Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas Card

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.

Today I am giving you a sneak peek at a product that will be in the upcoming mini catalog.  As a demonstrator, I could order early to showcase what some the great new products will be.  The  bundle I am using today is called  Quite Curvy and has a coordinating Curvy Die.   It was a joy using this new set so get your wish list started for this November release.

Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals 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.  Thank you Mary Deatherage for the inspiration to use the DSP paper to cut out my flower!

The recipe:

Card base: Soft Suede 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Sentiment mat: Soft Suede die cut with the Hippo and Friends Die (medium)

The details:

  • Die cut your poinsettia from the DSP that matches up to the die in the Poinsettia Die set
  • Die cut two more poinsettias from Whisper White card stock and the Poinsettia Die
  • Glue the two White die cuts together and then glue the DSP poinsettia on top of the stacked die (this give some body and depth to the flower)
  • Stamp 3 small leaves; 2 in Old Olive Ink onto Old Olive card stock and 1 in Garden Green Ink onto Garden Green card stock
  • Die cut 3 solid berry stems from the Poinsettia Dies using Brushed Copper Metallic card stock

The sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set with Early Espresso Ink onto the small Whisper White Hippo and Friends Die
  • Mat the sentiment with the medium Soft Suede Hippo and Friends Die cut

Putting the card together:

  • Adhere the Whisper White mat onto the card front

  • Adhere the stacked poinsettia to the left of the sentiment with Dimensioanls
  • Tuck the holly leaves under the poinsettia petal and adhere with a glue dot

  • Add a copper bow from the Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack to the left side of the poinsettia

Alternate Monday Autumn Greeting meets Tis the Season

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! Autumn Greetings:

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 8-1/2 x 7, scored at 3-1/2

One extra card front: Whisper White 8-1/2 x 3-1/2

Mat: Real Red 6-1/8 x 3-1/4

DSP panel:  Tis the Season 6 x 3-1/8

Sentiment: Whisper White 7/8 x 5-1/4  punched on the end with the Banner Triple Punch

The details:

  • Stamp the floral image from the Autumn Greeting stamp set onto Whisper White card stock with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink
  • Color the image with your Stampin Blends as follows:
  • Large flowers: Real Red
  • Oak leaves: Shaded Spruce
  • Maple Leaves: Granny Apple Green
  • Dahlia: Light Gray Granite
  • Wheat: Real Red
  • Eucalyptus: Old Olive
  • Berries: Cherry Cobbler
  • Pumpkin: Light Pumkin Pie then cover the front of the pumpkin with a bit of Gold Stickles (use anything gold metallic that you have in your stash)
  • When you have the image colored you can cut it  out with the Autumn Essentials Dies (I did not have the die so I fussy cut the image out)

The sentiment:

  • Stamp your Sentiment using the saying from the For Unto Us stamp set
  • Ink the image  in Versa Mark Ink
  • Use Gold Emboss Powder over the sentiment and then heat set the image with your heat tool

Putting the card together:

  • Wrap a piece of Real Red ribbon from All the Trimmings  Ribbon pack around the card front panel
  • Attach this panel to the front of the card
  • Adhere the DSP panel to the Real Red mat
  • Attach the Real Red/DSP panel to the front of the card centering it
  • Attach your floral image to the front left of the card with Dimensionals
  • Tuck your sentiment on the front of the card with Glue Dots

Finishing details:

  • Adhere a Real Red bow from All the Trimmings Ribbon Pack to the top of the left hand side of the floral image with a Glue Dots
  • Add a few Gilded Gems here and there on the front of the card and you are finished
