Trifecta Cardmaking with Sue

Hello. I am back for another addition of the Cardmaking Trifecta.  Stamps, stencils and stickers all rolled into one card times three. Today's cards are some of my favorite to be created with this technique so far...

On a white A2 card base I used the Delicate Links stencil and soft gray ink to blend a background. Using the Lotus Love stamp set, I stamped the water images in amethyst ink and the greeting in black ink over the water images. Then on water color cardstock I stamped several of the floral and leaf images and painted them. When they were dry, I covered them with Wink of Stella and fussy cut them out. Placing the Newsprint Background Bits #1 sticker on amethyst card stock and  mounting to card front with foam tape. The flowers and leaves were glued over the sticker and a few Nuvo drops were added to accent.

This card started with a white panel that I ink blended the flowers with three colors of ink with the Bloom Silhouettes stencil. Then I covered the panel with the Newsprint Background Bits #1 stickers and trimmed the panel down mounting it to a white card base with foam tape. Using the Lotus Love and Wooded stamp sets I stamped the sentiment strip and mounted it to the card front with foam tape.

With my final card I was going for the mixed media feel again. I started with a scrap of white card stock that I stenciled the word Hugs from the Hello & Company stencil in orange ink. I then stamped some random hearts in rose ink placing the Mixed Media Background 1 clear sticker over and trimmed to fit the size of the sticker. Using the Art Marks 2 stamp set I stamped a top folding, white A2 card base and mounted the sticker panel to card with foam tape. I then die cut a series of hearts, glued them together for dimension and stamped the greeting from the Literary Caffeine-ations.  After punching a hole through the heart, tying a jute knot and mounting to the card front with foam tape the card was complete.

I hope you enjoyed this journey through the Cardmaking Trifecta and will plan on challenging yourself. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
