Hearts on House Valentine’s Greeting Card

Standard

Here’s another sweet little Valentiny greeting card I created using items from my scrap and salvage box and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

IMG_0719-001The red paper rose was painted to lighten the color and an unexpected surprise was this awesome texture. I used Red Wrinkle Ribbon and berries and a generous length of Cherry Bakers Twine.

I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative. G

I really wanted to find the cord to the sewing machine.

Standard

I started my day poking around in the stock boxes from the shop in hopes of finding the cord to my sewing machine. Apparently this is to be a lost cause. I did however find a box of old artificial flowers. I decided to try some techniques for altering them. I didn’t care for them too much anymore….so if they got ruined in the pursuit of art all I was loosing was a little time.  I am THRILLED with how it turned out : )

Thank you Stella for displaying my flower with shabby chic style : ) I can’t even begin to tell you how many steps it took to get to this point lol.

I love it so much that I sewed on a pin back so I can wear it to dress up a sweater or tank top…or even a purse????

↓↓Before and After↓↓

No I am not playing a trick on you…this was the same flower!!! Not to say that yellow roses aren’t nice and all. LOL I like the after a whole lot better : ) And are you noticing that there are two flowers??? You guessed it…I will be giving this one a makeover too!

So I also finished a couple of cards to share with you.

Awwww. I love this vintage image from Graphics Fairy. She is too sweet.

Makes me wish I had a little girl. Or a bunny. Yeah I”ll take the bunny instead.

New favorite flower for a card. I found this ribbon while looking for that darn cord. Very easy and stitched up super quick.

I think I was channeling my inner Tim Holtz with all the ink on this card.

This was a purchased flower that I pulled apart and stamped, then added gold netting and a beautiful brad center. There’s a bit of twine looped in the back also for extra detail.

There’s like 5 different Distress Ink colors there haha. Once I got started it was hard to stop. I tucked this tag made with papers from My Minds Eye behind a glittery frame and layered it on a strip of typography from Jenni Bowlin Mercantile.

But….I did not find the cord to my sewing machine. Dang. Guess I’ll look again tomorrow. I might even find some more treasures to create with for my next post.
