This crow is just so cool. It’s layered over a vintagy clock which for some reason made me think of the expression Time Flies. Isn’t funny that phrases stick in your head?

These die cut feathers really fill in the arrangement and give it height….it also looks pretty cool right? They’re layered over a spiderweb and netting.

Harvest Blessings Greeting Card

Standard
Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in the the most falliest fall card I have ever made. 
I’ve got a very traditional turkey image layered over a cut apart tag and stacked on a pretty white doily and patterned papers.
I’m just going to call it right now….this taffeta ribbon is my favorite for fall 2017. It’s like orange…but sooooo vintagy. And it makes a lovely poofy bow.

I’m still working in the Autumn Harvest Ribbon Club selection and pulled out the gorgeous crocheted lace. A little twine wrapped around is the perfect finishing touch.

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

These chippies were altered with mermaid tail embossing powder and heat set to look a bit like glass glitter.

Retro Christmas in July Deluxe Creativity Kit and Projects

Standard

HoHoHo Peeps! Yes I’m sharing more fun and festive Christmas in July projects. And this time a Creativity Kit. Because I am obsessed with kits. I just love to open the package and sort out all the fabulous paper pretties and embellies. Of course I took one for myself because I’m a cheeky little elf lol. See what I did there?  Okay too much holiday humor. I put myself in the mindset of CAS cards this time and didn’t go overboard with all the extras on the finished projects. In fact…this time I only added cardstock to what was already included in the kit. So you could make these cards too…just as they are shown. Quick to create and easy to mail. And I was able to get 10 A2 sized cards from this kit. Naturally I added paper doilies, colorful clips, star shaped sequins, twine , and flowers to the kit so you can play with them too.

Life is Beautiful All Occasion GReeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a lovely and romantic styled greeting card I created with some sweet chippies and pretty patterned papers and flowers.

Life Is Beautiful All Occasion Greeting Card

 

Here’s how I created the card….

I selected these chippies because the window opening was just the perfect size to frame the image I chose from the patterned paper. Additional flourish pieces will be layered on top.

I gave a base coat of flat white to all the pieces….even the ones I planned to finish with embossing.

Once the flourishes were dry I added white embossing powder with flecks of pink and gold. After heat setting it’s a lovely shabby finish.

A layer of velum behind the window panes gives a sheer look and a base to add pink confetti for a faux shaker card look.

Oodles of pretty coordinating flowers and ribbon trim.

Sentiment banner layered over the larger flourish.

You can never have too many flowers so I added a few here to balance the arrangement on the bottom.  Small loopy twine bow to soften the corner.

This card is available in the Etsy Shop…..Life Is Beautiful All Occasion Greeting Card.

Gypsy Soul Laser Cut Supplies~ Cottage Window Large, Flourish Set Amanda.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies~ Pink Wrinkle Ribbon, Natural Burlap String, Bakers Twine Cotton Candy.

Petaloo Flowers.

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