Hey everyone! It's the first day of the November mini release countdown at The Greetery and I have a few projects to share using new products that are making their debut this month. I love this collection the Betsy put together for this mini release. The products are perfect for last minute holiday projects, but are images that you will find yourself reaching for throughout the year!

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on Friday, November 22nd, 10AM ET at The Greetery.

This first card uses the new Pine Blossom stamp set along with the new Inside & Out Berry Branch die. I stamped the large floral bouquet image from the Pine Blossom set onto Toffee/kraft cardstock. It's just so pretty and I thought of a dear friend right away that I knew I wanted to send it to.

There are multiple steps to stamp the completed image, but it's easier than it looks and Betsy includes a step by step guide.

I added some die cut leaves around my stamped images in white cardstock that I die cut using the new Inside & Out Berry Branch die. A few ink spatters and the "just a note" sentiment finishes things off and it was ready to pop into the mail.

Supplies:

  • STAMPS, DIES, & STENCILS: Pine Blossom stamp set (the Greetery), Inside & Out Berry Branch die (the Greetery)
  • INK: Jet Black Archival (Ranger), Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions), Olive (Taylored Expressions), Avocado (Taylored Expressions), Honey (Taylored Expressions), Pineapple (Taylored Expressions), Chocolate Truffle (Taylored Expressions)

For this next card, I used some of the single floral elements from the Pine Blossom stamp set. I stamped them on white cardstock and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

The background of the card is created with the new Berry Branch stencil. I mixed up a metallic embossing paste with gold glitter and applied it through the stencil onto olive cardstock. Doesn't it have a pretty vintage look? I masked off a part of the stencil to allow room for the stamped sentiment next to the flowers.

Supplies:

  • STAMPS, DIES, & STENCILS: Pine Blossom stamp set & dies (the Greetery), Berry Branch stencil (the Greetery)
  • INK: Jet Black Archival (Ranger), Cherry Pop (Taylored Expressions), Mulled Wine (Taylored Expressions), Olive (Taylored Expressions), Avocado (Taylored Expressions), Honey (Taylored Expressions), Chocolate Truffle (Taylored Expressions)
