Card from Class 2

Turning in my homework from Class 2 and hope I don't lose credit for being so slow about completing my work. LOL  Today was Class 4 and I haven't even started on Class 3 yet.  The Online Card Classes are done professionally and I'm really enjoying them. If you ever need something to help get your mojo back, I highly recommend their classes.

Here is my card which showcases muting patterned paper with vellum ...

Stamps:  Sending Hoping Wishing (WPlus9)
Paper:  Island Indigo, Real Red (SU), Vellum
DSP:  My Minds Eye
Ink:  Island Indigo, Versamark
Accessories:  Butterfly die (SU), gems, clear embossing powder

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Back to blogging ...

After over a year of not blogging, I am going to try it again. I enrolled in a class, Online Card Classes, and wanted to upload my card to their site.  I debated back and forth if I wanted to do this venture again. Well, here it goes ...

Stamps:  You (Simon Says Stamps)
Paper:  black (SU), teal, watercolor (Canson), vellum
Ink:  Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed (Distress Inks), Black (Versafine), Versamark
Accessories:  clear embossing powder, sequins, leaf die (Spellbinders)

I watercolored the background and die cut the leaves three times. After attaching the watercolored piece to the teal paper, I clear embossed the leaves and then put them back into their correct cutout with foam tape. The sentiments are also clear embossed.

This card was inspired by Kristina Werner's card over at Online Card Classes.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
