Hello there, stamping friends! Rochelle Blok, here. I’m an Artisan Design Team member from Melbourne, Australia, and today I’m sharing two of my Stampin’ Up! loves—the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set (item 149298) and coloring with Stampin’ Blends. The very minute I saw the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set in the 2019–2020 annual catalog it was on my must-have list. 

Hands up if you just love to colour! ME, ME, ME!!!


I wanted my stamped images to look different from all of the other amazing creations out there that were made using this stunning stamp set, so I didn’t use Magnolia Lane Suite colours as displayed in the 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

.
For my first card, I made a template out of printer/copy paper and lightly traced the circle on Whisper White Thick Cardstock (item 100730). Then, after inking up the large magnolia image using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad (item 132708), I stamped it on my cardstock, making sure you could see most of the floral bloom on the bottom corner of the card—then just a small portion of it on the top corner of the card.

After coloring the magnolia using Stampin’ Blends, I added a piece of Basic Black Cardstock (item 121045) embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (item 151775). I then layered on Purple Posy 1/2" (1.3 cm) Scalloped Linen Ribbon (item 149706); Very Vanilla 3/8" (1 cm) Scalloped Lace Trim (item 149593); Sahara Sand 5/8" (1.6 cm) Woven Threads Trim (item 149499); and Linen Thread (item 104199). I then finished off the card with the “Hello” sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set, die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies (item 148551) and Pearl Basic Jewels (item 144219).

Stampin’ Blends used for this card:
  • Magnolia: Highland Heather Light (item 146881); Purple Posy Dark (Item 149565); Purple Posy Light (item 149564)
  • Leaves: Mossy Meadow Dark (item 148546); Mossy Meadow Light (item 148545)
  • Branch: Crumb Cake Dark (item 144581); Crumb Cake Light (item 144582)

For my second card, I stamped the large and small floral images from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set across the front of the Whisper White Thick Cardstock. Again, I made a template with printer/copy paper to help me stamp the images and place the rectangle die cut in the right place.

Once all of the images were colored, I added a Basic Black Cardstock “Stitched Rectangle” die cut plus a piece of Vellum Cardstock (item 101856) layered on top. I then used one of the cards from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack (item 149554) and trimmed a piece off to match. Got to have things matchy-matchy! The card was then finished off using the Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim, Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (item 149611), Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine (item 124262), and the “Thanks” sentiment die cut from the Stitched Rectangle Dies (item 148551).

Stampin’ Blends used for this card:
  • Magnolia: Mango Melody Dark (item 147944); Mango Melody Light (item 147943); So Saffron Light (item 149555)
  • Leaves: Mossy Meadow Dark (item 148546); Mossy Meadow Light (item 148545)
  • Branch: Crumb Cake Dark (item 144581); Crumb Cake Light (item 144582)

My last card is a bit “pretty in pink.” I do love most things pink and this is no exception. For this card I did make a template again, but this time it was to mask the outside area (where I didn’t want stamped images) so I could create a frame for the floral images. I cut a piece of printer/copy paper sized the same as the card front and then die cut the paper where I wanted the rectangle to go.

Once that was cut, I placed my template on my cardstock and then stamped the floral images. Once the images were colored, I used two “Stitched Rectangles” to make my rectangle frame. Again, I finished off the card with another sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and Rococo Rose 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon (item 149704), Sahara Sand 5/8" Woven Threads Trim, Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, and some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack (item 149485).

Stampin’ Blends used:
  • Magnolia: Rococo Rose Dark (item149571); Rococo Rose Light (item 149570); Flirty Flamingo Light (item 147031)
  • Leaves: Mossy Meadow Dark (item 148546); Mossy Meadow Light (item 148545)
  • Branch: Crumb Cake Dark (item 144581); Crumb Cake Light (item 144582)

I love how vibrant and bright these cards are, and even when I use the same or similar products, each card looks so different.
I hope that this will give you some more inspiration and maybe some out-of-the-box ideas. And if you don’t have this stamp set, you should get it TODAY!!
