Sweet & Simple note card and envelope!

Here is the SECRET:

Blending Brushes #153611, three for $12! These velvety brushes make blending a breeze! Select a die image to create as a silhouette. Apply an Adhesive Sheet #152334 to the back of any card stock and die cut your shape. Position the die cut shape onto a card front. Use a Blending Brush to collect ink directly from the ink pad. Rubbing in circular motions, apply the color over and beyond the edges of the die cut. Build up the color intensity slowly until you have the desired effect. Remove die cut to reveal the silhouette! Remember to add an image to the envelope, too. SIMPLE!

Hydrangea Hill Suite and Envelope VIDEO

20210222_094340
GARDENING TIP: you can change the color of your garden Hydrangeas from pink to BLUE by adding SOIL ACIDIFER, found in your garden center near the fertilizers! It's MAGIC!!

The Hydrangea Hill Suite #155985 is ELEGANT and let's you create any color blossoms you desire on card stock! These are "Z" fold cards cut 4-1/4 X 11" then scrored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2". VERY EASY! I used the interesting Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate sheets #154574. The left one is Highland Heather color. The right one is flipped over to the silver side of the Mercury Glass Acetate.

 

20210222_094431

I inked the flower image in Highland Heather and then "rolled" the edge of the image in Seaside Spray ink for a lovely realistic color combo. That is called the "ROCK & ROLL" technique.

 

20210222_094209

I rarely make just one card at a time, so this one is varied from the other.

 

20210222_094455

Cards this exquisite demand fancy envelopes! The top envelope has the flap covered in the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper #154570. The lower card I created from the same Designer Papers using the border print and here is how:
