Thinking of you

Hi there!

Since the day I bought the die I used for today's card, I wanted to make this card ! When I saw the inspiration at Muse Card club this week, I knew it was time to go on and make it! I love how it turned out and I want to try it again soon, using blue/purple hues. For today I tried pinks and purples :)


hydrangea card with Fri-Dies 4 petal die

A closer look:

hydrangea card with Fri-Dies 4 petal die

The die I mentioned is the 4 petals die from Casual Fridays. Every time I look at this little flower I see a Hydrangea.

I smooshed a piece of watercolor paper with different shades of pink and purple (zig markers)

I then stamped the snowing stamp from Altenew randomly all over and die cut a bunch of both sizes from the 4 petal die.

I then added the die cut leaves from Upsy daisy by My Favorite things which were cut from green watercolor smooshed paper.

The flowers were finished off with a tiny punched centre.

Thanks for looking!

These flower dies are perfect for a hydrangea! Love the pinks and greens together, too! Your smooshed petals and leaves are so lovely. Even with the pretty blossom, it retains its CAS look, too. Absolutely gorgeous card! Bev

This is so pretty. I love the different shades of pink with the splashes of deeper colours. Also so lovely how you layered up withing the frame. So good to see you at HLS

Ohhhh, very pretty! That's a lot of die cutting, but at least you can cut two flowers at once. It makes a most beautiful hydrangea bloom!

Jenny said...

Just so pretty and must have taken you a while to arrange all those individual flowers!! Well worth it though :)
