Hey friends! I’m over on the Trinity Stamps blog today with a really fun birthday card that is all one layer! I used the new Pretty Party Decor stamp set. And I didn’t pull out the foam squares for even a second this time! Trust me…it was difficult. Lol! But this card is so fun. Let’s check it out!
Today I started by laying out my stamps on a card base to see if the design in my head would even work. This can be very helpful when doing cards with lots of to same stamp over and over again or making sure spacing looks how you think it will.
Then I chose one of my favorite distress oxide ink blends and started blending on an oversized white panel. The magic combo is abandoned coral, tattered rose and dried marigold. These colors just make me happy every time I put them together!
I splattered the panel with water and once it was dry I die cut it with the largest Modern Embossed Rectangle die and started my stamping!
The first round of stamping was all the black – sentiment and strings – which I stamped with VersaFine ink. I sprinkled clear embossing powder on the sentiment and heat set it. This is a big reason I like using VersaFine…and it covers beautifully on the first impression. Then I moved on to stamping the lanterns at the bottom of the strings with aged mahogany distress oxide ink. I heat set that and then stamped the detail over the top of them with VersaMark and heat embossed them with gold.
I came back and added a few more strings and then moved on to the confetti stamps in this set. I started with a scattering and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder and then went back and added more filling things in and embossed those in gold.
It’s hard for me to make masculine cards but when this was finished I immediately thought that you could change the colors and make this card fit great for a guy’s birthday too!
Hey friends! Miss Ink Stamps has a new release coming and we’re sneaking peaks over on Instagram for the next few days before the release goes live on Saturday! Today I have a super cute and silly gnome card to share with you.
My dad is a huge Elvis fan. I grew up watching those movies and dancing to that music so this set just made my heart happy to create with!
I colored up the images with my copic colors and trimmed it down. Then I used the Trinity Stamps Embossed Edge Rectangle Stack to create some layers. Starting with the base which is white adhered to a white card base. I really wanted that matching embossed edge so I didn’t mind the extra layer. Then a cool gold glitter layer adhere with foam strips. Last there is a black layer also popped up with foam tape and the little scene adhered to that with liquid glue.
For finishing touches I added glossy accents to the gnomes glasses, buttons and belt, along with the microphone and stand. I thought there needed to be a little shine but I didn’t want it to compete with the cool glitter cardstock layer.
This is just too much fun! I love the whole little scene. Remember there are giveaways on Instagram from today until the release so be sure to head over and comment on the Miss Ink posts.
Hey friends! I’m back today with another Miss Ink Stamps card. I just had to bring that awesome Rainbow Builder stencil set and play again. I just love these so much!
I started by cutting a white panel to 4×5.25 inches. Then I centered the largest layer of the rainbow stencil I wanted to use and inked it up. Then I switched to the second layer and ended with those fun accents details in dark blue this time.
I trimmed a piece of cardstock in the general shape of the rainbow to use as a mask from the outer stenciling I wanted to do. I taped down the Tiny Snowfall stencil next and inked it up in dark blue. Then I came back with the Starry Night stencil and gold glitter glitz gel. While the glitz gel was drying I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Sunshine and Rainbows on a dark blue cardstock with white embossing powder. I used the Trinity Stamps 4-bar Card die set to cut it into a sentiment banner.
I added foam tape to the back of the stenciled panel and popped it on a white card base. Then I used a little liquid adhesive to adhere the banner down and my card is all finished. Isn’t this so fun?!?
Welcome, welcome!!! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I’m over on the Trinity Stamps blog for another fun Wednesday. Today we’re having a sweet tea party with a couple of adorable bears! I love how large these images are! They fill up a slimline or an A2 size card but they also work wonderfully with the new A7 card size products as well! Today I really wanted to try them on a slimline, so let’s get started.
I stamped and heat embossed the images on Bristol Smooth cardstock and watercolored them all with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush pen. When they were dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Then I started die cutting the elements for my scene so I could get inky messy!
I die cut 3 panels with the largest Slimline Modern Embossed Panels die. Then I used the Slimline Great Outdoor Borders dies to cut a hill and some grass with two of the panels. Then I came in with distress oxide inks and inked each panel up. I spritzed them all with water and blotted them dry. Last, I die cut the sweet picket fence from the Great Outdoors Borders and moved on to assembling my card.
