Magnolia Thank you ~ DSP Panel Card

welcome back to my corner of the world

Magnolias have become so popular this year – we had a Southern Magnolia in our garden at our former house, the blooms were superb but sadly only lasted about a day.  The leaves were a lovely, shiny deep green on the top side and  kinda gingery furry underneath – we loved them until they got into the pool and choked up the pool cleaner!

I have used  the lovely Magnolia Lane DSP for my focal point for my card today which was my thank you card for my  customers who shopped with me for their SU goodies in September.

Magnolia Blooms 4 Panel Card ~ Video Tutorial

welcome back to my corner of the world.

I wanted to try a fancy fold called the 4 panel card – I checked out ideas on the internet and came across some lovely samples but they were all started with a 12 x 12 piece of card.  I have some colors in this size card stock but I have a much better choice of colors in the regular letter size of 11 x 8 1/2.  So I had a footle around with some copy paper and came up with a design using this size card.

I chose to use a couple of stamp sets on this card – Magnolia Blooms and Artisan Textures.  As you will see in the video I also a took some ‘greeting’ stamps the Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set.

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

Tucked away  on page 168 of the 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog are some of the cutest notecards – they have a dainty scalloped edge to the card as well as the envelope.  The Scalloped Notecards and Envelope pack contains 20 cards with envelopes – 5 each of 4 different colors.

I chose to use these along with the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set and some water color pencils to make the Thank You cards for my lovely customers who shopped with me for their Stampin’ UP! supplies in July.

Peacock Tails with Floral Essence Birthday Card

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

Today’s card is the result of clearing off my work bench before going away on holiday!  At the end of July I was part of a Scrapbook blog hop and had decided to use the Detailed Peacock dies along with the Noble Peacock Specialty Paper.  Rather than cut into my specialty paper straight away I had a little practice with some regular card – just to see what it would look like and if it would work on the page I was designing.  Glad to say that it did – click here to see the results!

So now I was left with two perfectly cut pieces of Shaded Spruce card that I just could not bring myself to throw away!
