Climbing Orchids

My parents have grown orchids since before I was born  So when I saw the Climbing Orchids stamp set in the new catalog, I knew I would have to get it. The orchids in this stamp set are Phalaenopsis or 'moth orchids'.  They are probably the most popular orchid sold, you can usually find them at your local grocery store.  Most orchids are epiphytes.  This means they don't grow in soil, but get their nutrients from water and air. In tropical areas, you will find orchids growing outside on trees. Ok, that's enough orchid facts for today. 😊   How about seeing some cards made with this gorgeous set?

This card is quick and easy. I stamped the orchids 
in Powder Pink and the Sheet Music in Early
Espresso.  I also used the new Ruffled textured 
embossing folder.

For this card I used the coordinating
framelit to cut out the orchids and buds. 
I stamped the orchids in Rose Red on 
So Saffron card stock. I used the Petal 
Burst embossing folder for the background.
I got this idea from Robin Messenheimer. 

This one is stepped up a little more. I used the
coordinating framelits to cut out pieces of the
orchids and then assembled them on the card. 
They were stamped in Peekaboo Peach and I
used Chocolate Chip for the sentiment & branches.
The background paper is from the Wood Textures
Designer Series Paper Stack. 

I had so much fun creating with this bundle.  I can't wait to send one of these cards to my parents - I know they will love it!
