Card Off With Jen, Card In A Box and Fancy Fold Card

When is comes to craftin', you can never have too much happy!


Last night, well early this morning {we finished at 1.30am!!!); Jen and I had a card off!
Our first project was a “Card In A Box”, with Jen’s creation to be shown as soon as my Stampin’ Up! order arrives.
You see, Jen purchased the “Backyard Basics” Bundle set {shhh shhh – hush hush!!!}, which consists of the Backyard Basics stamp set and matching framelits.
Jen made the box of her card, but wants to use this stamp set to compete it.
On the other hand, my card In a Box is ready to be shown!

Card In A Box by Kathe Oldham



I used the gorgeous “Tea For Two” Designer Series Paper, available on My Digital Studio download, and also in the Clearance Rack at the moment for only NZ$4.69


I also used the gorgeous “Flower Shop” stamp set and matching Pansy Punch. “Papillion Potpourri” stamp set and matching Butterfly Punch.


I stamped the 6 butterflies in Black StazOn Ink + used Blender Pens in to colour and blend the beautiful wings of the butterflies in Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo and Strawberry Slushy.


The sentiment on the back of the card is coloured with “Old Olive” and “Melon Mambo” Stampin’ Markers, and stamped from the “Yippee-Skippee!” stamp set.


I punched the leaves from the Bird Builder Punch, and hand drew the veins of the leaves on with the Old Olive Stampin’ Maker.



Black and White Fancy Fold Card by Jen Hassloch



Whilst I completed my Card In A Box, Jen created this gorgeous card using a hybrid of products.


Jen truly masters the art of thinking outside the box {no pun intended!!!}.


Jen stamped on coloured cardstock with Versamark, and heat-set Black Embossing Powder, and then added a multiple of colours using the Blender Pens, to create dimensionalised flowers that popped from her black and white fancy fold card.


Jen used the gorgeous “Flower Shop” stamp set and matching Pansy Punch, + the “Mixed Bunch” stamp set and the Blossom Punch AND the Chevron Border Punch.


The special sentiment on the inside of the card that says “You can never have too much happy” is from the “Yippee-Skippee!” stamp set, and is coloured with “Old Olive” and “Melon Mambo” Stampin’ Markers.


This gorgeous card is case’d from an idea by Julie Davsion, as shared by Sally at a recent Crafty Wenches get-together.
