You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Did I mention that I love to create Valentines? I mean….I think you all have figured it out by now. So many flowers and bows and hearts…and if you’re lucky some sweet treats and snuggles. What’s not to like????

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This has all the important parts right?

You are Loved Valentine Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Inspiration comes from this fabby paper collection So Loved from Photoplay.

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

Pretty poofy bow topped with twine and a vintage button and accented with a lovely bird charm.

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.

Shabby Chic Christmas Wall Hanging Holiday Home Decor

Standard

Hey there Chrsitmas Peeps! I’m sharing a very sweet and shabby chic inspired Christmas wall hanging using Carousel Christmas from BoBunny. Not gonna lie..I kinda love it!

Jingle Bells Shabby Chic Christmas Wall Hanging Ginny Nemchak BoBunny Carousel Christmas

I just think Carousel Christmas is the dreamiest holiday collection.

I started this project thinking I wanted to create a shadow box styled ornament with painted mason jar lid…but before I knew it I had a wall hanging in front of me.

The lid is finished with a coat of Gesso then filled in with festive images and accented with faux snow for a frosty look.

Additional images are fussy cut and layered on with spacers for nice dimension. I’ve added a tinsel hanger and coordinating bows to hang.

The chipboard snowflakes are also finished with the Gesso then top coated with Glitter paste….because every shabby chic wall hanging needs pink sparkly snowflakes.

You can see the dimension I was able to get by adhering the elements with foam spacers between the layers. There’s a bit of the die cut doily peeking out here and I think it adds texture as well as a visual break from the patterned papers.

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.

Shabby Chic Christmas Snow Angel

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

il_570xN.1249897250_o368

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.

il_570xN.1297141555_6hw7

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

il_570xN.1249897268_3im2

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.

Easter Wall Hanging Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio 03

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

Standard

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.

shabby_deer_greeting_card_pollys_paper_ginny_nemchak_bobunny_02

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

shabby_deer_greeting_card_pollys_paper_ginny_nemchak_bobunny_03

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.
