Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone!  

Welcome to this weeks MIUM Challenge.

So this week We are doing a Gradient Background!

It don't have to be a single layer card, but if it is,

I'll put your name in the running twice! ;) 

Sound Good? 

Here is the card I made for this weeks challenge. 

The Items used for this card are:

Gina K. Designs:

*Stamp Set - BoHo Flowers from the New Mini Kit

*Pure Luxury Card Stock - White Heavy Base Weight.. and (Inside) Dusty Rose & Layering White

*Premium Dye Ink - Dusty Rose, Sweet Mango, & Black Onyx

*Misti Stamping tool

Here is the Link to the Gallery: 


Now for the small print:

We can't wait to see all the beautiful cards fill the gallery!  <3 

Happy Stamping!  :) 

Here is a link to a video I did using this background:

Sounds fun!

Your sample is lovely. Thanks for the great video. This is another technique I haven't tried and it looks like fun. And getting an extra opportunity to win by making a one layer card adds to the fun. 

Beautiful card, Karen! This should be a fun challenge! Thank you!

Whoa, how beautiful! I love that it's a one layer, too! But that's a real challenge for me lol!!! I hope I can play with you this week!

great card Karen, just made a one layer card tonight, but it doesn't have the inked background, would it still work?

Hi Judy, This challenge is to create a Gradient background... it don't have to be a single layer.   Over in the Addicts group it is a single layer using Kits stamps!  Hope that helps.  :)

Nice challenge Karen. Thanks.

So much fun, and what a great idea for a challenge.

Great card and video, Karen. The link to the gallery isn't working. It goes to your card only.

Hi Karen - just want you to know that the link works fine for me, but there is a card showing there that is from last weeks challenge. Isn't technology great - it does its own thing making us crazier than we were before.

Thank You Johanna, I fixed the link to the gallery! :)

Ms. Karen. Your cards are always so beautiful and this one doesn't disappoint.  I know you are good with templates.  Do you happen to have a template for your card (the black frame)?  I tried all my rectangle dies, however, I don't have one that would fit like your does. Thanks in advance.
