Watercolor happy birthday

Day 2 of Clean and Simple II online class was all about one layer cards. The technique that really caught my eye was using colored pencils and watercolor brush.

In class they use a brand I don't have so I tried using crayons - and it doesn't work! so I tried the technique with distress inks and loved the effect so much I made two cards.

With the first one I embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder.

 and with this one, I used the Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.

I really like the clean and simple look and how colorful they turned out.

Happy 40th Birthday

I am participating in the Clean and Simple II online course and loving it.

In day 1 they were talking about craftsmanship and working clean :-) Totally hilarious concept for me if you see my desk at most times, but I did try for the following card.

The example they had in class was using a stencil, which I don't have (the dinosaur stencil my kids use doesn't count), so I came up with the brilliant idea to cut one from acetate with the silhouette - totally rocks! I used the Herringbone Background design.

Professor card

Did I mention I love my new silhouette? well... I do.

I created this card in about 10 minutes and my 3 years old was next to me in a mood to do something else (if you have a 3 years old daughter you will appreciate why this fact is important to understand how fast and easy this card was to make).

I cut everything with the silhouette, including the base layers and I love how exact everything is.

Decorated box

I decorated an empty CD box I had so that I can put all of the envelopes I made for my friend.

Decorated Bat Mitzvah Envelopes

The son of a good friend turns 12 this year, which means all the girls in his class are having their Bat Mitzvah's party this year. My friends ask me to create 24 envelopes so that he can put the greetings he writes them.

Since they are all going into one box with lots of other envelopes,  I tried to make them as simple as possible without many layers. I also created each one differently so I'll have more fun creating them.

I used so many of my stamps, tons of ink colors, washi tape, embossing powder, glitter, dies and punches - so much fun.

There are a lot, so I will post a few today and the rest tomorrow.
