Beautiful anemones

Happy Friday! Today I have three cards to show you that I made with the new Anemones die set from Spellbinders. I have the Magnolia set and the scripty font that goes with it and so when I saw that Yana had designed another set, they jumped into my cart before I could stop them!! ­čśĆ

For this first card, I tried something rather crazy. I cut the detail die out of foiled cardstock and again out of fun foam. I also ran the die through my machine with a piece of acetate. It did not cut out the detail, but it did press the shape into the acetate and I was then able to fussy cut the outer edge.
I glued the fun foam cutout and the cardstock cutout on each side of the acetate so that the petals made wells. Laying the die cut face down, I filled the petals with purple glitter and the flower centers with gold microbeads. I then placed a lighter purple cardstock shadow cutout on the back to seal in the glitter and microbeads.
I cannot really call this a shaker card as the elements don’t move in the wells, I made them full. But one can see that there is a dimensional element behind the acetate.

I completed the card by cutting a panel out of dark purple cardstock and cutting the anemone shadow shape out the center. I then embossed the panel before adhering it to a 5×7 inch cardbase. I inlayed the floral composition into the space in the cardpanel and completed the card with a sentiment from the coordinating script die set and a stamped word “friend”.

My second card is a lot simpler. I used the dark purple shadow piece that I cut out of the center of the cardpanel on my previous card and overlayed it with a white detail die cut. I added the floral spray onto a white cardpanel that was cut to 4×5.25 inches and embossed with a paint splatter embossing folder. I added a “hello” sentiment cut from a gold glitter washi sheet.

My final card is the simplest of them all. I created a white cardpanel that I embossed with a butterfly embossing folder from my stash. I added the words “hello beautiful” from the Wonderful Script die set. I love delicate word dies with shadows.
I have some more ideas whirling in my head for these die sets, so I am looking forward to another time when I can create with them.

  1. Monica, those dies jumped into the perfect cart! You have created pure magic with each one – and all so lovely. Those textures, shine, sparkle, dimension – all of it is beautiful! hugs, de

  2. It had to be an impulse of inspiration! Three unusual cards. Monica, and the first card is simply amazing. A wonderful glitter glow. I don't really understand how you did, but it looks like a million dollars.
