Magnolia Hello

 

The most time consuming part of producing this card was the coloring.  And that is not very much.  I was pleasantly  surprised with how it turned out.

 

 

This card measures 4 1/4 X 4 1/4.  So it will fit in a regular A2 envelope.  I love square cards in that it makes cutting the layers very easy and doesn’t challenge my math skills.

I stamped the Magnolia with Soft Suede ink.  I like the softer look it gives to the flower.  I colored the stem with Crumb Cake and the leaves with the Dark Mossy Meadow.  For the flower, I colored the center and some of the defining lines with the Light So Saffron.  So Saffron is one of the NEW Stampin’ Blends available in the new annual catalog.  Of course I snapped all of the  new ones up right away.

Even though I used So Saffron Card Stock and Stampin’ Blends, I used Crushed Curry Ink for the Hello stamp.  I wanted it to be a bit stronger color to go with the darkness of the Mossy Meadow leaves.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I really appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday.  The complete supply list is at the bottom of the page.

Free As A Bird Pals June Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ June  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings”. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I am sharing birds for my “anything with wings” challenge.  This is actually my second card.  I switched from butterflies to birds.

 

Stampin' Up!, Free As A Bird, Stitched Nested Labels, Subtle Embossing, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

 

This is the negative of the Stitched Nested Labels that I shared on Monday’s card.  I love getting two cards from one piece.  I embossed the So Saffron with the Subtle Embossing Folder prior to cutting with the Stitched Nested Labels.  (They are bundled with the Free As A Bird stamp set!)  The gorgeous DSP is the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

The birds are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  I decided to fussy cut the birds to give more dimension to the card.  The trick is to turn the paper and not your scissors!  I also stamped and cut out the small flower from the stamp set to anchor the banner at the top.

Smile

I have a cute little card to share today.  But first I need to make a correction to a statement I made on yesterday’s notecard.  The Vanilla and Whisper White Note Cards ARE still available in the new catalog.  I mistakenly said they had retired.  YIKES!!!  I am so sorry, and thrilled that I was wrong.

Okay, on to today’s project.  I am sharing the Daisy Lane stamp set.  This is the new set that matches the original daisy punch, with the bonus of fitting the smaller daisy punch.  The small one is new and is a bundle to this stamp set.

 

 

After saying that the Daisy Lane has a new matching punch, I did not use it.  The flower I chose to use does not fit the punches.  It was not hard at all to fussy cut.

I stamped the ferns in Garden Green and the base of the flowers in Old Olive Ink.  The flowers are stamped in Mango Melody and then colored with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  A super easy card to do.

One of my go to ribbons is the Linen Thread.  I wrapped it around the top two layers three times and then used three strands to make the bow.  Quick and easy and I love the texture that it adds.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will return on Monday and hopefully I will have all of my new products put away and organized to work with.  I have been in a mess this week!!  Hopefully you have a wonderfully weekend.

Abstract Scallops

I am sharing another of the Hidden Gems in the new Annual Catalog.  Today I am excited to show you the Scallop Notecards and Envelopes.  They are replacing the White and Vanilla Notecards that retired, although they may still be available on the clearance rack.

These new envelopes are in four colors that you can match with so many of the Stampin’ Up! colors.  Here is my quick little card.

 

 

I chose to try the Balmy Blue scallop card to begin with.  They also are in pink, old olive and terra-cotta tile.  I paired mine with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I stamped the Abstract Impressions flowers on.

I used the new Purple Posy Scallop Linen Ribbon to add some texture to the bottom.  This comes in a few of the new colors and is awesome!

OOPS:  I made a mistake.  I used the Purple Posy Ink on this project.  It is the one that there were issues with the formula.  So I apologize, but it is not orderable at this time.  I am so sorry!!!

My unconventional flowers are stamped in Purple Posy ink and Rococo Rose ink.  The Purple Posy is full strength and the Rose is stamped off once.  The Old Olive for the stems are some full strength and some stamped off as well.

The scallop notecard is 3 1/2 X 5.  I cut my Whisper White layer down to 3 X 4 1/2.  It is raised with dimensional also.

Thanks for stopping in today.  I will have a more regular card to share with you tomorrow….I hope!!  But please do not dismiss these Hidden Gems when looking through the catalog.  And if you do not have a new catalog, or a demonstrator, please let me know.  I would love to get a catalog to you and help you with your stamping needs.

Hello Magnolia

Happy New Catalog Day!!  I made that up of course, but I am so thrilled to be able to order more new products.  And I am sure you are as well.

There have been quite a lot of samples of this Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  Last night I only had a few minutes to get today’s project ready.  So I tried to do a quick and versatile card.  I am very happy with what I came up with.

 

I see this layout as a group of Thank You , and just Hello type cards for a nice gift.  I already have that picture in my mind with a cute decorative box to match.

I went with subtle colors for the magnolia to pair with.  The speckle around the magnolia is, surprisingly, from the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set.  I stamped off in Petal Pink to get the really soft splatter look.  I felt that it needed just a bit of “something else”.  So I added the two falling leaves.  I like the way it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow.  The complete list of products is at the bottom of the post.  There are not very many items used on this one though!

Made With Love

I have another new stamp set (bundle) I am breaking out for you today.  It is the set It Starts With Art!  It is adorable in every way.  This set would work for almost any crafter.  I love flexibility.

 

Stampin' Up!, It Starts With Art, Jackie Beers, Follow Your Art

I fell in love with this sheet of the Designer Series Paper.  It is named Follow Your Art DSP, and has everything in it that is in the stamp set.  This piece just screamed out to me.  I love the bold strokes of color!!

Other than the bright colors I chose, the card is pretty simple.  I stamped the stack of ribbon and colored each one with Stampin’ Blend Markers.  I had to add some Wink of Stella to make them Sparkle! , since that is what the sentiment says.  How cute is that??

Did you notice the little charm hanging from the paperclip?  Those are both from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit.  I normally am not too excited about the embellishment kits.  I tend to stick to ribbon and bling.  These were just too cute to do without.  I ran a piece of White Baker’s Twine through the loop of the charm to tie it to the paperclip.  Just for good measure, I added a glue dot beneath the charm to keep it from moving around.

Thank you for stopping by today and always!  I hope you will return next week for some more ideas.
