What Will You Stamp? Guest Designer - Good Morning Magnolia #WWYS225

A couple of weeks ago I submitted a project for the What Will You Stamp? Challenge #222. My entry was chosen as the winner and I was invited to be their guest designer for this week's challenge #WWYS225. The stamp set we are using to create this week is the fabulous new double stamp set Good Morning Magnolia which has beautiful images and a variety of sentiments making it a very versatile set.

Good Morning Magnolia is part of the Magnolia Lane Suite which has matching dies, gorgeous patterned paper, embossing folder, ribbon and Memories & More cards for scrapbooking. With such an array of products, I was stuck for choice when deciding what to create.
I have chosen to make a card using stamped images and die cuts.

I used Whisper White Thick  cardstock for my card base. I cut the front right hand edge with the scalloped die and then stamped the scalloped image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.
I also stamped and heat embossed the small magnolia images in gold.
Next I die cut the magnolias and then die cut two more magnolia shapes out of gold foil using the same dies. I fussy cut the white edging from the magnolias and then adhered them to the gold foil shapes to give the edge more definition and structure.

The leaves and pink silhouette were cut with dies from the Magnolia Memory set and the Vellum circle behind the flowers was cut using the Layering Circles dies. These elements and one of the magnolias were adhered using Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid glue. The second magnolia was raised with Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock, then cut using the Timeless Label Punch and adhered to the card front with Dimensionals.
To finish the card I added a few Petal Pink adhesive-backed sequins.

Colour Inkspiration Challenge #CI57

Colour Inkspiration is a twice monthly Facebook-based colour challenge. You don't have to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator or have a blog - anyone who is on Facebook can join in.
Here's how the challenges work -
The Colour Inkspiration design team is made up of a group of very talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators who match up Stampin' Up! colours to photos chosen from Pinterest to create a colour palette which is to be used to create a project.
Every 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month a new colour palette is uploaded and the Design Team provide inspiration with a blog hop.
During a 12 day period you can upload your own creations to the Facebook page using the colour palette provided.
Challenge winners are given the opportunity to join the Design Team Blog Hop for a future challenge.

This is the inspiration photo and colour palette for #CI57. As well as the chosen colour combination of Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green, we are allowed to add Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Metallics.

I used the First Frost stamp set and dies which were still lying on my craft table from a previous project and which happen to be one of my favourites.
The background which I'm calling 'Blends Colourwash' is a technique which I saw a couple of days ago being demonstrated by a Stampin' Up concept designer. I thought it looked cool so decided to try it myself. You can see the demonstration here.

I used Thick Whisper White cardstock 21 x 14.85 cms scored at 10.5 cms for my card base. I layered this with a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock 10.5 x 14.25 cms and then a piece of Whisper White cardstock 9.5 x 13.85 cms which I dry embossed with the Subtle 3D folder.
I then took a piece of Whisper White cardstock 8 x 12.35 cms and 'swooshed' from side to side with my Blends in the challenge colours to form the background colourwash.
I then stamped and die cut various images from the First Frost stamp set and arranged them over my background. I adhered these with wet glue and Dimensionals and intertwined them with gold metallic thread.
I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on Basic Black cardstock which I then fussy cut and adhered with wet glue.
Lastly,I adhered the panel to the dry embossed layer using Dimensionals.
