The Greetery

Retro deck the halls

Hello again everyone!

Next up today is my entry for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge, which has quite a retro combos – pink, turquoise, green and black.

I turned to my new die sets from The Greetery. The background was created with the Pine Wisp die set and then I added ornaments from the Curio: Attic Ornaments set. To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Sunny Studios.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 23 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 23’s inspiration is Day 18, 2020. Here’s the tag I made then!

This time, one of my favourite cardmakers, Rosemary, provided my inspiration!

I used dies from The Greetery’s Pine Bough Botanicuts set plus their wood slices. I just love those pine cones!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 18 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 18’s inspiration is Day 2, 2012. I liked Tracey’s inspiration but I wanted to see her own inspiration so off I went on a Google search! As I was scanning images, I spotted these beautiful tags by Heather Nichols, so I decided to used those for my take. I used a circle frame die from The Greetery and a wonderful old wood-mounted stamp by Amuse Art Stamps!

AAA Cards sketch challenge

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using the sketch below and if you want to join with our optional twist, please use a gnome!

For the main image, I used my new Fir and Foliage No. 2 set from The Greetery. So pleased that Seven Hills Crafts is stocking this brand now! I added a bit of silvery twine and a Mama Elephant sentiment.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards using  LOTS of gnomes (or gonks as I know them as!) which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Fran, who has some lovely cards on her blog – go check it out!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 15

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 15 of  Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches .

I’m so happy to say that this sketch enabled me to use one of my must-have dies by The Greetery that I bought last year – the Cosy Cup Coaster die which served as a base for my foliage arrangement cut with couple of Poppystamps dies (Pine Branch and Holiday Mistletoe).

To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Mama Elephant and a Sizzix bow!

Thanks for stopping by!
