I Love You Valentine Typewriter Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there! It’s Ginny here to share a very fun and whimsical Valentine greeting card.

I mean who doesn’t like a vintage typewriter? So much better than a text message or email right?
I was lucky to have some patterned paper in my stash that had type keys and the background was red so it was a perfect match! 
This sweet little sentiment was part of that same paper pad from Martha Stewart. The crisp white doily helps to break up the busy patterns.
I chose the flowers and the polka dot ribbon to coordinate.
One more flowers for the top and a tiny little love mail charm.
Last but not least a few blingy pearls.
Finishing this chippie could not have been easier….it’s just a metallic paint in graphite. So Simple!

Making Valentine’s and Listening to Lord of the Rings

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Back again today to share the results of my crafty day of Valentine card making.  I used the ephemera from the Simple Stories Romance Collection along with a few bits and bobs from my stash. I got all the paper pretties out and started The Lord of the Rings Audio Book to listen to and before you know it…..I had a big ol pile of holiday cards! Yes I know I’m  geek….but in my defense I do live in a house of all boys so the entertainment selections are not very girlie lol.

I’ve used darker matting and spacers between the layers for added depth and to keep it from looking busy.

In place of my usual die cut doily I’m using an altered chipboard frame finished off in a ballerina pink acrylic paint. I’ve added a second sweet sentiment to the top and clipped it on for good measure.

So. Many. Flowers. Tucking in some die cut leaves and tiny loopy twine bows builds up this arrangement and Stickling on the leaves adds just a hint of sparkle.

Heart and Soul Valentine Wall Hanging

Standard

Hey there peeps! Ginny here to share a very whimsical and sweet Valentine wall hanging.

Isn’t this the most charming Charlie with his knickers and bow tie???
He’s got  heart shaped balloons with a glittery edge.
This Tryptich has a crackle finish and is lined with coordinating papers.  Two very poofy bows with twine and buttons secure the hanger to the wall hanging.
Gorgeous flowers, tinsel trim, and sequins are perfectly coordinating details.
Wheels added to the tryptick creates a bit of a gypsy wagon effect and are accented with pearly topped brads. Last but not least vintage buttons and a chipboard sentiment.
Here’s how I altered the chipboard…..

1. Select chipboard and wipe clean. 2. Trace background onto patterned paper. 3 Add second line just inside the outline and clip out on the inside line. 4. Adhere paper to base.

5. Check to make sure the base is completely covered with the patterned paper. 6. Paint chipboard with metallic silver acrylic paint. 7. Add a layer of crackle medium to the top of frame and follow the directions for the specific crackle you use. 8 Once dry add a coat of white acrylic paint and allow to dry again to reveal the cracks.

Vintage Love Valentine Tag

Standard

Happy Wednesday Paper Peeps!  It’s just been terrible cold here in Michigan so I’ve hunkered down in the shop to keep warm and to create loads of Valentiny projects.

 

I’m totally into the black and pink color combination this year along with vintage images and trims from my favorite Ribbon place : )

Pretty flowers and pearly accents just feel so right on vintage projects….and Valentine ones too!

This Rose Petal Seam Binding is so lovely and makes the perfect bow along with some Natural Burlap String.

I don’t even know where to begin to tell you how happy this combination of stripes and polka dots makes me. It super girly combined with the florals and having spacers between the layers keeps the patterns from being too busy.

Valentine Card with Graphic 45’s Children’s Hour with Snapguide Tutorial

Standard

Oh how I love a card about love!  The fabulous teeny tiny patterns in the Children’s Hour 6×6 Patterns and Solids Pad are just right for layering so I matted them in a dark chocolate brown and topped them with sweet vintage images from the February Collective page then embellished them with pretty fussy cut and dimensional flowers. There’s also ribbon trim and charming love buttons : ) I am swooning over this very Valentiny card.
