Pattern Play & Some Challenges


Hello everyone! It’s been awhile or at least quite a few days.  I have to say, once again, I LOVED Pattern Play from OnlineCardClasses and I can’t wait for the next class!  I wasn’t able to make too many cards during the class, but the last few I have made are definitely inspired by what I learned. I like this card because it’s simple and it’s a great way to use up those large patterned papers that you’re just not so sure of.


Here is another card that was inspired by Pattern Play.  I also used a sketch from RetroSketches and will enter it into their weekly challenge.  I can’t say I’m a fan of paper weaving, but… I gave it a shot.  Here is the sketch:


And the card I made from the sketch.  It’s okay… I do like the paper I chose!


My final card for this post was inspired by the weekly sketch challenge at Operation Write Home.  Here is the sketch:


And here is my card.  I don’t know about you… but I just HEART those Hero Art Mid-Tone Shadow inks!  They are YUMMY!



Peace Out…


CAS2 Day 7! – Single Layer Cards

Hi Everyone! I can’t believe a week has gone by already! I NEVER want this class to end!  Today we focused on single layer cards again.  Frightening, yes, I know!!!  You. Can’t. Cover. Up. Your. Mistakes. GAHHH!  It’s really a problem.  LOL!  I’m trying to embrace it, but… it’s really a problem. So… my first card was a #FAIL!  No big thing really.  I really didn’t have the appropriate stamp, so I tried to use what I had and it just wasn’t going to work.  My second card worked out pretty good… and here it is:

I used Neenah Solar White Cardstock cut at 4.25″ x 4.25″.  I mad the flower mask using a Spellbinders die and then sprayed with Mister Huey Sherbet.  The stamps used were Lawn Fawn & Hampton Arts. The ink was Hero Arts Mid-tone Shadow Ink in Orange Soda.
