Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping Episode 29: Magnolia Blooms Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you share with you the latest Episode of Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping.  In this episode we are going to make a super quick and easy birthday card using one of the Stamp Sets from the Beginners Brochure.  You can download it if you haven't gotten to the right of this post under catalogs.  For those of you that haven't joined me for a Saturday Simple Stamping Card; these are all designed with the person that have never stamped before in mind or the person that is just starting out.  They are super easy projects that you can recreate without problems, only using a few supplies.  This week as I mentioned we are making a birthday card.  Here's a look at the card we are going to make and I will also share with you a version that is stepped up just a little bit also closer to the end of this post.

For the card today I used a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 a smaller strip that was about 1 1/2" x 4 1/4, a piece of Whisper White Cardstock 4 x 5 1/4, and two ink pads Petal Pink and Tuxedo Memento Black.  I am using the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set (#152729) for my card today.  This stamp set was designed to coordinate with the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set from the 2019 Annual Catalog.  It has some images that was made a little smaller from the stamp set but has some sentiments you can only get in this set.  It's also a photopolymer set meaning you can see right through it, unlike the Good Morning Magnolia set which is a cling set (red rubber).
I started off by taking the whisper white cardstock and stamping the larger magnolia image from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set around the card in Petal Pink ink.

Next I came in with the Magnolia Bloom from the set and stamped it around randomly.  I started filling in any open areas that I had on the cardstock.

After that I came in with the little leaf image and filled in all my open areas on the whisper white cardstock.  If you have followed my Simple Stamping Series you have seen me do this before.  What we are doing is creating our own designer series paper.

So once I had everything stamped the way I wanted it on the whisper white cardstock it was time to attach it to our card front.  So I folded and burnished the card base using my bone folder (an must have tool for any project; this allows you to get a nice clean crisp line).  Once this was done I added it to the card front with a little Snail Adhesive.
I then took the 1 1/2" strip of Petal Pink Cardstock and stamped the Happy Birthday Sentiment and made a diagonal edge to create a banner.  I attached that using Snail Adhesive also.  I placed it about in the bottom 3/4 of the card.

Step it Up Just a Little: 

Now as I mentioned above I would share with you a slightly stepped up version of this card.  All I did to step it up a little this week was add the addition of a punch.  Yes, that's what I said.  And that one little addition changes the look of the card completely.  
 I could dress this up a little bit more with the addition of some matching ribbon and a few rhinestones and create an even bigger look.  I did a piece of whisper white to the inside of this version with the addition of some stamping going up the side.  You can kind of see that in the picture above.  
Thanks for dropping by today, I have to run and get ready for an event that I am attending today.  See you tomorrow for the next project in my Color Inspiration Series.  You can find all the supplies listed below.
