Welcome to day two of full reveals for the Sweet and Sunny Collection from The Greetery! Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments; they're so fun to read! I'm glad to hear you're loving this release as much as I am! You'll want to head to The Greetery Blog for the official "meet and greet" for all of the new products being showcased today! Just like yesterday, there will be two winners chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs and will receive a $50 gift card to The Greetery shop!
As you can see, I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to the bee theme that was introduced yesterday and I still needed to use this big and beautiful bee! I love the size and it will be perfect for tags and cards and all kinds of projects! This particular card also features the fabulous, and I mean FABULOUS, new stencil/die set called Leaves All Around! It makes the most beautiful frame of leaves and hanging clusters to accent so many cards and projects! you can cut it in half to use to cradle different containers and images. I think Wanda used it yesterday as an accent for her bee!
I added some blooms that were left over from yesterday's cards and then added the cute little honeycomb accents for the centers of the flowers. These little accents are included in the Buzzy Bits that are part of this release! I was positively giddy when I saw how cute they looked as the flower centers! I fear I may be using them quite a bit now! I arranged the bees in the corners and then added the sentiment, which is from the Buzz Worthy stamp set, in the center!
My next card uses the absolutely fabulous new Jumbo Curiosity Dragonfly, Moth, and Butterfly dies/stencils. I absolutely LOVE that you can add the beautiful patterns so easily with the coordinating stencils!
I found a really magical print that was the inspiration for today's card! Simple, yet bold! After I was finished, I thought that the beautiful new Leaves All Around would have been beautiful as well; I can't seem to stop dreaming up new ideas!
My third card for today uses the AMAZING new BotaniCuts Hollyhocks! I had so much fun inking them up using assorted Distress Oxide inks. I sat and fussed and fiddled with these beautiful blooms, but when it was all said and done; the watering can won! I have a few blooms left so I think I'll keep tinkering with them for a more "garden" type look!
Of course, I had to add another little bee flitting around the blooms! I feel like I've given the BotaniCuts Wildflower Mix a workout over the last few months, but they're just the perfect thing to tuck here and there!
The background was created using the Seed Catalog Background Stamp and then I layered the watering can and flowers over the top using foam squares.
Make sure to head to the other designers' blogs and leave a comment to increase your chances of winning! Thanks for fluttering by!
