Good Morning Magnolia from Stampin Up

Image
I knew when i saw this stamp set and papers that it was going to be one of the first things i ordered from the annual catalogue. 
I love how Stampin' up match everything so perfectly. 
Firstly i stamped the large flower in 'Early Espresso' ink, i then used our fabulous 'Stampin' Blends' in the dark and light shade of 'So Saffron' to colour in the petals and my aqua painter pen and ink 'Mossy Meadow' for the leaves. I love how this gives the leaves an aged look. 



A square of 5x5 'Crumb cake' cardstock was randomly stamped on in 'Early Espresso' ink to create the background. I stamped once with full ink and then again without inking back up so i could get sharper and softer tones. A small strip of dsp wrapped with some ribbon from the 'Magnolia Lane ribbon combo pack' is placed along the bottom of the card to add some interest and texture.
The large flower was placed onto the card using dimenionals before adding 'Thanks'…

Back after a break away.

Hello all, sorry i haven't posted on here for a while I've been busy with other things and then have just come back from a lovely holiday in France. The weather was gorgeous and sunny, we spent the days fishing, laying in the sun, visiting amazing chateaus and sampling the delicious food! We are already looking at when we can go back again. 
So back to crafting....i have a few projects lined up ready to show you over the next few days. If you can't wait and want to take a look now hop over to my facebook page Caramel & Cream HERE You can also see some of the photos i took whilst away in France!
My facebook page is usually the first place projects or new products get posted so it's worth giving it a 'like' so you can see everything before it's published on here. 
If there are stamp sets you would like to see used in a card please let me know and if i have the set i will try and design something to show.
Happy crafting
