The Greetery

Cherry Tree

 

Hi Everyone!

My card for today uses the colours from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I used the amazing Fir & Foliage No 1 stamp and die set from The Greetery to create this bright cherry blossom tree, together with the Whittle Clouds dies by Poppystamps and a  Simon Says Stamp sentiment.

Sending Love and Hearts

Hello again everyone!

Today I’m playing along with two challenges with this card today – the Card Concept challenge and the Poppystamps challenge where the theme is hearts.

I was inspired by the colours in the Card Concept’s inspiration photo so decided to use pink and browns for my card. I went for the Clean and Layered design, using lots of die cut layers but also keeping the card quite clean with a good amount of white space. I used dies by Poppystamps (Francesca Heart and the Whittle Birds), Honey Bee Stamps (Heart Vine) and The Greetery (wood Slices). The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

AAA Cards Made in Minutes with Christmas

Hi there!

It’s time for our last challenge of 2020 at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card in ‘minutes’. Our optional twist this time is ‘Christmas’. Stamplorations is our sponsor.

Some of you may remember that this is my least favourite challenge theme – for me crafting is relaxing, not something I want to rush through. Mind you, I have to confess that this time, I did actually make the card in minutes!

I used a die from The Greetery to emboss a section of the card base and then assembled my snowflake (Birch Press Frosty Flake layering die).

To complete my card, I added a Mama Elephant.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Dena, who has some great cards on her blog.

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 20 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 20 was The Greetery. I LOVE their products! So innovative! I just wish they had a UK retailer! Anyway, having just bought the word slice dies, I was delighted to see that Lisa  had used them for her inspiration! I really would never have thought of using patterned paper with this die and I although I couldn’t quite use plaid paper, I did use a flowery pattern instead! I really like how this turned out! The pine branches are by Pretty Pink Posh and the sentiment is by Savvy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there flower!

Hello friends!

There’s another amazing colour palette from the Color Throwdown Challenge  this week – purple, light green, teal and ivory.

Here’s what I came up with – I finally used another brand new background die, bought eons ago plus The Greetery Sunflower dies and a Waffle Flower Crafts sentiment die.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bright sunflowers

Hello friends!

I’m finally back at my craft table after a short break and decided to play along with one of my favourite challenges and my brand new set of dies, the BotaniCuts sunflower dies from The Greetery. Such a great set!

Anyway, I thought they would be perfect for the gorgeous colour palette over at the Color Throwdown Challenge this week – navy, mustard, coral and cream.

I created a few inky backgrounds from my Distress Oxide inks and then used them for my sunflowers. I embossed a navy panel with a folder that I picked up in JoAnns, adhered the flowers and then added a Simon Says Stamp sentiment and a few gems to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
