The World is a Canvas Greeting Card with Graphic 45 Nature Sketchbook Video

Standard

Hey there all my Peeps! I’m excited to share that I’m starting my New Years crafty goal for 2018 which is trying different color combinations and design styles.  This card has a blue and green color scheme which is a bit outside my comfort zone…but I love how it turned out! I’m using the Nature Sketchbook Collection from Graphic 45 which is one of my favorites.

It’s sooooo green lol.  Just kidding…I really do like it.

The idea behind this card was nature which was easy to accomplish using this collection.

These Wild Orchid Crafts are dreamy. I did not hold back with the layering lol. There is a sweet little fussy cut butterfly tucked in and pretty chevron striped bow to fill in this arrangement. A bit of netting adds texture.

Prills help to bring the colors in to the center focal image which is a cut apart from the collection. I just love the sentiment.

This corner has a larger butterfly, more of the flowers and netting, and gold twine tied in a simple loopy bow.

This clip was given a face lift with alcohol ink and now it coordinates perfectly! The chipboard frame is finished with antique gold embossing powder for a subtle shine. A bit of messy sewing lines adds texture to the patterned paper.

The edges of the papers are all distressed and scrunched up which is a subtle..but effective accent. Look at all the dimension I was able to get with the layers.

Please enjoy this video I’ve prepared for this card…..

Classic Black and White Birthday Card

Standard

Hey Peeps! Ginny here to share a very classically styled Birthday greeting card.

The sentiment is simple with a bold graphic font.

 

Pairing stripes and florals is a striking statement in black and white.

Pretty coordinating flowers layered over the ribbon to create a nice full arrangement.

A doily die cut from flat black cardstock really anchors the sentiment and looks pretty tucked under the matching bling.

Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Diamond Satin in Black.

I’ve used darker matting and spacers between the layers for added depth and to keep it from looking busy.

Pretty poofy bow topped with twine and a vintage button and accented with a lovely bird charm.

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

In place of my usual die cut doily I’m using an altered chipboard frame finished off in a ballerina pink acrylic paint. I’ve added a second sweet sentiment to the top and clipped it on for good measure.

So. Many. Flowers. Tucking in some die cut leaves and tiny loopy twine bows builds up this arrangement and Stickling on the leaves adds just a hint of sparkle.

I always like to include a few extra flowers to balance a larger arrangement.

Winter Snow Day Greeting Card with G45

Standard

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.)

Winter Snow Day Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I also really love winter birds. They’re just so sweet and delicate.

Winter Snow Day Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

The cut aparts make it so easy to add layers.

Winter Snow Day Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

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.

Winter Snow Day Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

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.

Winter Snow Day Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

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.
