Hi there! I hope you’re all staying well. One of the joys of being on maternity leave is that I have a bit extra time (such as it is) to just play. I have been a fan of Betsy Veldman’s creativity and beautiful products almost since I started stamping, so I was super excited when she started her own company- The Greetery. I fell in love with the Balloon Bouquet stamp set and many of the other birthday products from the first anniversary release, and I actually had a few minutes to create a pair of cards with them. Let’s get started with the details!
For these projects, I used a pretty berry, fuchsia, melon, and dove gray color scheme, a bit more subtle version of my favorite “fiesta” color combination. I stamped the large balloon from Balloon Bouquet using inks from Pinkfresh Studio (I’ll link them below), then stamped two different greetings on each one using Altenew Obsidian Black ink to get a nice, crisp sentiment.
For the first card, I stamped the Window Pane Plaid background in a pale gray, then added some streamers cut using the Twisted Crepe dies. I also die cut a few extra balloons using the Big Balloons dies and used blending brushes to blend color around the edges.
I added a few stamped floral bouquets to the balloon cluster, then finished the card off with some sparkling gems!
I used the same inks and color scheme for the second project, but I used the beautiful Pinwheel Party Stencils to create a festive background. I again added some streamers from the Twisted Crepe dies and ink blended balloons.
Some more gems added sparkle!
Well, that’s all for these projects. The stamps and dies from The Greetery are absolutely amazing, so if you haven’t checked them out, I highly encourage you to do so! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a marvelous day!
