artisan design team – february 2021 monthly project – hydrangea haven…

02.20.2021…..Happy Saturday, everyone! I’m so excited to share my February monthly showcase project for the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Artisan Design Team! For this month’s projects, I was asked to use the gorgeous Hydrangea Haven Bundle, from the January – June Mini Catalog!

There have also been a few changes to the way the Artisan Design Team is sharing projects this year. The team has been divided into three groups, and each group is assigned a different collection of products to create with. This means an even greater variety of projects and inspiration. And…Instead of the monthly blog hops, the team will have a greater presence on the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Facebook Page and their Instagram account as well.

Be sure check out the rest of the team’s fabulous creations on the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Facebook Page at :

For each of my cards, I embossed the hydrangeas (from the Hydrangea Haven Bundle) on Crumb Cake Cardstock, using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut them out with the coordinating dies from the same bundle, I used my Water Painter, along with to quickly color in the hydrangeas with Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, and Pear Pizzazz.

For the card base, I used Basic White Thick Cardstock, and added a touch of 2020-2022 6″ x 6″ DSP, as well as In Good Taste DSP, to add a bit of a rustic look. To create some background texture on two of the card, I also used the Painted Textures 3D Embossing Folder and the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiments (also from the Hydrangea Haven Bundle) were heat-embossed on Basic Black Cardstock, using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. For the Basic White scalloped edges on the cards, I used one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

For a bit of texture, I added Linen Thread and Terracotta Tile ribbon (from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack). For a touch of bling, I sprinkled on several of the Woven Threads Sequins.

Wishing you creativity always,

The 2020-2021 catalog is sooooo jam-packed with soooooo many amazing stamps sets, accessories, and more….and I know your wish list will be overflowing before you know it!
