Making paper Hydrangeas with your heart punch

Pin It
Hi all, Happy spring! :) its a beautiful day out today Ive been for my walk and there's not a cloud in the sky! God has blessed us this week in so many ways but in particular with an understanding of a deeper faith in Him which i know will see us through future hardships in life, its like the ultimate light bulb has gone on especially for me and i know i can shine that back to my family and friends :)
I had a really nice day yesterday creating these Hydrangea flowers how gorgeous did the turn out! they look just like the ones in our back garden! and they are soooo easy to make. I use the heart punch from stampin up for the flowers and the leaves and glued a half pear in the centers. Ive coloured them with certainly celery in the center and bashful blue on the outsides.

Here is another version of the same flower but with a larger 1/2" circle center. I also use the 2 step bird punch wing and branch for the leaves in this spray of flowers and the wide oval to add some curly vines. Glitter to finish!

And don't these look great with just a single flower on the card!

all the products Ive used to make these cards and more are from Stampin up and can be purchased through me here. you can download a print out of this free tutorial here
and now watch the video ! enjoy and have a great day..
Blessings to you

and a last thought

"You, Lord, give perfect peace to those
who keep their purpose firm and
their trust in you"
Isiah 26:3

Jackie Barfield said...

These looked so good and easy to make so I tried it. But my heart punch is not working right. UGH! It will punch one layer of cardstock but not two. :( I'm going to try sharpening it and see if that helps. Thanks for sharing!

Cheryl said...


Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers. Thanks so much for sharing them with me. Now I can see them year round. I live in South Texas, USA and it is so hot here in the summer that they don't grow outside very well. Have a blessed day!
