Anemones & Butterfly

Hi peeps. How’s it going? Vera here today and I have a couple fun cards to share.

First up is a card I made using Trio Anemone Cluster Layering Dies.

For this card, I started by die-cutting all the Anemone layers from watercolor cardstock, except for the top layer, which I cut from black cardstock. Then, I watercolor the two bottom layer with different intensity and let them dry. Once dry, adhere all the pieces together and put aside.

Next, I work on the background. I watercolor the background, let dry and stamp the Peony Terrace Background with Blue Diamond ink pad.

Before adhering the background panel to the card base, I added a wide strip of black cardstock behind it. Then arrange all the flowers and adhere with foam adhesive. For the sentiment I stamped and heat embossed sentiment from Modern Labels.

Somehow at the end, I feel like the card have that old school look. Maybe because of the color combo that I used? Or maybe it just my imagination. Hah!!

Since I was in the mood of creating, I ended up making another card. This time using my favorite dies, the Monarch Butterfly dies.

Well, since I was in the mood to create, I ended up making another card. This time using my favorite, the Monarch Butterfly Coverplate dies.

I simply did alcohol ink on yupo paper for the background and while it still kind of wet, I laid gold foil paper on it. If you check my Instagram post, I had a little clip showing the shiny foil. I then laid the framed butterfly on top of it. For the sentiment, I used an upcoming alphabet dies that coming soon. I can tell you, I am in love with this dies set. I know, it such a tease, but trust me, it will be worth the wait!!

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. I hope you enjoy today’s inspirations and may your weekend starts off wonderfully! Cheers….
