Clean & Simple?


I am joining in on the Clean & Simple Cardmaking Class this week.  It was a rough holiday break with no stamping and I've been having a difficult time getting back into it.  I thought this would be a good time for me to go back to some basics and try not to overwhelm myself with embellishments.

I squeaked 2 cards out based on the sketches this week, one is a little more detailed than the other but I like them both a lot and was happy with the outcome of them.

My first one uses the frog from The Pond set from Our Craft Lounge.


My second one I did a little more than clean & simple by distressing and using my copics to color in the gnome.  I used some retire really rust cardstock and the Gnomies set from Sweet Stamp Shop for this card.

Not too late to join in on the Clean & Simple classes if you'd like,  you can read more about it here.

Cute cards. Love them both! I don't know what it is but when I can't craft for a while it is really hard to get back into it...it's like the mojo gets lost in my pile of stuff and I don't know where to find it! LOL!
