The Greetery - Garden Variety Day 2...

 Good morning!  I want to start off by telling you about my comment situation.  First off, my comments are moderated because I get a ton of spam.  The kind of spam that tells me about cholesterol medication, among others, and just weird bot comments so I filter those out.  If you leave a comment and don't see it, thats ok!  I see it and I will get it posted for you.  The other issue is weather or not you need a google account.  I have my comments set to "anyone" so technically you should be able to leave a comment with any type of login, but Blogger is a pain.  If you can't leave a comment and are not sure if you your name is posting along with you comment, please add your name and email address to the end of your comment. This way we can see who you are if your comment gets chosen as a winner!  I am sorry for the annoyance.  I have no idea why it doesn't work like it should.  I have googled and switched settings around and tried all the things but Blogger is a pain.  If you have any suggestions at this point, send me an email! :)

SO, lets get on to day 2 of this amazing Greetery Garden Variety release!!  Remember that die I peaked yesterday?  Here it is! Garden Gear: Tools Die along with the In Spades Stamp and Stencil Set.  I mean come on...how cute is this?  


The Greetery


I kept it super simple with lots of white space but just adding in the stencil and stamp details on a white die cut.  I found some super cute wood grain paper for the handles.  I die cut the tools out of fun foam too, and then added that to the back of each tool die.  That makes the perfect dimensional.  I layered them on a Crimped Frame card front and then added the new Scripty Hello Die.  I love how intricate the die cut is!  


The next card uses the Seed Catalog Background Stamp, Its a Wrap Posy Pocket Die and the Botanicuts: Lavender Die.  I also added a big bold sentiment from Opposites Attract.  


The Greetery


This last card reaches outside of my white space comfort zone.  I used green cardstock with the Seed Catalog Background Stamp and paired it with the new Garden Gear: Gloves Die and Garden Gear: Gloves Print Stencil.  I added in the Scripty Hello Die to finish off this card!


The Greetery


Everything you see today and tomorrow will be available on Thursday, May 26th at 10am Eastern time.  You can click HERE to see it all!

Hello friends!  I hope you are all having a wonderful May!  This month has been so crazy for me....I have hardly been in my craft room.  My oldest graduated high school and with all of that comes all the busy.  I am so happy to have this amazing release to share with you as it was the well needed time to sneak away into my craft room, even for a short time.  You are going to LOVE the Garden Variety Release so lets get started!

This first card uses the new Print Shop: Garden Goodness.  This is an AMAZING stamp, stencil and die combo to create these beautiful blooms.  

I pulled out some past favorites....Painterly Stripes Background Stamp, Sprinkled with Kindness Stamp set and the coordinating die, Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You Stamp Set, Postal Frame Die Set and a new die set that you will see more of tomorrow!  :)

The Greetery


It was so fun to stamp out all of these images and layer them all together to create this fun little garden themed card. 


This next card is another new Print Shop! The Greetery has several Print Shop stamp sets with stamps and stencils that work together to create an amazing image or even patterned paper.  This new one is called Print Shop: Daisy Days.


The Greetery


I used the stencils and coordinated die to color and cut out this main image.  There is a stamp set that adds more details but I chose to just use the stencils this time.  The possibilities are endless when it comes to using this print shop.  I used my favorite die....the Crimped Frame Die to cut out the white panel and then again to offset the Daisy Days die cut edge and then lined it up with the white panel.  I used some glossy red enamel dots to finish off each flower. 


Everything you see today and tomorrow will be available on Thursday, May 26th at 10am Eastern time.  You can click HERE to see it all!

Thinking of You {Spellbinders}...

 This month's Glimmer Kit of the Month Kit from Spellbinders is a versatile one.  You can add the glimmer....or you can add in stitching!  The finished product is a very unique butterfly with lots of detail so you know the possibilities are endless!  I kept my card super simple....aside from the stitching....so let me show you how I did it!


Spellbinders


First, I created a white card base with a sentiment stamped at the bottom.  Next, I die cut the Magnolia Blooms in white cardstock so I would have a fun design to anchor the butterfly too.  


Spellbinders


With Coral and Black cardstock, I die cut the main butterfly out twice.  I die cut the stitched portion all in white and then added in pink and black stitching.  This part was super simple!  After layering all the parts together, including the black butterfly body and antenna, I used foam tape to pop it up on the card.  I finished the card with clear drops for a little extra detail.

So glad you stopped in today! Have a great day!
