This week I made not 1 but 2 cards for the Thursday Challenge.

One I loved and the other I like a lot but it was not my favorite. I decided to post the one I liked a lot because it had more of the colors that were included in the inspiration pic.

After mulling it over in my head for a couple days, I decided I should really share the card that I loved.

Alternate card for DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #189. Featuring Garden in Bloom stamp set, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Glimmer Paper. For more details click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup


If you saw the card from the Thursday challenge, you may recognize that is the same but different

Same design…different colors!


What do I use to create this beauty? aka Supply List

Stamp Set:  Garden in Bloom

Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Pool Party, Thick Whisper White and Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Sweet Sugarplum and Pool Party

Tools:  Big Shot, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Stampin’ Trimmer, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Fast Fuse Adhesive

It’s All in the Details

  • If you look closely at the word “hope”, you will see that there is the glimmer paper layered on top of Chocolate Chip–I did this to create a little lift and the illusion of a shadow. Adds just a little extra to the card.

I know the alternate card is very subtly different but I wanted to share it with you.
