Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack

Today’s post is all about the fun Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack with the coordinating Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.. Do you hoard some of your card making products? Let’s say I used to but am getting better at actually making use of most everything. So why do I ask about hoarding? I have had this card pack for quite some time, used one or two then set it aside. I even made a fun “album” of sorts very early on. There were so many new products I think I got a bit overwhelmed. Yesterday I pulled out that card pack and went to ‘town’. I think this would make a lovely gift package as there are birthday, wedding, and congratulations cards made from this set. Enjoy.

These large specialty cards and envelopes are of a lighter weight paper than our regular cardstock, so you will notice I have used additional cardstock behind all the cards. I just felt it needed it and even more importantly, I liked the look. 😏 Here’s  what I used on various cards along with the Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack … Notice nearly every card has aspects on dimensionals. I really like the layered look

Card #1…. Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes and the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack, Early Espresso cardstock, Glitter Enamel Dots, Whisper White and the Woven Heirlooms stamp set

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Today’s card is made with the amazing Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. This stamp set has additional options … first there are the two stamp sets, then matching dies and finally an embossing folder. Today we use just the one stamp set and the embossing folder. The card is elegant and depending on the sentiment used, could be for many purposes. This is a thank you card, for I’m grateful for a lot, and during this time especially it seems appropriate to give thanks. Let take a look…

And here are the details on how to make it:

  • Smokey Slate card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy 4″ x 5 1/4″ (cut 2, one for the inside)
  • Silver Foil 4 1/8″ x5 1/8″, 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White 3 7/9″ x 5 1/8″ (for the inside)

 

  • With your embossing buddy, rub one panel of the Night of Navy,. With Versamark ink, stamp the large flower from Good Morning Magnolia, sprinkle with silver embossing powder and heat set. Make certain all is glistening silver before setting aside to cool.

Let’s create the inside at this point and come back to the front later.

  • Adhere the second panel of Night of Navy to the inside, using liquid glue.
  • With your Whisper White cs, stamp the sentiment and leaves with Night of Navy ink. Adhere this panel to the inside Night of Navy.

Now back to the front..

  • With the Stitched Rectangles, cut the center of that magnificent magnolia.
  • Adhere the larger section of the magnolia to the larger silver foil using snail.
  • Adhere the smaller piece to the smaller Silver Foil with snail. Add dimensionals to this piece and adhere to the larger magnolia, matching all of the floral design.
  • TIP…Adhering  to foil with liquid glue is slippery and the paper often moves. I strongly encourage using snail or dimensionals when adhering to foil papers.

The envelope…

  • Cut a piece of Night of Navy 2 1/4″ x 6″, spritz with water to soften the paper fibers and run through the Magnolia Lane 3D embossing folder.
  • Adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trim.
  • Stamp the leaf in the lower left corner of the envelope front with Night of Navy ink. (I might have taken my picture a bit early and didn’t capture this, but I did do it!)

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!

Stampin’ UP! Ornate Garden Suite

Eeeek! My order for the Ornate Garden Suite arrived, so yesterday I took some time to play. I only had time to create two items and I’m really excited about them. Take a peek. (OOPS … I’ll share the other items in tomorrows post.)

The card was super simple and oh my goodness, the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder is just wonderful – little tiny flowers all over. That is going to become a favorite I’m sure. And the Ornate Layers dies – eeek! Stunning results!

Details:

  • Run the ….. lightly spritz a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of So Saffron cs  then run it through the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. The spritzing allows the papers’ fibers to bend to create deeper impressions instead of cracking and breaking and not as clear definition. Does that make sense?
  • Using about a 22″ piece of the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo pack (I used the Old Olive ribbon in the package), wrap it around the embossed piece and tie a bow. Make certain it is centered on the paper. Use glue dots to keep in place. Adhere the embossed cs with liquid glue directly to the Whisper White thick 4 1/4″ x 11″ base.
  • Using the Ornate Layers dies cut a piece of Terracotta Tile. Cut a piece of Whisper White cs, stamp the front sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set and adhere with liquid glue to the Terracotta Tile die cut. Adhere two little Gilded Gems from this wonderful suite of products. Put dimensionals on the back  of the die cut and place it centered over the ribbon. The front it complete!

The inside…

  • Cut another piece of So Saffron cs 4″ x 5 1/4″, run it through your diecut machine using another of the Ornate Layers dies. Is that gorgeous or what! This could so easily be a card front, or better yet, used to cut down the embossed piece.  Yes, yes! I must try that. On with the directions… Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Adhere to the inside of the Whisper White thick cs.
  • Those little die cut pieces are from another of the die cuts in this set that I saved, cuz I liked them. 🙂 I’ll share that die another day.

