Welcome to the third Monday of the month... and another Stamp Review Crew hop! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. Today we are featuring Good Morning Magnolia, a truly splendid stamp set that is part of the Magnolia Lane Suite. If you just came from Holly's blog, The Rubber Redneck, you can continue on by clicking the "Next" button below. If you want to go back and admire Holly's projects again, just click "Previous"!
Today I have two cards and a 3D project! Okay, now pick yourselves up off the floor....I do occasionally make something other than cards, and this is going to be a pillow gift filled with chocolates for my daughter when she comes to visit in a few weeks.
I started with a 4" x 4" sheet of Magnolia Lane DSP and scored/folded at 3/4" all around to make the lid for the box. Then I used a 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Whisper White Thick, scored/folded at 1" all around to make the box bottom. The magnolia and leaves were made using the Magnolia Memory Dies that coordinate with the stamp set.
The next project is a card that features that gorgeous BIG magnolia blossom. It's so much fun to color! I used the Old Olive Foil from The Noble Peacock Suite and embossed with the Scripty 3D folder, then adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat.
The blossom was colored with Light Petal Pink, Light Mango Melody, Bronze, and Mossy Meadow Combo Stampin' Blends. After it was colored, it was cut with the die and adhered to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Some Old Olive rhinestones (also from the Noble Peacock Suite) were added to dress it up a bit more.
Next is something a little different....a CAS thank you card. I wanted to get away from the magnolia for this one, and the flourish and scripty Thank You just begged for something different.
The flourish mimics the lines of the border die beautifully. I decided to add some more foil from Noble Peacock (seriously, Stampin' Up! needs to carry foil in ALL the colors!) along the bottom of the border.
Everything was stamped in Night of Navy, with the exception of the leaves, which are Seaside Spray stamped off once. A bit of gingham from the new Neutrals DSP was the perfect "foil" to the foil, don't you think?
Up next is New Zealand crew member Nikki Spencer over at My Sandbox. I can't wait to see what she has done with this magnificent magnolia suite!
