Love This Hydrangea!


I love, love, LOVE this hostess set! The Level One Hostess sets are wonderful this year! I want every one of them!


I have to admit that I am addicted to our textured impressions embossing folders. They do so much to step up a card and it is such a quick and easy process. I used the Square Lattice folder for this card. I stamped the hydrangea in Sahara Sand first.


Hydrangeas often change colors as they age. To get this look, I inked the stamp in Sahara Sand first and then sponged on a little Cherry Cobbler with a sponge dauber. You can’t see it in the pic, but I added shimmer mist to the main image.


The Cherry Cobbler layer is done using the Top note die. I used a piece of card stock that was about 3/4 of an inch larger than I needed in height and then trimmed the top and bottom with the top note die.
