When Is A Magnolia Not A Magnolia?

... when it is purple, I guess! ;) Hello there, today I have a card to share using the Magnolia Moments stamp set from Clearly Besotted, which is a stamp layering set. I do usually gravitate towards outline images as I love to colour, but these stamp sets are so easy to line up and I love the added details on these. They also make for quick and easy cards.

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamped the bottom layer of the magnolia petals first. I used my Mini MISTI to stamp everything and it helped a lot. I stamped both of the flowers first. I used Altenew's Soft Lilac for the bottom layer and then Deep Iris for the second. I stamped the stamens with Midnight Violet. These were then masked off and the branch piece stamped. I used PTI Kraft for the branch portion and Altenew's Frayed Leaf for the leaves. The second layer for the leaves was stamped with Altenew's Forest Glades. The masks were then removed.
I took the MFT Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame Dies and cut the panel out with it, using the centre portion for my images. I then cut three of the frames from white cardstock. I added the image panel on to a white card base with tape runner and then stacked the frames up around it (so that they are three in height). I took the sentiment from the Tiny Type set and stamped this on to a strip of black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few PPP Sparkling Clear Confetti and then Aqua Shimmer pen to the stamens.

As you can see, I used a bit of artistic licence with the colour of the magnolias. I thought they would look nice in purples, even if that is not their natural colour. I apologise for the grey tint in the photos but it so dark here. I am so looking forward to getting closer to spring/summer and getting some better lighting! Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Somewhere out there is a purple magnolia, I bet you! I love the way it just hangs down from the top of the card, almost like you’re looking out of the window. Beautiful! Xx

  2. Simple but stunning, I love it!
