Honey Bee Stamps Ombre Christmas.

I hope you are all having a great day ?

I don’t know about you but I love all things ombre, especially in card making and i feel its often overlooked as a fun and easy way to create a clean and simple card.

As soon as I saw one of the stamps from the latest Honey Bee Stamps release Ombre instantly popped into my mind, and I wanted to go with slightly non traditional Christmas colours.

I have had this stamp set for a little while and it is so pretty, so pretty in fact it had become one of those “I don’t ever want to ink it and just stroke it” sets.

But I made myself ink it and I am so glad I did because it was lovely to stamp.

Simon Says Stamp & Mission Gold

I cannot believe it is Friday already ! I had to double check the calendar this morning as this week seems to have flown by. 
The good thing though is that I am having a total crafting day & weekend.
For the card I am sharing today I have used a love themed stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Roses for you.

It is a beautiful set, but since it popped through my door I have been looking at the heart cluster of roses thinking it could be used as background stamp with a little careful placement. 
So this morning I cracked out my Mission Gold watercolours and decided to give it ago. 
Now it did take some working out, and I was left with some small open areas but I used the individual roses & leaves to fill them in. 
I was really happy with how it turned out, and it gives another way to use this lovely set. 
I heat embossed the images onto some Strathmore Watercolour cardstock using Simons fine detail embossing powder. 
I then did a very very light pink wash over the whole piece and allowed to dry, once it was dry I then did some loose watercolouring. 
I was going to leave the leaves, but decided to water down one of the greens and use that and I am glad I did because it has broken up the pink.
For the sentiment I die cut Simon Says Stamp painted Friend die several times out of Neenah and then once out of the silver card I had in my stash. 
The happy Birthday sentiment is from another Simon set and I heat embossed that and trimmed it to fit against the friend die. 
To finish off I die cut the panel using Blueprints 29 and mat and layered onto the same pink card I used for the sentiment. 
I then added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and Nuvo Crystal Drops…these are new to me and so far I am liking them ! 
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you all have an amazing day and a great weekend. 
Happy Crafting
