Clean & Simple Card Making 2 - Day 2

Day 2 was just as much fun as day 1 and I was on time this time...up at 5am ready to go with a nice hot cup of coffee and ready to watch the new days videos by 6am.  By 6:30 I have watched all three videos and started thinking about what kind of card to make and what I would use. I only had supplies on have to make Debbie's card and we so happy that I learned a few new things today! I have never used a die to deboss and it was much easier than I thought it would be, it only took me 2 tries to get it right.  I was happy that the technique worked but did not like the look of the black butterfly trails, I just might redo this card tomorrow. Looking forward to tomorrow and learning more new techniques. Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card.

In addition to having a fabulous day 2 I also had a really nice Happy Mail day...my new Silhouette Cameo arrived (I had a Cricut and sold my machine and all the cartridges), now I just need the time to learn how to use this wonderful thing! I also received a late Christmas gift, a Donney Bourke handbag from one of my school moms...it really was a great day!

  1. Love your card from today. The colors are so soft and spring-like. That label die looks fantastic debossed. I was surprised, too, at how easy that technique is, and I learned that I was putting my mats in the wrong order, too. See you in class tomorrow.

  2. Kim your card using the medallion is gorgeous, your Cameo is beautiful in the box and thank you for sharing the photo of your new purse--LOVE them all! See you tomorrow at school, I will be late--hair appointment!

  3. Love the soft colors on this card Kim. Congrats on your new Cameo - I am still learning to use it but I LOVE it!

  5. love your card and you are going to LOVE your cameo- i don't know what i would do without it

  6. Wow Kim, your 'debossed' label really pops out! That is very clever way to get an imagine to pop and still keep it one layer! Nice design and colors you selected!

  8. Oh, ho, what fun, you have turned into a Cameo girl, too! I'll never keep up with you and Harriet, now! Can't wait to see the magnificent cards you create with it. Your card here from the class is breath-taking, Kim!
