I was up for the challenge. I decided to use the same stamp set they did! I did buy it thinking I really would need it for the class. At first I was not sure I should because I was afraid my cards would look the same. But I am proud to say that only one looked similar. I love taking the inspiration and going for something different.
Challenge #1 – Clean and Simple
For this card I really wanted to use my embossing folder that gives that geometric look. I love it.
Challenge #2 – Classic and Elegant
This card I really did a similar card to the instructor. I could not help myself as it was such a pretty card. I changed it up a little and I really liked how it came out.
Challenge #3 – Cute and Whimsical
For this challenge I used a barn die I had from Papertrey Ink. The little barn doors open to the Christmas Tree inside. I had a heck of a time finding a little wreath for the barn. I thought for sure Michaels would carry one since they have a ton of Jolie Stickers. The did have this cute beaded one from their own line Recollections. I did add a little cardinal to bring in the Christmas cheer. I think it came out cute.
Challenge #4 – Shimmer and Shine
I decided to emboss foil paper for the background and stamp on the shiny bell.
Challenge #5 – Soft and Subtle
Well…..you know when you try to make a card and it just does not do it for you… this is the one. Something is just wrong with it. I don’t know what. Maybe I was tired. I did like the glittery embossing powder but that was about it. I guess I do not need to love all my creations!
