Ombre Challenge – CYCI#156

This is an exciting challenge we have at Can You Case It? CYCI#156 this week. It’s all about ombre. There are a couple of ways you can participate in this challenge – you choose four different colours and create them in ombre style. Or you can do what I did choose one colour and step it out into shades to create the ombre style.


Here is my card. It’s a sneak peak too.

When I saw this challenge come up, this new suite of products coming in the Annual Catalogue starting June, was THE perfect intro to it.

Welcome to Colour Theory suite. There are stamps, dies and embellishments that make up this collection of products but the yummiest part is the Ombre paper. There are three designs and comes in four different colours. One of those colours is a new In Colour – Berry Burst.

There is the blended gradient – where all the colours blend seamlessly, the blocked gradient – where there is a distinct block of colour and the paint swatch – where the blocks of colours are separated by white space. Love, Love, Love them!

Here I have used the paper that looks like a paint swatch. It’s so cool don’t you think? I have used the Colourful Seasons stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Layers thinlit dies. I have used the generational stamping technique, when stamping some of the blossoms, to help create more of the ombre effect.

This is going to be one cool set and I’ll bring you more of that soon, I’m sure.

Until then, I can’t wait to see what you create with this Ombre challenge. Head over to our Facebook Challenge group and draw inspiration from our talented Design Team members. Then add your entry to the comments of the Ombre challenge post. This challenge ends midday, Saturday, 13th (AEST).

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
