Spring Décor Wall Hangings

Standard

Well hello there Paper Peeps! Ginny here to share some holiday décor that’s not specifically Easter but inspired by Spring so it can be displayed and enjoyed all season long.

Spring Tags Polly's Paper Studio Petaloo

I created 4 while I had the supplies out. Each has a coordinating  Post Card Nest Collage image so they are similar…..but just slightly different.

I started with a base of burlap adhered to sturdy chipboard then layered on all the paper pretties!

I love these flowers in shades of white and green. So perfect for spring.

There are more flowers tucked under the paper layers for added depth.  Chipboard painted in crisp white breaks up the busy paper patterns and adds texture.

I’ve added pretty coordinating ribbons, a wire hanger, wooden clothespin, seasonal brad, and washi tape to finish off these charming and just a little bit vintagy wall hangings.

Dream Hot Air Balloon All Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Well hello there Peeps! I had myself a good ol time working on this card getting totally overboard with the chippies and embellies. Sometime that little voice inside my hais says “more more more” I have tried to reign that voice in…but not today!

 

 

 

 

I’m using the gorgeous Tropical Taffeta, Bambo Cord,  and Burlap String from RRR.

Bee Home Decor Plaque w/ tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m rustling up some home décor today for my project inspired by my love of bees.  Our neighbor is a beekeeper so we get to enjoy lots of them in our flowering trees. Also my very good friend is also a beekeeper and provides us with gorgeous fresh honey : )

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s how I prepared the chippies…

All these fabby elements will be wiped with a cloth to prepare them for finishing.

Some of the pieces have been finished in patterned papers. Some have been inked black and some have been heat embossed.

A variety of embossing was done in metallic shades and the bee was just colored with a Spectrum Noir marker.

Dragonfly Wishes Home Décor Stand

Standard

Hey  Peeps! Let me just tell you that I have fallen for the Pentart Metallic Wax Paste.  Not only does it add a gorgeous detail to your creations…but it is also super easy to use. For my project today I’m upcycling a plaster frame stand that I sourced at a local discount store in the markdown section.

Life In Color was the perfect pairing for this frame. It’s kinda “arty” so I think the mixed media supplies work so great with it.

This frame has a lovely base with additional raised areas to highlight with the wax. It’s also super heavy so there is no concern that it  might tip over.

To round out the arrangement there’s a bit of netting and twine bows. Last but not least metal gears in coordinating silver.

I took out the glass part of the frame so I could add the brick background pattern then adhere the following layers with foam spacers.  Bling is always a good for an well placed bit of sparkle. These coordinate really well so the don’t contrast with the background.

So many layers!!!! This definitely has a very dimensional look, and the wax paste does the trick in making them stand out nicely.

Here’s the process of finishing the frame….

I was able to cover it in with only 1 coat of Pentart Creamy Acrylic Metallic Paint in Graphite. Yay for 1 coat!!!! After allowing to dry I used my finger and a very light touch to add the wax to the raised areas.  Easy Peasy. So much beauty for so little work!!!

Okay that’s all for me today. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative.

Not All Who Wander Card Collection

Standard

Sooooo I created these cards and totally forgot to post them. How on earth did that een happen???  I’m usually so excited to share things that I have to stop myself from posting 5 times a day lol. I just happened to spot them when I was scrolling my Instagram feed and boom there they were like little lost orphans : ( So today is the day for them, finally lol.

not-all-who-wander-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

I’ve been challenging myself to make some cards that art not quite as poofy so they are easier to mail in a regular envelope. This is so hard for me with all the pretties at hand that I want to attach.  This is a good compromise though……just enough without being too much.

excursion-vintage-inpired-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

More washi and handcrafted flowers with pretty brad centers. The kraft doily looks amazing with the black borders and tiffany blue and gold stripe tape.

take-me-away-bicycle-tag-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

I am super in love with this bicycle tag!!!! Also I added a layer of vintagy washi tape to act as a border…..and it matches perfectly to this Carta Bella paper.adventure-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

Vintage train tag???  Don’t mind if I do!  These polka dotty flowers are coordinating so perfectly!  It’s a little bit masculine…..but still having a lot of detail.

The best thing about these beauties aside from the fact that fit nicely in an envelope….they are really great for any occasion.

These cards are all available in the shop.

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

 

 

 

 

 

Irish Charm Wall Hanging Holiday Decor

Standard

Happy Saturday Peeps!  We’re looking forward to an almost springlike day here in Michigan and I’m so happy for a bit of a warm up. I’m dropping in to share a sweet wall hanging I created for St Patrick’s Day with an image from the new Irish Charm Tags Digital Collage Sheet.

il_570xn-1191811629_8fm1

This charming Irish lass is perfect for layering with patterned papers, and lots of embellies.

il_570xn-1191811625_kami

There’s a glittery shamrock here with gorgeous flowers in shades of green. I tucked in some berry picks and twine to fill in a generous arrangement.

il_570xn-1191811635_3mk3

Loopy bows tied of chevron striped twill are topped off with bows of twine and vintage buttons. There is also a length of the ribbon to display on a peg or hook.

il_570xn-1191811631_4aem

Chipboard altered with embossing powder and heat set creates a frame for the tag. I used spacers between the layers for depth.  I’ve got a fabby new thin striped washi tape that was perfect to add to the side of the tag  along with the enamel number plate and coordinating pearly accents.

il_570xn-1145205558_r8m7

I used a large die to cut the background with a border of  Celtic knots.  There are layers of 100 lb cardstock and printed scrapbook paper on the back for a finished look and for sturdiness.

Card To Welcome Baby& New Challenge at RRR

Standard

Hey there Peeps. We’re starting a new challenge at RRR today and the theme this time is Celebrate with Ribbon or Trim ….which you know I am all about lol.

I created a card to celebrate a new baby. I think it would look really lovely displayed in a nursery after the baby arrives.  Prop it on a shelf with some books and vintage baby toys.

precious-baby-boy-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio-01

This little puppy image was the inspiration for the card. I took the color cue from the border and incorporated the blues and greens.

precious-baby-boy-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio-04

So many glorious flowers all arranged with coordinating ribbon, Prills, spiral stamens, and twine.

precious-baby-boy-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio-03

A tiny metal charm hangs on this side and has more of the Prills and twine.  I used a tiny clip to attach a sweet label over fishtail shapes in matching paper patterns.

precious-baby-boy-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio-02

Metal mailing tags and additional flowers to balance the arrangement on the top with altered chippies that create a lovely border and sentiment.

Tattering the edges adds a lot of texture and spacers between the layers creates depth.  This card would make a great addition to the nursery décor.
