The Greetery Winter's Song Release Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the amazing Winter's Song release from The Greetery! Thank you so much for ALL of your sweet comments on yesterday's post! You are all so kind! I had so much fun working on all of these projects! You can head to The Greetery Blog to read all about today's beautiful and amazing projects and as always, make sure you head to the other designers' blogs to see their gorgeous creations!

For today's cards, I've incorporated some of yesterday's reveals along with the new sets for today! Up first is a gorgeous new set called Budding Beauties; this is perfect to fill up the gorgeous jars from the previous releases! I decided to show some other ways to use these branches and stems on today's designs!

I used another one of the sentiments from the Pine Blossoms stamp set that was showcased yesterday. I always love sending out thank you cards for our Christmas gifts and like making them in this type of style; wintery and seasonal! 

To begin this design, I stamped the foliage from the Budding Beauties stamp set using my MISTI so that I could make multiples quickly. I actually stamped each of the three different stem twice ; mistletoe, pine and berries, and the holly and berries. I didn't end up by using the mistletoe, but I saved it so I can use it on another project.

I prepared a panel of a sage colored cardstock by adding some white paint splatter and "frosted" the edges with a white ink pad. I set that aside as well as the stamped images to work on a few other design details. I didn't get a chance to use the Inside and Out Berry Branch die on yesterday's cards, so I used it on this card. I just love how it looks peeking out from behind the focal panel. All of this is layered up onto that sage paint flecked panel I talked about earlier.

I'm head-over-heels in love with the new Fit to Be Tied Die collection, which is what I used to create the bows on the three cards I'm sharing today. I actually combined two of the different bows to create this layered look. There is a smaller detail die that is meant to be used with the larger solid bow, but I just couldn't resist the extra flair the loopy one adds to the design. I added some dew drops here and there to enhance the snowy feel. I added the sage piece to an A2 top folding red cardbase using foam squares.

I hadn't planned on bringing pink into the mix again, but it had a way of sneaking back in! LOL! I created another pink stenciled background like I used in two of my cards yesterday because I loved it so much! It accented this design perfectly and gave it just the feel I was searching for!

I created a layered gold bow for this particular card giving it a luxe feel. I also added some white paint splatter to the red panel that is die cut from the Nordic Frames that were showcased yesterday. The sentiment is heat embossed for a crisp, stark result.

My third and final card for today uses the AMAZING new BotaniCuts Pine Bough die. I'm SOOOOO in love with this and I know I will be using it ALL THE TIME! I really wanted to focus in on all of the fun details of these dies, so I kept the design simple.

To begin, I die cut all of the pieces to create two branches of pine boughs and the two sizes of pinecones. I did some ink blending on the pinecones, branches, and needles to give it some extra detail. I added these to a piece of Kraft cardstock that has some white paint splatter {surprise, surprise}. I used liquid glue and foam squares to get them all secured.

I also added another red bow using the same combination of dies that I used on the first two cards. Like I mentioned earlier, this is not necessarily the way they are supposed to be put together, but I love the look that it gives, so I used them this way.

I used a 2 way glue pen on the pinecones and needles and then sprinkled a generous amount of clear tinsel glitter to give it a realistic icy/snowy look. I also added the sentiment, which is from the previously released Tree Trimmings Stamp Set, onto a strip of rustic white cardstock. This is added to the card using foam squares.

A trio of sparkling clear sequins finish off this rustic design. I have only scratched the surface of the possibilities of ALL of these amazing products! My goal for December is to put these all to use to create even more fun projects! I hope you've enjoyed today's post; remember, all of these beautiful new products go on sale on the 22nd! Thanks for fluttering by!
