paper pieced magnolias

Here is another card using the embossed-pounded flowers technique. I also used the paper piecing technique on the magnolias, for a rerun of Technique Lover's Challenge given by Joan today.. When getting the elements ready for this card, I stamped the sentiment from inspired stamps on a triangle shaped scrap of cardstock. I had intended to cut it and make it rectangle. As I placed it down on the base to reach for my scissors, I thought it looked really neat on the triangle. So I left it like it wanted to be. I am not one to argue with my cardstock when it wants to be a certain way. I added want2scrap bling to finish the card off. I really like how this card turned out. I am hoping to go outside later today to go find some more weeds.I am having fun with this technique, because, like ink spray smash, my favorite technique, you get a unique look every time you do it. No two can look exactly alike even if you tried


  1. wow, so pretty! can be put in a frame.

  2. this is beautiful MariLynn - I do enjoy seeing what you do with your talents, and the stitching completes it. I am so glad I am not the only one whose card stock talks to them :-).

  3. Marilynn: This is just gorgeous. It really is elegant enough to be put in a frame and saved. Thanks so much for sharing it with us in this week's challengea at Word Art Wednesday. We greatly appreciate your support!
