In today’s video tutorial and post I will show you how to use ombré stamping in your cardmaking. Ombré stamping works best with a stamp positioning tool such as the Stamparatus by Stampin’ Up! which is what I will be using during this video. I will be sharing tips and tricks for the best results during the video. Find a full list of supplies below.  Here’s a look at today’s card.

Stampin’ with the Stamparatus:

This is the perfect technique for the new Stamparatus because not only can you stamp the image in the background.  It’s also great to stamp the sentiment because you can use hinge step stamping to create the ombre technique.  Plus since the Stamparatus is our stamp positioning tool you can stamp the same image in the same place multiple times to create darker colors.

For the inside of the card I stamped a simple image from Mediterranean Moments in Smoky Slate.

Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonderful day.  If you need any of the supplies that you have seen in this post you can pick them up in my online store.

Happy Stampin’
