Introducing Anemone Blooms Collection by Yana Smakula

I’m very excited to introduce you to my new collection with Spellbinders called Anemone Blooms. Similar to the collection I did last year, Yana’s Blooms, I designed Anemone Blooms with elegant floral card-making in mind. The theme for this collection is Birthday and Friendships and all of the sentiments in this line center around that.

This is a smaller collection featuring just 5 products, some of which are dies and some glimmer plates. All of these work with my previously released products, especially Yana’s Blooms collection. So if you already have some of Yana’s Blooms and you pick up products from Anemone Blooms you can mix the products, especially the sentiments as the fonts and the sizes are exactly the same.

You can learn more in my video, watch it below or on my Youtube channel:


The main die in this collection is the Anemones die. It features a large floral cluster, very similar in style and size to the Magnolia Blooms released last year.

The Anemones die is designed in the same way, meaning you have the shadow die, and the outline and detail die. You can use these together or use just the outline alone without the shadow. My main idea for the shadow die was to have it cut from vellum for a very airy look and feel. Anemone die cut is large enough to fill an A2 card, it easily stands on its own, but you can also use several of these, 3 is the magic number to fill the entire background for an A2 card, which measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ in if you want to have a floral pattern on your project. Of course, if you make bigger cards, this die set works for that too, as again, it is pretty large.


Now, if you have a Hot Foil System, I also have this same design available in glimmer plate format. The Anemone Glimmer Blooms is a touch smaller and has additional baby breath images added to it. Baby’s Breath is a gorgeous bouquet filler, I love this plant in bouquets, it adds so much air and elegance, I just had to add it to my anemones.

The glimmer plate has a coordinating die allowing you to cut the cluster out. We’ve also included a die to cut word “Friend”. As with all other word dies in this collection, there’s a main die and a shadow die (you can see it on the card above).


Next, we have 3 sentiment sets. There is one die set and 2 glimmer sets. The die set, called Wonderful Script Sentiments features the same scripty font used in my previously released sentiments from the Yana’s Blooms collection.

These can be used alone, but have been specifically designed to be used with the glimmer set called Hello, Friend sentiments.

The glimmer set offers additional sentiments that pair well with the scripty words giving you multiple sentiment combination options, for example, For my Beautiful Friends, Hello Beautiful, You are Beautiful and Perfect, etc.


The last product in this collection is a set of sentiments I call “Inside card” sentiments. These are longer messages that can be put on the inside of the card. Some are a bit snaky, for example “I love knowing that no matter how much time passes, you’ll always be older”. But some are sweet and caring such as “Happy Birthday to the best friend anyone can ask for”.

You can use these on the inside of the card, but they also work well for the outside of the card too. Especially, if you have one anemone cluster, a scripty die cut or foiled word and one of these longer sentiments like you see on this card.

So that’s the look at my new Anemone Blooms collection with Spellbinders. This is my 4th collection and I think it is the best one yet. I’d love to hear what you think, I always appreciate your comments and feedback!
