Hey there friends! If you’ve been following along the ride throughout sneak peeks with The Greetery through their blog, social media, or any other outlet, then you’re just excited as I am about this week! But for friends that are just tuning in, let me just quickly catch you up to speed. After years of designing products for stamping and cardmaking, my friend Betsy Veldman has ventured out to start her own company, The Greetery. She is incredibly talented and someone that continues to surprise me with her innovative designs time after time! If you’re interested in reading about her story, definitely check out this post.
It’s launch week, four days of inspirations, products reveals, prizes and on the fifth day the official launch! Today we’re taking a closer look of two collections: Hand in Hand and Fir & Foliage No. 1. Hand in Hand is a stamp and coordinating die combo with these sweet line images that you can color however you want. My go-to coloring medium is copic markers, so it was the first thing I had to try! I stamped the images in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them with copic markers, then die cut the images with the coordinating dies.
I am totally obsessed with the Fir & Foliage No. 1 collection. I used the Fir & Foliage No. 1 stencils to create the tree on the left, ink blended with distress oxides. There are three layers of stencils for this tree.
I stamped the sentiments from the set in the top right and bottom left corners. I added some ground with kraft card stock and adhered the images right on it with foam tape.
For my next card, I used the stamped tree images from the Fir & Foilage No. 1 collection. I was so inspired by Betsy’s sneaks that I wanted to create a scene of cherry blossom trees as they were also in season and blooming! The cherry blossoms were stamped in Altenew dye inks: Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite, and Sand Dunes. I then used the coordinating dies to die cut out the trees.
The scene was created with the Pathway stencil and blended with distress oxides. I created a purplish sky to coordinate with my cherry blossom trees. The little girl and dog from Hand in Hand were stamped and colored with copic markers, then die cut. I added her on the path and the trees along the path with foam tape. Isn’t the scene so sweet? I thought this card would be great for someone who adopted a new pet!
Thanks for coming by today, and hope you’ll join me tomorrow as I share more projects with The Greetery’s first release! Be sure to stop by The Greetery blog and other fabulous guests below for more inspiration!
