Hello Crafters! It’s Melody Rupple here and I’m excited to be on the blog today to share a few cards I have created with the new Fresh Picked Collection. I love the modern, contemporary feel of this collection.
The Fresh Picked Collection includes 4 floral dies, a sentiment die set, and an embossing folder. I have created three cards with the collection. So let’s get started.
My first card features the Fresh Picked Anemones Etched Dies. You can create four different Anemones with the die set and you can use them separately or together for different looks. I die-cut the flowers from Pink Sand, Dahlia, and Wild Berry Cardstocks and used Peridot and Rainforest Cardstocks for the stems. For the center of each flower, I used Onyx and Gold Mirror.
I die-cut one of the sentiments from the Fresh Picked Sentiments Etched Dies from Mirror Gold Cardstock and two more times from white cardstock. Then I layered the three die cuts on top of each other. This gives the sentiment more dimension. I finished off with a few Gold Mix Color Essentials Gems.
Here is a look at the Fresh Picked Daffodils Etched Dies. Here I chose to cut the flowers from white cardstock and then blend yellow inks. I used Fern Cardstock for the greenery and blended ink on the edges of the leaves. I die-cut the sentiment from Waterfall Cardstock and added a shadow of Mirror Gold Cardstock.
Here is a closer look at the background. All the card fronts are embossed with Columns Embossing Folder.
My final project features the Fresh Picked Berries Etched Dies. I chose to use all the dies in the set to cover the whole card front. I used Glacier, Raindrop, Cosmic Sky, and Sunkissed cardstocks for the berries and added Spectrum AB Color Essentials Gems to the tops of the berries.
