CAS Classes #2-Bonus Day 1

OK, So l will keep this post short & sweet, l was a little excited to wake up to a Bonus Day email today and as with every class so far, l was not disappointed with the content, these girls are amazing!
Today's class was all about Die Cutting. JJ Bolten shared some great tips on nesting dies and a cool card idea that l just had to attempt. I say attempt, because l don't have any standard square dies to get the same effect, so l used my Window Framelits from SU and although my card is rather different, the technique was the same.....anyhoo, here's my first card.

The second card l have to share is pretty much a case of the great card Kelly Rasmussen shared today.
The techniques she showed were masking and altering your sentiments, l used the Tasteful trim die from SU to create the chevron pattern mask and just a note, you may want to tape it down really well, mine moved slightly in the middle, no biggie as l am keeping them as samples, but not great if you are giving them away.

Well that's it from me for week one, l will be back during the week with more fun ideas from the talented ladies at Online Classes.
             "Thanks for stopping by & have a great week"
