SU Simply Sketched and SU Because I Care

I mixed an old SU Hostess Set with a brand-spanking new Hostess set for The Dynamic Duos # 55 this week. This month marks the anniversary of my best friend’s daughter’s wedding day where we used hydrangeas right out of the yard for the centerpieces- it was a beautiful summer wedding. So, I thought  The Paper Players #148 challenge was spot on for this card as well. 

 It was really easy to get two colors on the hydrangea by inking a sponge dauber and applying it randomly to an already inked stamp. In this case, I inked the  SU Wisteria Wonder on the stamp first and then used the dauber inked up with  SU Raspberry Ripple to create a two colored flower. I used the luxurious  SU Satin- stitched ribbon with a ribbon slide to dress up the card.

  1. I love this hydrangea! I must dig it out of my stamp box and give it some love! You’ve made a beautiful card, Cindy! I really love the layout, and the ribbon and button give it the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for joining in at Dynamic Duos!

  2. I haven’t used this stamp for so long – I love how you inked it up using our colors from Dynamic Duos this week 😀 Thanks for playing!

  3. THis is so pretty…..I saw that color combo and ran for the hills! Yikes! But you made it look wonderful, especially considering they were the florals at a wedding! How sweet! Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week, too!

  4. I love hydrangeas. Wish they could grow here. I love your sponging technique and I think you did very well with a challenging color combo. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Players this week!
