Mothers Day Hydrangea Cards - Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Dies

Hello Crafty Friends and Welcome! I have two cards for you today, as well as a how to video! I used Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers - Hydrangea die set to create two beautiful Mothers Day cards. Both card use Distress Oxide Ink to create this flowers. 


 For the first card, I started with an A2 sized card base using Neenah Classic Crest 110lb heavy weight cardstock. I then die cut a rectangle using MFT - A2 Stitched Rectangles STAX in the largest size from a light blue cardstock. I die cut another rectangle using the same die set, only one size smaller rectangle and smooth white cardstock. I embossed this smaller rectangle, using a flourish embossing plate from Cuttlebug. 

I die cut all the pieces needed for my hydrangea from heavy weight smooth white cardstock. I used heavy weight cardstock, because I was going to be adding a lot of Distress Ink and wanted the paper to hold up. Once all the pieces are glued together it's thick but very durable. 

I began by adding Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass, then added Salty Ocean and some Shaded Lilac. For some of the flowers, I added a yellow centre using Squeezed Lemonade. I have posted the how to video for these flowers at the bottom of this post. 

I then used Distress Oxide Ink in Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness to color the leaves. Once I had everything colored, I glued the flower together using Lineco Neutral pH glue. 

I stamped the Mom sentiment using Simon Says Stamps Sassy Mama stamp, with VersaMark ink and gold embossing powder. Then I stamped the "You are Loved" sentiment from MFT - More Essential Sentiments using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder. I glued everything down on the card base. Lastly, I added some white Stickles glitter gel to the yellow flower centres. 

For my second Hydrangea card, I went with a pink and white hydrangea flower. For this card, I started with an A2 card base using Neenah Classic Crest 110lb heavy weight cardstock. I then cut a rectangle from glitter gold cardstock. I found this great woodgrain patterned paper in my stash and used it for the background on this card. 

I die cut the pieces of the hydrangea flower from smooth white heavy weight cardstock. Then I used Distress Oxide Ink in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry to create this flower. I colored the leaves the same as my first card using Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink. 

For this card, I die cut the word Mother from Karen Burniston's "Happy Mothers Day" die and trimmed the Happy and Day from it. I cut this twice, once from gold glitter cardstock and once from black cardstock, then glued the pieces together to give the word some dimension and stability. Then I stamped the sentiments "happy" and "day" from MFT - Essential Sentiments stamp set, using VersaMark ink and white embossing powder. 

I glued everything together using Lineco Neutral pH glue. I just love Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers flower dies. They go together very well and they are easy to work with. They turn out so beautifully every time. I highly recommend them. Be sure to check out the how to video below and subscribe to my channel, I post a new video every Thursday!
