Magnolia Time Tutorial

Hello ladies! Well, I just could not resist this image from Stampin’ Up! I guess my background in horticulture has gotten the best of me. How could one resist this bold and beautiful image? The name of this stamp is “From the Garden” and can be had by any hostess with a $150.00 minimum order. Here is a list of supplies and how I made the card.


Mellow Moss CS

White CS

Close to Cocoa CS

Prints Pack Paper

Brown Staz On ink

Watercolor Wonder crayons from the Neutrals, Soft Subtles and Earth Elements packs.


Round Tab Punch, 1 3/8 inch circle punch and wrought iron punch.

Define your life stamp set, From the Garden stamp and Merci stamp set.

Stampin' dimensionals or scraps of rubber.

  1. Stamp the floral image on white card stock with brown Staz On ink.

  1. Use watercolor wonder crayons to lay down the color as follows.
    1. Chocolate Chip on stem.
    2. Sage Shadow, Garden Green and Old Olive on leaves.

    4. Very Vanilla to shadow the petals.

  1. Blend with an Aqua Painter.
  2. Cut out the image and adhere to Apricot Appeal prints pack paper that has been cut to 4 7/8 inches square.
  3. Cut a piece of Mellow Moss card stock to 5 3/8 inches by 10 6/8 inches and score down the center to make a square card which opens from the bottom.
  4. Punch the bottom two corners with the wrought iron corner punch. I really wish that Stampin’ Up still sold this punch. I use it on so many projects!
  5. Adhere the Apricot paper to the front of the card.
  6. Use the round tab punch to punch a tab of Close to Cocoa.
  7. Punch a 1 3/8 inch circle of prints pack Wild Wasabi.

  1. Cut the circle in half and trim each side a bit so that it fits the round tab punch as shown.
