Ombre Fringing…

OMG – Ombre Fringing!  This has become my most favourite thing (for now!)! I won’t waffle on too much today as I have two cards to share so lots of pictures!  Read on for craftiness:

The first card I made with it was this cutie below for a friend of the girls:

Stampin' Up! - Ombre Fringing - Fringe Scissors - Stamping With Val - Valerie Moody; Indepedent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. X

  • I used card in three shades of pink – Pretty in Pink (retired), Strawberry Slush and Melon Mambo.
  • Each strip of card (2 in each colour) is 10.5cm wide and 4.5cm high.

  • I cut fringes along all 6 pieces of card
  • Starting with a card base in the palest colour (Pretty in Pink), stick one of the darkest fringes to the bottom.
  • Add the next layer of fringes approx. 1.5cm above the first.
  • Now repeat up the card using next the medium shade (Strawberry Slush) and then finally the lightest; Pretty in Pink.

  • I’ve added a Pretty in Pink stitched ribbon bow and a great sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday – love it!

So excited by the success of this card, I just had to do another one and share it with my customers:

  • The three shades on this card are; Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay

  • The base card is Pool Party.
  • A Baker’s Twine bow this time along with a sentiment in Basic Black ink.

  • For this card, I was also showcasing the Spiral Flower Die (which is amazing, by the way!).  We cut 2 from Bermuda Bay, made them damp by spritzing with water and scrunched them up.  We then unscrunched them and rolled both together to create a nice fat flower.  We hot-glued it to the card along with a black Little Leaves die cut.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s cards and I’ve inspired you to try a little Ombre Fringing.

Hope you find time to get creative this weekend,
