MINI MOSSY MAGNOLIA CARD!

You have probably seen a lot of Magnolia cards around the internet.  It’s quite a popular one and rightly so.  This Good Morning Magnolia bundle is very gorgeous.  But have you noticed the smaller version – the Magnolia Blooms set?  It is a very gorgeous little sister.  I have been playing with this set a bit recently.

I wanted to show you this Mini card we made last weekend.  I was at a Craft Show last weekend and this was the Make and Take card that everyone got to make that stopped by my stand.  It is a simple card with little stamping but very effective I think.

This mini card is about 10cm x 10cm (3″x 3″).  Each layer is 4mm (1/8″) smaller in size.

Being a quick card I didn’t want people to be colouring the flowers in.  There wasn’t time for that and for beginner’s that can be challenging.  The small magnolia flower was stamped on the Petal Pink card mat in Mossy Meadow twice on the left hand edge.  Reinking the stamp each time before stamping.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black ink.

The paper strip is from the Good Morning Magnolia Designer Series Paper Stack.  It was all adhered together and of course – add some bling. 🙂

Simple but sweet.

The Magnolia Blooms set is not found in the Annual Catalogue.  It can be found in the smaller Experience Creativity brochure which is aimed for new stampers.  It’s a great little stamp set and what else is great?? The price.  $24.  How awesome is that!

You can find this set in my store though too.  Find it -> HERE and add it to your collection. Please use the Host Code: 6F6336UW

You won’t be sorry.  It has a lovely simple flower and a smaller bud and the little leaf.  What I also love is the sentiments.  These are such useful sentiments for lots of different occasions.  I hope you grab it.  I will share more with it over the next days and weeks.

Thanks for visiting,

SIMPLE AND AVID DAISY LANE!

I wasn’t sure about these cards and I’m still not but you know I am showing you anyway because sometimes things don’t always go right.

For these 2 cards I wanted to use the Daisy Lane to make a card for #simplestamping which is a big focus of Stampin’ Up! at the moment but then step it up a little for a Casual or avid stamper.  

Firstly to define the two.  Simple stamping is for those just starting out with limited supplies and putting together a card with card, ink and stamps.

A Casual stamper is one who likes to make a card semi-regularly you might stay.  They are starting to collect a few more supplies and is using more involved steps and techniques.

An Avid Stamper who is one that you could say is “obsessed”.  They collect all the tools and stamps and will create very regularly.

Who do you say you would be??

We have a card more for the simple stamping first.

This card is not quite one layer.  There is the Rich Razzleberry card base and Petal Pink card mat.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day stamp set with the little flourish from A Big Thank You.  So there is more than one stamp set that you would normally use on a simple card for someone who has very limited supplies.

We have the next one which is for the Casual/Avid stamper. 

This one has a couple of more layers.  Using the same stamp sets though.  Adding the extra elements gives it a little more detail.

I hope you like them. As I said I am still not sure about them and the lighting is not great but there they are for you.

Have a great day,

Jenny

FLIRTY DAISIES!

This week I am sharing some Daisy cards with you using the Daisy Lane Bundle.  

I am sharing this card with you first.  I am not sure about it still but, well … I am still putting it out here as it may inspire someone – in some way.

We are just keeping it simple with this one with a little stamping of the daisies in Flirty Flamingo and Rich Razzleberry.

Just one stamped and punched daisy on one of the daisies to highlight it.  Add a little Clear Faceted Gem to the centre.

Sometimes you can just do simple right. 🙂

I will share more daisies with you again next post,

Jenny