I used liquid adhesive to adhere the background layers together. Then I added foam squares to the back of my images, including the sentiment and decided on final placement. I wanted some depth so I used liquid glue to adhere the tree stump and girl bear. Then I removed the release paper on everything else and popped them in place.
Isn’t this scene just too cute for words?!? I love these sweet bears! My brain is working trying to figure out what else I can have them sit on!
Hello everyone! Today I’m over on the Miss Ink Stamps blog with this sweet little mini slimline card and coordinating envelope. I just love these mice and their sidekicks from Say Cheese! so I pulled out the penguins, which I hadn’t used yet and decided to color them up!
I also colored a couple of clouds and a butterfly to fill in my scene. Once they were colored I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and switched gears to stenciling and ink blending.
For that I die cut the scalloped panel from the Trinity Stamps mini slimline card and envelope die set. I taped off from the stitching to the edge and affixed my Miss Ink Stamps Square Dance stencil. I inked it up with a light purple ink. I removed that panel, die cut the bookmark tag from the same die set and replaced it in the same spot so the stenciling lines up perfectly. This time I inked up with a light blue ink. Next, I taped down the Tiny Snowfall stencil and used a dark blue on that. It gives a really fun texture to the sky.
Finally, I die cut another small panel with the bottom of the bookmark tag die and inked it up with the Oopsie Daisy stencil and green ink. I removed the stencil and inked the whole panel up again giving the whole thing a light green color. I cut the top of that little panel off with a Trinity Stamps Great Outdoor Border die to create a little hill. One last thing before assembling the card, I stamped a sentiment from Sunshine and Rainbows on a banner from the mini slimline die set and die cut the words “for you” from the same set.
For assembly, I created a mini slimline card base measuring 3×6 inches and adhered my scalloped panel with liquid adhesive. I added foam tape to the back of the tag and popped it in place, lining up the stenciling. Then I added foam squares to the back of my images and sentiment banner and used them for placement of the words being glued in the sky. For those skinny pieces I used a glue pen to adhere them. Then I removed the release paper from my images and popped everything in place.
Finishing touches on my card were to cut some strips of yellow bakers twine and thread it through the top of the tag. Then I added glossy accents to noses and beaks and black glaze pen to all the eyes. I used unicorn Stickles on the butterfly and the pom poms on the mouse’s hat. Once the black glaze pen was dry I added white gel pen dot highlights to the eyes.
Hey friends! Today I’m over on the Trinity Stamps blog sharing this fuzzy, fun slimline card featuring more new goodies from the most recent release!
To create my card, I started by grabbing the Lemon and Leaves stencil, choosing some inks, my blending brushes and a white panel for my stenciling.
You’ll notice that I had a yellow ink picked out but as I got that far in my stenciling I thought it would be way more fun to make fuzzy lemons. So I switched gears for that last layer and spread Thermoweb Transfer Gel Blanco through the lemon layer.
After I spread the transfer gel, I set my panel aside to dry while I cleaned up my mess and also turned on my laminator to heat up so it was ready to go when the panel was dry. I ran the panel through my laminator with a yellow decofoil flock transfer sheet in a folded piece of parchment paper. Then I just peeled the flock sheet away from the stenciled panel and MAGIC!
Then I pulled out the Slimline Embossed Edge dies and cut the largest one from black cardstock and the third largest one from the stenciled panel. Then I die cut the new Slimline Striped Frame Panel die from white cardstock.
For assembly, I adhered the black panel to a white card base, then adhere the striped frame panel to that. I added foam tape to the back of the stenciled panel and popped it in place next.
For my sentiment, I stamped hello from the new Big & Bold Sentiments stamp set and trimmed it out with my paper trimmer. I popped it on with foam tape as well.
I just LOVE the bright yellow lemons and their green leaves popping against the white and black of this card! Isn’t it just awesome!?!
Hi there! I’m over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today for Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook. The most recent Trinity Stamps release was packed full of tea-riffic cuteness so I’m still playing with it and wanted to share this fun slimline tea party scene with you!
For this card, I stamped and heat embossed the new Slimline Tea Party stamp in black on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to watercolor the whole scene.
I used a Slimline Stitched Panel die to cut it out an added foam tape to the back. Then I die cut the new Slimline Dainty Scallop panel from gray cardstock and added foam to the back of that. I layered them together and then onto a white slimline card base.
Last of all, I stamped and heat embossed my favorite sentiment from this stamp set on white cardstock and used a banner die from Slimline Scalloped Panels and Banners to cut it out. I adhered it with foam squares.
