Hydrangea “For You” Card

Hydrangea For You Card

Hydrangeas are awesome! I remember my Grandmother always having huge, I mean HUGE hydrangea bushes in front of her home. The flowers were purple and blue and absolutely gorgeous. Clearly, my Grandmother could grow anything. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for me. At least, now I can stamp them to my heart’s content, and in any color I choose. Hopefully, you will create a Hydrangea “For You” card for someone in your life.  Your thoughtfulness will certainly be appreciated.

A Touch of Ink Happy Birthday Card

A Touch of Ink Happy Birthday Card

Hummingbirds are such amazing creatures!  A few fascinating facts about hummingbirds:  only found in the Americas, hummingbirds cannot walk, the smallest hummingbird species weighs less than a dime, and most beat their wings 60 to 80 times per second.  And I thought they were only pretty.  Hopefully, my “A Touch of Ink” Happy Birthday card showcases their beauty!

A Touch of Ink Thinking of You Card

A Touch of Ink Thinking of You card

As you can see from looking around my blog, I love butterflies. So, I was especially pleased when this set contained a beautiful side view butterfly.  I truly wish, Stampin’ Up! would include more side view butterflies in their stamp sets. Sometimes, you want to place them on a flower, and the full-on butterfly doesn’t seem to work quite as well. 

Have you tried the Stampin’ Up! Blends alcohol markers? Wow, they are so easy to use, and you get amazing results with minimal effort.  Be sure to check out my video below for some hints to great coloring.

Hopefully, you are now inspired to create your own A Touch of Ink Thinking of You card.

Art Gallery Happy Birthday

Art Gallery Happy Birthday Card

Who doesn’t love a beautiful birthday card? Well, I certainly do!  I especially love this Art Gallery happy birthday card I created with the new Art Gallery stamp set and die bundle from the new January-June 2021 Mini Catalog from Stampin’ Up!

birthday card using Art Gallery bundle

Over the years, I have developed a very personal card style.  I love layers of various sizes, and lots of them; I also want as much texture and variety to my card’s various layers.  For example, embossing folders, die cuts, sentiments, and embellishments.  Today, I stamped the large flower blossom around the perimeter of my card with Versamark ink. This provided the texture I wanted and made the base layer a little more interesting. I then added a layer of the new Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper. Which, by the way, you can choose as your Sale-a-bration gift with a $50 purchase. Next comes the stamped image; again, I was able to add a layer with the die-cut blossom.  The final touches are the die-cut sentiment, three pearls, and of course, Wink of Stella to bring the all-important sparkle to the blossom.

I hope you love this card as much as I do. Stick with me, and I know we can make beautiful cards together!

 

Cutting Details:

  • Mossy Meadow cardstock (card base) — 4-1/4 x 11; score and fold at 5-1/2
  • Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper (1st layer) — 3-3/8 x 4-5/8
  • Basic White cardstock (2nd layer) — 2-7/8 x 4-1/8

  • Basic White cardstock (inside of card) — 3-3/8 x 4-5/8
