The Greetery: Fresh Air Collection Day 3



Hi there! Welcome to Day 3  of the countdown for the March Release from The Greetery! I have some more fun projects to share with you that I created with the beautiful new Fresh Air Collection!

Today we are showcasing: 
  • Fresh Air stamps + die
  • Fresh Air: Window Frame die
  • Brick Layer die
  • Budding Beauties Spring stamps + die

New Products will be in the shop on Friday, March 27 @ 10am EST.





This card was created with the new Fresh Air stamp set and coordinating dies. This set is so pretty and so very unique! I just love it! I used the brick stamp to create a soft background wall for my window. For the inside of the window I blended some distress ink.  



I added the little green plant from the Pot-Pourri stamp set and coordinating dies. The sentiment is included in the Fresh Air stamp set. For the curtains, I stamped the Fresh Floral Background stamp onto them to make it look like there was a pattern on the fabric. 

***



This one is a little bit different I think, but I really liked how it turned out. I used the brick stamp from the Fresh Air stamp set to create a background wall for my flowers. I also sprinkled some pink ink around. I used the Painterly Stripes Background stamp for the strip along the bottom, and the sentiment is from the Fresh Air stamp set.




All of the flowers are from the beautiful new Budding Beauties stamp set except for the tiny ones tucked in front, those are from the Printshop Fresh Floral stamp set. 

***


I had to make one more card using the Budding Beauties stamp set. I paired it up with the envelope from the Signed & Sealed stamp set to create a pretty little pocket full of spring flowers!


The soft background you see is the Fresh Floral Background stamp. I just stamped it partially in a soft blue. The sentiment is from the Fresh Air Stamp set.  The flowers are from the Budding Beauties stamp set, Fresh Air stamp set and Printshop Fresh Florals. 



I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects with these beautiful new products! The will all be available tomorrow at The Greetery @ 10am EST

The Greetery: Fresh Air Collection Day 2




Hi there! Welcome to Day 2  of the countdown for the March Release from The Greetery! I have some more fun projects to share with you that I created with the beautiful new Fresh Air Collection!

Today we are showcasing: 
  • Print Shop: Fresh Floral stamp + stencil & die
  • Fresh Floral Background rubber stamp
  • Slim Alphabet die
  • Alphabuds: Slim stamp set & matching dies collection
  • Sentiment Starters die
  • Alpha Alignment guide

New Products will be in the shop on Friday, March 27 @ 10am EST.


Okay would you look at this card! This stamp and stencil duo is absolutely amazing and very easy to use! It makes the most stunning backgrounds!  I used the Print Shop Fresh Floral stencils and stenciled the pink flowers and the tiny purple ones. Then I stamped the greenery with the Print Shop Fresh Floral stamp, and added the  yellow flowers and details with the smaller stamps in the set. I was absolutely amazed with this when I finished it! I had to stamp several in all different color combinations!


When I was finished with the stamping and stenciling, I splattered a tiny bit of the pink ink around the large pink flowers. The sentiment is from the Sketchbook Roses stamp set.

***


For this one, I used the Painterly Stripes background stamp that we showed yesterday. This time, I stamped it once, then turned my cardstock around so that the stripes would created a plaid look. For the white background, I used the  Crimped Frame dies. All of the flowers are from the new Printshop Fresh Floral set.


The Sending die cut is from the new Sentiment Starters dies and the Lots of Love sentiment is from the Sign & Sealed with a Kiss stamp set. 

***


My last card today uses the new Alpha Buds Slim stamp set and dies, the Slim Alpha dies and the Fresh Floral Background stamp. I stamped the Fresh Floral Background stamp with green ink onto light green cardstock and cut this out with the Nordic Frame dies. I added this to my card with foam tape. I cut a white panel out with the smaller die from the Nordic Frame dies and added that to the green panel with foam tape also.



I stamped the little flowers from the Alpha Buds Slim stamp set and cut those out with the matching dies. I then cut the letters out with the Slim Alpha dies and adhered those over top with liquid adhesive. I then added the letters to my card with foam tape.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects with these beautiful new products! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share!

The Greetery: Fresh Air Collection Day 1



Hi there! Today is the first day of the countdown for the March Release from The Greetery! The Fresh Air Collection is filled with sweet images, fresh florals, pretty patterns and a new take on alphas.

