CARDS

The stamp set used to make all of these cards is called My Funny Valentine.  

Scrapbook.com

SO super simple to just stamp the sentiments in black ink.  And they are funny!  

Scrapbook.com

I did use a heart stamp from Scrapbook.com's Pet Sympathy set, but you could use any heart stamp you have.

Scrapbook.com

I think these would make great guy cards!  I know my husband would laugh at this one....

Scrapbook.com

I just love this sentiment. The font is perfect!  I used my Misti to stamp the sentiments.  That helps with mass producing too.  These cards are so quick to stamp that you could make a bunch!

Scrapbook.com


I hope you have enjoyed my cards today!  I love Scrapbook.com and all they have to offer.  

Thanks so much for coming by today!

The Greetery Full Reveal Day 2...





Welcome to Day 2 of the The Greetery Reveals.  Today you get to see the rest of the release and then tomorrow!  It's only a day away!  The new stamps and dies will all be available at 9am CST over at The Greetery.  


Today's showcase includes these new products:

Sketchbook Roses stamps + die
Sentiment Suite Love stamps
Written in Ribbons stamps + dies
Let’s Have a word: Beautiful die
BotaniCuts Rose die

_____________________________________

The new die set called BotaniCuts Rose Die is so beautiful and very easy to put together....


The Greetery


To create this card, I stamped the Windowpane Plaid Background in a light gray ink on white cardstock and then used the largest Postal Frame Die cut.  I die cut the 2 flowers and the leaves and put them all together.  They are so easy to line up using Betsy's guide.  I sprayed them with Glitter Dust and then splattered a little while paint on them.  I love how that detail adds so much.  Next, I die cut the Inside and Out Berry Branch and used the outline to add a little detail behind the roses.  After attaching them to the card front, I added in the sentiment from Sentiment Suite: Love along with a couple clear drops. 


The Greetery    The Greetery


One of my absolute favorites from this release is Sketchbook Roses.  Check it out....


The Greetery


This new stamp set gives the allusion of watercoloring when in fact, its all stamps.  So those of us who are watercolor challenged.....this one is for us!  :)  I stamped the main image in black and white and then added in the color.  I die cut the card front with the Postal Frames Die and the stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner.  Last, I popped up the main panel on fun foam and added it to a green card base.  Super simple!


The Greetery      The Greetery


I grabbed 3 stamp sets to create this next card.  Sketchbook Roses, Pretty Postage and Written in Ribbons.....


The Greetery


I stamped the Sketchbook Rose image in a light gray ink and then die cut the panel with the large Postal Frame.  I stamped the Pretty Postage image along the top and then added in that gorgeous hello along the bottom.  Written in Ribbons is a gorgeous set and really easy to stamp!  I layered the card front onto a polk dot patterned paper card base to finish it off.

One last card, keeping it super simple.....


The Greetery


I just wanted to show another way to use the Let's Have a Word: Beautiful Die.  I stamped that big bloom again....yes I love that set SO much...and then kept it super simple but adding in the Hello Beautiful to the card front.  I did the same technique as yesterday's card and die cut the words in fun foam and then again in black card stock.  This time I added in a layer of glossy accents to make the words pop.  Quick and simple for sure!

Signed and Sealed Stamps and dies are so much fun!  I am loving this envelope image....


The Greetery


I stamped the envelope in black ink on a white card panel and then added in the sentiment from Sentiment Suite: Love, which you will see more of tomorrow.  I grabbed the envelope liner and stamped that in a red ink.  Next, I stamped and die cut the bloom from Sketchbook Roses.  You guys. I can't even with this one.  I generally don't do a lot of color or watercoloring, so this set?  Yeah.  Its for me.  Those colored images are a 2 step stamp that makes it look I did come coloring here.  LOVE!  Last, I added tucked in the blooms and added the panel to a white card base.  Super simple.  Super!

I needed another clean and simple card, of course, so I made this little monochromatic card...


The Greetery


I stamped the bloom from Sketchbook Roses on a pink card base.  I die cut the smaller of the 2 Postal Frames in white card stock and then stamped an image from Pretty Postmarks in light gray ink.  Next, I added in a heart image from the same set at the top.  I die cut the postmark from the Postal Frames set  and heat embossed the coordinating stamp and then popped it up around the heart image.  Last, I layered the white postal frame with fun foam and added it to the pink card base.

Do you guys follow Chip and Jo?  This last November a friend and I went to Waco to visit the Silos.  I love that place.  We ate at Magnolia Table which has the more gorgeous decor.  This next card is totally Magnolia Table inspired....


The Greetery


When I saw this amazing die, I knew it had to be kept super simple.  I used the new Window Pane Plaid Background stamp and stamped a deep yellow color on a white card base.  To make that sentiment pop, I die cut it in black fun foam and then again in black cardstock.  It was so easy to pop up on the card base.  And done!  Super simple and very Magnolia!


The Greetery      The Greetery


One last card today!  I had to use the envelope image from Signed and Sealed in a fun way!


The Greetery


To create this card I stamped the envelope image in black ink and then used the Crimped Frame die to make the front panel.    I added the crimped panel to another white panel and then added them both to the card front and then stamped the Hello sentiment along the bottom.  


The Greetery        The Greetery


The die set comes with a full enveloped die but it also comes with a single die to make the envelope open without cutting out the whole envelope.  I stamped another envelope in black ink on a teal card stock panel, die cut with the single die and then stamped thank you on this inside.  Last, I added a Starbucks card to the opening. The little die makes for the perfect gift card holder!


The Greetery



Alright, that is it for me today.  I have more to share tomorrow.  Check out all the links below because I am 100% certain these girls have more to see.....and we will be blown away!
