HYCCT1517 Acorny Ombré
Hi Again Friends!!
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To HYCCT1517 Lori’s “Light Days” Challenge (to create a card using the ombré technique) and I decided to also incorporate the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSCS222 Color Challenge along with the Pals Paper Arts PPA272 Sketch Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will take the time to visit the above galleries- wonderful inspiration from all!!
To create this quick and simple card:
Using Sponge Daubers create the ombré background from the retired Irresistibly Yours Designer Specialty Paper (DSP) by sponging the colors starting at the top with Hello Honey blending in the middle withTangelo Twist and at the bottom with Cajun Craze Classic Ink.
***FYI- I also inked the retired Script background with the same colors and stamped over the panel but once I wiped off the ink with the lightly damp paper towel, it is difficult to see the background stamp in the photo.
Trim the background panel and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Tangelo Twist card base.
Stamp the acorns with Crajun Craze Classic Ink and the acorn tops with Hello Honey rolled into Tangelo Twist onto Whisper White cardstock. Use the Acorn Builder Punch to punch out all of the acorn pieces and adhere the pieces together.
Stamp the sentiment using Cajun Craze Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Tangelo Twist cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Mount the sentiment panel to the card front and add the acorns using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Adhere a few Cajun Craze Candy Dots to the acorn tops finish off the card.
Quick, easy and fun!!
