Hey crafty friends! It’s release day for Trinity Stamps and I had the pleasure of playing with some of these goodies early. They are so fun to create with. I have a card and a pillow box to share with you today and will be back soon with even more!
For my card today, I inked up the awesome Checkered Background: Hearts stencil layers on a melon cardstock. I faded the inking as I went down the panel just a bit. I feel like that detail shows up much better in person than in photos.
I kept the two cutting dies in the Dainty Heart Die and Foil set together to cut out a beautiful frame. I added foam strips to that and popped it up on the stenciled panel. Then I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day from Sucker For You and used the coordinating die to cut it out before popping it up with a foam strip as well.
I adhered the panel to a white card base and my card is all finished. I love how simple but pretty this card turned out. If you wanted to step it up a bit you could add a scattering of glitzy embellishments across the design or turn that heart frame into a shaker too! Lots of fun options!
Next, I pulled out my very favorite Pillow Box dies to create a treat box for Valentine’s Day and paired it with the fun Sucker For You stamps and dies.
I started by stamping and coloring the image from Sucker For You and used the coordinating die to cut it out. After it was cut out, I thought it would be fun to turn it into a shaker. To do that, I chose a circle die and cut out the face. Then I die cut another full image from acetate and glued it to the back. I stamped and colored just the face on a second image and cut that out too. To assemble it all, I added foam strips and squares to the back of the acetate layer, added some sprinkles and sealed it up with the second die cut image.
Next, I die cut the pillow box from teal cardstock and inked it up with the Heartburst stencils. I added adhesive tape and sealed the box up before tying twine around it and adding the shaker sucker with foam squares.
Be sure to take a moment and go check out the whole new release. It’s got great things for Valentine’s Day, New Year and Chinese New Year, plus more!
