Happy Sunday friends! Special thanks to our friends at Concord & 9th for collaborating on this exciting celebration stamp set, Hello You. I am a sucker for brush strokes style stamp sets for their versatility and ability to add that watercolored/painted look so quickly and easily. In addition to the great "painted" or "brush stroke" images in this set, there are some fantastic greetings that can be mixed and matched for different occasions. The Hello You Stamp Set will be available while supplies last.
For my cards today, I'm used brush stroke images from Hello You to create ombre backgrounds with Simon Says Stamp dye inks! Just look at all that inky goodness! This design would be fantastic to duplicate many times to create a set of cards to give as a gift!
For each stamped strip, I started with a brush stroke image from the Hello You Stamp Set. I stamped the image repeatedly with different ink colors, forming an ombre background.
Each border was die cut with a Simon Says Stamp Scallop Stitches Die along both long side giving a beautiful decorative edge.
Green Leaf and Surf Blue cardstock panels were embossed with the new STAMPtember Cora Texture Embossing Plate. I love embossed backgrounds for adding interest to the background but not overwhelming the other elements. The ombre stamped borders were adhered to each background as shown.
Each card was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in either Simply White/Key Lime/Woodland Green or Simply White/Sea Breeze/Navy Blue.
