Thinking of You Greeting Card

Standard

Happy first of the month Peeps. You know what that means. The all new Ribbon Club Assortment comes out today hooray!!!!!

I’m so happy to see this bright fresh combination because I’m getting in the mood for Spring and these are just perfect!

 

I’m using the gorgeous purple from the collection to accent this card.

It coordinates so perfectly with the flowers.

The Burlap String in violet adds a lovely texture to this arrangement.

I’ve added some foliage die cut from crisp white paper to lighten up the flower collection.

Altered chipboard and sequins adds loads of depth and dimension.

Last but not least some purpley Prills for the final accent.

Use Your Wings Large Tag

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m dropping in today to share a large tag I created with some of my favorite card making elements.

Use Your Wings Extra-Large Tag Polly's Paper Studio 01

I did mention it’s large right? It’s 5 1/4 x 9 inches. Go big or go home is what I say. BTW this also applies to french fries lol.

Use Your Wings Extra-Large Tag Polly's Paper Studio 02

Pretty lace and trim with bling and pearls anchor the bottom of this tag and add sparkle.

I’ve given a crackle finish to this Eiffel Tower chippie and layered a sweet sentiment on top. Matching sequins and die cut doily are the perfect accent to the textured chipboard.

The background pattern is applied with a Ranger stencil and grape colored ink. I’ve also inked the flourish die cut tucked into the flowers.

This lovely little butterfly was the inspiration for this tag.

I love these very purpley flowers so much I added some to the top and bottom of this tag. A bit of ribbon, and sugared berries, and Prills are the final element and I think they look great!

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.

Shabby Chic Valentine Cherub Cards and Tag with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello there Peeps! I’m happy to announce that we have a bit of a warm up here in Michigan. This morning it’s 52 degrees. This does good things for my disposition. I was in such a better mood that I was inspired to throw myself into Valentine projects.

I printed myself a copy of the Valentine Post Cards and Tags Digital Collage Sheet from our shop and created 3 very shabby and vintagy projects.

Be Mine Vintage Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This card has a very untraditional color scheme. I coordinated the papers to the wrap on the cherub. Altered chipboard, flowers, twine, sequins, and metal embellishments are the perfect accents.

Shabby Chic Valentine Doves Tag Polly's Paper Studio 01

A sweet and simple tag has soft colors and vintagy finishing touches. Using spacers between the layers build depth and interest.

Shabby Chic Valentine Cherub Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

The cherub tag on this card inspired the peachy pink colors from the paper patterns.  Stickles added sparingly brings out the details on the vintagy image. I layered die cuts here and a rather generously sized flower arrangement.

Please enjoy this video tutorial I’ve created for this card…..

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.

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.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello everyone! I’m still having so much fun playing with my Christmas crafting supplies and I’ve created a sweet card to share today with some holiday elements and some surprise additions.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This little snowman is just too cute.  It’s really a snow globe…..but I got a little carried away with the flowers…tee hee. And look…..vintage buttons. I bet you never saw that coming lol.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I bet you weren’t expecting blue flowers on a Christmas card right? But I think they look perfectly coordinated to the image. I used a bit of faux snow to give them more of a wintry look.  There are also silvery  berry clusters tucked in along with red flowers and twine.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I decided to use a double cardstock matting here to really make the layers pop. I really love this combination of red plaid and blue.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

This smaller arrangement balances the larger one. I’ve added Stickles to the leaves to accent them and make them more festive. You can see I’ve added a few pearls too….because you can never have enough bling.
