Video : Easy Ombre Background & Giveaway!

Today’s video has a very easy technique.  I wanted to create an Ombre style background and thought it would make sense to share how I did it with you.

I created this card for Altenew and used the Print Blocks Stamp Set in the background, you can watch the process in the video linked below.

I just ‘had’ to use the Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily and I can’t wait to try this out in some different colour combos.  I did add a simple sentiment from the Thinking of You Stamp Set (it’s a classic)!

  1. Gorgeous card! That flower is lovely and the way you colored it and arranged it makes all the more beautiful! You make it look so easy to line it up, too.

  2. Your card is stunning ! I love the soft background, it’s a fantastic idea. And this layering stamps is incredible, your flower looks so real…..

  3. Thanks so much for giving us the perfect colors for the Peruvian !ily. I love this flower and bought the set soon after it came out. I played with it but was not happy with the colors so will be trying the ones you used. Your color scheme is perfect!

  4. I so enjoy watching your videos. This Peruvian Lilly is such a stunner. I love the color scheme you chose for it, and that you stamped leaves as well as die cut them. I really like that affect. Great design as always.

  5. I recently purchased this stamp set but haven’t inked it up yet. This is a beautiful colour combination that I will have to try and match with other inks, as I don’t have very many of the Altenew inks yet. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Oh Therese, your gorgeous flower just pops with that beautiful and soft background.
    These layering stamps are amazing, love the colors on your card.
    Thank you for sharing this video and for the chance to win.

    PS. Thank you for answering my question about the MISTI magnets, 😉

  7. I love the blending on the stamp idea. You always have the best, most ingenious ideas that seem to simplify things. Beautiful card, again.

  8. Stunning. The background sets off the flower perfectly. I love Peruvian Lillies and I have some almost the same colour as your card, in a vase on my kitchen bench right now!

  9. Oh Therese, your colour choices are perfect for this lilly. I havent got the background block stamps, but
    now that i have seen how you have used them, i can see them in my next order. This flower is so realistic, i think we call it a Princess Lilly here, Altenew have done a fantastic job with this stamp set. I love the build a flower sets also.
    Great job, thanks for sharing

  10. I love the layering of flowers from Altenew but I’m starting out and find it expensive to get the inks. I love the card you made. It was enjoyable watching you add all the colors then suddenly it turns into this beautiful flower!!

  11. Absolutely lovely card. The Peruvian Lily — is it also called a freesia or am I just imagining they look the same. Anyway! beautiful, soft and dreamy card.

  12. Love the background, they grey really makes the bright flower pop off the front of the card. And the placement of the sentiment is so cool, I must try to do that with mine more often too!!

  13. I LOVE this stamp set. I think it’s one of the easiest layering set and it’s so pretty. Your card is just beautiful; thank you for offering more ideas

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
