FF0034 Hello Magnolia Blossom Z Fold Card

#festivefridaychallenge, #FF0034, National Creativity Day, Fun Fold

I went for creativity and fun fold today for the challenge
over at

I did a Z fold card with the Magnolia Lane suite.
I used a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock cut at 
4 1/4" by 11" and score it in the middle at 5 1/2".
I then score one half of that at 2 3/4" and fold.
So simple. I decorated the front with some 
Magnolia Lane DSP and then the large flower from the
Good Morning Magnolia set.
I stamped the flower in Memento Tuxedo Black
and colored it with the Stampin Blends markers.
I cut it with the matching die called Magnolia Memory dies.
Inside I added some white and Petal Pink 
card stock and stamped my sentiment from  the same set
in Memento Black.
I finished it off with a gold gem in the center of the flower.

***Big tip: since the blends marker bleed 
through the card stock and would show on the back of 
my flower, I added another blank piece of white card stock
cut in the same shape to the back of my colored flower.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you can play along over at the

CTS322 Congratulations Magnolia Blossom


 I have a feeling I will need more of the designer paper
before using it! 
This new suite will be available June 4th called 
Magnolia Lane. 
I used the DSP here by the same name in the middle 
layered with Mossy Meadow card stock then on a Petal 
Pink base. I added the strip 
of Mossy with the sentiment heat embossed in white.
The sentiment is from the Well Said set.
I then cut the flower background in Mossy along 
with the leaves and the detailed flower in Petal. 
Love these dies called Magnolia Memory.
I finished off with some pearls.

Hope you can play along with the sweet sketch 
over at 

Thanks for topping by and have 
a blessed Monday!

Stamp set: Well Said
Ink: VersaMark
Paper: Petal Pink, Mossy Meadow, Magnolia Lane DSP
Magnolia Memory dies, pearls, heat tool, white emboss powder

PP442 Simple Thanks

I love the ruffled emboss folder but it always reminds 
me of siding on a house!  In this case, it makes this card look cool!
I used the folder to emboss a piece of Gorgeous Grape and then layered
the Grape on a white base.
I cut a white stitched oval and popped it up on the Grape card stock.
I stamped the vase in Memento Tuxedo Black on Grape and same 
ink with the leaves on Lemon Lime Twist. I used the matching punch called 
Vase Builder to punch them out.  
I stamped the sentiment on a black banner using the
VersaMark ink and white emboss powder to heat emboss it.
I finished it off with a Grape glimmer dot.
I like this clean and simple theme but since I do not have a plant 
stamp it got me to think creatively.

Hope you can play along over at

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your Sunday!

Geared Up Birthday

I needed to send a birthday card to my step father
this week and I remembered I still had some pieces 
sitting on my desk from November Onstage with SU!
We do some make and takes and I did not assemble mine
but brought the pieces home. I used the black/silver ribbon, 
the DSP square and the Tranquil Tide gears die.
I added them to a Crushed Curry background 
where I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo 
Black from the Geared Up Garage set.
I also stamped the car from this set on black paper
with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder
 to heat emboss. I cut it with the matching dies.
I finished it off with a black base.
Inside I did stamp the sentiment from Perennial Birthday
in Tranquil Tide and the tool box in black on 
white card stock.
Quick card out the door!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

GDP189 So Very Much Butterfly

Love the colors for this week challenge over at 
Gorgeous Grape being a fav color, I knew I would 
use it for the base. I added a layer of Pineapple Punch and a white 
piece of card stock for the background. 
I used a texture stamp from Artisan Textures set in 
Pineapple to create a splashed background for my sentiment and butterflies.
I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala set in GRape
and cut it with new dies called Stitched Nested Labels.
I stamped the butterflies in Coastal Cabana and Grape
and punched them with the matching punch called
Butterfly Duet. 
I added some rhinestones to the butterflies and then colored three 
with my Highland Heather Stampin Blends marker and added to the 
bottom of the card.
Hope you can play along this week and thanks for stopping by!
