Orange You Lovin' The Sneak Peaks!

Another day and another exciting sneak peak from Artful Inkables. This delightful set, Orange You Sweet, will be available for sell along with 3 additional new sets this Thursday. For more samples of this fun set be sure to check out the Artful Inkables blog and the blogs of the rest of the Design Team Members:
The clean, refreshing appeal of oranges (no pun intended) was the inspiration for my card. I wanted clean lines and bright colors! I started with a piece of Pumpkin Pie CS that I embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I topped that with a piece of wonderfully bright polka dot Chatterbox PP. To define the boundary between the CS and the PP, I adhered 2 pieces of Karen Foster's Scapper's Floss using a Sakura Quickie glue pen. I love to use the floss to maintain clean lines in place of ribbon. The main image is the wonderful decorative orange tree from the set. I have colored it with Copic marker and added some Pumpkin Shimmerz to the oranges themselves. I cut it out and embossed it with a rectangular Nestability and matted it with a scalloped rectangle in Night of Navy. A couple of little Pumpkin Pie grosgrain tabs, some American Craft blue brads and voila- a bright, clean look indeed! Stay tuned tomorrow for another sneak peak that has "gone to the dogs," as well as, a sketch challenge for Jacksonbelle Tuesday. I have Tuesday's post written and timed to be uploaded because I am having an epidural tomorrow for my back. Keeping my fingers crossed that the post appears when it is supposed to- lol! It's ALWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
