Climbing Orchids and Jar of Love

My card today is the card I made for my Mother’s birthday. I used the beautiful Climbing Orchids stamp set, with the branch from Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the jar stamp from “Jar of Love”. The orchids were stamped with Melon Mambo ink and then colored with the Aquapainter. I really like the watercolor effect!

Climbing Orchids #2

I couldn’t resist making another card with the new Climbing Orchids bundle! For this one, I used the new In-Color “Berry Burst”and Rich Razzleberry. I stamped the orchids on the new Color Theory Designer Series paper. This paper has a nice color gradient from light to dark (on the same sheet), so my flowers look even more real!

For the background, I used Soft Sky card stock, stamped with Timeless Texture stamp set to add some ink splatters and shading at the bottom. I used the same color ink to make it more subtle.

New Climbing Orchids stamp set and Framelits

One of my new favorite stamp sets and matching framelits is called “Climbing Orchids“. I loved how you can make 2 different sizes of orchids and that you can make them in 3D.

Here’s the bundle (save 10% when you buy the stamp set and Framelits together):
