Monochromatic Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Standard

Time for another fun challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon! This time the theme is Monochromatic and Ribbon or Trim.  I created a very purply Birthday card and added layers of patterned papers, gorgeous ribbon .

How Do You Expect Me To Remember Your Birthday Greeting Card 01

This ribbon is Satin Swiss Dots on Grape and it’s too perfect!

I got into my stash of Graphic 45 for these purply papers. Matted with grape colored cardstock to tone down the busy patterns.

These lovely Scribble Frame Butterfly chippies were easy to alter with a Spectrum Noir pen and some Stickles. I added some Prills also to finish off this card.

Okay now it’s your turn to create a fabulous Monochromatic with Ribbon or Trim and link up with us at RRR to play along.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

 

 

It’s Your Birthday Cupcake Card

Standard

Hey Peeps! Happy 1st of the month to all of you. You know it’s my favorite day since I get to share my first project with the new Ocean Breeze Ribbon Club Assortment.

These soft dreamy colors reminded me of sherbet…..so I was naturally inclined to make a card with something sweet on it.

It’s Your Birthday Cupcake Greeting Card

I really tried for a CAS card….but I think I may not have achieved it.  Oh well it’s CAS for me. I started with a fun cupcake stamp on coordinating papers to the ribbons.  The frosting has 2 layers of stamped images with Foam Tabs between for dimension. I added some Sugar Glitter Paste , a few sequins, and colored in the cherry with some Sparkle Pen.  It’s all layered on a small oval die cut that helps to separate the busy patterns.

 

This bow has 2 of the ribbons stacked and  topped off with a vintage button. The sentiment was cut into the shape of a banner and given Foam Tabs to pop it up. Those sweet little Pearly Stars are the perfect subtle accent.

 

A border in darker pink helps to anchor the lighter patterned papers. I’ve stitched around the card to add a bet of detail and finished the card on the inside with a coordinating pattern of paper.

Okay..a little more practice and maybe I’ll be better at Clean and Simple…but for now I quite like this card and I’m now obsessed with plaid frosting!!!

Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

We’re kicking off the summer holiday season with a fabby new Stars and Stripes Patriotic Creativity Kit!!!! So many festive paper patterns, vintagy images and prettied bows. Of course I got into one and whipped up some projects…because that’s what I do lol.  I have created 2 full sized cards, 2 large tags, 2 house tags (my favorite), and 2 wall hangings.

Spring Bird Card for Petaloo

Standard

Hey there  Peeps!  Ginny here to share a very springy and just a little bit vintage and shabby all occasion greeting card.  The inspiration was a lovely bird image with coordinating pattern papers that just called out to have a garden of flowers added to accent it.

I just love the soft pinks and wood grain together. I added a white die cut doily to brighten it up just a bit.

Multiple layers of matting helps to separate the patterned papers and provide a sturdy base to add oodles of gorgeous flowers.

Petaloo has so many lovely flowers that it’s very easy and fun to match up blooms to your projects.

Tucked in under more flowers at the top is a sweet little bird nest charm with pearly accents because cards need a little bling to be extra awesome.

Since this card turned out to have such a lovely nature inspired look I added a bow created with burlap and a little border of pink lace.

CAS Butterfly Greeting Card Set

Standard

Hey Peeps. Well I’m going CAS today. I know..it surprised me to. When I got my supplies out to create cards all the fun little images and die cuts just fell into place and I thought why not? Everything doesn’t need to have flowers and chippies and embellies. Sometimes you just need a quick card that’s good for any occasion that can be mailed in a regular sized envelope right?

 

I had a fun time mixing some vintagy patterns of paper with some that were just a bit edgy and on trend. Layers of die cuts, RRR trims, and simple pearly accents create loads of detail.

Diamond Satin Ivory.

Plaid Ribbon Apple Green.

Seam Binding Melon.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

All or Love Vintage Beach All Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m sharing a card today with a vintage beach theme that is near and dear to my heart. Our little family loves the beach so much we spend our Christmas holiday there.  A little sand….a little surf. IHOP(for those not in America IHOP is International House of Pancakes) for Christmas dinner. What could be better?

All our Love Vintage Beached All Occasion Greeting Card

 

I think these warmer tones of blue and kraft adds to the vintagy effect.

The shells and sand dollars make a great accent and work well to fill in the flower arrangement.

A scribble frame in a circular shape breaks up the square edges.

Tucking in some cheesecloth gives the effect of netting…a natural choice for a beach card. I love the texture it adds and helps to fill in the arrangement.

The bow has white stitching and helps to break up the dark blue satin.

Last but not least…..some coordinating Prills to give the effect of  water.

These chippies were fun and easy to alter to coordinate with the vintage beach theme....

1. The bare chipboard was wiped down to prepare for finishing. 2. Flat white acrylic to top off the scribble frame and gold to base coat the shells and sand dollars. 3. Crackle medium is added to the sand dollars and once dry a thin coat of white acrylic. Stamping on the frame and a bit of inking. 4. Distressing the edges makes the elements pop.
