The Greetery Sweet & Sunny - Day 2

Hello friends!  Today is day 2 of the Greetery Release countdown.   Tomorrow is release day!  Today though....come hang out with me over on the Greetery's Instagram at 11am and I will show you all the new stamps and dies.  Stop in and say hi!


Today we have several more new products to share.  This first card showcases all 3 Honey bees from yesterday but today's new project is the Leaves All Around Stencil and die.  


The Greetery


I also added the sentiment in from the Buzz Worthy Sentiments and Die Set.  I love how fun those big sentiments are to pop up on the card front.  


The Greetery


Another new die set available tomorrow is called Jumbo Curiosity: Butterfly Die and Stencil Set. These new dies are SO much fun.  The die cuts out the butterfly and the stencil adds in the color and details.  In today's case, I actually cut 2 butterflies I half and gave it a new look.  The other fun thing is that I die cut the butterfly out of black card stock and then used Picket Fences Golden Rose Paper Glaze to give the butterfly the monarch look.  I used a white gel pen to add in the dots.  I added it to the Jumbo Jar Die after I added in the Blooming Branch.  I layered it on the jar and the card base so it has that layered look.  I finished the card off with a heat embossed sentiment strip and a silver jar lid.


The Greetery


Last card for this week's release....there is a new Botanicut in town!  The Hollyhocks!  These dies are just beautiful and so easy to layer up.  I die cut them all out of water color paper and then added watercolor as I went along.  Super easy and quick to color!


The Greetery


I layered them on a Postal Frame Die, also die cut from water color paper, after blending a sky and some grass in the background.  To finish off the card, I used the Opposites Attract Hot Foil Sentiments and Opposites Attract Dies on the bottom of the card.  Look at that shine!


The Greetery
