the greetery - spring market day 1


Hey, everyone! There's a new release happening this week at The Greetery and the theme is Spring Market and it's also the 2nd anniversary celebration! I am so excited for Betsy and two wonderful years for the Greetery. I am so lucky to be a part of this beautiful company and get to create with the awesome products. It's day one of reveals and I have several projects to share with you that I created with the new products. As the theme implies, this release is full of flowers! Florals are always versatile to use for so many different occasions.

All of the new products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on Wednesday, April 28th, 10AM ET at The Greetery.


This first card is created with the new Always in Bloom products. I used the Always in Bloom Quick Cards stencil to add the leaves and flowers to a piece of kraft cardstock using blender brushes. I stenciled the leaves in green ink and added the flowers in white ink that is also shaded with a little bit of color. I used the Always in Bloom stamp set to add the details to the flowers. The stenciled panel is cut out with a Nordic Frames die and I backed the panel with white cardstock so it would peek through the openings on the border.


The stencil includes the 'bloom' word, but I used the stamp and coordinating die to add the word popped up a bit on the card instead. I stamped the sentiment above the flowers in black ink and added tiny white rhinestones scattered through the flowers to finish off the card.



I used the new Bold Alphabet dies and Alphabuds Bold Floral Details stamps & dies to make a card for Mother's Day. I die cut the letters from pink cardstock and stacked up several layers to pop them up from the card. I used the new Alphabuds to create floral sprays above and below the 'mom' word. It was so much fun to arrange these little blooms!


The background on the card is stamped using the Fond of Foliage Background stamp with white ink on Kraft cardstock. I love this leafy background and can see myself reaching for it often! The final touch on this card is a tiny tag stamped with the 'all my love' sentiment from the Sentiment Suite love stamp set.




There's a big birthday happening at my house this week (Hana!) and I created this card with the new Bold Numbers dies and Delightful Digits die to mark the event! I die cut the '18' from kraft cardstock, added it to a Crimped Circles die cut, and stamped the sentiment details with the Digits Sentiments stamp set.

The number and sentiment are encircled with tiny flowers that I stamped and cut out with the Alphabuds Bold Floral Details stamps & dies. Doesn't it make a pretty wreath?


The background on this card is a bit of a happy accident. I meant to cut the Delightful Digits die out with white cardstock to create a tone on tone look, but accidentally cut it out from cream cardstock. I really love the look of the cream over the white cardstock, don't you? It's still a tone on tone look, but with a bit more elegant effect.


Make sure to take advantage of the 2nd anniversary sale when the new products release on Wednesday, plus there are giveaways happening over on The Greetery blog!
