Inspired by All the Little Things #12

IMG_0072


Happy Spring! It's Saturday and time for this week's new inspiration over at Inspired by All the Little Things! It is my week as your hostess hostess and I chose this beautiful Magnolia bloom as the inspiration for the challenge. In my part of the world Magnolia's are usually the one of the first flowering trees to bloom in the Spring! My Guest this week is the fabulous Lynn Mangan!




I used the Essential by Ellen Mondo Magnolia stamps and dies for my card. I stamped the bloom three times using VersaMark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder on vellum. Then I used both the large and small dies to cut out 1 large and two small blooms. I used Dusty Concord Distress Ink to sponge the back of 1 large and 1 small bloom and I used Crushed Olive Distress Ink to sponge the back of the second small bloom. From the green I fussy cut two petals which I used as leaves. I adhered my magnolia using foam tape for dimension and a bit of tape runner on the leaves. The sentiment, from the same set, was stamped with VersaFine ink.

Hop over to the Inspired by blog to see the beautiful card created by Lynn and the creations from our Challenge Team.

I am also submitting this to the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge: Make it Girlie!



Hope to see you play along, have a fabulous weekend!

Before I saw your stunning inspiration piece, I knew that if I entered this challenge, I would be die cutting vellum and coloring it in. That is the first thing I thought of when I saw the photo. I LOVE your beautiful flower that you created with the stamps and your use of color. Really pretty card.
