Extra petals become buds for a spring greeting featuring the new Clara Blooms and Solid Core 6x6 Collections. They're arranged on a gold-speckled background created to match the new Black Circle Thank You Foil Greeting Tabs.  Hi, Jean here with a floral Friday idea to start your weekend.

(The new Thank You Foil Greetings Black Circle Tabs are already pre-cut and ready to attach - the Circle Basics set shown above is used to cut a large background circle.)

Cut Clara Blooms from two shades of peachy-pink Blush Collection 6x6's.  Cut the centers from black cardstock.  Assemble two large and one medium blossom.  Trim the petals of the extra blossom to create buds.

Ciut Backyard Floral Stems from a medium-green 6x6 in the new Greenery Collection.  

Glue two pieces of white cardstock together for dimension and diecut them with the second-largest Circle Basics die.  Trim about ½" from one side with the largest Square Basics die for a crisp, smooth edge.  Add a few dotty specks of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  Air-dry it for a few minutes, then finish it off with a heat-tool.  Attach it to a top-folded white A2 card.

Anemone Bird House
by Trina Pham

IMG_4946

Hello everyone.  It may be Valentine’s Day, but my card is not. 😂   I have a simple card with all the spring feels to share today using  Anemone Blooms and Elegant Anemone dies from the Anemone collection with the Woodgrain Bird House and Leaf Bunches  dies from the 2023 Christmas collection.  

All pieces were die cut from white cardstock paper and ink blended with dye inks using blending brushes.  Wilted Violet and Stormy Sky distress inks (DI) were used for the anemone flowers, Black Soot DI was used for shading on the bird house and two gradient green color dye inks from Altenew were used for the leaf bunches. 

IMG_4958

Trimmed a 3/8” strip from white woodgrain paper for the bird house post and added shading to it as well using Black Soot DI.  Lightly ink blended Milled Lavender DI to the bottom of an A2 size Bristol panel before assembling the card onto a white card base.  I was going to leave the card blank, but went digging in my bits bag and found this Poppy Stamp gold foil Modest Greetings 1 sentiment that works nicely for many occasions.  

IMG_4959

Well, that does it for my card.  Get ready for a brand new release tomorrow.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

From Bud to Blossom by Jean Okimoto

P1030655

Balance the bold dimensions of the beautiful Anemone Bloom with a slimline card and a simple greeting from the January Anemone Collection.  Soft blues can be frosty winter pastels - or in anticipation of spring - just 5 weeks away!  Hi, Jean here with a simple  thank you card from our latest release.

P1030685

Cut Anemone Bloom from a light blue 6x6 in the Ocean Blue Collection.  Color the stamens with Morning Mist VersaFine Clair - we're using just the two larger pieces here.  Color the sepal with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Set them aside to dry.

Cut white cardstock with the die from the Vintage Tray 3D Embossing Folder and Die Set. We're using just 2 of the diecuts here - save the others for another project.  The tray's diecuts are perfectly-sized for several of the new rub ons.  

Cut the bud from the new White Anemone Rub Ons - leave a generous border around the design.  Carefully remove the paper liner.  Gently tap the design onto the small rectangle diecut. Place it between two layers of printer paper and run it through your diecut machine to burnish the bud onto the cardstock. (The rub ons set (2 sheets) includes a wood craft stick to burnish the designs if a diecut machine isn't available.)  Carefully remove the frosty plastic layer.

Back to the anemone...assemble the blossom.  Attach it to the larger white rectangle diecut - use foam tape between the petals for shadowy dimension.

Glue two pieces of the same Ocean Blue 6x6 together for dimension and cut the Thank You Debut Script background.  Cut the delicate top layer from white cardstock.  Assemble the greeting.

P1030667

Attach the diecuts to a blue slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - use foam tape for the greeting.  Add blue Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting - Happy Valentine's Day to everyone celebrating tomorrow!

Anemone Card and Envelope
by Anne Thompson

Need a card at the last minute?  Have some of the White Anemone Rub-Ons?  Make a card and envelope like this!

IMG_2850 (1)

I made cards like this yesterday with a group at the senior center here in town.  

These are the materials we used.

IMG_2849 (1)

  • Choose one of the plaid papers from ANEMONE PLAID PP1025.
  • Trim it to 4 X 5 1/4.
  • Add it to the front of an A2 top-fold note card.
  • Cut a piece of white card stock 3 X 4 1/4.
  • Select one of the stemmed anemones from WHITE ANEMONE RUB ONS RUB103.
  • Apply it to the white card stock using the stick provided.
  • Add VersaFine Clair Warm Breeze ink around the edges using a fingertip dauber.
  • Add that panel to the note card.

IMG_2851 (1)

I always like to bring some element from the front of the card to the inside.  We took the piece we cut from the background panel and cut it in half to make two 1" strips.  We added one to the inside of the card along with a smaller Anemone blossom.

0-8 (1)

I also like to add something to the envelope that hints about what's inside.  We added the other strip of paper and one or two more Anemone blossoms or buds to the envelope as well.

0-9 (1)

And that's it.  We chose to use our cards as valentines and added stamped valentine messages inside and out on the note card.  A card like this can be used for so many occasions.

Happy Crafting!  And Happy Valentines Day later this week!

3D Embossed Anemone Collage by Jean Okimoto

P1030239

Inky highlights call attention to the details of the new Anemone Drift 3D Embossing Folder and Die Set.  Remember way back when pressure embossing meant a hand-embossing with a lightbox and stylus?   Thank goodness for embossing folders that make it so easy to create cards now! Hi, Jean here with another design from our January Anemone Collection.

