It's Monday, and time for a new bundle of the week.  This week I will be featuring the Quiet Meadow Stamp set and the coordinating Meadow Dies.  This bundle (which is no longer sold as a bundle) has been available for a while, but it is new to me as I just recently purchased it.

Honestly, I don't know what took me so long.  The stamp images and sentiments are awesome in this stamp set.  And while no Meadow Dies were used on today's cards, I know I am going to get a lot of use out of these dies.  For more information refer to my Product List at the bottom of the post.



Today I am actually sharing two cards which are "similar" but "different," and I would like to know which one you like best.  THIS one?  or THAT one?

Both cards use a coloring on Vellum Technique, and I first shared these cards on my Learning with Friends video series.

On both cards the floral images were stamped on Vellum Cardstock with Black Stazon ink.  "THIS" card was colored with Stampin' Write Markers on the front of the Vellum.  "THAT" card was colored with Stampin Blends on the back of the Vellum.  

To learn tips about coloring on Vellum as well as a couple of additional ways to use vellum cardstock watch my Learning with Friends video.

On "THIS" card the vellum was mounted over one of the patterns from Bright and Beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Because the colored image is darker when it is colored on the front of the vellum it still shows very nicely even though it is over a colored background.

On "THAT" card the vellum was mounted over Basic White cardstock.  When coloring on the back of the Vellum the color is softer less intense, so it looks best when backed by white or a very light-colored cardstock.  Before adhering the Vellum, I stamped a couple of the word images from the Quiet Meadow stamp set with Old Olive Ink on the Basic White background.

My question for you is, "which card do you like best?"  Do you like THIS card or THAT card and why did you choose the one you did?  Will you leave me a comment and let me know?

The insides of the cards were decorated similarly.



I used a strip of the same DSP that was used for the card fronts to add a little color to the inside of the card.

Below are links to a free tutorial for each card.
