Using a Watercolor Background with Magnolia Blooms

Hello Stampers ~ today I am Using a Watercolor Background with Magnolia Blooms for my creation.

Well the room is cleaned up and ready for my guest.  I had to figure out how to attach my letter to my wreath and as soon as I get that figured out it will be completed.  I am exploring using Crystal Effects to glue a pipe cleaner to the back but not sure how that will hold up with the heat.  If that doesn’t work I may need to go to the hardware store and see what they recommend.  All my errands were run and I found out my cushions for my bench seats were supposed to be finished yesterday.  I am hoping to pick them up today.  I am so excited that they are finally finished.  I was a little worried since I could not get in touch with them.  I did not get into my studio for any creating but that is ok.  I will take some time today and work on the rest of the cards needed for this week.  I am also going to clean out my garage.  Since my car is being washed and waxed it will be a perfect time to pull everything out and and clean up out and organize it.  I am hoping that will only take a few hours and then I can work in the house a little.  I would like to dust so that tomorrow I can dust mop.  Sounds like another busy day for me!

We have an Inspiration Challenge for this time at Hand Stamped Sentiments Paper Crafting Challenges.










I decided to use one of the papers I created on my play date.  I chose to use the one that had a tissue paper that was colored with Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo.  I used the piece for the circle element on the sketch.  I pulled out the Layering Circles dies and using the second largest scallop die I cut out a section of the card stock that had an interesting pattern.  I thought it would be good to use the Magnolia Blooms stamp set and Magnolia Lane designer series paper.  I cut a piece of the green leaf paper that was 2″ x 4″.  To determine where to add my circle, I set the designer series paper on the Whisper White panel and then slipped the circle that had glue on the back underneath and attached it.  The designer series paper was then added on top.  This panel was then glued to a Mossy Meadow card base.  To address the tag, I pulled out the Scallop Tag Topper punch and using a piece of 2″ x 3″ I punched the top.  The flower was stamped on the tag with a second generation stamping using Memento Tuxedo Black.  To color it in I used ink in the lid and a blender pen with Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, and Pear Pizzazz, and Mossy Meadow.  The ribbon is some retired Sale-a-bration silver along with some Blushing Bride baker’s twine.  The tag was then added to the card base using dimensionals.  Here is the completed Using a Watercolor Background with Magnolia Blooms creation.

  1. Good morning Robbie,
    I really liked the melon mambo, and blushing bride along with the mossy meadow, pear pizzazz combination. That design and color combination could be used for so many occasions. I struggle with color combinations, but lately I have been getting some great ideas from your designs.
    Thank you for your time and sharing.
