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.

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 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'!
