Just Mason Around - The Greetery

More Oopsie Daisies from The Greetery today, this time I paired them with the Just Mason Around jars.  
The jars are a three-step stamp using three shades of coordinating color and man, do they ever look real!  
I love mason jars and have owned a lot of sets but none quite like these beauties!

I used Altenew Tranquility inks in the first three colors for the jars.  Misty Morning, Cloudy Sky and Nimbus.

The eucalyptus used in these cards is from the Simple Things Stamp Set and Dies.

Give them a try, I think these are sets you will enjoy for a very long time!

Coffee On The Beach With Honey Bee Stamps

Anyone out there wish they were having coffee on the beach today?  Anyone wish they could go anywhere?  We've been home for months and months....  oh well, just more time to stamp, right?  

I combined my love of all things coffee with the new Hello Summer products from Honey Bee Stamps to create coffee on the beach. *Ü*


I used the Coffee Cup Card dies to create a shaker card.  The background inside the coffee cup and the sleeve are made with the Beach Vibes Patterned Paper.  The seashells and sentiment (WHICH I LOVE!!!) are from the Flippin' Fabulous stamp set and are colored with Copic markers.  I glued those to the background so they would stay put inside the shaker.  I used Honey Bee Stamps shaker beads in Coffee Tiny Bubbles and Tiny Diamonds. The flowers on the sleeve are made with the Tropical Bouquet Honey Cuts.






Products used: Coffee Cup Card Honey Cuts (dies), Beach Vibes Patterned Paper, Tropical Bouquets Honey Cuts, Flippin' Fabulous Stamp Set and Honey Cuts (dies).

Flippin' Fabulous Stamp Set and Honey Cuts


It's an actual card that opens so you can write on it too!

Friday Feature For Concord & 9th - Color Spectrum

Today is my final Friday Feature helping Concord & 9th kick off their beautiful new colors.  It's been so much fun celebrating with them and seeing all the gorgeous color combos people have been using.  Today we are showing off color spectrums!  


I've used  Buttercup, Stardust, Cranberry, Peacock, Oceanside and Aqua Sky.  The top color is just plain ivory, I needed another color, so I cheated - don't tell on me!  
The strips are mounted on a piece of Black cardstock and a White card base.


I used the Hey Bestie Bundle for my stamping -  I love little heart dies in the set!  I added a couple of rhinestone jewel stickers to fill in the space.


These little cuties are treat containers (actually I think they are condiment containers) from the grocery store. 
I filled them with matching color treats and made flowers using the Fresh Cut Floral Dies Edition 1.  I used Aqua Sky, Buttercup and Cranberry cardstocks.  
The leaves are Mushroom and the berries are Dove cardstocks.


Thank you Concord & 9th for allowing me to play along with you!

Suitcase and Floral Photo Prop

I made this small paper suitcase to use as a photo prop for some things I was working on.  I used the bottom suitcase from the Traveling Trio tutorial and just reduced the size.  I may be updating that tutorial to include this size because it is perfect for a set of four cards. ;-) 


The flowers are just sitting on the top, I needed to move them around for the photos, so I did not attach it.  They are made from several of my favorite floral dies that I use over and over and have listed here a hundred times - at least   but for my newer readers, I will add them again.


The rose is handmade from my own pattern.  The daisy is made with the Bundle of Flowers die.


The greenery is from the Timeless Foliage die at Spellbinders. 


The little metal handle on the suitcase was from Hobby Lobby and is their store brand.


The pure white flower is made from Layered Blooms die that is a Spellbinders die, but them seem to be out of it so I linked it to Amazon.

Gnome Brewed Cards by Jaded Blossom

I saw these coffee gnomes on Instagram and had to follow it back to where I could buy it.  I love these coffee gnomes!   Low and behold, it is from a company right here in Boise/Meridian area called Jaded Blossom.  So I contacted her, ordered them and got them the next day, almost as good as instant gratification.


I did a small area of ink blending with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and stamped a few coffee beans.  I colored the images and beans with Copic Markers. The bottom sentiment is embossed in white.

This card used the Coffee Stain Stencil for the background as well as a few stamped and colored coffee beans.  The sentiment is embossed in white and the gnomes colored with Copic Markers.

The Greetery - Oopsie Daisy Bundle

Today I have something brand new to share - I am now an affiliate for The Greetery!  I absolutely love Betsy's creations and I am so happy to be able to share them with all of you!  Remember the cake I made?  That was from The Greetery also!

These cards use the Oopsie Daisy Stamp Set and Oopsie Daisy Dies as well as the Brick Layer Die - which I am loving and have a lot of ideas for!


I've stamped out a bunch of daisies and I also tucked in a couple branches of eucalyptus from the  Simple Things Stamp Set and Dies.  Oh how I love these eucalyptus branches!!  
I stacked the stems, trimmed some of the greenery and added the stamp and cut image that looks like they are tied up with twine.  Then I slid the tiny sentiment in there.







Simple Things Stamp Set and Dies


Super easy and elegant - I hope you check out The Greetery if you have never been...but be careful, you might need it all. *Ü*
