Hi friends! I’m back with a second round of product reveals for The Greetery’s Sweet And Sunny Collection, which will be in shop tomorrow. If you missed yesterday’s hop, you can find it HERE. All new items will be in the shop tomorrow, June 29th, at 10am EST.
How beautiful is this Leaves All Around stencil and die duo?? I die-cut the frame first, then used the stencils to add color. To deepen the colors, I used colored pencils near the stems. For the background, I dry-brushed Dusty Concord Distress oxide ink (mixed with a little bit of water) onto watercolor paper. Once dry, I attached the panel to a card base, and added the frame with thin foam squares. I added two Honey Bees, and an Opposites Attract sentiment to finish the card.
My second card is definitely one of my favorite cards to make: a clean and simple background.
This is the new Jumbo Curiosity: Dragonfly die. I opted out of using the coordinating stencil to show what a tone-on-tone looks like. I picked Sea Glass card stock for my color, and added adhesive to the back of the card stock before die-cutting. This made adding the dragonflies to the card panel easy and mess-free. Once finished, I trimmed the edges, and used another Opposites Attract sentiment. I love this sentiment set, and use it quite often.
My last card features the new BotaniCuts Hollyhocks Die.
One thing I love to do is to show how well previously released products work with new products. And this card features items collected throughout these past few years! First, I made two Hollyhock stems, one purple and one orange. I also made a few BotaniCuts Lavender ,and BotaniCuts Pussy Willow. I added the bouquet to a Sprinkled With Kindness watering can, and made a background with Macrame Borders Die, and Macrame Diamond Die. I glued the Macrame to a 5 x 7 card base, and stamped a sentiment from Simple Things stamp set. I attached the bouquet with thin foam squares to finish the card.
New Products Used:
- Jumbo Curiosity: Dragonfly Die
- Leaves All Around stencil and die
- BotaniCuts Hollyhocks die
