Video : How to Stamp an Easy Ombre Background

by Therese Calvird

Hi there! It's Therese and it's time for another card and video. I used the Block Print Stamp Set to create an easy ombre background and I'm sharing the technique in the video linked below.

Altenew - Peruvian Lily - Block Print -Therese Calvird (card video) 1 copyMy focal image is from the Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily Stamp Set and I just want to say, this flower is a beauty! My sentiment today comes from the Thinking of You Stamp Set and was stamped in Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink.

What a simply elegant card! I love that flower too. It reminds me of a former neighbour who used to grow similar flowers.

That card is gorgeous. I put the Peruvian Lily BAF on my wish list when it first came out. Now I remember why I wanted it I’ll be saving up and hope to get it soon. You always inspire me and this card is no exception.

This was a ‘had to have’ for me too, when I got back from my trip it was in my first order (but it does go out of stock pretty quick and I can see why). Thanks for visiting, Hugs Therese

Great card…like the sentiment placed vertically along your ombre background. This is a perfect setting for your colorful floral image. Thanks for sharing this card and your helpful video tutorial.

Sometimes I wonder if I’m a bit weird that I like sentiments set vertiacally, but sometimes it just feels right! Thanks for visiting, Therese
