Hey everyone! It's the second day of the October release countdown at The Greetery and I have a few projects to share using new products that are making their debut this month.

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on Friday, October 4th, 10AM ET at The Greetery.

How cute is this little van??? Betsy has always been the best at designing the cutest 3D paper things to assemble. I personally think this little van is one of my favorites that she has done! I added the color on the sides with the coordinating stencil. The whole van is die cut from white cardstock and I added color to the pieces with a blender brush and inks.

The little van is designed to open up in the back so you can fill it with a treat or small gift if you want! To accessorize the van, I added the "Merry Christmas" banner to the sides from the Christmas Eve collection. I also added a small tree to the top of the van, tying it up with some burlap twine.

Supplies:

  • STAMPS, DIES, & STENCILS: Happy Hippie Van dies (The Greetery), Happy Hippie Van Details stencil (The Greetery), Christmas Eve stamp set & die (The Greetery)
  • INK: Versamark (Tsukineko), Olive (Taylored Expressions), Mushroom (Taylored Expressions), Poppy Seed (Tailored Expressions)
  • PAPER: Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions), Watermelon (Taylored Expressions)
  • OTHER: white embossing powder (Taylored Expressions), blender brushes (Taylored Expressions), burlap twine (Taylored Expressions), silver watercolors (Finetec), craft tree, wooden star, glitter, MISTI

After I finished the 3D van, I knew I needed to create some matching notecards using the Christmas Care-a-van stamp set and coordinating dies. I stamped the van to match my 3D creation and added it to an A1 Toffee card base that I stenciled with the Frosty Flakes stencil using Sugar Cube ink.

The best part about the new Christmas Care-A-Van stamp set:

When you purchase the Christmas Care-A-Van set, $3 will go towards to putting together shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child - a charity that is near and dear to Betsy and a project that her family enjoys doing together!

I just love that Betsy is doing this at The Greetery and carrying on a tradition that her family has had for many years!
