Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday “Petal Palette”

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 floral image in Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock
  • Using your Calypso Coral Colored pencils color in the flower and blend the colors with your Blender Pen
  • I darkened some of the flower using the Stampin Marker in Calypso Coral and blended and dabbed with my Blender Pen for added depth
  • Use your Old Olive Colored Pencil to color in your leaves and blend the color with your Blender Pen
  • Die cut the flower out with the Petals and More Thinlits Die and adhere to the front of the card with dimensionals
  • Die cut the leaf pieces from the Petals and More Thinlits Dies in Basic Black card stock and tuck these behind your floral image.
  • Add a Calypso Coral bow, some Enamel Shapes and Rhinestones to complete your card
