I recently organized a swap with my team members using products from the new Annual Catalogue. I chose the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and let the colours from it help me decide my colour palette for this card. It’s so easy to coordinate colours using the DSP as a starting point.
I can tell you, Magenta Madness and Poppy Parade is not a colour combination I would have usally put together but it looks so beautiful on this DSP that I chose this for my card. So, then began my fussy cutting which I rather like to do. I cut flowers apart from the DSP, layering them to add dimension.
I went for a crisp, white background, embossing the Whisper White panel with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder. Coordinating with my colour scheme, I wanted a Poppy Parade label in the centre but I really wanted a softer background. First I heat embossed the leaves from the Lovely You stamp set and then sponged Poppy Parade over it to achieve the look I wanted.
A linen bow was added along with a sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. Then I added a Champagne Rhinestone for just a touch of extra elegance.
All the products I have used for this card are listed at the bottom of this post and it’s a fun and quick card to make.
I currently have a BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) sale running on my Stamping Flair Online Events Group. All items I have for sale are listed in albums. For every dollar you spend on retired products you get to spend the equivalent dollar value on anything in the new catalogue. So for instance, if you select a bundle for $50 from my retired product, you will have $50 to spend on new product. Essentially, you will be receiving my retired goods for FREE. Join my Facebook Group to browse the products on offer.
You will also receive Bonus Days vouchers for every order over $90.

Make this card at home
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.
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.
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.
