SU Magnolia Lane Card

Hello and welcome! Today I wanted to share with you a card I created using the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Suite. This is a gorgeous Suite and I loved it as soon as I saw it but, for some reason, I haven’t used it as much as I should have!

The inspiration for this card came from a sketch challenge hosted by CAS(E) This Sketch – click the link to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in! The sketch for this challenge is shown below…

I decided to use the Magnolia Lane Suite as I thought the Designer Series Paper (DSP) would work really well with this sketch. Here is my card…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Petal Pink cardstock. This is followed by a 10.2 x 14.6 cm layer or Basic Black cardstock.

I have then cut two pieces of the Magnolia Lane DSP as suggested by the sketch.

The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Petal Pink cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies. The flower is cut out of Basic Black cardstock using the Magnolia Memory Dies and adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The whole piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Pearl Basic Jewels which have been coloured with the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends.

Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share a card I created for a Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge. You can find out more about these challenges here – you can view the other entries or take part yourself. The sketch for the challenge is shown below.

I decided on a simple colour scheme of Very Vanilla and Petal Pink, and used a combination of different products.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Very Vanilla cardstock. Instead of using two different patterned papers or colours of cardstock to split the background, as indicated in the sketch, I decided to use a die cut. I used one of the Ornate Borders Dies to cut out a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and adhered this to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the angled panel I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and cut one piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and one piece of the Petal Pink DSP, layered them together and adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To decorate the panel, I cut the three single flowers from the Ornate Borders Dies, layered them together and added a Petal Pink Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequin.

The final touch was the sentiment, from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, which is stamped directly onto the card front in Petal Pink ink.

I hope the like my project! If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

SU Daisy Lane Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’m going to back an old favourite! It’s easy to forget the Annual Catalogue when the new Seasonal Catalogue is released but I try to make sure it gets plenty of use still. One of my particular favourites from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue is Daisy Lane and the coordinating punches.

Today I’d like to share with you a card which is great for using your favourite Designer Series Paper (DSP) because you simply pick the featured colours and create the daisy and foliage to match. I’ve chosen an unusual colour combination to show you that the daisy looks great even in traditionally non-floral colours.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. The main card front is created from a piece of the Woven Threads DSP. I have cut notches in the top and bottom edges of the DSP using the 0.5″ Circle punch. This allows the Linen Thread to sit nicely around the card front, adhered on the back using Tear & Tape. A shorter length of the thread is tied into a bow.

The large daisy is stamped twice in Seaside Spray ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Daisy punch. The daisy is stamped again in Terracotta Tile ink onto Whisper White cardstock and the centre cut out using the 0.5″ Circle Punch. The daisies are offset and layered, together with the centre, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Sprig Punch is used to cut out three pieces of Terracotta Tile cardstock and these are adhered to the back of the daisy using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The daisy can then be adhered to the card front.

The sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink onto Whisper White cardstock and trimmed into a rectangle using the Paper Trimmer. The sentiment piece is adhered to the card front such that the left hand side sits under the thread.

Why not dig out your favourite DSP, check the featured colours (don’t forget you can find this information on the back of the pack or in the catalogue) and make your own version of this card. I’d love to see it once you’ve finished!

Real Red Colour Challenge 1

Hello and welcome to Week 1 of my Real Red Colour Challenge. As always, Week 1 is monochrome and I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Bundle. Here is my project…

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Real Red cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller Whisper White layer. Onto this Whisper White layer I have applied Shimmery White Embossing Paste through one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks using a Palette Knife.

One of the heart images is stamped in Real Red ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Heart Punches. The scalloped Heart Punch is then used to cut out a piece of Real Red cardstock and these pieces are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I have cut a length of Real Red Cotton Ribbon and adhered to the card front using Tear & Tape. The sentiment is stamped in Real Red cardstock onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies. This is adhered over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The heart piece is adhered to the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue AND to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is added using a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I have coloured using the Real Red Dark Stampin’ Blend.

Next time…

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post. join me next time when Real Red will be combined with Coastal Cabana and Old Olive!
