Magnolia Bud Card

Last night I had my Stamp in the New Catalog event.  It was a lot of fun!  For a while it was a little crazy, helping several people at once, but that's the nature of the game.  Seven people attended the event.  Well, actually 6, since one had to work, so her mom stamped everything and brought the rest back so she could put the cards together herself.  


Card #1

So Saffron Magnolia Buds.  It looks a little bit simple with all the white spade on the card, but there is actually a lot going on.

The buds are colored using both the So Saffron Stampin' Blends markers and the light Old Olive Stampin' Blends.  They aren't perfectly colored this time.  I started out using the dark and making swoosh lines out into the center of the card.  Then repeat the same with the light to fill in the remainder.  I actually really like how it came out.

The two pieces of paper are added to ground the card.  The So Saffron piece is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder and the smaller piece is from the Magnolia Lane DSP.  

The card was a little too white, so I sponged some So Saffron in the middle of the card.  

Add a bow made from the Linen Thread, an Old Olive leaf, and some Rhinestones and call it complete.  Just like my club people, I spoiled these ladies.  I pre-made the Linen Thread bows for them.  It was either do them ahead of time, or probably end up doing most during the event.  It was a little thing, but boy, did they appreciate having the bows done for them!

When looking at the colors this way, they definately would make for a beautiful Autumn card.  But, not this card!

Hope you enjoyed the card.  Click on the above picture for dimensions and instructions.

Until next time...Stampin' Always,
