Trinity Stamps – Oh, Chute!

Hi everyone! Just popping in with a super fun card featuring Purrachute from the new Trinity Stamps release that went live last Friday. This little kitty with his parachute is just the cutest! And the sentiments in the set are absolutely adorable!

To make this card, I started by coloring my image with my copics and then used the coordinating dies to cut him and the sentiment out. I set those aside and started inking my background. I used distress inks on an A2 panel and splattered it with water. Then I took my Cloudy Day Scene Builder dies and cut the frame, some clouds and the sun out. I popped the frame up with foam tape on the inked panel and adhered my sun and clouds over that.

I popped my kitty up with foam tape and adhered the sentiment with liquid glue and moved on to finishing touches. I started by adding white gel pen accents to the kitty and black glaze pen to his eyes. Then I moved on to glossy accents to the parachute, his toe beans and his nose.

I finished them off with Stickles on the clouds and sun for a little extra interest and shimmer at the top of the card too.

I love that there are two completely different sentiments in this stamp set to change the entire meaning of your card so easily. This little kitty is just the cutest and so much fun to color!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Trinity Stamps – You Make Life Colorful

Hello everyone! Welcome to a brand new week! I’m really excited to share today’s card with you. I had some fun watercoloring with my Zig markers and absolutely love the outcome. I used the recently release Blooming Bunch images and a sentiment from A Crafter’s Heart that released earlier this year.

I started by heat embossing my images with silver embossing power on Bristol smooth cardstock and then set to coloring them with my Zigs and a water brush pen. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and moved on to making my card.

I used the diagonal stripes stencil with gray ink on a gray panel and popped my images up with foam squares. I trimmed off the excess and adhered it to a white card base.

I stamped my sentiment and trimmed it into a strip. Then I used an old paper punch to create the flag end. I popped this up with foam squares as well and moved in to finishing touches.

I added a scattering of Seashore Confetti embellishments around my card design and called it done. I love the shine from the heat embossed image and didn’t want to distract from the beautiful watercolor florals.

I think this is just a gorgeous stamp set and the images have endless color possibilities which could turn it into a fall or winter bouquet easily. I can’t believe I’m admitting this but I can totally see a Christmas bouquet already! …and it’s only August! Something doesn’t seem right with that. Haha.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Trinity Stamps – Treetop Adventure Release Day

It’s finally here and I’m over the moon excited to share with you an epic card with so much fun, sparkle, and happy you’re going to shout hooray!!!

I’m introducing to you today, the Treetop Adventure stamps and dies! Isn’t this absolutely fabulous?!?!? Yeah, it really is! So many fun things these kiddos can do and the tree fits on a slimline. However, it’s also wide enough and portioned so it can fit a regular A2 card as well! Super versatile and full of fun!

I couldn’t help but pull this fun sentiment from the Happy Senti-mini stamps and dies. If I had a treehouse like this, I’d be shouting hooray all the time! Wouldn’t you?

Looks like the boys have taken the treehouse for now…but I’m sure the girls are scheming their way up there in a bit!

For now a little tire swing and kite flying looks to be absolutely perfect! Be sure to check out the whole set and the rest of the release on the Trinity Stamps site.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Back 2 School Sneak Peek

Hey there! I’m up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with another Trinity Stamps sneak peek! I had so much fun creating this card. I hope you like it.

Everything from this card came from the upcoming set called Classroom Cuties…plus so much more! This set is packed with fun that is super versatile for so many occasions! I’m excited for you to see the whole thing!

Gotta love that kiddo with his frap, ready to tackle the day! And that row of pencils was so much fun to put together! Trust me, I have many a plan for that pencil image. You’re going to see a lot of it!

Trinity Stamps – Sneak Week

Welcome to another fabulous sneak week featuring amazing new products coming to the Trinity Stamps store on Friday!!! Eeeekkk!!! I’m so excited for you all to see everything! It’s so fun!

Today I’m going to start with an upcoming set called The Bright Side. I think you’ll see the reoccurring theme from last release…and it’s adorable!

To create my card, I inked up a panel with the diagonal stripes slimline stencil, flipped it over and did it again. I went a little heavier with the ink on the bottom left and top right corners for some added interest. I adhered it to a card front and used the smallest nested hearts die to cut a window in my card.

On the inside of the card, I inked up a little sky and ground for my images. These are colored with copics and I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I thought it was fun to have the scene on the front and inside of the card so I brought some of the butterflies to the front of the card along with the sentiment.

Let’s look at the front again for fun. ❤ It’s too cute not to!

