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.
