Hydrangeas Everywhere!



I was able to finish another card with the new 3 Step Hydrangea set this morning (before the day went crazy!) and I've had a few questions about what ink I used and how to layer up these gorgeous hydrangeas. So, I snapped a few pics of the steps so you can see how easy it is!

First, my card. This is pretty much a no layer card (unless you count the one smaller hydrangea that is cut out and popped up). I just did a tiny bit of masking here - and really it's not as bad as you may think! I just stamp the Step 1 stamp on my Eclipse Tape and cut it out - very easy! As you can see I also used one of the butterflies from the set. What a pretty and so life-like image!!! I also used the other new set Whole Family which has 50 stamps in it!! Everything you will ever need regarding families - love it!!

Ok, here is how I did these flowers (and I started by using a recipe Maria used on this card and altered it slightly):

Step 1 - River Rock, which was stamped off 1 time.









Step 2 - Certainly Celery









Step 3 - Old Olive













Step 4 - Vintage Violet. I know!! Violet?? When I saw Maria's recipe with this color I couldn't believe it - but it totally works and is so beautiful!! Amazing, isn't she?! :)










Now, for the flowers in the card from this morning I stamped Step 1 as above, River Rock stamped off 1 time. For Step 2 I used the new Sweet Blush by Papertrey Ink.





Step 3 is Certainly Celery









Step 4 is Always Artichoke



I hope this was helpful for you to see. I found that these flowers were really easy to line up and it is really fun to play with different color combination! Be sure to check out all the beautiful cards and projects by my fellow Crew Members (links on the right sidebar) - there are lots of amazing hydrangeas!! :) Have a great day!

  20. OMG! I LOVE this! Thanks for thte tutorial. Im not too challenged when it comes to stamping in 2-3 steps but I have to admit I wondered IF these one's would be easy. I was reluctant to even consider the,! Your color combo's are just amazing, and the hydrangea's look so REAL!!! Love it. I may have to get this set. Oh yeah, and congrats on the PUB!!!

  21. Oh, MY! This is SO beautiful! Who knew that THREE steps would be so realistic? Great color combos, and I just may have to break down and buy this set now. . .

  22. This stamp set is so beautiful and I really like how you showed how to use it in steps. Now I need to see if you have one for the Daisy set 'cause I'm feeling like the only nerd in the world that needs a stamp-a-ma-jig for clear stamps!!! ;)
