The Greetery: Gathered Blessings Collection Day 1

 Hello friends!

Welcome to the first day of the full reveals for the newest collection coming to The Greetery! This collection is called Gathered Blessings and it is all about fall! I can't wait to share all of my projects with you! I love fall and I have been waiting for this! 

All of the products that I will be using today and tomorrow will be available at The Greetery this Friday August 28th at 10 EDT. 



So my first card here using the beautiful newAll Blessings Flow stamp set, coordinating dies, and the Square Dance Stencil set. For the background I used Bristol Cardstock and stenciled with the Square Dance Stencil set using Distress inks. I sprinkled water on it and blotted it dry. 



I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and cut that out with the Crimpred Frame die and added it to the card with foam tape. I stamped all of the images using the MISTI stamping tool, cut them out with the coordinating dies and added them to the card with foam tape as well. I thought my card needed just a pop of color so I added a purple flower from the Fleur Impressions stamp set. 



My next card uses the lovely Pitcher-esque stamp set and coordinating dies along with Bittersweet Bouquet. The flowers in front are from the Destination stamp set and the wheat stalks are from the Budding Beauties: Autumn stamp set. The beautiful background you see here is the new Shiplap die set and it is so amazing! It makes the most beautiful wooden plank background! I cut each of them out with white cardstock and used a bit of Iced Spruced Distress Oxide ink around the edges and I loved the way it turned out! 



I stamped the pitcher in many many different colors but ended up liking the red one best for this card. I can't wait to use all the others on different projects though. I did speckle a little bit of the red ink and then some white ink also to give it some texture.  I mounted it to my shiplap background with foam tape and added all of the beautiful flowers and greenery behind it with foam tape as well. The sentiment is from the Bittersweet Bouquet stamp set.



And last but certainly not least is a cute little add on stamp and die set that goes with the Top Down Day set called Top Down Autumn Day. So now you can fill the back of your little car with pumpkins! So cute! For the background, I made myself a stencil with the Silver Lining Die and blended over it to make the clouds in the sky. I lightly stamped the trees from the Fir & Foliage stamp set in the horizon. I then cut out a border with the Silver Lining die and colored it with Distress Oxide inks and added that to the bottom of my card. I then created a little dirt road with more distress ink blending. 


I stamped all of the pieces and parts to the car and the pumpkins, cut them out with the coordinating die, glued them together, then added them to my fall scene with foam tape. The sentiment is from the Top Down Autumn Day set and I stamped it in dark brown.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today! I'll be back tomorrow with more inspiration for the new Gathered Blessings Collection!
