Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday Nature’s Prints Card

Happy Monday Stampers, Its Alternate Monday time!

What is Alternate Monday???  This 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! Nature’s Prints Card:

The Details:

  • The art piece is stamped using the leaf images from the Natures Prints stamp set as follows:
  • Gingo leaves: Starry Sky

Finishing Touches:
