Bottling Up Autumn's Beauty with The Greetery

Good morning, friends, and welcome back to another release intro day for The Greetery's August lineup (the new products will be available on Friday, August 23rd on The Greetery's website)! First off, thank you all so much for your kind words yesterday. I'm still working from a temporary set up and I feel a little rusty, so your sweet messages were very much appreciated.

I'm back today to introduce a few new fabulous products coming soon that are sure to become staples in your crafty collection. The new Mason Jar Fillers Stencils are a must have to give you even more possibilities with the Just Mason Around set. And the Budding Beauties: Autumn images are perfect for creating stunning seasonal arrangements.

I began this card by watercoloring a bit of a ground on a watercolor panel and then stenciled the new foliage image. I added a Just Mason Around jar and filled it with sprigs of seasonal botanicals from Budding Beauties: Autumn.

The sentiment comes from Sentiment Suite: Thank You. I'm sure this is a set I'll turn to again and again. Thank you cards are one of my most needed categories and I can always use new greetings to convey my appreciation.

I attached the focal panel to a wine-colored card base to help tie together the berries and the twine on the jar. That peek of the base around the very edge of the panel is just enough.

My second card today incorporates those same botanicals from Budding Beauties, but this time I paired them with the new Bottled Up stamps. I truly love these bottles! I can see pairing them with the jar for a homespun pantry feel or giving them a spooky, potion vibe for a Halloween card. Cute!

I began by die cutting the Halfsies shapes, using Post-it tape to keep them together while I stamped the plaid background (just connect them on the back, easy). I blended those pieces with ink to give them a warm, autumnal feel and attached them to a neutral card base.

I stamped the bottles and botanicals, opting to fill only one of the bottles to keep things from getting too busy. The other bottle I simply adorned with the string detail from the set.

For the greeting, I stamped a bottle label with a message from the Bottled Up set. I chose a birthday sentiment, but there are all sorts of useful options. I'm so happy with the warm tones in this card. I can't wait to give it to someone special!

Lizzie, your temporary setup has not hindered your card making in the least bit. Both of these cards are beautful and love how you added the second bottle and left it empty. Your plaid background really makes your vintage bottles pop. The touches of Scarlet Jewel and narrow edge really ties together beautifully.

Your cards have such a great impact - I automatically thought about autumn weather, the smell of smoke from neighbor's fireplaces and the crisp cool mornings. Your cards are the perfect colors and flowers to invoke those thoughts! Thank you for that brief respite from the awful southern heat!
