Good Morning Magnolia

One of my favorite stamp sets in the new Stampin’ Up!® 2019/2020 Annual Catalog is called Good Morning Magnolia.  I am not from the south but I always loved Magnolia trees when they were in bloom.  This stamp set also has matching dies called Magnolia Memory.  Both of these products are part of a suite called Magnolia Lane.  The suite also includes the Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder, Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack, ribbon and embellishments.  All of these products go together to make beautiful cards.

To make this card I first stamped the large Magnolia in Smoky Slate Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and colored it using Dark and Light Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Blends.  Then I cut it out using the matching die.  I cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Smoky Slate cardstock diagonally and them embossed it using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  I added a small strip of Calypso Coral cardstock along the diagonal side and attached then to the Petal Pink card base.  Lastly, I cut the word “thanks” from the set of dies called Well Written.

Although I did not use all the products in the Magnolia Lane Suite, I have listed them below for you.  The Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder is 148579 (for some reason it was not available to link below when I wrote this post).

Butterfly Beauty

This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  We used the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies that are in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Believe it or not, all these butterflies are made with one big die.  Well, that is not true.  This image was made with two big dies!  One die does the background of the butterflies.  I used Basic Black cardstock for that.  The other die makes the front of the image.  I used Calypso Coral for the front and then used my Clear Wink Of Stella to add a little sparkle to the butterflies.  It is hard to see in the picture but the sparkle is just perfect.

The best way to adhere these dies are to use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets that are in the Annual Catalog.  Normally you could use Multipurpose Glue but some of the areas are teeny tiny and it is hard to get just a little bit of glue on these areas.  The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets make it super easy.

I used a piece of Petal Pink cardstock that was embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Itty Bitty Birthdays.  This stamp set is also in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  If you purchased the Butterfly Beauty Dies and this stamp set you can get something for free from the Sale-a-bration Catalog!
