To the woman who does it all with grace and wisdom - thank you.

Today's card is the card I made for my customer thank you cards last month. I send a handmade card at the end of each month to everyone who places an order with me. I truly appreciate each and every one of you for choosing me as your demonstrator. 

I have used petal pink as by card base and for the layer embossed with the subtle embossing folder. I have added two different patterned strips of the Magnolia Lane designer series paper for interest.

The sentiment comes from the Strong and Beautiful stamp set and I used the new stitched nested labels dies to crop it out and added dimensionals to the back to add some height.

Stampers Anonymous June Blog Hop

Woo hoo - it's time for another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! I have had to miss the last few so I am happy to be back! 

This month's challenge was to use three of the new 2019-2021 In Colours - Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose. I am loving all of these colours and could not wait to get creating. 

But then I stopped in my tracks for a bit as I was unsure where to start as I have all these new stamp sets. Which one should I choose? It's like picking a favourite child! 

In the end the Magnolia won out. I was keen to try it in non traditional colours. I was also keen to try out my new blends so it was a win-win. 

I stamped the magnolias in memento ink on the whisper white cardstock then added colour with the light and dark blends. I used Rococo Rose for the blooms and light Old Olive and Light Pretty Peacock for the leaves. I framed the flowers with the dark Seaside Spray blends. As always for me it seems, there is a splash of ink of stella for good measure too! 

I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and added dimensionals to lift it. The sentiment comes from Magnolia Blooms stamp set.  

I mounted the whisper white onto a thin Pretty Peacock border then to a base card of Seaside Spray. 

Hope you like it too!

Magnolia Birthday

A very special birthday calls for a very special card. One of my gorgeouse team members and dear friend recently celebrated a significant birthday and this was the card I made for her. I added the numbers after taking the photo in case she didn't want to be outed!! 

So Happy Birthday Jo Ann :)

One of my favourite designers is Mikaela Titheridge @ The Crafty Oink Pen - as soon as I saw this this card I knew I had to recreate it. I just need a little more practice with my colouring!

So I have another card showcasing the huge magnolia, lightly coloured with petal pink and old olive. And just a hint of yellow in the centre. All covered with wink of stella of course! 

The lovely subtle background embossed crumb cake made a nice base and the addition of the ribbon and a small strip of copper finished the look. 

I love the well said words so you can mix and match sentiments.   

I'll be back later to show you part of her gift!

Birthday Magnolias

More Magnolias today - this time another card I was inspired to create from my Pinterest scrolling. Today I am showcasing the Magnolia buds. These are stamped and coloured with blends then cut with the coordinating dies. They are individually coloured and stock onto the whisper white cardstock then I trimmed it to size so parts of some of the buds were cut off.

I thought the black mat really set the flowers off. 

A quick little sentiment and a strip of DSP down the side of the card and it was complete. It is hard to see but I did add wink of stella to the buds and leaves so it looks really shiny in real life! 

Stampin' Up! have released a great video showcasing this bundle - make sure to check out the stunning 3D flowers you can make!

Hello Magnolia! Trifold Card using Good Morning Magnolia

Are you swooning all over the new catalogue? Which is your favourite set/bundle? For me one of my top favourites is Good Morning Magnolia. - I have fallen hard for this stunning Magnolia. It's huge! And just beautiful. I might need an intervention to put it down for a while and play with my other new goodies! 

I was inspired by pinterest for this card - I am seeing so many stunning samples of this magnolia. It's great to see so many different colour combinations, embossing techniques and 3D projects.   

I have had fun using different colours of my blends pens, especially on the leaves to see what I like the best - sometimes bold, sometimes soft and pretty. Needless to say I now have a sizeable stash of them on my desk. I might have to wallpaper my craft room with them - ha!

This card fold isn't new - it's called a Z fold card. It still uses a normal sized card base just cut length ways from your A4 cardstock. you then fold the card base in half like usual then fold the front panel back on itself to create the extra flap. Decorate as you wish and tada - a stunning card is born!
