Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More

Good Morning! I hope you enjoyed the Blog Hop yesterday! Didn’t the cards put you in a Summer Vacation frame of mind? Well today I have something a little different to show you. I have a set of four cards that are made with the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack and the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes.

The Memories and More card packs by Stampin’ Up! have 6″ x 4″ and 3″ x 4″ double sided cards that all coordinate and special laser cut stickers and other goodies. This has the following advantages:

  • It makes card making easy and quick for the beginner paper crafter or busy person with limited crafting time.
  • The card are perfectly sized and designed for Memory Keeping Journal pocket pages and Scrapbooking.

The Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More card pack has cards that coordinate with the Good Morning Magnolia stamps and dies and the Magnolia Lane DSP. It also coordinates with the Verdant Garden stamp set and Garden Lane DSP. And it coordinates with most of the greens in the Stampin’ Up! color world.

For today’s cards, I paired it up with the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes which has the casual elegance of craft paper with white foil accents and envelope liners! Plus they are larger so that they fit a 6″ x 4″ card perfectly. Let me show you.

These pictures show the first card. The top picture shows the two cards from the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Memories and More card pack that I used to create the card. I used a Pear Pizzazz scrap for a mat and dressed it up with sequins and an Old Olive linen thread (now retired) bow. On the inside, I cut a piece of Whisper White and decorated it with some stickers from the pack and used a mat in Mint Macaron. Easy Peasy!

For the second card, I only used a 3″ x 4″ card from the memories and more card pack for the card front, so you can see the pretty white foil on the front of the card! There’s room to put a thin mat behind it, so I used Old Olive and dressed it up with some sequins and bow. For the inside, I just used one of the 4″ x 6″ cards from the memories and more card pack and added another flower sticker. Again – Easy Peasy!

I chose to mix it up a bit with this card because I wanted to use the Happy Birthday sentiment with it. So I used one of the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the sentiment from the card and adhered it with dimensionals to cover the existing sentiment. And I added a white mat to provide contrast for the smaller card. On the inside I added a strip of Vellum to the bottom and added another sticker. And of course, I added a Basic Black mat. A little more complicated, but it still went together fast.

The last one was the most complicated because I stamped, colored and die cut the magnolia bud from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and laid it on a mint macaron die cut stitched circle. When I was looking for a sentiment to stamp, I decided to just use the thank you from the card, so I cut it out and covered the opening with a flag sticker behind the die cut circle. I then put a tail on the sentiment and re-attached in a different place. I added a Mossy Meadow mat, sequins and a bow and used dimensionals to attach the little card. On the inside, I just used another Mossy Meadow mat and added some stickers.

I hope that I’ve given you some fresh ideas on how to quickly create pretty cards. The Stampin’ Up Magnolia Lane Memories and More card pack is very versatile – you can keep it simple or make it elaborate. Thanks for Visiting!

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!
