An Organizational Love and a Good Morning Magnolia Project
This Kallax unit from Ikea is one of two and the smaller unit in my craft studio . I store my markers, sequins, sponge daubers, extra catalogs, small trimmers, and other items that I regularly use. The bins are from Target and are great to grab and take to my work station. I also store my crafting to go container from Thirty-One in a bottom cubby.
If you are anything like me, your craft room is already so full that space is an important commodity and used wisely. Due to the lack of open shelving space, I also have some past 3-D projects stored in one of the wire bins. Even though they are not displayed like I would like them to be, I can still see them.
On to one of my recent projects...
One place in which I find inspiration is Starbucks. Their gift cards are often unique with interesting color schemes.
I black heat embossed (146956) the largest floral image in the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle (151087) and added my pop of color in the background. Masking paper cut with various dies to create curved lines and a soft scallop were used along with a dotted Stencil I have in my stash.
I used a blending tool to create an ombre effect from light to dark in retired Pink Pirouette and Pacific Point Stampin' Ink (147098).
The simple Hello sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set (149298) and is embossed with Stampin' White Embossing Powder (109132) and punched out of Basic Black Cardstock (121045) with a 1" Circle Punch (119868).
Here I also used a stencil with a blending tool creating an ombre effect with Mint Macaron (147106) and Soft Sea Foam (147102) on a piece of cut down Very Vanilla Cardstock (144237), but added the large Magnolia floral image in Memento Black (132708) as a backdrop.
A smaller bud is used as the focal image along with a Black embossed (146956) sentiment from the Amazing Life Stamp Set (148750).
The Amazing Life Stamp Set is again an embossed featured in the above card with a thin band of Basic Black CardStock (121045) and an assortment of colored lines fashioned from an assortment of Stampin' Ink colors, which includes:
Poppy Parade (147050), Flirty Flamingo (147052), second generation stamping with Mango Melody (147093), Granny Apple Green (147095), and Old Olive (147090).
The Large Magnolia is the focal image once again on this card with a large cut circle stamped in soft stripes using Blushing Bride (147100), Flirty Flamingo (147052) , Mango Melody (147093), and Crushed Curry (147087).
A little texture was added using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (151775) and the 1/2" Circle Punch (119869) to crop the corners.
The Sentiment was embossed on a fishtail cut piece of Vellum (101856) and a simple little bow made from Linen Thread (104199) and sequins are added.
In addition, with all my cards, I use Thick Whisper White Cardstock (140272) for the folding card bases.
Lastly, this simple card is a 3-D project using the Balloon Bouquet Punch (140609), the Magnolia Memory Dies (149579), and the leaves from Wild Rose Dies (149547).
The black and white is carried again in this card using the Artisan Textures Stamp Set (151278) and a sentiment from Incredible Like You Stamp Set (148708).
Each card is inspired from various other projects that I would like to give credit where credit is due:
Stampin' Up! of course, but also the never ending beautiful floral images from Altenew, the Amazing Carissa Whiley with Sprinkled With Glitter, and The Stamp Market, who's color schemes knock my socks off!
