The Greetery Day 4...



Welcome to Day 4 of the sneak peeks for The Greetery.  I am SO excited to be joining Betsy this week to help her kick of her new company with these amazing stamps and dies.  Check out all the details for today's peeks by heading over to The Greetery Blog!

My first card uses the new sets called Katie's Cuties: Panda stamps & dies, BotaniCuts Bamboo die....

The Greetery

I masked off the background and added in some blue sky by blending in some Broken China Distress Inks.  I did a little copic grass along the bottom.  Next, I colored up the bamboo dies using some Copies and a little blending.  Last, I stamped that adorable pandas and added it, along with the sentiment, to the card front.  

The Greetery

This next card was so fun to make.  I grabbed the Sentiment Suite: Thinking of You and the sentiment dies to create this card.....

The Greetery

First, I did a little ink blending a panel and then used the circle die to cut out several pieces.  I created a polka dot look and raised them up on foam tape.  Next, I stamped the sentiment on the coordinating die and added that to the card.  Last, I added in a few dew drops on the background.

I know the rest of the stops on this hop are going to have some show stoppers!  So here are the links to check them out....


This has been so much fun!  I am just thrilled for my sweet friend Betsy!  I can't wait to see what she has in store for the stamping world!!

I am so glad you stopped in today.  Hope you have a great day!
