Stamping Friends Trifecta Blog Hop

Hey, crafty friends. I’m excited to be a part of a special blog hop today. Picket Fence Studios has teamed up with Gina K. Designs and My Sweet Petunia to bring you lots of inspiration. I love this industry and how people work together. It makes my heart happy. It was a pleasure working with Gina K. and My Sweet Petunia products. I used them to create these cards…

I started by creating mini card bases from Gina K. card stock. The colored cards measure 4 x 4 and I cut one of THESE ovals from the center, creating a window. I stamped the butterfly image from THIS stamp all over the front panel to create a background using coordinating Gina K. ink (her ink is AMAZING). I also stamped a butterfly for each card on white card stock and used THIS coordinating die to cut it out. I adhered that in the center of the oval window on the inside of the card. I die-cut THIS word in black two times for each card. I adhered one to the front of the opening, adding glue just to the ends that touch the card front. I adhered the second one behind that on the inside front flap directly behind to add stability.

I also created square envelopes to match my cards made from standard A2 envelopes. I learned this tip from Gina K. and it’s so fun and easy! She has a great video explaining how to do this HERE (it’s towards the end of the video at the 17:00 mark).

I added a sentiment from THIS stamp set along the bottom and I used THIS tool from My Sweet Petunia to cut them all out. This tool is amazing for cutting out small sentiment strips. I used it for cutting several blank strips as well. I adhered those behind the sentiment strips for added dimension. I also wanted to share a simple tip about the MISTI. The MISTI by far is my most used tools in the craft room. I use it for stamping on every project. I also like to use it for adhering card fronts to card bases. I’m extremely challenged in this area and not sure why. LOL But if you’re like me and ruin a lot of card bases because the panels are just always a little “off”, try placing the card base in the corner of the MISTI before adhering your panel on. It gives a nice straight edge and makes adhering card panels so much easier.
