Good Morning Magnolia for #PCC356

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my project for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.  The sketch for this week is a great one that's open to so many possibilities.  For my Card today I used products from the Magnolia Lane Suite.  Here's a look at my card.

I decided to do a little no line stampin' blend coloring on my card today.  Here's a look at the sketch that inspired my card today.  You can click on the image below to visit the Paper Craft Crew Website and see what the other design team members created this week, and if you want to play along you can do that there as well.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card with a Purple Posy card base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I stamped the small magnolia from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set around my card base in Purple Posy ink.  Yes, Purple Posy is officially out and able to be purchased.  The issue with the ink has been fixed and it's working great now.  Once I had that image stamped all out I stamped it on a scrap of Thick Whisper white cardstock so that I could do a little no line stampin' blend coloring.  
But, before I did my no line coloring I colored a piece of the Magnolia Lane Designer series paper with my Purple Posy Stampin' Blends.  This is a great way to alter your designer series paper to match your projects.  I used another pattern from the same pack of paper matted to a piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  I have another piece of Mossy Meadow behind that as well.  I also added a small strip of basic black between the card base and the designer series paper.  
To do my no line coloring I stamped the image in Purple Posy Ink.  But, to get the shade light enough I stamped it on a scrap paper and then onto my thick whisper white cardstock.  Even with Purple Posy being a super light color I still wanted it to be just a little lighter.  I started my coloring with the stem and leaves.  For that I used my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends in both light and dark.  For the flower I used Purple Posy Light and dark and Highland Heather Light and Dark.  The flower took the longest time to color.  The thing with no line coloring is that you have to color the image dark enough so that you have a clear divide between each petal.  Basically you have to have a clear difference between your shadows and highlights, maybe that will make it more understandable.  
To finish off my card I popped up the magnolia bloom using a Stampin' Dimensional, and added the sentiment strip and a few basic Rhinestones.  I hope that you have enjoyed my little card today, and that you will give it a try.  Thanks for dropping by I am happy that you did.  Just a little side note today kicked off the 24 Hour Stamp Sale over at my online store.  You will find a select section of stamps there.  The sale ends tonight at 11:59 Mountain Time.  
Happy Stampin'

Cuckoo For You Friendship Card Color Inspiration


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am kicking off a new bi-weekly series where I will be sharing with you how to find Color Inspiration for your projects.  I will be sharing with you different ways to find colors that inspire you and that look great together.  Some are probably ones that you would not think work well together and some you probably wouldn't have picked.  One thing I want to help you with is to think outside the norm when it comes to color combinations and putting them together.  Another reason I decided to do this new series was to share with you where you can find color inspiration for your projects.  I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to just this topic.  I love color and I know must of you that follow me do too, but you have a hard time finding just the right ones to use on your projects.  So I am hoping this little series will help you.  Here's a look at my card that I created today with the first Color Inspiration image.
I used the Cuckoo for You Bundle and created this no line Stampin' Bends Colored Card using my color inspiration picture that I will share with you shortly.  For the colors I used Real Red, Very Vanilla, Flirty Flamingo, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, and Gray Granite.  Now where did I find the inspiration for this color combination.  I actually found it on Pinterest but the actual image came from Design Seeds, one of my favorite places for seasonal color combinations.  Here's the image that inspired today's card.
This image had nothing to do with the products I wanted to use but I loved the color combinations.  And they were ones I would have never put together.  I start the process by searching for color combinations and when something catches my eye I save it on my Color Inspiration board.  Once I decided I am going to use that color combination then I have to figure out what colors I have that will match those colors.  In this case it was Real Red, Very Vanilla, Flirty Flamingo, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Gray Granite, and Blushing Bride.
As you can see the Stampin' Up! colors that I picked match the inspiration photo pretty darn good.  Must are an exact match but some are very close.  One of the things I do once I pick the color inspiration photo and figure out what I think are the matches.  I then start to pull all the matching cardstock and ink colors to see how they will look together and to start figuring out which ones I want to use.
Once that was done I then figured out what set I wanted to use.  In this case I knew I wanted to use Real Red and I had a piece of the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper (available September 4, 2019 for customers you can add it to your starter kit now) out from taking some pictures for tomorrows post; so I pulled the other colors and all the inks and the stamp set.  I knew I wanted to use the Real Red gingham piece from this set and thought it would compliment the Cuckoo Clock super well.  I don't know there's something very rustic and farmhouse feel about those two items together.  Well at least to me anyway.  At this point when I had picked out what I wanted to use it was time to start creating.
I stamped out the Cuckoo Clock images and stamped off using Smoky Slate ink to have a lighter color.  I knew I wanted to do a little no line coloring so with the inks I picked this was the best choice, I tired the other two grays that I picked but I wasn't in love with them.  Once that choice was made I colored everything in with my stampin' blends in my color choices.  I used the matching dies to cut it out.  I used Real Red as an accent color since I had the Real Red Gingham as the dominate background.  I added some matching ribbons and real red rhinestones to add a little bling.  I did heat emboss my sentiment on a little basic black and cut it apart.  The embossing powder is white but it looks more of a vanilla when embossed so that's why I used that.
I hope that this little bi-weekly series will help you as we walk through the process of finding color inspiration each time.  The above graphic is sized to be pinned on your own Pinterest board so please feel free to pin away.  If you need any of the supplies you can pick all the current items up in my online store now and the Holiday item will be available September 4th or you can add it to your $99 starter kit now along with another $143.50 in products until the end of the month when you join my team.
Happy Stampin'
