Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Blended Season

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

The Leaves:

  • Stamp the leaf image a couple of times onto a piece of Whisper White card stock with Tuxedo
    Black Ink
  • Color in the leaves using your Stampin Blends as follows:
  • Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Crumb Cake shaded with Bronze. I added some Bronze highlights to the leaf tips and blended the brown color in with the light shade of the base color with the Stampin blend
  • Fussy cut your leaf images out with your paper snips
  • Adhere your leaf cutout over the stamped image on the front of the art piece, some with glue dots and some  with dimensionals
  • Add a Corrugated Shape with a dimensional to the group of leaves

Even more details:
