Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, heat embossing and sponge daubers. I’ve created this as a birthday card, but it could so easily be sympathy, wedding, anniversary, or just a note. It is soft and it is feminine. Let’s look….

Good Morning Magnolia #1

Here are the details:

  • Thick Whisper White card stock 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, another piece 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ for the card front.
  • Rub the smaller cs with your embossing buddy, making certain to cover the entire area.
  • Using Versamark ink, stamp the Good Morning Magnolia stamp on the right hand corner, stamping as much of the magnolia as you desire. Ink a portion of the stamp again and stamp in the upper left corner.
  • Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat emboss. Set aside to cool.
  • On a scrap, of vellum, rub with your embossing buddy and with Versamark ink stamp the flower bud. Sprinkle with white embossing powder then heat emboss until all the powder has melted. Set aside to cool. Once cool, use the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut out the flower bud.
  • On another scrap of vellum approximately 1/2″ x 3″, rub with the embossing buddy, ink your sentiment and stamp. Sprinkle with the white embossing powder and heat emboss until all powder has melted. Set aside to cool.
  • Using Blushing Bride and sponge daubers, lightly rub the color exactly where you want it. I made it darker in the center and lighter toward the outside. For the leaves, do exactly the same with Old Olive ink. Do the same on the vellum flower bud but color on the backside of the vellum.
  • Attach the flower bud with a mini dimensional at the base of the bud.
  • Attach the vellum sentiment in the same spot using a glue dot. I used a second glue dot, placing it just under the word happy, so it wouldn’t show through.
  • Now you are ready to adhere this directly to your card base, using liquid glue or snail.

For the inside… I’ve kept this very simple.

Timeless Tulips sentiment – inside
  • Choose your sentiment… this is from the Timeless Tulip stamp set (available during Sale-a-bration), and using Stazon Jet Black ink..

Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and the Ornate Garden Suite

Today’s card is made using the ultra cute Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Notecards and decorated using Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and. the Ornate Borders dies. These notecards come in a package of 20 with scalloped envelopes and in colors: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. This card is made using the Old Olive. Here it is…

The card front:

  • Cut a piece of the Ornate Garden SDSP 2 3/4″ x 5″. Adhere using liquid glue.
  • Using the Ornate Borders Dies, cut a piece 1/2″ x 5″ from Gold Foil. Adhere using liquid glue.

The inside:

  • Cut a strip of the Ornate Garden SDSP 1/2″ x 5″ and adhere to the bottom. This allows this beautiful paper paper to show because of the scalloped edge of the notecard.
  • Using the Ornate Layers dies, cut a section from Old Olive cs. Adhere to the inside using liquid glue
  • Using a different die from the Ornate Layers Dies, cut a section from Gold Foil. Rub with your embossing buddy to remove any static. Using Versamark ink, stamp the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set, sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat set. Adhere this to the Old Olive piece.
  • Since this has used most of the card, prepare a Whisper White piece to slip inside. Here’s what I did with mine – using the Ornate Style stamp set and Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I cut this piece 3″ x 4″.

Voila – card is complete, ready to send an appreciative thank you!

Bloom and Grow with coordinating Budding Blooms dies

Oh my goodness… I think I have shared with you how much I enjoy coloring. If not, well now you know 😏 The weather here was gray, overcast and rainy – a bit on the dreary side to say the least. Hubby was home and wanted a fire in the fireplace so I brought my crafty stuff to that cozy spot and had a “jolly good” time.

The night before I had taught a class and demonstrated coloring with blends. I had stamped and cut some extra pieces so I could demo a different color than what we were making in class. I only did one the night of the class and this set was calling me to do more. With this delightful, cozy setting of the fireplace ablaze, our Springer Spaniel lying close to the fire and my hubby reading, I couldn’t resist staying close by.

Here are the cards… card 1 is the one created in class. The others are what I completed yesterday afternoon. n

Blends used varied with each card… the first is Poppy Parade and coordinating blends with Petal Pink both light and dark blends for the back ground; and Call Me Clover light and dark for the leaves, Poppy Parade dark for the berries. The next card shows Granny Apple Green light & dark blends for the back ground, Petal Pink light & dark for the flowers, Mint Macaron light & dark blends for the leaves, and light Flirty Flamingo for the berries. The next card was kept very simple – no card stock background and I love it! Highland Heather light & dark blends for the flowers, Granny Apple Green light & dark blends for the leaves, dark Flirty Flamingo for the berries and Soft Seafoam light and dark blends for the back ground. Card four: light Poppy Parade + dark Petal Pink for the flowers, Granny Apple Green light & dark blends for the leaves, soft Seafoam light and dark blends for the background and oh yes, dark Poppy Parade for the berries. Last but not least: the yellow card is affixed to Daffodil Delight card stock but is colored using both light and dark Mango Melody blends, Old Olive light and dark for the leaves and dark Flirty Flamingo for the berries, Mint Macaron light and dark blends for the back ground. Whew – a whole lot of fun!

Remember when using the blends, it’s better to start with the darker shade first and only do a small area then sweep in with the lighter blend to do what – blend together. 😁 The reason for doing small areas is to keep the blend moist so it easily “moves” for the blending process.

I hope you enjoyed todays post. Would you share with me which card you like the most… I’m leaning toward the Highland Heather but I also really like the yellow card. I also liked putting the card stock on an angle as opposed to straight on. Do you have thoughts on that?
