In the Hydrangea Garden - Stampendous

Well we're back this week so hello to all hope you've all enjoyed your break and for a change it's not Christmas this week so don't be too disappointed will you lol!

Classes this week start on Tuesday evening at 7pm and on Thursday at 10am & 7pm just so you know and we will be making a 8x8 card and a 6x6 card using this beautiful stamp and die set Hydrangea Garden from Stampendous. It's one of their Cling Jumbo sets and the stamps come with a free template/mask and there are four stamps to this set not to mention the dies that go along with it but they are sold as a separate item and they do help if you don't like to cut out your stamped images......... Don't be lazy I say........get them cut NOT lol!! not if you don't have to this saves time. Anyhow lets move on and show you what I came up with nothing too stressful for our first week back after our break.

OK here's a brief run down on card one.
This is the 8x8 card.

I have used the Vintage Words embossing folder in the background and inked lightly with Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw and round the edge  with Black Soot.

The centre panel is patterned paper and embossed with Vintage Floral Blooming Wonderful, inked with a tiny hint of Peeled Paint and Spun Sugar, a touch of Black Soot and then I used my Pebeo Silver Gilding Wax around the edges.

The Hydrangea and Butterfly have been stamped onto silver Pearl card in black Versafine and embossed with Clear Powder then coloured with Alcohol Markers (I used my Spectrum Noir Pens) in pale pinks and lilac and also a soft peach. The leaves have been stamped onto white card and embossed then coloured using Distress Ink.
I glittered the Butterfly by spraying it with Spray and Shine then adding the glitter whilst still wet. A black marker pen was used to colour some of the die cut sign.

 Card two is 6x6.
The background panel is black card which has been embossed with Die'sires Floral Frenzy (well I think that's what it's called) then I have added my Gilding wax to highlight the embossing, have to say I'm loving these waxes................
The Hydrangea has been stamped onto white card once with Shaded Lilac and embossed with Clear Powder and again onto white card this time with a Clear ink pad and embossed with White Powder, both images have been painted with Distress Inks. The Leaves have been stamped with Mowed Lawn and embossed in Clear Powder.

I have added a little touch of Stickles Glitter Glue to the centre of the flowers on both cards.

So that's it for now and I will see you all at class  : )
