The Greetery: Simple Things & Summer Sketches



Hi there! I am thrilled to be joining The Greetery this month to help showcase their amazing June Release! Today is the first day of the full reveal countdown!

Today we are showcasing several  new products, Simple Things Stamps and dies and Summer Sketches Stamps and dies.  Be sure and check out all of Betsy's 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, June 21 at 10am ET at The Greetery.



This is such a pretty stamp set! I stamped the eucalyptus in two shades of blue, cut them out with the coordinating dies and layered them onto the die cut mat. 



I then stamped the sentiment included in the Simple Things stamp set in the middle, and layered this onto a card covered with patterned paper to match.

***


For this card, I used the Summer Sketches stamp set and dies. I created the background by lightly stamping some of the images from the set onto Bristol Board card stock, then misting it with water and blotting. It made a really nice soft background. I also sprinkled it with a bit of blue ink mixed with water. 



I then added the die cut stamped images and sentiment with foam tape. 

***



This stamp set also comes with just the outline images, so I had to do one more card with that so I could do some loose watercoloring. This set lends it self so well to this technique. I stamped the images with waterproof black ink onto watercolor paper and then just had fun with my Peerless watercolors. 



The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder, cut out with the Sentiment Suite 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!