For finishing touches, glued some Scuba Dive confetti bits around and added glossy accents to the flower centers that are in front of the gnome’s eyes. I also added glossy accents to bits of the butterflies for extra interest.

Isn’t this guy just the cutest! And I absolutely love him peeking through that heart window! Can’t wait to share more with you! Stay tuned for more fun through the week!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Trinity Stamps – Just For You

Hello everyone! I’m up on the Trinity Stamps blog today sharing this absolutely awesome card featuring some new and some older stamps and dies. This card started as a simple idea and completely grew a mind of its own. And I’m so glad it did. It’s so much fun!

Originally, my idea for this card included the Just For You gnome and Mr. Snailman but it quickly grew to include my favorite Mouse House too! I stamped my images out and spent some time coloring. It was wonderful! Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and moved to the background.

For that I cut the middle Slimline Stitched Panel die from a white panel and then cut that panel into sections with the Slimline Scenic Borders. According to each panel, I inked them up a little differently with distress oxide inks and spritzed it all with water. I die cut a second panel and adhered all my levels to that for stability.

Then, using liquid glue I adhered all of my images to the background and moved on to finishing touches. I added white gel pen accents to most of the images and then moved in with my glossy accents.

Those are scattered about on things like the hearts, package bows, mushroom spots…kind of random but throughout the whole design. Then I thought it would be good to bring in the black glaze pen on the mice eyes and noses. I love what this little bit of dimension and glossy does for them.

Seriously, all the way up until now, I hadn’t actually planned out my sentiment placement. Totally winging it! Since the awesome Trinity Stamps sets almost always die cut the sentiments too, I decided to trail my sentiment throughout the card design, hoping it would draw the recipient to enjoy the whole design. Then I added a little Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the words.

Finally, I die cut the largest Slimline Stitched Panel in purple and adhered it to a white card base that measures 3.5×8.5 and popped my scene panel up with foam tape. I also decided to pull from the fun colors I used and make a coordinating envelope in yellow with the Slimline Envelope Builder dies.

If you’ve followed me for very long, you know I like full cards…and I LOVE THIS ONE! It’s got so many fun things to see. Those playful mice and that sweet gnome bearing gifts, finishing it off with Mr. Snailman delivering some happy mail! I hope you enjoyed today’s card and find some inspiration to create something wonderful!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Birch Press Design – Slimline Card Set

Hello again! I’m over on the Birch Press Design blog today with this fantastic set of slimline cards featuring a few stencils, the Cora layering dies and the new Jumbo Lingo word dies! They are fantastic and I thought slimline cards were the perfect way to showcase them!

The whole set started with the thanks card and I just kept going with ideas, so I kept creating. They were so fun to put together. Here’s a close up of each one.

After this one, I thought I would make 3 of the same card, just different colors and switch out the sentiment but that last .2 seconds and I had other ideas I wanted to try.

I thought it was so fun to try this other stencil, inking it up lightly and moving it around the panel. I love how it turned out. And that happy sentiment is perfect for the brightness of this card.

And for this last card, I knew I wanted to try some masculine colors which turned out so cool! By the time I had created 2 landscape cards, I thought it would be fun to break the sentiment free of the shadow part and use it vertically. I love it!

Trinity Stamps – Hope to Sea You Soon

Welcome back! I hope your week is going well. We’re on the downward end and sailing into the weekend now.

I had an idea pop into my head that I just couldn’t wait to try out and today I finally get to share it with you. It features some new and some older Trinity Stamps prodcuts. Get your gear, we’re heading under the sea again.

The idea that I most wanted to try was layering my distress oxides with the waving hello stencil so that’s where I started. I cut a 3.5×8.5 panel and blended mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch and seedless preserves. I spritzed it with water and blotted it dry. Then I used both layers of the waving hello stencil with the same colors over the top. I love how this turned out! I inked up another little panel with tea dye and gathered twigs and die cut it with the scenic borders for some sand.

Next, I grabbed shark bait, ocean reef builder and turtlely awesome stamp sets to ink up and get coloring. After that I die cut them with the coordinating dies and started building my scene.

After I decided on placement, I started adhering everything down with liquid glue. I specifically left room for my sentiment in the middle of my scene so I made sure to stamp and cut that out from shark bait as well.

After building my scene, I thought it would look nice to frame it up so I pulled out the scalloped frame die from the slimline envelope builder set and cut one out in white to glue on top. Then I moved on to finishing touches.

For those, I added unicorn Stickles as bubbles and also on some of the coral on the sea floor. Then I gave little bits of shiny to all the critters with glossy accents. Last, I added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to some of the plants and the sentiment.

I love how all of these sets go together so well and using them on a slimline card gives you so much real estate to build an awesome scene.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
