No Stamping Magnolia Lane Card

This beautiful card has been created using products from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack. You will find this on Page 171 of your Annual Catalogue. This pack includes 50 double sided cards in different sizes, vellum specialty cards and 4 sticker sheets.

Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack

This is a very unusual card for me in that it involved zero stamping. 

No stamping handmade card, Memories & More, Stampin' Up!, DIY

I started by die cutting the bottom border of my card base with that beautiful border die. I ran it through a couple of times to make sure it cut through the front and back of the card. Then I cut the So Saffron striped card to fit my card base and die cut the bottom of that so it layered on top. The ribbon was added with Tear & Tape adhesive and then glued to the base.

Hello you, Magnolia card I die cut one of the Stitched Rectangles and mounted the circles on top using liquid glue. The circles have been punched from another 2 cards that came in this pack. I offset them to give it interest and added the magnolia sticker with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment sticker was inserted under the magnolia and really stands out against the Basic Black die cut. 

Further detail was added to the ribbon by tying a bow and securing with a glue dot. The pennant and leaves are also part of the stickers that come in the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack. 

These card packs are great to use for your scrapbooking pages as well as for card making. Team it with the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for some quick and beautiful card making.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Favourite Designer Series Paper

Hello Friends,

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today. Today I’m taking part in the Stampin’ Dreams Monthly Blog Hop.  It’s my first time participating and I’m really grateful for the opportunity. This month’s theme is Designer Series Paper. 

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop July Designer Series Paper

Stampin’ Up! has given us a beautiful range of paper to create with including 12″x12″ and 6″x6″ papers.  There are papers in all our Classic and In-Colour ranges plus all the beautiful patterned papers we have including specialty papers such as foil and vellum. See the entire range HERE.

Fancy fold cards are a great way to show case Designer Series Paper. I have chosen my favourite, Bird Ballad paper to work with today. With so many designs of birds, feathers, bird cages, flowers and images that are perfect for fussy cutting, this paper can be used in so many ways. 

Create a Fanfare Fold card with Bird Ballad DSP

I have created a fun fold card to show off this pretty paper. This card was adapted from one which Lyssa Griffith Zwolanek had created and is called a Fanfare Fancy Fold. The original didn’t stand upright so I got rid of one layer to enable it to stand up. I then modified it to create this version. I love the simplicity of this fold yet it is fun and interactive with the concertina fold opening up to show the different layers.

Fun Fold card with feathers and birds

I used various sheets of this DSP. The card base displays the paper beautifully. The centre image of the birds has been fussy cut from one of the sheets. 

Pigment Sprinkle leaves with Birds

To create the leaves, spritz a piece of Shimmery White cardstock with water and then sprinkle with the Granny Apple Green Pigment Sprinkles over it. The new pigment sprinkles are a fun product to work with, giving you completely different looks each time.

Leave this to completely dry. Then die cut the leaves using the Magnolia Memory Dies. 

To add some extra dimension and depth to this panel, I stamped, coloured and fussy cut a few extra flowers and added the leaves. Both the flowers and leaves have been curled using a bone folder

Finally, I stamped the sentiment and added a flower which has been fussy cut out of DSP to complete the card.

Create this Simple Magnolia Lane Hello Card

The Magnolia Lane suite is filled with so many good products. My featured product today is the Magnolia 3D embossing folder from this suite which has one large and one small flower on the image. These images are beautiful and form a perfect background to create my simple card.

Magnolia 3d handmade card, Stampin' Up!

I have run the Mossy Meadow cardstock with the embossing folder to create a simple yet striking background. This has been layered on a piece of Garden Lane Designer Series Paper which complements the Magnolia Lane suite of products. 

The leaves have been die cut from the coordinating dies. The sentiment has been stamped in Stazon ink onto a cork tag which comes from the Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments. Each pack comes with 20 pieces of a selection of tags, magnolias and leaves – great to add texture to a card.

