The Greetery

Banner & Bough

October 28, 2020

Good Morning Friends! I hope you all are doing well. I am stopping by today with a couple of cards that use some fun new products from The Greetery. I always love Betsy's products and her Merry Makings Collection did not disappoint. 


For my cards today, I am using the Banner & Bough Stamp and Stencil Set


This is such a fun set. There are stencils included in the set that layer together to make the most beautiful Christmas bouquet. Once you finish using the four stencils there are also stamps included to add detail to the flowers and sprigs. 


Once my bouquet was finished I used the Banner & Bough Die Set to die cut the floral bouquet and the banner. You can also leave the banner flat on your card panel for a more clean and simple card.


While I was using the stencils I went ahead and made one more card. I kept the colors very similar, just swapping out the blue and red. So quick and easy to use...I will definitely be making lots more of this card. The colors and combinations are endless.


I hope you enjoyed my cards today. Please feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them. 

Enjoy your day,



Just Saying Hello

Pretty Pink Posh 

October 27, 2020

Good Morning Friends! I hope you all are doing well and having a great week. I shared this card on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog the other day, though I also wanted to share it here on my own blog. 

I started my card by creating an alcohol ink background. I used a rainbow of colors and yupo paper. Once my panel was dry I ran it through my die cutting machine with the Bold Butterflies Die. Don't you just love this butterfly? It is so fun and I love all the possibilities with this type of die.

For my card layout, I splattered a white panel with a little black reinker. I then used the Scallop Border Die to create the decorative edge at the bottom of my white panel. Next, I used a leftover piece of my alcohol ink paper for the bottom of the card. To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment from the Simple Sentiments Stamp Set and heat set it with white embossing powder. Lastly, I attached my butterfly and sentiment to my card panel with foam adhesive. 

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed my card and I will be back soon with another project to share.
Enjoy your day,

Trinity Stamps

October 26, 2020

Good Morning Friends Welcome Back! I hope you all had a great weekend. Were you able to participate in the Instagram Hop for the New Release at Trinity Stamps? There were so many amazing projects! And don't you just love the new release? What is your favorite? I would love to hear. I have been having fun creating and will have a lot to share over the next month or so. 


Today I am using a fun new die called, We Wish You A Merry Christmas Die Set. This is such a versatile die, I love the font and design. I made a rainbow tree but I think it will look amazing die cut from solid cardstock and mounted onto a card panel for a simpler design. 


I started my card by ink blending a panel with Distress Oxide Ink and running it through my die cutting machine with the We Wish You A Merry Christmas Die. I didn't worry too much about a "perfect" blend, because I knew it wouldn't matter one it was cut.


Next, I lightly ink blended the same colors onto my card panel. I then added a few black and white splatters for a little added detail. I used a liquid glue and the negative from my die cut to line everything up on my panel. Lastly, I added a few Melted Icicle Confetti Mix to finish my card.


Thanks for joining me today. I hope you all have a great week and I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Enjoy your day,


Autumn Greetings

Pretty Pink Posh

October 25, 2020

Good Morning Friends! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. We came up to Spokane for a couple of days to visit Morgan. It will be a quick trip, but definitely much needed! We will be enjoying the cooler weather and enjoying our time together...I sure do miss my girls. 

Today I am sharing a fall inspired card for Pretty Pink Posh

I started my card by stamping the Fall Borders Stamp Set with my Misti. I used a watercolor friendly black ink and just moved the stamped along my panel to create a background. Next, I added color with my Karin Brushmakers. This was my first time using these watercolor markers, they are super easy and fun to use. Similar to Zigs except the tip is a little stiffer and the colors are a little more muted in my opinion. I am by no means a watercolor "expert" but I found them to be very easy to use. 


Once my panel was finished, I used Perfect Pearls in Perfect Copper to add a few splatters to my panel. For my sentiment, I used the Pumpkin Patch Critters Set. I stamped it in VersaFine Clair ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder. 


To finish my card, I trimmed my panel down and wrapped it with some twine. I then attached it to my card panel with foam adhesive. Lastly, I added my sentiment to the front. 

Thanks for joining me today. I will be back tomorrow with a Christmas card for Trinity Stamps.

Enjoy your day,


Taylored Expressions

October 24, 2020

Good Morning! I hope you all are doing well. October is almost over (one more week) so I thought I better pop in today with another Halloween card for Taylored Expressions. 

For my card, I am using the Fireworks Background Stamp & Stencil Set. This set was originally designed for the 4th of July, but I think by just changing the colors it can work great for other occasions too. I stamped the background in black ink and used orange and lime green ink with the stencils. For my sentiment, I used the Mini Strips Halloween Stamp. I also used the Mini Strips Backer die to add another layer of color to my sentiments. 


Thanks for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed my card and I will be back soon with another project to share with you all.

Enjoy your day,
