clean & simple...day 1

I'm taking an online class about how to make clean & simple cards.  I signed up for the class because these are the hardest cards for me.  I find myself wanting to add various elements but I have to remember to pull back.

This card was based on a sketch from the first day of class.  Though there's not much going on here it took forever to find the right size stamp to place on the card.   I ended up with lemons/lime but my husband felt I was missing a key ingredient from the card...a drink!

Stamps: A muse, Paper Smooches
Supplies:  Copic Markers, Memento Ink, A muse paper

let's try this again...

I walked into my craft room the other day and found I have a room full of goodies waiting to be used.  So here's my attempt at using some of the old before I start with adding to my collection.

Here's a quick card for the Card Postioning Systems 249 sketch challenge.  It's super simple but just getting my feet wet again, I could use a bit of simple for now.

Stamps: Amuse Studio, Sassfrass
Supplies: Stampin Up scallop punch, W R memory keepers corner rounder, Copic markers, brilliance black ink.
