Happy New Year Layered Tag


It’s almost time to ring in the new year Peeps and I’m pretty excited about the  adventures that await in 2017. I created this sweet tag with a vintagy New Year’s Bingo Images on layers of Nesting Ovals and topped of with Gardenia’s.
I cut these Gardenias from salmon colored cardstock then shaped them and finished the edges with heat set embossing powder. There’s also flourish leaves and spiral stamens.

Using spacers between the layers adds a lot of depth. The tag is topped off with perfectly coordinating ribbons and a pretty pearly resin rose.

Holiday Merry Wishes Tag


Hey there Peeps. Ginny here to share a very festive Christmas Tag I created with many of my favorite Cheery Lynn Designs Dies and some fun patterned papers and embellishments.
I created the base for this tag with the Coved Rectangle Stitch and Cut die using the middle size to cut 1 from 110lb cardstock and 1 from red cardstock. I adhered these together to make a sturdy layer to add the rest of the sections.

Using the next size down in the set of Coved Rectangles I cut a layer from red checked paper and attached it with spacers between.

To add texture and detail I tucked in a section of Gauze Border that I snipped to fit and dovetailed.  It’s held on with glue and a funky giant paper clip.

Christmas flowers are the funnest to make and these were a (slightly messy) blast.  I created the Poinsettia with matching red cardstock and accented the tips with Sugar Glitter Paste before assembling. The center is  pieces clipped from a berry pick and given a light coat of alcohol ink to color it to coordinate. The white flower is the  Gardenia cut with crisp white.  Every flower arrangement needs leaves so why not use Holly shaped leaves with a little inking on the edge and Stickles to make it extra festive?

A few last details like this Tiny Kaleidoscope  Doily , chipboard sentiment and pearly accents are perfect for this tag and finished off with some snappy red and white stitched ribbon.

Kraft Doily Card with Cheery Lynn


Kraft Doily Card 1Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a card I created inspired by the Cheery Lynn Designs Large Sunflower Doily. I cut it out with Kraft paper and new instantly that it would look fabulous layered with creamy whites paper patterns.  To anchor the warmer color of the doily I used a Kraft card base cut 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. To add texture and depth I used the Tonic Distressing Tool to tatter the edges  and spacers between the layers.Kraft Doily Card 2 This arrangement of flowers has the Gardenia Strip and Small Gardenia Strip as well as the Miniature Rose, Dandelions, and Flourish #14. I’ve added a gorgeous ribbon bow, tag and vintage button to coordinate with the flowers.Kraft Doily Card 3I cut additional pieces from the Kraft paper to add bulk and fill in the flowers.  Bending the leaves gives them dimension. I used only 2 layers of the Miniature Roses with a pearl in the center to fill in the edges of the display.Kraft Doily Card 4

Horizon Fishtail Banners and Square Frame elements are stacked up and secured with spacers for a delicate look. I finished this card off with  pearly accents, a simple loopy twine bow and coordinating wooden clothespin.Kraft Doily Card 5This card has a definitely country chic appeal.

Love and Cherish Valentine Printer Tray Home Decor


Hey there Paper Peeps! It’s Ginny here and I’m so very excited to be sharing my very first post for  Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. What a fun adventure it’s going to be for me to create with these fabulous chippies. For my first project I made a very Valentiny  Love and Cherish Printer Tray with lots of bits and bobs and finished it  with well altered chipboard embellishments.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 1 I just love a classic color scheme for holiday decor and I think this fits the bill. There’s just something about black and creme with red. Soooo romantic.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 3This gorgeous set of  Ivy Corners has been finished with red acrylic paint then inked and embossed then sprayed with a shimmery mist.  I wanted it to have a well worn and aged look so I dabbed a bit of gold paint in the edges.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 2I scavenged some seasonal embellies like the keys and heart and butterflies and gave them each a section of the tray being careful to balance the red with the chipboard and metal.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 5The chipboard was trimmed so it wouldn’t hang off the bottom ….easy enough with a small pair of sharp scissors.

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Supplies~Ivy Corners, Words & Phrases 1, Flourish Frame Sienna Mini.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Trim~Red Wrinkle Ribbon. I sprayed the ribbon with the Sued Glimmer Mist to age it and darken it a bit.

Paper from Graphic 45.

To finish the chipboard I used~Americana Cherry Red Acrylic Paint, Tattered Angels Suede Glimmer Mist, Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink, Wow Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
