Good Morning Magnolia for #PCC356

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my project for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.  The sketch for this week is a great one that's open to so many possibilities.  For my Card today I used products from the Magnolia Lane Suite.  Here's a look at my card.

I decided to do a little no line stampin' blend coloring on my card today.  Here's a look at the sketch that inspired my card today.  You can click on the image below to visit the Paper Craft Crew Website and see what the other design team members created this week, and if you want to play along you can do that there as well.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card with a Purple Posy card base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I stamped the small magnolia from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set around my card base in Purple Posy ink.  Yes, Purple Posy is officially out and able to be purchased.  The issue with the ink has been fixed and it's working great now.  Once I had that image stamped all out I stamped it on a scrap of Thick Whisper white cardstock so that I could do a little no line stampin' blend coloring.  
But, before I did my no line coloring I colored a piece of the Magnolia Lane Designer series paper with my Purple Posy Stampin' Blends.  This is a great way to alter your designer series paper to match your projects.  I used another pattern from the same pack of paper matted to a piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  I have another piece of Mossy Meadow behind that as well.  I also added a small strip of basic black between the card base and the designer series paper.  
To do my no line coloring I stamped the image in Purple Posy Ink.  But, to get the shade light enough I stamped it on a scrap paper and then onto my thick whisper white cardstock.  Even with Purple Posy being a super light color I still wanted it to be just a little lighter.  I started my coloring with the stem and leaves.  For that I used my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends in both light and dark.  For the flower I used Purple Posy Light and dark and Highland Heather Light and Dark.  The flower took the longest time to color.  The thing with no line coloring is that you have to color the image dark enough so that you have a clear divide between each petal.  Basically you have to have a clear difference between your shadows and highlights, maybe that will make it more understandable.  
To finish off my card I popped up the magnolia bloom using a Stampin' Dimensional, and added the sentiment strip and a few basic Rhinestones.  I hope that you have enjoyed my little card today, and that you will give it a try.  Thanks for dropping by I am happy that you did.  Just a little side note today kicked off the 24 Hour Stamp Sale over at my online store.  You will find a select section of stamps there.  The sale ends tonight at 11:59 Mountain Time.  
Happy Stampin'

Rick's July Monthly Card Class: Featuring the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to talk to you about my Monthly card class.  I hold a card class each month which is either $15.00 or FREE with a qualifying order.  I decided last month to start offering that to my online customers as well.  Last month I didn't advertise this because I wanted to see how it would go and if it was a benefit to you, and to see that I could handle adding this in to my monthly schedule.  I am happy to say that I am NOW planning on making this a monthly offering to everyone.

This month I am going to feature the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set and matching dies in my class.


You have two ways to get the materials for this class.
  • You can pay $15.00 and I will send you the Class kit.  The kit contains the supplies to make three cards and envelopes.  You will provide your own adhesive, stamp set, and ink.  
  • Second Way to take this class:  Place a qualifying order of $25.00 (before shipping and taxes) using my host code for this month and earn the Magnolia Lane Kit for free.  
I will start mailing out the card kits on or before July 19th.  When you purchase the class either way mentioned above I will pay the shipping costs to you.  Note that I can only offer this class to US residents only.  If you live outside the US I will also have a PDF tutorial available that you can purchase.  

You can see a sneak peek of the cards we are making in the image above.  These cards are designed for all levels of crafters from beginners to advanced.  You will need the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set plus a few additional supplies to complete this class.  If you don't have or want to order the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set you can totally change stamp sets and use something you already have.

Good Morning Magnolia Thank You Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card I made using the new Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set.  This set comes out on June 4th in the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  And, actually is in one of the new suites of products in the catalog.  This suite is called Magnolia Lane Suite and I am sure you are going to love everything about it.  This suite features all kinds of yummy new products from a embossing folder,  the wonderful new stamp set I used today, designer series paper, memory & more card pack, some fun embellishments, just to name a few.  Let's have a closer look at my card shall we!

Yes, that large flower which is the focal image of my card is a large Magnolia stamp.  And, as you can tell it fits almost the entire front of my A2 (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2) card.  The stamps in this set are line images that are great for your favorite color media.  I picked Stampin' Blends today, to color my large Magnolia, but you could use anything that you would like or feel comfortable with.  I can not wait to try our watercolor pencils and traditional watercolors to color this image in.  I think it will be a show stopper.

As far as the blends that I used I went with Mossy Meadow light & dark blends, Petal Pink Light & Dark Blends, and just a little of the Daffodil Delight Light Stampin' Blend for the center of the magnolia.  For the stem I used both the light and dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blends.  I would have used So Saffron but it's not out yet (that blend color is new in the 2019 Annual catalog and is on my list of things to order on June 4th) instead of the light Daffodil Delight, but I think it looks just fine.  Stampin' Blends are great and easy to work with since there are only two colors you have to mix to get a good blend.
Behind the large magnolia image I used some of the new Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper (also part of this suite and available June 4th) as a backdrop.  This pack of designer series paper is chalked full of amazing designs that can be used for anyone.  I matted the designer series paper on a piece of whisper white cardstock to tie in the white drawn leaves.  I then placed the entire card front on a Rococo Rose card base which measured 4 1/4 x 11 and I scored it at 5 1/2 to make a top folding card.  I stamped the Thanks sentiment from the set on some scrap cardstock and made it into a banner and added stampin' dimensionals behind it.  I also popped up the magnolia the same way.
To finish off the card the only embellishment I used was a double bow I made with the Mossy Meadow Linen thread.  This Linen Thread comes in a combo pack of ribbon that coordinates with this suite.  I guess you want to know the name of it so you can add it to your June 4th shopping list right?  The combo pack is called the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, and comes with the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (5 yards) and some Linen Ribbon with white edges (also 5 yards).  I added the double bow with a mini glue dot right on the stem.  And that was how easy that was.  You all know I like easy and quick.
If you peak inside the opening of the card as it's standing in this picture you can see the other side of the designer series paper.  I just used a whisper white insert and attached the left over strip of Designer Series Paper to it.  This added the touch of color and coordination to the inside of the card without any fuss.  Another thing you all now I like.  No fuss no muss.
I hope that you liked my card today, and that you will be adding this suite of products to your list of must have items for June 4th when the catalog goes live on my shopping page.  You will find a list of all the items I used on this card below in the shopping list so that you can write it all down on your wish list.  I will see you soon with more inspiration!  Happy Stampin'!
