The Confetti Collection Day 2 {The Greetery}...


Hello and welcome to day 2 of the full Greetery Reveal!  Before I get started, I wanted to remind you that I will be over on The Greetery's IG at 11am CST today (Thursday)!  I am going to show you all the new products in real time and answer any questions you may have.



Let's get started with today's projects....



The Greetery


This first clean and simple card was made using the new Pinwheel Party Stencils.  These are the most genius stencils and make the most adorable pinwheels on your cards.  I grabbed the little stencils in the pack and added in 3 small pinwheels.  I used the Pinwheel Party Stamps to add in that big sentiment and little stars all in black ink.  I traced the sentiment in Glossy Accents to make it pop!

I wanted to use the Pinwheel Party dies with that adorable Let's Party sentiment, so I added it to one of the Balloon Bouquet balloons.  I figure with these soft yellows and oranges, this "Let's Party" means a garden party!  LOL!  I added in some masked strips with yellow in the background and then layered the balloon and sentiment to finish it off.

Using the Pinwheel Stencils again, I created a vertical card used the 4 stencil set.  These are so fun to work with and SO easy to line up with the etched lines.  I used the negative of the lets' party from my second card and popped it up on fun foam.  I finished this card off with some confetti dies and sequins.

Last but not least, I used the new Cake Pops Dies in a different way than intended.  I used The Greetey's Tag dies to create a set of tags perfect for a party!  

In this mix here are the Cake Pops Die Collection, the Cake Pops Numbers Candles Die Collection, Cake Pop Banner Die Collection and the Cake Pop Sentiments Mini Stamp Set.  I had so much fun making  these tags and adding all the details in.  Check out the Greetery Blog to see what they are really intended for!  :)

The Confetti Collection Release {The Greetery}...




Happy Wednesday, friends!  Its time to share Day 1 of the Greetery Reveal with you.  There are lots of new stamps and dies in this release and, of course, they are all amazing!

Let's get started with a rainbow...


The Greetery


This new stamp die combo called Think Happy is absolutely beautiful.  It comes with the rainbow and that cloud full of adorable blooms!  There I also a small coordinating stamp set that goes along with it filled with the perfect sentiments.  Using several coordinating colors, I pieced everything together to create this simple scene.  I finished it off with a sentiment and some clear drops.

In this project, I used the new stamp set called Balloon Bouquet and its coordinating dies.  This big balloon image is so gorgeous with all those flowers.  And of course, the set has lots of sentiments in that amazing handwritten font.  I added the balloons to a white card base with a couple of the Crepe Dies in the background to keep it simple!

Birthday Blooms is another new set this month.  The coordinating dies work with the sentiments in the stamp set to create a beautiful statement!  For this card, I stamped the blooms on a white card panel and then added in a little ink blending around the edge.  I die cut the sentiment from the panel and then stamped the sentiment on the card base.  I popped up the front panel on foam tape and then added in the postage details from the Pretty Postage Stamp Set.

And one more quick card because all I want to do is stamp these balloons!  I masked off the background after adding in a couple of the Crepe Dies.  I added ink blending to the center of the masking and then added in the balloon.  This time I only stamped the flowers on a white balloon die cut and finished it off with clear drops.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Anemone Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hello friends!  Welcome to the Altenew Paint-A-Flower Hop!  The latest stamp set is so beautiful.  It is the Anemone!

Keep reading to see my clean and simple project, the details on Altenew's giveaway and the full hop list of stops. 


Here is today's project....


Altenew


Always choosing the clean and simple route, I used today's stamp set in a different way.  I grabbed markers from Altenew's Alcohol Maker Set D and created a striped background.  


Altenew


I stamped the large cluster of blooms right over the top in Obsidian Black Ink.  After I cut the panel down to 4" x 5 1/4", I popped it up on fun foam and added it to a white card base.  Last, I added in the black fun foam hello from the Envelope Liner Die set.  I love this graphic hello!


Altenew


Altenew is releasing their Alcohol Marker Refills today, along with the newest Paint-A-Flower.  Stop by the Altenew shop to see the full release!

Thanks for all you do {Spellbinders}...

So by now I am sure you have heard of the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System.  Just in case you haven't, Spellbinders has this super cool dock and platform that heats up these metal plates.  The plates come in all kinds of designs and sentiments and other details.  Once these plates are heated up you run the plate, some foil and cardstock through a die cut machine to add the foil details to your card.  Just like this....


Spellbinders


There is an amazing set of plates called Essential Glimmer Rectangles.  You can use one at a time for the cutest polka dot frame, or use all 3 like I did.  I found a piece of patterned paper and then added the foil dot frames to get this look.  I grabbed Altenew's Wallpaper Art for this gorgeous black and white bloom and leaves.  I die cut each piece out and added it to the card front.  


Spellbinders


Next, I used a foil plate sentiment "for all you do" from this month's Glimmer Plate of the Month Kit from Spellbinders.  If you don't know about this kit, check out the details HERE.  When you subscribe, a new kit of plates comes to your door every month! It's like a little crafty surprise on your door step!  


Spellbinders


To finish off the card, I used a "thanks" die from Simon Says Stamp and added in some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  

Look at that gold foil shine....
