Ombre Ink pads and vintage leaves

Today’s card is inspired by the Just Add Ink#348 

Perfect timing, I just watched the recent you tube clip from Stampin’ Up! And I was itching to have a play with my ombre ink pads.

To create the ombre background I used the calypso coral ombre ink pad (141611) I used each coloured pad on its own and worked down the page to create the effect I was after.

The leaves are from the vintage leaves (138802) set and stamped in the Bermuda bay ombre (141608) and Rich Razzleberrry ombre (141609) and then cut out using the coordinating die set leaflets framelits (138283)

Finally  I finished it off by heat embossing the greeting from One big meaning (139420) using basic black archival ink (140931) and clear embossing powder (109130) that’s it for my card today, but ut I did want to share with you this awesome Youtube clip by Stampin’ Up! I had no idea the just keep swimming set was designed to fit the ombre pads!  And that Cake looks great!  Let me know what you thought of the video.
