Pink Magnolias

 

Art of Nature - Magnolia Card 019 copy

I just finished painting these precious pink magnolias (one of my favorite flowers). This card is for my very dear friend, Betsie. We met several years ago when we were about six months along, carrying our firstborns. Stephen and Katie were born within days of each other. We’ve remained steadfast friends through the years, it’s hard to believe Stephen and Katie are now 24. The design is from Hiskia Wittenaar’s book, Art of Nature. I hope Betsie likes it!

The card is made of regular parchment paper with a white parchment insert that was dorsed with a green pastel crayon from Pergamano’s Nature Colors Pastels. Using a mapping pen, I traced the border with Tinta white ink. The painting was done with Pintura acrylic paints with a Pergamano #2 Kolinsky paint brush. I perforated (shallow) around the borders with a 2-needle tool.

I used a small embossing ball to emboss the design around the borders. I used the fine stylus tool to emboss the border lines and small dots on the edge of the border. The embossing wheel tool was used to make the small flourishes coming out of the scrolls.  I used a hockey stick to lightly emboss the flowers. Once the embossing was complete, I perforated a second time (deep) and then did the cutting.

Baby 2 Bride

Graphic 45 & Parch Cards 005 copy

I haven’t done a baby card in ages and ages. Graphic 45 brought back its first set of papers for a limited time only, Baby 2 Bride is one I missed and I’m so happy Graphic 45 brought it back in a collector’s edition pack! Aren’t these dies adorable! They are so perfect for these papers. You can find them at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, they are dies from Marianne’s collection.

Each collector’s edition pack includes two each of 12 double-sided vintage papers (12 x 12), chipboard tags and cover-weight stickers. I used Core-dination’s colorcore signature Graphic 45 pastel paper pack to perfectly match the designer paper.

I used Petaloo’s Botanica coral minis to accentuate the flowers on the bib and shoes. The leaves were made with Mulberry paper and a small leaf die (I’m sorry I can’t remember which I die, I made up the leaves several months ago in a big batch). Distress Inks were used on the leaves.

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today, until next time .  .  .

Parchment craft is an addiction and a great way to release stress and anxiety, it’s very therapeutic for me. It’s challenging, yet soothing. After I finish a design I’m  thrilled with the card and completely in awe of the ladies that create these beautiful patterns. Today I’m sharing a design that Anneke Oostmeijer created and published in her book, Anneke’s Charming Creations.

This card is made of regular parchment paper with an insert of a pastel shade of parchment called shaded purple. Multiple techniques were used in the design including tracing, painting, embossing and cutting.
