This is the first time I am trying this progressive Scrap it sounds like fun so here is my Day 1. I recolored one of the papers to make more of a burnt red to match the paper for the one heart. Instructions: Pick one paper as your background paper. Cut 1 heart shape each out of all the other papers (size of the hearts is up to you) and add them. (so you have one background paper and 6 different paper hearts)You can recolor and/or crop the pieces or change their opacity but you have to use them as specified in each day's instructions and once placed are not allowed to move them. Make sure you save your layout in a .psd format so you are able to place new pieces below others if you should wish to do so.

I'm not sure if this card really qualifies for clean and simple (it is not especially clean nor simple, although maybe Jennifer would think so ;). It does have texture and that is what I was going for with the background white embossed on watercolor paper then swiped through distress inks for the background) just added a few (that magic #3) hearts to it and used it for my niece's birthday card. Oh and I added a banner strip on the inside and small paper strip on the bottom to add a bit more of the blue and tie it all together. I love the colors!
On Day 6 of the onlinecardclasses CS2 class we were supposed to use a sketch that was already done for you. I had my own thought of a very easy sketch with hearts coming down the page and a sentiment for Valentine's Day saying falling for you... So here is my version.

This card I made with nice bright colors but the stamp I used did not lend itself well to the gradient stamping technique. I needed a baby card so I thought the sentiment I added was fitting as I LOVE all babies!!! THey are all adorable, lovely and sweet! Well this turned out well, better than I thought it would when I figured out the stamp wasn't so great for this technique...
Day 3 of the Clean and Simple Card class at onlinecardclasses.com. I decided to try stamping in a technique called gradient stamping. This first attempt wasn't too bad but I should have stamped off more with this new stamp as the first few colors did not come off well and look weak...Live and learn right?! (not so sure but I do need to!)
This weekend I got a chance to do some of the homework for a card class I am taking online through onlinecardclasses.com. The idea is a card that has created the illusion of dimension and depth on flat surfaces. Here is my first attempt I made:
