Hydrangea Pitcher

"One Last Summer Vacation" is this week's theme for the Stampendous Design Team. August is here already and everyone is busy cramming all the fun they can into these last wonderful days of summer! The gardens are peaking this week with beautiful blossoms showing off in the summer heat.

I just love having fresh cut flowers around the house and this beautiful Hydrangea Pitcher stamp (Q232) from Stampendous reminds me of those summer bouquets.

Instructions:
Step 1:  Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Wildflower cardstock in half to form an A2 card
Step 2: Use the Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the Hydrangea Pitcher image on a 4" x 4" piece of white cardstock, color with Copic Markers
Step 3: Use the size Q die set from the Fitted Frames A set, using the smaller to cut out the Hyndrangea image and the larger to cut a mat from Deep Purple, adhere the two layers together
Step 4:  Place the Cathedral Windows stencil face down on the large platform of a die cut machine, spritz a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock with a fine mist of water and carefully line the paper up over the stencil, place a rubber embossing mat over the paper, add two unused cutting plates and run the sandwich through the machine
Step 5:   Place the embossed image face up and use 1/2" stencil brushes to add the purple and green inks randomly over the design
Step 6: Wrap the ribbon around the bottom area of the embossed layer, tie a knot, wrap the the two loose ends around to the back and tape in place
Step 7:  Adhere the embossed background to the card front
Step 8:  Use foam tape to apply the Hydrangea image to the card front

Happy Creating,
