Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Band Together

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.

Stampin’ Up! Band Together

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White card stock 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Calypso Coral 4 x 5-1/4

Art piece: Whisper White card stock 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

The details:


  • Stamp the floral image from the Band Together stamp set onto the Whisper White card stock art piece using  Black Tuxedo Memento Ink
  • Color in the flower with your Calypso Coral Stampin Blends
  • Color in your leaves with your Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends
  • Color the centers with Mango Melody Stampin Blends
  • Add a touch of Calypso Coral Stampin Blend to the leaves and Blend the color in the your Granny Apple Green Stampin Blend
  • Outline the flower with Light Pool Party to add some dimension to the flower
  • Adhere your art piece onto the Calypso Coral mat
  • Wrap a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine around the stacked panel
  • Adhere the panel to the front of the card with Dimensionals

More details:


  • Stamp the “happy” from the Seaside Notion stamp set with versa mark ink onto Basic Black card stock
  • Emboss the “happy’ with White Embossing Powder and heat set with your heat gun
  • Die cut the word “birthday” with Basic Black card stock using the die from Well Written
  • Adhere the “happy to the front of the card and on top of the Bakers Twine with glue dots
  • Adhere the ‘birthday” to the front of the card with liquid glue
  • Add a double Whisper White Bakers Twine bow to the left of the “happy” sentiment

Finishing Touches:

  • Add a double Whisper White Bakers Twine bow to the left of the “happy” sentiment

    All are beautiful! That said, I really love the hot pink with the black and white, so I guess I would have to pick Thursdays card as the fav. Thanks for sharing your creative ideas.
