Clean & Simple Holiday Cards Day 5

CSH_participant

I have been taking an online card class at OnlineCardClasses.com with Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire.  It has been really fun and I love the techniques that they have been teaching!!!

Day 5 technique was Heat Embossing.  I LOVE this technique and use it on almost all of my cards.  I also participated in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge   The theme was all that glitters is gold.  The first card glitter with gold, don’t you think?

I created this card using gold embossing powder for Day 5 and the Wednesday Challenge.

Clean & Simple Holiday Cards Day 4

CSH_participant

I have been taking an online card class at OnlineCardClasses.com with Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire.  It has been really fun and I love the techniques that they have been teaching!!!

Day 4 techniques were foiling and glitter .  I LOVE the sparkle, but I don’t love how it is applied.  LOL!!  I love the foiling but it quite a process to get it to turn out right.  I had trouble with the heat method and getting it to stick and cover evenly.  I love glitter, but I still need to fine tune how I get it to stay and not fall off.  So, this was a bit of a challenge for me.  I do love the cards that I created and I did them in a thanks/Thanksgiving theme so that I could participate in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week as that was the theme.

I created 3 cards:

For Day 3 the Technique was coloring.  I had fun creating this card with the techniques that Shari Carroll had for heat embossing on velum and then coloring on the back side of  the velum.  I really enjoyed this process.

Day 2 techniques–featured die cutting.  I really loved Channin Pelletier’s technique of cutting die cut shapes out of contact paper and using them as a reverse stencil.  Here is the card I made.

Clean & Simple Holiday Cards Day 1

CSH_participantI have been taking an online card class at OnlineCardClasses.com #occcleanandsimpleholiday with Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire.  It has been really fun and I love the techniques that they have been teaching!!!  The first day was all about ink and ways to use ink.  On Day 1 of class we had some homework to do–create a card using inspiration we got from the class lessons.  I created this card by ink blending the background with Distress Inks and a blending tool.
