The Greetery: Holiday Release Day 2



Hi there! Today is the second day of the countdown for the October Holiday release from The Greetery! And as if yesterday wasn't enough, just wait to see what fun things we have in store for you today! 

Today we are showcasing Christmas Care-A-Van stamps & dies, Happy Hippie Van die, Happy Hippie Van Details die and Happy Hippie Van Details Stencil.




I just absolutely love the way this card turned out! That little van is so adorable. I had to stamp about 25 of them in different colors, but decided I liked the lime green one the best :) I added some trees from the Fir & Foliage stamp set too. 




I watercolored the background with Distress inks and the little snowflakes are actually dots of acrylic paint. I did them all individually by hand. I couldn't risk splattering it at this point and possibly getting a big giant blob somewhere :)



Oh and how cute is this little van! It was so fun to make. Very easy too! It's really fun to change out the different background papers to make them very different looking, or use the Hippy Van Stencils too!


I used some stamps from the Christmas Care-A-Van Stamp set to decorate the sides of my little vans. And I used the Sentiment Suites dies and a sentiment from the Christmas Care-A-Van set to make the little tag on top.


This one I did with some pink patterned paper. It could easily be for a birthday favor or even Valentines day!


I again added the little tag on top with some baker's twine.


And now you can see how cute they are from the back! They open up and you can fill them up with all kinds of goodies! Just so fun!

Supplies used for my projects:

Christmas Care-A-Van stamps & dies
Happy Hippie Van die
Happy Hippie Van Details die

  1. Oh my gosh, those vans are the best! So cute and so fun for the Christma holiday or any holiday, like you said. They are fabulous. The card is, too. Shades of Christmas Vacation (but in a good way). What a beautiful scenic route they are on. Thank you SO much for sharing this fun release, Kay!
