Beautiful Clock All Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps!  So you know how when you have elements of a project come together just right?  Don’t you love when that happens?  When I created this project I was inspired by the clock chipboard embellishment. I checked out some digis from my shop and low and behold the clock image with the gorgeous vintage rose fit perfectly. I mean it was like meant to be!!!

With the chipboard and image picked out I gathered flowers with the same peachy pink tones and fairly neutral background papers.

I’ve just been working on a major reorganization of my shop and I just cleaned up all the ribbons so I knew right away that I had this shade.

Since the layout turned out to be a bit bottoms heavy I added some metal keys, another flower and leaf, and twine to anchor it with a vintage button.

Shabby Chic Spring & Easter Decor

Standard

Happy Tuesday Peeps! I’m always so cheered up to see a bit of spring after a long cold winter. I’m not a gardener…..but we live in the country and I do enjoy seeing the farmers tilling up their fields and the animals spending more time out of their barns. My projects for today have springy flowers and little sweet bunnies.

I’m using the Vintage Easter Bunny Ticket Digital Collage Sheet from my shop for the inspiration. These are available for instant download so you can create some Easter themed décor too!

Spring Wall Hangings Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio

I used 2 bunny tag images from the same collage sheet and created a wall hanging and tag.

Because I was hoping for a country chic look I used the stitched burlap trim to create poofy bows and used sturdy wire to create a hanger.

The paper has a wood grain pattern and it’s used to create a base as well as a tiny envelope to tuck the tag into.

Loads of flowers mixed in with lace, die cut doilies, and altered chipboard.

Ribbon trim and twine help to anchor the arrangement and Prills, pearly headed pins and epoxy embellishments fill it in.

This tag is full of country charm with the checkered background and burlap flowers.

Vintage buttons, butterflies, and clip are simple  but add quite a lot of detail.

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well I bet you thought since we’re starting a new Show Me The Green Challenge that I would be making a St Patty’s Day themed project. Surprise! I didn’t hehe. I made a wall hanging inspired by a sweet and thoughtful sentiment from a cut apart on my fav new paper collection.

There’s a strip of gold and white striped washi to coordinate with the butterflies. Vintage buttons are always the right answer.

So. Many. Flowers. Sisal and loopy bows made from twine are tucked in to fill in this generous arrangement.

I Love You Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Happy first to all of you. And it’s a happy first for me as well because I get to share a project created with the new March Ribbon Club Assortment.

What a colorful collection of satin and grosgrain ribbons!

 

I was so inspired by the Daffodil Checkerboard Ribbon that matched the Petal Lane Collection that they could have been made to go together.

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps!  I know I have thoughts of Spring as it’s been a long cold Winter. I created this card with bright cheerful colors, and a gorgeous selection of flowers.

I’ve chosen shades of purple for this card inspired by the gorgeous flowers.  Sadly I am not a very good gardener so all my flowers have to be Petaloo.

Oh my goodness there is so much texture here!!!! I’ve layered many types of flowers here and tucked in ribbon and twine and coordinating butterflies.

I’ve tucked in some altered chipboard and die cuts to enhance the floral theme.  These colors are bright and the patterns are busy so I used a solid purple cardstock to act as borders. Think Spring Vintage Inspired Greeting Card Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio 04

Additional flowers and butterfly here to balance the other arrangement.  The paper has been tattered and stitched and I added pearly accents for detail.

Steampunk Expedition Greeting Card with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps!  I’ve got a little steampunk inspiration coming your way inspired by some gorgeous masculine papers with hot air balloons. I pulled out some of my favorite steampunk chippies from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and loads of mixed media supplies and beautiful flowers.

Here’s a look at how I altered the chippies….

The most important thing is to select chipboard that will enhance your project.

Even if I’m going to finish the chippies with dark colors I base coat them in flat white paint.

I used a very thick coat of Iron Paste from Pentart and allowed to dry. Next I globbed on 3D Matte Gel from art basics to add a lumpy bumpy texture, then heat set to encourage the bubbling.

Using a cosmetic sponge I dabbed and smooshed on loads of alcohol inks.

I finished up the card with flowers, micro beads and twine.

Petaloo ~Chantilly Collection – Mixed Blooms Flowers – Blue Green, Darjeeling Collection – Floral Embellishments – Hydrangeas – Teal, Mixed Textured Mini Blossoms Teal

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts~ Hot Air Balloons Net Style, Hanging Clock Set, Steampunk Shape Set.

Carta Bella~ Old World Travel

Additional Supplies used~ art basics -3D Matte Gel, Finnabair-Bronze Micro Beads,  Pentart-Iron Paste, Ranger Adirondack -Pitch Black & Rust, Ranger Alcohol Ink-Butterscotch & Stream & Copper.
Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G

Hey Peeps!  It’s that time of year where I’m looking out the window of the cold wind and snow and thinking how much I wish it was Spring.  It doesn’t seem to want to warm up outside so I’ll have to make my own Spring by layering up pretty patterned papers and adding oodles of gorgeous flowers to my projects.
