Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic

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.

  • Stamp your flower cluster in Blushing Bride Ink onto the art piece using the Tropical Chic stamp set
  • Stamp 3 extra large flowers in Blushing Bride Ink onto a piece of scrap Whisper White card stock and die cut the flowers out

  • Stamp one fan leaf onto Whisper White card stock using Granny Apple Green Ink, thumped around the edges with Shaded Spruce, die cut it out
  • Stamp the splatters in Black Ink using the splatter stamp from Heart Come Home stamp set

  • Adhere your large die cut flowers with dimensionals over the stamped images
  • Adhere your fan leaf with glue dots
