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!

The Hydrangea Haven Bundle includes the Hydrangea Haven Stamp Set and the Hydrangea Dies. There are so many different ways to use this set.

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.

The smaller Basic White panel has been coloured in Gorgeous Grape using the blending brushes. Linen Thread and Basic White Bakers Twine are wrapped around the blended panel and Fresh Freesia embellishments from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in the hydrangea.

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!
