Marvellous Magnolias

I'm sharing some of the cards I made for the August show on Hochanda which featured the Happy Flower's Day stamp set. This set contains a lovely selection of flowers, butterfly, sentiments and dictionary definitions.

I did a few cards featuring the Magnolia stamp and did different techniques for each of them.

My first card, I stamped and embossed onto Kraft card and used thin bleach to lighten the card, added a sentiment and a pretty punch down the side.

 For my second card I stamped and used water colours and a sentiment from Birthday Words

For my third card I stamped the Magnolia and then masked it off and stamped again.

For the last card I stamped the image onto some card 3 times and used two of the images to decoupage the Magnolia.

Also on the stamp set are the Snake's Head Fritillary and a butterfly. I have used them here with words from Artistic Expressions in the background.

Thank you for looking

  1. Wow all such beautiful cards xx

  2. These two flower images are beautifully designed and have been used in lots of interesting ways here Sandra, with the lovely look of the bleached out flower on kraft, and then the pretty watery background with the addition of the lovely flourish and some small spatters, and then with lots of dimension by decoupaging it, ad then lastly the fritillary and butterfly which look great coloured in pink and with the words in the background which go so well. x

  3. Beautiful selection of cards, Kate x
