Clean & Simple Card Class – Day 3 & 5

I’m back today with a couple more cards from Clean & Simple card class.  Today’s cards are from lessons on day 3 and 5.  Yes I skipped day 4, but no worries I will go back and make something for that day soon.

Day 3:  So unfortunately I don’t have any pretty die cuts like Jennifer used, so I decided to go with circles because I have a variety of different circle punches.  I stacked my circles with different colors underneath.  I think this gives is a nice fun feel that goes well with the idea of a bunch of dots sprinkled on the card. My card base got a little wonky after gluing everything down, I wish I had used ticker purple cardstock. In the end it isn’t my favorite card I have made from class so far, but it is different that’s for sure.

Day 5:  The idea of color blocking with distress inks and water was a fabulous lesson.  I tried a simple design to start with but I have a couple other ideas/colors I want to try so I’ll probably be revisiting this technique soon. For this card I heat embossed one of the delicate blossoms stamps in white embossing powder on watercolor paper.  I then did the color blocking technique using 4 distress colors to create a warm color gradient.  I trimmed my watercolor paper down and distressed the edges before adhering it to a simple card base.

Thanks for stopping in today!
