Our Craft-A-Flower die sets are released monthly and celebrate the beauty of a wide variety of flowers! Each set includes all the pieces you need to create a multi-layered floral arrangement, inspired by our popular 3D flower dies. All you need is colored cardstock and a die-cutting machine. We can’t wait to see what you create!

This month we are releasing Craft-a-Flower: Anemone Layering Die Set!

Wait till you see how to use this gorgeous set; it is another stunner by Altenew! But first, here is the layering guide for your convenience.

CAF Anemone Guide


Altenew CAF Anemone Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I started by die cutting all the die-cuts from the 9×12 Watercolor Cardstock. To color the flower, I used the Ultramarine and Ultraviolet Watercolor Brush Marker Refills. You can watch the video at the end of this post to see how I colored the layers in two tones. I used the same two colors for all the layers, just changed the concentration. For the leaves, I used Jet Black Watercolor Brush Marker. The same pigment was used to color the flower centers.

For my arrangement, I took our extra die-cut of the topmost layer of the leaf. I also used Silver Glitter Tape to make my own glitter cardstock and die cut more leaves out of it for interest.

First, I added black paint splatters to my background. Then, I adhered the florals with foam tape and tucked in the leaves with glue. It is at this point I decided to add something silver, and I die cut those skeleton leaves, aka the topmost leaf layer.

For additional sparkle, I added Sterling Silver Watercolor from the 14 Pan Metallic Watercolor Pan Set, and I popped up the sentiment. To finish off, I adhered a few sequins.

It would be SO much easier to keep my pocketbook full if y’all would not keep creating such beautiful crafts that I cannot live without. My poor husband is gonna have to get another job to keep funding my crafts.
