I stamped and die cut several of the watermelon and added in one lemon.  I added the pile to a scored, white card base.  After stamping the sentiment along the bottom, I cut off just a little piece of the white card front and added some green Cardstock behind it, just to add a little color.

The Greetery Sweet and Sunny Release Day!

Today is release day at The Greetery!  I have had so much fun working with all the things.  Those bees!  The honey pot!  LOVE!!  The Hollyhocks are amazing and I really love all the Jumbo Curiosity!

I made one last card to share using some old products and some new!  First up, Hoop and Fringe.  I die cut the hoop and fringe both out of white cardstock and then added in some teal inking to the top of the fringe. 


The Greetery


Once I had these glued together, I layered them onto a light gray cardstock, with masked off washi stripes of light gray ink.  I heat embossed a sentiment from Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You and then die cut it with a Sentiment Suite Die.  After adding color to the Jumbo Curiosity: Butterfly Die, I added it to the card with foam tape.   


The Greetery


I bet you are excited about today!  You can click HERE To see the full release over at The Greetery! A big thank you to those of you who shop my links.  When you click on my links here, a small percentage of the sale goes to me at no additional cost to you!  I appreciate it so much!


 Have a great day!

The Greetery Sweet & Sunny - Day 2

Hello friends!  Today is day 2 of the Greetery Release countdown.   Tomorrow is release day!  Today though....come hang out with me over on the Greetery's Instagram at 11am and I will show you all the new stamps and dies.  Stop in and say hi!


Today we have several more new products to share.  This first card showcases all 3 Honey bees from yesterday but today's new project is the Leaves All Around Stencil and die.  


The Greetery


I also added the sentiment in from the Buzz Worthy Sentiments and Die Set.  I love how fun those big sentiments are to pop up on the card front.  


The Greetery


Another new die set available tomorrow is called Jumbo Curiosity: Butterfly Die and Stencil Set. These new dies are SO much fun.  The die cuts out the butterfly and the stencil adds in the color and details.  In today's case, I actually cut 2 butterflies I half and gave it a new look.  The other fun thing is that I die cut the butterfly out of black card stock and then used Picket Fences Golden Rose Paper Glaze to give the butterfly the monarch look.  I used a white gel pen to add in the dots.  I added it to the Jumbo Jar Die after I added in the Blooming Branch.  I layered it on the jar and the card base so it has that layered look.  I finished the card off with a heat embossed sentiment strip and a silver jar lid.


The Greetery


Last card for this week's release....there is a new Botanicut in town!  The Hollyhocks!  These dies are just beautiful and so easy to layer up.  I die cut them all out of water color paper and then added watercolor as I went along.  Super easy and quick to color!


The Greetery


I layered them on a Postal Frame Die, also die cut from water color paper, after blending a sky and some grass in the background.  To finish off the card, I used the Opposites Attract Hot Foil Sentiments and Opposites Attract Dies on the bottom of the card.  Look at that shine!


The Greetery



I hope you have enjoyed my projects today  , but there will be so much more to see over at  The Greetery Blog!  Be sure to comment on every stop on today's list, for more chances to win one of the two $50 gift cards that will be given away today!

The Greetery Sweet & Sunny - Day 1

Welcome to day 1 of the latest Greetery Release called Sweet and Sunny.  I am totally in love with this months release because so many of these fun new products work great for my clean and simple style!  Let's get started!


The first products I wants to share are all about the Bees and Honey!  For this card, I used Honey Jar Stamp and Die Set along with the Honey Comb Corners Die.  You know I love to go back in and use past Greetery goodies, so I also used the Slim Alphabet Die along with the All Kinds of Happy dies.  I used the Honey Comb Corners to add a little dry embossing, after I blended in the yellow ink on both corners.  I stamped and die cut the bees and honey pot and added those to the card front.  Using black fun foam, I die cut the sentiment from those past die sets and then finished the card off with a little Nuvo drops for the honey and a little red heart from the Heart Bits Sprinkles.  


The Greetery



For this next card, I am showcasing to little friends on a card using some of our favorite strawberries.  First, I built a little wooden wall using the Ship Lap Builder Dies and then added in a little batch of berries from the Botanicuts Strawberry Dies.   I grabbed the Silver Lining Die and cut the clouds out of white card stock and then used them for a stencil to ink blend in some light clouds in the background.   Using a sentiment from Simple Things Stamp Set, I added that in with black ink.  Last, I die cut the new little Honey Bees, colored them up with Copics and gave them some vellum wings.  I popped them up on foam squares to finish off the card. 


The Greetery



Todays last card uses the new Honeysuckle Stems Stamps and Die.  To create this card, I masked off the top of the card base and ink blended in some light gray ink.  Then I used last months Seed Catalog Background Stamp in the same gray ink to add a little detail to the bottom of the card.   I stamped out the Honeysuckle and die cut the image and then die cut a piece of fun foam.  I lined the back of the image with the fun foam to make the bloom dimensional and then added that to the card front.  Last, I die cut the Lets Have a Word: Birthday Die in black fun foam and added that to the card. I masked of a tiny happy sentiment from Sentiment Suite: Birthday Stamp Set and added that in black ink.



The Greetery


That's it for me for today, but there will be so much more to see over at  The Greetery Blog! Be sure to comment on every stop on today's list, for more chances to win one of the two $50 gift cards that will be given away today!
