Kick Start Class

Yesterday was the beginning of the newest Online Card Classes class called Kick Start. The class is full of ideas to kick start your inspiration when you are having trouble coming up with ideas for cards.

I have been keeping a Pinterest board of cards that I like. So to make the card below, I picked two different cards that had elements that I liked.

The first element was the color blocked background. I stamped a piece of white card stock with Versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I cut the card stock into four pieces and used four different colors of Tim Holtz Distress Ink to color them.

The second element is the strip of card stock with a flower. I punched out two flowers and curled the petals on the top one for a little dimension. A gem in the center added a bit of sparkle.

I'm happy that the card turned out just the way I hoped it would.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am in your Kick Start class and your card caught my eye. Love how you used to the different colors with the same stamp pattern. Awesome card!
