Good Morning Magnolia – At Last!

I’ve been patiently waiting for Stampin’ Up!’s new catalog to go live before I posted cards using new things. But, I just couldn’t wait any longer to show this beautiful new suite featuring the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. There is so much to love about it!

Design Notes for Good Morning Magnolia Card:

I love adding ribbon to my cards and projects. The Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon is so yummy! For this card, I used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. A while back, I made a video showing how to create a similar car using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. The technique is the same using the new, Delightful Tag Topper Punch. Here’s a look at the video.

 

Easy, right?

I colored the flower with Watercolor Pencils and used a Blender Pen to smooth it all out. Here’s the inside of the card. You can see the flower a bit better here.

Beauty Abounds with Modern Grid

Do you recall that a few weeks ago I showed you a card I made using a technique called Modern Grid? (See it here.)  It’s pretty cool. I’ve been working on other cards using this same technique and want to show you one of those cards today. I also have a video tutorial for you. The stamp set, Beauty Abounds is from the Occasions catalog and a perfect set for this technique.

Design Notes for Beauty Abounds Card:

Well, for some reason, known by no one, I used a different stamp set in the video. However, the technique I used on today’s card is the same as I demonstrate in the video. For today’s card, I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the butterflies.

A Little Shimmer Paint

I seem to be stuck on copper these days. But why not? It’s all so beautiful. Today’s card, which is part of Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Hop, features lots of copper elements. My favorite is the Copper Shimmer Paint.

Design Notes for Shimmer Paint Card:

Yes, it’s true, another Diagonal Tri-fold card. I do love this fold. After making the base, I cut a piece of Copper Foil, 4″ x 5 1/4″, then cut it on the diagonal. The next piece, Merry Merlot, was cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″. Then I embossed it with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder. The next step was to use the Copper Shimmer Paint with a Sponge Dauber and lightly highlight the design. Finally, I cut the piece on the diagonal and added it to the card front.

For this Tri-Fold, I decided to use a belly band to keep it closed. I made it with some Copper Foil and Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon. I added the bow after I wrapped it around the card. The sentiment is from the Friendly Expressions stamp set. The inside is pretty simple, just a sentiment.

Scallop Tag Topper Card for Fun Fold Friday

It’s Friday! I’ll confess, I used to be more excited about Friday when I was working. But, that’s a story for another time! Now Friday means “Fun Fold” and today will not disappoint. I’ve gone to an oldie that I think you will like, the Scallop Tag Topper Card with a Halloween twist.

I think I m beginning to embrace purple as a Halloween color. Took me long enough. And is that spider just the cutest!

 

Design Notes for Scallop Tag Topper  Card:

This card is so much easier than it looks! Creating the little tab closure is easy. A few years back, I made a video to show how it is done. The video has a few little rough spots – it was one of my first videos – but the directions are clear.

I also decorated the inside with some extra of the adorable Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper.

And, I couldn’t help myself, I decorated the envelop as well!

Double Time Stamping With Tropical Chic

Well, it’s time for a video! Yes, I used the double time stamping technique in my class this month and everyone seem pretty pleased with it. So I decided perhaps a video for the world was in order! The technique is really an adaptation of a bit more elaborate technique called Triple Time Stamping. Here’s what we are made this month.
