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.

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.

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 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.
