Stamping Friends Trifecta Blog Hop

Thursday, May 30, 2019


Hello everyone!

Welcome to the Trifecta blog hop!  I am so excited Gina K. Designs has joined forces with two terrific companies, My Sweet Petunia and Picket Fence Studios!  You should be coming from Lydia Fiedler blog.  The list is below if you get lost sometime along the way.

The design teams have created some beautiful projects we will be sharing with you and as always there are great prizes to go along with a blog hop.  Each company will be giving away a $50.00 gift card to spend in their store, so be sure to stop by each blog (listed below) and leave a comment, the winner will be randomly drawn.  Winners will be announced on the company blogs no later than June 7th. I look forward to reading your comments on my projects I am sharing with you today.

Here are my projects for the hop:

My first card is an A2 top folding card, for my background I used the Picket Fence Studios Random Dots Stencil.  I used the “Life Changing” Blender Brush Set to blend several colors of the Gina K. inks.  Keeping the stencil in place I used sponge dauber and dabbed versamark  onto the paper and used Gina K. clear embossing powder to heat set the dots to give it a shinny embossed look (it's hard to tell in the picture).  Here is a close up of what it looks like.  I then die cut a piece of cardstock and used the Magic brush to give the background some color, I took my Misti and placed the sentiment where I wanted it to be and stamped it.  I used the cut align tool to cut the layers.  Here is a link to see how to use how to use it.  I die cut the "wishes" die and used some black craft foam to give the word dimension.  All supplies that I used on my card is below.

My second card is an A2 top folding card, I used the Picket Fence Studios Floral Damask stencil, I used the “Life Changing” Blender Brush Set with Gina K. slate ink using more pressure at the bottom and less at the top to give the background an ombre effect. I stamped the butterfly from the Elegant Asters card kit, that was released earlier this month, and colored it in with copics, I used foam squares to adhere it to my card, and lastly I stamped the sentiment also from the Gina K. Designs Elegant Asters card kit.   All supplies that I used on my card is below.

My last card, is an A2 top folding card,  I used the cut align tool to cut the layers.  Here is a link to see how to use how to use it.  I stamped the background using Gina K. Petite Flourishes background stamp with versamark and heat embossed it with Gina K. Designs fine white embossing powder and used the “Life Changing” Blender Brush Set to ink the background.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Elegant Asters card kit with Gina K. Designs ink, I then stamped it again with versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I then die cut it out using Gina K. Designs stitched dies.  All supplies that I used on my card is below.

Graduation Card/Teacher Cards

Saturday, May 25, 2019

Hello everyone!

This is the time of year when you need graduation cards, teacher appreciation cards and thank you cards.  I am showcasing three cards that I created using mostly Taylored Expression stamps and dies.  I am playing along with the Taylored Expressions Fan page over on Facebook.  There are a few more days to play along, click here to upload your cards.

My first card I created using the Taylored Expression Bubble Greeting - Grad.  I stamped the image and colored it with copics.  The background is Taylored Expressions Shining Star Cutting Plate.  I used some gold glitter paper behind the stars.


My second card, I stamped the paper from the Taylored Expressions Notepaper Background, I added the holes on the side of the paper with a punch from my stash.  I then used Gina K. Designs Fancy Foil Red Velvet with Taylored Expressions Foil It - Cardstock Apple of My Eye Sentiments.  I foiled the apples with my Minc and used my scan and cut to cut them out.  I then adhered them to the paper and layered it with black and adhered it to my top folding card.


My last card, I die cut the background and adhered it to my top fold card, I then foiled this apple with Gina K. Designs Jelly Bean Green.  The sentiment is from a stamp set by Altnew, I stamped it with versamark, used white embossing powder and heat set it.  I added this to the card with some foam squares.

Joy Clair - Thanks a Latte

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Hello everyone!

I am here with Joy Clair Stamps and we are collaboring with Bazzill Paper for the month of May.  They have a variety of beautiful papers that will make your projects really stand out.  I am sharing a sneak peak coffee card with the upcoming new release of Joy Clair Stamps set called Teacher.  I love this set, it is so versatile.  You can make a teachers card or just make a card using the coffee cup.  With this week being teacher's appreciation week, this set is great for making your teacher cards to thank them for their hard work.  This stamp set is a keeper for me and will be available in the Joy Clair store on May 13th!

I am playing along with the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, Joy Clair is a Super Sponsor and we have a code for 25% off all coffee related stamps.  At the checkout, please add MAYCOFFEELOVE.  The Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is from May 3-10. If you have a chance to play along there are many prizes to be won!

Here is how I put my card together:

1.  My card is an A2 card, measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,
2.  I die cut a black piece of cardstock and then die cut the beautiful Bazzill Paper with the hearts on it and adhered the two pieces together and adhered it to the base of the card,
3.  I die cut the black piece of cardstock and with my finger smeared some white pigment ink to make it look like a chalk board, I then stamped the sentiment from the Teacher stamp set, with the white pigment ink.
4.  I stamped and colored the cup with copics, and then used my scan and cut to cut it out, I adhered this to my card using some foam dots.

My card is pretty much clean and simple, but elegant.  I love the Bazzill heart paper.  They have it in several colors, which is perfect for any card you are creating.  Thank you  Bazzill Paper for such beautiful papers.

Designs mini sets called "You make me Smile".
