Each piece was given a base coat of flat white acrylic paint and allowed to dry. 3. The Bead Strand pieces were painted in bright cherry red acrylic paint. 4. The snowflakes were given a coat of sparkly embossing powder and heat set. The Bead Strand pieces were topped with a layer of Stickles.
