Simon say stamps Hydrangea Blooms Christina Hor Designs

Hello!  My project today is a set of clean and simple 'Thinking of You' Hydrangea Blooms cards using the beautiful Hydrangea Blooms stamp & die set from Simon Says Stamp with the sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Tucked In: Thinking of You stamp set.  The Spellbinder Nestabilities Classic Rectangle LG was also used on this project.

What started out as a project for one card turned into a set of 6.  I was having too much fun inking up this beautiful hydrangea blooms that I didn't want to stop! 


The MISTI precision stamping tool and my homemade vinyl grid templates made it so easy getting the sentiment perfectly aligned and quickly mass produced of these cards!

HOW TO PERFECT SENTIMENT STAMPING EVERY TIME...



The hydrangea blooms and leaves were stamped with the Simon Says Stamp ink pads Hydrangea and Jellybean onto Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock. Then cut out using the coordinating dies and Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine.


Assembling pieces:  A2 folded card base (4.25x5.50 finished), A2 panel, hydrangea, leaves and 'Thinking of You' sentiment panel.  The sentiment was stamped with Simon Says Stamp ink pad Intense Black.


HOW TO CREATE A2 (4.25x5.50) CARD BASE:  


Take each 8 1/2x11 size cardstock in Bazzill Marshmallow, Bazzill Sour Grape and the Reverse Confetti Piggy Bank and cut in half at 5 1/2".  Then score each half at the 4 1/4" mark using a scoring board and bone fold.

  4. Christina, I really like the clean, simple look of your hydrangea cards! The shade of purple is so vivid, and and the image looks so neat and evenly shaded. Isn't the Misti a wonderful tool? Your cards will be a blessing to the recipients. So glad you joined the challenge at Jo's Scrap Shack this week.
    Blessings,
    Christine

  5. Hi Christina, a gorgeous set of cards, love the bright purple you have made the Hydrangeas, our soil will only grow pink flowers here, but next door neighbours have both blue and pink flowers in their garden without trying. Love the sentiment stamp you have used too. Have a wonderful week... Megan
