My snowy turquoise card is a little harder to see the ombre, but I love the snowy scene using the Hero Arts kit from December and then the WPlus9 Holiday Houses stamp set! My yellow card also uses the Hero Arts kit but with a summery twist. I hope you join us with this really cool technique!

Misti's pink card uses the WPlus9 Kind Soul stamp set. 


And DON'T FORGET!!! In just a couple weeks (my birthday week actually ;) ) we will be giving away a 5"x7" Gel Press to a random lucky winner from all the cards that have been posted to our challenge blog since we started in January!!! 

 

Have a super fun and crafty weekend!!
