Welcome friends! I’m here today with a card featuring one of the new releases from Spellbinders in The Painter’s Garden release. These dies are stunning and create life-like florals so simply. The design of the dies makes it seamless and simple for you.
Today I am using the Carolina Allspice dies and can’t believe how these flowers just came to life as I colored and worked with each layer.
There is slight embossing on each die that should be cut more than once with a “x2” or “x3” depending how many you’ll need to accomplish the intended look. For this die set, for each stem it suggests you die cut x2 sets of flowers. So I did that from white cardstock to create two stems and coordinating florals.
I did a simple Google search to find out the general color of these flowers and started playing around with copic colors. For the blooms I landed on R59, R37 and R35 with YG03 for the tips of some. I did color both sides of the cardstock because these are 3D and you do see both sides.
For the foliage I used E77 and E74 for the branch and a very odd combo of YG95 and YG03 for a base with G28 for shadows and blended back out with YG95. After it worked for the first leaf I just kept repeating it for both sets. There could very well be an easier combo to accomplish something similar. However, I do find it therapeutic to color die cuts like these where you have no lines to worry about.
The background panel is hot foiled with rose gold foil and the Geometric Diamond plate, then blended color in using the coordinating stencil set and Lawn Fawn dye inks.
I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from the I’ve Got You Covered stamp set. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out.
I adhered the foiled background to a card base and added the Carolina Allspice branches with foam squares. I popped the sentiment up the same way and my card is all finished. Isn’t it just beautiful!?! I love the shiny foiling with the 3D florals together. So much visual texture and interest.
