Hi, everyone! Welcome to the first product reveal day for the May release at The Greetery! We are celebrating The Greetery's first birthday and what better than with new birthday themed products, right? Today, I have products to share using the new Balloon Bouquet stamps & dies, the new Birthday Blooms stamps & dies, and the new Think Happy Stamp & Cut Combo set.

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on Friday, May 29th, 10AM ET at The Greetery.


Let's start off with this pretty birthday balloon card that I created with the Balloon Bouquet stamp set. The large balloon in the set has an area to stamp the floral elements and I love how they are perfect for a garden party! I stamped three balloons across my card front using a green/blue ink. My flowers are stamped in a light pink and then details with a darker pink and then two shades of green inks for the leaves. I stamped the 'celebrate' sentiment on the center balloon using black ink.


I die cut the cardstock with the Nordic Frames die and popped it up with foam squares on a kraft card base. For a bit of sparkle, I scattered white rhinestones across the balloons. I want to stamp up more of these balloons with different color combinations! How pretty would that be bundled up in a card set?



This next card is created with the Birthday Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies. There are several birthday themed sentiments in the set and floral elements that you can arrange around them. I stamped the 'happy birthday' sentiment in black ink and then started stamping different stems and flowers around the sentiment. The leaves are stamped in two shades of green inks and the flowers are stamped with a pink ink and white pigment ink. The lighter pink on the flowers is actually the white ink layered on top of the pink!


I stamped some additional floral elements on kraft cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating dies to pop them up around the birthday sentiment. I splattered a bit of white ink around the flowers and added a few sequins for a finishing touch.



The final card I have to share today is created with the Think Happy Stamp & Cut Combo set. Rainbows are definitely a thing lately, aren't they? I LOVE all of the different variations and possibilities out there. I die cut this cute rainbow from watercolor paper and then used liquid watercolors to color the arcs of the rainbow and the flowers and leaves in the cloud.


I set the rainbow and cloud elements onto a background I created by die cutting more watercolor paper with the Silver Lining dies to make it look like a puffy, cloudy, sky. I combined the 'happy' and 'day' words from the stamp set to create my 'happy day' sentiment and stamped it in black in onto the background next to the rainbow. This is the perfect card to send some joy to a friend!
