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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Greeting Card with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Its November now so of course we are all in a mad rush to get cracking on our Christmas projects.  I find it’s much more fun to be creative now before all the hustle and bustle begins…not to mention baking loads of cookies and shopping  and cleaning.

 

This card has so much whimsical charm. I just love a snowman.

I’m using the chippie frame to be a sort of wreath behind the arrangement.

Pine cones and evergreens are always the perfect accent to holiday cards.

Tucking in a sew snowflakes…every snowman needs some snowflakes. Look how well the frame coordinates with the holiday patterned papers.

I think this festive card would look great used as Christmas decor sat on a mantle or shelf or tucked into a tree.

I chose the chippes and gave them a good wipe down to prepare the for altering.

Flat white acrylic paint is a great foundation for adding layers.

Finishing up with sparkly embossing powder makes them dreamy.

This color combination is very retro inspired and I was glad to alter the chippies to coordinate perfectly.

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.
