Friendship Blossoms Card

Time again for another Use It Tuesday challenge! I am really happy to be using some of my stash.

This week's challenge is "Warm It Up: Use Red, Orange and/or Yellow".

Here are my hoarded supplies:

The piece of paper is from a monthly kit I used to subscribe to at least three years ago. The rub ons were purchased at a Stampin' Up garage sale last April. The flowers were part of a 7x7 scrapbook kit I purchased in 2007 for my niece, and the ribbon was purchased from a scrapbooking store in 2009 before they closed for good. I had completely forgotten about these items, they were all sitting in my orange and pink folder. It shows how often I use those colours!

Here is the finished card:

I placed the candy stripe paper on an orange card base, then added the flowers. I rubbed a sentiment on to some orange paper, and rounded the edges to give it some interest. Then I added the ribbon to break up the elements.

Thanks for taking me out of my comfort zone and making me use orange! I think this card will be finding a new home very soon, it is so cheery and bright.

Supplies used:

Creative Memories: Simply Beautiful paper, Carrot cardstock, 7x7 Family album kit, corner rounder, 12" Rotary trimmer with straight and scoring blades.

Stampin' Up: Loop To Loop rub ons.

Making Memories: Animal Crackers Trims.

K and Company: 12 x12 Urban Rhapsody Candy Stripe paper.


  1. Wonderful card, love how you used the colors from the challenge. And a great use of your stash!
    Thank you for joining us at Use it Tuesday and I hope to see you again!

  2. You did a great card with your hoarded supplies. Rub ons are always the hardest (for me anyway) to use up. Thanks for joining our challenge this week at Use It Tuesday.
