Day 4 - Clean and Simple 4

Hi!

Today's cards are from playing with the fun techniques shown on day 4 of the online card class, Clean and Simple 4.


I first have to apologize because I am in a huge hurry today and will not be sharing any links to products, so if you have any questions, just ask in a comment below and I'll do my best to get an answer to you.

My first card uses the faux dry embossing technique shared by Yana. You use die-cuts to create the look. 


My next card is a fun one! I love using embossing paste and I really enjoyed trying to layer the paste using different stencils! This was inspired by Jocelyn Olson's beautiful card!



I didn't really love how this turned out so I wanted to try it again with two different stencils.


I sure am enjoying this class! 

I'm off to get some other, non-crafty things done around here! The house and chores have been neglected this week, to say the least!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by! ♥
