Trinity Stamps – Hopping By…

Hey friends! I have a really fun Trinity Stamps interactive card to share with you today! Sometimes it’s just so fun to dig in your stash and play with whatever suits your fancy…and that’s exactly what I did for this card!

I started by stamping and coloring the images from Puddle Jumpers with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I took a 3.5×8.5 inch panel and inked it up with a couple of blue inks and my blending brushes. I also inked up a shorter panel with brown inks. Then I started die cutting my pieces. I cut the top of the brown panel with the great outdoors hill die and a white panel with the slimline scenic borders cloud border. I glued these to the inked up blue panel and then ran die cut the whole panel with the slimline surprises die.

I adhered the frogs to strips of acetate and adhered them to the back of the puddle jumper image. Then I used liquid glue to adhere it to the slider panel, being careful not the glue the top portion down so it still slides up. I also stamped the happy birthday sentiment from one of the blue inks I used on the panel and cut it out with the coordinating die, gluing it down with liquid glue.

Next, I took a slimline card base and used my panel as a guide to stamp a surprise when you slide the mechanism up. Then I die cut the pull tab card that makes the mechanism move and stamped images on the top of it that will show when you pull the tab up. I tied some fun ribbon through the hole to add to the whole overall look. I love this touch!

To assemble my whole card, I added 1/4 inch scrappy tape to the bottom of the folding mechanism and adhered the pull tab tag to it. Then I added 1/8 inch scrappy to the sides, 1/4 inch to the bottom of the panel and added it to the card front. I pulled it up and down a few times and it works perfectly! Time to move on to finishing touches.

I added unicorn Stickles to the raindrops and parts of the water puddle. Then I added glossy accents to the frog’s eyes, including the froggy hood too! I also added them to the rain boots and finished things off with black glaze pen to the kiddo’s eyes.

Isn’t this card just sooo cute?!? I love it!!!