Trim a light blue/lavender 6x6 from the Twilight Purple Collection to about 5" x 6" and spritz both sides with a light mist of water.  Emboss it with the Anemone Drift 3D Embossing Folder.  

P1030273

Highlight the design with inks - shaded lilac and mowed lawn Distress Oxides were used here.  Dry the inks, then cut the tray usng the  die from the Vintage Tray set.  

Cut the tray again from a light blue 6x6 from the Ocean Blue pack. We're using just the frame here - I inked the woodgrain diecuts for another project.  Attach it to a  pale lavender A2 card.  Add the embossed/inked anemone pieces.

Cut two backgrounds from Hello Debut Script set and glue them together for dimension. Cut the  detailed top layer from a dark blue Stormy Blue 6x6.  Assemble the greeting.

P1030257

Attach everything to a light lavender A2 card.  Add blue Bright Jewels.

Thanks for visiting!

Greetings
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_7856

Hi everyone, today's card features more new products from the new 2024 January Anemone release.  I decided to use the Anemone Bloom as my focal point for my card.

The anemone was die cut from white cardstock and I used Distress Inks to add color to the images.  

Flower: Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks

Leaves: Peeled Paint Distress Ink

Flower Centers: Black Soot Distress Ink

I glued the anemone together and put it aside while I worked on the card background.

IMG_7858

I dry embossed cream cardstock using the Anemone Drift 3D embossing folder.  This was glued to a black cardstock mat and then adhered to a cream woodgrain card base.

Using a circle layer die, I die cut a circle from the Anemone Plaid paper pad and glued it to the card.  

Next, I used foam tape to adhere the Anemone Bloom to the card and spattered it with gold ink.

The word "Greetings" was die cut from gold metallic cardstock and the shadow from black cardstock.  I glued the word to the black shadow die cut and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

IMG_7857

To add some interest to the card, I finished by adding some black embellishments to it.

Thanks foe stopping by today and have a great week!

Anemone Bud Duo Thank You
by Anne Thompson

I love all of the anemones in the January 2024 Anemone Collection (here), and I especially loved putting the Anemone Bud Duo together for this thank you card.

0-1 (1)
materials used

0-3 (1)

  • die cut the Anemone Bud Duo from white card stock
  • use the fingertip daubers to blend two green inks onto the stem, leaves, and other parts of the buds as shown on the envelope
  • use another dauber to blend pink ink onto the bud where the yellow is on the envelope image
  • assemble the flower spray using a glue pen

0-2 (1)

  • select a dark green plaid from the Anemone Plaid 6 X 6 paper pad, trim it to 4 X 5 1/4 and add it to the front of a white note card

0-4 (1)

  • die cut the Thank You Debut Script background from white card stock
  • use a fingertip dauber to add some light green ink around the edges
  • die cut the detailed lettering from a scrap of the plaid that you chose for the background on the card front
  • assemble the greeting using a glue pen

0-1 (1)

  • assemble the card front by adding the Anemone Bud Duo using foam dimensional dots under the buds
  • glue the bottom of the stem in place
  • add the sentiment at the bottom right

And there you have it!  A lovely thank you card to send any time!  I really like the simplicity of this card but it would be easy to fancy it up with a doily behind the Anemone Buds or another die cut shape from a white or colored card stock or even a paper from the Anemone Grove PP1026 paper pad.  I'm sure you can think of lots of ways to start with this design and make it your own.  

The lovely products in this collection give me hope for that early spring promised by the groundhog the other day!

Happy Crafting!

Hugs Anemone Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_7852

Good morning everyone!  I have another card featuring the new Anemone release.

I started by dry embossing navy blue cardstock using the new 3D Anemone Drift embossing folder.  Next, I lightly rubbed a white pigment ink pad across the embossed cardstock to highlight the flowers.  I cut the embossed panel at an angle and adhered it to a A2 white card base.

I cut a thin strip of gold metallic cardstock and glued it next to the embossed layer.

The anemones and leaves were all cut from white cardstock and inked with Distress Ink.

Flowers: Squeezed Lemon and Wild Honey Distress Inks were used

Leaves: Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Inks were used

Flower Centers: Black Soot Distress Ink

IMG_7854

I glued the flowers together and adhered them to the card along with the leaves.

Next, I spattered gold ink on the top half of the card.

IMG_7853 (1)

To finish the card, I die cut the word "hugs" from metallic gold cardstock and glued it to a white cardstock shadow die cut.  

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by!

Send special hugs with layered anemones from our latest collection.  It can be a Valentine design, friendship card or note of encouragement.  Hi, Jean here with a mix of stashed favorites and three new die sets from our January Anemone Collection. The Garland 6x6 set of seasonal florals includes a print to pair with our latest designs.

Cut the anemone print with the largest Double Stitch Happy Heart Cut Out die.  The stitches are part of the die's outline - we're using just the heart insert here.

Cut Anemone Blooms from peach cardstock - cut an extra stamen.  Color the stamens with a black marker and set them aside to dry.  Assemble the blossoms - add the extra stamen to the "closed" anemone.

Cut the sepals and leaves of the Anemone Bud Duo set from green cardstock.  Attach the sepals to the anemones.  Remove one of the larger leaves. Attach the anemones and leaves to the heart - use foam tape for the top halves of the flowers.

Glue two pieces of natural cardstock together for dimension and cut the solid Hugs Debut Script background.  Prep the detailed die by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper - it'll help release the delicate diecut.  Cut the greeting from peach cardstock.

Attach the diecuts to a side-folded natural A2 card - use foam tape for the greeting.  Trim the corners with a corner rounding punch.  Add lime green Bright Jewels.  Cut an A2-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting our blog...have a great weekend!
