Clean & Simple Card Class – Day 5

  • Stamps – Waxing Nostalgia (Rubber City Rubber) “Butterflies are Free” and Little Yellow Bicycle “Elegant”
  • Ranger Distress inks – Milled Lavendar, Dusty Concord and Victorian Velvet
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Perfect Pearls Mist – Biscotti
  • Watercolor paper

This technique was part of the latest lesson in the Clean and Simple Cardmaking class I’m taking. It involves stamping and heat embossing the images and then colorblocking the background with Distress Inks over the white embossing. Very simple and has a very cool watercolor effect with a little sparkle from the Perfect Pearls. This was the card I learned on–so I’m hoping my next one is a little bit better! Thanks for joining me today.

OWH – Floral Fantasy

  • Stamp – Printworks “Thank You”
  • Die cuts – Memory Box “Small Tilda Swirl,” “Ivy Tendrils” and “Bistro Label”
  • Border punch – EK Success
  • Patterned paper – Basic Grey “Lime Rickey” collection (6 X 6 pad)
  • Pearls – Queen & Co. Grass Green Pearls
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I just got my hands on these Memory Box dies and was “dying” to use them! So I put them to work for the OWH Floral Fantasy challenge. I used really bright colors and the navy blue background shows off the amazing detail you can get making these die cuts. Thanks for visiting.
