clean and simple day 1

A card class dedicated to Clean & Simple stamping? Wild horses wouldn't have stopped me taking part! So today is Day 1 of a two week class entitled Clean & Simple card making. They have some amazing designers running the class and guesting too and I am so looking forward to the next two weeks. I aim to play along when I can, although I have visitors coming on Thursday for a week, so that will probably put paid to things for a while, but I hope to catch up afterwards.

I will keep these posts brief as my aim is to take part as much as possible and so I aim to post pictures as soon as I can without being too wordy. So here we go with my card for Day 1.

Pin It
Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts designer woodgrain, Papertrey Ink wishing you; Inks - Versacolor sky gray, Versafine onyx black; Card - Stampin' Up real red; Dies - Spellbinders hearts; Twine - The Twinery marasschino

I must admit to struggling with my photography just recently. I am taking advice when I can and trying to get the pictures which I see others achieve where the card just pops off the page. Maybe a photography class should be on my to do list this year too!

This card is based on a sketch by the amazing Maile Belles. I die cut a heart from the woodgrain panel and added a die cut red heart beneath.


I'm also going to pop this card over to Moxie Fab for their die cutting challenge.

Hopefully I will manage a Day 2 post tomorrow.

I'm still learning - I was wondering if you secured your string at all? Or did you just wrap it and tie it? thanks!
