The Nature’s Beauty stamp set on Page 63 of the Holiday catalogue is cute, cross-seasonal and covers all type of occasions. On top of all that, for every stamp set purchased, Stampin’ Up! will donate $4.95 to a Mental Health organization. This is a fantastic way in which together, we can make a difference.
I’m pairing this cute bunny with the beautiful Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper which is part of the Buy 3 get 1 free offer on DSP. This promotion runs until 30th September.
Various sheets of the DSP have been used to create the different layers on this card. The flower is also part of the DSP and there is a Die in the set which cuts that out to make life easy for us.
I stamped the bunny in Early Espresso onto Shimmery White cardstock and coloured the image with Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Flirty Flamingo Water Colour pencils and used a Blender Pen to smooth the colour out. I also added a bit of Bermuda Bay to the sky by taking my Blender Pen direct to the pencil and brushing the colour on lightly.

The Magnolia Lane Suite is such a pretty suite which has so many coordinating products to make your crafting experience easy. It comprises of a stamp set with several sentiments and images including the huge magnolia. There are dies to cut out these images and also some that cut out images from the coordinating Designer Series Paper. Ribbon, twine, Stampin’ Blends also make up this suite.
My card uses the Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and the Memories & More Card Park which simplifies cardmaking even more. The cards and envelopes have a silver detailing on them and the envelope liners are printed with Mossy Meadow leaves.
I have chosen a Flirty Flamingo card base and coloured my flower with Flirty Flamingo and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I wanted to slightly veer from the colour palette of the suite which is Basic Black, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink, So Saffron and Whisper White. The printed vellum comes in the Memories & More Card Pack. Mounting the vellum onto the Flirty Flamingo changes it’s look.
I hadn’t realized how large that flower was until I got the bundle in my hands. It’s a large flower and so pretty. The best part is – there is a die to cut it out.
Did you Know?
All stamps are shown at actual size in Stampin’ Up! catalogues (unless otherwise stated). This makes it very easy to order the sentiments and images you want as you know exactly what you are going to get.
I added a smaller Memories & More card with a tiny leaf pattern on it and mounted the flower on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it depth.
To make the sentiment stand out, I heat embossed the ‘Congratulations’ in White Embossing powder on Early Espresso cardstock. This created a nice contrast against the busy background.
A new feature in the Annual Catalogue this year is the addition of a simplified one item number ordering system. So when you want to order the entire Magnolia Lane suite, you just need to enter item no. 152178 and it will order all 9 products for you. How easy is that?
This month is Bonus Days so for every $90 you spend you get a $9 voucher to spend in August. Great time to stock up on essentials as well as some of your wish list items.

The Follow Your Art suite in the Annual Catalogue has got every type of craft and crafter covered. Sewing, painting, colouring, drawing, stamping, hot glue gun lover, stationery collecter – there’s something for everyone.
The Designer Series Paper has images of tools and products used in these crafts on one side and the other side has fun and creative designs. Coordinating colours are Basic Gray, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point, Whisper White.
Both the cards are in the Pacific Point and Calypso Coral colour combination and feature the spools of ribbon. With a die that cuts out these ribbons it’s easy to create a variety of coloured ribbons for your cards. I love the cute heart that is formed by the ribbon.
This first card follows a very simple layout and is a great for the Beginner cardmaker as it’s a simple sketch to follow. I’ve created 2 halves in my card with the bottom half a little bit larger than the top. I’ve added the beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the images of the ribbon on the top half and then added the embossed Crushed Curry panel at the bottom.
A strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock across the centre ties the 2 halves together. I also stamped my sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink on it.
To colour in the ribbons I used some Stampin’ Write Markers. There are colours to match every ink Stampin’ Up! have and this makes coordination so easy.
Use scrap cardstock strips to create a border between layers or to stamp sentiments on.
For my next card I used the Button Button embossing folder on the Pacific Point cardstock. You can see the lovely detail of this embossing folder and it adds great texture to these cards.
You probably know that I love layering cardstock and paper. This creates depth and makes layers pop such as the paintbrush paper on this card. The paper clip is from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit. This embellishment kit contains lovely felt elements in Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry, paper clips, linen thread, silver charms – everything to coordinate with your Follow Your Art projects.
In the next edition of my newsletter, due out tomorrow, I’m featuring another card with this lovely suite.Here’s a sneak peek. To see the full details, sign up for my newsletter. I feature exclusive projects, tips and news for you crafty folk.
