Sweet Fades

We want to feature speedy Ombre techniques! 

I will be featuring my super fun Creative Chemistry - Mary Poppins creation on Sunday, Aug 14th. Here's a sneak peek...

With this awesome line-up, so let's not waste time. 
Check out these fabulous designers: 

Up first is Deb and her cool blues, featuring the Fallen Blossom by Nicole Wright Designs.



Speedy crafting is definitely not my forte so it was a real challenge for me to make this ten minute ombre birthday card!  But Nicole Wright's Fallen Blossom stamps and Emerald Creek's Iridescent Shimmer embossing powder came to my rescue and I have to say it's pretty amazing what you can make in ten minute when you have to!  I've a few (quick!) step by step photos on my blog, hope you can pop by to take a look.



WOW!!!  The DARE Challenge is to create a 10 minute project!!!
Difficult for me but I all I can say is I sure did try. 
It took me 10 minutes believe it or not to create my tag....
the most important part is to have a vision of what you want to create,
have your supplies gathered up and go for it. 
It was super easy to achieve the look I wanted for my tag using Emerald Creek Supplies Daisy Flowers and Glacier White Embossing Powder along with distress ink.
It took me a few extra minutes to create the flowers from the scraps of embossed paper since I fussy cut them out and layered them together. 
I have step out photos on my blog.


It's all about quick crafting and creating an ombre effect for our Emerald Creek Dares. So with those two things in mind and with the help of some of the amazing scene stamps available in the store as well as some water colouring, it made for an easy card. Head over to my blog for a step-by-step on how I created my card as well as a bonus card at the bottom of the post. 


To make life a little easier!;)
