Magnolias and more magnolias!!

Well if you follow my business Facebook page you will know that I have been having fun stamping and colouring the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, lent to me by my friend and team mate Lindy, who also lent me the coordinating Magnolia Memory dies (so that I didn't have to fussy cut!).


I love using my Stampin' Blends when I can and I also had some fun with embossing and then water colouring with my inks and Aqua Painters.

I thought before I go to bed as it has been a busy week, and I expect much of the same this week, working two days preparing tax returns, support meetings, family commitments and a night of stamping with friends. along with my household and caring duties, I would quickly share the cards I made with the images I coloured.






Several of these cards have already been popped into envelopes and in the mail for some special people...one is even finding it's way across to the UK!

I have really been enjoying some quiet, peaceful colouring this week in between the busyness and I must stamp a few more magnolias for future projects before returning this stamp set & dies to Lindy. Thanks so much my friend for lending it to me and allowing me this therapy time.

As you can see I haven't embellished these cards too much allowing the magnolia to take centre stage and allowing me to put these cards together reasonable quickly, apart from some time colouring. You might also see that I am quite enjoying embossing my greetings on my card fronts lately. If you want to replicate any of these beautiful cards then the product links are below, just click on the image and it will take you directly to that product in my online store, open 24/7 for your convenience.

A couple of others that I have shared on other social media platforms that I did previously I will also share here too. These two and one of the one's above I CASED a layout from our current Annual Catalogue, always a great place for ideas and inspiration. Need a catalogue? Contact me and I will get one to you.





Don't forget to leave some by making a comment below and letting me know which card is your favourite.

Have a happy and safe week and thanks for stopping by!

Geared Up To Celebrate!

I was recently asked to make a masculine birthday card and so of course I grabbed my Geared Up Garage stamp set which I have enjoyed creating with before. The recipient was very happy with this card and felt the birthday man will like it too.


The background was made first by embossing my brick wall and then using Versamark ink and both white and silver embossing powder heat embossing a shiny and patchy effect on the wall. I then tore the side of the cardstock for a more rugged appearance.

I also grunged (is that a word, it is now!) up the gears by sponging some Soft Suede ink on to the Crumb Cake die cut gears and then clear embossing them. A few smaller ones I did not emboss but left them plain.


The car I coloured with my Stampin' Blends a mounted it up with some dimensionals above the greeting. I added a oil can both on the front and a different one inside the card which I also decorated with some retired designer series paper.



I loved creating both feminine and masculine cards as well one's for special occasions, like birthdays, weddings, engagements and of course new babies!
