I wasn’t sure what would develop when I began today’s project. Beginning with a Blending Brush, I added Soft Succulent Ink to create an ombre effect of color on Basic White Cardstock, 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″.

Once satisfied, I used an Ornate Layers Die to cut the colored paper into five sections. Then, I glued four of the sections to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, leaving a space between the first and second sections.


The space was filled in with Basic White Cardstock, cut with another Ornate Layers Die, which provided a base for  the word “HELLO.”

Ombre Technique


To create the word, I used Playful Alphabet Dies, Foam Adhesive Sheets, and Pansy Petals Designer Paper.

First, I cut a 1″ strip of Foam Adhesive Sheet, and a 1″ strip of designer paper. Then, I peeled one side of the Foam Adhesive Sheet and adhered the designer paper to it. Next, I placed the letter dies on top of the designer paper, and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, right side up one time, and upside down a second time. Then, I carefully removed the letters from the dies, peeled the backing, and stuck the letters to the Ornate die-cut. I measured ahead of time, so I knew the letters would fit the space.

To complete my card, I fussy cut a pansy from the Pansy Petals Designer Paper, and glued it in place.


I was inspired by TGIF.
