{Trifecta Cardmaking} Beautiful Bloomful Cards

  

Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! We are back with Trifecta Cardmaking, a fun feature wherein you'll see how the three S's in our line -- stamps, stencils, and stickers -- play well in cardmaking. Guest designer Sue Symens is back with a trio of gorgeous cards.

Make sure you comment on this post for a chance at a $7 prize code. Every month starting this month, we'll draw 10 winners, with the winners randomly drawn from all posts published during the month. The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have.


    

Hey there! I am up today with a fresh trifecta -- three cards combining stamps, stencils, and clear stickers. My cards all contained Bloomful stamp set, Bloomdalascopic #3 and Delicate Links stencils, and Happiness Here clear stickers. 

For the first card I started with a little ink blending then added glimmer paste over my blended panel. When dry I trimmed it down and mounted it to a white A2 card base. I then stamped and colored the tag with alcohol markers, added glossy effects and glitter to the flowers. When dry I added bakers twine, the clear greeting from the Hey Sunshine set and mounted to the blended panel with foam tape.

The second card has simple ink blending to a fade out and just some black ink stamping with the Bloomful set. 



*****

My final card used a completely blended panel with the Delicate Links stencil laid over and spritzed with water to create a fade. I used just regular die ink and blending brushes to create my panels. I stamped the Bloomful again with black ink on both the panel and the card base to create a continuous image. The clear sticker was added to the stamped tag along with more twine. 

*Tip- After placing your clear sticker on your card stock flip it over and rub a teflon bone folder over the back to push out any air bubbles.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you will create some Trifecta cards on your own and share them with us!

  1. WOW!! These are so beautiful. I love the subtle stenciling on the first two and the burst of color on the last card. Thanks for the tip on getting the clear stickers to apply smoothly as well.

  7. All three are beautiful. I love that glimmer paste on card #1. And I always love to see images not colored (since I'm only a basic colorist) for the inspiration. tfs!

  13. These are great samples for combining the sets. I'd like to try the first project share. I really like the corner use for the stencil.
