The Hydrangea Hill Suite is so beautiful! I used the fabulous designer series paper to make this card.

I cut the pieces per the list above.

Out of the larger piece of designer series paper, I cut the hydrangea flower from the center using the Hydrangea Dies.

From the center of the large piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock I cut the solid hydrangea flower. Only the top is needed so it can be partially cut and snipped with scissors. I rounded the cut end to blend in with the shape (not shown)

I cut the detailed leaves and the solid leaves out of Old Olive Card Stock. The rest of the shape is not needed so you do not have to cut it out. I glued them together using Fine Tip Glue.

I used 3 Mini-Dimensionals to adhered the hydrangea flower to the Gorgeous Grape flower.

I tied a piece of white baker’s twine around the stem with a bow. I left the tails very long!

I adhered the smaller piece of Designer Series Paper to the smaller piece of Gorgeous Grape Card Stock. I then adhered the stem and flower assemblies to the paper. I stamped the tag using Gorgeous Grape Ink and cut it out using the Hydrangea Dies. I tied the tag to one end of the baker’s twine and adhered it to the card using a Dimensional. I tied a single knot in both ends of the twine to keep it from unraveling.

For the final assembly, I adhered the larger piece of Designer Series Paper to the Gorgeous Grape Card stock. I adhered the card front to these mats. I then adhered the whole assembly to the Highland Heather card body. I adhered the Basic White liner to the inside of the card and stamped the envelope.

The Hydrangea Hill Suite is so beautiful! I used a piece of the border printed designer series paper to make this simple card. I embossed the sentiment to “step it up” a bit.

I cut the pieces per the list above.

I put the designer series paper in the Stamparatus and held it down with magnets.

I put the sentiment stamp on the paper where I wanted it. I closed the plate onto the stamp to pick it up.

I inked the stamp with Gorgeous Grape Ink and stamped the paper. I cleaned the stamp. I then inked the stamp with Versamark and stamped it over the original sentiment. I used Clear Embossing Powder to emboss it.

I adhered the card front to the mat. I tied a bow with Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon around the card.

I used dimensionals to adhere the card front to the Rococo Rose card. I added Pastel Pearls to the card front. Don’t forget to stamp your envelope!

Tips and Tricks: You can use the above technique to emboss in any color ink. If you do not have a Stamparatus, ink the stamp with Versamark and then the ink color and then stamp the paper with it. Use clear embossing powder to show off the colored ink!

I love the Hydrangea Hill Suite! This is a simple card using a small piece of Highland Heather Card Stock that I pearlized using Frost White Shimmer Paint.

I cut the pieces per the list above.

I embossed the piece of Highland Heather Card stock using the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder and then used Frost White Simmer Paint to pearlize it. I stamped the hydrangea outline using Granny Apple Green Ink on the piece of Basic White Card Stock. I then stamped the leaves using Granny Apple Green Ink on top of the outline. I stamped the hydrangea flower using Highland Heather Ink

To assemble the card front, I taped the white piece to the Highland heather piece by butting the pieces up against each other. I adhered this assembly to the Gorgeous Grape Card Stock. I tied a bow around the card at the seam using Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon. For the final assembly, I adhered the card front to the Thick Basic White card base. I added 3 Pastel Pearls. Decorate the envelope as you like.

I used the Fine Art Floral Suite to create this card. This suite is fabulous! Even simple cards look so beautiful.

I cut the pieces per the above list. I stamped the sentiment and the flower stem using Old Olive Ink and cut them out using the Floral Gallery Dies. I embossing one of the pieces of Basic White Card Stock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. For the flower, I stamped the background using Petal Pink Ink. I stamped the next layer with Flirty Flamingo Ink. For the flower center, I used Gilded Leafing Embellishment. See Art Gallery Card #3 for instruction on how to use the Gilded Leafing Embellishment.

I adhered the piece of the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper to the embossed piece of Basic White Card Stock approximately 1/4 inch from the left side. I adhered the strip of Gold Foil on the designer series paper approximately 1/4 inch from the left side using Fine Tip Glue.

For the final assembly, I adhered the sentiment, the flower and the stem to the card front using Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to the card. I stamped the envelope using the same method as above except I used Calypso Coral Ink for the center.

I used the Fine Art Floral Suite to create this card. The pictures of this card do not do it justice! This suite is fabulous!

I cut the pieces per the list above. I made sure that I used the same section of both of the designer series papers since the acetate lines up with the printed paper. I stamped the sentiment with Poppy Parade Ink and cut it out using the Floral Gallery Dies. I adhered it to the strip of Poppy Parade Card Stock. I stamped the stem of the flower with Old Olive Ink on Basic White Card Stock and cut it out using the Floral Gallery Dies. For the flower, I stamped the background using Poppy Parade Ink on Basic white Card Stock. I then used Heat and Stick Powder and Gilded Leafing Embellishment to finish the flower. See the “Tips and Tricks” section below for instruction on how to use the Gilded Leafing Embellishment. I cut out the flower using the Floral Gallery Dies.

