When the new 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Catalog came out i was immediately drawn to the Forever Fern bundle. It’s no surprise, florals are always at the top of my list but in combination with the coordinating colors and I was sold. This is why it was my number 1 in my 5 favorite New Catalog Bundles if you missed that post catch it HERE.
After given the opportunity to enter a design challenge then host a card class the ball is now in YOUR court. Tell me which one of the pairs of cards you like best. Option A is on the left and B on the right.
Both cards were created using Stampin’ Blends or Stampin’ write Markers to color the background and a piece of Forever Gold Laser Cut Speciality foil paper. On both cards the foil piece was attached to Soft Seafoam with Tom Bow Glue, stamped with the sentiment in Pretty Peacock, colored and attached to the Pear Pizzaz base (yes, they are both the same color- but the photos were taken in very different lighting) with dimensionals.
Option A: Could not be a quicker project card one that you could even do on the run, just color and go. I used a softer color pallate with Light Pear Pizzaz and Light Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.
Option B: Features the bolder colors Garden Green and Old Olive. It is a bit more stepped up in difficulty with a really special butterfly which is as you know is my signature.
Let me tell you how that butterfuly was created with Butterfly Wishes stamp. First most of the color gradiation and shadows come from the stamp itself. Isn’t that AWESOME! If you stamp the image in black the whole thing would have a gray cast and much darker quality then I wanted so I stamped the image in the color by stamping off Pretty Peacock? and hand colored the black for the outline using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write. Fussy cut *cringe* the image and adhere with a dimensional.
Leave me a comment below and tell me know which option you prefer!
