Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop. We are an international group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators who have come together to share our ideas with you. We blog hop on the the 3rd Wednesday of the month and this month our theme is the Hydrangea Hill suite. Thank you for joining us today and please enjoy the hop!
I am not typically a purple person but I am learning to be one. I cut out the basic flower and stem using the Hydrangea dies. I cut the detailed stem and leaves in Mossy Meadow CS. The beautiful flower was cut using the dies and the Hydrangea Hill DSP. One of the special features of this flower die is that it partially cuts out the petals of the individual flowers that make up the larger bloom. This little fluffing of the petals adds dimension to the flower. I cannot resist putting a little embellishment in the center of the flowers. Here I used the Metallic Pearls in silver.
When I attached the the leaves I made sure that the middle leaf was not secured down so it could fit over the belly band. The small leaf was secured to the front so the belly band would go over it smoothly. Love the sheer ribbon. It is soft and very easy to tie. Under the bow I secured a little tag also from the Hydrangea dies with a sentiment from the Hydrangea Haven set.
I haven't stamped a sentiment inside since I am not sure who I will be sending this too. You can also attach a little pocket on the second panel and insert a gift card or cash.
Let me know if you are interested in a tutorial for this card project. I did not have time to do one for this post but would be happy to make one. Leave me a comment if you are interested.
Here is a list for all the stops on the hop.
In addition to this blog hop the Creativity Abounds team has also created a tutorial bundle. There are 13 tutorials using the products in the Hydrangea Hill suite. These are all new projects and they are beautiful! Here is a little peek at the projects.
You can purchase the tutorial bundle for $15.00 (US, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org) or place a $35 order or more using the Host Code XTBH9HV and I will send the tutorials to you as a thank you gift.
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the Creativity Abounds Hop!
