Good Morning Magnolia

When you have such a pretty stamp set and coordinating dies, you don't need to do a lot to make a  card.  Since I thought the design could be used for a lot of different occasions, I just stamped the front with "Thinking of You" so I would have an assortment of cards on hand for whenever a special occasion comes up and I am in need of a card.

I do like to make cards up ahead of time, some with no sentiment at all, so once I know what I need to send out I can just add the appropriate words and I am finished.

I used coordinating colors of Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow to add some color to my large flower and leaves.  Just a light strip of matching designer series paper to give it a little more background and design, all added to another cut layer of Petal Pink Card Stock,  and this simple card is finished.

A Good Man

If you are looking for a good stamp set for masculine cards, the "A Good Man" set is perfect.  You can make birthday, father's day, retirement, thank you and many more cards that will be great for the men in your life.

I made this for a birthday card, but I think it would also make a great retirement card as well.  I started with a card base of Whisper White Card Stock where I stamped my background image.  I used the Waterfront Set and Balmy Blue, Old Olive and Crumb Cake Ink to create it.

Next I cut out my frame using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, added my relaxing man and my sentiment and placed all of this over my background.

Good Morning Magnolia

The Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and coordinating Magnolia Memory Dies can be purchased together in a bundle to save you 10%.  They were both used on today's card.

In addition, there are several other products that coordinate with the stamp set and dies, and you can see the whole Magnolia Lane Suite on pages 36-37 of the Annual Catalog.

I used a piece of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper for my card layer, and stamped my flowers with Memento Black Ink and colored them in using my Stampin' Blends.  I stamped and cut out some leaves, added them to my card along with my sentiment which was cut out with a Stitched Nestles Labels Die, added some coordinating ribbon and my birthday card is finished.

Wedding Card

For today's card I used two new stamp sets.  The Bloom & Grow set which created the flowers coordinates with the Budding Blooms Dies which I used for the center of the card.  They can be purchased together as a bundle to save you 10%.

The sentiment on both the front and inside of the cards are from the Verdant Garden Stamp Set.  I like when I see images in one set that I know will coordinate with other sets.  You get so much more from your products when you use them with other sets to create all types of cards.
