Hydrangea Die

Hello friends!
2016 marks the year of hydrangea craze for me.
I have acquired a few dies and stamps.  
This Hydrangea die from Simon Says Stamp was so popular that it was out of stock for a long time.
I had made a few projects in the late summer and I thought it is high time to share them with you. 

Enjoy today's photo tutorial.
I gathered all the purple Distress Inks and Perfect Pearl and created my own color paper.

I then worked on the the frame die.

It was so relaxing to play with this Hydrangea die.

Time to embellish and assemble.

Card #1

Brilliant, Virginia. You created lovely cards using an unusual die that I've never seen. You created three cards, I'm especially drawn to #2-especially for you. The colors, softness and beauty really amazes me. Thank you.

Wowee! You got so much out of this little die set. Those flowers look so real due to your excellent coloring skills. And the cards...they all look so different, each with their own beauty.

Such a beautiful collection of cards, Virginia! I really love how you created an ombre effect with your sentiment on card #2, and how you created your own colored paper for the Hydrangea's! You are so creative!!!
