VIDEO | MFT & Friends Ombre Stencilling

* This is my second post of the day, please see below for my Hero Arts Summer Catalogue Release Hop post*
Hello there, today I am delighted to be joining My Favorite Things for the May MFT & Friends. We are sharing more inspiration using the wonderful May release.

For my card today, I wanted to use the new Hello, Little One stamp set and Die-namics. It is such a cute set and since I have needed quite a few baby cards recently, I thought it would be great to have another ready to go!
I started off by creating my tag for my images to sit on. I die cut the new Scallop Cross-Stich Tag Die-Namics die from Bristol Smooth Cardstock. Using an ink blending tool, I blended Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink on to the tag in an ombre fashion - having the darker colour at the bottom and lighter at the top. I then placed the Full Of Heart Stencil over the tag and blended ink over this too, to create a nice ombre pattern. I added a piece of black ribbon through the top and added this to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape.
I took the stork image from the Hello, Little One stamp set and stamped this on to white cardstock with Extreme Black ink. I coloured the image with Copic Markers and die cut out with the coordinating die. The sentiment, from the same set, was stamped on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This is was cut in to a strip using one of the banner dies from the Hearts In A Row Vertical Die-Namics set. I added both of these to the card with more thin foam tape and then to finish, added a few Sparkling Clear sequins around the sentiment piece.
Here is the video showing how I made the card:
