Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Hill Thanks!

Hey y’all – happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is going well.  Just a quick reminder that TOMORROW is the very last day to get in on my Special Bundles from the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!  Don’t miss out – you can check them all out right here.

My card for today uses the Hydrangea Haven Bundle and coordinating Hydrangea Hill DSP (conveniently available in Bundle #4!) to make a thank you card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

I started with a piece of Purple Posy card stock for the card base.  On the front, in Highland Heather ink, I stamped one of the Hydrangea Haven flower outline images all over the front.  Then I used the matching fill image in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  In between the flowers, I stamped the Hydrangea Haven thank you sentiment in Misty Moonlight.

I used the largest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut two pieces of Hydrangea Hill DSP.  I adhered the bottom panel with Liquid Glue and the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a third design from Hydrangea Hill DSP with the next-to-smallest rectangle die from Stitched So Sweetly and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a Gold Hoop with a Glue Dot (under the right side – where it would be hidden by the sentiment).  Then I used a Glue Dot to adhere a bow that I’d tied with two pieces of Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

I stamped the Hydrangea Haven sentiment in Misty Moonlight on Basic White and cut it with the die in the Hydrangea Dies.  Then I used double stacks of Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it over the bow.

I added a few Seaside Spray Pastel Pearls and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped a second Hydrangea Haven sentiment in Misty Moonlight onto a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added the flower in Highland Heather and stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I also inked part of a stem from the Hydrangea Haven set in Mossy Meadow – stamped it off once – and added it.  Then I added the outline leaves in Mossy Meadow – and the fills in stamped-off-once Mossy Meadow.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Hydrangea Haven flower, stem and leaves on the front…

…and more of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Is this bundle not wonderful??  It’s amazing even if you DON’T make the gorgeous die cut flower like I did on this card!

And there is little doubt but that the Hydrangea Hill DSP is….STUNNING!! 🙂

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn has a skill.

Okay – he’s got a few skills, but this one…

If I didn’t know for sure that there are NO mirrors at his height – I’d say he practiced this in front of one every day until he got it down to a science.

It’s called…Fun With Paws.  Or…how to get cute without looking like you’re even trying.

We see this behavior when he goes to bed at night – and sometimes just when he goes into the kennel during the day.

He walks in – flops in the far corner and – instantly arranges his paws to be totally adorable.

Case in point.
