Simple Card Making Ideas!

Check out these simple card making ideas made with the Magnolia Lane Product Suite!

These projects are remakes of two of the July Simple Suite Stampers Tutorial bundle projects and therefore, provide a fun sneak peek of the bundle this month. I’ve used the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set, the coordinating Magnolia Memories dies and some of the gorgeous designer series paper included in this awesome product suite.

The original designs for these cards were made by Raquelle Bathe (left) and Tara Stay (right). Thank you Raquelle and Tara!

I mixed things up based on what I had on hand. Plus, it’s always fun to put my own little twist on the designs! Here are my two redos:

For Raquelle’s focal piece she used one of the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cards. These Memories and More cards are awesome for quick cards!

For my two versions below, I used some Magnolia Lane designer series paper. I just love this designer paper! It’s so gorgeous that the card design has to be pretty simple so as not to compete with the paper.

For this first version, I’ve made an “airbow” using some solid white bakers twine and attached it with a glue dot.

I’ve used some Silver Metallic Thread in behind the sentiment and used Rhinestone Jewels to coordinate, instead of pearls.

For this last design, I’ve used the Magnolia Memories Dies to cut out my watercolored flowers.

Aside from these differences, and a different color scheme, I’ve used mostly the same supplies as for the other simple card making ideas shared in today’s post.

The color combination on this card is Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape and Rich Razzleberry.

I’ve heat embossed the flowers with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and watercolored the flowers.
