Welcome back! Today I will be rounding up my porjects for the upcoming Nature Lover Collection release from The Greetery! This new collection will go up in the shop on Wednesday, January 20 at 10am EST. That’s tomorrow!
There is lots of gorgeous flowers used in today’s cards! This card was created with the multi-stamp flower stamp set called Lovely Blossoms. I love the artistic style of the flowers! The flowers were stamped in Misty Morning, Cloudy Sky, and Nibus inks, accompanied by leaves/stems that were stamped in Forest Glades and Evergreen inks.
Funny enough, when I was setting my flowers on a piece of scrap to dry, it had some excess ink blending that was done for another project in Peacock Feathers and Old Paper distress oxide inks and I thought the colors looked really good next to each other. So that’s exactly what I used here to create a simple ink blended background that I masked off into a smaller rectangle.
I used the sentiment from the Lovely Blossoms stamp set and stamped right in the top center. I arranged my flowers all around the bottom half of the card, adhering it down with various adhesive and foam tapes so that they layer well next to each other. I trimmed off stems that hung past the edge of the card to clena things up.
The next pair of projects are a little different! They feature the new Posy Pocket dies and BotaniCuts Forget-Me Nots die. If you’re familiar with all the previous BotaniCuts, it costs of several dies that assemble into die cut floral with dimension. I die cut everything out of white card stock first, and then gently ink blended color onto each piece with a blending brush.
Following Betsy’s picture guide that comes with the product, I slowly assembled each element together with some liquid glue. I also like to use a heavy paperweight and stamp block to hold it down as I continue to work on other pieces. Once I finished assembly it all, I added some paint splatter for a fun texture.
Next, let’s look at these Posy Pocket dies! I once again used it on white card stock and folded them close. I then opened them back up and maksed off the heart flaps so that I can add some Broken Glass distress oxide ink blending to it. I used the the Pretty Postmarks stamp set to stamp the little ‘just a note’ onto an open area to complete these little notes.
Open them up, write a little note inside, and they are ready to be tucked right into an envelope. Aren’t these so cute?
Thanks for joining me! The release is tomorrow and I can’t wait to see what you guys decide to get and make. You can find more details and inspiration on today’s products on the Greetery Blog. Also check out projects from my fellow team members lister below:
