Well, I must say that this certainly was a challenge. After I made several attemps this is finally the end product. Not my favorite. Don't think I will be making any more shaker cards anytime soon. I versamarked a leafy background on the green paper. Used my Mat Stack #1 for the shaker part with limitless circle for the cutout. Used the appreciation stamp that I received from PTI for the sentiment and had the flower already made.

I made this CAS card with just the bottom line stamped, but felt it had too much open space on the top and decided to add the other stamping and actually kind of like it. This is a little more modern than I usually do. I was surprised how even I got it by just eyeballing.
This was the second card I made Friday night, with the butterfly die cut out and then placing the piece of DP paper behind it. I like it but thought a smaller butterfly and smallerd strip at bottom might look better.
So today, Saturday I first went grocery shopping and then went to my grandson's basketball game which they won. It is amazing how they get a little bit better each year they play. Anyway, after the game I had a few minutes to come to my craft studio and made this card with the smaller butterfly and smaller strip of paper. I love how this one turned out. I may make a set of these for my friend at work who will be having a birthday in February.
Then this is how the first card was supposed to turn out. I think making this a little higher on the card makes it so there is not so much white space on top. I really like the CAS cards if done correctly. I think I learned a lot from the class to finally make them successfully.

Day 5 of the Clean & Simple class. Using different techniques. This is misting Distress or I used Memento Ink with water and Perfect Pearls. I just used water. I really struggled with this technique. Made several attempts, but I was not pleased with any of them. I came up with this after viewing the Gallery and looking at some of the cards posted. Not sure if I will use this method again.....

Another card using the ink blending method. Just wanted to practice this technique to get better at it.
I used It's a Jungle Stamp set to do this card working on the Ink blending method which I have trouble with. I actually made two cards. This has been my best attempt at the blending.

This card is using the Sentiments as the main focal point. I used various Thank you's from PTI stamp sets and the flower is a Christmas present from my dear friend, Col which I colored with Prism pencils and then used a solution to blend to make it look like water colors.
