Sunday, March 30, 2014 post last weekend

I'm sorry I didn't post anything last weekend.
I was getting ready to go to my ranch in south Texas.
I met one of my cousins and a friend there.
We went to Round Top.  They have an antique show there.
We shopped for 2 full days and didn't even come close to seeing everything.
But we had fun.

Here are a couple of birthday cards I made and have been received.

This first one I made for my nephew.  
The white is embossed.

 This next one was sent to another nephew's wife.
I don't know why the colors don't match the actual card.
The card was more pinky peach.

This last card I made for some friends as just because cards.

Thanks for visiting.

On Line Card Class Week 2

This is the last week of OnLineCard Class, Clean and Simple.
Here are 2 of the cards I made as homework.

For this card I first die cut the word hello.  I dug out all of my flowers and decided on the 5 you see.  I then match the colors from the flowers with copic markers.  I colored a small piece of vellum with strips from the copies.  The vellum was taped to the back of the card where the hello was cut.  I covered the back with a piece of white card stock.  

This card was really easy.  I first stamped the flower with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then watercolored the flower.  After covering the flower, I spritzed the card with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mist.  I wanted larger drops so I took the spritzer top off and lightly taped the paper where I wanted the spots to be.  I stamped the word, then added embossing paste thru a stencil.  You really can't see all the texture on the card but it's there.

I really enjoyed this class.

Online Card Class Homework

I'm taking a card class from Online Card Classes. 
I have taken several before.  This one is Clean & Simple One Layer Cards.
I don't usually do one layer cards as I like to use decorative papers.
I tried out a few of the techniques that are being taught.  

The first card is Faux Layered Die Cuts.
I made this card with my nephew's birthday in mind.

I used the feather I cut from the front on the inside of the card.
I like this technique and will use it again.

The next technique is Masked Frames.

I like this one also.  I can see using it for a variety of cards.

Now, for the last I have, well, I really don't like it but maybe with another stamp I might.

I stamped the background stamp with Versamark ink and embossed with with clear embossing powder.  Then I colored the image with watercolors.  After it was dry I ironed off the embossing.  Again if I have used a different stamp I might like it better.

Thanks for visiting.
