Paying Homage to Clean & Simple

Hey all. I told ya I have been taking the Clean & Simple class by Jen McGuire, Kristina Werner & Julie Ebersole...this class is UNBELIEVABLY GOOD!!! I so love it. I wish it wouldn't end. I have created more cards in a week than I normally create in a month. I'm loving the Clean & Simple way and they really have shown some great ways to get that WOW effect. I'm very detail oriented so this has been a huge challenge for me...but I made 3 cards in one day!!! It usually takes me 3 days to make 1 card...crazy, I know.

So today I am going to share my CAS cards from Day 7-- this day's lesson was "Plainly White" I am behind on them as I have been making cards for other things and I have a large project going on...I'll catch up one day soon. I won't be posting them in order either. Anyhow, here are the cards:

Now a card with lots of WHITE is not me. All that white freaks me right out! But...I bit the bullet and this is what I came up with:

love hearts CAS 2

This first one is pretty self explanatory. It's clean, it's simple. It's my first attempt and it's eh...ok. I do love those new Hero stamps and I feel like I just didn't do the stamp justice. It needs more but I am leaving it. I also used the new Echo Park Yours Truly 6x6 papers on it.

The next one was super hard to me but came to me after Julie's lesson on lot's o' white and I remembered an embellishment they had linked to back on another day and I thought it would be fun to make a card out of an embellishment. The inspiration for the embellishment came from Maile Belles. You can see the inspiration on this wreath card. I loved the little flower made out of a button. The second I saw the button on this card by Maille my card just came to me. It came out exactly like it looked in my head. I had to walk away though because I almost couldn't take all the white. I came back later and realized I really did like it.

That's all for today. I have some really fun, colored cards for Monday! See you then! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
