I am addicted I am to the new Good Morning Magnolia set from SU! I knew I liked it but I was worried that it be overdone and I would run out of fresh ideas for it and soon tire of it. NOT. I have three cards in this post that have fun ideas for the little magnolia bud.
On my first card, I made my bg by water coloring on a new stencil from Altenew. Then I spattered on some left over water color. Next, I took some white acrylic paint and painted on a few white circles in two of the corners using a bubble stencil from Altenew. I sponged the edges in Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) because I was going for a vintage look. Then I stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful You set and the flourish from the Good Morning Magnolia set (in Pacific Point).
On another sheet of paper, I stamped the lovely lady from Beautiful You and then six buds from Good Morning Magnolia. I water-colored the flowers a few pretty shades of blue. After some fussy cutting, I layered up all the flowers making a dress and an umbrella. I outlined all the flowers in some silver Stickles, and then added some punched flowers. This was for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com involving umbrellas and Shabby Chic. The card is to cheer up a sweet fellow stamper who is going through some very tough times.
I used the same Altenew striped stencil to make my next card. I used a different water-color color to make the background. I then stamped the script words from the SU! By the Tide set in Memento Black. I cut the panel up and sponged the edges with distress ink. I stamped the Good Morning Magnolia bud six times, water-colored them, then fussy cut them so I could tuck them in a little folded piece of paper torn from an old hymnal. The sentiment is from the Beautiful You set - I knew the friend who received this would love it - she has recently lost 50 pounds (Keto Diet) and she looks great.
This next card is a case of a THIS card done by a fellow stamper. The card is going to her as well - she is struggling through some very rough times. I water-colored the flowers lightly and added some very light sparkles (Stickles). A cool way to use these lovely flowers and it was a quick and easy card.
