Planning for Magnolias

Hello Everyone!  Get excited - it's time for another Power Poppy release and there are FIVE clear stamp sets being previewed this week!!  Today we have a beautiful new set called Planning for Magnolias for you to have a peek at and hope you love it as much as we do!  :)

I'm sure anyone who follows the Power Poppy Blog will know of Marcy's love of all things plant/floral related and this passion comes from her Mom who had a real love of Magnolias.  I saw the picture below that Marcy had posted on her Instagram account that came from her Mom's garden - magnolias called 'Coral Lake' and I loved the pink centres and coral/peachy edged petals.  Aren't they beautiful?  They were the inspiration for my colour palette for today's card.

I've used a base of Blushing Bride, punched the bottoms with a border punch and layered with Chocolate chip and some Secret Garden DP.  Over this I've attached more Blushing Bride cut with Decorative Labels Eight die and around the layers added a wide white ribbon.  The large Magnolia image from Planning for Magnolias has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R00, R81, R83, R85, E43, E44, E49, G40, G43, G46, B0000, B000, B00) and cut with Labels Eight Dies.  I've stamped the sentiment, also from Planning for Magnolias and cut it out with Small Oval Nestabilities and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added several dots of Silver Crystal Drops to give the effect of pearls.

How lovely, Kathy! You really captured Marcy's sweet mama's magnolias perfectly! Your coloring is always breathtaking and this beautiful layout complete with punched edge, pretty papers, and ribbon and pearls really showcase that coloring and Marcy's incredible image to perfection! Sending hugs to you, sweet Kathy! :)

Oh my, Kathy, this is completely gorgeousness with your coloring to perfection of Marcy's mom's "Coral Lake" magnolia! The depth you've created is stunning, and I love your die selection along with the pearls. And even the DP behind it adds such beauty along with the black matting. And you've added a ribbon, the sentiment, and finished it off with the MS border punch. I love it all, and it's an exquisite card, sweet friend! Hugs to you!
