Stampin’ Up! Red Magnolia Christmas for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog to see the great projects they are sharing with you.  My card features the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set and Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  We are all working with a sketch challenge this week – here’s my card:

And here is the sketch we are all using for inspiration:

I tried coloring the blooms in the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, as I have seen a few projects with colored blooms and liked them.  Use the brush tip of a Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends marker to add color to the flower petals – so easy and such striking results!  Cut the panel to size and adhere to a Gold Foil mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The DSP is centered on the foil panel top to bottom, even with the left edge with the mat showing along the right side.  Then use Liquid Glue to adhere the completed layer to the card front centered top to bottom, even with the left edge.

Use StazOn Jet Black ink to stamp the sentiment from the Rustic Retreat stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut the sentiment layer with a die from the Layering Circles Dies set.  Adhere the sentiment to a circle mat of Basic Black, then adhere the layer to a Gold Foil scalloped circle mat cut with the same dies.

Flag the ends of a length of 3/8″ Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon.  Adhere to the card front arranged as shown with Mini Glue Dots.  The sentiment piece is adhered in place over the ribbon embellishment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a die from the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut a single bloom from a panel of Magnolia Lane DSP.  Color the flower petals with a Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends marker, then adhere it to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock before adhering the panel to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.
