Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Santa’s Workshop meets Swirly Bird

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! Swirly Bird for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our blog hop we have a sketch challenge for you.  I decided to use the last of my Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper for my card today.  As I was trying to figure out what else to use (I don’t have the matching stamp set and dies) I decided to use some old favorites.  With all the beautiful NEW products that come out, we tend to forget about  the ones that have been sitting  on our shelves. If you are like me and you don’t own everything, every once in awhile we have to go through our stash for  some old favorites. I did that today with Swirly Bird.  Enjoy the hop!

Stampin’ Up! “Joseph Coat Technique” meets “Winter Woods” for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a sketch challenge.  I had an idea to use the Joseph Coat technique  along with the Winter Woods stamp set to give my card a true fall feeling.  Well, after 4 attempts I found the color combination that I was happy with.  How fun it was to play and experiment.  I have not used this technique in a few years and thought it was time to try it again. I hope you try it too!  You can use it on so many stamp sets from fall leaves to dragonflies and flowers.  Give it a try and let me know what you create.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous for the Happy Inkin” Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today I am sharing a card from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  It was fun to get out a stamp set that has not seen any ink for awhile and  it fit perfectly with our sketch challenge too.  I am trying to use all the new colors with my cards because they are so yummy.  Today I used Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick.

Here is the sketch:

I turned my sketch vertical.  It is amazing how that changes the look.   I love those little tweaks that make each card unique
