Ode to Orange the Stampin’ Up! Way

Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango and Calypso Coral can really turn up the volume in your papercrafting.  Today’s cards were created by others and either given to or shared with me.  In turn, I wanted to inspire you with their talent and bright (“orange”) ideas!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Brian King (a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals), combined Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie (above photo).  A bold move with brilliant results.  Note how he flipped the Ornament Keepsakes stamps to create hot air balloons. Clever!

Demonstrator Tracy Baird (also a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals), sent me this striking and colorful card.  I love how she embossed the whole thing with the Stampin’ Up! Chevron Embossing Folder.

Marge Wong shared this card front with me in a swap.  I’m a fan of her combination of bright colors and simple details.

Sue Smedley swapped this sweet cupcake card front with me created with the Stampin’ Up! Cupcake Builder Punch.  Calypso Coral looks so rich and festive.

The “eyes” have it.  Edna MacCarter shared this card front with me at a Southwest Stampers meeting.  The embossed spider web is defined with black ink.  Boo-tiful.

Linda Smith isn’t afraid to play with color.  She mixed Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight  for this versatile and pretty card front.  Each flower center is accented with a touch of glitter.
