Be Your Own Kind of You Inspirational Art

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Lucky me today is my day to share the project I created specially for the matchup Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts is doing with Canvas Corp Brands.  Thank you Canvas Corp for the lovely selection of paper pretties to play with!

I was inspired by the image from the 7 gypsies Architectures Collection Ornate Frames.

To better coordinate with the flowers I colored over some of the clothing on this pretty vintage lady.

I really loved the texture from the torn out sheet from the Spiral Book so I made sure to leave a good long run of it on the side.

Matching flowers create a nice arrangement here with netting tucked in and topped off with pearly headed stick pins.

More flowers for the top. Dangling keys is a metallic finish to compliment her outfit.

This gorgeous frame is a bit of a nod to shabby chic….and helps to brighten this composition. Real vintage buttons are required here as new buttons would not have the right patina and character .

The inspiration sentiment was clipped from the packaging and the background is packaging too!

These chippies were wiped down to prepare them for altering.

They are finished in flat white paint. The frame is now done and ready to add to my project.

The keys got a layer of antique gold embossing powder and heat set with the tool very close to get a slightly bubbly effect.

Vintage Halloween Greeting Card

Standard

Well hey there! I’m just dropping in today to let you know that I have gone a bit crazy this week creating loads of Halloween projects and I just can’t wait to share them. I’m kicking off with this very vintagy inspired card. The thing I like best about holiday cards is that you can add them to your seasonal decor tucked into a vintagy arrangement or displayed on a shelf.

Now friends between you and me…I just love that green and purple have joined the line up for color palate for Halloween. I mean I will always use orange and black but the new additions really freshen things up don’t ya think?

Why not add a multi-layer bow? I’ve got complimentary patterns here and I think it looks awesome.

Ghostly Greetings

Standard

Hello there paper peeps! Just dropping in with a frightfully delightful greeting card I created with the new September Ribbon Club Halloween Assortment.

Isn’t it just fabulous? A great mix of traditional Halloween colors and patterns punched up with some fresh and vibrant new additions to the holiday  theme.

I created a very fun and festive card….

Isn’t it just too much???? I love me some layers!

I know this doesn’t quite take the record for the most paper layers I’ve added to a card…but it’s close.

The juxtaposition of the living and the dead with all these glorious flowers arranged on a skull in a cloche is just creepy in a beautiful way.

I’ve got some altered chippies here and a double layer bow.

A few prills and twine finish off this card with great detail.

Thinking of You Greeting Card

Standard

Good morning all of you wonderful peeps! I’ve pulled out all the stops for the card I’m sharing today.

Thinking of You Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

These beautiful papers are from Maja Design and were the inspiration for the dreamy color scheme.

Altered chipboard creates a doily effect.

Must add alllll of the flowers. These beauties are from Petaloo. Perfectly coordinating shimmery ribbon peeks out from behind the arrangement and helps to fill in the corner.

This pretty shabby styled key hangs from an additional bit of the ribbon and is topped off with a button. I’ve dresses the sentiment with pearly accents and a tiny clip.

Sequins are the final finishing touch and add pretty detail….but since they are clear it’s a subtle effect.

Find Joy Greeting Card

Standard
Hey there Peeps! Just dropping in with a greeting card so full of homespun country charm.

Yellow is not always my go to color…..but I’m quite please with it this time paired with warm woodsy brown.

Since it’s a countrified card, I’m adding burlap flowers and twine for a natural texture. Of course I added other more stylized flowers too to complete the arrangement.

This chevron ribbon makes the most perfect bow and topped off with the fancy brad, it’s just that much more awesome.

I always like the inside of my cards to be finished to coordinate with the outside.

If one die cut doily is good……then two must be better right? Last but not least a little clip and this card is ready to make someones day!

Live Simply Greeting Card

Hey there Peeps! Well just dropping in after a busy weekend of activities and home reno projects. Sometimes you have to go back to work to get some rest lol. I’ve got a sweet little all occasion card to share with a lovely sentiment and lots of great layering.

I used dies with a stitched border detail to create the background here and it give such a nice texture.

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!!!!
