Good Morning Magnolia with Detailed Peacock

I am really enjoying some of the new Stampin' Up! 
 colors and dies.  The combination of Soft Sea Foam,
Balmy Blue and Old Olive creates a restful, calming card.
I ran the card base through the Subtles Embossing Folder
and sponged the edges with VersaMark.

For this card, I used the sentiment from Good Morning
Magnolia (page 37) and cut it out with the Sail Home dies
(page 195).  The feathers and branches were created with
the Detailed Peacock dies on page 192.  

The Candy Dots were colored with the Dark Balmy Blue
Stampin' Blend and matches the DSP more closely than
shown in the photo.

This is another color scheme,  using Petal Pink and
the Noble Peacock Foil Sheets.

Good Morning Magnolia

The Magnolia Lane Suite has something for everyone.
The DSP is stunning, the flowers are bold and enable
a huge variety of techniques (blends, embossing,
watercoloring, no-line coloring, and so on).  
The sentiments are lovely and the dies allow for
both card making and 3D options.
This sample is very simple, with lots of white space.
I used Rococo Rose because of it's quiet elegance.
The focus is the sentiment, which is as it should be
with a card for illness.

Tropical Chic Thank You

I really enjoy cards that are simple, yet elegant.
But these can be really challenging projects to
pull off.  I think that the Tropical dies (page 197), 
with coordinating Tropical Chic set on page 93
is a combination that makes elegance very

In this example, I ran my Coastal Cabana
layer through the Pine Planks 3D Embossing Folder and
then swiped it with some VersaMark ink to add texture.
 I layered up some of the die cut foliage (Gray Granite,
Rococo Rose) , stamped the sentiment and the card was done.  
I almost forgot
to add that the bunch of flowers came from the 
Bouquet Bunch Dies on page 191.  This is another
set of dies that enables creation of very elegant cards.
