Magnolias for Kylie's Demonstrator Training June Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm participating in Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  I'm so excited to be part of this training program and happy to participate in my second Blog Hop with them! The purpose of the group is for the group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that are part of the share ideas and to learn from each help us in our Stampin' Up! Business.

Today you will "hop around the world" and check out the amazing projects created by these very talented demonstrators.  You are currently visiting Heather Cooper from British Columbia, Canada.  Please take some time to check out all of the blogs on the list below!

I'm using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set for my sample today. I've paired it up with some Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. Here it is:

  • On the card base of  Crumb Cake cardstock, I added a piece of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, a delicious striped pattern in Petal Pink.
  • On top of that I wanted a real kraft coloured background so I cut down one of the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Cards to get that panel to display the magnolia on.
  • Some Petal Pink 5/8" Organdy Striped Ribbon is added to the kraft panel before adhering it to the card base.
  • I used the Stamparatus to stamp the large magnolia image from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The Stamparatus is a real bonus with a large stamp like this, because if any area is not inked up evenly, or if some area gets unequal pressure, it's no problem to restamp the image to get the coverage you need. It was die cut using the Magnolia Memory dies. Using the same dies, some silver foil leaves were also die cut.
  • I used the Petal Pink Stampin' Blends Combo and the Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends Combo alcohol markers to colour in the image. My technique is to use the dark shade marker to colour in the shaded areas of the image and the light shade marker to blend over the dark marker areas and out into the lighter areas. For the leaves, that filled up the whole area, but for the petals I left some white. The center was the Daffodil Delight Combo.
  • The sentiment is also from the Good Morning Magnolia set and was die cut using the double label dies from the Frosted Bouquet Dies.
  • The flower had the silver leaves attached to it using glue dots and the whole thing added to the card front using dimensionals.
