For my Facebook Live Take Two yesterday I shared some more projects using the Hydrangea Hill Suite Collection. For my first card, I used the lovely Pearlescent Specialty Paper for the flower head. I stamped the image first and then cut lots of the small flowers using the strip of flower dies. I placed them on the stamped flower head image with glue dots and then added more of them with mini dimensionals to create some added texture and depth.

Here’s a close up of the Pearlescent flower head – wish you could see it in person -it is so shimmery and so pretty!
Next was a card using the beautiful Designer Series Paper. As I often say, with DSP this beautiful you don’t really need to add much more to your project!
I added a strip of the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate on the bottom panel of the card. Again, wish you could see it in person – it’s so pretty! I added a greeting by stamping on one of the dies from the So Sentimental Bundle, stamped the small flowers and leaves and finished up with a few of the Pastel Pearls and a Linen Thread double bow.
My last project – this was just plain fun! My love of bees got the best of me – I was shopping at Target and came across her! I knew I could come up with something cute with her – and I am pretty pleased with this adorable Queen Bee! Her wings were made with the Brilliant Wings Dies – I cut one of the largest solid butterfly shapes with Daffodil Delight cardstock, and then cut the largest detailed wing die with vellum. I attached them wings together with glue dots and then attached her wings onto the bee – also with glue dots.
Since she is a “Queen Bee”, I thought she needed some sort of crown – so I used Linen Thread and wrapped it around her head – securing it with glue dots. I then used the ‘strip of small flowers’ die from the Hydrangea die and cropped a few Daffodil Delight flowers for her crown. I think she is pretty cute!
I also found some little chocolate lady bugs and bees and I added some wings to them as well! They just make me smile! Wouldn’t these be a fun way to brighten someone’s day?
