New Release: Simple Freesias

Freesias are beautiful flowers that come in a wonderful range of colours, making them ideal for card makers who like to personalise their creations. This set contains two flower images - one is a small cluster of blooms and the other is two fully laden stalks - along with seven sentiment stamps that will have you covered for almost any occasion.

Simply Freesias

Now, it wouldn't be a new release without some gorgeous inspiration from my designers, and they have certainly risen to the challenge with these beauties...

Petra created these two beautiful cards in tones of gold and bronze. The freesias in the top image have been heat embossed with white embossing powder and then coloured with rich earth tones for a spectacular result. The second card has a wonderful negative panel where the flowers aren't coloured at all. On either side of the panel, Petra has used the no-line technique with gorgeous golden hues.

The three cards below were also completed by Petra, who has used neutral tones to great effect. It just goes to show that you don't always need to bring out coloured pencils and makers to achieve stunning results.

Carla's gorgeous cards bring springtime gardens to mind, filled with perfumed flowers and pretty little butterflies. She has stamped and coloured the images in purple, then layered them over beautiful die cut and embossed panels for extra depth and interest. The yellow butterflies work as a lovely contrast to the purple shades in the flowers.

Anesha has used the larger stamp and the birthday greeting to create her fabulous card. She has coloured the flowers in shades of yellow with a deep orange throat. The darker colour adds depth to the image and creates the illusion of shadow.

Fabulous new stamp set and wonderful inspiration. I love freesias. When I was a student, I would often buy them, because they were cheap, pretty and filled my student digs with a delightful fragrence, and they would keep long as well. I had hot pink freesias in my bridal bouques when I married my current husband to match the pink in my wedding outfit.
