Hydrangea Hill Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Birthday Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

I just received the Hydrangea Haven Bundle to go with my Hydrangea Hill Suite Collection. I know, why did I not buy them as part of the suite?? Well, I wasn’t quite sold on it yet, but I am sold on it now!  It’s gorgeous!  I just love the mix of Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather!  So soft and pretty!

Hydrangea Hill Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Birthday Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Misty Moonlight Cardstock.

Use a Bone Folder to distress the edges of a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Misty Moonlight Cardstock.  Adhere to the card base at an angle with Stampin’ Seal.

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper and a piece of Basic White Cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4.

Use a sewing machine to sew the two pieces together. Tear the edges of the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper, then distress the edges of both pieces with a Bone Folder.  Adhere to the card base as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to crop a piece of Misty Moonlight and Basic White Cardstock.  Adhere together with Stampin’ Seal, then zip it through again tucked inside the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the card as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add an angled strip of Stampin’ Seal to near the bottom of the Basic White die-cut.  Adhere the Purple Posy Ribbon (Playing With Patterns) to the strip as shown.

Stamp the Hydrangea image in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. Crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the coordinating Hydrangea Dies.

Color with Water Painters and the following Classic Stampin’ Inks:  Misty Moonlight, Highland Heather, and Mossy Meadow. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Misty Moonlight Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, remove excess, and set with a Heat Tool. Snip closely with Paper Snips. Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Embellish with Pastel Pearls.
