Clean & Simple #4 Day 4 - with Yana - Faux Embossing

I'm getting a late start today cause Thursday mornings I go shopping for my 94 year old dad, then we go to I-Hop for breakfast, and then I take him for a drive.   So I am a morning person as far as most things go including stamping.  Usually, I come home from that and sit and read and maybe take a nap (yes) take a nap....
So I Skyped with Colleen and she was still creating so I got one card done also.    Yeah for that.
Yana made her card with a word die so I thought I would try something different so chose the butterfly.   SSS Friendship Butterflies.
I had two different pink banners, but it just wasn't thrilling me, then decided on the red.  I think it is better.

Clean & Simple Class #4 Day 3- Velveteen Stamping by Karolyn Loncon

My two cards using Karolyn's technique -  Stamping a background stamp with white pigment ink and then stamping over with solid stamps to bring out the pattern in the backgound.
I used two separate backgrounds the red one is a diamond shape and the blue one is a leafy stamp
You can actually see the leafy stamp better than diamond.  
PTI's, Beautiful Butterflies &  Turning A New Leaf in Simply Chartreuse, Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Tropical Teal and Hawaiian Shores
Pretty Pink Posh sequins
 I tried Jennifer's Technique and it didn't work like hers and don't have any Gesso to try Julie's.

Clean & Simple Card Class #4 Kristina's Technique

My first card for the Clean & Simple Card Class which started today.  I have been struggling today trying to get a card made.  I don't have any background stamps that worked well for Jennifer's techniques.  So I went on to Kristina's technique and had better success.
I used PTI's Background Basics, Medallions in Berry Sorbet and embossed with gold embossing powder.