Today we are showcasing: Top Down Day stamp set and dies, Painterly Stripes background stamp and Silver Lining Die.

New Products will be in the shop on Friday, March 27 @ 10am EST.


Oh my goodness this is the cutest stamp set ever! I had so much fun making this card! For the background, I blended distress ink for the sky, then I used the Fir & Foliage No.2 stamp set to stamp the trees. I did the thing where you stamp it one time and then stamp it again without reinking your stamp to get the lighter impression. It has a name, but I can't remember what it's called :)  Then I made a little road for my card with some dark gray cardstock and added a thin strip of white card stock down the middle. 


I stamped all of the fun images , glued them together with liquid adhesive and added the car to my card with foam tape. The sentiment is included in the stamp set as well and has a matching die also. I love that!

***


So for this one, I used the new Painterly Stripes background stamp. I stamped it once, moved my cardstock over just a tiny bit and stamped it again without reinking the stamp. This made a dark and a light stripe.  It's hard to see, but I used the Silver Lining Die as a stencil and blended some blue ink onto my small white panel for some clouds. I mounted this on a blue frame that I cut out with the Postal Frames dies.


Again, I had so much fun stamping and putting together all the cute pieces of this image. I added the flowers and balloons both to my car this time :)

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects with these beautiful new products! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share!

Pinkfresh Studio: Folk Dance, Leafy Decor and Foilage Frame



Hi there! I have a couple of cards up on the Pinkfresh blog and I wanted to share them here as well. Today I'm using the Folk Dance Die, Leafy Decor Stamp set, Leafy Decor Die,  Foliage Frame Die Diagonal Stitched Square Dies and the Phrase Builder: You die set.


For my first card, I cut out the Foliage Frame die from white card stock and adhered that to a light blue card stock panel. I then cut out a frame using the Diagonal Stitched Square Dies.  I used the middle sized die and taped the smaller die inside that to cut out the frame opening.  I added this to the Foliage Frame panel with foam tape.


 I stamped the beautiful image from the Leafy Decor stamp set and colored it with Copic markers. I cut it out with the Leafy Decor die and added it to the frame with foam tape. The sentiment is also from the Leafy Decor stamp set and it is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

***


My next card uses the Folk Dance Die. I cut strips of colored card stock and added those to an A2 size white card base, then I cut the Folk Dance die out of white card stock and adhered that over top with liquid adhesive.


I cut the word Awesome, from the Phrase Builder: You die set out of white card stock and adhered it to the purple die backing piece. I added this to my card with foam tape. The small sentiment underneath is from the Leafy Decor stamp set and it is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today!

Gina K Designs: Kindness Wreath


Hello there! I had the pleasure of working with one of the brand new stamp sets from Gina K Designs called Kindness Wreath. I love to color, and I just got a brand new set of Polychromos colored pencils for Christmas, so I was super excited to color this beautiful floral design!


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Strathmore Vellum Bristol Board, then colored with my Polychromos colored pencils. 



After I finished the coloring, I stamped the sentiment in the center of the design and then speckled some Vintage Photo Distress ink around and some white acrylic ink. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Kay :)

The Greetery: Hello Beautiful




Hi there! I have a card up on The Greetery Blog today for the TGIF feature and I wanted to share it here on my blog as well.  

As winter draws to an end here, my thoughts have totally turned towards warmer days and spring flowers, and so I was inspired to bring out some pretty floral stamps to play with. I love the Fleur Impressions stamp set from The Greetery and had not had a chance to use that set yet, so was exited to play with it for this card. I also paired it up with a cute little bird from The Robin & Wren set, and created a frame to set it all off with the Nordic Frames dies.



For the background, I blended some purple and blue distress inks, then splattered some of those same colors along with some white acrylic paint.  



To create the frame, I used the two smaller size frames from the Nordic Frame dies and layered the smaller one inside the larger of the two and cut them out together. I adhered this to my blended panel with foam tape. I stamped all of the pretty flowers from the Fleur Impressions stamp set, and little bird  from the Robin & Wren stamp set, in different shades of purples and blues. I then cut them out with the coordinating dies, and added them around the frame with foam tape. 



For the sentiment, I used the Hello from the Signed and Sealed Stamp set, and Beautiful from the Sketchbook Roses stamp set. I cut these out with the coordinating dies and added them along the frame with foam tape.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today and I hope it inspires you to do some spring crafting!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Kay :)