I love this full panel slimline stamps that Trinity carries and this Tea Party scene is just too perfect for this tea loving girl!
Hey friends! I’m back today with an adorable unikitty slimline card to share featuring stamps from Paperie Ink and some other goodies from Newton’s Nook and Trinity Stamps. I just love these kitties so much! They are adorable and so fun to color!
I started my card by stamping and heat embossing the kitties on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I watercolored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out and switched over to my background.
Next, I used the Newton’s Nook Cloudy Sky stencil on a white panel with Lawn Fawn inks in rainbow colors. This is a 6×6 stencil so I did half of the panel, shifted the stencil down and continued my clouds. Then, I used my images as a guide to decide where I wanted my sentiment. I stamped it in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.
I die cut a couple of cloud strips with the Newton’s Nook Sky Borders die and adhered them to the stenciled panel with liquid adhesive. Then I used the largest Trinity Stamps Slimline Stitched Panel die to cut it out. This die leaves about a 1/8″ border so I trimmed down purple cardstock and adhered it to a white slimline card base before adhering the main card panel with foam tape.
I added foam squares to the back of my kitties and popped them in place. To fill in some of the space I thought these Trinity Stamps Boiled Sugar Jelly Drop Hearts were the perfect touch!
Isn’t this just the sweetest card?!? I could seriously color these sweet kitties all day long. I love the different poses and how chubby cute they are!
Hello again! I’m stopping by today with a super fun and adorable mini slimline card featuring an MFT Stamps set called Weather With You. I absolutely love these critters and had so much fun coloring and stacking them sky high!
I started by stacking my stamps up to see how many I could fit on a mini slimline card front. Then I stamped them out and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside.
Next, I pulled out two Trinity Stamps die sets – mini slimline card and envelope set and mini slimline stitched layers stack. I cut the second-to-largest stitched panel from a light blue cardstock and stamped it with MFT Stamps Diagonal Stripes Background stamp in Lawn Fawn mermaid ink. Then I used the scalloped panel die from the mini slimline card dies set and cut it from yellow cardstock.
I created a mini slimline card base by folding a 6×6 white cardstock panel in half to create a 3×6 card. I used liquid adhesive to adhere the yellow scalloped panel to the front. Then foam tape to the back of the striped panel and adhered it in place. Then I used liquid glue to adhere all my critters together and lined the back of them with foam tape as well.
I stamped a sentiment and die cut it with a banner die from the mini slimline card and envelope set and added foam strips to the back of that. I adhered the sentiment banner and critters at the same time to help with placement.
For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the critter’s eyes. Then glossy accents to their noses and the fish bowl. Finally, I glued a scattering of red clay hearts across the design and also put one in the panda’s hand because it was just too perfect!
Aren’t these guys just the sweetest?!? I absolutely adore them and can’t wait to play again soon!
Hey friends! The super fun collaboration between Miss Ink Stamps and Thermoweb continues today! I’m over on the Miss Ink Stamps blog with this adorable card featuring Bubbles and the coordinating dies with Thermoweb toner card fronts and decofoil for some awesome shine!
I started this card by choosing a toner card front from the Love Blooms toner card front pack. I foiled it with glass slipper decofoil and then ink blended tumbled glass and mermaid lagoon distress oxide over the top. I used a clean microfiber cloth to wipe the ink off the foiling and splattered the background with watered down black paint.
Next, I stamped and colored images from Bubbles with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside. I die cut a vellum heart from the Trinity Stamps Nested Hearts dies, then cut the bottom tip again from white cardstock. I inked that up with mowed lawn and twisted citron distress oxide and cut the top with the grass border from Trinity Stamps Great Outdoor Borders die set. I used tape runner to adhere them together. Using my images as a guide, I stamped and heat embossed some bubbles on the “sky” portion of the heart for a little added interest.
I stamped a sentiment from Bubbles and cut it out with a banner die from the Trinity Stamps 4-Bar Card die set. Next, I added foam squares and strips to the images and sentiment strip and adhered them to the heart.
I trimmed the foiled panel down to 4×5.25 inches and added foam tape to the back, adhering it to a white card base. Then, hiding adhesive behind the grass and images, I adhered the heart to the front of the card and moved on to finishing touches.
For those, I just added glossy accents to the bubble bottle on the snail and the whole bubble that the mouse is floating in. The background on this card is so eye catching and beautiful that I didn’t really need to add anything.
