Alternate Monday, Stampin’ Up, Flowers for Every Season and Forever Fern meets Daisy Lane

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! Flowers for Every Season:

The recipe:

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

Panel: Bumble Bee 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 Embossed on the right side with the  Greenery EF

Strips: Flowers for Every Season DSP 1 x 5-1/2 (you need one each of two different papers)

Sentiment: Whisper White  die cut with the largest Stitched Circle Die

Sentiment mat: Misty Moonlight die cut the the Layering Circle die with the scalloped edge

The details:

  • Using the images from the Forever Greenery stamp set, stamp the following:
  • 3-small leaf clusters: Just Jade Ink
  • Die cut the leaf clusters out with the Forever Flourishing Dies
  • Die cut 4 Misty Moonlight small leaves using the Forever Flourishing Dies
  • Stamp the medium daisy (twice) from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set in Bumble Bee Ink
  • Punch the daisy out with the Medium Daisy Punch
  • Glue the two daisy layers together with liquid Glue

The sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment using the saying from the Forever Fern Stamp set in Vera Mark Ink
  • Sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder over the image
  • Heat emboss the sentiment with your heat gun
  • Adhere your sentiment to the Midnight Madness  Layering Circle scallop mat

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere your Bumble Bee embossed panel to the front of the card
  • Adhere your two DSP strips to the left hand side of the front of the card
  • Attach your sentiment to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Adhere your  medium daisy to the sentiment piece with Dimensioanls
  • Tuck in all the other leaves to make your arrangement using Glue Dots

Finishing touches:

  • Tuck in a few of the gold leaves from the Forever Greenery Laser Specialty paper (I know it the photo the leaves look black, trust me, they are gold and look amazing in real life)
  • Adhere a few Gilded Gold Gems to the sentiment and you are done
