I’m back with more inspirations featuring the Greetery‘s Gathered Blessings collection, and today we’ve got new BotaniCuts and more beautiful florals and sentiment sets! Many of you have spotted the gorgeous mushrooms and maple leaves on my Instagram and scattered around as photo props earlier and I’m excited to share the projects I’ve made with these beautiful die cuts!
This first project features the Botanicuts Mighty Oak dies and Blessed Blooms set. I love ink blending fall colors. It’s so incredibly addicting! What I did here was die cut several leaves in green and yellow cardstock. Then I came with some ink blending with Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo, and Ripe Persimmon distress oxide inks. The branch and stems were die cut out of kraft cardstock and lightly blended with Vintage Photo distress oxide ink.
I die cut the large scallop circle using the Cake Pops Stand die and ink blende dit with Bundled Sage distress oxide ink. I just wanted to give it a hint of color in the background and layered a piece of kraft cardstock and plaid pattern paper behind it.
The sentiment is stamped and die cut out with the Blessed Blooms set. The second part of the sentiment ‘to you & yours’ was heat embossed in white onto yellow cardstock. Then I used some of the inks I already used on the leaves to ink blend it.
This next one features the Botanicuts Toadstool Garden. I love to color and ink blend purple and pink mushrooms, and I don’t know why! I die cut each of the mushroom tops out of pink and lavender cardstock and then added more gradients through ink blending with distress oxide inks.
The underbelly and stems of the mushrooms were die cut out of white cardstock and ink blended with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress oxide inks. Once all the pieces are done, I assembled them together.
I created a simple background to go with all these mushrooms. The background was ink blended with Blueprint Sketch, Shaded Lilac, and Bundled Sage distress oxide inks. I stamped the sentiment from Blessed Blooms directly onto the background in the top center and then die cut this piece using largest frame of the Crimped Frame Die.
This last one was very easy to make and almost one layer with no masking. The floral images stamped here are from the Mimosa Musings set. It’s a very forgiving layered stamp set, so I love it! I stamped the largest image directly onto the background first, one int he top right and turned 180 in the bottom left.
I then stamped the smaller flourish and die cut those. These were layered onto the card with foam tape to complete the full frame of the mimosas. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in the center in brown and a dark gold ink.
I added a light amount of brown paint spaltter after and also gently blended some edges with Vintage Photo distress oxide ink to give a little more character.
I hope you’ve enjoyed all the projects shared in the past couple of days. For more details on all the products, be sure to stop by The Greetery blog and check other designer blogs for more inspirations with today’s featured products. Tomorrow, Friday, August 28th is release day!
