Hi everyone, it’s Lisa here again. I’m stopping by to share some of The Ton’s colorful Fresh Cut Anemones with you today. I love Anemones because they come in so many fun, cheerful colors. I think they are the perfect flowers to put on a card if you want to brighten up someones day.
- Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink, Pink Derby
- Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine
- Cali Blue, Cobalt Breeze, Parisian Blue
- Soft Garden, Deep Emerald, Bright Fern
- Noir (for the stamen centers)
(The little purple flower on the right was a surprise color. I intended to stamp it pink but there was some blue ink left on my stamp, surprise!)
Then I thought….wait….lets spread some cheer to the inside of this card too! So I stamped and diecut two more flowers. To avoid adding too much bulk to the inside, I stamped the leaf clusters directly onto the folded card base and glued the two diecut flowers in place.
To prepare the card front I blended a soft background for the flowers using The Ton’s Soft Garden and Blue Diamond inks. I stamped the sentiment from The Ton’s Thoughtful Poppies stamp set using Noir dye ink. I also added a little water to some Noir ink and flicked it with a paintbrush over the entire card front. Then I trimmed the edges and glued it to the center of the folded card base. This left a clean white border all around the edge of the card.
The flowers were added to the front of the card by first arranging them how I wanted them to look and then gluing all of the flowers and leaves together to form one piece. Then I popped the whole arrangement up on the card front using dimensional tape.
