Alternate Monday Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic

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! 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.

Header for blog hop

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

Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a color challenge for you!  It was a “challenge” for me because the last two posts I shared using the perfect paper and stamp set that would match with our color challenge.   I thought, “I cant use the same stamp set as last week so, I put my thinking cap on and used the Country Lane paper but changed the stamp set to Winter Woods.  Have fun with our hop and take a peek at the other cards our team has created today.
