Winter Wanderer Day 2...



Welcome to Day 2 of the reveal's at The Greetery.  Are you so excited for Release Day?  Friday is the day!  10am EDT on November 27th.  You'll have an extra day to finalize that wish list!  Join me today over on The Greetery's Instagram to see all the new products up close!  I am going live at 1am CST!


Today we are showcasing these new stamps and dies....



Simply Wonderful stamp set + die

Opposites Attract stamp set + die

Boho Banner die

Bigger Blooms stamp set + die

Macrame Borders & Tassels die

Macrame Diamonds die

Macrame Openwork base die


All of these stamps work together to create an amazing Boho vibe for cards of all occasions!  Let's get started!


The Greetery


This first card was created with 3 Greetery products....Boho Banner Set, Opposites Attract Stamp Set and (previously released) Sketchbook Roses.  I added the roses on the card base in black ink and then built the banner up on top.  I stamped the sentiment on the front and then added in the little feather dies to finish it off.  I just love the fringe die included in the die set!  Such a fun detail to finish off the card. 


The Greetery


My newest favorite stamp set....Bigger Blooms was used to create this next card....


The Greetery


First, I used the Macrame Openwork Base Die to create the card base on this card.  Then I used the Macrame Diamonds Die to build up the detail.  I stamped and die cut those gorgeous blooms and added them, along with a sentiment from Opposites Attract.

I played around with the Macrame Openwork Base Die, along with the Macrame Diamonds Die and create this fun little rainbow afghan....


LaurieWillison-MThe GreeteryacrameOpenworkBaseMacrameDiamondsDie-TheGreetery2


This was fun and super easy to make!  I used the Openwork die to create the background and then added in Diamonds die in rainbow colors to the front.  I popped up the thank you sentiment in black to finish off the card.  I LOVE LOVE that Opposites Attract Stamp set.  I can't wait to show you on today's IG live all the sentiments stamped out!


The Greetery


I cut these dies out to use on the card above but I liked the clean look a little better so I had all these extra pieces.  I love the graphic look that this die from Macrame Diamonds Die set makes!


The Greetery


They were super easy to line up and add with some adhesive spray.  I popped up the hello to finish off this super quick and easy card!


The Greetery

Thanks so much for coming by today!  I hope you will join me at 1pm CST over on The Greetery IG!

Winter Wanderer Day 1...

 




Welcome to Day 1 of the Winter Wanderer Reveal's for The Greetery's November Release!  For the next 2 days we will be sharing all the latest stamps and dies that will all be available on Friday, November 27th at 10am EST over at The Greetery Shop.  


Today we are sharing cards made with these new sets:








The Greetery


I had so much fun making this first card.  I used the Hoop die in a silver cardstock to create the base of this wreath....


The Greetery


Next, I stamped and die cut the elements from the Hoop Wreath Stamp set and arranged them around the silver hoop.  


The Greetery


The sentiments come from a new set you will learn more about tomorrow, called Opposites Attract.  


TG-HoopWreathThe Greetery-LWillison3


I added a score line at the top and bottom for another fun detail.  I just love the font in this new sentiment set!  So pretty!


The Greetery


I created another quick and simple card for today's reveal.  This card was made with the Catching Snowflakes die and Stamp Set.


The Greetery


To create this card, I used the circle negative from the hoop to create a mask for the card base.  I did some ink blending with a gorgeous navy ink.  I layered the Hoop Die, along with the Catching Snowflakes die on top.  I also added 2 sets of fringe dies from the Hoop and Fringe Die set.  


The Greetery


I stamped the sentiment along the top of the hoop and then finished the card off with a pearl in the center.  (Which I can now see to be crooked but lets just overlook that part for now!) :)


The Greetery


This is a gorgeous set with more elements you will see over on The Greetery's Blog!


The Greetery


I know the girls on the Design Team are going to have some show stoppers for you to see!  Here is a list of stops to make to check out today's projects!

Merry Christmas To You and Yours {Spellbinders}...

November's Glimmer Kit of the Month from Spellbinders is SO fun!  These plates add the prettiest foil detail to your cards in a design that is perfect for clean and simple cards.  This card was so easy to put together!


Spellbinders


First, I used the Merry ornament plate on white cardstock and cut it out with its coordinating die.  Next, I added the "Christmas to you and yours" to the red cardstock.  


Spellbinders


I layered them together and then simply added in a strip of green glitter cardstock to the top.  So easy to mass produce for the holidays!


Spellbinders


And look at that shine!


Spellbinders


There is still time left in November to grab your own Glimmer Kit of the Month!  Click HERE to shop!

Are you new to hot foiling?


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!

Good morning!  Welcome to another day of 25 Days of Christmas Tags!  Today we are using products from The Greetery!

I created a fun little Christmas tag using the set Christmas Care-A-Van.  I masked the bottom of the tag off and blended a little blue sky on the top.  I added the sentiment along the bottom and the add in the little van, garland and tree on top.  I finished the tag off with some ribbon and some silver bells!

Kaleidoscope Cross {Spellbinders}...

Good morning friends!  I have a Spellbinders die to share that is absolutely gorgeous! This die set is called Kaleidoscope Cross.  The intricate dies layer up to create the most beautifully detailed cross.  


Spellbinders


First, I used the Essential Glimmer Rectangles to create this fun dotted frame around the card front.  This glimmer plate set is definitely an essential for your glimmer stash.  I love the effect this frame has for an card.  Just a little pop of foiling goes along way!  


Spellbinders


Next, I die cut the pieces to the Kaleidoscope Cross and layered them together with liquid glue.  I used white and a pale yellow for the cross and I love the soft look it gives.  Last, I used the Faith Glimmer Sentiments to add in the perfect coordinating sentiment.  


Spellbinders



These dies are perfect for Easter cards or any faith based occasion!  Check them out by clicking HERE!
