Clean and Simple Card Class Lessons 3 & 4

Hi Everyone,
Happy Friday!  I don't know about you but I am so happy today is Friday.  I am looking forward to a wonderful long weekend.  The only thing on our agenda  is Saturday night is date night for me and my hubby!  The boys are going to spend the night with my mom!  I think we are going to go out for dinner and then come home and watch a movie on Roku!  We haven't watched a movie together that is not Disney in like FOREVER! 

As you know I signed up for the Clean and Simple card class with Jennifer Mcguire and friends.  I decided to combine lessons 3 & 4 because I just did not  have enough time to do both assignments and these 2 seemed to fit together with what I wanted to create.

Lesson 3- Make a card that is monochromatic using some sort of die cut.
Lesson 4- Use a stamp in a new way.

When I saw the lesson plan for lesson 3 I knew I wanted to use my Hero Arts layering papers in the lilac color and I knew I wanted to use my butterfly die from Paper Trey Ink; however, I didn't get around to actually make it.  Life got in the way.  Then Lesson 4's plan came and then I knew I wanted to use my Hero Arts "Thank You" background stamp.  So I combined the two with stamping on my butterfly as well as the background.  I loved how it turned out,  To finsh it off I heat embossed the sentiment in white and added some pearls.  Loved how it turned out!


Supplies
paper, stamps, ink, pearls- hero arts
die- paper trey ink

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back this weekend with my last lesson for the week.  I hope you are enjoying all my new cards.  See you later!
Hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!
