The Greetery Man Made Collection

Hello and welcome, friends! I'm excited to be here today sharing three projects from the new release from The Greetery! This collection is so fabulous and really is perfect for all of the men in your life! Up first is a super cute new set called "Dad Jokes High Steaks"! I chose to create a card and gift to showcase how cute and "punny" this new set is! Before I dive into the details, however, you'll definitely want to head to The Greetery Blog to get pricing and info about each new product! Also, there will be 2 winners of a $50 gift certificate picked from the comments, so make sure to leave comments on each stop of the hop!

As soon as I read this particular sentiment that says "You're not old, you're well-seasoned", I KNEW I wanted to incorporate some type of steak/meat seasoning! I've been working hard in my flower beds and made many trips to the store. The grilling section is right by the flowers and soil, so I grabbed a bottle and gussied it up! I used the new Tartan Builder Stencils, both the regular and diagonal for the card and seasoning bottle.

One of my favorite parts about this new steak set is that you can die cut the fork portion using silver paper to make it look real! 
The seasoning bottle also uses the new Dad Squared stamp set and die to create the "DAD-love you" portion of the sentiment and then the "You're not old, you're well seasoned" is from the new Dad Jokes High Steaks stamp set. I used ScorTape to secure the plaid strip around the bottle, but the back is left uncovered so you can read directions and see nutrition information!

Up next is a fabulous new "artsy" set called Reflections! I absolutely love how easy this set is to use and gives you the look of a watercolor painting effortlessly!

I particularly love that is has the "Grandpa" sentiment to stretch its usefulness even further! As you can see, I've created yet another plaid background using the new Tartan Stencils Diagonal. I used Distress Oxide inks for this background as well. I used Washi tape to secure ALL of the stencils except the two stencils with the pinstripes. I got better results when I secured the stencil down with Pixie spray.

This set also has a coordinating die, which die cuts the tops of the trees and down the side of the grass. I chose not to use it, but now I'm kicking myself after seeing Betsy's lovely samples with it cut! Oh well....that's the beauty of stamps...you can make something over and over again as many times as you like and you never run out, right?

I stamped my images using Distress Oxide ink and then went in with some watercolors to add extra detail. I also used a brown marker to enhance the sand/shore portion a bit as well.

I stamped the different sentiments to create this phrase on my card. The Love You, So much, and Grandpa are all separate so you can mix and match to suit your needs!

I added a bit of ink splatter in both tan and blue to give the card a bit more detail. I cut the panel a bit so that you could see the plaid background peeking out. I placed it on the right side so that you could see the bigger portion of the tartan on the left side.

Even though this is the Man Made Collection, I couldn't help bring in a few flowers! ha ha! I used the new Sentiments Squared stamp/die paired with the new Text Box Die to create this bright and cheery Hello card!

To begin, I had a ball creating the beautiful Forget-Me-Nots. I used the new Fond of Foliage background stamp that was released last month and stamped it in a bright yellow! I love how it turned out, but kicked myself when I realized what a fun tartan background I COULD and SHOULD have made! ha ha!

I had fun creating the "hello" portion of the sentiment and putting it all together! I had a lot of fun using all of these fun new products! Head to the other designers' blogs to see how they've used them!
