Ombre Cards (that were NOT overlapped!)

Last weeks MIM was Overlapping Ombre. I made 2 cards for that challenge. I was ready to post them when I realized I had not overlapped the images! So, I made a new card. I like these 2 cards so here they are!

The first one uses Background Basics: Botanicals. In Scarlet Jewel. Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst and Sweet Blush (I am SO glad I am getting a new Sweet Blush pad. Mine is SHOT!)
I used my favorite Rosie Posie flowers in the corner and the sentiment is Boutique Borders Birthday on a Double Ended Banner die cut. I looks great on my Card Hanger die cut bag, HERE 

The next one is an idea I have had for a while. It is the "stamen" from Funky Florals. I used Ocean Tides, Hawaiian Shores and Aqua Mist ink. The mat is Hawaiian Shores, the stamp is from Tagged Sentiments, in Hawaiian Shores. The enamel dots are from My Minds Eye. 

So! These didn't work for the Make it Monday but they worked for me ;) A fun challenge. I make a LOT of cards so it is MUCH faster to use patterned paper. But, if I need a particular color, I now have a great technique, overlapped or not, in my arsenal!

Thank you for looking at my blog!


  1. Very sweet cards, both. Loved your stamped background.

  2. You nailed the MIM technique! I love both cards, great color combos on both. I just may have to give the ombre technique a try. Hope all is well with you.
