Stampin’ Up! Clean and Simple Hydrangea Haven Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge using the new 2021-2023 In-Colors.

I decided to keep things real clean and simple using the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set. This card is perfect for someone just beginning to stamp or for someone who wants a quick and easy card.

My card starts off with Fresh Freesia cardstock, which I covered with a pattern from the Pansy Patch Designer Series Paper.

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the images from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set in Soft Succulent and Fresh Freesia ink (stamping off for the lighter shade).

I then matted this on Fresh Freesia cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen ink.

Lastly, I added a Bumblebee Trinket next to the flowers.

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Mother’s Day Card

This week we’re talking about showing gratitude and for today I have a Mother’s Day card using the Hydrangea Haven Bundle.

The card may not come straight out and say thank you, but I think you’d agree that Mother’s Day is like 24 hours dedicated to saying thank you to mom.

Now, let’s be clear, I say mom, but it can be a mother figure, step-mom, grandma, or a friend who happens to be a mom.

Let’s take some time today to think about what mom in your life could use a thank you – you know, that mom who gives and gives and deserves some acknowledgment and gratitude for all they do!

Now on to the card details…

My card starts off with Highland Heather cardstock, on which I adhered two patterns from the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper. I covered the seam with a piece of Gorgeous Grape ribbon.

Next, I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the “splotch” from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set (from the top down) in Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive ink. Over that I stamped the hydrangea image in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape ink and matted it, as well as the other Basic White panel, on Gorgeous Grape cardstock.

I then added a couple of Pastel Pearls and a Rhinestone around the sentiment and added a Gorgeous Grape bow.

*Tip: I always tie the bow separate and just adhere it over. Firstly because I always do a fork bow and secondly because it’s just easier!

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Acetate Card

Happy March!

Here’s hoping it behaves more like a lamb and not a lion and brings spring quickly.
Don’t get me wrong – I love me some snow.

But come March, I’m ready for tulips, sunshine, and fresh air!

I had a customer ask recently if I could make a card using the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper and the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Acetate, so here we go…

My card starts off with Purple Posy cardstock, although I cut the bottom off the front from where the acetate starts down.

I then cut a piece of the Hydrangea Mercury Acetate at 4-1/4 x 5-1/2, adhering it to the Purple Posy card front. One side of this acetate has purple hues and the other side is silver. I put the silver side out.

Next, I took a pattern from the Hydrangea Hill DSP, cut it down to cover the top and bottom, matted it on Basic White cardstock, and adhered it over the acetate.

Next I stamped the “filler” image from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set in Old Olive ink. I cut it out, as well as a Purple Posy petal detail, and Old Olive leaf detail using the Hydrangea Dies. I adhered this over the acetate using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape ink, cutting it out with the same dies.

On the inside, I added a piece of the same pattern of Hydrangea Hill DSP and stamped some of the flowers in Gorgeous Grape ink.

Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven Video Tutorial

I had so much fun last week creating today’s card using the Hydrangea Haven Bundle.

I watercolored the flowers before cutting them out, which gives a really cool effect. The card I made live came out even different, so each time you make it, you’ll get a slightly different look.

My favorite part of the card though is the cutest, littlest tag for the sentiment.

I’ll be back tonight and I have something REALLY special and different for you. I worked on it this weekend and almost didn’t want to wait until tonight to show it to you because I am THAT excited!!!

I’ll be live at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page. If you catch it live, you’ll have a chance to win the card.

If you ever miss a card making video of mine, you can catch them on my YouTube Channel. Also, while there, be sure to subscribe to my channel as starting this week I’ll be going live on YouTube also!!

Be sure to pin the image below to Pinterest for color inspiration!
