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.
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.
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.
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.
For her next card, Eunji created a bouquet of pink Fresh Cut Anemones and added additional watercolored details for great interest.
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 Board.
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 Board.
Next up is Laura Jane’s bright red Fresh Cut Anemone card. She created a pretty centerpiece with our new layered set.
Lisa also created a beautiful Anemone arrangement with our Fresh Cut Anemones.
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 Board.
Next up is Eunji’s beautiful floral watercolor card created with our Fresh Cut Anemones Coordinating Outline set.
Mayline created a beautiful watercolored arrangement of bright anemones using the Coordinating Outline set.
Emily paired our Anemone and Garden Rose outline sets to create a soft and beautiful arrangement of watercolor florals.
Janette’s card features our Anemone bouquet against a contrasting and glittery accented background to make her floral bouquet pop.
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 Board.
For Mayline’s next project, she created another crimson anemone bouquet but contrasted her florals against a bright blue background.
For Jenny’s next card, she created gorgeous purple Anemone Bouquet.
Next up is Brenda’s beautifully colored Anemone Bouquet card accented with a vellum sentiment piece.
Next up is TaeEun’s white embossed Anemone Bouquet card which is popped up against a subtle background stamped with our Anemone Wishes.
Next up is Eunji’s beautiful watercolored Anemone Bouquet card.
For Vera’s next card, she beautifully colored our Anemone Bouquet a bright blue and added a vellum vase.
For Anna’s next card, she did some no line watercoloring using our Anemone Bouquet.
Jenny created a watercolored crimson Anemone Wishes cluster card for her next project.
Tae Eun featured our Anemone Wishes set with some beautiful no line watercoloring.
For my next card, I heat embossed the Anemone Wishes cluster stamp and watercolored the florals using Color Burst powders (Orchid/Indigo and Alizarin Crimson/Gamboge). I trimmed my panel and added strips of gold glitter to my cardbase and adhered my watercolored panels onto the base. Lastly, I embellished my cards with our Seaglass Blue and Clear Dew Drops. For this photo, I used our White Brick Backdrop Board.
Last but not least is Janette’s beautifully watercolored crimson Anemone Wishes card.
