Online Card Class – Day 7

By Cards


Hi all,

We are on to day 7 of our online card class. Today’s theme was single layer cards made clean and simple. I absolutely loved the cards posted by Julie Ebersole. Prior to this class I hadn’t really known her as a designer, but I am truly inspired by her creations and character. Her card had so much dimension and layers using ink, but no bulk.  Amazing! For today’s card I took the theme of masking and inking to create my card.

Here it is!

Pattern Play – Card 3

By Cards


Hi all,

We’re on to day 2 and card 3 of Pattern Play. Today’s project concept is to use a stamping technique on patterned paper. I found it really interesting that one of the instructors stamped her image and then clear embossed it so the stamp would resist all inking done to the paper. I played on that concept a bit and came up with my take on the lesson.

Here it is:


As you can see, right below the word banner I clear embossed a stamped image and then inked the paper orange and blue. The stamped image resisted the ink and just pops out. The paper now looks more antiqued and aged. The original paper was a simple diamond pattern on cream colored paper.
