The Greetery: Lots of Love with Nature

Hi everyone! Today is the first day of introduction of the upcoming Nature Lover Collection from the Greetery! I am excited to share with you all my project inspirations using several of the products revealed today. Usually I tend to craft in a soft pink and purples for Valentine’s, but with this collection, I was easily inspired to indulge in lots of greens, blues, and a little purple and I love the change!

This clean and simple card features a few products including the Love Is stamp set, Let’s Have A Word: Love die, and Boxwood Heart Base and Details dies. Most of my time was focused on ink blending and assembling the Boxwood Heart.

I die cut everything from the Boxwood Heart Details die in white card stock first. Then, used my blending brushes to add in color to all the boxwood stems with Rustic Wilderness and Bundled Sage distress oxide colors. Then following the guide, I attached each boxwood stem to complete the heart wreath.

I used the Let’s Have A Word: Love die to die cut out the sentiment word ‘love’ in gold mirror card stock and two more times out of white card stock to layer it for dimension. On a separate piece of white cardstock I created an radial ink blend of Tumbled Glass and Speckled Egg distress oxide inks and added some gold paint splatter. I trimmed the piece down to 3.75″ by 5″ and stamped the additional phrases describing love from the Love Is stamp set in the bottom right.

For the next card, I used the Mini Boxwood Heart stamp and cut combo. This is a mini stamp set that stamps out this boxwood heart in 2 steps. Here I used Forest Glades and Evergreen inks and die cut the wreath using its coordinating die.

I wanted to hang this wreath like an ornament so I needed a frame to anchor it to. I first used the Fresh Floral Background Stamp on white card stock to create this pretty, soft pattern paper. Then, I used the Halfsies Oval Die twice to die cut out a frame for my card. I backed this frame against an ink blended background using the same Speckled Egg color.

I tied a bow and hung the wreath (tucked the string underneath) to the frame and adhered it down with foam tape. For my sentiment, I die cut out the word ‘just a note’ with the Opposites Attract dies and used the stamps from Opposites Attract in a dark brown ink. The sentiment was added to the bottom right.

For my final card today, I have used the new Wood Slice Hearts to center my design. This card was very involved was made with lots of die cutting and ink blending! Since I have worked with and ink blended these BotaniCuts Sunflowers before, please see my old post on the details for putting them together.

The wood slices were cut from white card stock and ink blended with Brushed Corduroy and Scattered Straw distress oxide inks. I used both the large and smaller versions of the wood slices to create a cute pair on the card. I used the Opposites Attract stamp and cut combo again, this time picking out the thank you sentiment, using the large ‘thank you’ as my focal point.

I once again used Broken China and Speckled Egg distress oxide inks to ink blend this background. After putting the card together, I used the the Pretty Postmarks stamp set to add some more interest to the card.

Hope you enjoyed all the inspiration today! If you haven’t already, stop on by the Greetery Blog for more details and inspiration. You can also find more projects from my fellow team members listed below:
