May Flowers Blog Hop

Welcome to our Fun Stampers Journey "May Flowers & Growth" Blog Hop! I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you arrived here from Wilma Paynes' blog, you're on the right track. If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

I've chosen to show 2 floral cards for our hop as I don't have a "green thumb".  I've used 2 different fun stamp sets, Dahlia Burst and Glass Blooms.

This card is a version of the Triple Play technique.  I love monochrome cards and I only used Beach Breeze ink and card stock, along with Whip Cream card stock, of course.  A few Blue Skies sequins and some sponging and this card is complete! I did have to do some masking to get the leaves where I wanted them.

I didn't pop up the layers but the effect is still there.

My second card is also a version of the Triple Play technique. I used the Journey Rectangles die set to make my layers.

The Glass Blooms set was from the February Bloom Box and should be available for purchase next month. I used Black Licorice ink, and Whip Cream and Watermelon Fusion card stocks.

Here you can see the layers.  I colored the flowers and butterflies with Copic markers and added some Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust.

Both my cards were inspired by a couple I had pinned.

These came out so nice. I tried this once, but the image didn't go all the way out to the edges. Yours are perfect. Do you have a tutorial?
