I've created this fun ombre look with the beautifully floral Hues of Happiness DSP from Stampin' Up!

The patterned paper was my starting point for this design and left over from another project, I already had a pile of the flowers ready to go!

One of the great things about Stampin' Up! is the coordination through the product range - for example, with this suite in particular, the Blossoming Happiness dies fit several different shaped flowers featured in the patterns. 

So, even if you don't have the ink pads or the stamp set, you can still create cards with lots of beautiful elements.

In my card design, I've featured the colours Fresh Freesia, Gorgeous Grape and Night of Navy.

I've used similar colour combinations before but adding Night of Navy with the purples was a new one for me. I love how DSP encourages me to try different combos (still, you're not likely to see me use the colours red and orange very much!)

To decorate my card, I've die cut the word thanks from the Amazing Thanks dies. I've used the Silver Foil Specialty pack however, I am now wishing I'd had more time to create a coordinating ombre look using the die cut.

The holes on the right side of the white panel on the card have been created using a die from the coordinating Blossoming Happiness dies.

On the left hand side of the white panel, I've wrapped a piece of White Organdy Glittered ribbon and have tied a bow. It's hard to tell in my photos but you can just about see it if you know what to look for! 

I've also added some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels onto the card and also in the centre of each flower. 

The perfect thing about both of these products is how easily they blend into whatever colours you are using - perfect if the don't have a colour coordinating ribbon or embellishment.
