Hydrangea Haven Bundle in Double Color

I recently saw a card sketch from another independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Connie Stewart. It used a square piece of designer series paper (DSP) that was cut in half on an angle. A single square of DSP will make TWO cards!! I immediately wanted to try this with one of my favorite DSPs from the January-June mini catalog, Hydrangea Hill. I grabbed my pack of paper, decided on a design (a difficult decision with so many gorgeous patterns to choose from), and cut myself several 4.25" squares. Then I simply cut the square in half on the diagonal and used one piece on the top of a card and the other piece on the bottom of a card. The cards shown below feature Purple Posy as a card base with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape for the hydrangeas. The leaves are Old Olive stamped on Basic White or Old Olive card stock. On the card with two hydrangeas I used Stampin' Blends to color basic pearls to match. The larger pearls are part of the Hydrangea Hill Suite. 

Once I had these cards made I decided to try the same design in another color! I grabbed Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight, and Night of Navy. I really can't decided which set of cards I like better. Hydrangeas are beautiful in any color.

The sad part of these cards is the use of two 2019-2021 In-Colors: Purple Posy and Seaside Spray. These colors will be retired at the end of month. I will really miss Seaside Spray.

Thanks for reading my post. Which color card set is your favorite??? Let me know in the comments.
