Simple Sunday #9 – Hydrangea Heaven

Welcome to my new Sunday series, affectionately known as Simple Sunday! The aim of this series is to showcase projects using minimal supplies, ideal for the beginner crafter or someone new to Stampin’ Up! Each project is a white card base with a 3×3 panel decorated using a single stamp set or die set. This week’s project features a stamp and die bundle that you can earn during Sale-a-Bration between 5th January and 28th February.

This bundle is absolutely gorgeous and brings back memories of gardening with my Grandma as a young girl. At a car boot sale, my Grandma and I found a beautiful Hydrangea plant being sold which had the bluest, most gorgeous flowers. The soil conditions in my garden at home meant it remains the most beautiful bright blue for years to come. Whilst I didn’t use blue for the flower head on this card, I feel Gorgeous Grape is a beautiful substitute.

For the flower itself, I used the dies – aside from the sentiment there is no ink used to bring this together. I love how the flower head die gives you the petal detail allowing you to add some dimension to your projects.. and I’m in love with the suite as a whole.

What other colours would you use for the flower heads?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
