Card Creations Week challenges

I finally found some time to play and wanted to enter some of Cath's challenges tied to the current Card Creations publication.  The first one is the Ombre Challenge.

MFW Ombre challenge

I used this repeating dot pattern from a holiday stamp set by The Craft's Meow called Holiday Foundations, and 3 shades of Hero Arts ink: soft pool, tide pool, and splash.  the sentiment is also from TCM, from a set called Happy as a Lark.  The rolled roses are felt die-cuts, Die-Namics rolled roses.

My next card is for the Washi Tape Challenge:

MFW Washi challenge

I found a set of yellow and aqua washis recently at Michael's and added the yellow striped washi from Simon Says Stamp's March Card Kit.  After placing them on my white card panel, I stamped the sentiment (from The Craft's Meow Easter Blessings) and then embossed it with a Hobby Lobby butterfly embossing folder.  After adding the panel to a tide pool layering paper card base, I then added the die-cut butterfly (Cheery Lynn) and some aqua pearls.  Love these springy colors together!

  10. When I saw this blue card I actually groaned with pure delight, Lin. I haven't been able to get behind this "ombre" trend, but you got it just so I love it! Besides that, it is such a fun word to say, eh? The butterfly card is absolutely perfect -couldn't be sweeter! What a great combo of colors and images. Perfectly balanced, too.
