Good Morning Magnolia for FabFri165

It’s nearly impossible to NOT reach for the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle at every opportunity. The mix of beautiful flowers and flowing sentiments are perfect for so many cards. While I’ve stamped this oversized magnolia flower in the background of a card, today is the first time I’ve made it front-and-center. I love it! Here’s my card for the FabFriday sketch challenge that goes live today:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Magnolias. As a Southern boy, I’ve grown up around magnolia trees – although it’s been MANY years, I’ve climbed the branches of many magnolias – they grow low and wide with lots of strong branches in the center. 🙂 I adore this suite – so many incredible elements to the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle. Here’s a look:Good Morning Magnolia Bundle, Stampin' Up! 151087You don’t have to stop there, though! There’s an entire suite of products that beautifully coordinate with this bundle.

  • Following the sketch. The layout of my card was inspired by the FabFriday sketch that goes live today – albeit a loose interpretation. The magnolia cutout is the “rectangle” in the sketch, and the thin, black line is the scalloped edge. Here’s a closer look: Good Morning Magnolia Bundle, Tropical Chic, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingAfter I stamped the flower and leaves with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, I colored the image with a touch of Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. I added a 1/4″ strip of Basic Black cardstock and “thanks” from Tropical Chic stamp set (I masked the rest of the sentiment with tape so that only “thanks” would make its way onto my card.
  • Sweet, Dramatic Color Combination. I didn’t stray too far from the colors on the catalog pages that showcase the Magnolia Lane Suite. Petal Pink is a perfect tone for this set because magnolias are white – and Petal Pink adds a lovely tone to the flower without completely coloring it. If you like this combination of Petal Pink, Crumb Cake and Basic Black, please save this:Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, Basic Black
