April 2024 NC Demos Blog Hop

Welcome to the NC Demos Blog Hop we are here the last Sunday of each month and are so happy you are able to join us this evening.  This month's theme is "Online Exclusives" .  Several times a year Stampin' Up puts a number of stamp set, paper, dies etc. online only and these are available while supplies last.  It is a nice little something for us between catalogues and is available only in the online store.  

One of the stamp sets and dies available right now is the Magnolia Mood just love this stamp set and dies.  My next door neighbor has a gorgeous Magnolia tree and I just love the blooms in May and June and their sent fills the air.  Heaven!  So I will be using this set this evening along with a few other items from this exclusive line.

Base of my card is Crumb Cake cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.

I then took a piece of Crumb Cake 5 1/4 x 4 1/4 and ran it through the Cut and Emboss machine using the Online Exclusives three basic folders.  I used the one with all the lines.  When done I cut off a strip 1/4 x 5 piece, this tiny strip I used on the inside adding it to a piece of Basic White cut 5 x 3 1/2 I placed it on the left side about a 1/4 inch from the edge.  

I then took a piece of Petal Pink and stamped the flower in Crumb Cake and then die cut it out.  Before adding it to  the card I colored the flower with Wink of Stella which is not showing up in the picture but it makes the card sparkle.

I also took a scrap piece of Petal Pink and stamped my sentiment in Crumb Cake cut it out and added all the piece to the card with dimensionals.  To finish the card I added 3 Petal Pink adhesive backed swirl dots, and my card was finished.  I love the Online Exclusives and look forward to more of them coming out in July.

Thanks you so much for stopping by this evening.  Make sure that you check out all the other blogs in this hop.  We have some really talented people in the group who will amaze you.

Until next month be safe and stamp on.

I do love the combination of Petal Pink and Crumb Cake. It's not one I would think of but works so well. Love the Magnolia Mood bundle!

Very nice card, Tina. I have this set but haven't used it yet. I need to crack it open and play around with it. I love your color combo as well.
