Good evening and welcome to the NC Demos April Blog Hop!  We are SO glad you are here!

If I am your first stop, be sure to hop all the way around to see the awesome projects!  My friend, Laurie Meier, made something fantastic that you won’t want to miss!

For April we are taking the Blog Hop online! Our challenge was to feature products from the Online Exclusives. There are SO many new and carryover products to be found!  If you don’t know how to find them, CLICK HERE and get ready to shop!  Use my current hostess code TZVZRNFA and get a sursie from me!

Magnolias are one of my favorite flowers and the Magnolia Mood Bundle was a must have for me!  I thought about a lot of ways to use it, but after attending the NC Demos Quarterly Meeting in New Bern earlier this month, I knew exactly what to do!  We made this darling fun fold card that I thought was so sweet and was perfect to show off the lovely magnolia stamps and dies.  I love have this bundle paired so nicely with things carryover products like the Gold Foil Sheets, Petal Pink & Pretty Peacock Foiled Gems and the Deckled Circles Dies (also an Online Exclusive) as well as new items from the 204-2025 Annual Catalog like the Country Lace DSP, the Petal Pink & White 1/4 Diagonal Trim Combo Pack and my new favorite color, Basic Beige!

Here are all the measurements and details so you can make your own version of this card.  Once you cut and die cut all the pieces it goes together very quickly!

  • Basic White Thick  5 x 5 1/2 and scored at 2 1/2
  • Basic White scraps for stamping and die cutting
  • Country Lace DSP 2 1/4 x 5 1/4
  • Gold Foil Sheets 3 1/4 x 3 1/4
  • Petal Pink Ribbon 5 inches

After cutting and die cutting my cardstock and DSP, I used Blending Brushes with Petal Pink and Basic Beige ink to color the magnolias and leaves.  I stamp the Happy Birthday in Petal ink and then tore the edges and added a little more ink to the edges, again using a Blending Brush.

Next, I deconstructed the Petal Pink Ribbon.  I am obsessed with this!  I love taking the ribbon and turning into fibers that can be used in such fun and unique ways!  Note, that is is always easier to pull the threads apart form one end.  Who know why?  So, don’t get frustrated if the fibers don’t come apart immediately.  Just try doing it from the other end.

After deconstructing the ribbon, I added it to the back of the Happy Birthday piece using Tear & Tape.

Now that all the pieces were created, I assembled the card.  The DSP is attached with Multipurpose Glue.  Next, I added the Gold Foil Circle using Tear & Tape.  The magnolia pieces were attached next with Mini Dimensionals, followed by the Happy Birthday.  I finished off the card by add the Petal Pink Gold Foiled Gems.

Did I mention that this card will be a part of my Fun & Fancy Card Camp in May?  Well, it will!  I can’t want to make it along with other Magnolia Mood samples with my stamping friends!

Thank you for letting me share some of the Online Exclusives products as well as some goodies from the new Annual Catalog that goes live on Tuesday!  Please contact me if you have questions or want to add any of these items to your personal crafting stash.  I would love to help you!

Now, come and let’s hop over to see the great project Tina Lesson is sharing this month!

    I really liked this fold from the New Bern Quarterly as well, Tracie. And the magnolia set is perfect for it! I’ll definitely be giving this one a try.
