Orchid Teddy

Today my sweet boy took an extremely long nap, and instead of doing the zillion things I *should* have been doing, I found myself in my stamp room (which, by the way, is still a disaster area...!)!! I decided to try this week's "Ways to Use It" challenge on SCS - to use Orchid Opulence on a card. I guess in the end I sort of cheated a little - although the card base is orchid, there's not a ton of orchid on this card! But there's some! I used my favorite Teddy from the Spring Mini's Bundle of Joy, and colored him in with watercolor crayons. FYI - the purple he's sitting on is Orchid Opulence - I think the crayon is a lot more vibrant than the paper! Other cardstock colors are Ballet Blue and Certainly Celery. For Teddy, I washed a piece of Ivory Naturals with celery before stamping him, and then added the additional watercoloring. None of the various white or vanilla papers looked good against the patterned paper by themselves. The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny, and I used the Canvas background and light orchid grosgrain. The "precious one" sentiment is from Cute Converse. I used the slit punch to make the scalloped edge (let me know if you want to know how to do that!).

I was going to head to the Scrapbook Expo in Austin this morning, but figured why should I pay an $8 entrance fee and probably that much again for downtown parking and spend way too much money, when I could just go up to my LSS, park & enter for free and use a gift certificate! So that's what I did! And that's where I found this Bo Bunny paper and decided it would fit this orchid challenge! Carter got to hang out with Rachel & her mommy this morning, so it was nice to be able to do a little shopping all by myself for once! :-)

Thanks for looking and happy Friday!!

  1. Oh, my, you're right! This paper matches Orchid Opulence perfectly! I love how well this orchid grosgrain matches, too. I actually really like Orchid opulence and bring it out to play every once in a while. You do the cutest things with this set!


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
