online card class...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a few cards that I made using techniques I learned from Online Card Classes Clean and Simple Cards 4.   There are lots of fun techniques, but I have only had a chance to play with a few of them.


Day 1 featured different clean and simple embossing techniques.  I made this card using that technique.  Some of you already saw this card on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog as I made it for my {Create it Wednesday} post.   The stamps I used are from the new PRS set "This Moment", as well as two other PRS sets (Coffee Love and DIY).   The embossing powder I used is Ranger's Enchanted Gold.   Enchanted Gold is really pretty, but really pale so I actually had to repeat the embossing step twice.


Day 3 featured some fun inking techniques.  I made the first card using one of the techniques.  Thankfully I had the right kind of ink or I would not have been able to give it a try.   I used Simon Says Stamp Smoke Grey ink to cover my white cardstock.  The stencil is from Memory Box.  Versamark ink was applied and allowed to dry.  The cool look you see is the end result.   This card also features a technique from Day 5 direct to paper inking (I used it on the heart).  The stamps are dies are from SSS and since the current SSS flickr challenge is hearts I will be popping this into that challenge.


The last card also uses a technique from day 3... "velveteen" stamping.  Unfortunately I did not have a background stamp that had a solid enough image on it and so my "velveteen" stamping didn't show up too well.   I used the Hero Arts background stamp Large Canvas Stripes, PTI's Turning a New Leaf and a butterfly from the Stampin Up! set Papillion Potpourri.   The sentiment is from the SSS set Hand Lettered Winter Wishes.  The inks are from Stampin Up! and Memento.   This close up shot shows the "velveteen" stamping a little better.


Thanks for stopping by...

How cool that you are able to create all these beautiful cards with the new techniques that you've learned, Rosemary! I was trying to zoom into the first card onto the sentiment - was it a double embossing effect that was created?
