Hi everyone, it’s Jessica here. Have you gotten your vaccine yet? I recently got my second dose to become fully vaccinated and I made a thank you card to go with it. I love heat embossing because it’s so quick and simple, but always provides such a big wow factor. And I added a twist this time by creating the ombre effect! Let me know if you have ever tried heat embossing with different colors.

I used some simple masking techniques with some Kaleidcolor Ink to create the ombre effect on my cards. To see just how easy it was to do, watch my video below to see how I did it. Enjoy!

Today, I create a Kitty Theme Ombre background using a watercolor technique and Memento Ink. This will give you a gorgeous transition from dark to light of the same color. The technique is smooth and allows for a seamless background. The Memento ink is vibrant and colorful and can be easily moved with water. In addition, I show you how to watercolor images directly with Memento Inks.

For today’s card, I heat embossed few flower images with white embossing powder on vellum. I used my sharp pair of scissors to cut them. To create the background I have used Versafine Clair inks which are very highly pigmented and also blend beautifully with each other. I used a jumbo dauber to add the colors. The sunset ombre looks so beautiful and then arranged the flowers on the card. To finish the card I added few splatters of the shimmer spray and a sentiment.
