Hydrangea Blooms by Laura Bassen

Purple Hydrangea flower (Hydrangea macrophylla) in a garden
Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Gorgeous real life shot of hydrangeas above, isn’t it? This was the inspiration for the fantastic Laura Bassen for her feature today, and oh my goodness did she represent it well! She used the Hydrangea Blooms stamps and dies along with some of her favorite Simon Says Stamp inks (including HOT MAMA!) to recreate this gorgeous scene in card form. Don’t forget to watch the video, and enjoy!
