Magnolia Mother of Pearl Card

Magnolia Mother of Pearl Card

Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do with a new product. Searching the web and then coming up short…I did this with the Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper. After searching, I decided to go back to one of my favorite cards made with basic white cardstock and blending brushes.


Other ways I have found for using this paper, as a background, whether that is using die cuts or as a filler – circle, Square, Rainbow! You can also stamp on it but use your Stazon ink and heat set. Let it sit for a few minutes afterward.


Here is my card and tutorial…ENJOY!





Highland Heather c/s – 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”

A scrap of Gorgeous Grape

Gorgeous Grape – 4” x 5 ¼”

Basic White – 3 ¾” x 5”


Stamp set:

Timeless Tulips

Tulip Fields



Gorgeous Grape

Coastal Cabana

Versa Mark



Mother of Pearl Specialty Paper 4” x 5 ¼”

Blending Brushes

Pastel Pearls

Take your Pick Tool

Magnolia Embossing Folder

Meadow Dies


White embossing powder

Heat gun

Mono Liquid glue


Let’s get started:


· Take our Highland Heather base and fold it in half

· Put your Mother of Pearl in the Magnolia Embossing Folder and run it through the Stampin Cut and Embossing machine



· Ink the Blending brushes, stamp off or rub some of the ink off before using the Gorgeous Grape on the flower and the Coastal Cabana on the leaves and around the flower. You will have to heat set the ink.

· Adhere to the Highland Heather card base. I used mono liquid glue

· On a scrap of Gorgeous Grape, stamp the sentiment in Versa Mark and add White Embossing powder on top. Tap off the extra powder and heat set it

· Take the Meadow Dies and put it around the sentiment. Run it through the Stampin Cut and Embossing machine

· Add 3 Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and place it in the middle of the card

· Add three Pastel Pearls to the card…I used the dark purple pearls

· On the inside of the card, add the Gorgeous Grape to Highland Heather. Stamp the border flowers in Coastal Cabana at the bottom of the card. Adhere it to the Gorgeous Grape c/s.

· Emboss the flap of the envelope with the Magnolia Embossing Folder. Without reinking, your blending brushes, use the ink from them to color the Magnolia flower

· Voila, you are done!

The Mother of Pearl and the Magnolia Embossing Folder is retiring.   Don't wait, contact me to place an order or go to my online store and order these supplies ASAP!

New Horizon Card

New Horizon Card


I love the New Horizon Suite of products (157782) found on pages 42 and 43 of the new January – June mini catalog! I was hooked by the Horizon dies (157778), especially the fence dies. But the real clincher is the New Horizons 6” x 6” designer series papers (157768)! They make a perfect background for any scene and can create a stunning card just by themselves. This card uses several of the products from this suite.



Stamp set – On the Horizon (157770)

Ink – Evening Evergreen Classic Stampin’ Pad (155576)

Paper including cutting dimensions –

            Soft Sea Foam Cardstock [CS](146988) 8 ½” x 5 ½” scored and folded at 4 ¼”, 2” x 1”

            Sahara Sand Cardstock [CS] (121043) scraps

            New Horizons 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper [DSP] (157768) below is the sheet used for                     the card design as pictured - one Sheet

Accessories –

Horizon Dies (157778) – fences

Stitched Rectangles Dies (151820) second and third from inside of the large set

1/8” Cotton Ribbon Combo Pack (158140) Petal Pink Color

Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755)

Stampin’ Seal (152813)

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (149653) or Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine




1. Place the small of the stitched rectangle dies inside the larger one on a piece of Sahara Sand CS and run through the die-cutting machine to make the frame.


2. Cut another piece of Sahara Sand CS with the two fence dies. On the longer piece cut off two slats.


3. Place the larger stitched rectangle die on the DSP positioning the line between the green and the pink at about the bottom third or fourth of the die. Cut with the die-cutting machine.


4. Stamp the trees off to the left side of the rectangle with Evening Evergreen ink and the birds with Basic Gray ink. With liquid glue adhere this DSP piece to the Sahara Sand frame.


5. Adhere the frame to the card front with Seal.


6. Use multipurpose liquid glue to adhere to the fences as shown.


7. Stamp the greeting on the 2” x 1” piece of Soft Sea Foam with Evening Evergreen ink.


8. Apply a couple of strips of Seal to the back of the greeting and arrange the ribbon as shown then apply the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
