The Greetery {All That Glitters Collection}

It's the MOST wonderful time of the year! I'm so happy you're here today as we showcase the beautiful All That Glitters collection from The Greetery! I always love this time of year when Betsy thinks up the best products for us to get our holiday packaging on point! Make sure you head to The Greetery Blog for the official "meet and greet"! Also, you'll want to leave a comment here, and on each of the other designers' blogs, for a chance to win one of two $50 gift certificates to the shop!

My first project for today features the fabulous new "Four Square Holiday Tags" suite of products! Wow...talk about fast and fun! I had so much fun creating this set of tags to coordinate with some of my favorite wrapping paper that I bought last year. I only bought one roll, but ended up LOVING it and the way the gifts looked glistening under the tree in my family room. I went back to get another (or maybe 5) rolls, but it was GONE; I was devastated! Now, I'll be using it for the most special gifts. I made my husband run out and buy an actual gift so that I wouldn't waste it on a "fake" present to showcase my tags! Ha ha! 

This particular suite of products features a stamp/die set and a stamping guide and coordinating die for that so you can achieve the embossed detail at the top of each tag. I think Betsy has a video showing how this suite of products work, so make sure you watch it! It's so much fun!

The Four Square Tags stamp set comes with the most beautiful sentiments, to/from sentiments, and accent images! I decided to make all of my tags so they could be opened like a card and inside is a to/from sentiment.

On this photo you can see that there are coordinating dies for the sentiments and then a beautiful image of foliage to frame your tags!

I had so many wooden beads left over from last year's tags that I decided to add them to the top of each one of these tags as well for an added element of dimension and texture.

These are three of my favorites....I especially love that cute snowflake image in the circle, the Just For You sentiment, and the other smaller accent sentiments!

My next project is a card...we all love to make cards so I wanted to show how easily these new products work for cards as well. This card features the new Magnolia Wreath die and the new BotaniCuts Pear die. 



My card features two wreaths together stacked up for a fuller look. I inked them up using Distress Oxide inks and then glued them together with foam squares for a bit of dimension.

The pears are die cut from gold cardstock; the stems and leaves are die cut from Kraft and then inked with a bit of brown ink. I also die cut the pears from white cardstock and then glued them together for a sturdier piece....the gold cardstock is a little thin and then has a tendency of "curling" when it goes through the die cut machine because of the pressure. I found that by gluing two together it helped smooth it out.

I chose to use some of the gorgeous sentiments from the Four Square Holiday Tags stamp/die set embossed in gold to accent the pears.

For the background, I stenciled the new Snowflake Prints stencil using Fresh Snow pigment ink onto grey cardstock and then ran it through the die cut machine using the Herringbone Parquet die for that gorgeous texture.

For my third project, you can see the stencil better...I chose to make a pair of gift boxes for small gifts or treats! They both feature the gorgeous new Snipped Snowflakes dies, more Four Square Holiday Tags sentiments (I told you I LOVE them ;)) The tag on the top of the left box uses the new Wintry Mix die....this set of dies cuts these beautiful snowflake shapes and then I used the tag dies again and then layered it onto Kraft cardstock so the snowflake would show through.

The box on the right uses the new Tear Strips Coverup die....this coordinates with previously released items in the "Tear Strip" family. I absolutely adore the pierced details with the die cut patterns! In this photo, you can also spy a few of the new BotaniCuts pinecones....they didn't actually make it onto a projectr, but this gives you an idea of what they look like and their size!

This box uses the Snipped Snowflakes 3 die with a gold embossed sentiment.

I used "gilver" glitter cardstock, white cardstock, and vellum and layered them together for visual interest.

This box features the Snipped Snowflakes 2 and I just layered the two different sizes together with both glitter cardstock and white.

You can see the gold embossed sentiment better here and the die cut tag.

I love making 3D projects, but they are a pain to photograph sometimes, so hopefully this last photos gives you a better idea of their height and side dimensions.



My final project for today is ALSO a 3D project which proved to be difficult as well! ha ha! This is a clear cube gift box all gussied up with even more new products!

This is a bird's eye view from the top looking down. This box features the new Wooden Stars dies, the small and large Tassel dies, the new Ribbon Maker Wood Beads, Large Leaves: Magnolia die....and then a few other favorites already showcased earlier in my post!

I also used the Ribbon Maker: Large Scallops Die as a wider base to showcase the Ribbon Maker: Wooden Beads.

You can see the wooden beads poking up on top of the star.

Well friends, this concludes my post to showcase the new collection! Everything will be available for purchase tomorrow morning at 10 am ET. Don't forget to stop by the other designers' blogs to see what magic they have conjured up with this beautiful collection! Thanks for fluttering by!
