Ombre Moments

You’ve seen a couple of example cards with the Enjoy the Moments stamp set. I had two guest designers that I featured along with a CASE card I did during the last Stampin’ Up! event. But I have one more for you today. This features the Oh So Ombre paper in the 2021 Spring Saleabration. That paper is so inspiring and it’s a big pack! Saleabration ends in February so get your order in soon if you want your package.

The Card

I had a couple of sources of inspiration for this card. First, a card I saw on Pinterest used a different stamp set and a slimline layout with each image stamped in the matching ink color on the ombre paper. I hadn’t considered anything but neutral earth tones for this stamp set, but something about that card just sparked this idea.

The second source was the Kaleidoscope Squares tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. I still want to do something more with that design, but this design was definitely influenced by the rotating squares that are used to create the kaleidoscope effect.

For this card, I used a base of Granny Apple Green, a layer of white just 1/8″ smaller than the card front. Then I added a 4″ square of Bermuda Bay with another layer of white, this time 1/4″ smaller. The squares of Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose, Blackberry Bliss, and Bermuda Bay that hold the images are 1-3/4″ that I cut with the Layering Squares dies. Then I cut the ombre paper squares from the lighter ends of the paper 1-5/8″. Each image was stamped so that as I rotated them around the square, the lighter portion of the paper rotated too and all the stems were in the interior corners.

I used Dimensionals to pop up the colored squares and Bermuda Bay ink for the sentiment. Lastly, I used another piece of the paper from the Oh So Ombre pack to decorate the envelope flap.

Let me know what you think of this alternative color scheme with the seed pod images.

Happy Crafting!
