Sarah Berry Stampin’ Up! UK Independent Demonstrator | Stunning Snowflakes with the Ombré Blends Technique
This is the second card I designed for my Coffee & Card session a week last Wednesday. I’m a huge fan of Stampin’ Blends and I wanted to create a stunning ombré effect using them on a Christmas card. I selected the wonderful snowflakes from the Colourful Seasons dies, because the coordinating stamp set Colorful Seasons has stamps to match.
The Ombré technique with blends is very straight forward and really stunning, just take three colours and colour all over the card. Do not be shy with this technique! Your blends can really take a good colouring in, you do not want to be light handed with this. Really add colour onto the card stock, flood it and let the colour absorb into the card. Then quickly, before the first colour dries out, start the second colour, then the third. The more consistent and quicker you are the better for this.
It’s really effective when you add some quick die cuts onto of it isn’t it? I’m really keen to have another go with another set of colours, it’s so much fun!
If you take a look at my video you can see me in action making this card from start to finish. I hope you enjoy my video, if you did please do subscribe to be notified of my future videos. If you have any questions, please get in touch I’m here to help!

BEHIND THE SCENES
I received this special item in my order last week, but I’m not sure I can send him back! It’s Adam! He does love it when I receive a giant box for him to disappear into. One day he will grow up to be too big to fit into one of my boxes. For now, he’s a perfect fit! Never grown up Adam please!
