I used the Butterfly Bijou paper for the strip on the right.  That paper has SOLD OUT!  So sorry to see it go.  But you could substitute with any DSP that matches your card base.

These are the other cards we made in card class this week.  They all use the butterflies die cut out of the DSP, but you could substitute them with stamped & colored butterflies.  You can also replace the DSP on these cards. The Artistry Blooms paper has some nice background paper. The Flowers for Every Season paper would also be gorgeous with these butterflies.

This everything that is available in the suite. The stamp set and dies will carry over to the next Annual Catalog.  However the Designer Series Paper and Natural Paper are only available while supplies last.  So don't delay if you want the paper!

Creative Stampers Tutorial Bundle Group Blog Hop: Hydrangea Haven card


This month on the Creative Stampers Blog Hop we are celebrating spring!  After the foot of snow we had here in Arkansas a couple weeks ago, I am ready for spring! I had fun playing with the Hydrangea Haven suite. For this card, I used some of the gorgeous Designer Series Paper and one of the small stamps. The strip of green is Shimmery White paper that I watercolored with Old Olive.  I colored the flowers with Rococo Rose and Old Olive blends.  I also colored crinkle white ribbon with Rococo Rose blends. I love that you can use blends to make any embellishment match your project! The pearls are the Pastel Pearls that go with this suite. 

I wish the sparkle showed up better in photos.  I used Wink of Stella on the flowers after coloring them. Add the Shimmery White paper to that and you get lots of sparkle!
