Today’s lesson at Spring CardCamp 2022 was Color Blocking using die cut cards. I was able to create the card using the same die and colors as the presenter Keisha Charles. Used press n seal after die cutting to keep all the pieces in order then chosing certain ones to color and then glue in place. The large pink flower petals are popped up on foam squares…clever….to give extra dimension. It did get a little confusing when I took all of the petals for the same color to be ink blended then forgot where they belonged. I had to fit some of them back in the die for the proper location. LOL.
The second card in the class uses color blocking by cutting apart the coverplate die. Angles were not my friend even with a diagram from Keisha, I couldn’t get it quite right but it’s better than horrible!!!! I even used a scrap template! I dry embossed the pincushion die before cutting it apart for a little more detail.
It was a fun day in class.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

Pretty cards! You did a great job with the lessons. Nice that you had the supplies Keisha used.
The first one is breathtaking. Well done my friend. Your wonky angles is quite pleasing as is. Working for perfection is over rated.
Thanks, Bonnie, I appreciate your support.
I love the first one and smiled at your description of the 2nd. Like you angles are not my friend so I’m not surprised you had a few issues. I like it though. One doesn’t notice the wonky lines because the colours are what draws the eye. You are doing well with these classes and the results show it.
LOL, Johanna, I even had a template and it was off but I think I will try this technique again at some time.
Great job on these! Hey, you figured out a way to figure out exactly where the pieces went, which is smart! I like your angle card, even without them being “perfect”. Great work on both of these.
Thanks, Golda, it was a challenge needing concentration. I may attempt that angle card again.
Gayle, you are just rocking these classes. Both of these are so beautiful. I like your wonky angles and agree with Bonnie, perfection is overrated
Thanks, Gerry, I even made a template and my cuts were off….LOL
