Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Today, a few of our design team members are revisiting the Ombre Builders stamp set.

“Ombre Builders is definitely a set I need to reach for more often. There are so many elements that you can use to not only build an ombre or gradient background, but to create so many possibilities for background patterns. I played around with color and layering for the project that I am sharing today and created a background that looks like a woven fabric!”

“Ombre Builders is one of my favorite graphic element sets, with so many possibilities for adding color and pattern to cards. As the name suggests, it’s perfect for building ombre patterns with colors blending together. So since I found myself in the mood for a rainbow, I decided on a “full spectrum ombre” for this week’s Throwback Thursday. I’m a sucker for a rainbow card! Stop by my blog to read all about it.”

    Well, I’ve had this stamp set for quite a while and haven’t used it yet but now I’m so glad I have it. I’m so inspired by all the fabulous cards I’ve seen today. Thank for choosing this stamp set for Throwback Thursday and thank you to all the designers who created a card for today

    I do not have this set, but I like the look of fabric behind the leaves and the rainbow effect as a background also.
    PS: I wanted to submit a card last week but I do not participate with social media nor do I have a blog or a website. Is there a way l can participate in a challenge?
