It's just me popping in with this week's Ink to Paper/Papertrey Ink Flash Sale! Last week I shared THESE cards with a fun color combination! Today I'm using a new color combination paired with some stamps and dies from last year! I really enjoy trying new color combinations, especially since I always seem to reach for the same colors over and over again! ha ha! So....for today's FLASH SALE, the following items that I used on today's cards are ON SALE! They will be on sale until Wednesday at 12 noon!
I made two cards using these fabulous products; one horizontal and one vertical! The two sentiments from the Many Anemones stamp set work perfectly in the Geometrix: Hexagon! I heat embossed them in white onto the Dark Indigo Hexagons!
I also used the Banner Builder Basics to die cut the banners. I used the small sentiments in the Frame It Out: Wishes stamp set to accent the larger embossed sentiments. I love using these banners to add interest to the sentiments and highlight them in a special way!
I love how versatile the Many Anemones die collection is; you can use the outline by itself or add it over the top of the stamped images like I have done here! I stamped each of the three images using black ink and then used the other 2 steps to add the color.
I used Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet ink to bring these flowers to life! I think Anemones are such beautiful and unique flowers! I stamped the leaves in Simply Chartreuse ink and then added in the detail image using Ripe Avocado.
I added a row of zig-zag machine stitching to the bottom of this design for some added detail and texture!
I kept one of the Anemones peeking from behind the sentiment panel, which is something I don't usually do, but I really like how it turned out!
I also added some partial shading to the Sweet Blush portions of the flowers by adding some Berry Sorbet ink using a finger sponge dauber. It really helped create the balance in the flowers I was hoping for!
These cards were so much fun to create! I haven't used the Many Anemones stamp set for a long time! You can see the last card I made with it HERE! I did some emboss/resist with watercolors and then added in some of the outline dies like I did on today's cards! Thanks for fluttering by!
