Hey friends! It’s Wednesday and I’m super excited to share this adorable Trinity Stamps circus themed birthday card with you as we sail toward the weekend! This week Trinity Stamps designers are highlighting one of our illustrators all week long – blog, Instagram and YouTube – Davina over at Popsicle Sticks! The Le Cirque stamp set I’m using today was illustrated by her!
To start my card, I knew that I wanted to try out the new build a big top die set so I cut everything from white cardstock and colored various pieces with my copic markers. Then I used liquid to to adhere it all together. It was really simple and fun to do! I’ll link to a great blog post HERE if you have questions about assembly…and a video HERE if that’s more your learning style.
Next, I chose images from Le Cirque, stamped and colored them with my copics as well. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside. Next, I took an oversized panel and inked up the Good Morning Sunshine stencil in two-tone yellow inks. Then I used the largest embossed edge rectangle die to cut it out. I used liquid glue to adhered it to a white card base. Next, I decided that I wanted grass for my scene instead of just the great rays from the stencil, so I cut another small panel with the embossed edge rectangle and then trimmed the top with a grass die from the great outdoors slimline die set. I inked it up with a couple of greens for some dimension and glued it in place.
Next, I adhered the fabulous circus tent, added foam squares to the back of my images and popped them in place. I put the whole card in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment from Balancing Acts in the top left corner and moved on to finishing touches.
For those, I added a combo of glossy accents and star dust Stickles to various elements. Then I went in with black glaze pen on all the eyes that are open.
I’ve been having a blast playing with all of the awesome circus themed prodcuts Trinity released and I hope you’re enjoying them too1
