The Greetery {Urban Jungle Collection} Day 1

Hello and welcome to day 1 of full reveals for the new Urban Jungle Collection from The Greetery! I'm so glad you've joined me; I know you're going to fall in love with the ENTIRE release, just like I have! This one, in my opinion, is especially "squeal-worthy"! You can read all about each of today's featured products on The Greetery Blog for the official "meet and greet"! Make sure to leave a comment here, and on each designers' blog, for a chance to win one of two $50 gift certificates.

My first project for today features the absolute cutest new Greenhouse die! I am absolutely in love with it; so much so that I decided to make a set of 4 cards to include in a notecard set to give as a gift! I purchased these jute drawstring bags on Amazon with the hope of putting the entire card set inside, but the dimensions didn't quite work! I decided to utilize them as a container to put the card, tucked inside the envelope, and include a seed packet! For those of you who visit regularly, you may have remembered that I included a seed packet inside each of my Easter cards that I sent this year. I have some left over, so I think they will be absolutely perfect for this project!

You can see each of the 4 designs here; each card features the new Green house die, the new Garden Tub Fillers die, and the adorable new  Little Labels stamp + cut combo. Each card also features a few of the cute flowers included in the Garden Bits.

Each card also features the Pathway Stencil at the bottom to "ground" the greenhouse.

The Greenhouse is nice and big as you can see and fits perfectly on an A2 card. The door is included, but is a separate die so you can cut it from cardstock of your choice. It does have the option to have it "swing" open, but for this card set, I knew that wasn't practical, but it is super cute!

I created the tab using a few new goodies that I will talk about later; I made the tag when I thought the entire set would fit in one drawstring bag, but since that's not the case, I will use it someplace else! ha ha!
My second card features the absolute cutest Garden Tub die and the Garden Tub Fillers Die. (and I'm sneaking the new Woven Cane Background in today, but will showcased tomorrow). I have a friend in the neighborhood that has garden tubs lining her park strip and filled with plants and flowers; this will most definitely be her birthday card since her birthday is coming up this month!

I die cut the Garden Tub from metallic silver cardstock and also from white. I glued them together for a sturdy piece. I glued the handles on using liquid glue. I also heat embossed the sentiment using the new Little Labels stamp + cut combo!

You all know how obsessed I am with the BotaniCuts Wildflower dies since they seem to make an appearance for almost every release! The Garden Tub Filler diecut was just begging for some of these sweet wildflowers!

With the garden tub just teaming with wildflowers, it is just natural that a few Honey Bees would be there, too! ha ha! I die cut the Woven Cane Background and then added it over the top of an A2 card base with some ink around the edges. I added some glitter for some sparkle and shine! I had a leftover panel of the cane background that I used as a stencil for the envelope flap; just a fun touch with a stamped Little Labels sentiment.

My final project for today might be my favorite; it uses the AMAZING new Petal Pusher stencil, Background Die, and Blooms die. I had a little trial and error with this one, but that is usually how it goes with me and stencils/coordinating dies! ha ha!

I won't bore you with the embarrassing details of attempt number one, but rather give you helpful tips for success on your first try! ha ha! you can see in this photo that I used the extra pieces from the card to create the coordinating tag that I shared earlier.

To begin, you will want to die cut an A2 panel using the Petal Pusher Background and then begin your stenciling over the top. I also die cut two of each of the pieces included in the Petal Pusher Blooms die collection so I could have some fun layering.

Once all of the stenciling was done, I popped up all of the pieces that I wanted to flare up (the beauty of this collection) and then added the die cut pieces over the top. I used the same ink on the die cut pieces as I did for the stenciling. I'm always amazed by the results of a stenciled panel so oftentimes I just sit and stare at it before I do anything else.

I gave an audible squeal when I was finished with the stenciling and then of course the added blooms just really brought it to life! In the end, I just couldn't stand the thought of covering it up, so opted for a simple embossed sentiment.

I added glitter for some sparkle and shine! This was SUCH  fun card to make and I can't wait to make panel after panel!!! Don't forget to head to the other designers' blogs to leave comments and see their gorgeous creations! Join me again for day 2 of reveals! Thanks for fluttering by!
