Magnolia Bloom


Tuesday while in Winston every where I looked the Magnolia's trees were full of their beautiful blooms. So that inspired this card. I am also entering it on StampTV's Inspriation Challenge that Brenda is having. I love Magnolia's. Can't grow them here very good because of the temps getting so cold in the winter, but I enjoy them when I go south. I started out using Gina K. 120 white as the base. Then I used a piece of white SU which I dry embossed. Attached that, I had stamped the Magnolia 3 times and colored all of them alike. I got that idea from Selma, anyway cut them out and popped them up. The green and pink are from SU also which is cut out using what else but nestablities. Gotta love those! I used some shimmering paints I got last year while at the Charlotte Scrapbook show. I used a water brush and then just painted it. The yellow is Stickles. I attached 4 yellow gems I won awhile back from Vicki D's challenge on, oops, forget which site, sorry. It's that age thing again. The stamp is from All Night Media. That's it in a nut shell. Thanks for dropping by and looking. Oh yeah, by the way I love my new hearing aids, but Bandit isn't a hero yet LOL. Have a great day and Patti be good LOL.

What a gorgeous card Olga. Magnolias are so pretty. We used to have them in Vancouver but not up here in the mountains.

WOW...this is GORGEOUS! Love the simplicity and your choice of colors cut from the Nestibilities, they really set the flower off very nicely. A true work of art!

Thanks for your comment Olga! This card reminds me of the Magnolia flowers we have out in the front yard. Just last week I was out there taking pictures of them. Beautiful embossing and design!
