I recently participated in two different swaps and used the same Climbing Orchid bundle for both. This bundle features the Climbing Orchid Photopolymer stamp set. The Climbing Orchid Stamp Set gives a unique ability to build up orchids with as many different pieces as you see fit. This set is classy and timeless and is ideal for both cards and 3D projects. It includes 28 photopolymer stamps. Also in the bundle is the Orchid Builder Framelit Dies that consists of 12 dies. Create die-cut accents in seconds with Framelits dies and the Big Shot. Framelits’ open design allows you to place them where you want for precise cutting. Make multi-layered accents for cards or tags. You can order the Climbing Orchid stamp set and/or the Orchid Builder Framelit Dies, but when you order them bundled together, you save 10% off the purchase price, which is always a great idea! Here is a close up of the stamps and the dies:
I thought I’d share the cards so you can see how with the addition of an embellishment and switching colors you can create a variety of cards from with the same stamp set, especially this bundle. You can create three different orchids, depending on your preference! The first card features Sweet Sugarplum watercolor background, pearl accents and shows one version of the orchids you can make with the bundle. Also, in both cards, instead of stamping the branch image from the Climbing Orchid stamp set, I chose to die cut the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlit Dies instead. I used Chocolate Chip as my card base, Sweet Sugarplum as a layer and then I watercolored Sweet Sugarplum with an Aqua Painter on Whisper White for the card background. I stamped the orchid images in Rich Razzleberry with Early Expresso accents and sentiment on the card front. Supplies for this project are:
The second project features a very similar layout, but with a differently patterned orchid (from the same bundle) and a different color palate. I used Island Indigo as the card base, a layer of Pool Party and I watercolored Pool Party on Whisper White for the card front. I stamped a different orchid image in Dapper Denim and again accented and stamped the sentiment in Early Expresso. I added Gold Metallic Thread and a basic jewel for some sparkle. This is just one simple example of the variety you can get from a single stamp set even with very little change in the layout of your project. There’s also another orchid image in the stamp set that isn’t featured here, so if you love orchids, this is the stamp set for you! I hope you enjoyed viewing them as much as I enjoyed making them!
