The Stampin’ UP! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set is one of my very favorite stamp sets in the new 2019/2020 Stampin’ UP! catalog.
Have you ever wondered how to color a magnolia?
I had never given it a single thought, until this gorgeous stamp set came along.
Today’s card was created for my friends Tina & Amy.
Remember I am celebrating women the month of April and I didn’t want to leave these two ladies off my list.
You’ll have to watch the video to hear the story about these two ladies and how they helped me during a pretty terrible time in my life.
In my video I mention that if you are in a situation where you are being mistreated please get out of it. If you need help doing so I found this hotline as a resource for you: 800-799-3224
The coloring for this card came together beautifully. I was so happy with the outcome and am anxious to color it again and see if I can get a little different look.
I will make sure to share my other cards using the Stampin’ UP! Good Morning Magnolia on my social media. Make sure you’re following me there… INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE, FACEBOOK CLICK HERE.
TIPS & INSTRUCTIONS:
+ Start with the dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends in the areas that you want the darkest. The shadow areas.
+ Blend the color out with the light Flirty Flamingo blend marker.
+ Make sure to leave the ends of your petals white.
+ Use the Petal Pink blends to create even more shading going out towards the end of the petal but being sure to leave the white at the very end

I loved your story. I think that there are many young girls in this situation(including myself at one time) that just need a friend to help us out of the toxic relationship! Thanks for showing me how to make this beautiful card and being authentic enough to share your story. Hugs.
I know – it’s so sad. If we all start talking about it and sharing our stories maybe it will help someone else NOT go down that road or realize that when they are in that situation they need to get OUT!

May God bless Tina’s and the Amy’s of this world because we truly need them. They are special angels that are sent our way to help us journey where we belong!
Stay blessed always, my prayers to all three of you! Big hugs! XXXOOO

Thank you Wendy for showing how to color the beautiful magnolia flower. I just got my stamp set/bundle and can’t wait to make a card with it.
Also, thank you for sharing your story. I am sure it will inspire someone to leave a bad relationship.

Love your card, and especially your story, as I was in a verbal/emotional relationship too, in my early 20’s, and I thank my Aunt for helping me feel better about myself and I got out and few yrs later, married the love of my life! So I know how you felt, he had made me feel like I was the problem in our toxic relationship!
