Good morning everyone. Welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me. Every other Friday we do a challenge with each other. We choose the challenges ahead of time but we don’t show each other our creations which makes it fun for us too. Today’s challenge is “Sparkle & Shine”.
I decided to use the new Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper that is in the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. This paper is absolutely gorgeous. It has two sheets of six different background designs as well as some beautiful gold leaves and cut outs.
The colors I used for this card are Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Basic Black and of course, the beautiful gold background. The stamp set I chose is called Forever Blooms. I used a Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin Write Marker to color the rose and cut it out using the coordinating dies called Flowering Dies (and yes, you can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle). I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink and then layered everything together. I think the gold background of the laser cut paper just adds such elegance.
So now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made that is sparkly and shiny. Maybe they used the same Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper I used or it could be Wink of Stella, Foil Sheets or embellishments. Let’s go see!
This is so gorgeous, Susan! I love the foil accent with the beautiful flower. The foil is so striking, but it doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the card.
Oh my, this is gorgeous. I love that laser cut paper which is a perfect backdrop for this flower. Beautiful.
Gorgeous card, Susan! I love the gold laser-cut paper; so pretty 🙂
