Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! True Love 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.

I had a scrap of the True Love DSP left over from my blog hop card and this is how I came up with my card today.  I just did not want to waste that beautiful paper and used the odd piece that was left over for another offset card design.

Stampin’ Up! True Love Card:

The recipe:

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

Front Panel: Whisper White 4-1/4 x 5-1/2

Offset panel: True Love DSP Cut offset  any dimension works  Mine is 2-1/4″ across the top and 3-1/4″ across the bottom

Offset panel mat: Basic Black

Sentiment: 1/2 x 6 (to be cut down to fit later)

The details:

  • Emboss the Whisper White panel with the Tasteful Textile EF
  • Adhere this panel to the front of the card
  • After you cut your offset DSP lay the corners 1/8″ inside the upper left corner of a piece of Basic Black card stock
  • Take this to your trimmer and trim the  other two side to match the edges of the top corner trim
  • Adhere your offset panel to the right top side of the card front with Dimensionals
  • Die cut 3 sets of the sentiment “Hello” (this was a die from a Pinkfresh Studio Die) or other sentiment of your choice in Basic Black card stock
  • Glue 3 layers together to make the letter strong and have some dimension
  • Adhere the sentiment to the offset panel  on the front of the card

The sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment of your choice with Versamark ink
  • After you stamp with the Versamark go directly into your Melon Mambo ink and stamp the sentiment and then onto your Whisper white sentiment piece
  • Sprinkle the sentiment with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with your Heat Tool
  • Lay your sentiment under the offset panel and trim to fit the offset panel

More details:

  • Stamp your daisy 2 time in Melon Mambo Ink onto Whisper White card stock using the stamp from Daisy Lane
  • Punch both daisies out with the coordinating punch
  • Adhere the bottom daisy to the front of the offset panel
  • Layer the second daisy on top of the first one using a Dimensional
  • Die cut  the leaves from Pear Pizzazz card stock.  (I use the die from the Wild Rose Die Set )
  • Tuck the leaves under the daisy with glue dots
  • Finish the card off by adhering some Magenta Madness Enamel dots onto the front of the card for added bling

Card inspiration:

Here is the card from the Thursday Blog Hop that inspired the “Alternate” look
