One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Clean and Simple 2 Day 3 - 4

Shari Carrol showed how to make a card using labels...so I pulled out some labels that I had and started stamping sentiment stamps from Technique Tuesday and  PTI's Hello Sunshine.  I stamped and then cut to fit and layed on the card randomly (I did use a T square to line up the first one!).  The sun is die cut and stamped from Back Pocket Basics.  The strip of paper is just from my stash...I used a rubber round stamp and daubers for the round splotches of color.  Added a little bling and called it good!  So that might be it for me for day 3 unless I have some free time, I might just try that gradient stamping that Jennifer showed...maybe I will have time for that this weekend when we take a break from the videos!  What a fun class and learning so much and doing things that are definitely out of my comfort zone...but loving the challenge and thinking outside the box!

  2. I love your take on Shari's card. I especially like the idea of turning the labels strips the other way. C x
