Happy Monday friends! I hope you're having a fabulous day! Things are down-right festive over here for day 1 of the Spring Fever Release at The Greetery! There are so many adorable new products to create projects for Spring and Easter! Of course there are so many that will work all year long as well! You can see all of the products up close and in detail on The Greetery Blog! Up first are these darling carrots in the BotaniCuts family! I am seriously in love, but I think I say that every time a new set of BotaniCuts is released! ha ha!
The flowers are also from a new collection of BotaniCuts; Wildflower Mix! I've used them on EVERY project today so I think that tells you just how much I love them! And....the bow...can we talk about the bow? OBSESSED! This is from the new "Put a Bow On It" stamp/die set! It has so many different sentiments from birthday to Christmas, Easter to Just for You! The possibilities are endless!
I couldn't resist using the Happy Easter sentiment to accent these spring carrots and flowers! I die cut everything out of white cardstock and then used ink and blender brushes to color all of the BotaniCuts and then used ink pads, of course, for the bow!
I am especially obsessed with gingham prints for Spring so each of my cards today uses the Square Dance Stencil set to create the backgrounds.
I added some ink splatter and dew drops for added interest to this simple Easter card!
As you can see I switched the background to pink on this one and then added more of the pretty BotaniCuts Wildflowers. I added them around the perimeter using foam squares and liquid glue. The "Wishing you a lovely" portion of the sentiment is from the new PreText stamp/die set. I used two of the different dies to creat a banner to highlight the sentiment.
The "Spring" word is from the new "Let's Have a Word: Spring" die. I die cut it three times from white cardstock and glued them together using liquid glue. I added some ink to the top using a blender brush.
I added some extra details to the foliage and flowers using colored pencils. I added white Nuvo drops to the centers of some of the flowers for some added detail.
The fun thing about the new BotaniCuts Wildflower Mix is that you can mix and match them in all kinds of different combinations to make your projects truly unique. I had fun putting the different stems together with their blooms.
I had so much fun with the flowers and I can't wait to use them in all kinds of different ways!
Next up is a fun suite of products called "Bunny Hop"! There is a stencil set, stamps, and dies! I used the stencils and dies for this card, but I used the stamps/dies on my last card for today!
I added some flowers to the blue bunnies ears for a fun touch.
You add the nose and eye details with a black pen. I used a fine point sharpie! The "With Love At" portion of the sentiment is from the PreText stamp set and is stamped directly to the gingham background using black ink. I used the "Let's Have a Word" Easter" die and created the same way I did the Spring word on the 2nd previous card.
I added a few sequins for some sparkle and shine!
My last card for today was 100 percent inspired by THIS home decor piece! I used the fabulous Boho Banner Die to create the banner. The sentiment is from the Bunny Hop stamp set as well as the stamped and die cut bunny!
I created the gingham background (of course) and then used the Brick Layer Die to add the subtle brick look in the background.
Of course I had to embellish the card with more flowers! I had a ball using all of these fun new products! Don't forget to stop by the other designers' blogs to see what visual delights they have to share! Thanks for fluttering by!
