Crumb Cake and Good Morning Magnolia

welcome back to my corner of the world.

Today’s card is a very simple design – using the beautiful Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set.  I try to use just one stamp set on a card and I particularly liked that this set has 3 great greetings that will fit into the punch I wanted to use as well as smaller flowers and leaves for decorating my envelope and the inside of the card.

I chose to use the ‘thinking of you’ sentiment, perfect for almost any occasion, the ‘hello’ sentiment would be perfect for a birthday and the ‘thank you’……. just speaks for itself 🙂

Abstract Impressions ~ Flowers and Hugs

Today’s color combination was inspired by the Garden Impressions Cardstock Pack – where you get 8 sheets of 3 different colors – So Saffron, Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral and coordinates with the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.  It is not a combination that would have come to mind but Stampin’ UP! does all the hard work and makes me look good.

I chose to go with the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set – which allows me to build up my flowers and has some really cute greetings, it also has a coordinating Springtime Impressions Thinlet Dies which I used to emboss one of my layers.
