The Greetery - Garden Variety Day 2...

 Good morning!  I want to start off by telling you about my comment situation.  First off, my comments are moderated because I get a ton of spam.  The kind of spam that tells me about cholesterol medication, among others, and just weird bot comments so I filter those out.  If you leave a comment and don't see it, thats ok!  I see it and I will get it posted for you.  The other issue is weather or not you need a google account.  I have my comments set to "anyone" so technically you should be able to leave a comment with any type of login, but Blogger is a pain.  If you can't leave a comment and are not sure if you your name is posting along with you comment, please add your name and email address to the end of your comment. This way we can see who you are if your comment gets chosen as a winner!  I am sorry for the annoyance.  I have no idea why it doesn't work like it should.  I have googled and switched settings around and tried all the things but Blogger is a pain.  If you have any suggestions at this point, send me an email! :)

 __________________________________


SO, lets get on to day 2 of this amazing Greetery Garden Variety release!!  Remember that die I peaked yesterday?  Here it is! Garden Gear: Tools Die along with the In Spades Stamp and Stencil Set.  I mean come on...how cute is this?  


The Greetery


I kept it super simple with lots of white space but just adding in the stencil and stamp details on a white die cut.  I found some super cute wood grain paper for the handles.  I die cut the tools out of fun foam too, and then added that to the back of each tool die.  That makes the perfect dimensional.  I layered them on a Crimped Frame card front and then added the new Scripty Hello Die.  I love how intricate the die cut is!  


The next card uses the Seed Catalog Background Stamp, Its a Wrap Posy Pocket Die and the Botanicuts: Lavender Die.  I also added a big bold sentiment from Opposites Attract.  


The Greetery


This last card reaches outside of my white space comfort zone.  I used green cardstock with the Seed Catalog Background Stamp and paired it with the new Garden Gear: Gloves Die and Garden Gear: Gloves Print Stencil.  I added in the Scripty Hello Die to finish off this card!


The Greetery


Everything you see today and tomorrow will be available on Thursday, May 26th at 10am Eastern time.  You can click HERE to see it all!
