Amazing You Ombré Stamped Cards

FREE White Organza Ribbon With February Host Code: H9XPKUB2


Hi Stamping Friends!

I had the opportunity to spend time with some amazing demonstrators at a leadership event over the weekend, so I'm feeling motivated & inspired!  We had some fantastic training and saw lots of samples and class ideas to really get our creative juices flowing!  I love attending events like that!  I'll be sharing some photos from the event & the displays over at my Too Cool Stampers Facebook VIP Group.

Backorder Update: So, right after I announced that White Organza Ribbon was going to be my FREE Thank You Gift for February, I found out that it was going into "non-orderable" status due to an extended backorder. Stampin' Up! is expecting more to be on hand around February 26, so I think we'll still be OK.  Just wanted to give you all a heads-up that that ribbon is not available for a little while.  Other notable items on backorder are Basic Rhinestones, available approximately February 26, as well as the Clear & Glitter Epoxy Shapes and Memories & More Petal Passion Card Pack available around February 19.

Amazing You Ombré Stamped Cards

I love how Stampin' Up! is offering some higher level options for Sale-a-Bration this year, and I especially love how two of the selections coordinate!  The Level 1 Amazing You stamp set is so fun on it's own, but combine it with the Level 2 Celebrate You Thinlits and you have an awesome, coordinating bundle!  Remember, you can select a Level 1 for FREE with a $50 order and a Level 2 with a $100 order.  For details, see the Sale-a-Bration Flyer.
Amazing you ombre - you are amazing
Background Basics—I created a vertically-folded card base from Island Indigo cardstock for this card.  The stamped background is a 4" x 5-1/4" layer of Whisper White.

Ombré Stamping—It's easy to get this cool ombré stamped look!  I inked up image with Island Indigo ink and lined up the wood-mount block with the upper right corner of the Whisper White layer to stamp the first word.  Then, I lined up the top of my wood block with bottom of the line of letters in the word, not the bottom of the "Z" and "G," and stamped again without re-inking.  I repeated that one more time for the lightest word.

Background Accents—I adhered a 1-1/4" x 5-1/4" strip of the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper, another Level 1 Sale-a-Bration selection, next to the words, then tied some of the 3/8" Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Sale-a-Bration Pack around the card front.  Isn't it cool that all those Sale-a-Bration items look so lovely together?!
Wonderful Words—I die-cut the large "amazing" word using the Celebrate You Thinlits with Silver Glimmer Paper.  It's mounted with Multipurpose Glue, lightly dabbed on the back and held in place for 30 seconds. I finished up by stamping the "you are simply" words from Amazing You in Island Indigo ink onto Whisper White, then hand-cutting the words with Paper Snips and popping them up with Mini Dimensionals.
Amazing you ombre - amazing you 
Too Cool—My alternate version begins with a Calypso Coral, horizontally-folded card base.  This time, the "amazing" is ombré stamped in Bermuda Bay and I used a coordinating Bubbles & Fizz DSP along the bottom.
