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!

Amazing Life

Today is one of those days that you can be happy and sad.  It is the last day of the current Annual Catalog.  Some items are still available in the Retiring List, and have even been discounted.  Tomorrow is the NEW Annual Catalog.  It has awesome new products and carry overs of others.  Personally, I cannot wait to start exploring the NEW stuff!!

Today I am saying a fond farewell to one of the stamp sets I really love.  It is Amazing Life.  I like the sentiments and the little “accessory” stamps.  The one I am sharing is a super easy card, my favorite type of card.

 

 

See how easy this card is?  It is the perfect card layout for large sentiments or designs that you want to be the focal point.  And it doesn’t hurt that the designer series paper is gorgeous!

I chose all the colors from the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack.  The base layer is Soft Sea Foam.  The frame for the DSP is Shaded Spruce.  I decided to go with a third color to frame the sentient layer instead of sticking with the Shaded Spruce.  So I added Pacific Point for that layer.  The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce as well.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I really appreciate it.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

The Anchor

I hope you all have received the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  I think it is awesome!!  I was thrilled with the carryover stamps and the new ones are wonderful.  If you do not have a catalog, and do not have a demonstrator, please let me know.  I would love to get one of these new catalogs to you.

Today I am sharing another of the new stamp sets.  It is the Sailing Home suite of products.  You do not need to be a sailing fan to love this set.  I have seen some gorgeous samples with it.  My card today is very simple layout.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sailing Home, Come Sail Away, Jackie Beers

I used the Sailing Home Bundle and the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  I love this sentiment.  It would work for many occasions, or just a Thinking of You!  The stitched look around the sentiment shape was a surprise to me. LOL!  I guess I had not looked very closely at the photos in the catalog.

The rope and anchor are part of the dies.  I love the embossing on the rope.  The anchor has the required loop at the top so you could tie rope through it.  I simply pushed the end of the knot through the hole to give that appearance.  Easy Peasy!!

The CLEARANCE RACK is getting an update today with some Price Reductions included.  Be sure to check it out.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I appreciate you visiting to see my projects.  I will NOT have a project for tomorrow, but will be back on Monday. I hope you have a great weekend.

You’re The Best

I am mixing old products with some new pieces in today’s card.  I love doing that.  It is sort of a “one last spin” with some of the retiring products.

 

I wish I could say that I did something to create that gorgeous lace layer!!  But I cannot.  It is a FABULOUS set of cards and envelopes that are all cut for you.  They are just waiting for you to choose the color of card stock or designer series paper to place behind the lace look.  It also comes in a gorgeous metal tin.  It is named the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards In A Tin.  The envelope is shown here.  I should have shown the back flap of the envelope.  It is a pretty scalloped flap.

I chose Coastal Cabana for the color to show through the lace.  I used a rolled up glue dot in each corner to adhere it to the laser cut front.  The Flirty Flamingo Doily is part of a pack of 4 colors of doilies.  Perfectly named Colored Doilies!!  They are retiring at the end of the month.  I thought it worked wonderfully here though.

I also used the retiring 1 1/4″ Circle Punch to punch out the sentiment from Very Vanilla card stock.  I failed to mention that the cards and envelopes are Very Vanilla.  Sorry about that.

To adhere the doily, I placed a glue dot in the center of the lace layer, then placed the doily over top.  The sentiment is layered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise it.  The dimensional also help in adhering the doily.  I topped it off with three Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, another retiring product.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it.  Please come back tomorrow for another new sneak peek of products.

Loyal & True

This week is National Police Week.  The Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC is the center of the ceremonies that will be held.  Sadly there will be way too many names added to the memorial wall again this year.

Today’s card is a simple card to honor all Law Enforcement Officers.

 

 

I am sad to see this Loyal & True stamp set and the military stamp set retire this catalog.  It will stay with me however.

For today’s card I kept it very simple and clean.  The base is Night of Navy card stock and the Blue Line is Blueberry Bushel.  Other than the main piece, I just added the Loyal & True along with the My Hero.  The only thing raised is the center blue heart.  I fussy cut it and raised it with a dimensional.  I used the Crushed Curry and Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Markers to color the badge.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great beginning to your week and will return tomorrow.

Waterfront Wishing You Well

Today’s card is one I made for a very special person.  A friend’s son is in the military and was injured pretty severely.  He is back in the U.S. and has already undergone several surgeries, with more to come. There is not much I can do for him or the family.  But sending a card is right up my alley.  Even if I am a bit late in doing so.  Please put this young man in your prayers if you would.

So here is the card.

Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers, Waterfront, Wishing You Well, More Than Words

Waterfront, 146386

 

I love this font on the Wishing You Well.  It is from the Wishing You Well stamp set.  Although I should have left a white space for it.  The Shaded Spruce is sort of covering it.  Also, I failed to mention the main set I used is the Waterfront stamp set.

Here is the inside piece.

 

 

This gorgeous sentiment is from the More Than Words stamp set.  It is on the retiring list, but I think it will be hanging around my house a bit longer!
