Orange Crush

Have you ever tried to create a card using the color orange? It's a wonderful color for Halloween, but it's hard to use any other way as I discovered! Well for this week's SCS Ways to Use It challenge, WT258, was to find ways in using orange. I combined this challenge by using Clean & Simple sketch, FTL79.

I used SU! Tart & Tangy's orange stamp. As of right now in our Valley it's citrus season...our trees our loaded with oranges, lemons, grapefruit, therefore I was inspired to use orange.
I had a set of Martha Stewart's ribbon (with adhesive) that I had been wanting to use for the longest time, and this happened to be the perfect time. One thing I've never done before was to stamp on ribbon. I used StazOn Jet Black ink.

I love how the light comes through the pierced edges of the card.

  1. Usually ,orange is not my cup of tea ,but your card is so beautiful ,that it reconsiliated me with this colour.

  2. Oh wow, this is FANTASTIC!

    Thank you so much for playing along with us this week @ Clean & Simple Stamping. :)

  3. I've created several handmade cards, but not in orange. I never imagined that a card could turn out so lovely in that color. You did a great job! :)

  4. I love the colour orange and you've used it brilliantly. What a fantastic card!

  5. I love it! What a great idea, stamping on ribbon for the sentiment flag!
