Welcome to week 19 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Gorgeous Grape, a bright purple from the Brights colour collection.
I made a card and I wasn’t sure it worked. So I made another card and I still couldn’t decide which one to post …
So, I present to you my “this or that?” Gorgeous Grape cards!
This card has a Crumb Cake cardstock base and the hydrangea is coloured using the Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green Watercolour Pencils, blending them with the Blender pens. Both my cards have a Basic White layer embossed with the Typeworn Type Embossing folder.
This card has a Basic White card base and the Hydrangea is stamped with Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green. I used the long die from the Hydrangea Dies to cut the individual flowers from Gorgeous Grape cardstock.
I took this card up a notch by splattering and curling up the edges of the background embossed layer, also embossing the smaller front panel and using the Gorgeous Grape ribbon, cut in half for the bow. The stamped hydrangea is a lot darker than the hydrangea coloured in pencils in the other card.
I love the tiny tag that comes in this bundle!
This or that? I’m still not sure which card I prefer!
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what she’s made this week!

Week 28 – Misty Moonlight
I’m so excited to bring you a sneak peek this week of my favourite suite from the forthcoming 2021 January -June mini catalogue: the Hydrangea Hill Suite.
This suite has the most beautiful DSP but tonight I’m focusing on Misty Moonlight so I decided to use the Hydrangea Haven Bundle to showcase Misty Moonlight. I promise I’ll share some cards soon using this stunning DSP.
One of the things I love about this stamp and die bundle is the different ways you can use it. I’ve made three very simple cards today using basically the same colours and same layout, yet they look very different.
For my first card I’ve stamped the largest hydrangea stamp in Memento ink before colouring it in with my Misty Moonlight, Seaside Spray and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.
All three cards feature sentiments from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set, the Hydrangea dies, are layered on a piece of whisper white that has been embossed with the subtle embossing folder and finished of with a bow of Misty Moonlight, Whisper White and silver bakers twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
Card Two uses the same main stamp, this time coloured by using the background stamps that match (they are the dark solid stamps in this set). The Misty Moonlight stamp for the flowers has been stamped off three times and the Mossy Meadow for the stem and leaves just two times.
How adorable is this little tag die – there are five stamps that fit into this tag. Love, love, love this!
My final card uses just dies from the Hydrangea dies.
Can you see how the dies on the flower lift up? I’ve added some of the Seaside Spray Pastel Pearls to finish this square card off.
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have created with Misty Moonlight today. Click on the links below to see what they’ve made.
Next Tuesday we’ll be showcasing one of the Neutrals: Mossy Meadow. We hope you can join us all then.
