Lilac Inspiration with Magnolia Dreams - Blog Hop & Winners!

 

Today is our inspiration blog hop with our GD shop team and there will be so many different project ideas for you! I wanted to share an elegant an easy to make set of notecards in beautiful lilac and aqua. The new digital paper pack Magnolia Dreams has a color palette that allows you to play with a few more colors other than fuscia and teal. You'll see me mixing and matching SVG cuts, some mine and another from a different designer and also traditional die cuts. Follow me to check out how I made these dreamy cards.

I am using 2 tones of lilac specialty cardstock and an aqua cardstock by by Paper Temptress, our collab partner this month who created a specialty paper pack that will let you make a large amount of projects in a variety of colors matching the patterns from our digital pack perfectly.


This card base has 3 different layers. I used Paper Temptress Aqua Basis 80#, Amethist Mica Metallic and Mountain Rose Glimmer.

Layer 1. I started of by cutting our A2 detailed medallion panel from the new Magnolia Dreams SVG pack on the Cricut Explore Air 2. That is going to be our first layer, sitting on top of the card base.

Layer 2. I also cut a Anna Griffin Flourish Cards and Embellishments card base sized to an A2. I did cut the back of the flourish card to create a matching layer for the medallion panel. Although the designs are different both of the panels match to perfection and you can see a hint of the flourish design under the medallion panel for a modern layered die cut look that is so on trend right now!

Layer 3. Our third layer is smooth. It's a simple A2 card panel cut from one of the patterns in the new Magnolia Dreams digital paper pack. Place this panel underneath the flourish and medallion layers.


Layer 4. Of course we need to embellish our notecards. I cut a traditional stitched circle die cut from the new Therm O Web Gina K. Designs line (from the Large Set) and added it to the center of the card.

Layer 5. Add a piece of lilac gross grain ribbon across the card panel and then add the last layer, a medallion SVG embellishment that comes in the new Magnolia Dreams SVG pack. Optional: Add some sparkle to the medallion customizing it with glitter. There is a super easy way to make your own matching glitter svg cuts. More on that technique HERE.



A rhinestone embellishment finishes off these notecards beautifully. Notecards shouldn't be plain. The new Magnolia SVG cuts are so fast to make using your electronic cutter and they look so detailed and elegant. Customize your notecards mixing and matching cuts and create a personalized card that everyone will love!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
