orange you glad...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a little card that I made for a few challenges:  AAA Cards ("Orange U Glad UR CAS), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (a little texture) and Freshly Made Sketches (sketch).


I'm trying to get outside my comfort zone when it comes to buying stamps and buy sets that are a bit more trendy and fun.   That effort led me to buy the Reverse Confetti stamp set "Fresh 'n Fruity" along with the matching Confetti Cuts dies.  The current AAA challenge was the opportunity I needed to finally use the set.  To make my orange I inked up the solid orange image using Memento Tangelo.  I added a second layer by partially inking up the polka dotted orange image using Stampin Up! Pumpkin Pie.  Some leaves were cut and stamped and added to the orange.  I stamped the sunburst image from the SU! set Kinda Eclectic using Tangelo.  I partially embossed the top of my cardstock piece using a Stampin Up! stars embossing folder (my little bit of texture) and then added the strip of patterned paper (from BasicGrey).   The sentiment were stamped and I was done.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Pumpkin Pie; PP:  BasicGrey; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti and Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Embossing folder: Stampin Up!
