Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Band Together

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! Band Together:

I used Stampin Blends and the dies on this card. My inspiration card used watercolor paper and re-inkers.

 

Here is the recipe:

Card base: Granny Apple Green 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Highland Heather 5-1/4 x 4

Embossed piece: Whisper White 5-1/8 x 3-7/8 using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder

Here are the details:

The flower and leaves:

 

  • Stamp your flower  and leaves (5 leaves) from the Band Together Stamp Set  with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock
  • Color the flower with  your Highland Heather Stampin Blends
  • Your  flower center is  colored with your Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend
  • The leaves are colored using your Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends
  • Using the Detailed Bands dies, die cut your flower and leaves

 

More details:

 

  • Die cut your band from the Details Bands Die in Granny Apple Green card stock
  • Cut another identical band using Whisper White card stock. (this is for your sentiment)
  • Adhere your Embossed mat to the Highland Heather mat
  • Attach this panel to the front of the card
  • Adhere the Detailed Band to the front of the card
  • Stamp your sentiment from the Band Together Stamp Set onto the Whisper White insert
  • Attach the sentiment to the front of the card with dimensionals
  • Attach your flower with dimensionals
  • Attach your leaves with glue dots
  • Add some Pearls cluster, coloring some with your dark Highland Heather Stampin Blend
  • Dab a bit of Wink of Stella on the flower center and leaves for added sparkle
  • You are done!

      Thank you Julie. I wanted to use two different mediums so show a variety of coloring. My fav is the blue one just because I’m having fun watercoloring.
      The purple one is so bright and summery
