Just a post today celebrating Betsy Veldman's new shop, the Greetery.
Her first release is over the top wonderful, and I was fortunate to purchase
some of my favorites the first night. I say some, because there are a few more
in my cart and on my wishlist, because the some ran out. While
I'm overjoyed for Betsy, I'm longing for more. Honestly loved every one!
I've been playing with Botanicuts Succulents and a new to me watercolor/ink set
from Ecoline. Dawn McVey used them during the release, and the intensity caught
my eye. They are indeed bright, and mix well with water. I cut my petals from
watercolor cardstock (Arches Coldpress). Like I said, first time using these, and
they did take a bit getting used to.
Betsy's Terrarium die is just the most clever most versatile piece in the bunch!
So excited to have it, and cut it in several pieces of shimmer cardstock.
The terrarium can be separated so that the back is solid, while the front wire can be
anything from a window to a shaker. I added some real sand to my terrarium
before tucking in my 3 succulents.
A snippet of macrame finished the top.
Other Greetery products: Comforting Commands, & Fleur Impressions.
Each sentiment from Comforting Commands fits nicely in the top of
the terrarium, and I plan to do a set of these for a friend at church.
Beginning to see the Greetery on Pinterest and Instagram. Guess I'm
not the only fan!
Have a great weekend. Hope it's crafty!
