Well friends, it's day 2 of full reveals for the New Beginnings Collection from The Greetery! Thanks for all of your sweet comments on yesterday's post; I'm glad you are enjoying the new collection! I've got 3 more cards to share with you today, but I wanted to let you know that the official "meet and greet" for today's featured products can be found on The Greetery Blog. Also, leave a comment here and on each of the designers' blogs for a chance to win one of 2 $50 gift certificates to the shop!
My first card for today using the AMAZING new BotaniCuts Morning Glory die set. It is such an easy set to use with fantastic results! I had so much fun creating these two different clusters. I die cut everything twice and then just followed the guide for assembly. I found two different varieties of Morning Glories and just colored them as closely as I could to make them look realistic.
I set them aside to dry since I assembled them with liquid glue and foam squares. Since each cluster is quite large (large enough to nicely cover an A2 sized card), I decided to make a slimline card. I die cut a black panel using the Nordic Slimline Die and then added white acrylic paint splatter and let it dry.
I cut and scored the card base and then added the die cut panel over the top using black foam squares. I layered the Morning Glory clusters over the top using additional foam squares.
The sentiment, which was carefully chosen because of its use of the word morning, was heat embossed in white onto black cardstock. This particular sentiment is from the New Day Sentiments stamp set and then die cut using the coordinating New Day Sentiments die.
I placed the sentiment in the middle using additional foam squares.
I used a Wink of Stella pen on the leaves and blooms for some understated sparkle.
My second card uses a lot of new favorites: Jumbo Curiosity: Nest, Jumbo Curiosity: Feathers, and the new Spring Meadow Background stamp, and another sentiment from the New Day Sentiments stamp set.
I think this is one of my favorites in the Jumbo Curiosities collection; I love birds and nests so I can see myself reaching for this often.
I love that the New Everyday stamp set has coordinating dies; it makes card designing a little bit more versatile.
I used the Spring Meadows Background stamp as a background for the curio box. I used the Curio Cover Die to make the curio box and then colored it with Distress Oxide inks.
I had a few extra flowers left over from my first card, which are from the BotaniCuts Wildflower Mix, and added them here and there.
I used the Big Branches: Ruscus Die and die cut the large branch that the nest is resting on. A few gold hinges finish off this card.
My third and final card for today, and for the release, uses the new Spring Meadows stencil/die set paired with the new Spring Meadows Background stamp.
I chose to add the die cut flowers over the top of a few of the blossoms, but leave the rest stenciled for some variation.
I never used the Rejoice! die yesterday, so I decided to use it with this floral design. That being said, the New Day Sentiment stamp set is designed to go with this set perfectly. I figured a few of the designers would show it with those beautiful sentiments, so I chose this one.
This is such an easy-to-use stencil set you will be wanting to create bouquet after bouquet; I know I am! Don't forget to leave a comment here and on each of the designers' blogs for a chance to win one of the 2 gift certificates! Thanks for fluttering by!
