A Proper English Tea Wall Hanging

Standard

Well Helllloooooo there Peeps!  It’s my day to share the project I created for the Petaloo~Creative Embellishments Blog Hop.  My inspiration is a proper English tea complete with tea pot, gorgeous flowers and altered chippies.

A Proper English Tea Wall Hanging

I chose some of my favorite flowers from Petaloo then altered the chippies to coordinate.

I gave the Ferns a base coat of white paint the dabbed on a few green inks to get mottled effect.  They really help to extend and anchor the flower arrangement.

There are smaller flourishes on top of the wreath that are finished simply with flat white acrylic paint.

I wanted this wreath to look a bit like a grapevine with foliage so I painted the circle in brown and the leaves in various colors of green.  This creates a nice frame for the tea pot.

I incorporated many shades of blues in the flower selection along with berries and a bit of burlap for texture.

Layered Cameo Tags

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share some very vintagy inspired tags with cameos .  I’ve never actually owned a cameo…..but now I think I may need to change that as these are so my style!!!

These chippies were a snap to alter so I went ahead and made several tags.

 

I’ve layered the Cameos onto some chippies that reminded me of doilies for an even more vintagy look.

I pulled out all the girly embellies like lace and ribbons to make these tags even more feminine.

Thoughts of Spring Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps!  I know I have thoughts of Spring as it’s been a long cold Winter. I created this card with bright cheerful colors, and a gorgeous selection of flowers.

I’ve chosen shades of purple for this card inspired by the gorgeous flowers.  Sadly I am not a very good gardener so all my flowers have to be Petaloo.

Oh my goodness there is so much texture here!!!! I’ve layered many types of flowers here and tucked in ribbon and twine and coordinating butterflies.

I’ve tucked in some altered chipboard and die cuts to enhance the floral theme.  These colors are bright and the patterns are busy so I used a solid purple cardstock to act as borders. Think Spring Vintage Inspired Greeting Card Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio 04

Additional flowers and butterfly here to balance the other arrangement.  The paper has been tattered and stitched and I added pearly accents for detail.

This paper from Graphic 45 was a nearly perfect match. I did alter the fairy just by using watercolor pencils and sparkle pens to color her wings and dress.

Nature Sketchbook Bee Yourself Greeting Card

Standard

Well hello there peeps!  Today is an exciting day for me to share a card I created especially to  be displayed at Creativation.   It’s got oodles of RRR trims and fun mixed media supplies. Nature Sketchbook from Graphic 45 and Petaloo flowers are the perfect combination with these gorgeous trims.

 

 

 

 

I’ve created a nice border strip with the layered Black Plaid, and Satin Swiss Dots. I’ve also tucked in some loopy bows of Black Burlap String.

Petaloo-Graphic45-Xyron Holiday Home Décor Blog Hop

bhp

Oh my goodness Peeps! what a fun adventure we going on with Petaloo, Graphic 45, and Xyron. I created a Christmas card and a festive holiday home décor piece.

Not only are we designing with the patterned papers and flowers but also with the super great adhesives.

Not only are we designing with the patterned papers and flowers but also with the super great adhesives.

I used the patterned papers to cover a ribbon spool and chipboard house then used the gorgeous flowers and embellishments to accent.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-03

Tinsel Trim, rhinestones with drop pearls a large jingle bell and tiny brush wreath are added and are detailed with “snow” to blend these elements into a frosty vignette.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-04

This rooftop was a real labor of love! Approximately elebenty hundred buttons are attached to the roof then given a generous coating of the “snow” and topped of with fine clear glitter. It’s a bit magical I think and even almost looks like frosting on a gingerbread house.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-05

As this in meant to be a home décor item I paid special attention to finish it all the way around.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-01

A few star picks and ribbon complete this holiday treasure and even got a little coating of the snow so they would coordinate.

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_01

What can I say??? Graphic 45 St. Nicholas Collection  and cards are a match made in heaven.  And I am all over this plaid!!!!!

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_02

I cut the large 12 x 12 inch paper border and mitered the corners to make it fit onto a 6 x 6 inch card then layered in a few additional patterns to fill in the background.

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_03

This selection of holiday flowers has me swooning. I added the pick along with twine, chipboard and a metal embellishment for this arrangement.

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_04

Incorporating  altered chipboard snowflakes topped with large pearly accents  really helps to add detail.

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_05

This is a very dimensional card and would make a great addition to holiday décor displayed on mantle or shelf with some ever greens and pinecones.

Delightfully Sweet Halloween Banner

Ohhh how I love a banner and I also love Rare Oddities and in my humble opinion this is a match made in heaven. I layered the patterned papers with fussy cut images, large dimensional flowers, and glittery die cuts then strung it on a cool graphic ribbon with tags between.

I had a blast creating this masculine inspired greeting card using the warm colors and richly patterned papers of Safari Adventure. Lots of layers with solid borders and spacers between for dimension.  I’ve added a doily die cut…but cut from black .There are also burlap flowers to add a lot of texture and fill in this arrangement I tucked in some black netting.  I think this might be very nice for just about any occasion….and after all…an elephant never forgets!

Vintage Inspired Back To School Lunch Pail

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Well we’re still sharing loads of fabulous back to school project inspiration here at Petaloo and I’m so excited to show off my Vintage Inspired Lunch Pail.   I used a store bought case with a great little handle and metal clasp so I could skip right to the fun part….adding layers of patterned papers and gorgeous Petaloo flowers. Of course you can’t carry your lunch in it…..but wouldn’t it be super sweet to display on a shelf and store small keepsakes from the school year???

ABC Primer Lunch Pail

ABC Primer Lunch Pail 1

I’m pretty smitten with how it turned out. This vintagy paper goes so well with the flowers.

ABC Primer Lunch Pail 2

It’s easy to go overboard with papers on cases like these so I just added a few layers on the sides where you would naturally change patterns like on the lid.

ABC Primer Lunch Pail 3

I will always love plaids and stripes together. It’s just so classic. Incorporating the ruler border at the bottom helps to offset the visual heaviness of the striped lid.

ABC Primer Lunch Pail 4

I love  the red tone of the Anenome…it’s just a bit darker so it coordinate really well with the vintagy patterned papers. I’m adding Darjeeling Mini Garden Rosettes to lighten up the arrangement along with the leaves from the package and some trims and twine.

ABC Primer Lunch Pail 5

All the layers are attached using spacers between to add a lot of depth and dimension.

ABC Primer Lunch Pail 6

This clasp and handle will make it easy to collect and save keepsakes from school. The flat bottom will keep it standing upright to make a fabby vintage display.
