Hello and welcome back to The Season! I am back with a project featuring our Anemone Border stamp and some of our sentiment dies.
Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!
I started off by white heat embossing this beautiful border image onto watercolor paper (Canson XL 140LB). Then I added Orchid and Prussian Blue Color Bursts using a wet in wet watercolor technique. For more tips and instruction on how I watercolored this project, be sure to watch the video as I have more detailed instruction there.
Once the florals were painted, I added Lamp Black color bursts to my background. Then I made sure to dry the panel before I started die cutting. For my sentiment, I used our Congratulations Scripty Word Die and the gorgeous die from our Bold Amazing Greetings Wordplate Die Collection. I cut the congrats on purple cardstock. For the “gorgeous”, I just die cut this directly onto my watercolor panel.
Next I adhered the painted panel onto a top folding A2 base. Then I glued all the inner pieces of the gorgeous die cuts onto the panel. Next I popped up all of the actual letters into their corresponding negative spaces. Then I added the congratulations die cut by putting tiny drops of adhesive to the bottom portion of the die cut. I adhered the congrats to the upper portion of the gorgeous popped up die cuts. This gave the congrats die cut a bit of support. Finally, I added our Clear Rhinestones to embellish my project.
That’s all from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Gorgeous! Beautiful colours especially the black. Love the popped up hidden die cut sentiment. x
this is really a beautiful card! thanks for sharing all the tips and tricks w the watercolor!
look forward to seeing more beautiful cards from you!
Wow, this is heavenly!
I love this card! I’ll agree with you that I was skeptical when you added the blue shade, but as you progressed it softened and made for a lovely combination. Very inventive to pop up the GORGEOUS and then raise the Congratulations by gluing it to the top of Gorgeous.
OH EFFIE, I think the colors came out WONDERFULLY! I LOVED watching the video! I also CAN’T WAIT to hear about how you set up your Color Burst Palette! TRULY A STUNNING CARD! LOVE the popped up sentiments too! (My husband thought your card was GREAT TOO! I HAD TO show him! LOL) 😉
Beautiful card. Love the dies and oh those flowers and coloring are so pretty. I love this stunning creative card.
This is such a great card! Wow!
