Hello Stampers & Crafters
Today’s card features one of our hostess sets A Whole Lot of Lovely. I love this stamp set it is so cute and versatile. See what I mean. It has some great sentiments in the set. So that you can share a whole lot of lovely thoughts to thank someone for an act of kindness or just for being fabulous. The stamps are sized to fit our circle punches for easy cutting.
The card base for this card is done with our new Thick Whisper White and is cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make a standard A2 size card. The strip of DSP is from the One Sheet Wonder Video I posted last week. You can click on the link watch that video and download the free PDF instructions sheet.
The small flower stamp in the set makes a perfect subject to create the Ombre effect with. It looks so hard but the hardest thing about the entire process is lining it up correctly. I start in the top middle and line everything up from there. The next row lines up on both side of the first image and you build it down from there. Don’t forget to stamp off once you start your next color (or you could always use a lighter color ink) I prefer to use the same color and just stamp off once for the medium hue, and twice for the lightest hue. But, also this way there is no change in color temperature, or hue and the tonal value is correct.
I am going to miss both Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey after June. They have became two of my favorite colors, and they pair so well with Old Olive.
I hope that you give this card a try if you find yourself in a pinch. You could easily change it up to meet any occasion. Thanks for dropping by and I will see you tomorrow. Remember, if you need any of the supplies for this card you can pick them up 24/7 from my online store. You can find a list of the products used at the bottom of this post.
