Whenever I first get a new Stampin’ Up!® catalog I always do a quick run through and write down everything I want. The problem with that is almost all the products go on that list! Then I wait a couple of days and go through it again. Some things on the original list get crossed off completely. Some of them go on the maybe list. Then I go through it again and put some things back on the list and take others off. As you can see, I have a hard time decided what to buy. The Hydrangea Hill Suite was always on my yes list.
Hydrangeas, irises and roses are my favorite flowers so when I saw this, it was definitely a must have set. One of the things that Stampin’ Up!® now does is give you one item number for all the products in a suite. It is such an awesome idea because you don’t have to enter all the different numbers. One number gets you everything! I will warn you ahead of time that you will see this suite many, many times on my blog because I love it.
To make this card, I took a piece of of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and then onto a Basic White card base. I stamped the flower using Memento Black Ink and then colored it using my Dark and Light Old Olive, Dark Seaside Spray and Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends. Blue Hydrangeas are my favorite although I love all of the colors they come in. I cut that out using the coordinating Hydrangea dies and then layered it onto Basic White and Mossy Meadow cardstock. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive ink. If you don’t want to order the entire quite you can still get a 10% discount on the stamp set and die Bundle.
