"Card Off Challenge": With Jen On Thursday 18.02.2016


So excited that Jen and I had time for anther “Card Off Challenge”.
The card I had created was featured in my “Create With Kathe” Class week.
So as I taught my Class, Jen tweaked the card, but still used the same base of Stampin’ Up! products.
I always love to see the outcome of Jen’s tweaking, as she is a master of colour!
As you can see from the two cards, the original was Portrait, and Jen’s switched hers up to Landscape
The stamp sets featured are “Birthday Blooms” and “Timeless Elegance”, these two are my absolute favourites from the new Occasions Catalogue.
The pretty flower on the original card was is soft tones of Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaroon and Pear Pizzazz.
Jen’s flower was in deepening colours, perhaps with a touch of Rich Razzleberry, and she coloured the background of the flower, by adding a wash of Tempting Turquoise.
Both cards have faux stitching, created using the “Updated Essentials” Paper Piercing Pack, and the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.
If you look super close at the “Sahara Sand” layer, you will also find heaps of stamping using the “Timeless Textures” stamp set and Soft Suede and Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pads.
Jen’s card was framed in Blackberry Bliss and a cute sparkly embellishment added to the top right-hand corner, and some gorgeous pleated ruffled ribbon {Venetian Crochet Trim and Seam Binding}.
I always love a touch of shabby chic, so in my card I added a Doily, fabric rose, ruffled ribbon {Venetian Crochet Trim and Seam Binding}, and a beautiful Brad, from the “Antique Brads” collection.
At the end of the day {or night as it had become}, it was a draw!!!
