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!!!!

I’m layering gray and white with the lightest blush pink to create  a creamy color palate.

This charming little snow angel is from the Winter Wishes collection from BoBunny. I’ve given her coat a nice layer of Sugar Glitter Paste so she looks like she’s out in the fresh snow.

These chippies were altered with mermaid tail embossing powder and heat set to look a bit like glass glitter.

Gorgeous flowers from Petaloo with a glittery finish to compliment the frosty effect.

Little Birdie Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well I had the best of intentions to share a Christmasy project everyday for Christmas in July….but our life is crazy busy right now and I’m just not really keeping up my post schedule that I had hoped for. I am however keeping up creating the projects so I’ll try to get caught up.

il_570xN.1234967800_a4oe

I got out the stamps and markers for this card and colored a sweet little birdy to sing a Christmas tune. I’m using Crafter’s Companion stamps and Spectrum Noir Markers. I added a bit of Wink of Stella but it’s difficult to see it in pictures.

The stamping around the edge is from BoBunny and it’s creates a bit of a border. I  didn’t have quite enough room for a sentiment…but this works great! Pretty flowers from Petaloo and some sequins to add detail.

il_570xN.1282200395_al19

Isn’t that a pretty frame? I added some coordinating embossing powder to a Flourished Circle Frame chippie and heat set it for a sparkly finish.  WOC Craft Berry Bead Sprays are tucked into the flowers to create a bit of a nest for the little bird. Last but not least…Checkerboard Satin in Tropic for a simple bow.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
