A simple ombre border is easy to create with the Color Theory Designer Paper Stack.  This 48 sheet pack includes 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  There are four different colors included in the designs; Berry Burst, Crushed Curry, Dapper Denim and Old Olive.

A beautiful ombre paint chip border brightens these tulip stems. Stampin' Up!'s Tranquil Tulip stamp set.

The patterns are varied in the stack providing you lots of flexibility.  I chose the paint chip ombre piece and coordinated these tulip blooms to match.

Beautiful berry tones on various tulips created with 2-step stamps by Stampin' Up!. Tranquil Tulips stamp set.

This card uses only 3 colors of ink; Berry Burst, Pear Pizzaz and Memento Black.  Although it looks as if there are three different colors of flowers, I only used one ink pad.  You can easily create varying shades by “stamping off” a layer or two of ink on scratch paper.  I’ve got a quick tip video to show you how.
