I spent today playing catch up since we were gone for a week visiting New York.  I made two cards for my hairstylist and one for the groomer who cuts Riley's hair. (Riley is my rescue/Therapy/READ dog). One of our neighbors went up north for the summr visitng her children and had a medical episode.  We were told she is doing well however not sure how long it will take for her to get recover.  I decided to create two get well cards-one from myself and husband and one from Riley to her dog Ernie.  Then I preceded to make one of my best friends in Virginia two birthday cards as her birthday is the 14th.  So needless to say I have been quite busy.  I will be posting these cards over the next few weeks.  Please stay tuned and take a look.  I would love to get your feedback which you can post at the bottom of the page.

The first card I am displaying is one I made for my hairstylist who happens to be a man.  I tried to keep it more masculine using blues and soft beiges.  I used the retired stamp set called Love You Sew...I acutally love this set as it has a paint brush, scissors, spools of thread and quite a few other items plus catchy phrases.

Ombre Stamping

Are you familar with the term Ombre?  Do you know that Ombre is a dyeing technique that creates soft color gradations?  I'm sure you have seen it in clothing, home goods and other areas.  But did you know that Stampin' Up! now carries three Ombre Stamp pads in Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral?  Well they do and they can be found on page 180 in the Annual Catalog.    It is the neatest way to add color not only one color but five shades of the same color.  These ink pads are designed with a dark ink on one end fading to light ink on the other end for an ombre fading effect.

Take a look at this video by Stampin'Up! showing you the three Ombre Ink Pads we now carry.
