Grapefruit Grove Colour Challenge Week 1

Hello and welcome to my weekly Colour Challenge. It’s the first Tuesday of the month which means we have a new, randomly selected, colour – the retiring In Colour, Grapefruit Grove. As always, Week 1 is monochrome and I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Under My Umbrella Stamp Set.

Grapefruit Grove doesn’t always stand out that well for whole images or sentiments on Whisper White or Very Vanilla so I decided to do it the other way round!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Grapefruit Grove cardstock and this is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Grapefruit Grove cardstock.

I have heat embossed the various floral images from the stamp set onto the card front using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A length of Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon is then attached to the card front using one of the Mini Library Clips. This layer is then adhered to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment and rain drops are also heat embossed onto Grapefruit Grove cardstock using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. The next largest die is used to cut out a piece of the Grapefruit Grove 6×6″ DSP. These two rectangles are layered together and adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
