It is week two of my online card class. I am enjoying the color combinations they give us each week. They have been bright and fun and not what I would come up with at all. Which is good, because I tend to choose the same kind of combos over and over again. I have also appreciated that I am using paper I have and not running to the store to buy stuff. I think I am a bit intimidated by all the stamping techniques the class is teaching. While they are great ideas, I am easily frustrated with rubber stamping. I haven’t quite stepped up to trying them, so I am pretty much using my punches and Cricut.
Here is the color combo for week two:
And my card:
The cake is cut from the Cuttin’ Up cartridge and the zig-zag and candles are sizzix dies. The sentiment is a Stampin’ Up stamp. My paper is scraps I had on hand form Joann’s and Archiver’s.
I used the sketch from this week’s Mojo Monday and am posting my card there also.
