Just Add Ink #454 - Magnificent Magnolia



Hello!! I have some fun new goodies to share with you today!! It feels like it's been a while since I've made a card. Last month I was working on a bunch of craft fair items and then this month, I haven't been crafting all too much. But I just received some products from the upcoming Stampin' Up! catalog that will be available in June. Since I went to OnStage at the beginning of the month, I was able to purchase some products earlier. This set is called Good Morning Magnolia and it is fantastic!! I am so in love with this set. It comes in a bundle with the new Magnolia Memory Dies. I used the large die to cut the flower out. And I have a another fun project I made with some of the other dies that I'll be sharing soon.

Anyway since I had all of these new goodies, I wanted to get my mojo going again so I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge this week. This week is a color combo.


These are some fun bright colors to work with. The flower was colored with the Pineapple Punch blends and for the leaves I used Granny Apple Green with a touch of Pineapple Punch on the ends. I used shimmer paper so in real life this flower has a wonderful sparkle.


After I die cut the flower, I layered it on Coastal Cabana card stock that was embossed with the Subtle Embossing folder. (Another favorite, which is also in the new catalog....YAY!) The sentiment was then stamped and embossed in white onto Blueberry Bushel card stock. I probably would not have chosen this color to stamp the sentiment on but that's why I love color challenges, to make me use color combos I don't normally use. And I actually love the addition of this bright color.


Another new item you might spy is that pretty lace trim under the sentiment. Swoon, it's sooo pretty! You will definitely need this too! I then finished off the card with some gold sequins for that extra bling.

I hope to brighten someone's day whoever I end up sending this card too!

And this card has gotten my creative juices flowing but that will have to wait as I'm off to the Bahamas in a few days for some sun and relaxation!! Hopefully when I get back, I'll be super relaxed and ready to jump back into crafts!

Thanks for stopping by!
