Yellow Anemones

Spellbinders |Lisa Horton Spotlight Frames & Florals Collection

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing a sunny card made with the new Layered Anemone dies from the “Lisa Horton Spotlight Frames & Florals Collection” over at Spellbinders.  

I absolutely love layered flower dies because they provide so much dimension to the flowers and really make them pop on a card. 

I realized I hadn’t really done much lately with yellow, so I decided to make my anemones a sunny but soft yellow and orange.  I used watercolor card stock and my Karin markers to add color to the petals – concentrating the darker orange toward the center.

After assembling and arranging my flowers, I framed them with a scalloped label die cut (created using 2 of the dies from the Scalloped Labels and Tags die set).  I love the scalloped bottom to the frame and thought it went well with the curves of the flower petals.  

I accented the card with a foiled sentiment that I created using gold foil and a few smooth gold gems for added shine. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you like this card and that it inspires you to try out layered floral dies.

I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

    So you cut 2 different sizes of the label tag die and used both. Am I correct? Beautiful card!

      Thank you! Yes, I used two different sizes and nested them together and ran them through my direct machine together (at the same time). I love the nesting shape dies like this because you can create frames of different thicknesses depending on your project. So fun! And a great way to get more use out of simple shapes!

    This is so bright and cheerful! I love the detail on the petals and the curve of the frame that’s perfect with this design.

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
