Stamping Ombre Backgrounds

Baby It's COLD outside!! The kiddos are beside themselves with excitement..SNOW is in the forecast:)

For my card today I'm playing along with PTI's Make It Monday #188: Stamping Ombre Backgrounds.   Laura Bassen shows how to make an easy OMBRE background in this week's video.

Here's my card.

I used OMBRE Backgrounds, Freshly Fallen and Wonderful Words: SNOW stamp set and Die..all from Papertrey Ink:)

PTI Inks: Spring rain, Blueberry Sky, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores

Ranger LIQUID PLATINUM embossing powder.

How about you...READY for some SNOW??

Or just create some with OMBRE!

Thanks for looking.



  1. Oh, this is beautiful! I love how you layered the sentiment diecut!

  2. LOVE how you did the ombre background with the die cut in it...fantastic card!! :0)

  3. Beautiful ombre BG, Laura. Pretty shades of blues ~ my fave colors for 'SNOW' cards :-)

  4. So pretty! I am not ready for snow, however, I do love how you added a hint of silver embossing to your SNOW die cute. Very cool!

  5. This is gorgeous Laura! Great colours and use of the ombre technique.

  6. Fantastic card!!! I love your design and the colors!!

  7. WOW - this is sooo Beautiful! LOVE your design!

  8. Beautiful card with lovely colors and details.
    AND.....I don´t want any snow EVER again in Sweden, haha!

    Have a lovely day/Gunilla

  9. Your ombre background is fabulous. You've captured the feel of falling snow, which I am NOT yet ready for.

  10. I agree, that background is awesome! And it is COLD here..not much snow yet, though!

  11. Oh so pretty! I think I'll pass on the snow and just play with some ink. Love the ombre technique.


Simply splendid to hear from you!
