Stamping Friends Trifecta Blog Hop





Hello and welcome to the Stamping Friends Trifecta bloghop and giveaway. 

You should have reached my blog via Susie, if not you can head back to Gina's blog to follow along. 


My Sweet Petunia,  Picket Fence Studios and Gina K Designs have all teamed up for one grand bloghop with lots of inspiration. 
There is also a giveaway, each company is giving away a $50 gift card to their store. All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog, winners will be randomly selected from the comments of the participating blogs. All winners will be posted on the company blogs no later tan June 7th.

I have a couple different cards to share with you. 
The first one I used the Press & Seal technique aka Floating Die Cuts.
To create this card I started with a top folding White heavy base weight note card, a panel of White layering weight and a panel of Black Onyx for the mat.
I stamped the butterflies from the Elegant Asters set on a piece of Artist Choice cardstock using Black Amalgam ink, colored them using Copic Markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. Next I laid the panel of white layering card stock down and then placed the butterflies randomly only touching a little bit. After I achieved the look I wanted I placed a piece of Press & Seal over them to hold them in place, I used foam tape on the back of each one and then placed them back on the panel and cut off the ones that overhung. I stamped the greeting from the You Make me Smile set using the watermark ink and embossed it using white embossing powder on a strip of Black Onyx that I cut down using the Cut-Align.



To create my second card, I started with a top folding heavy base weight note card and a panel of layering white. I stamped the beautiful girl Marti by Picket Fence Studios using the Black Hybrid ink and colored her with Copic markers and cut her out using the coordinating die. I also used the Elegant Asters set by Gina K Designs for the flowers.
From here you will head over to Lisa's blog to see what she has in store.
