Ombre Die Cut Hearts

Ombre Die Cut

Hi All!

I thought I would get one more metallic card in before the end of the month! I’ve had this stacked hearts die for some time and have only used it once (on this card). So, I pulled it from my stash to use it again. I’ve had some trouble with getting a good impression with the ombre ink pads (especially the ones with different colors), so I thought I would try it on paper rather than a stamp. Wow, so much easier! I did, however, find a way to get a good impression with a stamp after some practice, which I will show you in another video. 🙂

My goal for the background was to create a painted roller look – like you’re painting a wall in your house, except sideways. To do this, I inked direct to paper with the ink pad. I purposely used a light hand to show the swiping. Here is a close-up:

    I remember that other card you made some time ago using that same hearts die. I liked it then and I like this one now. I had to laugh at you having to put on your glasses. One day you’ll need glasses and even a magnifying glass sometimes to do detail work. Something to look forward to. Ha! Ha!

    It’s funny – it started slow, but then it declined quickly! I can see myself in the next 10 years with headlamp with magnifying glass attached – lol.

      Darlene, I received a jeweller’s magnifying glass on a head band from a friend when his mom passed away (we used to do crafts at her house) so I wear that AND my glasses!!! I only got glasses 3 years ago at age 50! Anyway, I look like a goof but whatever works right? Hahaha

      Love this card, very unique and it does look like a paint roller mark. I never thought to use my ombré inks like that, I will definitely try this! 😎

      I use the table model magnifier that you can move around. You adjust it close to your work and look over the magnifier to look into it. My mother bought it years ago but it is still available. I decided to use it out of curiosity one day and was amazed at how better I could see the details. So now I use it all the time with my watercoloring and even when using my Copic markers occasionally.

    Love the way you inked the hearts. I have a hard time stamping with my ombré inks too. Looking forward to you showing us the trick to stamping with them.

    Someone was supposed to send me their die cutter when they said they couldn’t use anymore because she had problems with her hands and she couldn’t use the hand crank feature. She said she was waiting till she could afford to mail it to me. So as you can see, without a die cutter I can’t make this card. I do love how you did it though. I love all the colors! Great card!
