Shabby Chic Flower & Tag Tutorial

Hello, G45ers!

How to Shabby Chic your Graphic 45 Paper Die-cuts

Today I'm going to share with you how to shabby chic your Graphic 45 flower die-cuts.

 

 

Currently, I'm working on a shabby chic project, using my papers from Graphic 45. 

I wanted to make my project in a shabby chic style so I went through my Graphic 45 paper pads; and I came across my 12×12 Cafe Parisian patterns and solids.   I pulled out the dotted beige sheet to die-cut some flowers, using the Graphic 45 Large Tag, ATC Tag and Flowers die-set.
 

Once I had glued my flowers, I pulled out regular white color craft paint and dry-brushed the edges of each flower for that shabby chic effect.
 

 

I was so pleased with the results that I applied the same principle to my Graphic 45 Rose Bouquet flowers.

Graphic 45 Shabby Chic Tag Tutorial

By Sandi Nagel

 

I'm sharing my Graphic 45 Shabby Chic Tag process.  For this tag, I’m using the Graphic 45 Garden Goddess 8×8 Paper Pad, a tag from the Regular Tag Album, dies and flower embellishments by Graphic 45.  I also use trims from my stash to add to that Shabby Chic effect.

As you can see, I’ve already laid down the base for our shabby chic tag. I’m using the Regular Tag and Gears die-set to die-cut the insert. I also die-cut a smaller insert using the ATC Tag die from the Graphic 45 Large Tag, ATC Tag and Flowers die-set.

 

 

With the use of white craft paint and a foam applicator, I’ve applied a dry-brushing technique around the edges of my paper and flower embellishments.

 

 

I then apply foam squares to the top of the back of the sunflower fairy ephemera card for some dimension.

 

Next, I hot glue a strip of gauze to shabby up the bottom corner.

 

To balance the shabby with the elegant, I hot glue a beaded trim on top of the gauze piece.

 


 

I then add some flourish and leaf embellishments for the backdrop to my flowers.

 

 

I hot glue a waterfall of flowers to the bottom and right to balance the ephemera piece on the top left of my tag.

 

 

Lastly, I add a Sentiment from my stash.
