Stamp Off Ombre Color Theory

Happy Friday!  Thank you so much for joining
Susan, Buffy and I for some challenge fun.
 This week, we are working with an Ombre challenge.
There are so many options for creating an ombre effect,
that it will be fun to see how each of us deliver!
I elected to go with an easy approach, using NEW
Stampin' Up! products that will be available next
Thursday (June 1st).  The ombre layer was created
with the NEW Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack
on page 187 of the 2017-18 catalog.  This paper features
sheets with 4 colors, in a variety of ombre patterns.
The flower was created with the new Daisy punch,
found on page 207.  This punch coordinates with a set,
or can be used on its own.   The sentiment comes from
Flourishing Phrases, which thankfully will be available
in the new catalog!   I like this Color Theory paper stack
because it allows for quick card creation, while 
allowing for a striking color technique.

Now please click over to Buffy and Susan's blogs,
to check out their Ombre projects.

Pun Intended Snappy Fun Fold

With a retiring catalog, we also have retiring 
hostess sets.  Pun Intended, on page 200 is one
of my favorites because it works well for guys and gals.
I also enjoy the puns, that are such a prominent
part of this set.

I used DSP from the Festive Birthday (p 173) pack to
decorate this fun fold card.

 The Stitched Shapes Dies were used to cut out the
focal image, which was layered on a 
Layering Circles Framelits (p 193) scalloped circle.

This is another Occasions Mini bundle, that is

So Detailed Thinlits Dies, on page 52 of the Occasions catalog, enable lots
of different closures and belly bands. 

This card also uses the Hexagons Dynamic Textured
Impressions Embossing Folder, on page 47.  This
Embossing folder will be available in the 
upcoming catalog.
