Orange Blooms

I'm playing along with CASology's latest challenge -- Orange.

This card was quick and easy.  I just bought this gorgeous die from memory box called Wild Blooms.  Had to put it to use right away.
  • Embossed cream panel
  • Die cut bloom image
  • Back with patterned paper
  • Add tag and embroidery floss
  • Mount on orange panel
  • Adhere to card base
Yay for quick cards and gorgeous dies!  


Stamps:   Birthday Basics (PTI)
Paper:   Orange Zest, Vintage Cream (PTI), SU! pp
Ink:   black
Other:  Wild Blooms die (memory box), Decorative Tile embossing folder (CB), orange embroidery floss

Peace LOVE & Joy

I finally got myself together enough to make a card for a challenge and get it posted before the deadline:)  This is for the current retrosketches #36 which is from an awesome card that Suzanne posted back in September.

I just loved Suzanne's card and layout and had to play along.  I decided to make a  holiday card in non-traditional colors using some patterned paper that I got for free at CHA years ago.  The ladies at the KaiserCraft booth were just handing out handfuls of 6x6 paper packs by the end of the day.  I still have a ton left.

Since I loved what Suzanne did with her scalloped panel, I used Papertrey's Edgers #3 die to cut the colorful panel.  The little bow and three circles are cut out of some glittery silver card stock from Michael's.  

Hope your week is off to a great start!


Stamps:  Bells & Boughs (PTI)
