Magnolia-licious October Color Inspiration


Hello, Friends. I’m so glad you got a chance to stop by and see what I created for the Color Inspiration at Magnolia-licious Challenge. It’s my turn to choose the challenges for October so we want to see projects created with Red, Yellow and Brown. They make great autumn colors don’t you think? So I found this awesome photo to inspire you.
The design team has some spectacular inspiration for you HERE as well and we would love for you to join us.
If you follow along with us for the challenge you could have a chance to win a Special Surprise from Magnolia-licious. Diana has so many gorgeous Magnolia stamps, tons of dies, papers, and other goodies in the store. She also carries the Magnolia Ink Magazine which is one of the first places I go for inspiration. You can purchase a single issue or the entire subscription.
My card features the adorable “Autumn Tilda with Broom” from the Turning Leaves Collection. She is colored in Copics and I added a watercolor background for her. She has a bit of Gold Spica in her hair, Candy Cane Stickles on her scarf and Glossy Accents on her boots.
My DPs are from Bo Bunny’s Apple Cider collection matted on Bazzill cardstock. My Leaf doily is from Marianne Designs cut from The Paper Co. cardstock. I also cut a couple of Magnolia Doo Hickey Swirl die cuts for added interest for my flowers which are from Prima and WOC. The flowers were originally ivory and white so I sprayed them with Gold and Indian Corn Glimmer Mist to give them color and sparkle. The red one also got a coat of Candy Cane Stickles for extra sparkle. Then I topped flowers with metal Pinwheels from HOTP and a WOC rose. My acorn border was cut with my Cameo and I added some Distress Stickles to them for texture. The ribbon bow was created with my trusty Bow-Easy tool and topped with one of my flowers.
The inside of my card has a couple repeating elements from the front with blank space for any message or stamped sentiment. 

Supplies:
Stamps: Magnolia
Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs – Apple Cider, Bo Bunny Press
Flowers – WOC; Prima
Dies – Magnolia; Marianne Designs; Silhouette
Ribbon – Joann’s
Stickles - Ranger
Glimmer Mist - Tatered Angels

I’m entering this card in the following Challenges: 

Make It Monday – Linky Party, Anything Goes
 
I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the Magnolia-licious Challenge. Thanks for popping in to visit and I’ll see you tomorrow with another fun Magnolia card… 

Hugz,
