PTI Countdown Day 4...

It's Day 4 of the June Release Countdown and today's group post is going to be FUN!  I love love this set and I have a couple of cards to share.  Our challenge was to create 2 cards.  One using the Ombre set just for that...an ombre background.  The next card was to be made using an image in a different way than intended.  


This first card uses Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush.  I stamped the image 5 times and then cut it out just so the ends of the image would be cut down.  I matted it with a with background.  then I popped it up on another piece of white card stock and then....attached all that on to a white card base. I love all the layers and the popped up section.  It is fun for a little dimension.  Last, I added in a sentiment from the new Wet Paint dies.....I may have squealed a little when I saw these dies in the box!  LOVE!


This next card is super CAS and so easy!  I used one of the ombre images for what I thought would like cute little hills....


I added in a sentiment from Topiary Trio and then the little flowers and stems from an older set called  Just Smile.  Easy peasy!


I can't wait to see all the other Ombre cards.  Here are some stops to make to see more using this fun new set...

  9. Love both cards.

  10. I really liked both of your cards...the simplicity of the first with the obmre background and wet paint cut. The second card is so simple and yet so charming. You've got me looking up the flowers in the older set. Thanks!

  12. Love these, I love that you used that little banner for grass!

  13. Scrolling down, I liked the first card using Ombre Builder, then came to the simplicity of the second card Using the Topiary sentiment. I really like the fonts in this set. Good work.
