My last card for the evening. Maile's CAS front and center (formal) card. This beautiful butterfly is from PTI's Pretty Peonies. I couldn't resist another butterfly. This time I decided to leave off the glitter strip. I will not be in my craft room tomorrow, because my grandson who is in the 4th grade is in a Spelling Bee Contest either for district or regionals. So I am going to go cheer him on. Wish us luck. So, see you on Saturday....

My card using Maile's clean and simple look. As I was getting ready to post I looked at her card and was reminded about the glitter strip. Unfortunately, I did not a color that matched any of the balloons. This color was the closet I had to the pink. Oh well, plus it looks crooked again. I really love her style.
I used PTI's Ocean Tides paper which also has the look of the old green chalkboards. The top line ended up being crooked, so I made another one but the center in the middle of the phone was off and looked worse, so I went with this one. I rarely get those middle stamps right in the center. This is so great. My BFF, Colleen and I skype together and it is like we are in the same room stamping together.
These are the two cards I made using Julie's method. I used PTI's In Bloom stamp set. I used a silver glitter pen (not sure if you can see in picture) in the center of each flower tracing the lines and then added a little pearl bling to each center on both cards. Another great technique. Loving this class.

I mistakenly gave credit to Debbie for this technique, but it was actually Shari. My apologies.
Here is my card using labels demonstrated by Shari. This was not quite as easy as she made it look. Peeling the labels was the tricky part. I actually like how it turned out though. Not usually my style of card.
This is my card I made using Kristina's technique stamping twice with second image offset a little. I struggled with this one too. The first card I made ended up being way too busy so I threw that one away and started over. I am happier with this one.

This is one of the watercolor methods that Jennifer showcased in her video today. I did the first one with black ink then remembered she used a light ink so you don't see the lines and it looks more like you painted it. She also did it in black and I really like it better in the black ink. I then again used her masking technique.

My BFF gave me a gift card for the Clean and Simple Card Making Class -2 for Christmas.
Today is day 1 and this was one of the cards similar to the one made by Kristina. You can't see it on the card, but I put a few drops of Aqua Mist ink in a spritz bottle with a little water and used my quatrefoil die cut to spray on it. It does show up a little bit. Maybe need more ink.

Ok, so this time I meant to turn the hearts off kilter but don't think I did it enough. It looks like I just didn't get it straight. And I think I added one too many hearts on the white, (the dotted swiss one.)
