Magnolia Madness!

VGZF8107

I had so much fun creating this card last weekend at our craft retreat weekend!  We timed our retreat perfectly so we can play with our pre-order products!  The Magnolia Lane Suite became my favorite to create with!  You will have to have this suite in your stash! (especially if you are from Texas).

To create this 3-D card, I used the Magnolia Memory dies to create the flowers and leaves.  I used a Sponge Dauber and some Blushing Bride to color from the center to the outer section of the petals. I used a couple Glue Dots on the backs to layer them together.  Next, I cut out the pistils with Blushing Bride and layered them on top of the Whisper White petals.  To finish off the flowers, I added some Wink of Stella and a pearl.

They looked more like orchids, so I used the branch from the Seasonal Layers dies. The background was using one of my favorite go-to embossing folders, Subtle!!  It’s a must have! The sentiment was cut out using the new Stitched Nested Labels!  (I went a little crazy with this card!!)

Delicate Faux Linen

final-10

This was one of the techniques that came to mind when I first saw the Colorful Seasons bundle!  Faux Linen was one of the very first cards I made over 9 years ago!  I am surprised that it’s taken me this long to do that technique again!  We made this card for our stamp club this month!  Super simple!!

  1. Use a neutral or light color card stock for your base.  I used Soft Sky in this photo.
  2. Take a piece of tissue that you use for gift wrapping.  Stamp desired images on it. Then wad it up one to two times and flatten it out. I chose not to stamp on the tissue here.
  3. Use your Tombo Multi Purpose glue and apply to the whole card base using a sponge piece.  (I store mine in a baggie to keep it moist).
  4. Gently use your fingers to lay your tissue down and smooth out most of the wrinkles.  You want some.  (Elmer’s glue works too, but it tears the tissue easily).
  5. Let dry and attach to your card!

I was able to stamp the sentiment directly on it when it was dry.  I also used the Fine Tip Glue pen to attach the branch.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere the flowers together.  There is a whole piece and a detailed piece to make 3 different flowers.  cherry blossom

I then used a blender pen with Berry Burst to color the centers.  A pearl added the finishing touch!

Hope you enjoued this card as much as I did making it!  LOVE cherry blossoms!  You can order this and other items at my website! Remember to get your loyalty rewards too!  Any order of $150 or more is eligible for host benefits!
