Best of Flowers: Hydrangea

009It’s March and Spring is (or should be) on it’s way so it’s time for some flowers!  Have you checked out the “Best of Flowers” stamp set?  You should!  This is the perfect set for Spring!

I first stamped the “En Francais” background  stamp on a piece Shimmery White card stock with Crumb Cake ink.  I did stamp off first so that it would be pretty light.  Then I stamped the Hydrangea randomly over the stamped background with Black StazOn ink.  I cut three squares from the background (ok…I used my retired square punches) making sure I had different parts of the flower on each square.  I mounted the flower squares on black and that was it.

It’s hard to see from the picture but before I mounted the black squares with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I scored a couple of lines on the Crumb Cake card stock with my Simply Scored and then centered the squares between the score marks.  It really added to the card.

The sentiment is from the “A Dozen Thoughts” stamp set.  This “just because” is one of my favorite because it’s such a cute font.  This was a pretty easy card and so pretty.  I do need to confess that I CASEd it though.  I don’t want to take credit for something I didn’t completely design!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
