Stampin’ Up Simply Citrus Alternatives

Hello Everyone ~ I am back again with some more Stampin’ Up Simply Citrus Alternatives.

This kit is so much fun to play with.  I love all the pieces and how you can use them to create other cards.  I used the bright colors in this kit to make 4 alternative ideas.  I love the sentiments in the stamp set as they are appropriate for a variety of occasions.

The original Just Jade card in the kit is a simple card with a printed panel.  Here is what it looks like.














So I decided to take and cut the card apart and use the front panel to make this card.  I also took the printed panel and folded it in half.  I added a folded strip at the top and made a shaped note card.  I added it to the card front and used a circle with a sentiment to help hold the panel closed.  This was layered onto a White and the Just Jade card background then added to a White card base.  Here is the first alternative I came up with.


















For the second alternative card I took the printed panel and cut it in half.  Using a White panel, I added half of the printed panel and added it towards the top of the panel.  To hide the cut edge, I added a strip of Just Jade and then a small strip of the polka dot that was left when I cut the panel down.  I mirrored the same top strip at the bottom but I did switch the order.  To finish the card I added the sentiment.  Here is the second alternative idea.

















This alternative uses the other half of the panel from the above card.  I also cut down another card front and used the back of the card in the kit for the solid layer.  I added some of my Just Jade cotton ribbon.  This is alternative number 3.














Here is the last alternative idea.  This one uses the last few strips I had left.  I only had the 2 small strips at the bottom left so I added them and then used the flowers to stamp the background.  Added some of the Just Jade cotton ribbon and attached it to a White card base.  Added the punched sentiment and added some flowers and rhinestones.

















Have you ever taken a kit and made the original card and then a bunch of alternatives?  I hope I have inspired you with my ideas.  Thanks for visiting and have a Marvelous Monday!
