Hola Ombre Pads

Hi stampers!  I have something a little different for you today!  I have a whole grouping of cards!  I LOVE the just keep swimming set in the Occasions catalog!  I totally overlooked it at first but then I noticed the "idea" blurb for the set in the catalog.  It was designed to use with our ombre ink pads but not traditionally.  It was made for each small stamp to fit on each of the variant little ink pads!  How fun is that????

I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of the ombre pads BUT THIS,  this I can get behind. I may have ordered the two I didn't have once I really paid attention to this set!  I did a little live video over on my Facebook Page the other night to show you how to do this.  It's super fun and super easy with this 2-step photopolymer set.  I also really love the color combo they used in the catalog and based my designs off of that!  You'll want to start with the most solid stamp and the lightest color you want to use and go from there.  Check out my video if you need a visual!
 Ok, so if you watch the video, you'll see my little mistake here.  I'm kind of happy I made it because now we know ;-)  The little blob in the middle of my monster was from me stamping with too much pressure SO be careful when you ink and stamp his little eye, mouth, and legs!  I think this little guy is pretty cute!  My background is embossed with the circle embossing folder and then I just took a sponge dauber and used it to give the raised parts a bit more dimension.
Ok, so this may not have been the best color combo for this particular image :-)  Why?  Because this one kind of looks like a hot dog and bun and I'm not the only person who's said that lol!  I still think it's cute and I LOVE macarons so I'm letting it slide but from now on, I'm using non-hot dog colors!  Ha!
 This one is pretty simple and this set is also great for making a background just like I did here!  It's hard to tell from the photo, but I added some wink of stella to make my main image sparkle and shine!
My favorite is probably the gummy bear, he's so cute!  His little face is just so sweet!  This one is pretty simple and straightforward!
I hope you enjoyed this set of cards!  I had a lot of fun making them and they came together really quick with his cute set!  Make sure to follow me on FB in case I do some more live videos ;-)

And make sure you take a second look at this set and the ombre pads if you haven't already!

Happy stamping! Product List
