Hello friends! I have something different for you today. My PTI package showed up right before the weekend. (Well truth be told I had to tussle with UPS to get it... but thats another very long story...) I got some cardmaking in over the weekend- I even got photos taken!
I started with an aqua mist base. Then I took the new sunshine set and made the rays. You can see that they are not perfectly spaced- but this was my first attempt with them and I was cool with how it came out. Next I took the limitless layer dies and cut quite a few out and begin stacking. I did cut some of the leaves so its not like these are all still hooked together. I stamped them with their coordinating stamps in Hawaiian Shores ink. I added a congratulations sentiment on a diagonal ribbon strip. That's all there was to it.
The next thing I am even more excited about. A few months ago I bought Photoshop Elements so I could watermark my cards. Yes I paid 80 bucks to watermark my cards. Then I had this great editing program that I wanted to fully use but I had no clue how. I am pretty computer savvy but this program is not the most intuitive plus its HUGE. So yesterday I signed up for a free class by Jessica Sprague. Here's what I made:
This is after half of one free class. That Jessica Sprague is something else. I had never taken an online class before but this was really good. So good in fact, that I just bought two more classes. They are 20% off right now! Stock up! LOL! Anyway its amazing how much easier Photoshop is when you actually have a clue to what you are doing.
