Dies R Us Spring Flowers


After a long winter, it is always exciting to see the flowers begin to flower and grow. Our theme this month at Dies R Us Challenge Blog is spring  flowers.  I received a birthday card using this pretty IO hydrangea die and I was reminded that I have the die but have  not used it in quite some time.  The flower I got was pink so I made mine blue.  I have blue, pink, and white hydrangeas that are leafed out but not blooming yet. I can't wait. 

I started with this Tutti Rose frame.  I sponged the center of the die and inlaid it in the frame and put that on a blue card base. 

Next, I cut the parts of the hydrangea.  You have to cut the flower petals several times, and glue them on separately, which is time consuming, but not hard. I cut them from blue and sponged the edges a bit. Then you glue the flowers to the base piece.  Add the stem and some leaves for a finished flower. 

A thinking of you from Creative Expressions and a bow finished the design.
