The 2021 Stampin' Up!® January-June Mini catalog is full of so many beautiful stamp set, dies, Designer Series Paper (DSP) and embellishments. For the Festive Friday challenge I pulled out the Hydrangea Haven bundle. This was my first real play with the products and I am hooked. Before I get started telling you about the Hydrangea Hill Suite let's talk about the Challenge.
The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge and each challenge lasts 10 days. The challenge is inspired by a festivity and based on that festivity an inspiration list is created aka Inspo List. There are always 10 items on the list and to play in the challenge you need to use at least 3 items from the list on your project. You post your project on the Festive Friday blog gallery. There are just a few rules and you can find them here
This challenge #FF78 ends on March 1 at 4 pm CST. I hope you will join in the fun. I would love to see what you create.
As I mentioned I used the Hydrangea Haven bundle, Hydrangea Hill DSP, and the Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon on my card. The 3 items from the Inspo list on my card: fun fold, flowers, and female sentiment.
The beautiful flower was cut using a die from the DSP. I wish i could claim that I colored it but it is the paper. The die is pretty special, it partially cuts out little flower petals which i pushed out so it looks dimensional. I may have gone a little rhinestone crazy but sometimes you just gotta do it. The rhinestones were colored using the Dark Highland Heather Stampin' Blends. All the patterned paper is from the Hydrangea Hill DSP pack.
The lovely sentiments are from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set and they are powerful words. I am sure we all know someone or many someone's we could send this card to. The larger label was cut using the Stitched Nested dies and the smaller stitched rounded rectangle is from the Hydrangea dies.
