Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 34

This week's Watercooler Wednesday challenge finds us using the Ombre Technique.  Jean gave us this great inspiration photo from which to work.  To be honest, it's a technique I've not done before.  I'm not sure why because I do like the effect you get.

The new Happy Scenes stamp set and the new Hearth & Home Framelits Dies just arrived and I couldn't wait to see what I could do with them.  With Autumn just around the corner and the cooler days made for a perfect Fall scene.

Stamp Sets:  For All Things, Happy Scenes, Hardwood; Inks:  Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Tangelo Twist; Card Stock:  Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack, Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Hearth & Home Framelits Dies, Blending Tool, Dimensionals, SNAIL Permanent Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  All Stampin' Up!® unless otherwise noted.

For all the challenge details and to join us for this week's challenge, visit us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  We'd love to see what color you select and how you use it for the Ombre Effect Technique Challenge.

Now, I need to get busy on my projects for our next Watercooler Stamping Blog Hop.  As it so happens, it begins on September 17th at 8:00 p.m.  I do hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. Marsha I'm loving your interpretation of this technique challenge. Love the sunset colours through the window and the beautiful window frame. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Penny! It's still amazing to me what you can do with a blending tool. :-)
