Hello, folks! I know, I know, its way too soon to be sharing Christmas cards, but I simply cannot help myself. When I discover something I really love (like the combination of ombre inks and a background stamp) I simply must use it to make a card and even a video if I have the time.

So today I’m going to show you my new favorite way to use ombre ink pads to create a gorgeous background for a winter (or Christmas!) card. And see all of that snow on the middle card and the one one the right? Doesn’t it really look like snow to you? That’s all Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. Compare the card in the middle with the one on the left to see how big of a difference you can get. Gorgeous!

I used a Snowy Scene woodblock stamp together with Pool to Navy ombre ink pad and a Soft Pool ink from Hero Arts to stamp this stunning clean background. Because I used an ombre ink pad the sky looks as if I had blended the colors over images that were masked or heat embossed in white or clear. When in fact all I did – was inked a background stamp using an ombre ink pad. So beautiful! I seriously cannot stop loving this background (so now you see why I had to share these cards way before Christmas). I struggle with ink blending so using an ombre pad is a fantastic alternative for me.

I used the same Pool to Navy ombre ink pad to stamp the sentiment and a Soft Pool ink pad to stamp the snowflakes. I also added a strip of glitter tape to the bottom of this card, I’ve seen Lisa Spangler do this a number of times and I just love it on her cards! So festive!

I’ve created a video tutorial to show you how this card made. You can watch it below or on Youtube:

    1. Love the Christmas card today. I have all these stamps and just with the Ombre inks you use, it makes it fantastic. You motivate me all the time, and I want to take this opportunity to thank you. Every card you make is absolutely stunning and motivating. Thank you, Lynn

    1. What a beautiful card! I don’t think it’s too soon to start making them! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Simply wonderful – love every single detail! Fab video and instructions too!!

    1. I just ADORE this card! I may have to mass produce some of these myself. So simple but beautiful. Thank you for the idea!

    1. Like you I love the stamp background sky, deer, and trees the minute I saw it. I am so happy to see your video. I had done something similar but not near as beautiful as yours. I like to see it then make it so keep making videos. Also I am going to try the sky lite & dark that is great. I am signing up to your space and look for more great stuff. Dolores

    1. What a beautiful card! I really enjoyed the flow of your tutorial. I am so happy I cam across your work on Pinterest. I will be back. Thank you for sharing your time and talent.

    1. Yana, there isn’t one card I love because I love them all. Don’t you just love the ombre stamp pads? The Christmas cards are very inspiring and on the card list for Christmas. Thanks for sharing your talent!
