Welcome to the third day of product reveals for The Greetery’s gorgeous Let’s Make Memories Holiday Collection. Betsy has shared her love for Christmas and stationary today, bringing them together in one stamp set named With Love At Christmas. I incorporated this stamp set with previously released products on two cards I am sharing today.
My grandmother always had a beautiful Christmas poinsettia arrangement on her dining room table every Christmas. That is what inspired me to make this bouquet. I used the smaller floral images in the With Love At Christmas stamp set to build my arrangement, adding some flare with mermaid green foliage. I love that each small image in this stamp set has a die in the coordinating die set. I picked the large pot from the Macra-Made For You Die Set to hold the arrangement.
I used the middle size Crimped Frame die to die-cut white card stock, and added a soft blend of light gray ink over a mask to ground the pot. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment with maroon embossing powder before mounting the panel onto chili powder card stock. I used the same gray ink to blend over the Knit Wits stencil for the background, then assembled the card.
For my second card, I added a sentiment from the new set in the Sentiment Suite: Christmas.
When the Budding Beauties stamp set debuted in August, I knew I would be using it for Christmas cards also. I made a card for today similar to a fall card I made with the same set, this time using my favorite colors for a Christmas wreath: blue and sage. I started this card by making a blue watercolor background, then die-cut the paper with the large Crimped Frame rectangle. I stamped the Just Mason Around jar with gray inks, and added a red stamped string bow. I stamped the Sending Holiday Cheer sentiment from Sentiment Suite: Christmas. I love this Sentiment Suite Series. The coordinating dies match every stamp set in the series, and each die has character. I used the circle tag die to cut this sentiment out, and attached it to the string.
I stamped the long stem from Simple Things stamp set with Chocolate Truffle ink onto the watercolor paper. I added the stamped stems and jar with foam squares, and added lines of Ranger Multi Media Matte to the stems. I poured Distress Clear Rock Candy Glitter (a product I use on the majority of my Christmas cards, I just love the texture and sparkle!) over the adhesive, and let it dry. I attached the panel to a card base with foam adhesive, and added a few stamped and die-cut images from With Love At Christmas stamp set. Notice more Rock Candy Glitter?? I can’t help myself!
To go with this stamp set, Betsy has introduced the Flappable Stencil Collection. These stencils will allow you to coordinate the flaps on a 5.5 Bar envelope.
There’s three stencils in this set, making it easy for you to coordinate your envelopes with all of the stamps and dies in the Holiday Collection.
