Blue Magnolias Just For You
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I’m still working my way through the gorgeous April 2023 Magnolia collection and couldn’t resist creating a blue monochromatic card!

The Backyard Wren, magnolia flowers and foliage were all die cut from white cardstck.  The foliage (leaves and stems) were colored with B32/34/37/39 Copic Sketch markers.  Ink blending with finger brushes was done to color the wren and magnolias.  Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink was used for the magnolias while Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean, Lost Shadow and Black Soot distress inks were used for the wren.


Stretched the Curved Cap Pinpoint die and partial die cut it to get the curve shape on both ends.  Heat embossed the sentiment from Poppy Stamps Birthday Blowout with gold embossing powder.  Assembled the card onto a white woodgrain A2 size panel, then added highlights with a white gel pen and clear shimmer on the magnolias for some sparkle to finish.


This card was inspired by this month’s For the Birds challenge ending at 11:59 pm EST on May 30… so there is still time to get your entry in.  That concludes my post.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.





Fabulous card, love all the dies used and the blue tones!