Be sure to decorate your envelope. I stamped the adorable little flower in Tuxedo Black Memento ink then used Stamp’ UP! blends to color it. Just remember, when using the blends on an envelope to slip a piece of scrap paper inside so the blends don’t bleed through the envelope. Ask me how I know that!!! And I adhered a piece from the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the flap. These papers are stunning folks! I can’t wait to share more of them with you.

Thanks for stopping by. Please remember to used my HOST CODE 2TMMA9HX when ordering $50 + in products. This gives you the opportunity to receive a free product of your choice from me – not to exceed $10.

Timeless Tulips

Hello! The birds are singing wildly this morning. Isn’t it amazing how bulbs popping out of the ground can get us all enthused? It happens to me for sure. So today’s card is a hint of Spring – Pool Party is the lead color with just a hint of Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam. Here it is…

  • Card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ – Pool Party
  • Layer 4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party dry embossed with the beautiful Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. Adhere with liquid glue directly to the card base
  • Layer #2: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party. Cut 3″ x 4″  Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and adhere with liquid glue to the smaller Pool Party. Put dimesnionals on the back and adhere to the card base by centering it on the card.
  • Layer #3: Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and second from largest scalloped edge, cut a piece of Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, the stamp the smaller tulip in Petal Pink, followed by the stem and leaves in Soft Seafoam.
  • Adhere pearls from Share What You Love OR color pearls using Stampin Blends markers.

Love the simplicity of this primarily monochromatic look. The sentiment chose lends itself to being used as a birthday, sympathy, congratulations or just a note card.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card today. This kind of card lifts my spirits and I hope it does the recipient as well.

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?

Thank You Card for a Man

Today’s card was made with someone special in mind. A gentleman on staff at our church has taken another position elsewhere and is moving. While we have not had a lot of interaction, it’s still an appropriate time to say thank you for serving our congregation. I’ve used a retired embossing folder but there are some others that would work very well with this design setup. Here’s the card:

I used Blackberry Bliss Cardstock, 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″. The next layer is 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ and dry embossed. The tile tief might be a nice embossing folder to use – definitely creating a different texture. I used a 1″ strip of Old Olive and cut it on the diagonal, matching the sideways embossed pattern, adhering it just a bit lower than halfway. On top of that is a strip of textured burlap ribbon, adhered with tear ‘n tape. Another piece of Old Olive cut with the scalloped oval die has been put on dimensionals. Abstract Impressions stamp set was used for the Thank You sentiment, using Blackberry Bliss ink. Dandelion Wishes stamp set was used to create the floating away flowers using Smokey Slate ink.

Here’s the inside:

Again using Smokey Slate ink, I stamped the the dandelion then positioned the sentiment where I wanted it. That is stamped in Old Olive ink.

This is a rather elegant looking card and seems perfect for a man. Hope you like it!

Cute packaging using retired DSP

Hi All – happy August! Today is a fun project using retired Designer Series Paper (or in the Stampin Up! World DSP) Of course, any paper can be used, but this is a fun way to make use of that retired product. I’ve used 6 x 6 cardstock and cut that down to size. Here is a picture of the finished product – five  of them anyway – and so easy to do.

Here are the dimensions:

5″ wide scored at 1 1/8″, 2 1/4″, 3 3/8″ and 4 1/2″

4 3/4″ tall scored at 1″ at bottom. Burnish all score lines.

 

Look at the next picture to see how that was trimmed. Notice also the tear ‘n tape and where it is positioned. The first is the front side, the second is the inside of the package.

 

What’s fun then is to decorate! I used primarily the 1 3/8″ scalloped punch for the larger circle, and went from there, looking in my scrap bin for whatever I could find. On one of them are two sets of leaves from the leaf punch: one. In vellum, the other in Shaded Spruce to coordinate with the DSP. The spruce leaf is scored along each leaf and slightly curled to make it more three dimensional. The butterfly is reinforced on a piece of cardstock – cut from another retired DSP. The little dots are glitter dots – don’t you just love them? They bring the decoration to life. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

After puttting it together, I’ve pinched the top and punched a hole in which to thread the ribbon.

Questions? Feel free to ask! Let me know if I can help you create something fun. If you would like to place an order, please use my HOST CODE: 6YVUK6A9, which is good Aug 6-20, 2019. If you order is OVER $150, do not use the HOST CODE.
