Welcome to the Stamping Friends Trifecta Blog Hop with Picket Fence Studios, Gina K Designs and My Sweet Petunia! This collaboration of artists and friends is sure to inspire and I’m thrilled to be a part of it! I have two cards to share today! See links at the bottom plus how to win one of three $50 gift certificates from our sponsors.
First I have a card that uses the Elegant Asters Stamp Set by Gina K Designs. I stamped the images using my Misti (because I ALWAYS stamp with my Misti) to ensure perfect inking. Then I colored them using Copic Markers. Since they are Asters, I focussed on purples but decided that adding in a yellow flower would be a nice contrast. The butterfly was a must add to this card because, well, it is such a beautiful butterfly!! I used the Wishes Die paired with the Wishes Mini Stamp Set for the sentiment. And here is the kicker…that close cutting with perfect borders on the tiny sentiment?? Yeah, the My Sweet Petunia Cut Align!!! Oh, I’m in LOVE!! I added some splatters using black watercolor paint and Smooch Moonlight Accent Ink.
For my second card, I decided to focus on only the sentiment. Same die and stamp but a totally different vibe! I used Gina K Inks with my Life Changing Blender Brushes to add ink to some watercolor paper. I added some water to soften the look and splattered with some water as well. By using the blender brushes, I could control the color placement which made it work easier for me. Again, I used the Cut Align to create the layered tiny sentiments. The Blue Lagoon Card Stock was wonderful for a base to make the colors pop!
Next up is Jana Millen.
