Thinking of You Greeting Card

Standard

Good morning all of you wonderful peeps! I’ve pulled out all the stops for the card I’m sharing today.

Thinking of You Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

These beautiful papers are from Maja Design and were the inspiration for the dreamy color scheme.

Altered chipboard creates a doily effect.

Must add alllll of the flowers. These beauties are from Petaloo. Perfectly coordinating shimmery ribbon peeks out from behind the arrangement and helps to fill in the corner.

This pretty shabby styled key hangs from an additional bit of the ribbon and is topped off with a button. I’ve dresses the sentiment with pearly accents and a tiny clip.

Sequins are the final finishing touch and add pretty detail….but since they are clear it’s a subtle effect.

Hey there peeps! I can’t believes I’m this far into Christmas in July  and haven’t created a shabby chic card until now. Must be the heat lol. I’m about to remedy the situation now and share this oh so light and dreamy card with a snow angel.

I’m layering gray and white with the lightest blush pink to create  a creamy color palate.

This charming little snow angel is from the Winter Wishes collection from BoBunny. I’ve given her coat a nice layer of Sugar Glitter Paste so she looks like she’s out in the fresh snow.

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

Gorgeous flowers from Petaloo with a glittery finish to compliment the frosty effect.

Layering the tiny tree die cuts from the paper collection and topping them off with a nice sprinkling of pearls. This chipboard sentiment has a printed snowflake and a blingy accent.

Last but not least….I’ve dabbed a fair bit of the Sugar Glitter Paste on the edges of the papers and tucked in a sweet little bow of seam binding and loops of twine.

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.

This arrangement is the perfect combination of soft muted colors and textures.  There’s a bit of twine and berries tucked in and a generous length of lace and washi tape.

Shabby Deer Greeting Card

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a lovely and shabby inspired greeting card I created with beautiful twine and some of the new fabby embellishments from the RRR store!

shabby_deer_greeting_card_pollys_paper_ginny_nemchak_bobunny_01

These little pearly accents are Pearl Daisy Flower Beads and they are so fantastic with a flat back making them really easy to adhere to your projects. In the past I’ve found vintage buttons that are not useable with a shank on the back that had to be cut off…but these have all the vintage look and they are ready to glue! RRR has loads of new embellies in lot’s of styles so you should really check em out.

And I got to use my new washi tape!!!!

I tattered up all the edges of the paper layers with the distressing tool which adds a nice texture. I’ve also included spacers between the layers for added depth.I tattered up all the edges of the paper layers with the distressing tool which adds a nice texture.

Shabby Christmas Bells Greeting Card

Shabby Chic Bells Christmas Greeting Card Cheery Lynn Ginny Nemchak Polly's Paper Studio
Hey there Paper Peeps. Ginny here to share a softly colored and shabby inspired Christmas greeting card created with the fabulous Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
Shabby Chic Bells Christmas Greeting Card Cheery Lynn Ginny Nemchak Polly's Paper Studio
I used the Rectangle Stitch and Cut die to create a background with the wood grain patterned paper then layered on a green and very subtly polka dotted pattern.  These gorgeous flowers were created with the Gardenia Strip and given a little inking and glitter to give them a frosty appearance.  The Christmas Bell was cut from silver cardstock with my very old cutting plate so I could keep the inside pieces from falling out. Once cut I added an additional piece of solid cardstock on the back to secure the pieces and trimmed it out. Once secure I was able add spacers behind the bells for dimension.  To fill out the arrangement I tucked in a sweet little snowflake stamped tag with twine.

The Swedish Spring Oval Frame is a lovely backdrop for the bells and an additional small flower arrangement. I couldn’t resist adding a layer of shabby style grey striped paper.
