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.

Magnolia Lane part 4

Welcome to part 4 of my Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane showcase. This week I have another matching set of projects for you – card, gift tag and gift box. To create these projects I have used the stamp set, dies, DSP and ribbon bundle. A full list of the supplies can be found at the end of the blog.

If you have missed parts 1 to 3 and would like to catch up you can find them here… part 1, part 2, part 3.

Gift Tag

Let’s start with the gift tag. The base of the tag is created from one of the gorgeous sheets of DSP that features in this suite. To be honest you could choose any of the designs and it would look fabulous. I’ve continued the colour scheme from the DSP into the sentiment piece (Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow in this case). The Magnolia is cut from Whisper White cardstock with a centre of So Saffron. The die set features three sizes of this Magnolia flower so I cut two of each size to give a nice, full, layered flower. The finishing touch is the ribbon. I think using both ribbons from the bundle make it look extra special!

Card

The card is created from a base of Mossy Meadow cardstock with a layer of the same DSP as used for the tag. The sentiment piece is also created in the same way, using the Everyday Label punch. The Mossy Meadow punched shape is left complete but the Petal Pink shape has been trimmed such that the Mossy Meadow cardstock provides a border. The Magnolia flower has been cut and layered as with the gift tag. Although this gives some lovely dimension this card still fits in a standard Stampin’ Up! envelope.

Gift Box

The base of the gift box is one of the Stampin’ Up! Mini Pizza Boxes (these come in packs of 8 and make giving small gifts so easy). I have decorated this with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock, layered with a piece of the gorgeous DSP. This has simply been decorated with the Magnolia but I hope you’ll agree it looks far from simple!

Next time…

I hope you have enjoyed exploring the Magnolia Lane Suite with me and have maybe been inspired to create something yourself. If you have any questions or comments you can leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com. Next week is a new month so we’ll start to explore a new Product Suite.

Magnolia Lane part 3

Hello and welcome to part 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Suite Showcase. You can find the previous posts (part 1 and part 2) here if you haven’t read them.

There’s just one project this week as it is a fancy fold card and so is a bit more advanced. I have chosen a Shadow Box card and it’s the first one I have made so I hope you like it!

Creating the base…

The base is Early Espresso cardstock and is an A4 sheet trimmed to 4” wide. This is scored at 4, 5.5, 9.5 and 11” which leaves a tab at the end for assembly. A 3.5×3.5” square has been cut from the first 4×4” section using a die and a piece of DSP has been adhered to the other 4×4” section to give the background.

Creating the inner section…

A second piece of Early Espresso cardstock was trimmed to 6×2” and scored at 1 and 5”. I used the flourish die from the Magnolia Memory die set to add some detail. Onto this section I adhered the sentiment piece which consists of a 2.25” circle in Mossy Meadow cardstock and a 2” circle in Petal Pink. The sentiment and flower images were stamped in Early Espresso ink. ‘Open’ leaves, cut from the Magnolia Memory die set were adhered behind the sentiment. Two of the ‘open’ flowers were die cut from the set and adhered to the inside of the window.

Assembly…

At this point you can adhere the inner section to the edges of the main Shadow Box and assemble the whole thing. I used Tear and Tape for the construction and Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add the embellishments. Once the box is constructed you can add the flower, die cut from the DSP, to the outside of the box for the finishing touch.

I think the use of ‘open’ die cut images is really effective for a shadow box because they cast a more interesting shadow on to the back of the box. I have to say I found these easier to make than I expected. The only fiddly bit is attaching the inner section but I think it is worth the effort. I hope you agree.

Next time…

I hope you can join me next week for some more Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane inspiration.

Magnolia Lane – part 2

Last week I introduced you to the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Suite of products and we made some simple but beautiful projects using the stamp set. If you missed this blog post you can find it here. This week we are going to add in the die set, DSP and ribbon bundle to take our creations to the next level.

Again we have a set of three matching projects. I hope you like them!

Gift tag

Let’s start with the gift tag which is made from a base of Mossy Meadow cardstock and shaped using the Scalloped Tag Topper and Detailed Trio punches.

I’ve added a 2” punched circle of Petal Pink cardstock but layered it with Vellum cardstock (cut out using the Starburst punch) to keep it subtle.

Stamping and heat embossing the flower in white makes it easy to watercolour the image as the embossing powder serves as a resist to help prevent the ink going outside the lines! The watercolouring was achieved by lightly pressing the ink pads (Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink) onto a small acrylic block and applying using an Aqua Painter. Adhering the flower using dimensionals helps it to stand out from the background.

I also heat embossed the sentiment in white and cut out using the Classic Label punch (you’ll notice that I’ve trimmed one end). Rhinestone Basic Jewels have been coloured using the Dark Mossy Meadow Blend and adhered around the tag. The final touch is added with the length of Linen Ribbon secured with the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.

Card

The card base is Mossy Meadow cardstock cut and scored to A6 size. Next is a layer of Petal Pink cardstock which I have stamped with the flourish image in Mossy Meadow ink. Although this is different from the other projects, it helps to fill in some of the ‘blank space’ and because I’ve kept to the colour scheme it still fits in well.

I’ve added a 2” punched circle of DSP but layered it with Vellum cardstock to tone it down. The flower and sentiment were created as for the gift tag and the finishing touch is provided by the coloured Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Gift box

The basic gift box is one of the Mini Pizza Boxes which come in a pack of 8. As above I have layered Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink cardstock followed by DSP and Vellum cardstock. The flower and sentiment were created as previously and again I have added the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Next week…

I hope you have enjoyed discovering more of the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Suite. Join me next week for yet more inspiration.
