Throwback Thursday "Do Over" & my homework for Clean & Simple 4 online card class day 3

GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome to our first Throwback Thursday "Do Over".
This is a NEW segment we will be doing on our blog! I think it's an AWESOME idea! :)  
Basically what we need to do is make over a project from the past & post the before & after pic! Well, to be honest w/you ALL….I "THINK" I did mine wrong!!! lol….. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use the doggie again….but I just RE-DID the entire card! I just did a WHOLE NEW MAKE OVER! hahahaha!  After seeing my design team's before & after pics….that's when I realized….'houston, we have a teensy problem!!!'  hehehe! 

Well, here is my "original" card!  To be honest, I think I like my ORIGINAL card BETTER!!!! LOL…..

Okay, what I ALSO incorporated with my card was the technique I learned from one of the teachers, the TALENTED Miss Karolyn Loncon from the online card class!  She did this FUN stamping technique that I HAD to try! I explained in my video below exactly how I created it!

Inspiration Wednesday & my homework for "Clean & Simple 4" online card class!

GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome to another "Inspiration Wednesday!" 
For my card card today, I was inspired by the talented Miss Shari Carroll!  She is one of the teachers for the "Clean & Simple 4" online card class & she did a technique by die cutting an image out of fun foam & using it as a stamp!  I adhered the die cut to an acrylic block, inked it up & stamped it directly to my card! Using that same foam that I inked up, I removed it from my acrylic block then adhered it slightly on top of the stamped butterfly! Next I used the smaller butterfly die & just cut it out using the same fun foam, but just kept it white!  I added some wink of stella to all 3 of my butterflies! I used some gold/bronzey paint & flicked a tiny bit of splatters on to my card.  I added 3 different kinds of washi tape to the right edge of my card & this is what Miss Shari did to her card & I LOVED that touch! Before I adhered that front panel to the base of my card, I used some gold/bronzey thread, tied it around a few times & made a simple bow~!  I used my Label Font stamp set & stamped out HELLO using that same ink I used for the butterflies which was Simon Says AUDREY BLUE! Then I used some clear embossing powder on top of the sentiment to give it a little shine, then layered it on top of a gold card stock! Last, but certainly not least, I added sequins!

Favorite Stamp/Die of the Month & my homework for "Clean & Simple 4" online class

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome to another "My Favorite Stamp/Die of the Month!" 
For today, I am combining 2 things in my post together! The first thing, I am featuring our die of the month which is "Teeny Tag Layering Dies!" You have until Sunday, Jan 31, 2015 to pick this die set up HERE at a sale price! 
The second thing I did today was do a new technique that I learned from the latest "Clean & Simple 4 Online Card Class"  There were a few embossing techniques & right away this one caught my eye because I have never did it before! You all know me, I get BORED EASILY & I LOVE to learn new techniques! Let's just say that I will DEFINITELY be doing this again! The next time I do it, I will do it in a video for you! ;)  
Basically, it's a lot of heat embossing using clear embossing powder! I was able to use for the first time my "Clear Gloss Ultra High" embossing powder by WOW!  I actually LOVED it!!! I picked mine up from my trustee HERE!  I also used it on the tags too, but you can't see all the shininess in my pic :(  For my inks, I used my pigment inks from Memento luxe PEAR TART & BAHAMA BLUE! These inks are MY FAVE pigment inks because the colors are BEAUTIFUL & VIBRANT! 

If you would like to take this card class, it's not too late, you can do so HERE!

Trending Now Thursday ~ Wood & Lace!

GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome to another "Trending Now"! 
I was able to sneak in my craft room while my boys were both napping! They are still under the weather, but getting a little better! THANK YOU for your get well wishes for them! ;) 

Okay for our cards today, we have incorporated some kind of lace & wood! It didn't necessarily have to be actual "wood", some of us also used a woodgrain background as well!

For my card, I was able to wipe the dust off of my veneer wood paper I had picked up from Joann's about 4 or 5 years ago! lol…. I was holding on to it & just KNEW I would use it eventually! ;) I LOVE this stuff because this material cuts w/my dies BEAUTIFULLY! I couldn't find a link to this particular paper, but thanks to my team member Miss Nikki, found some HERE if you want to try it out! 
I LOVE this stuff because you can also heat emboss it too! I'm not sure if you can see it or not,  but I used my Grainy Wood Background stamp & heat embossed it onto that piece of veneer wood that everything is layered on top of! I used a embossing powder from WOW -Vintage Champagne & you can find it HERE!
