The Greetery {Spring Fling Collection} Day 1

Hello and welcome! I'm so happy to be here today sharing some spring projects using the beautiful new Spring Fling Collection from The Greetery! You can find the official "meet and greet" over on The Greetery Blog and there will be two $50 gift certificates given away each day so make sure to leave a comment here, and on each of the designers' blogs, to be eligible to win! 
My first card features the gorgeous new BotaniCuts Lilacs die. I love how easy this die set is to use and you can achieve beautiful results almost effortlessly. You can make your clusters as full as you want depending on your preferences!

I really wanted the lilacs to take center stage so I used them as the focal point with a beautiful sentiment from the Scripted Sentiments stamp set that was included in the last release! I thought the fonts worked perfectly with the lilacs to achieve the look and feel I was going for!

I used the Halfsies Oval Die to create the frame over the top of the stamped panel which uses the Spring Meadow Background Stamp. I layered it all together and then added the lilacs and sentiment. A sprinkling of glitter finishes off this first card!

Up next is a springtime card using the ingenious and darling Seagrass Basket Die. You can actually weave the two basket pieces together like I did here, OR  you can simply glue the two pieces together without weaving if you're short on time. I filled my basket with the darling flowers included in the Botanicuts Wildflower Mix Die. If you've been around awhile then you know how much I adore these cute flowers; I really can use them all the time if I put my mind to it! ha ha!

The basket die also comes with this cute label; I stamped it with one of the many sentiments included in the new All Occasion Script Sentiments stamp set. This is one that you could leave on your desk permanently because you would need it so often....it's just that versatile and handy!

The basket die also includes a handle which you can simply glue down, but I chose to add some mini silver brads for added detail.

My final project for today uses the ever-so-sweet new stamp/die/stencil set called Spring Snowdrops! I'm smitten...it's so cute! I made two cards because I wanted to showcase the two main sentiments included in the set: Spring and Hope. As you can see, they both say Spring! LOL! I'm a huge dork and heat embossed two sentiments that coordinate with Spring! ha ha! I liked both of them so I just went with it! I can use the Hope sentiment soon!

This suite of products is very easy to use and I can't wait to try other color combinations with the Snowdrops.

As I mentioned before, there are two main sentiments. I really like that they both have coordinating dies so you can cut out the scripted sentiment.

I heat embossed the companion sentiment in white detail embossing powder onto Pale Peony cardstock and then added it below the main sentiment. I added a generous sprinkling of glitter to give it a snowy or dewy look! Remember to leave a comment here and on each of the designers' blogs to be eligible for a chance to win one of the gift certificates to the shop! Thanks for fluttering by!
P.S. Join me again tomorrow for day 2!

Sra. Spitzer said...

Dear Kelly -
Your cards are super pretty! I love the lilac one - my bday is in June, just after they've flowered most years (PA) and so that shrub/tree has always been one of my faves (I guess I associate it w/ summer, being out of school, and my bday). Your basket is beautiful - lifelike! And I think your snowdrops card is amazing as well. Your work is always super-polished and very "together"-looking. This teacher gives your projects - all - A+!

Kelly,

I have a question about the Seagrass Basket card you’ve created. What size card is this? A2 or a 5x7 card? The Seagrass Basket die looks pretty large that’s why I ask. As with all your designs these are equally lovely. I feel like you about those wildflowers - love em! Thanks in advance, Susie ~
