I love how the Experience Creativity brochure introduces and presents stamping projects in a non- overwhelming way. My favorite projects are the Magnolia Lane Cards (pages 8-9) – that includes the Magnolia Blooms stamp set and the Magnolia Lane Cards & More that coordinate with the Magnolia Lane Suite in the Annual Catalog.
I made some of the cards from the lovely samples that are featured in the Brochure as well as stepped up a card with a little fussing cutting. I made this card during my Facebook Live and you can watch it here.
Start with the Whisper White cs card base from the Magnolia Lane Cards & More pack. Select a card front from the Magnolia Lane Cards & More pack and stamp the sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink at the top center of the card front. Wrap the stamped card front with the Mossy Meadow linen thread from the Magnolia Lane ribbon combo pack a round 3 times and then tie a bow off to the left side.
Stamp the Magnolia flower from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on Whisper White cs. Color the leaves with the Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker, the inner flower petals with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker, and the flower center with So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker. Add Wink of Stella to the flower center for extra sparkle. Use Paper Snips to fussy cut out the flower. Adhere the flower centered over the linen thread next to the bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the card front to the card base.
I also stamped the sentiment and bloom from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink to the inside, back of the card, and on the envelope to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my stepped up version of the lovely cards in the Magnolia Lane Cards & More pack. You can purchase everything to make this card and the other lovely cards featured in the Experience Creativity brochure in my Online Store now.
