Good morning and happy Friday! Only SEVEN more sleeps before Santa will come – are your kids ready? Are…YOU ready!? My list has been whittling down – I actually DID mail everything that needs to be mailed. This might be a minor miracle. Or…a major one for me! 😉
If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂
I love hydrangeas! A lot! So – when I saw the gorgeous Hydrangea Hill Suite in the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog (which goes LIVE on 5 Jan 2021 for customers!) I was super excited! When I got them – I pulled them out and this is the first card I’ve made using the Hydrangea Hill DSP and the Hydrangea Haven stamp set – which will be bundled with the stunning Hydrangea Dies. And I made it all into a super easy fun fold card. Take a look-see:
I started with the basic fun-fold card pieces. I cut a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock and scored and folded it at 5 1/2″ to make the larger part of the card. Then I cut a 3″ x 8 1/2″ piece, folding it at 4 1/4″ to make the mini-card!
I matted a large piece of Hydrangea Hill DSP on Highland Heather and adhered it to the larger card “front” with Liquid Glue. A smaller panel – same DSP pack, different design – also matted on Highland Heather is on the smaller flap of the big card.
For the small card, I stamped a sentiment from Hydrangea Haven in Misty Moonlight on a piece of Whisper White and matted the panel on Highland Heather. Then I made a hydrangea!
On another piece of Whisper White, I used Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather ink to stamp the small flower-fill image from Hydrangea Haven in a large circle (just bigger than the round flower die in the Hydrangea Dies set). With both colors, I inked and stamped off once on scrap paper before stamping my cardstock twice (without re-inking).
Then I cut the area out with that die.
I used my tweezers to poke the little petals up (creating a textured, 3D look). And that was pretty gorgeous right there – and I COULD have stopped right then! 😉
But..instead – I used the long die in the Hydrangea Dies to cut 9 Purple Posy flowers and 9 Vellum cardstock flowers. These are adhered all over the flower with Liquid Glue.
I cut a detailed stem/leaves from Pear Pizzazz. I also stamped three of the two-leaf images in Old Olive. These are two-step images! I cut them with their matching die.
I adhered two of the stamped leaves to the small card front – added the detailed die cut leaves/stem on top – then added the third stamped leaf. Finally – I added the flower head with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A Pearlescent Pearl (part of the Hydrangea Hill Suite coming on 5 Jan) next to the sentiment, and some small Pearl Basic Jewels in the middle of each small Purple Posy flower – and the little card front was done.
On the inside of the little card, I stamped a second sentiment from Hydrangea Haven in Misty Moonlight in the middle of a Whisper White panel. Then I added the flower cluster outline image in Highland Heather and the fill in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into the small card base. I also adhered the card front with Liquid Glue.
To assemble the fun-fold, I adhered the entire small card to the large card base – using Liquid Glue on the back of the smaller card. And – that was it!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the small Hydrangea Haven flowers on the front…
…and more of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! My goodness – this new Hydrangea Hill Suite is just stunning! From the beautiful Hydrangea Haven stamp set with it’s wonderful images, perfect sentiments, and the bundled flower-building Hydrangea Dies…
…to the spectacular Hydrangea Hill DSP!
I hope you like! And – are making your lists!! 5 Jan is just around the corner!!
