Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Thank You Card

Good Morning! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I have a Floral Thank You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Photopolymer stamp set. I was inspired by the colors and theme in the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #322.

I just love these colors – they are so elegant and kind of old fashioned! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

So here’s my card. I started by running a panel of Rococo Rose cardstock through the Tin Tile embossing folder and adhering it to a Blackberry Bliss mat. I took a piece of Raspberry Ripple grosgrain ripple ribbon from my stash and wrapped it around the bottom, securing it in the back. I embossed the Thanks sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set using silver embossing powder on a strip of the Petal Pink vellum from the Perennial Essence vellum cardstock and adhered it over the ribbon.

I then worked on the flower bouquet. I stamped two of the solid flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence stamp set in Blackberry Bliss and one in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White cardstock. I stamped one of the small solid flowers in Flirty Flamingo and one in Blackberry Bliss (for the inside of the card) on Whisper White cardstock. I then fussy cut all the flowers. I stamped four sets of the the leaves in Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched them out with the leaf punch (much easier than fussy cutting!).

I stamped centers for the flowers in Versamark ink on Whisper White and embossed them in Silver. I fussy cut them and adhered them to the flowers using liquid glue. I then arranged the leaves and Flirty Flamingo flowers on the card front panel and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the two large Blackberry Bliss flowers together to make a larger flower and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three frosted epoxy drops and popped the panel on a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping another leaf branch in Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Whisper White and adhered the last Blackberry Bliss flower over it. I then added Rococo Rose and Blackberry Bliss mats and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

I hope you liked my card for today. Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! Years ago when I was first married, we lived in northwest Florida and we had a magnificent Magnolia Grandiflora tree in the back yard of our little house. Ever since, I have loved these flowers and was thrilled when I saw that Stampin’ Up! has a new bundle showcasing this beautiful force of nature. The Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set is part of the Magnolia Lane suite which features lots of coordinating products including DSP, an embossing folder, memories and more card pack, ribbon and cork embellishments. The Good Morning Magnolia bundle has the Cling Stamps and coordinating dies including dies to make 3-D flowers.

So on to today’s card…

I started by stamping the large magnolia flower on Whisper White cardstock using Early Espresso Ink. I used my Stamparatus to stamp it, because I don’t have the large stamping block and it worked wonderfully! I then die cut it using the coordinating die and colored it using the light Petal Pink, light and dark Old Olive and dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I used the Pineapple Punch Stampin Write Marker to color the stamen.

I layered a piece of the Magnolia Lane DSP with the dainty flower buds on a Mossy Meadow mat and attached it to a Petal Pink card base with dimensionals. On a scrap of Mossy Meadow, I stamped the Thinking of You stamp in Versamark ink after dusting it with the embossing buddy. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set. I then cut it out with the Stitched Nested Labels die and trimmed the left side and attached it to the card with glue dots. I went to attach the flower to the card with dimensionals and determined that it was a little floppy, so I die cut another large flower in Whisper White cardstock and glued them together with multipurpose liquid glue before attaching them with dimensionals. The double layer of Whisper White made it much stiffer and better for use with dimensionals.

I finished off the card by tying piece of the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and gluing it to the stem of the flower.

The inside of the card is decorated with a strip of the same DSP as the card front background and a Mossy Meadow mat. I also took the magnolia bud stamp and stamped it in early espresso after stamping it off 4 times. Since I had to stamp it off so much to get it light enough, I decided to use the 4th stamp to accent the envelop. So It was stamp it off 3 times on scrap paper, stamp the envelope and stamp the inside of the card! That Early Espresso goes a long way!

The Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set has so many wonderful images and greetings and and the suite has so many coordinating products, so I’ll be bringing this back for more designs. And I can’t wait to make a 3-D flower!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
