To create this card, I used the Extra Large Dot Stencil to create a quick and easy rainbow polka dot background!

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating die.  Using foam tape, I popped the sentiment up.  Super simple but I love the effect of the large Thank you!

The Greetery Gathered Blessings Day 2...

Hello friends!  I am back for day 2 of reveals for The Greetery!  So much awesomeness to see and it will all be available tomorrow!  Friday is release day and you can shop away!

I have 3 cards left to share PLUS a video with a bonus card!  Please bear with me as I am trying to make the videos a little better each time!  I think I talk too fast.  haha!

OK so lets get to the first card and my favorite....


The Greetery


The first card features Bontaicuts Toadstool Garden.  I love these dies.  LOVE!  They are so easy to cut and put together OR add in ink blending or any detail you can think of!  

I did a little masking around the front for a light gray background and then stamped in that gorgeous sentiment from Comforting Commands.  


The Greetery


Next, I die cut a big pile of all the parts and put them together.  I did some ink blending on the tops to give a more rounded effect.  I also went in on each of the debased dots and added some black marker.  I love that little detail added into the dies.


The Greetery


This next die set is called Botanicuts Mighty Oak....


The Greetery


To create this card, I used the new Square Dance die in white on a white card base.  I die cut a rectangle frame and added that on the card.


The Greetery


Next, I die cut Hello from the Slim Alphabet Dies in Kraft cardstock.  I grabbed the Mighty Oak dies and pieced them together and check out those adorable acorns!!  So cute!  I layered them in and out of the rectangle die and the popped up a couple of the leaves with foam dots. 


The Greetery


One last set today is called Mimosa Musings. Ok fine.  I love it all.  How can I really pick a favorite? 


The Greetery


This set is beautiful and stamps up so easily!  I created a full background with these images and then did some spritzing with the coordinating green ink, white ink and also some Glitter Dust.  I added in a shiplap base using the new Shiplap Builder dies.


The Greetery


I grabbed the Let's Have a Word:  Beautiful die and die cut it out using black fun foam.  Black fun foam makes the best sentiments!  I used liquid adhesive and added that to the card front to finish it off.


The Greetery


Here is a video and a bonus card just to get a quick peek of the Bontanicuts Toadstool Garden dies....





Remember tomorrow is the day!  Friday, August 28th at 10am EST the full release will be live and available to shop!  Also don't forget ab out this...


I will be over on the Greetery's IG live at 11am CST sharing all the new products!  Come hang out with me!

The Greetery Gathered Blessings Day 1....

 Hey friends!  Are you so excited?  The Greetery has a new release coming on Friday, August 28th and we are here to share some sneak peaks!!  

I am sharing several new products today, along with some old ones.  Here is today's first card....

The Greetery


First, I used Fir and Foilage No 1 Stencil to add in the tree in the background.  I blended in a little grass at the base of the cad and then scored a 1/2" frame around the front.  Next, I stamped up the little bug from Top Down Day and added in the new pumpkin additions called Top Down Autumn Day.   This little pumpkin bunch is just too cute!

This next card showcases 2 new products, The stamp set called All Blessings Flow, that adorable pitcher from Pitcher-esque and that background cover die called Square Dance Die and Stencil.  

First, I added in a tiny bit of brown ink bending on the Square Dance Die using the coordinating stencil.  I layered that Kraft panel on a white card base for some contrast.  Next, I stamped up the pitcher and the sprigs from All Blessings Flow.  After adding in some Copic detail to the sprigs, I arranged them into the pitcher and layered them onto the card base.  Last, I stamped and die cut that gorgeous sentiment and aded it to the card.  I covered up the handle on the pitcher hoping it would have more of a vase look.

I have a video below showing how I made this card.

Spellbinders August Clubs Blog Hop...






Hello crafty friends!  I am joining in over at Spellbinders for the August Clubs Blog Hop.  Today I have a card using both the Large Die of the Month, along with the Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the Month.  Keep scrolling to see today's card and check out the prize from Spellbinders.  You will also see a full list of stops at the end of this post. 

Here is today's clean and simple card....


Spellbinders


To create this card, I scored a 1/2" frame around a white card panel.  I added that adorable gold foiled sentiment using my Glimmer Hot Foil System.  If you are new to hot foiling, keep reading because I give the basics below.  


Spellbinders


Next, I grabbed some of the dies from the Large Die of the Month.  I die cut each tube in rainbow order and then die cut those cute little paintbrushes.  I lined up the paint tubes along the bottom of the scored frame and then added the brushes to the card front.  And done!


Spellbinders

_____________________________________



If you are new to foiling, here is a quick run down....

Spellbinders has a platform called Glimmer Hot Foil System.  This platform heats up metal plates called Glimmer Plates.  These glimmer plates come in ALL different types....sentiments, florals, backgrounds, graphic details etc....and add the most gorgeous foiling detail to your cards.  And the foils?  There are LOTS of different colors to chose from!


Here are some links to help point you in the right direction....






The Glimmer Hot Foil System works great with a Platinum 6 Die Cut machine from Spellbinders but also works with other die cut machines. You can click HERE to see a compatibility chart.  


So once the platform and your glimmer plate heat up, you add in the foil and the cardstock and run in thorough your die cut machine.  Once you pull off the foil negative, the magic happens!  That foil that is set on your cardstock is just gorgeous!
