Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Another Floral Essence 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.

Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence:

I turned this card from portrait to landscape, changed stamp sets and color to make this “Alternate Look”  It is amazing how different they look by mixing it up a bit!


The recipe:

Card base: Soft Suede 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Terracotta Tile 5-1/4 x 4

DSP panel: Mosaic Mood  5-1/8 x 3-7/8

Die cut edge panel: Mint Macaron  5-1/8 x 1-1/2  (die cut the bottom on this panel with the die from Magnolia Memory)

DSP panel on top of the Die cut panel: Mosaic Mood 5-1/8 x 2

The details:

  • Stamp your floral images with Terracotta Tile Ink stamp.   (1 large flower and 2 small flower using the image from Floral Essence Stamp Set onto Whisper White Card Stock)
  • Color in the flowers centers using your dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend
  • Fussy cut your flowers with paper snips
  • Stamp your leaves in Garden Green Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock
  • Punch them out with the leaf punch

Putting the card together:

  •  Adhere the layers as follows:
  • Adhere your large Mosaic Mood panel the the Terracotta Tile mat
  • Adhere your small piece of DSP on top of the Mint Macaron die cut panel, letting the die cut end show about 1/2 inch
  • Wrap a piece of Textile Ribbon around the DSP/die cut panel
  • Adhere the panel to the center of the matted panel
  • Attach this stack to the front of the card
  • Adhere your 3 flowers, with dimensionals and glue dots
  • Tuck in your leaves under the flowers and adhere with glue dots
  • Add a Textile  bow to the cluster of 2  flowers

The sentiment:

  • Stamp your sentiment from the Praiseworthy Prose Stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White Card Stock (4 x 3/4)
  • Punch the end your sentiment out with the Triple Banner Punch
  • Adhere this to the front of the card with glue dots
  • Add some Terracotta Tile Faceted Dots for added dimension
