Challege #42: Use Orange

Welcome to another Use It Tuesday, Users!

Today, we're turning our sights on some color inspiration. Some of you will love it, some of you will hate it. Either way, we want to see the beautiful creations you make with it. 
This week's challenge is "Use Orange".
***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday November 2, 2012. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE042 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

This week, our "Orange" theme may make you think about Halloween, but our Design Team is here to show you the versatility and year-round appeal of this great color:

Caroli has been hoarding these Imaginisce paper and diecuts since early this year. She says it almost hurt her heart to have to cut into it..."orange" you glad she did?

Haven also inked up an orange layout, using leftovers from an animal cracker paper stack that she bought last year and used for a scrapbook album....the very one in this layout! She also pulled the wild orange ribbon and orange cardstock from her stash for this one.

Stephanie doctored up her layout with Bo Bunny Grease papers she's had for almost two years....and it didn't even put a dent in her stash!

Marjolaine found an unfinished mini album project in her stash and returned to finish it up after a year. We probably all have one or two unfinished projects in our stash!

Danielle pulled out all her Bella Blvd leftovers and picked out the orange pieces. Then, she used those pieces to showcase her National pride, with a layout about Holland's littlest and most adorable soccer fan...Go Holland!

Victoria made this super adorable card using an orange garage sale find from over a year ago and two un-inked stamps. Super cute!

And, not to forget the upcoming "Orange" holiday, here's some Halloween inspiration too:

Cathy put her scissors to work cutting out these cool labels from some Halloween themed paper stacks she bought last year and never used. The black twine is also a forgotten treasure from her stash.

Heather pulled out some leftover scraps from her Halloween projects last year, as well as some barely used orange embossing powder. The bow also came from....somewhere....and was rescued from her "spare" pile to complete this card.

Tess found this bewitching un-inked stamp in her collection, along with an un-inked sentiment to match. And that was after she blew the dust and cobwebs off her orange cardstock.

Finally, Tammy shows us orange can  put us in the Christmas spirit too. She pulled almost everything out of her stash for this one, including those chipboard snowflakes that were then covered with orange glitter for our color challenge.

It's your turn! Show us your orange and Use It!!
