I'm super excited to be here today for Day 1 of the Spring Market release from The Greetery! It's also The Greetery's SECOND birthday, which means it's time for a CELEBRATION! Head to The Greetery Blog to read all about today's new products! I know they will all be explained perfectly there!
I have A LOT to share with you today (more than normal) because I just couldn't stop creating and wanted to showcase each of the reveal products for today! Up first is a phenomenal new set called "Always in Bloom". This one showcases the stamps/dies which are perfect for all of your spring crafty projects!
To begin, I created the Shiplap Border and adhered it to an A2 panel of Smokey Shadow cardstock. I heat embossed the "It's your time to" portion of the sentiment using my favorite White embossing powder. I adhered the shiplap panels using liquid glue so I could make sure they were properly lined up and I like the literal "wiggle" room it allows! ha ha!
From there, I added the stamped flowers using foam squares for dimension.
I'm so obsessed with the style of the "bloom" sentiment and want to use it EVERYWHERE!
My second card for today uses the "Always In Bloom Quick Card Layering Stencils"! These are perfect for when you need to mass produce a design or you're in a hurry! They're so much fun to use and you can add in the detail portion using the "Always In Bloom" stamp set.
This card also features the new Bold Alphabet Dies and the coordinating "Alphabuds Bold Floral Details" stamp/die set. I jazzed up this simple design with one of the previously released Put a Bow on It, which gives it some added detail and dimension!
I also added some colored pencil detail to the small pink flowers in the bouquet and added some glitter to give it a little something extra as well.
I'm seriously in love with this new alphabet because of all of the details that are included in the dies. They're so classy and the coordinating Bold Alphabuds are so sweet!
The short and simple "hi" allows for the "thinking of you" addition on the bow to enhance this simple design as well.
The Crimped Frame detail matches perfectly with the details on the letters, which I just love!
My third project for today uses the fabulous new Bold Numbers Die for this graduation card! I also paired it with the new Digit Sentiments stamp set and the new Alphabuds Bold stamps/dies.
These awesome new letters and numbers work perfectly with all of the Slimline products that are now available! I just love how this graduation design turned out using the Nordic Slimline Dies. I'm obsessed with all of the gorgeous detail that these dies add! I placed the Crimped Circle
in between the two Nordic frames for a fun accent.
The Congratulations portion of the sentiment was adapted from one of the Digit Sentiments by omitting the "on" portion of the sentiment.
Up next is another project using the "Always In Bloom Quick Card Stencils". I used some of the leftover panels from my first card to create a "planter box" accent for the simply stenciled flowers.
Just because you're using something labeled "quick" doesn't mean you have to skimp on sweet details to make your project shine!
I stamped the sentiments directly at the top of the panel and then added the "Bloom" die cut over the top of the flowers.
The Postal Frames Die adds just the right amount of extra detail to make this card go from simple to special!
I had a flower cluster leftover from my first card, so I added it to the bottom of the planter box to give it even more detail!
My FINAL card for today uses the new "Delightful Digits" die paired with the new Bold Numbers Die! This card is for my daughter who will be turning 18 this year, which is blowing my mind!
To begin this design, I die cut the "Delightful Digits" background piece from Berry Sorbet cardstock and then layered it over the top of a Sweet Blush panel using liquid glue.
I die cut the Crimped Circle and stamped the "look who's turning" sentiment in black. I added the 18 and the Alphabuds Bold images on either side using mini foam squares. I sandwiched the grey banner pieces, which is from the Crimped Slimline Die, between the Nordic Circle. I didn't have nearly enough time to use all of these fabulous circles and slimline dies with the last release so I'm making up for lost time! ha ha! I added a bow that was die cut using the Fit To Be Tied Die at the top for a festive birthday touch!
Whew! That was A LOT to share, but that concludes all of the projects for Day 1! I don't have nearly this much for tomorrow, but I LOVE everything in this release! Join me again for Day 2, but don't forget to head to the other designers' blogs to see their gorgeous creations! Thanks for fluttering by!
