The Greetery Breath of Spring Reveal Day 1

I'm so excited to be here today for day 1 of reveals for the Breath of Spring collection from The Greetery! I hope you love everything as much as I do! As always, you'll want to head to The Greetery Blog for the official "meet and greet" for each of the new products. Make sure to leave a comment here and on each designers' blogs for a chance to win one of 2 $50 gift certificates.
My first project for today is a set of notecards and Stationery Box using the fabulous new Print Shop: Spring Mix stamp set and stencil set! If you've used any of the products in the Print Shop Collection, then you know how much fun they can be!

The Print Shop: Spring Mix stamp set includes 4 different sentiments; Happy Birthday, For You, Hello, and Thanks. I couldn't decide which sentiment to use so I thought it would be perfect to create a set of notecards using each of the different sentiments. To begin, I stenciled and stamped 6 panels using the Spring Mix stencil set and stamps. This project only uses 5; one for each of the 4 note cards, and one for the outside of the box. That leaves one extra that I will be sharing on a project later this week.

I made certain to be VERY careful while stenciling because I wanted to use the coordinating Spring Mix die. I knew that any misaligned portions could lead to sloppy panels. ha ha! I was thrilled that all 6 panels cut perfectly and my precision paid off! I love that the stencils from The Greetery have guide lines and are numbered so you can stencil the right steps in order.

I also stamped quite a few of the stand-alone blooms so I could add them to the panels as I desired. Each panel is adhered to an A2 size card base with a bit of inkblending and splatter near the top. I also stamped the 4 different sentiments in the right corner using Weathervane ink.

I created 4 coordinating envelopes using the Flappable Stencil Collection. To create the gingham flap, you simply flip the stencil over once you've created the first set of stripes to create the gingham. I'm positively smitten with this Lilac Grace gingham! The box is die cut from Lilac Grace cardstock and assembled using ScorTape. I used the Disc Magnets so the box will stay shut. Something I didn't realize the past few times I've used these is that there is either a positive or negative sticker on the adhesive backing of each magnet. You will want one of each so that they will close properly.

Up next is the newest addition to the hourglass "time" collection. I couldn't decide between the bunny holding the bouquet of flowers or holding the umbrella, so I used both! ha ha! That little bunny is just the sweetest thing EVER, don't you think? I die cut the Hourglass from Soft Stone cardstock and then added some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink around the edges for some contrast.

I die cut all of the pieces I would need to create the two cards and then had fun stamping to my heart's content! I opted out of the shaker card idea because I struggle with shaker cards! ha ha!  That being said, with the Hourglass Insert die they really are very easy to do! There is a really cute new sequin-y glitter mix coming out as well that will look super cute inside one of these spring hourglasses. I'm sure a few of the other DT members will share a shaker or two!

I absolutely adore the sentiments, which fit perfectly inside the banner that coordinates with this set. 

I had quite a few of the blooms left over from my Spring Mix project so I added one to each of the two hourglass cards. That concludes my projects for today, but don't forget to head back here tomorrow for day 2 of full reveals! There is so much more you're going to fall in love with! Don't forget to head to the other designers' blogs to see how they've used these new products! Make sure to leave a comment here and on every stop to be eligible to win one of 2 $50 gift certificates. Winners names will be drawn from the comments. Thanks for fluttering by!