The acetate has a protective layer of plastic on it. To remove this I use a piece of tape and put it on the corner of the piece and then peel the tape back removing the layer of plastic. To assemble this card the trick is to not see the adhesive that holds the acetate to the designer series paper. I adhered the flower and the sentiment assembly to the acetate using Dimensionals. I used Glue Dots under the flower and the sentiment to adhere the acetate to the designer series paper. I then adhered the entire assembly to the Poppy Parade mat and then to the Basic White card. Don’t forget to decorate the envelope.

  • Tips and Tricks:
  • The edges of the dimensionals can be cut with scissors into strips to use under the stem of the flower.
  • Using the Gilded Leafing Embellishment is similar to heat embossing. Before I started I poured the Gilded Leafing Embellishment into a plastic shoe box and fluffed it. I used a Versamark Pad to apply the adhesive to the paper. Then I poured the Heat and Stick powder on the area that I used Versamark. I tapped off the excess powder and heated it using a Heat Tool until it is clear and shinny. I turned the paper upside down in the Gilded Leafing Embellishment. I waited for the heat and stick powder to cool a bit. I rubbed off the excess gilding back into the container. Lastly, I heated the gilding with the heat tool to set it on the paper.

The Timeless Tulips Stamp Set is a great way to bring in spring! I used the Love You Always Foil to create this card.

The Timeless Tulips Stamp Set is a great way to bring in spring! I love a this simple stamping technique that I used to make this card.

I cut out the pieces per the list above. For the card front, I used my Paper Trimmer to put a pencil line on the paper to use as a guide. I put my line at 1-3/4 from the top.

I used strips of washi tape on either side of the pencil line. This gave me an area above and below the tape to stamp. I stamped the tulips using Gorgeous Grape Ink and the leaves using Granny Apple Green Ink above and below the tape. Make sure your stamps do not go into the other side when stamping. When you are done stamping, carefully remove the washi tape. It will be full of ink that may not be dry. I then used a Water Painter to splatter Gorgeous Grape Ink on the card.

I heat embossed the sentiment on the Gorgeous Grape strip using White Embossing Powder. I punched the end of the sentiment strip using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.

For the final assembly, I cut the Highland Heather strip so that it just covers the edge of the stamped tulips. I added the sentiment using Dimensionals. I added three Pastel Pearls to the card front. I adhered the card front to the card. I stamped the liner and adhered it to the inside of the card. I also stamped the envelope.

The Timeless Tulips Stamp Set is a great way to bring in spring! I made this card using some of the Love You Always Designer Series Paper.

I cut out the pieces per the list above. I stamped the leaves using Mint Macaron Ink and punched them out using the Tulip Builder Punch. I stamped one tulip using Blushing Bride Ink and one using Rococo Rose Ink.

I cut out the rectangle using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped 2 stems using Mint Macaron Ink on the rectangle. Since the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set is a photopolymer set the stems can be bent to curve any way you need.

I adhered the Love You Always paper to the Blushing Bride Card Stock 1/4 inch from the left hand side. I tied a bow around the stitched rectangle using Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon. I adhered the stitched rectangle to the card front. I used dimensionals to adhered the tulips to the card front. When I adhered the leaves, I put a dimentional under the end of the leaves and used Fine Tip Glue to adhere the other end under the bow. Lastly, I adhered the card front to the card. Don’t forget to stamp your envelope.

The Timeless Tulips Stamp Set is a great way to bring in spring! I made this card so that it could be displayed all season.

I cut the pieces per the list above. I scored the piece of Granny Apple Green Card Stock at 2-3/4 from one end and at 5-1/2.

I stamped 5 large tulips with Daffodil Delight Ink and 5 large tulips using Highland Heather Ink. Punch the tulips out using the Tulip Builder Punch. See the Tips and Tricks section for a paper saving tip.

I stamped the card front using the small tulips in Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight Ink. I added leaves with Granny Apple Green Ink.

I placed 9 of the punched tulips on the card front where they looked best. I then used washi tape to hold together the bottom 5 tulips. I turned this cluster over and taped them together so that I could pop them up on dimensionals. I removed the washi tape carefully.

I adhered the 3 remaining tulips in place.

I adhered the tulips on dimensionals to the card front.

I adhered the card front to the small piece of Granny Apple Green Card stock. I added a bow made with Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to the bottom using Glue Dots.

I adhered the card front to the top section of the card using Tear and Tape.

For the inside of the card, I stamped a tulip using Daffodil Delight Ink to the card liner. I should be placed approximately so the top of the tulip is at the middle of the card. I stamped the sentiment and the stems and leaves using Granny Apple Green Ink. The extra tulip is used to hold the card up. I adhered it using dimensionals. I adhered this entire assembly to the inside of the card. Don’t forget to decorate the envelope.

Tips and Tricks:

Stamp the tulips starting in the lower left side of the paper.

When you punch the tulips out, start with the tulip on the left. When you punch the next one the leaf that is also on the punch will punch where the previous tulip was. This will save paper by not punching extra leaves out of the paper.
