SU Good Morning Magnolia Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you a card I created for a sketch challenge hosted by CAS(E) this Sketch. You can see the inspiration below…

If you would like to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or take part, you can visit the website here.

I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set in combination with the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP). I hope you like my project…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Mint Macaron cardstock. This is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Mint Macaron cardstock. To adhere to the sketch I have used 2.5cm wide strips of the Garden Lane DSP at the top and bottom of the card front.

The magnolia image is stamped in Mint Macaron ink onto Whisper White cardstock and coloured using the Mint Macaron and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Combos. I decided to fussy-cut the image rather than die cutting because I didn’t want any white space around the image.

The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Mint Macaron cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. The magnolia image is then layered onto this using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A piece of Early Espresso cardstock is cut out using the 2.25″ Circle Punch. The sentiment is adhered to this using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the whole piece adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think the combination of Mint Macaron and Early Espresso works really well and allows the Flirty Flamingo flower to really pop out from the card!

SU Verdant Garden Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’m showcasing another Stamp Set that I feel gets overlooked – Verdant Garden. This card was created for a Global Design Project Challenge.

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 Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and this is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Terracotta Tile cardstock. The main card front is a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, onto which I have stamped the tile pattern in Blueberry Bushel and Terracotta Tile ink.

I cut a window out of the centre of this layer using one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. The cardstock was then embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment (which is from the Morning Star Stamp Set) is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the next smallest Stitched Nested Labels Die. This is layered onto a piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock which has been cut out using the same Stitched Nested Label Die which was used to create the window in the card front.

A length of Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon is doubled over and adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape. A small length of Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain Ribbon is then tied around this. The whole sentiment piece is then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
