A Bounty Of New Autumn Products From The Greetery

Good morning, friends, and welcome to today's August introduction post for The Greetery (all of the new products I am sharing today will be available on The Greetery's website Friday, August 23rd at 10am ET)!

This month is all about autumn and I am absolutely here for it! I love all things autumn. Cozy sweaters, colorful leaves, expressions of gratitude, crisp air...I could go on and on! Rather than wax poetic though, how about I share a couple of projects instead, eh? Let's go!

My first card today pairs the new Bountiful Wreath set with the Harvest Home collection. I am so smitten with that gorgeous wreath! You could use it to frame a sentiment or a little scene like I did today.

First, I stamped the wreath using a bundle of fall colors. I used a sponge to add a bit of depth here and there. Betsy makes it so easy to create these incredible images with just a few simple impressions. Once my wreath was complete, I used the inner wreath die to cut the center from the image and set that panel aside.

Next, I added a little sponged and speckled sky to my card base before stamping the sentiment and grassy hill. I added a little white house to my scene. I just used two of the layers for the house, but there is a third if you want to add extra color.

I stitched a knit strip to the bottom of the wreath panel and tied on a twine bow before attaching that whole piece to my card base with foam tape. Then, I used a bit of Glossy Accents to embellish the berries in the wreath and give them a hint of shine. I can't wait to use this wreath again soon. It makes such a statement!

My second card uses the Harvest Home collection on its own. I love how many options Betsy included for building little scenes and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this set the second I saw it.

I used the barn this time to create a farmyard scene. I kept the stamping pretty simple to create a nice clean and simple design (though I did do a little sponging on the sky to add depth). I framed the scene with a pierced oval to give it a subtle border.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the set onto bold, bright red cardstock to tie into the color of the barn and then used one of the dies from the Sentiment Suite Collection to trim the ends and give them subtle points. I used that same bright red to mat my focal layer before attaching it to a kraft card base.

I love that Betsy included accessories like the windmill, hay bales, and fencing so that you could really customize your scenery. Those tiny hay bales are so cute!

Hi Lizzie! I’m super excited to be back on your blog again! Your cards are always BEAUTIFUL! You added so many pretty details on today’s projects , like your leaf sky, which is amazing! I’m so happy you’re on the Greetery team! 😊

DGolly said...

What great cards. Thanks for sharing!

Kathy Mc said...

Lizzie, you haven’t lost your creative talents in your remodel, that’s for sure. Both cards are phenomenal with so many added details from the sky to the field to the tucked in scene to the sentiment placement. I’m so impressed!

Mary W said...

I love the framed scene and how you have made crop rows in front of the house. Another use for the leaf stamp! Shows that by using a window, you are able to use portions of stamps to get the image you want, even if you don't own the particular stamp that fulfills your vision. So cool!

Valerie S said...
