Different Looks of Build-A-Flower: Magnolia + Giveaway

by Erum Tasneem

Hello everyone! Erum here today and I have quite a few cards to share with you featuring the Build-A-Flower: Magnolia Stamp Set. I love Magnolia flowers, they are fun to colour.

Actually, the reason I made so many cards is because I wanted to show you different colouring techniques on one image. In addition to this, I will also be covering different embossing powders and showing you how they give the same image such variation. Therefore I kept my layout almost same for all my cards so there is little distraction and the image has all your attention.

Also, every image I coloured/stamped , it was die cut using the coordinating die. All sentiments used are from the same stamp set.

My cards today will show you the Build-A-Flower: Magnolia Stamp Set in eight different looks. However, since there are a lot of photos to go through, I will keep the description short.

First up, no-line pencil colouring.

I made a light colour wash panel for some of my cards. Here I used Prismacolors to colour my image. I stamped the image using Antique Linen distress ink.

Next, some no-line water colouring.

I have used distress stains to watercolour this image. Even though I didn’t need to add the details on this image to make it look different but I wanted to show you that you can add some specks or lines/strokes to change the look of the petals.

Next, I have used Artist markers to colour my image.

Here I stamped the layering stamps except for the outline stamp using Peach Perfect, Cotton Candy and Rouge Crisp Inks on Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock . I then went in with my colour pencils to add a few details. My front panel is cut from Spicy Yogurt cardstock.

From here on my cards feature different Alenew Crisp Embossing Powders.

First, Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.

Hello Erum! I absolutely love your techniques and colors. I recently purchased this stamp set and have practiced using it. I am so happy seeing your post, with all your time and creativeness. I need to be inspired to create and you certainly have excelled with all these ideas. I missed the initial “no line” blogs and am not certain how to proceed with that method. Thanks, again! I would love to personally have one of your cards! Lona

I live next to a street called Magnolia Avenue, the street is 5 miles long and there are Magnolia Trees planted down the entire street. They are all bloomed and it is so beautiful, I love them. I also love the samples you have shared, they are amazing and have inspired me to definitely want this detailed and beautiful stamp set.

Erum, I wish that I could comment on each of your beautiful cards but you would stop reading the comment because it would be so very long as I lift out the beauty of each one. Your exploration of the techniques is exceptional. What a delight! And what a challenge for the rest of us to try to meet. It is such a good idea to stick with one stamp and then explore the possibilities. This is such a wonderful way to grow ones imagination Thank you for your gift and your inspiration.
