Ombre Background on Cards

Quick and Easy Cards with Scrapbook.com

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing some quick and easy cards using some products from Scrapbook.com. I’ll be using a stencil, paper pads, dies, and ephemera to make quick cards. I will also show you how to make an ombre background for a card using the the Scrapbook.com Roses paper pad. This paper pad is full of beautiful pinks, reds, and corals.

Check out my YouTube video to see how I made my cards.

For this card, I used the Scrapbook.com Metallic Rose Gold ink on the Scrapbook.com Rose Bloom stencil. The ink pad matches perfectly with the Scrapbook.com Roses cardstock which I used for my card layer. I added Scrapbook.com Silver Pops of Color to the center of the roses. Finally, I added the Scrapbook.com Love word die to finish the card.

For my next set of cards, I used the Waffle Flower Angled Stripe Panel Die to create ombre backgrounds for my cards. The Roses cardstock from Scrapbook.com was perfect to create an ombre of pinks and reds. Just by adding a word die and/or ephemera, you can make a quick card.

Triple Circle Slimline Card using FingerPrint2Stamp

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a slimline shaker card that I made using some fun products from The Stamps of Life. For this card, I used the FingerPrints2Stamp set and the Triple Circle Slimline Drop-in die set.

The Triple Circle Slimline Drop-in die set works with the Rounded Slimline Card die set and the Slimline Card die set to cut the background out of the paper to put on the front of a slimline card. Using this drop-in makes it easy to turn a regular card into a shaker card.

I also used the Fingerprint2stamp set. This is such a fun set. It includes stamps of various images — fish, dog, cat, bear, football, elephant, and more. Just put your fingerprint in an ink pad and then put your finger to the paper to fill in the inside of the stamp…so fun!

Circle Dots Stencil Birthday Card

LisaMears_CircleDotStencil_Logo

Hello! Today I am sharing a fun birthday card that I made using the Circle Dots stencil from The Stamps of Life. In addition to the stencil, I also used the pinatas2stamp and matching dies.

I started with a piece of powered sugar cardstock cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. To create the fun background, I placed the stencil on top of the cardstock and ink-blended the following color inks — cantaloupe, kiwi, seaglass, and sunshine.

Using Spectrum Noir Finesse Noir Black ink, I stamped the piñata image onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock and colored it with my Copic markers. I selected Copic markers that matched closely to the inks that I used for the background. The die cut the piñata with the piñata shadow die from the Pinanta2Stamp dies and adhered it with dimensional foam to the front of the card. I also used the Pinanta2Stamp dies and die cut the star shapes out of the cardstock colors –  sunshine, kiwi, and seaglass. I adhered the star pieces to the centers of the circle dots stencil on the card layer.

I stamped the sentiment with Licorice ink directly onto the background. The sentiment is from the Pinanta2Stamp stamp set. I adhered cantaloupe epoxy dots to the middle of the stars.

The entire card layer was adhered to a piece of cantaloupe cardstock cut to an A2 size card base which measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Supplies:

  1. Inks – Cantaloupe, Kiwi, Seaglass, Sunshine,
