TGIF Challenges 135 Ombré Technique

TGIF!!!! Did you all get enough to eat yesterday?? Are you an over eater like I am? I am not sure there will be any eating of left overs today because I defitely ate WAY too much! Hopefully you aren't all out Black Friday Shopping because I have an amazing card for this weeks TGIF Challenges Ombre Challenge!

I was so excited to find out that our October and November Paper Pumpkin kits were going to coordinate. The stamp set with Novembers kit is so cute and very versatile! It was perfect to pair up with my Cookie Cutter Bundle which is still available in our Annual Catalog!

This fabulous card started with a sponged ombre background using Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Soft Sky Classic Stampin' Pads. Once my background was blended to my desired look I made a quick mask using the 2 1/4" Circle Punch to create an added mask to create my igloo with our Embossing Paste. My cute little Eskimo is colored with our Stampin' Blends. I used a combination of  Pool Party and Bermuda Bay for his little snow suit, Smokey Slate for his gloves and hat and the Ivory for his face. I added some Silver metallic edged ribbon and adhered him to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. The lovely sentiment was hear embossed in Stampin' Emboss silver. My Heat Tool wasn't quite done because I went ahead used Stampin' Emboss White for the snowflakes. Both of these stamps are from this months Paper Pumpkin! A lovely matte of Smokey Slate with a Soft Sky base seemed to be just the right touch so that my ombre would pop! Of course I added a few faceted gems for a little sparkle.

You can find my full shopping list below for everything used on this card!
Happy Stamping!
