The Greetery: Katie's Cuties Panda and BotaniCuts Bamboo



Hi there! I'm back with some more cards to share with you that I created with the new products coming to The Greetery! If you missed my post yesterday or are just now hearing about The Greetery, it is a brand new company started by  my friend Betsy Veldman who is an amazingly  talented designer. I could not be more thrilled to be helping promote and launch her new store and designs! 

Today we are showcasing several of her new products, Katie's Cuties: Panda stamps & dies and  BotaniCuts Bamboo die. Be sure and check out all of her beautiful samples and more information on The Greetery Blog!

 And connect on social media: @the_greetery on Instagram, and The Greetery on Facebook. 

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on Friday, April 26th, 10AM ET at The Greetery.



For my first card, I created the background with Peerless watercolors. I just swiped my brush full of colors lightly across the paper and then speckled with some of the same color. 



The cute little panda and other images were all colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.




For this card, I used Festive Berries Distress ink for the background, blended, then speckled with water. I used Peeled paint and Crushed Olive distress inks on the BotaniCuts Bamboo die cuts. I layered a cut out circle panel over that before adding more bamboo leaves and the sweet little panda.


The super cute little panda guy there was colored with Copic Markers, cut out with the coordinating dies and added with foam tape. 


I hope you have enjoyed seeing what Betsy has coming so far! Don't forget to check The Greetery Blog for more sneak peeks from Betsy! 

I am just one of the guest joining The Greetery today! Be sure and check out what the other talented designers have created!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Kay :)
