Oh My Ombre

Style Watch {Summer Trends}

Ombre is a very hot summer trend. It’s defined as a gradient or graduation of color. Ombre is everywhere and it’s high time that I gave it some attention with my paper crafting supplies…

Oh My Ombre: Style Board Inspiration

Clear and Simple Stamps offers a huge array of Hybrid Inks with shades of every color in the rainbow, making it easy to stamp a gradient of any color.

For today’s project, I chose to combine embossing with ombre shades to create an elegant trio of cards. To package the cards, I tried out a new (to me) technique using my Copic markers to create ombre satin ribbon. And since CSS sells their Copics in trio sets you automatically get a gradient of color with every set.

I absolutely LOVED how it turned out and I hope you do too…

Until later Loverlies,
