Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Just Because

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! Just Because:

Here is the recipe:

Card base: Old Olive 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Whisper White 4 x 5-1/4

DSP: Wood Grain DSP 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

Frame: Whisper White made with the Stitched Rectangle Framelits

Art Piece: Whisper White Stitched Rectangle Framelit 2-1/4 x 3-1/2

Here are the details:

  • Stamp your image onto the Rectangle art piece with tuxedo Memento Black Ink
  • Color in the image as follows with your Stampin Blends
  • Flower Pot : Cajun Craze, Leaves: Granny Apple Green and Old Olive

 More details:

  • Mount you Wood Grain DSP to the Whisper White mat
  • Mount the frame to the Wood Grain DSP
  • Wrap a piece of Linen Thread around the panel
  • Mount this panel to the front of the card with dimensionals
  • Mount your matted art piece to the front of the card with dimensionals
  • Add a matching bow to the left side of the card
  • Pop a Granny Apple Green Sequin to the right side of the art piece and your are done

Here is the card inspiration:

    Thank you Julie. This was my initial card for the hop. I then made the alternate card and ended up using that for the hop instead
