The Greetery: Gathered Blessings Collection Day 2

  Hello friends!

Welcome to the second day of the full reveals for the newest collection coming to The Greetery! As I said yesterday, this collection is called Gathered Blessings and it is just gorgeous! 

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


My first card uses the beautiful Mimosa Musings stamp set and coordinating dies. We have a huge Mimosa tree up at the top of our driveway and I just love it! When it blooms it smells so wonderful and I love the color of the blooms. For the background of my card, I just lightly swished some watered down Distress ink along the top and bottom right edge with a large brush. I then speckled it with a  bit more of the same color. 



I stamped the mimosas and cut them out with the coordinating dies. They were adhered to the card with foam tape. The sentiment is included in the set and I stamped it with two shades of bright pink.

***


My next card uses the Blessed Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies. I first blended some purple ink onto my cardstock along the center and speckled with the same color ink. 


I first stamped and cut out the sentiment and adhered it to the center of my card at an angle. I stamped all of the images in oranges and purples, cut them out with the coordinating dies and added them around the sentiment. 

***


My last card is a little different style than I usually do. I was channeling my inner Tim Holtz when I made this one ;) I don't usually do this type of card, but sometimes when no one is watching... I do...and I enjoy it! I had a lot of fun with this one. I used the new Botanicuts:Toadstool Garden, Botanicuts: Mighty Oak and then the previously released Botanicuts: Sunflower. Because it just needed a flower.




I used Distress Oxide inks to color everything and I speckled them with water and then with Vintage Photo Oxide ink. The background was done pretty much the same way except that I started with the aqua colored cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Blessed Blooms stamp set. I did some ink smooshing to get it vintage looking and then cut the words apart. 

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today!  The beautiful Gathered Blessings Collection will be available at The Greetery tomorrow Friday August 28th at 10 EDT.

  2. Oh Kay, these cards are just beautiful. How neat that you have a mimosa tree and can now create cards with stamps similar to it? So cool. The colors you have chosen for each of these cards brings out the beauty of fall. Especially that last one. Nope, not your usual style but it looks amazing. Definitely pull out your inner Tim Holtz again sometime. Wonderful, wonderful work! Hugs!

  84. I'm with you: I'm definitely a more clean and simple cardmaker, but occasionally, I'll just go mixed media mad. Though I have to say, that your experiment turned out much better than mine do! I think my favorite is the second one, which surprises me because orange and purple are not usually my favorite combo, but this one is gorgeous.
