Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow

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! Bloom and Grow:

The recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Whisper White 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 embossed with the Pinewood Planks EF

Small mat: Rich Razzleberry 4-1/8 c 3-3/8

Panel: 6×6  Brights DSP in Bermuda Bay  4 x 3-1/4

Sentiment: Whisper White (Stitched Nested Labels)

The details:

the floral:

  • Stamp your floral image  from the Bloom and Grow stamp set onto Whisper White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Color in your flowers and leaves with you Stampin Blends  as follows
  • Large flowers:Rich Razzleberry Stampin Blends
  • Circle cluster flowers: Bermuda Bay Stampin Blends
  • Leaves: Mossy Meadow Stampin Blends
  • After you color in your image, die cut the image out using the Budding Blooms Dies
  • Stamp your sentiment on the  Whisper White  Nested Stitched Shaped Die

Putting the card together:

  • Wrap a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine around your Whisper White embossed panel
  • Adhere this to the front of the card

Finishing touches:
