Now onto the main part of our release!

I was so excited to finally create a layered anemone set (that I was completely satisfied with) for this release.  When Emily first joined the team, she put in the request for anemones. I put it off since then but finally decided to try my best at creating it for this release. This was a bit of a doozy because of the intricate details of the actual flower.  After many, many, many hours, Fresh Cut Anemones was completed!

I couldn’t release the layered anemone set without the coordinating outline set! This set features five outline images that you can color to create your own gorgeous anemone arrangments.


Fresh Cut Anemone Coordinating Dies (for layered and outline sets)

I also designed a beautiful bouquet arrangement for our anemones that was different from our usual clustered floral arrangements.  This set comes with 13 sentiments in a classic typewriter font.

Our Anemone Wishes features a large anemone cluster stamp that does away with the need for any masking. Just stamp and color away!

Last but not least for today is our Penned Sentiment set which features 19 versatile sentiments for many occasions.

Now that you’ve seen all the stamps for today, please enjoy the gallery of truly amazing inspiration by our team. You can visit each team member’s blog for more details on each beautiful project.


First up is Laura Jane’s card created with our GWP Watercolor Bouquet. She selectively colored her stamp to get this gorgeous partially watercolored effect. 18839806_1792425491071195_7598676797034037741_o

Next up is Mayline’s gorgeously watercolored card created with our Watercolor Bouquet GWP. She heat embossed the stamp with our Rose Gold embossing powder and chose bright watercolors for her floral images.


TaeEun created a beautiful centerpiece of Fresh Cut Anemones in contrasting shades of purples, reds and pinks.


Eunji created a beautiful collage of Fresh Cut Anemones. She created an amazing contrast with her gray and blue shading created with the second and third layer stamps. 18673102_1336114616486932_8333672453990579510_o

Anna’s next card is a masked masterpiece where she created a partial background of Fresh Cut Anemones in soft huesfc anem red

Next up is my card created with our Fresh Cut Anemones. I stamped the florals in our Ruby Collection Inks and Crystal Garden Collection Inks (for the foliage). Next I blended Caribbean Turquoise Dye Ink onto two opposing corners on a white card panel using a stencil brush. Then I arranged the florals and popped them up with foam tape. I heat embossed the sentiment in gold powder and then embellished my card with our Dew Drops. For this photo, I used our Peach Marble Backdrop Boardfc anem collage

For my second card today, I created a collage of Fresh Cut Anemones.  I had stamped and cut out a lot of anemones for my first card so I used the extra pieces to create this project.  I adhered all the florals directly onto a card panel. Then I added stitching to the edges of the panel with our Double Stitched Rectangles (large) die set with the largest die. The sentiment is from a set that will be debuted later this week. Lastly, I embellished my card with our Dew Drops. For this photo, I used our Smooth White Wood Backdrop Board18738716_1261381080626274_6903737356285389798_o

Next up is Laura Jane’s bright red Fresh Cut Anemone card. She created a pretty centerpiece with our new layered set. 18891421_10209126088773645_6642378441215259792_o

Lisa also created a beautiful Anemone arrangement with our Fresh Cut Anemones. fc anem hum

For my next card, I created a corner arrangement with our Fresh Cut Anemones. I added our Hello Hummingbird to accent the florals. The florals were stamped with our Ruby, Amethyst and Orchid Collection Inks.  The smaller orchid bud was additionally stamped with our Plum Wine Dye ink because I wanted to create more contrast with my florals. My bird was stamped using our Cocoa, Minted and Ruby Collection inks. For my background, I used our Geometric Lattice die. Prior to adhering it onto a cardbase, I adhered some of our Glossy Fine Transparent adhesive paper behind the lattice die cut for some glittery interest. For this photo, I used our Peach Marble Backdrop Board18623665_1336114583153602_7682335763133486743_o

For my next card, I watercolored our Anemone Bouquet with zig markers (Peach Pink and May Green) and did some partial die cutting to get the vase and floral cluster cut out in one piece. I blended Caribbean Turquoise Dye Ink onto a card panel and splattered some gray watercolor for effect. Then I stamped the sentiment from our Anemone Wishes with our Noir Dye Ink. Lastly I popped up the bouquet with foam tape and added our clear dew drops.  For this photo, I used our White Marble Backdrop Board18922672_1792425501071194_9109935093260422685_o
