Beautiful Magnolia Image

You can create a beautiful magnolia image on a card super fast.  I received a similar card last month from a member of my Demonstrator team. My jaw dropped as it was SO simple yet so elegant and perfect just as it was. I had to make some for myself as birthday thank you notes and I sent them out.

I chose a light color so I could write on the inside. Any light color works (the card I received from my downline was Balmy Blue) OR choose a darker color and use a Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock piece to write on and adhere inside (4″ x 5-1/4″).  Wouldn’t the Seasonal Wreath 3D embossing folder look great as a holiday note card or thank you? (pg. 199 of our annual catalog or see it HERE).  If you make groups of these, they are wonderful gifts if you insert them into our Acetate Card Boxes (noted below).

Supplies:
Stamp set: Good Morning Magnolia (149298)
Ink: Soft Sea Form Classic Stampin’ Pad (147102)
Paper: Soft Sea Foam Cardstock (149688)

Measurements:
Soft Sea Foam card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″ then fold crease with Bone Folder

Instructions:

  1. Run Soft Sea Foam cardstock and Magnolia 3D embossing folder (using the 3D Embossing Folder Plate) through your die-cutting machine.
  2. Fold card.
  3. Using Soft Sea Foam ink, stamp corner of the front of Whisper White Medium Envelope.
  4. For gift giving: make sets and insert into Acetate Card Boxes (each holds up to 5 sets of cards with envelopes). See them HERE. Note that the wording is incorrect on that one item; the box holds USA standard A2 cards and envelopes. It measures 4-7/16″ x 5-13/16″ x 5/8″.

Cold Winter Night

This card is perfect for a cold winter night in December.  Usually, it means the holidays are approaching.  This is a perfect card to bring a snowy night to life.  I love the colors that represent the cold and the Winter.  You can add some glitter for a more dominant effect.

Whisper White: two pieces 4 ¾” X 3 ½” plus scrap at least 2″ x 2″
Designer Series Paper: Feels like Frost 5 ¼” X 4”

Instructions:
Using 1 ½” Circle Punch, cut circle from Whisper White
Hold circle onto Whisper White cardstock where you want your moon and lightly sponge around outside of circle getting gradually getting darker as you move out away from circle. You may hold circle in place by hand or by using Washi Tape. Other tape may cause it to tear when removed.
After outline of moon with light ink is completed, start sponging with Night of Navy ink, working out to all the edges, blending as best as you can. You may need to “sponge off” some to prevent sky getting too dark. When complete, you can remove the circle.
Use stamp with dots and with Versamark ink, stamp randomly on the card to make it look like snow. Cover the dots using the Shimmer White Embossing Powder.
With Heat Tool, emboss the snowflakes taking care to not burn your paper.
Cut out the tag and branch using the dies from Beautiful Boughs.
Use the Snowfall Puff Paint to randomly place on branches then heat emboss.
Stamp the sentiment onto the tag using Versamark and White Embossing Powder (words are more clear and crisp with plain white vs shimmery white embossing powder). Heat to emboss the words.
Adhere Designer Series Paper to card base.
Adhere branch to sponged Whisper White card front then wrap ribbon around it at the bottom, tie it, then add sentiment piece on top of it.
Adhere branch/moon piece to Designer Series Paper.
Lightly spritz Champagne Glimmer Paint mixture over front of card (optional but very pretty)
Add Whisper White on inside of card so it can be written onto.
Place a rhinestone on each side of the tag sentiment where the holes are.

Another Snowman Card

I have another Snowman card to share.  The bright colors always make me smile.  This is an alternative project idea to the snowman card previously shared with the same stamp set.

Supplies:
Stamp Set – Snowman Season (150458); Bundle with Snowman Punch (152337)
Card Stock – Thick Whisper White (140272); Whisper White (100730); Cherry Cobbler (119685)
Stamp Pads – Memento Tuxedo Black (132708)
Misc. – Stampin’ Blends Pool Party Combo (144605); Stampin’ Blends Light Smoky Slate (145054); Stampin’ Blends Light Pumpkin Pie (144578); Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper (150393); Diagonal Stripe Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler (150439); Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder (150645); Starburst Punch (143717); 2” Circle Punch (133782); Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430); Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (144108); Snail Adhesive (104332); Mini Glue Dots (103683); Paper Snips (103579); Embossing/Die Cutting Machine

Measurements:

Thick Whisper White Cardstock: 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”
Whisper White Cardstock: 4” x 2 ½” for sentiment and 2” circle punch
Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: 5 ¼” x 4”
Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper: 2” x 4” for banner and a scrap piece approx. 2 ½” for starburst punch

Instructions:
  • Emboss the Cherry Cobbler layer with the Winter Knit embossing folder and add it to the front of the thick Whisper White Card with snail adhesive.
  • Cut a flag banner at the bottom of the 2” x 4” piece of Designer Paper with your paper snips and add it to the front of your card with snail adhesive.
  • Stamp the sentiment and snowman image on Whisper White cardstock using Memento Black Ink. Punch the snowman out with the 2” circle punch and cut the sentiment out with your paper snips. Color the snowman with Stampin’ Blends. I used the light Pumpkin Pie for his nose, light Pool Party for the snowman, and Smoky Slate for the snow and outline of the snowman. Then I used the light Pool Party to make dots of snow on the sentiment.
  • Punch some Designer Paper using the Starburst Punch. The print I used is the backside of the snowman one shown on the banner.
  • Make a faux bow with the Cherry Cobbler Ribbon and tack it down on the card front with Mini Glue Dots. (I don’t really tie a bow so that it’s not bulky) Attach the snowman image to your Starburst Punched shape with snail and pop it up over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add the cut sentiment pieces with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the front of the card.

Welcome Winter Soon

What better way to welcome Winter soon than with an adorable snowman card.  He is just gorgeous and so much fun to create.  I know you will love it.

  • The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Whisper White measuring 5/8 x 3 ½.  Stamp in Flirty Flamingo ink.  Notch the ends using the Triple Banner Punch.  Add using Stampin’ Dimensionals and place this just under the snowman so he has a little snow under him. We don’t want him just floating!
  • Add the mittens with a dot of glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Loss With Compassion

Combine Loss With Compassion when you send this sympathy card.  It’s a perfect emotional sentiment in a time of need.  Sometimes all we need is a note or card to let us know we are loved and thought about.  Going through a loss is always hard, having family and friends by our side helps to ease our emotions.  The colors of this card are soothing and it’s so easy on the eyes.  The message is there and they know it has a lot of love behind it.  I love this metallic edge ribbon for projects like this.  It has an elegant, yet soft look to it.
