Clean and Simple Card Making 2 - Day 1






I was so excited that I won a spot in the class from JJ Bolton's blog.   I am sharing the card I made for today's homework.  Today we were to create a card using one of the four sketches provided.  I decided to use Kristina's sketch and kept pretty true to it. There was a first for me today, I have had sitting in my marker carousel for over a year two Smooch Spritz spray inks...sealed.  I have always been really afraid to try it, but today I was brave.  Now because this is new territory I didn't have a box to spray into.  So I decided to tape what I was spraying to chipboard and spray over the laundry room sink.  I really hope my husband doesn't go in there until I have a chance to clean it up.  



Now my card is my second attempt, I actually liked the first card I sprayed better, it was more subtle.  However, when I tried to faux stitch around the circle I ran into some trouble.  Do you think I was nervous?  So we are going no stitching.

All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  White, Pure Poppy
Stamps: Sending My Love, Heart Prints
Ink:  True Black (PTI) VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Dies: Cover Plate Circles
other: foam tape, white embossing powder, red Smooch Spritz

I'm laughing at the thought of somebody's husband going into the laundry room! I love what you've achieved with that PTI die as a mask!

Beautiful take on the card!

Joyce said...

A+ for you today. This is wonderful, and such a great take on the lesson today. Is it really a possibility that your DH would enter the laundry room? Or does he not even know where it is?

Lisa said...

Well Miss Tracey I give you a gold star today! Great job and I'm with you on the misting and spritzing...nervous! This card will be perfect if your hubby discovers the "mess" before you can clean it up LOL!!!

Gorgeous! What a cool technique and lucky you to have won that spot! You could teach a class on CAS, I am thinking!

Great card Tracey. I think the spritzing looks very nice.

Ooh, love the misting!

Jeanne J said...

Oh how neat - first to win a class and then to play with this technique! That background is amazing! Loved reading your blog - I think your husband will be happy when you tell him you didn't go buy a mister box! Boys!!

Gorgilicious, Tracey, and sooo brave! I have no sprays at all, except hair spray and that crap is all over the bathroom door and wall, so you can imagine what I'd do to the Playhouse! You did a wonderful job with it, with your whole card! That sentiment in the circle is the best!!

Gayatri said...

Cathy Weber said...

Tracey you crack me up! No reason for you to feel nervous...your cards are always great and I love the story of the laundry room sink...how disappointing to have to start over, but your result was perfect. I can't wait to see all you learn in your class.

Jodene said...

Awesome card Tracey. Love the big dots.

This is gorgeous Tracey, - I really love that background and that sentiment if just right.

Emily Keaton said...

How lucky you were to win a spot in this class! I am so jealous ;-). I think your homework card is just beautiful! Way to go being brave with the spritz. Did you get your laundry sink cleaned up okay?

Barb Ghig said...

This is GORGEOUS! I love the subtle misting and the sentiment is just perfect! I think you'll be forgiven after he sees this beauty :-)

laughadaisy said...

LOL! ;-) Sorry about the sink, but your card is so, so cute. I love what you've done here!

Renee said...

Perfect!! :)
That sentiment...
I've had it pinned in quotes for...
a LONG time...
so I absolutely die over it! :)
And it's perfect for this card...
love everything about it! :)

Jean said...

I really like how you used the smooch spray with the circle cover plate ~ I bought some of the Mr. Huey sprays, and have only used a splatter technique. Congrats on winning a spot in the class! Love the sketch you chose!
