Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop I have a sneak peek of the pretty new Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven bundle and the new Hydrangea Hill designer series paper from the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a theme challenge this week, and the theme is that we are to use something new for our projects! So the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven bundle is perfect for today’s project!
I adhered a panel of the new Hydrangea Hill designer series paper to the front of a Highland Heather card base. I used the fancy die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies to cut out a large frame from Whisper White and adhered a smaller panel of Hydrangea Hill DSP to the center. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the lined hydrangea image from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White card stock and colored it with Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the corresponding die from the Hydrangea Dies.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crumb Cake card stock and cut it out with the little tag die. I tied it around the die cut flower with linen thread and adhered the flower to the card front with dimensionals. I made a fluffy bow with more linen thread and adhered it to the flower to finish the card front.
I stamped the outline hydrangea flowers in the corners of a Whisper White panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamped over them with Highland Heather ink and the corresponding solid image stamp. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added a strip of Hydrangea Hill to the bottom before adhering it to the inside of the card.
The new Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven bundle looks like it’s going to be very versatile and fun to play with. And the sentiments are really sweet, and I love that several of them are small enough to be stamped on the little flower tag like I did today. Check out the bundle in the picture below and remember that it will be available for purchase next week on January 5! Yay!!
