I’m thrilled to be guest designing with Trinity Stamps for their brand new Christmas release. There’s an amazing blog hop going on today with tons of inspiration and prizes to be won.
I have 3 amazing projects to share with you and the hop info will be at the bottom. Be sure to read all the way down so you don’t miss out!
This first card features the new bear tree stamp and shine brighter layered stencils. I simply ink blended my background, inked the stencil over it, then distress sprayed it. I popped my sparkly snow on the ground and my bear with foam squares. Then I finished it off by stamping my sentiment at the top, with glossy accents on the bear’s nose and fun embellishments from Trinity too!
This next card is completely die cut except the sentiment. I used the tall shaker dome dies and frosty snowflakes sprinkle embellishments. I cut all of my dome pieces with white cardstock and used copic markers to color them in. To make the dome shorter and fit my card better, I die cut it, then realigned the dome and partial cut the top again shrinking it down. This is a great way to get more life out of your dies.
I purposely made the front of this final card a little sparse because the inside is where all the fun is! This Do Re Me Ow set is to die for! These kitties are the absolute cutest and I feel like I could make 100 cards with them! Okay, ready for it???
Look at those cute kitty carolers! They are so fun! For this card I ink blended blue on a blue panel for dimension, die cut a hill from the top and then used pop up dies for the kitties to be attached to. (You could totally do this part with a craft knife though.) I stamped the snow from the front on the inside and adhered my pieces together. Then popped the kitties on their spots and stamped my sentiments. For finishing touches I added Stickles to the snow edge on the front and inside and glossy accents to kitty noses and tongues and little things like the candle flames, holly berries, lights and hat star.
Here’s a side view so you can see the dimension when the card is opened up flat. This is my first time trying this technique and I can totally see myself doing it more. It was so much fun to put together! And there is plenty of room for a handwritten message at the bottom.
Be sure to leave comments on all the hop spots for a chance to win a $25 gift card to the Trinity Stamps store. The winner will be selected from participating blogs. Must comment by 11/7 at 11:59 PM PT. Winner will be announced on the Trinity Blog the following Friday on Nov. 8.
