I have had a chevron punch for quite some time, but since stamping got put on the back burner for a while, I never quite figured out how I wanted to use it. Instead of playing with it, I let it sit on its little perch looking cute in my craft room.
Then I had a brainstorm.
Ombre is in.
Chevron is on its way out.
Why not combine them for a timeless look?
So I rummaged through my drawers of card stock searching for a few ombre combinations, and these cards are what I came up with.
All the fall colors have inspired me lately. They are so warm and comforting to me.
I loved my card so much, I used my other ombre combination to make a similar card.
Get it? Love grows. I couldn't resist.
The hearts are just miscellaneous single stamps, "love" is from a small alphabet stamp set, and "grows" is hand written.
I really love how the ombre chevrons ground the trees without being too overpowering.
