Addicted to CAS Challenge #101



Hi everyone ~ It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our code word is Ombre'. I will be your hostess, and we have an incredibly talented and well known Guest Designer for this challenge...Vicki Dutcher! Also, our Sponsor is Happy Little Stampers, and Kylie is offering a GC for $15.00 for the winner!


I am a huge fan of the effects of Ombre' on my cards, so I have created a few...here is my first card:


And, my 2nd card:


I used Laurie Willison's technique on both cards, and the effect is very pretty in person :)

For my last card, I used Jen McGuire's technique...I think it works perfectly with these cute little stencils:


I love to line my Christmas trees up in rainbow order, and of course the best thing about this design, is that it's great for mass-producing. So, there you have it!
I also wanted to let you know that for this challenge, we have a list of You Tube videos on the ATCAS Blog for various Ombre' techniques...so, I hope you'll check out the blog and join us! 
Have a great weekend ~ 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
