Handmade-hydrangea-card-of-appreciationToday's Stampin' Up! project is a handmade card of appreciation created with the beautiful Hydrangea Haven Photopolymer Stamp Set [154470]In this particular sample, the retired Roccoco Rose is used for the pink color.  If you do not have that retired ink pad in your stash, you can use a different pink such as Blushing Bride Classic Stampin' Pad [147100] or Petal Pink Classic Stampin' Pad [147108].

Also to note: While these images were cut with scissors after stamping, you can also use the coordinating dies to cut the images.  Get 10% off when you purchase the bundle and dies together..the Hydrangea Haven Bundle.
