Morning, crafty friends. Today, I’m sharing a couple of cards I made with this amazing set from The Greetery. I’ve had this set for a while, but only cracked it open yesterday. This shouldn’t be a surprise. I buy faster than I produce, so I’m always playing catch-up.
This set was a lot of fun! It really was. I thought the usage of stencils and stamps to create this amazing background was genius and I really look forward to using more of the products from The Greetery. The products featured are the Print Shop: Fresh Floral Stamp & Stencil set and Birthday Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies.
The cards are essentially the same and just use different color palettes and different sentiments. I did need a couple of birthday cards, so the Birthday Blooms set worked perfectly for this project. This first card uses inks from Pinkfresh Studio: Mermaid Cove, Tidal Pond, Soft Lilac, Lavender, Regal Kiss, Grassy Knoll, and Berrylicious.
For this card I stenciled with the first two of three stencils and before moving on I used an RV00 Copic marker to color the background a light pink. For the sentiment, I white heat embossed onto Lawn Fawn Rainforest cardstock.
For the second card I used colors from Concord & 9th: Grapefruit, Poppy, Cranberry, Sprout, Parsley, Evergreen, Stardust, Peacock. I used a bit of C&9 Evergreen cardstock to offset the primary sentiment and white heat emboss the secondary sentiment.
These were so fun to do and I think they’d make perfect gifts for someone (a box of cards and envelopes). I definitely need to do more Greetery cards.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by!
