Stamplorations' Trifecta Cardmaking

Hey there! I am up on the Stamplorations' Blog today with a fresh "trifecta", three cards combining stamps, stencils and clear stickers. My cards all contained Bloomful stamp set, Bloomdalascopic and Delicate Links stencils and Happiness Here clear stickers. I think the stencil I used might be retired but Bloom Boldly or Stained Glass might be good replacements.
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 fad out and just some black ink stamping with the Bloomful set. 

My final card used a completely blended panel with the Delicate Links stencil layed over and spritzed with water to create a fade. I use 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!
