Simply Sunday - Black and Orange Color Challenge

Welcome to Simply Sunday with the Getting Cricky Design Team!

Today is the day that the Getting Cricky Design Team gets to show off some of the projects they have created with the wonderful stamps from K Andrew Designs.  Our challenge for today is to use the colors black and orange.  I used some of the stamps from the new Fall-O-OWeen stamp set.  Have you seen the NEW Fall-O-OWeen Stamp set from K Andrew Designs?

If you don't already own this stamp set I would suggest you click here to purchase it.  It has so many great words that you can combine to create your own phrases!

I wanted to make a birthday card for my niece, who is turning 3 just a few days before Halloween.  At first I was going to go with a Halloween themed card, but nothing was coming to me . . . then my daughter suggested Tigger, since we always joke around about how my niece LOVES to bounce, just like Tigger.  And Tigger is black and orange, so that fit for the color challenge.



It was really quick and easy to make.  I used an orange gingham check for the background, trimmed 3 different Tigger images from a Pooh and Friends paper I had, punched 3 orange squares and then used my Fall-O-Oween stamp set to stamp the words "A little treat for you" on the card.  I added some little stars for an accent.

Make sure to stop by Getting Cricky to see what the rest of the Design Team has created, and you can even enter your OWN black and orange project into the challenge.
