Create a lovely set of cards with Club Scrap's Magnolia Stamps and simple stamping methods.

As I walk around my neighborhood, flowers remind me that spring is right around the corner. The large magnolia blossoms are always the first to make an appearance this time of year.

Magnolia Stamps

Card 1

Magnolia Stamps #clubscrap #stamps #magnolia

Making stamped cards doesn't have to be complicated. Even simple techniques can yield striking results.

Stamp the largest blossom and small bud images with Red ink in the bottom right corner of a white panel.

Add the sentiment with Leaf ink in the top left corner.

Mat the artwork with a Green panel and adhere to a burgundy card base.

Card 2

Create a trio nesting panels for this slimline card design.

Stamp the left and right panels with flower bud images in India ink. Ink the open magnolia blossom, stamping once onto a piece of scrap paper before stamping the center panel. This "second generation" stamping allows the sentiment to stand out when stamped over the lighter image.

Add sequins to the sentiment panel for a coordinating pop of color. Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator works like a charm!

The inside of the card gets a special touch with a stamped panel and sentiment, layered with strips of paper from the collection.

Cards 3-6

Make a batch of four cards with a quad panel technique inspired by the Surf Shop card kit instructions.

To create the main panel, start by covering a piece of tissue paper with floral images stamped with India Ink.

Next, apply a thin layer of Bookbinding Glue to a 5.75x8.75" Pink panel.

Carefully place the stamped tissue paper onto the wet glue. Allow the tissue to buckle and crinkle in places to create texture. Set the panel aside to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Trim the excess tissue paper from the perimeter of the Pink panel.

Center the stamped artwork onto a 6x9" Burgundy Linen panel. Adhere the nested panels onto a white 8x10.5" panel at an angle. Trim into four 4x5.25 panels and adhere to Green card bases. (Be sure to check out the Surf Shop Card Kit instructions for more details on this fun card design.)

Stamp a simple sentiment with India ink in the open space on three cards.

For the fourth card, die cut an oval from a small Green panel. Stamp the sentiment with Spruce ink. (Set the oval frame aside to be used later.)

Embellish the oval with a simple ribbon bow.

Card 7

The green oval frame becomes a charming focal point on this card.

Add texture to a Burgundy Linen panel with a brick embossing folder. Lightly apply White Pigment ink to the de-bossed side of the panel with an Applicator Brush.

Nest the oval frame onto a white panel. Stamp the small magnolia blossom with India ink.

Add a stamped sentiment and green twine to complete the card.
