Online Card Class Homework

Well, here it is  Day 5 of the Clean & Simple Techniques Made Simple, and I have finished a total of 2 projects - but I have lots of time to go over the lessons again as they are forever available to students yay!

Today's lesson was fun - so check it out! I can't tell you….lol

I haven't added it to a card base as of yet, but that is coming soon.

I used My Favorite Things Dienamics LOVE die (no link found) for my background and the arrow from Tag Builder Blueprints 3 

The heart stamp is from Reverse Confetti's Heart to Heart and it is stamped in MFT's Ripe Raspberry Premium Dye Ink. 

Have a great day - we are off to a birthday party - rousing great time I'm sure!

Wherever You Go…..

For Valentine's Day….because it is just around the corner right?

I am taking the Creative Card Online Class and did one of the techniques that were shown in their fabulous videos…..but alas, I failed miserably at the technique - I think I used the wrong ink or something important like that :)

Anyway, it still turned out kind of cute!

I totally inked a white piece of card stock with MFT's new Ripe Raspberry Dye Ink by running the ink pad upside down onto the sheet of paper - and by totally, I mean the whole piece of paper - I'm not being rad or anything like that….HAH!  I sponged Simon Says Stamp's ink - Hot Lips -  around the edges to create a bit of red.

I stamped MFT's Tiny Hearts background with Versamark ink - this is the part where the magic was supposed to happen - and didn't - dang it.

I used the car from Reverse Confetti's Here We Go Confetti Cuts  and die cut it only halfway, so that I would still have it attached to my card stock.  I then stamped the car with Simon Says Stamp Fossil ink.  I die cut and stamped the wheels with Papertrey Ink Smokey Shadow ink and popped them up onto the car.

Using the sentiment from the Here We Go set, I stamped it in Smokey Shadow ink and popped up that strip onto my card base.

The little hearts are from Simon Says Stamps Holiday Shapes Die - love it!

Color Throwdown #327- Play!

Hey bloggers! It's time for another Color Throwdown - and darn it, my last post as a Guest Designer .

This week was a trial for me eeks!- Wanda provided a beautiful inspiration photo but I had a heck of a time - ever have that problem?

Anyway, I persevered and managed to come up with a cutie!!

I began by adhering a panel of lime polka dot patterned paper diagonally across my card base and stamping the sentiment in lime ink along the edge.  I then added another couple of strips of paper.

After assembling MFT's All-Star High Tops Die-namics  from the chosen colours of card stock into  two different shoes - and why not,  I popped them up onto the front.  

I stamped and fussy cut the PLAY word from Winnie & Walter's The Big, The Bold and Fun and popped it up onto my card.  A couple of sequins brought this card to an end.

And that’s all from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge…...just use the closest colours that you have.  

Come on and play along - just add your direct link to the Color Throwdown post! -If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD327 so we can see your beautiful creation!   Be sure to check out the loveliness from the other team members - you know it will be awesome!!
