Stampers Anonymous June Blog Hop


Woo hoo - it's time for another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! I have had to miss the last few so I am happy to be back! 

This month's challenge was to use three of the new 2019-2021 In Colours - Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose. I am loving all of these colours and could not wait to get creating. 


But then I stopped in my tracks for a bit as I was unsure where to start as I have all these new stamp sets. Which one should I choose? It's like picking a favourite child! 

In the end the Magnolia won out. I was keen to try it in non traditional colours. I was also keen to try out my new blends so it was a win-win. 


I stamped the magnolias in memento ink on the whisper white cardstock then added colour with the light and dark blends. I used Rococo Rose for the blooms and light Old Olive and Light Pretty Peacock for the leaves. I framed the flowers with the dark Seaside Spray blends. As always for me it seems, there is a splash of ink of stella for good measure too! 


I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and added dimensionals to lift it. The sentiment comes from Magnolia Blooms stamp set.  

I mounted the whisper white onto a thin Pretty Peacock border then to a base card of Seaside Spray. 

Hope you like it too!
