Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Brightly Gleaming Card

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! Brightly Gleaming Card:

The recipe:

Card base: Very Vanilla 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Night of Navy 4 x 5-1/4

DSP panel: Brightly Gleaming 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

Small mat: Copper 2-3/4 x 4-1/8

Art piece: Very Vanilla die cut with the  Stitched Rectangle Die that measures 2-5/8 x 4

Banner: Brightly Gleaming 2 x 5-1/2 punched at the bottom with the Banner Triple Punch

The details:

  • Stamp two of the holly images onto Very Vanilla card stock using Black Tuxedo Memento Ink from the Brightly Gleaming stamp set
  • Color in the leaves with your Mossy Meadow Stampin Blends
  • Color in the berries with your Night of Navy Stampin Blends
  • Add some Wink of Stella to the berries for added sparkle
  • Fussy cut the images out with your paper snips

The Sentiment:

  • Stamp your sentiment from the Brightly Gleaming  stamp onto the Very Vanilla art piece with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink
  • Add the tiny sprinkle dots using the image from Brightly Gleaming stamp set in Night of Navy.

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere your Night of Navy mat to the front of the card

  • Attach the art piece to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Adhere your holly leaves to the right bottom of the art piece with Glue Dots for one and Dimensioanls for the otherinishing touches:

Finishing Touches:
