For 'Someone Special'

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday Post for
Just Us Girls
This week it's Photo Week
and our Host is Lisa.

I knew what stamp I wanted to use here and it is
SU Because I Care and I love the main stamp
being a hydrangea. It always has a variety of colours
and going with the Amethyst below was perfect.
(not to mention my favourite colour)

I inked up my watercolour paper with
Lindy's Witches Potion Purple Spray
and added the Magical's in the same colour
as they have this gorgeous shimmer to it.
I then cut out a zillion small flowers
from my MS hydrangea punch.
That done I put them aside to concentrate
 on the rest of my card.
I chose SU Tip Top Taupe for the card base and frame
and also stamped the leaves/stem in the same colour.
This was on cream linen card stock.
Underneath the punched flowers the flower image
was stamped with Memento Sweet Plum as a guide.
I touched up the leaves with a hint of green.
My sentiment is from STAMPlorations Fluttery
This was popped for dimension.
Added a few gemstones, some ribbon
and a bit of Nuvo shimmer.

Pop over and see what our Special Guest Lisa Elton
and the Team created and come join us.
You could be Chic of the Week and
be our guest in April.
Thanks for dropping in

Purple is my favorite color as well, and I am just LOVING this gorgeous hydrangea! I have not used my MS hydrangea punches in years, so I may have to dig deep and see if I still have them!! This is just gorgeous and will make someone feel extremely special when they receive it! Beautiful framing for a stunning flower, well done!

Cheri said...

Holy moly, SS, that's a lot of tiny flowers, but look at all the awesome texture and dimension you created!!! Wow!!! Absolutely stunning card!

Judy Woodland said...

Oh, the patience. All those little flowers, EGAD!!! This is just stunning, I love your design and that frame. And that ribbon is the perfect final touch. The clean and simple look is perfect to showcase that beautiful flower/flowers, and of course I love the purple color!!!!

Kathy Krug said...

Gorgeous, Ina. Looks like you like glue just as much ad I do, Very realistic looking flower.

Verna Angerhofer said...

So very gorgeous and I can see all the work you put into it. First of all my hand would have cramped up with all the punching but it sure makes for a realistic hydrangea flower.

Such a striking card Ina and very beautiful. Love the colours from the Lindys and interesting that you can get different shades etc from the same colour but in the spray and the powders. Love the 3D effect and the pretty design. One very beautiful card x.

Chris Dring said...

Wow, wow, and WOW! Ina, this is incredible! Love the rich colors in the flowers, and the fact you punched them out makes my wrist hurt just thinking about it! What a beautiful card!

This is gorgeous Ina! Pairing it with kraft card stock was a great idea too! So worth the effort you put into it!

That's gorgeous!! Love how you've popped all the little flowers on top of the hydrangea stamp - so much depth and texture. Beautiful colors too!

Definitely a labor of love creating all those petals! I knew you were going to love this challenge, as I remember your favorite color is purple! You did a great job creating this beautiful floral card!

All those little tiny blossoms make your hydrangea look realistic, Ina. Lots of work but so worth it.
