Card Off With Jen, 15.05.2014

I did NOT take the Thursdays evening Class off {unlike last week}, as Jen and I had a “Card Off” challenge, that lasted till 1am, + we went through a whole packet of Chewy Caramel Tim Tams!!!
After many giggles, we were down to the last one, which Jen kindly offered to me, however when I slid the packet open there were 2 left, so we had one each … ahhhh Bliss!!!

Project 1 “Floral Card”

We both started with the same sheet of cardstock “Coastal Cabana” and “Pool Party”, and the stamp set “Secret Garden” and went for it!
My card also featured the {embossed in Clear Embossing Powder} “En Francais” stamp set, and “Happy Watercolor” {embossed in White Embossing Powder}.


We did some hand painting with the Aqua Painters in Tempting Turquoise and Coastal Cabana + tried out Jen’s new H2Os.
I choose to add a sentiment {in Gold Embossing Powder} from the “Chalk Talk” stamp set, with the wording “I am so grateful there is you in the world”, and on in the inside of the card, also in Gold Embossing Powder are the words “Thanks so much” from the “Wetlands” stamp set.
My card is finished off with the gorgeous "Watercolour Wonder" Washi Tape.


Jen’s card had a beautiful background, stamped and embossed {in Clear} with the “Secret Garden” stamp set, then hand-coloured using the H2Os


The finished touch on both cards, were the abundance of gorgeous Pearls.

Project 2“Nautical Card”

Our card-base{s} was Naturals White, and I used the “Circle Card Thinlits” dies, and stamped with the “Hardwood” stamp. The lining of the card is from the “Fan Fair” Designer Series Paper {My Digital Studio download}.
The flip-circle is stamped with the Ledger from ”The Open Sea” stamp set in Sahara Sand, then the Ship is stamped in Soft Suede, and the water is added with Aqua Painters and Pool Party.


The Compass is stamped in Night Of Navy and an Antique Brad is used.
Twine is then tied around the card and secured with a reef knot.
I stamped the Anchor {with Night of Navy on Naturals White} and fussy-cut, and tied with twine, which is attached to the twine wrapped around the card, and tied with a slip knot. The anchor rope can then move up and down the line!


The inside of the card is stamped in “Night Of Navy” {♥♥♥ this is my first time using the Night Of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad and I am in ♥ with this colour} with the “Wetlands” stamp. The sentiment “Birthday Greetings” is also from the “Wetlands” stamp set.


Jen’s card has the Ledger {from “The Open Sea”} stamped in the background of the sentiment, which is from the “Wetlands” stamp set and a Compass is then over-stamped in Night Of Navy.
The ship is fussy cut, and is adhered with Dimensionals.


Yet again, even thought with both stated with the same themes and crafty items available, our projects both look stunning, yet completely different!

Roll on next Card Off!
