Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Tower Easter Card

Good Easter Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Easter!!! Hope you all have a wonderful day with family, friends or maybe just your fur babies. I’ll be spending part of the day with my family. We are also celebrating my nieces 40th birthday today, so we have a double celebration.

I have another version of my tower card for today. I thought it was appropriate to post an Easter card. For details and instructions, visit my blog from Friday April 2nd Here. The measurements are all the same I just used different colors.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Bundle for this card.

I also used the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper for this card.

My card base is Old Olive

The center stitched squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies are Highland Heather and Purple Posy

I used Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Old Olive Inks. I also used Highland Heather, Old Olive and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers along with some Clear Wink of Stella

I added a few Pastel Pearls to the card front

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter.

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good snowy Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. I woke up to another 6″ of snow on top of the 30 plus inches we got last week and this weekend. It’s not looking like spring here for sure. I’m starting to think this snow is not going away by spring for sure.

If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Bundle and the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper. Here are out colors for this weeks Blog Hop.

I started by using the Hydrangea Dies and cutting the tiny flowers from panels of Highland Heather, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray cardstock. I adhered a piece of Hydrangea Hill DSP to a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the tiny flowers to the flowers on the Hydrangea Hill DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Hydrangea Dies.

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the card front twice, stringing it through the sentiment, and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered 2 strips of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on either side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I added a couple of the tiny flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of Hydrangea Hill DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Hydrangea Haven CAS Encouragement Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you are all having a productive one.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Bundle for today’s card. I’m a guest designer this week again for the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge. Here’s my card for today.

Here are the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #403 colors for this week

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper. I adhered the panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and using my Blending Brushes, I added color to the panel using Melon Mambo on the top and Old Olive on the bottom. I then stamped the large hydrangea flower from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the colored panel. I cut the image out using my Hydrangea Dies and adhered it to the DSP card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of 1/2″ Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a bow on top of the stem. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few of the Opal Rounds to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven in the center of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the hydrangea image from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. Using my Blending Brushes I added Melon Mambo Ink on the bloom and Old Olive Ink on the leaves. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large flower from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Blending Brushes I added Melon Mambo Ink on the bloom and Old Olive Ink on the leaves. I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
