I used the World of Dreams stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create a paint chip/ombre effect card to share today. The colors for my card were inspired by one that my team member and friend, Heather Van Looy created. You can see her beautiful card here.
The design for my card was inspired by Try Stampin’ on Tuesday #182. Be sure to stop by the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday blog to see what the other Design Team Members have created with this sketch!
I started by cutting little rectangles from Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Baked Brown Sugar and Sahara Sand card stock. I adhered the rectangles to a panel of Naturals White card stock with SNAIL.
I stamped the image from the World of Dreams stamp set in Early Espresso ink over the card stock rectangles. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Another Thank You photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the Naturals White card stock panel.
I wrapped a strand of Early Espresso 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon around the panel and adhered it with SNAIL. Then I tied a bow from the ribbon and adhered it to the ribbon strand with a rolled up Glue Dot. I adhered the layered panel to an Early Espresso card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I finished the card front by adding three Early Espresso Candy Dots (from the Neutrals Candy Dots pack).
I stamped the image from the World of Dreams stamp set again on a Naturals White panel inside the card.

Stampin’ Up! items used to create this project:
This is beautiful! I love it!
Thanks Heather! Thanks to you for providing an awesome card for inspiration. 🙂
Wow! Very nice. Masculine use also. Birthday I think. Thank you.
Thanks Faith! I agree, this would make a great masculine birthday card! 🙂
Beautiful card Amy. I love how you did this in shades of brown. And of course, another new stamp set to add to my wish list courtesy of Amy the Enabler. As if I need anymore flower sets……..lol
Thanks so much Terri…of course you need this set! It’s not all flowers, there is a bird too. 😉
I really like this card. I have a question for you, on your supply list….what is the “Back to Black Designer Series Paper – 2-1/2″ x 3-5/8″ panel” used for?
Thanks…oops!! I copied and pasted the formatting for my supply list and missed deleting that one. Sorry, I didn’t use it on this card. Thanks for catching it!! 🙂
Love the color palette that Heather inspired for your card, soft, subtle, and elegant. That being said, this would make a great masculine card too 🙂 I wonder if a traveler stamp might fit here? Extend out the color swatches and the train might fit? Ah, then I might have changed it up and messed it up, lol! 😉
I think that the train image would work great on this layout. Give it a try!! 🙂
hi, very nice card! I was wondering if you have a tutorial on how you get your bows so pretty? Thanks much
Thanks so much Beth. I use the Bow Easy to help my tie my bows…especially little ones. It works great and is a very inexpensive tool! 🙂
The simplicity of this card just astounded me! Love your blog
Thanks so much Angela! I’m glad that you liked my card and my blog. 🙂
