Magnolia Madness Part II

Well I have had a good time with these Magnolia's. This on was really quick and easy because I used the Scor-pal on the SU card stock Pretty in Pink, I colored my image with Copic's and then stamped out TAC's Always Remember stamp set for accents.
This card is done with the SEI DSP Madeline I love this paper and I used the SU border punch on the edge SU ribbon and I was done.

Looks like I'm on a pink and brown kick with my cards today but you know what its my second favorite color combo. I used DSP The Paper Studio's Coco & Pink I used my Justrite stamps for this salutation added some SU ribbon, a felt flower and I was finished. Only a few more to go since I promised Sandy 20 Magnolia cards for her missionary friends.
Wow its not pink whats with this card well I had to shock you all somehow. I colored my image with Copic's, SU Jersy Shore DSP, the card stock is Mellow Moss by SU and Pumpkin Pie and I used SU Circle of Friendship stamp set for the circle salutation. The flower is made with SU felt flowers and a brad.
I know your thinking she sure does crank these cards out but I have a system to making cards and I'll share with you. I usually find my image or stamp and image then I go through my papers and match up 2-3 colors. I roughly cut 6 X 4 pieces of paper or use scraps and put them together in a plastic empty Stampin Up box. Later after dinner I usually sit with Mom and that's when I pull out an image with the card stock, pick my Copic pens to match and color. When its done I put the finished image and card stock into a manila envelope and it goes down to my studio to await putting it all together. Now I admit once that point comes its strictly free style I don't use patterns or sketches.
Ok I'm done babbling the snow has been a blessing for me because I have been hanging out in my Studio just playing all day. Mom checks in every so often and I come up to check on her but she mostly just sits on the couch all day long and watches TV (really she catnaps) till dinner time. It's been raining for the past day so this snow 4 inches has turned to heavy snow and ice. Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
God Bless,
