The Greetery: Gathered Blessings

It’s been a little while since my last post, but I’m excited to be back and sharing with you projects featuring The Greetery‘s new collection called Gathered Blessings. Autumn is my favorite season to craft for with all its beautiful rustic colors! You’ll be seeing a lot of warm tones from me today.

We got a new floral container in the house! This card features the Pitcher-esque stamp set. It’s main image is a 3-step stamped image of this adorable pitcher that can be used to fill in all those floral stems you have in your collection. This card also showcases the new Bittersweet Bouquet stamp set.

You may notice that the background is something new too! This background is made using the Square Dance die and stencil collection. The die creates a criss-cross cut with alternating striped impressions on the squares. It can be used in conjunction with the stencils to add the different colored squares to give you the plaid look!

I layered all my pieces together onto the card, stamping the ‘hello’ sentiment directly onto the vase. The ribbon-like word ‘autumn’ is part of the Bittersweet Bouquet set and added across the vase with foam tape.

This next card features the All Blessings Flow stamp set. I started with a one-layer card idea but ended up propping up the center with foam (…I can’t help it!), but it is mostly one-layer. I lightly ink blended an ombre center with Victorian Velvet, Dried Marigold, and Antique Linen distress oxide inks. Then I stamped the large verse in the center in a dark brown ink.

Next, I used various brown and green dye inks to stamp all the various foliage images around the words. No masking needed! I then die cut this panel with the largest of the Nordic Frames die and added some ink splatter, nuvo dots, and gems for interest.

I made a last minute decision to add a light plaid pattern to my kraft base card using the Square Dance stencil collection. I didn’t ink the blend whole thing, but just enough on the edges so that they peek through behind the stamped panel.

Do you remember the adorable Top Down stamp set from earlier this summer? Introducing the Top Down Autumn Day stamp set with pumpkins and autumn themed sentiments! I decided to take a different approach and use this stamp set standalone here. I stamped the pumpkin outline image twice and colored it up with my copic markers.

I die cut a piece of white card stock using the smallest of the Nordic Frames die and gently ink blended the edges with Antique Linen distress oxide inks. I stamped the sentiment in the center and used my colored pumpkins to frame it top and bottom.

I still have all this space in the background, so I used the Shiplap Builder to create this rustic look. I took the extra time to ink blend each of the shiplap die cut peaces with Antique Linen, Tea Dye, and Vintage Photo distress oxide inks, followed me a light swipe of a kraft dye ink to really bring out the wood grain impressions. It was incredible fun to make!

I hope you enjoy today’s projects! If you haven’t already be sure to stop by The Greetery blog and other designers for more gorgeous projects using today’s featured products. Be sure to come back tomorrow for another day of inspiration before the release on Friday, August 28th!
