Big Bold Magnolias Blog Hop | Inkon3

August 29, 2019

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be joining the Inkon3 Big Bold Magnolias Blog Hop as a guest designer! If you are hopping along with us, you should have arrived from Kassi Hulet’s blog. I will be sharing a couple other Ink On Three projects over the next few weeks but for today I am focusing on their gorgeous new Big Bold Magnolias Stamp Set.

To start, I first heat embossed my flowers and leaves with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto some Ranger White Watercolor Paper. I then used some Zig Watercolor Brushes to color in each flower and leaf.

Zig Watercolor Brushes Used:

  • Purple Flowers: Lilac 083, Deep Violet 084
  • Pink Flowers: Almond Pink 200, Light Violet 081
  • Leaves: Olive Green 043, Mid Green 046
  • Flower Centers: Bright Yellow 052, Mid Brown 065

Once finished, I then used the coordinating Big Bold Magnolias Dies to cut them out. For my background, I mixed some Purple and White Watercolor and used a large watercolor brush to paint a rectangular pattern on my background.

I then masked off the edges and then splattered this watercolor wash with both some diluted White and Black Paint for some added interest. I then adhered my flowers with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape and added my sentiment which I had heat embossed with some more Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.

Come hop along with us!

Thanks so much for dropping by! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!

Wishing you all a lovely day!

    • Hello crafty friends! 🤗 We recently celebrated my daughter’s 7th birthday which was pig-themed. My daughter is obsessed with all things “pig” (except food 😂) so I created this festive #slimlinecard featuring the Pig Day #clearstamps set from @hellobluebird.stamps. I used some #distressoxides for my background and #copicsketchmarkers to color my images. (Thank you @oneallgirlstudio for your awesome color combo for the pigs!) More details can be found on my blog - link in profile!  #hellobluebird #hellobluebirdstamps #birthdaycards #handmadebirthdaycard #cardmaking
