I’m thrilled to be a guest designer for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers latest Challenge #130 – Ombre. How many Ombre elements can I fit on one card? At least four as it turns out.
Stamped AltenewLayered Cupcake images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. As there are 2-3 layers for each part of the image I used AltenewGreen Meadows,Cherry Blossom and Coffee Break mini ink cubes – Ombre element 1.
Diecut with matching die.
Ink blend the three lightest Cherry Blossom inks over three pieces of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock (super easy to blend on) – Ombre element 2.
Using Concord & 9thBags and Tags die set, diecut edge of each of the pieces of cardstock.
Cut down to size for your card base.
Stamp out the banner and sentiment using Concord & 9thHere’s the Scoop stamp set.
The pole for the banners is the straw stamp in the same set and watercoloured using the same Altenew Inks listed in Image section. Perfect to add Ombre element – Ombre element 3.
Stamped Penny BlackJazzy Cats image onto paper appropriate to use with coloured pencils with VersafineNocturne ink.
Colour with Prismacolor coloured pencils. Cat – 945 Sienna Brown, 997 Beige, 944, Terra Cotta, 937 Tuscan Red, 928 Blush Pink, 1014 Deco Pink. Cello – 941 Light Umber, 946 Dark Brown, 947 Dark Umber, Black.
Fussy cut by hand.
Tip 1: When fussy cutting image by hand you can be left with the white core of the cardstock showing around the edge. Run a black marker around the outside edge of the image to hide the white. This can hide some not so perfect cutting as well.
Using Lawn FawnLittle Music Notes die set, diecut the notes out of glitter cardstock.
Diecut the music paper lines out of foiled cardstock.
Adhere the notes to the music lines with liquid glue
Place the cardbase (kraft cardstock) in a Mini Misti.
Temporarily place the image and die cuts on the cardbase.
Position the Uniquely CreativeBlock Outline sentiment where you wish to stamp it and pick up with the misti door (see Tip 2 below)
Remove image and die cuts and stamp with VersafineNocturne ink.
Tip 2: The sentiment was orignally “You Totally Rock” but this was too long for what I wanted so I cut it apart and justs used the “You Rock”. Don’t panic too much doing this…you can still use the entire original sentiment another time – the cut ends will match up.
When I fussy cut the cat image I cut off the whiskers as they would have been fiddly to cut around. To add them back into the image I just restamped the cat onto the background kraft cardstock and will adhere cutout image over the top.
Using ATG adhere background to card base.
Adhere music notes to cardbase using liquid glue.
Adhere cat over prestamped image with dimensional foam.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

I used two of the same products as Card No 1 (blog post for that card HERE) by My Favorite Things – ‘In Paris‘ stamp and die set, ‘Link Frame Oval Chains‘ die. The images are stamped with the Ripe Raspberry,Orange Zest and Gumdrop Green and coloured in corresponding colours with Prismacolor coloured pencils. The background cardstock is MFTBlue Yonder. I also applied Wink of Stella to parts of the images but doesn’t show well in photo and added a few diamantes.
I used all My Favorite Things products – ‘In Paris‘ stamp and die set, ‘Link Frame Oval Chains‘ die and ‘Mini Cloud‘ stencils. All the stamp images are coloured with Copics and ink blended with Blue Yonder for the sky and Gumdrop Green for the ground. I also applied Wink of Stella to parts of the images but doesn’t show well in photo.
I will also be entering the above card into the current Muse Challenge #251 using the inspiration card below by Vicki Dutcher. I used the general layout, the colours and three images.
