Sending Hugs {The Greetery}...




Hey friends!  Stopping in with another Greetery project today.  I just can't stop blending these amazing Fresh Floral backgrounds.  They are SO easy to create!  By now you have all probably put in your order and are waiting patiently for them to arrive, so thought I would stop in and share another project. 


The Greetery


This background consists of one large background stamp....in green.  The pink flowers are stenciled in, the yellow buds are stenciled in and then the blue flowers and all the fine details are stamped in.  It does sound like a few steps....but take it from me....the clean and simple fan....the easy stamp it and be done stamper....this is so fun AND so easy!


The Greetery


Next, I used the Alpha Bud Die Collection and die cut the letters in black fun foam.  I love this look!  So easy to attach to your card and you don't have to worry about attaching another layer of card stock.  I grabbed the Sentiment Builder Die set....which is not available just yet due to some fun Covid-19 issues....Thank you Rona.  (insert thumbs down emoji). But stay tuned to The Greetery Blog for updates on when the dies will be here and ready to purchase.


The Greetery


Head on over to my instagram @laurie_willison to see a quick video on how I blended up this background.  I can't wait to start seeing all of your backgrounds!  You guys are going to love this set!

Thanks for coming by today!  Hope you have a great weekend!

The Greetery Day 3 Reveal...



I am so excited to be here today with the rest of the Inspiration Team, to share one last day of sneak peeks before the Fresh Air Collection goes lives over at the Greetery.  Release time is tomorrow,  Friday, March 27th at 10am EST.  Yay!  And don't forget to join me today over on Instagram at The Greetery.  I will be there live at 11am CST to share all the latest stamps and dies with you!



_____________________________________


This first card showcases the new Fresh Air Stamps and Dies.  There is also a coordinating Fresh Air: Window Frame Die and a Brick Layer Die. 

The Greetery


To create this card, I used my Press n Seal trick that I shared years ago.  I cut the bricks out and wanted them to stand off the card instead of using them as a cut out.  I die cut them and then added the stamped shadow.  Then using Press n Seal, I picked them up in groups and added them to the card front to make a brick wall.  I added some Glitter Dust Spray to each section of brick for a little sparkle, and then added little bits of white paint splatter.


The Greetery


I stamped and die cut the window, curtain and flower pot and added it all to the card front.  I heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom of the card to finish it off.  These new products are amazing!  They add so much detail to your cards!


The Greetery


This last card uses one of the stems from Budding Beauties...


The Greetery


I used the Postal Frames Die to emboss the frame on this white card base.  I added the jar from Just Mason Around and tucked that new stem down behind it.  


The Greetery


I finished the card off with a sentiment from Sentiment Suite: Thank You on a strip of light gray card stock.


The Greetery

**Please note that some of the dies from this release will be delayed. Stay tuned to The Greetery blog for more details and updates!



Stay tuned for more reveals and my Instagram Live over at The Greetery on Thursday!

The Greetery Day 2 Reveal...



Good morning!  I am so excited to see you back here today.  Thanks for hanging out with me for a bit.  I am having SO much sharing all the happy from The Greetery today.  Today is our 2nd day of reveals....then one more day tomorrow!  Thursday is my IG Live over at The Greetery's insta and then Friday is release day!  Yay!

Thursday, March 26th at 11am CST!

Let's talk about today's sneak peeks!

To get started, my first project showcases the new Print Shop Fresh Floral Stamp + Stencils...


The Greetery


When I saw this stamp and stencils, I knew it was going to be amazing.  The possibilities are endless with color combos and designs.  To get this look, I stamped the large greenery image with green ink.  Next, I stenciled in the first layer of blooms....the light pink ink.  Then I stenciled in the 2nd layer of blooms....the red ink.  The yellow buds are the 3rd stencil.  So so easy to line up and create this look. 


The Greetery


Next, I stamped in the blue flowers and the detail lines on the big blooms.  You could totally stop there.  It is amazing all by itself.  But I didn't.  Next, I blended in some yellow ink all round the white space.  Then I did a little spritz with Glitter Dust spray.  THEN I added in some white ink splatter.  I texted Betsy at this point and told her how fabulous this whole set really is!  To finish off the card, I cut the littlest sliver off the side....because how could I waste any of that amazing background, right?! I popped it up on a card base lined with black and white striped patterned paper.  And last, I added the Hello from the new Slim Alpha Dies.  Guess what is SO amazing about this sentiment?  It's black fun foam.  And that is it!  I layered a piece of double sided adhesive on the back of the black fun foam.  Then I cut the entire alphabet out....because now I have these homemade Thickers to save for another project.  (Remember Thickers?  LOVED those!)  Betsy has an Alpha Alignment Tool, also new for this release, and it will help you line up those letters like a dream!


The Greetery


The new Fresh Floral line also has a coordinating red rubber background stamp....called Fresh Floral!  


The Greetery


I stamped it with white ink onto this Kraft cardstock.  I just love the detail in the stamp.  Next, I cut the panel out with the Crimped Frame die and also did a coordinating cut out of vellum.  


The Greetery


I heat embossed the sentiment on the front of the vellum using white embossing powder and attached it to the Kraft panel.  Next, I stamped and die cut all the blooms from the Print Shop: Fresh Floral set.  I added in some details with Copic markers to the leaves and then added them to the vellum panel.  I attached the entire card front to a white card base to finish it off!


The Greetery


**Please note that some of the dies from this release will be delayed. Stay tuned to The Greetery blog for more details and updates!



Stay tuned for more reveals and my Instagram Live over at The Greetery on Thursday!

TODAY'S PROJECTS


Today we are sharing the new Top Down Day Stamps and Dies, Silver Linings Die and Painterly Stripes Background Stamp.


The Greetery


You guys!  I just love this new set called Top Down Day.  This car is SO cute and so fun to stamp.  I stamped it up and added that cute little gal along with some balloons.  The clouds you see in the background are called Silver Linings.  


The Greetery


I added 2 layers to the card front stamped in the Painterly Stripes Background Stamp.  I love those fun brushstroke stamps.  I can see using this for all different kinds of backgrounds and projects. 


The Greetery


I had to add in one clean and simple card with this adorable card.....


The Greetery


I stamped the card in different colors of mint and added some flowers to the back of the car.  


The Greetery


The set has lots of different sentiments in the most adorable font.  I loved this simple Hello for this quick card.

Stay tuned for more reveals and my Instagram Live over at The Greetery on Thursday!
