Guest Designer for Addicted to CAS Challenge #198


Hello there.  I’m excited to be back today guest designing (GD) at Addicted to CAS (ATCAS) for their challenge #198 - Ombré.



My sister needed a card for a friend who moved away to the other side of the country.  Her friend’s favourite colour is purple and my favourite way to use ombré is on die cut sentiments, so this is what resulted.


I took the opportunity to use a never before used (NBUS) stamp set called Rain or Shine from Reverse Confetti.  Stamped the bunny image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Xpress It cardstock, coloured it with Copic markers (V15, V12, V01, V000, V0000, C3, C1, C00), then die cut it out with the coordinating die.  The sentiment from SugarPea Designs Everyday Sentiments was white heat embossed on black cardstock.


Next, took a scrap of Bristol paper and ink blended Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet distress inks (DI) to create the ombré.  Covered the piece with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with clear glitter embossing powder for some sparkle before die cutting it with the Vintage Varsity Alphabet letters from Memory Box.  Die cut the letters again from black cardstock to offset for a drop shadow.  Finally blended Peacock Feathers DI on a stitched Bristol panel from my stash then assembled the card.  Added white pen details to finish. 


I want to thank the ATCAS team for having me GD.  For more inspirations from the design team, head on over to the blog post HERE.  Thank you for visiting.

What a sweet card and the ombre look on the sentiment is so pretty. It's wonderful with facetime, zoom and computer that friends can stay in touch no matter where they are.
