Enjoy Today All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’ve got a garden full of gorgeous Petaloo flowers layered over patterned papers.

I’ve got a lot of pattern going on here but solid borders between the layers keeps everything from being jumbled up.

These flowers have such fun bright colors and match the paper perfectly. This arrangement has a sweet bow in a chevron printed twill and some loopy twine bows to work as filler.

The smaller arrangement on top has a lovely metal charm with an inspirational message.

Okay that’s all for my project. On a very personal note. I’d like to express how much I have treasured my time working for the Petaloo Brand. Cheryl has been such an inspiration for me to create with the amazing flowers and embellishments . Her support for the team and all of her hard work behind the scenes to make us shine will never be forgotten. I consider her a wonderful team leader and friend. Speaking of wonderful team…..I couldn’t ask for a better group of designers to work with. Not only are they top notch in their field…but they are really sweet and funny and generous and I am lucky to know them. With the ending of the Petaloo blog we’ll all be on to different things…but we will still be together in spirit. And last but not least a big thank you to all of you who supported our team by enjoying the blog and commenting and sharing your appreciation for our creations. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Sand on the Seashore Shadow Box for Lindsey

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here with an extra special project I created as a gift for my Daughter in Law for her Birthday. The story behind this project is our first vacation we took all together after she joined our family. We went on holiday to the beach as we do for Christmas and had a wonderful time. She and I happened into a craft store and she found a little package of glass bottles and she mentioned how much she liked them. A light bulb went off and I decided right then and there to create a shadowbox for her and include a tiny bottle filled with sand from the beach from our first family trip.

I altered many chippies to embellish a recycled candy box to create the shadow box.

 

There’s the little jar of sand. I wrapped a bit of twine around it and added some tiny key charms.
A vintage jewelry finding was layered onto the altered chipboard for accent.

Loads of flowers to coordinate with the beachy color scheme and to disguise the structure holding the tiny sand jar. There’s a printed bible verse in the frame with a lovely sentiment to let her know how much we love her.

I created faux netting by spraying cheese cloth then twisting it in and around the flowers and inside the box.  A few little loops of roping completes the nautical embellishing.

1. Wipe down the chippies to prepare them to be altered. 2. The base is finished with a layer of flat white acrylic paint and the flourish pieces are dabbed with Distress Paint in Peacock Feathers. 3. I’m incorporating the portion of the chippies that would usually be discarded to create the front opening of the box. It’s been finished with the Distress Paint  and the snipped Deco Frame pieces are also. Using 3D Matt I adhered the flourish pieces to the frame base and allowed it to set. 4. The Deco Frame pieces are added to the box front and ready to attach to the candy box. I filled in the frame with Sugar Glitter Paste then sprinkled in 3D Powder and Micro Beads. This took quite a while to dry but well worth it!

A generous coat of Glitter Paste tops off the frame. I decided to grunge up the sides just a bit too which you can see in the finished pictures : )

Gypsy Soul Chippes~Deco Frames 6 Inch, Doodle Frame Rectangle.

Flowers from Petaloo~Botanica Magnolia Mix Blue/ Green, Mixed Textured Elements Teal, Burlap Poinsettia Teal, Botanica Vintage Velvet Mini White.

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

Down by the Sea Cards for BoBunny

Standard

Hey  Peeps!  I’m coming at ya today with two very different cards made from the same paper collection.  It just really shows the versatility of Down by the Sea from BoBunny. I have 1 card that is just a bit glam chic with pinks and golds. The other card is really beachy and outdoorsy.

I think these cards would be perfect for just about any occasion.

Follow Your Heart Greeting Card  by Ginny Nemchak using BoBunny Down by the Sea Collection

 

Pink and gold together is so glam! I was inspired by the cut aparts. I’ve used the gold for matting and accents and stacked the cut-aparts to create a nice focal point.

To create these flower embellishments I stamped the floral image and added gold embossing powder. Once it was heat set I added a little Pearlecents for a really subtle bit of color and clipped it out leaving a small border. There’s a die cut doily there tucked in under the sentiment and starfish and a layered chipboard sticker on top.

I am now completely obsessed with Confetti Paste and this gold matches my project perfectly!

Life's a Beach Greeting Card  by Ginny Nemchak using BoBunny Down by the Sea Collection

This is the second card and it is really cute and beachy.

With the first card, I layered the cut aparts…but this time I added stitching for a subtle detail and texture. The focal point here is the layered chipboard sticker. Pearly accents work great with the natural feel of this card, and give it a touch of an upscale underwater feel.

I’ve tucked in a smaller doily this time….but added the same confetti paste and I think it looks great on both cards.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Pockets w/ Tags Petaloo~Maja Design Spotlight

Standard

Hey there Petaloo Peeps! So very excited to share the projects I created for the Petaloo ~ Maja Design product spotlight.

 

I decided to create favors since every party is more funner when you get to take a treat home. These pockets have tags but there’s still plenty of room to tuck in a little gifty.

 

Party Favor Pockets Petaloo Maja Design Product Spotlight

These pockets are created with the gorgeous patterned papers from Maja Design.

Pink Pocket

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using the same basic layout for all of the pockets and layering them on burlap for a consistent look. The natural fiber adds a nice texture as well.

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 02

A tiny crocheted doily is a great shabby chic accent and creates a nice base to layer on the beautiful flowers.

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 03

I’ve lined the pockets with a coordinating patterned paper so it will look just as nice without the tags and treats.

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 04

Tags are a great place to add a picture or some journaling on the back. Or maybe even affix a gift card?

Purple Pocket

Stitching around the pockets is a nice subtle detail and adds structural stability to the pocket so you can fill it up without worrying about it coming apart.

Purple Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve tucked in some pearly picks coordinating ribbon to enhance the flowers.

Vintage buttons are added to the top of the pockets.

Adding a matching bow and flower to the top of the tag helps to bring the balance to the top of the pocket.

Blue Pocket
