Magnolias anyone?

Good afternoon all my lovelies out there!

Oh boy have I had fun today creating some cards to share with you using some of our beautiful new products.  My current favourite being the Magnolia Lane Bundle.  I just love Magnolias and these stamps and dies are to die for!  Hahaha!!   The DSP is also extremely beautiful.  You can see one piece of the DSP in this pictures shown.

CARD NUMBER 1

The first card is using the silver embossing paste and the brick wall stencil to create a background for the large magnolia flower which I have stamped in Crumb Cake only very lightly and then lightly coloured using water in an Aqua pen and the ink pad (use the opposite side of the pad as a palette).  I have used Petal Pink and Old Olive to do the colours.  The sentiment is from the Painted Glass set and embossed using silver heat embossing powder.  I have added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a bit of bling.  The card front is on whisper white and is mounted on Soft Sea Foam cardstock

Magnolia Lane Dynamic Lace card

Check out this beautiful white embossed cardstock made by using the new Lace 3D embossing folder.  I have added a strip of some of the Magnolia Lane DSP and again I have coloured two smaller magnolias using Petal Pink and Old Olive.  The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle and us mounted on an Oval Stitched die.  The Thanks is heat embossed in gold and the Petal Pink flourishes surround it is a stamp from the Magnolia Lane set as well.  A simple but elegant card.

Tea Light Flowers

Hi all,

Just a quick post today as I have spent most of the day in the craft room making these and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.  Apologies to the neighbours if my singing was too loud but it is so much fun crafting with my music blaring and me singing out of tune to my playlist

Don’t you just love these tea light flowers?  I was inspired by another demonstrator Kareth Sims in America who made some using the light bulb punch.  But as I don’t have the light bulb punch a light bulb moment occurred to me to use the Daisy Punch.  Maybe a little bit more tedious but so much fun to make.  Would make lovely table decorations for a special occasion don’t you think?  Let me know how you would use them!

The card in the background is a card that we did at a technique class recently using the embossing paste.  Loooooove this stuff, so much fun to play with and colour too!

The butterfly is water coloured in pastel tones similar to a card in a recent catalogue.  Do you know which one???

Couple of questions for you to answer here today!  Would love some of your feedback.

Well until next time, keep on crafting.
