Are you still there?

Hello? Hello?

Hey! I know I've been missing since after Thanksgiving, please accept my sincere apologies. It's not that I haven't been crafting at all just not a lot. :( Am I the only one who has trouble finding their footing after the whirlwind of holidays? Anyway, I have a card today using Kathy's Lily Pad Palette . . . .actually I have two!

I decided to take Jennifer, Julie and Kristina's Clean and Simple card making class. At first I was a little hesitant but I am so grateful that I did! It's just what I needed to get a foot hold :) In day two Julie talked making a flat card but building in layers. This is my attempt and I really like it.

The photo just does not do it justice. I'm going to try and post a better one later. I masked by cutting out the label die (Spellbinders, Labels Two) and using repositionable adhesive. I also masked the flower (Hero Arts, Flower Blossom) leaving a white border. The mist is Turquoise Blue from Tattered Angels. It is so shimmery in real life and that maybe why it's photographing so poorly.

Thanks for coming back to visit after this crazy long hiatus and it's not too late to join in on the card class.

I'll be back to show how I used the mask in my next post!


  1. Hi Kelly, you really made a wonderfully creative card, and the clean and simple style makes it so special! Loving how you used the color palette with the masked/color blocked label. I'm so glad that the Lily Pad color challenge and the Clean and Simple class got you back to stamping and posting, you were missed! Thanks for joining us Lily Pad Pond-ers.

  2. Hi Kelly, I love your background and this simple and clean style. The purple flower really pops on the blue. Love everything about your card. So happy to see that you are playing along with us at "Kathy's Lily Pad Palette Color Challenge." :)
