Welcome, welcome friends! I have some unbearably adorable happy mail to share with you all today! I tried a new distress oxide ink combo and played with one of the new Trinity Stamps sets – Special Delivery. It’s got another round of those super cute bears that I just love and this one has a pup too!
I started by stamping and coloring those cute images with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Next, I die cut the largest Slimline Scalloped Panel die from white cardstock. I pulled out distress oxide inks and blended them together at an angle. Left to right I used chipped sapphire, peacock feathers and twisted citron. I splattered it with water and the flicked pearl watercolor on it too. Next, I watered down a bit of black acrylic paint and, without rinsing my watercolor brush, I picked up the paint and flicked it too. This turned out so cool! It’s like a pearl charcoal paint splatter. It’s beautiful in the light.
Next, I die cut the word happy from the Marshmallow alphabet dies 3 times and glued them together. I partial stamped a sentiment from Special Delivery and heat embossed it. Then I trimmed it into a little block. I used liquid glue to adhere the inked panel to a white slimline card base.
I used liquid glue to adhere the word happy, then added foam squares to the back of my images and the word mail and started adhering them to the card base. For finishing touches I added glossy accents to parts like the mailbox flag, smiley faces and critter noses. Then I came in with unicorn Stickles for the flowers at the base of the mailbox.
This little stamp set is absolutely adorable but keep in mind too that it works fabulously with a bundle of other products from Trinity Stamps like the Cozy Cottage, Cottage Kitchen, Cozy Christmas Cottage, Cozy Bear and You Lift Me Up!
