Here is my card using DIE044-Y Hydrangea Set , CL463 Hydrangea CLEAR Set and CC081 Cover-a-Card Damask

The paper that was used for the die cut flowers were colored with Grape Gelatos. The Cover-a-Card Damask stamp was scribbled with Gelatos ( Grape, Guava and Snow Cone). I misted and stamped. Super easy! Pretty huh?

(no pun intended)

  55. Beautiful card — love the colours your have choosen! I am looking at those tiny blossoms and thinking they would also be suited to lilacs (we have more lilacs than hydrangeas in our area).

  62. Beautiful card! I may have to give gelatos a try and put the hydrangea die on my want list!

  63. very pretty!