Once you stamp the sentiment, leave it for a few minutes to ensure it has dried completely.

 

Stamp on cork with Stazon ink

I threaded some twine through the tag and then added a cork magnolia to complete this corner with the sentiment. This has been adhered with liquid glue on top of the burlap ribbon.

#tgifc219 Always Thinking of You

My card today has been inspired by the colour challenge at TGIF Challenges. The challenge was to use Purple Posy,  Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray which are 3 of the 5 new In-Colours. I chose the Country Home stamp which is one my favourites as it encompasses a warm homely feel with it’s rustic cans, country tile and wild flowers. 

#tgifc219 color challenge, Country Home handmade card with Buffalo Check

I started off by stamping a 14.8cm x 10.5cm piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Buffalo Check stamp in Rococo Rose. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped it over the entire piece. As it is a large stamp, the use of the Stamparatus gave me the ability to re-stamp the image if parts of it didn’t stamp through the first time. 

Tip:

Using a larger piece of cardstock with the Stamparatus gives you space to place your magnets and to get full coverage with your stamped image.

Then I cut this piece of cardstock down to 5.2cm x 13.2cm and punched the end with the Delightful Tag Topper punch. I used the balance piece to decorate my envelope.

The can has been coloured in Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends and the flowers in Rococo Rose and Purple Posy. The leaves have been coloured with Crumb Cake to add a neutral tone to blend in with the colour scheme. 

I have layered the sentiment on a doily cut out of the Botanical Tags dies and sponged with Rococo Rose. Then I added a strip of Whisper White cardstock stamped with one my new favourite texture stamps – Very Versailles. The sentiment is also from this stamp set and I love the font. I stamped this on Crumb Cake cardstock to bring in the leaves from the coloured image. 

Botanical Bliss stamp set border, #tgifc219

The Botanical Bliss stamp set was used with the Stamparatus to create a border for the inside of the card.

For the Love of Felt Project Kit

Hi Friends,

Hope you have had a great weekend. We are into a new month. Can you believe it that July is here? Bonus Days are here during July so for every $90 spent (ex shipping) you will earn a $9 coupon which can be spent in August. 

I’m sure over the past month you have been enjoying looking at the new catalogue and perhaps shopping from it. Today I’m looking at our project kits which are available in both the Annual Catalogue as well as the Beginner Catalogue. Some of these are all-inclusive project kits which means they include everything you need to complete the projects apart from your choice of adhesive. Others are Gather to Create project kits.  For these you will need the accompanying stamp set, ink pads, adhesives and other tools to complete the projects in the kit. The For the Love of Felt Project Kit is one such kit. 

Cardmaking kit in a box, Gift box

This kit drew me with it’s 3D felt flowers and bright and cheery colours as it’s so different to our other kits. The felt flowers are a lovely element which adds so much interest to these projects. With a colour palette of Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Sahara Sand and Shaded Spruce, these cards create a feeling of fun and happiness. 

There are a variety of sentiments in the For the Love of Felt stamp set. This sentiment of ‘you make an ordinary day special’ is sure to brighten someone’s day. The flowers come ready assembled so all you need to do is attach it to your card. 

The leaves and yellow flowers come die cut on a sheet so all that needs to be done is pop them out of the sheet of card. These cards are so quick to make. This makes it easy for you to have a nice stash of cards ready for a variety of occasions in a short time.

This is a very easy stamp set to create with and that bunch of leaves is my favourite. It creates maximum impact with little effort. I love the effect of stamping this around the edges to create the border on this card. 

Get the kit and the coordinating products to start creating these beautiful cards at home. You could also get some friends together and have a craft get together. I could bring the stamp set and ink pads and you could complete all your kits. 

Completed kit gives you 12 cards – 4 each of 3 designs. You can store your cards in the beautiful box the kit comes in. Purchase the kit, stamp set and an adhesive and you will earn yourself a Bonus Days coupon. It’s as easy as that.
