MIM: Ombre Stamping

Another week, another Make It Monday. This week, Laurie shows us how to stamp our images in ombre style--rather pretty, if I do say so myself! Here is my take:
I started with a Hawaiian Shores card bases, layered it with Lawn Fawn's patterned paper, Bitty Dot Vellum Paper from PTI, a white scallopped stitched border in white using Pretty Pink Posh's die and some lace. Then, I die cue the flowers, sprigs and leaves from Cutting Garden and Inked them up with Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal for the aqua flowers and Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry Fizz for the pink ones. For the leaves, I used Lawn Fawn's Fresh Cut Grass and Memento's New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves and Cottage Ivy. The sentiment stamped in Tuxedo Black (also Memento) is from Lawn Fawn and is oh so lovely, in my opinion! Finished the card off with small butterfly's from the Make It Market Mini Kit Clipsters, Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and some white seam binding ribbon. And there you go!

Hope you're having a great week and happy Spring to all!

Also entering into the following challenges:


  1. Beautiful, love the colors you chose for the flowers! I love the font of the sentiment too, I thought maybe you had written it in yourself to stretch across the card, I am going to have to look into that stamp set!

  2. Such a pretty spring card! Love all the colors you used and the touch of sparkle! Very nice!

  3. Beautiful colors and design, Oreet! Spring for sure! Thanks for playing with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  4. WOW look at this card! Simply stunning! I love how you used all the ribbon on it and LOVE the color combination ^_^
