Magnolia Lane Simple for Saturday #1

 
Simple white embossed magnolia images on Crumb Cake card...

Coloured in with Whisper White craft ink... using my trusty Aqua Painter... and then left to dry...
Then Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow ink applied using Sponge Daubers...

So simple, quick but very effective... and very therapeutic to create too!
Magnolia from Good Morning Magnolia...
Greeting from Kindness & Compassion

Noble Peacock Pop Up Front Step Panel Card - in Pretty Peacock

And this was the favourite of the Noble Peacock papers cards... as the Pretty Peacock colour is causing many a swoon around these parts...

Click here for the Tutorial and the Blueberry Bushel version...
And note again that I will use Granny Apple Green (instead of Old Olive) for this card in the future... still co-ordinates with those foiled papers ... but brighter, lighter and more on trend!

Magnolia Lane & Blooms Double Point Card

Another A6 Double Point Fold card... featuring the Magnolia Lane papers... and the Magnolia Blooms and Sorry For Everything stamps...

But in landscape orientation this time... 
With an extra paper panel (the striped one!)...

And the front panel part all stuck down... the centre greeting Nested Labels panel being stuck down with Stampin Dimensionals... so as to still give some extra dimension...
Click here for the Landscape version... with that extra front panel part if you like it that way! Tutorial for this (and that one) linked there too...

And click here for my Deconstructed Double Point card version... for which there is another one coming up soon...so I will remember to add the recipe and instructions! As it is somewhat simpler... and achieves most of the effect!!
And a quick update on my mother... still in ITU... but one heck of a lot better! Still a long way to go though... What can I say! Been a LONG week!

Introducing Cuckoo For You and Yummy Christmas AND Wednesday Wideo

A double treat for you today.... products from both the Annual and the Christmas catalogues...

First up the fabulous Cuckoo For You bundle... new in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue
Completely "marmite" from everyone's reactions but I have a real soft spot!! Especially as that little door pops out just as you would hope it too!!

Followed quickly by Cuckoo For You dies...

And a video to showcase this bundle is here for you too... or just click on the arrow below to play!
And shhh... would you like a sneak peek from the new and coming Christmas catalogue (aka Autumn Winter aka Holidays catalogue depending on where you live in the world)

Well... we also have a co-ordinating Gingerbread House... aka Yummy Christmas... which has quickly tipped me over the buying edge! Yup... too cute!

Tuesday Tip with Daisy Lane punched daisies

 
Just a quickie for you today... 

Want to make smaller daisies than our 2 punched sizes... so you can layer and layer to your heart's content!

Well just bring out your Daisy Lane bundle and Layering Circles dies... and cut like so...
Then a die size smaller... and so on... starting with both the (Large) Daisy Punch or Medium Daisy Punch daisies...

And if you want to add a bit of shape to those ends... then just combine with this tip here... 

Sorry that I could not produce lots of daisies and produce a finished multi layer daisy for you...but I am sure that you can get the idea from this post... that way you know that it can be done if you need to!

More on Monday - Pressed Petals cards #5 with Round Up...

 
So I made 6 cards with the "card topper" piece of Pressed Petals paper... and here is the last one...
There were more toppers to use to create more... but then "life got in the way"... so I had to quickly put it everything away... which was a shame as I was really enjoying making these...
But I hope that these give you some ideas as to what to do with your papers....
And here are the 4 cards using the Sorry for Everything stamp set...
So you can get a better idea of some of the sentiments included...
Though these were my favourite cards with the suite... click on the pictures to go straight there... with the Card Fold Tutorial being on the green Get Well Soon one!

Double framed Daisy Lane card

CASEing me... as this has been one of the favourite cards of the year in classes... but using Daisy Lane this time instead of butterflies...

And spot the stunning Metallic Designer Elements daisy centre... looks gorgeous!
So then had to add gold embossed leaves and Gold Foil to my Gray Granite for the Stitched Rectangles to finish off...

Click here for the card tutorial...
And a quick update - my mother is still critically ill in ITU... so my life is there at present - normal blog service will resume as soon as possible... please bear with me...

Magnolia Lane Double Point Card

Loving all the Double Point cards around on the web using the Stitched Nested Labels dies... a perfect match of card design and product!!
So thanks to the originator of the use of this concept this time round... which I think may have been Phyllis Shively &  Lisa Curcio here... who shares a video tutorial for you too...

Though I believe the originator of the card fold "way back when in 2017" is the talented Jeanie Stark who can can be found here...  along with her tutorial...
OR just "Google" or "You Tube" A6 Double Point Card if you need a video tutorial for an A6 version (from A4 card)
.
Though my "brain" can't work out the appeal of the extra front part that is formed... aka the flap part!
Apart from the fact that it does give a bit of dimension... so I will just be sticking that down! Which still keeps the extra dimension if you use 3D pads...
Front greeting from Genuine Gems... love it! 
And inner greeting using my chopped up Happy Birthday from Perennial Birthday... the one at the bottom left below... that I chopped and can mount one word on top of the other as for this version... or side by side for the designed long version!
Oh and Click here for a simpler version of this Double Point card... aka the Deconstructed one!

Nested Label (Flat) Pop Up Front Step Panel Card

 
Warned you there were a few of these... this one being tailormade to the Nested Labels dies... again using the lovely Noble Peacock foiled papers... with Everything Amazing ... 
Main card as per this tutorial but the front panel is slightly different... and I apologise if I don't get back to this card this week to add the details for that front part... but as I said... life is not my own this week... so I am pre-writing with short and sweet creative shares for a change...
I particularly love the usage of the Family Party stamp set to tell any family person that they are amazing! Thank you to our Jane for spotting that... brilliant idea!
