Climbing Orchid – Three ways

The Climbing Orchid stamp set and matching Orchid Builder framelits are so beautiful and are currently available in a discounted bundle at 10% off in the current annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue. Whilst I was excited about using these stamps, I was also a little overwhelmed with the number of stamps in this set! You can achieve so many looks and can also keep layering the Orchid petals to create a real 3D effect.  

As you can see, I created three ‘stepped up’ cards with this stamp set and the possibilities are endless.  To create my orchids, I firstly clear heat embossed them on shimmery white cardstock.  I then painted over the heat embossed images so that the colours could blend together. I love the colour combination of berry burst, fresh fig and lemon lime twist.  The watercolour backgrounds offset the orchids beautifully, but I also love the simplicity of the floating orchids on crumb cake background.  With this set, anything goes but if you love orchids as much as I do, it’s a must!
