Trinity Stamps: January Release Sneak Peek

 Hello friends! Today I get to give you a sneak peak of a set from the Sending Smooches Release at Trinity Stamps. This is such a fun release, my ideas were overflowing!

If you want to see the process and listen to me talk, here is a video.

I took two images from the Best Place To Be stamp set to create this tweet mini slimline card. It is combined with several previously released dies and a sentiment stamp set.

The scalloped layer is cut from some white pearlescent cardstock.

The next layer is cut from white cardstock and some soft yellow ink blending is applied. 

Liquid Pixie Dust and gold spatters are added.

The bird and flower are colored with Copic markers and fussy cut. There are coordinating dies for this set, I just didn't have them yet when I made this card.

This "hello" is from the Slimline Envelope Builder die set, and the layers are cut from pink pearlescent cardstock and vellum, with a layer of die cut coaster blank behind it all to add dimension. 

This sentiment is from the A Sentiment For (almost) Everything stamp set. Super handy sentiment set!

 The inside of the card got some ink blending and another branch of flowers.

I hope this sneak peek has you excited to see what is coming in this release from Trinity Stamps!

Trinity Stamps: Embroider Your Stamped Images


Hello friends! Today I am sharing a crafty project that is not a card, but uses cardmaking supplies. I have been asked to join the Trinity Stamps Video Design Team for the next 6 months, and I am so excited! 


Here is the video of this project, go check it out!

I was struck with an idea to use Sulky Stick N Stitch to stamp an image and apply it to felt as a guide to embroider. Then used the coordinating die to cut it out. Trinity Stamps Blessing Bear stamps and dies, and Coffee Cozy Hand-Stitching die set made this project a snap!

Look at that sweet bear face! Wouldn't you love to make this cozy for your cup?

I used four different embroidery stitches:

  • Running stitch
  • Satin stitch
  • Daisy stitch
  • French Knot



I love that the stitching looks so even and beautiful!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget to leave me a comment, I love to hear what is on your mind.

Crafty Christmas Club: December

 

Merry Christmas!! Another year come and gone, and I hope you are spending today with at least one loved one. This challenging year has made us all think so much about what is really important, and has been so very serious. I think this whimsical and silly card is just what we need!

This is the last episode of the Crafty Christmas Club for 2020. I think it helped me keep up with the demand for Christmas cards. Well, if I actually got any cards sent out this year. It may be Christmas in January for those on my Christmas card list. Sorry, friends and family!


 As is becoming a habit, here is a video of the process for making this card!

 

This is a 5x7 card, or an A7 card.  I really love this size of card.  And it worked really well with the Trinity Stamps Slimline Black and White patterned paper pack. I love that pack. Bonus feature: you can foil it with your Mink or your laminator!

Santa is stamped in an alcohol marker safe ink, then colored with Copics. And die cut with the coordinating die for the Shake Your Merry Maker stamp set.

Santa adds some extra fun to this card by being on an Action Wobbler!

I had an urge to play with Perfect Pearls, so I gold heat embossed this fun sentiment image on black cardstock, then painted it with Interference Red and Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls. 

There is some extra shimmer added to the baubles in the image with some Nuvo Glitter Drops in Honey Gold.


The last bit of silly fun is the disco bauble and the sentiment from the stamp set, stamped and die cut before gluing inside the card. The bauble is silver heat embossed, then colored in with the Silver Wink of Stella. 

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday!

The rest of the blog roll is at the end of this post, so don't forget to check it out.

Trinity Stamps- A Merry Box of Christmas

 

 

Merry Christmas! I hope you are more prepared for the holidays than I am 😄 But I am prepared enough to have this special Christmas card to share with you.

Here is a video showing the entire process.

I took the Slimline stamp set All Spruced Up and the coordinating dies to make all of the images for this card. The main image in that set creates a frame of pine boughs. They are stamped in Evergreen Bough and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxides, then heat embossed with a clear sparkling embossing powder. 


There are poinsettia, pine cone, and berry branch images in this set also, and they definitely work perfectly with the pine boughs on this slimline box card.

The wide box card die set makes this a really easy card to construct, and I love the stitched layers for all the panels!

Combining the berry branches and pine cones really helps fill this out.

One of my favorite features in the Wide Box Card die set is the large rectangle stitched panel for the flap that does not fold down. I used it on both sides of the flap. This is a great place to write your personal message.

I did use the stitched panel to cut the pine bough layers also, so everything matches up just beautifully!

You can really see all the sparkle and shine with the embossing. And the Auburn Pearl Nuvo Crystal Drops on the poinsettia centers.

That gorgeous sentiment is the Scripty Christmas die set, and I adore it with all of the Mirror Card from Tonic Studios. This particular color is Fire Stone Red. 

What do you think of the stamping on the kraft cardstock? Do you love it, hate it, or no particular feelings about it at all? 

And Merry Christmas to you all!!

Festival of Christmas: Tags Galore

 

Playing with some Hero Arts goodies to make some fun and whimsical tags. Who even needs the gifts?!
 

 The Festival of Christmas is back and the theme this week is tags of all kinds, easy peasy to "save it for the tree next year"!
 

 I detail the entire process for both of these tags in the video. Go check it out, if you like this kind of thing 😀


This tag is created using the November 2020 My Monthly Hero (MMH) kit. If you already have it, great! Because it is all sold out. Sorry guys. 
 
The background is stamped with an ombre inkpad, looks like Pool Party, Thistle, and Blue Hawaii reactive inks.
The snowman is stamped in Hero Arts Intense Black ink and coloreds with Copic markers. 
 
The sentiment is from the kit, and the embellishments are from a couple of previous MMH kits. 
 
The tag die is from the Hero Arts Infinity Tags die set. 


This tag uses the Hero Arts Winter Tree and Animals stamps and dies. 
 
Mr. Fox is stamped in Rusty Hinge and Crackling Campfire Distress Oxides and cut with the coordinating die.
 
The tree is stamped in Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.
 
The snowflakes are stamped with Delicata Golden Glitz ink. 
 
The sentiment is stamped with embossing ink on a kraft colored lightweight cardstock, and Gold heat embossed. Then cut with the Honey Bee Stamps Sentiment Banner dies.

This tag is slightly bigger than the previous one, and is again cut with the Hero Arts Infinity Tags die set.

Trinity Stamps 12 Days of Christmas- Day 9- Shaker Tag with Felt

 


Hello friends! I know I have been MIA for a month, but I have big news. I was invited to be in the Trinity Stamps Video Design Team! And this is my first post for Trinity. And it is a Christmas themed series.


 
Check out all the details on this video, and head on over to the Trinity Channel and leave a comment on each video in this series to enter for a chance to win some prizes! Here is the nitty-gritty on the prizes:

 

"Trinity is celebrating the holidays with a 12 Days of Christmas Event.  Come visit us each day from Dec. 1st - 14th (excluding Sundays) for special posts each day on our Video Chanel and our Blog.  

We will give away two $75 gift certificates AND two $50 gift certificates for a total of $250 in GIVEAWAYS!  It is our way of saying Happy Holidays to you and sharing our appreciation to our wonderful customers!

I used 2 dies sets, some patterned paper, and felt mounted on sticker paper to create this shaker tag.


I love the snowy look that the shaker elements add to the tag. And how the sticker paper on the back of the felt makes them stay so crisp and easy to work with!
