Orange Blossom

Hi. It's Saturday February 11th and I have a new card for you from Paint Fusion by Sheena Douglas. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to color my images. You'll find both products and more on the Crafter's Companion site. Directions are below the cards.

1. Stamp all images onto white matte coated cardstock using dark brown dye ink. Rub the flowers first with Dried Marigold and then Marmalade inks. Rub the leaves with Mustard Seed and then Peeled Paint inks. Cut out all of the stamped images.
2. For the flower circle use one of the leaves and punch out with circle punch. Punch out a larger light yellow scalloped circle and adhere together. Punch a hole for the brad and insert. Set aside.
3. Trim a yellow and blue specialty paper and use stitch punch at all sides of the blue. Layer together. Also, make strips using the same papers and use stitch punch at sides of the yellow. Layer strips together and punch holes for brads at the top and bottom and insert. Layer strips to the right side of a folded light cream textured card. Layer other pieces to the left side.
4. Mount leaves first and then the two orange flowers. Layer circles underneath white die cut. Slip stamens into flowers and leaves using small pieces of mounting tape.

Hope you enjoyed this card. Visit the other designer's cards and check out the $100 give away-the details can be found by scrolling down to two Saturday's ago.

Hi Paula ! I love this card ! So vibrant, the flowers is gorgeous ! This is the first visit to your blog, your IO entries are usually on a photo website? You asked about the Crealies Dies ( that I used on my last post (IO challenge). It's a Dutch company and Ecstasy Crafts who normally distribute Dutch card making products are not carrying it for some reason. The Crealie website is Dutch. I have family over there that look after getting me supplies ! However, these dies are available from Chocolate Baroque Stamp company in the UK who provide excellent service to N. America ! Thanks for your visits to my Blog, Cheers, Shirley
