Well, I made my first card with the Climbing Orchid Bundle! Woo Hoo! I am such an Orchid fan, that I had to have this set, but have just now been experimenting with it.
I started out with a very simple card that was inspired by so many Pinterest pages. Thanks to all who post, and I want to apologize for not writing down the name of the person whose card I took my idea from. Also, wanted to let you all know that Bronwyn Eastley of Addinktive Designs has done some fabulous research and gives wonderful suggestions as to color combos of Orchids. I was absolutely in awe of how many color combos using Stampin' Up! inks to make gorgeous Orchids. That is my next goal. I have really enjoyed watercoloring and blending inks lately so I am truly looking forward to making more beautiful flowers.
Look for more orchids and other flowers as I continue my "Blooms for the Summer" series. If you would like to make the card above or any of the flowers I will be featuring or have featured, just click on one of the supplies that you may need and it will take you to my shopping site. I am more than willing for you to CASE my cards, but please as always give credit where credit is due. We all have such creative minds going for us, it is nice to acknowledge where your inspiration came from. Even if you copy it exactly – most of us don't mind if we are mentioned.
