Happy New Year’s Greeting Cards with On This Day from BoBunny with Video

Standard

Hey There Peeps!

Ginny here to share two cards  made from the same collection. In fact they are made from the same sheet from the new On This Day collection.  Two cards with two very different looks…..

Happy New Year Greeting Card by Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using On This Day
For the first card I went all out with the layers and embellishments.  The sweet little snowman was the inspiration.

I created loads of added detail and texture with mixed media supplies and stencils. The 3D powder added to the snowman creates a frosty look. All the papers were edged with Pearlescents in Brilliant Blue.

I fussy cut snowflakes from the reverse side of the 12 x 12 sheet and added brads to create perfectly coordinating embellishments. To accent the edge of the image I applied a generous coat of Silver Glitter Paste.

I divided the Double Dot Flourish into two parts and added a bit to the top and bottom corners. Last but not least layered paper and crocheted flowers with ribbon and twine. A sprinkling of matching sequins to finish off this card.

For the second card I’m still using the images from the January sheet but this time going in a much more restrained direction.

I’m calling this a “woodland” inspired look mostly because there’s a woodland in the image behind the tag.

I brought in Double Dot papers in dot and chevron that coordinates with the tag.  I’ve alternated the scale of the patterns to keep it from getting busy. Spacers between the layers builds in depth and dimension.

Instead of one large doily I added two smaller ones and added them in an offset orientation.

Double Dot Jewels and clear sequins add detail without being over-the-top-busy.

Merry and Bright Snow Globe Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello everyone! I’m still having so much fun playing with my Christmas crafting supplies and I’ve created a sweet card to share today with some holiday elements and some surprise additions.

This little snowman is just too cute.  It’s really a snow globe…..but I got a little carried away with the flowers…tee hee. And look…..vintage buttons. I bet you never saw that coming lol.

I bet you weren’t expecting blue flowers on a Christmas card right? But I think they look perfectly coordinated to the image. I used a bit of faux snow to give them more of a wintry look.  There are also silvery  berry clusters tucked in along with red flowers and twine.

I decided to use a double cardstock matting here to really make the layers pop. I really love this combination of red plaid and blue.

This smaller arrangement balances the larger one. I’ve added Stickles to the leaves to accent them and make them more festive. You can see I’ve added a few pearls too….because you can never have enough bling.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Greeting Card with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Its November now so of course we are all in a mad rush to get cracking on our Christmas projects.  I find it’s much more fun to be creative now before all the hustle and bustle begins…not to mention baking loads of cookies and shopping  and cleaning.

 

This card has so much whimsical charm. I just love a snowman.

I’m using the chippie frame to be a sort of wreath behind the arrangement.

Pine cones and evergreens are always the perfect accent to holiday cards.

Tucking in a sew snowflakes…every snowman needs some snowflakes. Look how well the frame coordinates with the holiday patterned papers.

I think this festive card would look great used as Christmas decor sat on a mantle or shelf or tucked into a tree.

I chose the chippes and gave them a good wipe down to prepare the for altering.

Flat white acrylic paint is a great foundation for adding layers.

Finishing up with sparkly embossing powder makes them dreamy.

This color combination is very retro inspired and I was glad to alter the chippies to coordinate perfectly.

Let it Snow Christmas Tag

Standard

Hey there Peeps. Well we’re all counting down the days till Christmas and maybe sneaking in a few last minute crafty projects. Today I’m sharing a fun and festive tag with the great chippies from GSL and many mixed media supplies.

 

These chipboard pieces are from the Winter Shapes Set and were so much fun to alter. I’ve layered them with tinsel trim, die cut doily, ribbon, and dimensional flowers.

 

I finished the words in this sentiment with different mediums and added a bit of faux-snow and glitter glue.

I’ve added foam spacers between the layers which gave me room to tuck some of the flowers behind.

1. Choose chippies and clean edges to prepare the surface for finishing. 2. Base coat with flat white acrylic paint….add two coats if necessary. 3. Paint the snow part of the sentiment with red paint and stamp on a texture using archival ink. You will have to mask off the parts that contact the painted red sections.  4. The hat was given a coat of  black embossing powder and heat set to give a glossy finish. The small scarf is striped with the paints, markers, and permanent ink pens. Add glitter glue to the snowflakes and allow to dry before adding the faux-snow.

Using a permanent marker add green to the sentiment.  A layer of glitter glue on the scarf adds a festive sparkle.

Adding a sweet face gives the snowman a little personality…I did this with Spectrum Noir markers and a Signo white gel pen.

I added bits and pieces from my scrap and salvage box with the kit to layer them up. The crepe fringe is a great way to add texture. I also Stickled and inked them quite a bit.
