The Greetery Leaves all Around many occasions card


Hello everyone - I hope you are well and happy! The weeks have passed very quickly and it is time to welcome you to another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More.

This time we would love to see your creations using die cuts and stencils and I came up with this card. 

I'm so pleased that SevenHills Crafts now stocks products from The Greetery. I've loved Betsy Veldman's designs from way back when she began designing for Papertrey Ink and it's great to be able to get them over here now. I used my new  Leaves All Around die and the matching layered stencils to create this one and I loved using them. I really need to work on my colouring skills but the stencils make it so easy - I just used different shades of ink and then added a few veins with a coloured pencil. I made the berries into grapes for this card but they could be red ones for Christmas or could even be flower blossoms like wisteria etc. I cut the die several times so I could stack it to give dimension and it left the perfect space for the sentiment lovely from Hello Bluebird which can be used for many different occasions depending on what you stamp inside.

I hope you will join us this time and you will find lots of inspiration over on the ATSM blog.

I'd like to play along at

This is an absolute standout in the line-up of DT cards on the ATSM challenge blog, Carol! I agree with you about Betsy and most of the time I now recognize The Greetery stamps at a glance, which is a compliment to them. You did a brilliant job with this design and I thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

Fantastic card and your colouring is perfect, I'm not so good at it which is why I love matching stencils. You did an amazing job and I love that gorgeous sentiment.
