The Greetery: July Mini Release



Hi there! I hope you are all enjoying your summer!
I'm excited to share a few cards with you today featuring some really fun and unique dies that are a mini release this month from The Greetery! I had so much fun with these dies! I am really loving the layered flower dies! So fun to try out different color combinations with them!

These items are all available for sale now at The Greetery!


So my first card using the new BotaniCuts Sunflower dies. They are SO much fun! I cut them out in so many different color combinations. I decided to use the pink, orange and yellow ones, but be sure you will see more cards with these dies soon! I also used the new Simple Things die that coordinates with the sentiment from the Simple Things stamp set. I love dies that cut out my sentiments! 



I also used another sentiment from the Simple Things stamp set, and cut that out with the Sentiment Suite dies. I used the new Crimped Frame dies to cut out a white layered background and blended just a bit of Distress ink  into the center.

***


So the first card I used just plain colored card stock to cut out the sunflowers. I loved those, but I knew they would be just beautiful cut out of watercolor paper with distress inks, so that is what I've done here. I cut them all out of watercolor paper first then blended distress ink onto each piece individually. I then splatters them with more of the same color ink and then some white ink lastly.




For the background, I blended some distress ink onto a panel cut out with the new Crimpled Frame dies and layered everything with foam tape. The sentiment on this one is from the Sentiment Suites: Birthday stamp set.

***


And my last card is made with the new Macra-Made Fillers dies along with the Macra-Made For You dies. The sentiment is from the Sentiment Suites: Thinking of You stamp set. For the background on this card, I again used the new Crimped Frame dies and blended distress ink onto the panel. The pots and the plants were cut out of watercolor paper, and blended with distress ink, splattered with more ink and white ink as well. Everything was mounted with foam tape.



Products used in my cards:

BotaniCuts Sunflower
Crimped Frame Die
Macra-Made Fillers Die
Macra-Made For You Die
