Mini Magnolia Blooms for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - July 2019

Mini Magnolia Blooms for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - July 2019 | Sneak Peek of the mini Magnolia Bloom cards | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie

Southerners love magnolias... and I love both!  Being a Georgia Peach that's been transplanted in Buckeye/Wolverine border battle country, I jump at every opportunity I can get to show my Southern pride!  We do not see many magnolias in this part of the country, but we definitely see lots of it in decor.  So for today's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop, it is my intention to inspire you to create some mini Magnolia Blooms cards to share with family, friends, or complete strangers, if you so choose.  There's nothing like spreading a little sunshine, right?

But first, let me tell you how wonderful it is to be a part of Kylie's Demonstrator Training Support Program.  This group provides such an invaluable amount of training which helps demonstrators in this group with their Stampin' Up!® businesses.  We receive training not only from Kylie, but her amazing guest speakers - many of whom are top global Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators - and the members themselves.  There is nothing like being inspired to do great things!

And now, let's get on with today's cards!  These cards were inspired by last month's Paper Pumpkin kit and a Good Morning Magnolia card by Emma Goddard.  Two great inspirations meshed together to create this adorable ensemble of cards using the Magnolia Blooms stamp set featured in the 2019-2020 Beginner Brochure.  And if you're new to stamping and would like to receive one of these Beginner Brochures from me, please contact me!

The image and sentiment was stamped on Whisper White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The coloring was done with So Saffron, Petal Pink and Old Olive Blends Markers.

The Whisper White cardstock was cut to 3" x 8-7/8" (scored at 3" and 6") and tri-folded to fit in the 3" x 3" Whisper White envelopes.  Pencil marks were made at 1" marks to align the magnolia bloom.  Once colored, the magnolia was partially fussy cut.

The inside contains two writing areas for short messages.
The coloring of the Blends bleeds through the Whisper White cardstock 
which adds a bit of color to the inside.

And you mustn't forget to stamp the envelopes!  TIP:  A scrap piece of paper was inserted into the corner while using the Blends to prevent bleeding to the reverse sides.
