Smile: Happiness is Contagious!!

Happy Friday!!

Just popping in with a card I created for the Online Card Class: Spring Card Camp 2. I am so happy that I took this class!! So far the techniques have been ones I have used but then the designers KICKED them up a notch!!

Yesterday's homework was to make your own stripes. Here is the card I created.

I used the colors from a Design Seeds color card to pick the colors for this card. I wanted to try to step out of my comfort zone!!

I originally wanted to make it a one layer card but as always happens, I tore my paper when taking off some of the tape and had to improvise.

I used Honey Bee Stamps "Zen Floral Stamps" to stamp inside most of my stripes that I blended on this card.

I stamped "Smile," a sentiment from My Favorite Things, in black on the striped panel and then emphasized it with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen and Glossy Accents. It almost looks like it is a die cut!!

I will be creating my next homework assignment after work to post tomorrow. I have never been successful with the next technique so cross your fingers that I can get it to work!!!

I am also going to be posting this on the NBUS Challenge Blog as I have had these Honey Bee Stamps for a while but have never used them. 

I appreciate you taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!
