Can You Believe I Waited This Long???? Hydrangea Haven. I mean seriously, this is the very first time I have even inked the set up, let alone cut into the Designer Series Papers! Well, on Tuesday this week I finally got round to using this suite of products. The Stamps, Dies and Pearls are carrying over to the new catalogue, but the papers will sadly be leaving us in June. I should add that the Stamps and Dies will still be BUNDLED in the new Annual Catalogue, so you can save 10% on the combined price by using the Bundle Code.
The first card I mad on Tuesday made the most of the paper and one design in particular. All you really need to do with the particular design is cut it into card fronts. I have added some Rococo Rose Card and Ribbon, as well as some of the matching pearls. Other than that, a quick bit of stamping and embossing, oh and fussy cutting, and the card was done. For once I remembered to add some stamping on the inside. That’s it! Quick, simple, easy, however you like to describe this type of project, it was certainly that!
The second card uses one of the lovely watercolour effect papers as a ‘solid’ for the layer on the front of the Seaside Spray Card Base. I stamped the outline of the hydrangea by selectively inking in Seaside Spray and Mossy Meadow Ink. The ‘filling’ for the leaves are stamped in Old Olive, and the flower is 2nd generation Seaside Spray. This was then die cut and popped up on Dimensionals on a Purple Posy scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. The finishing touch was some more of the Pastel Pearls. Again, not a complicated card, but really pretty.
Did you spot that I managed to use 3 of the retiring InColors? Sadly most of the 2019-21 InColor Products have now sold out. InColor products are always some of the first to sell out when the Retiring Catalogue goes live, so please remember this next year!
