Trinity Stamps: Kind Thoughts are Flowers from the Heart

Hi everyone!

I am back today with a second post and  I am sharing a mini slim line card using few of the new Trinity Stamps products: Buttercup Blossoms stamp set along with the coordinating dies and the Dainty Scallop Edge Mini Slimline die set 
You can also head over on the Trinity Blog to see this post and also find more inspiration from other designers!

To make the card start by die cutting three of the largest mini slimline dies. I do this is to add more dimension to my card instead of using foam. Also this way the card is sturdier and handles going through the mail better.

Next, stamp, color and die cut two of the flower borders from the Buttercup Blossoms stamp set. Also die cut 6 additional pieces to use to stack up the images for added dimension. Same way like we did for the mini slimline panel.

Using adhesive stack up the layers. You can see the achieved dimension below.

Stamp sentiment on blue card stock (same color as your mini slim line layer) and emboss in white. Die cut using the Slimline Series: Stitched Strips Die set. Adhere additional strips on the back to create dimension.
Assemble your card by adhering the flower borders and the sentiment, then adhering to a mini slimline note card ( I create mine using 6 1/2" x 7" piece of white card stock and score the 7" side at 3 1/2")

To finish your card add few Amber Glow Rhinestones Embellishment Mix.

Spellbinders: Be Merry Collection

 Hi everyone!

It's the 20th of the month which means new Spellbinders release! This release is all about Christmas, the Holiday Season and winter and it's amazing! Today I am sharing three cards using the new Be Merry Collection. 

For my cards I used the Chill Bear and Dancin' Gnome die sets along with the Gifts of Christmas Sentiments Hot Foil set. I created three different sizes of cards: standard slimline, A2 and mini slimline card. These dies are so much fun to play with.

For my first card I used both the bear and the gnome. I also paired it up with the Confetti background glimmer plate and also used the new Color Block scenic scape.

For my second card I  used the Chill bear die set to create the A2 card, also combined it with the color block scenic scape and the Gift of Christmas Sentiments Hot foil set (I am loving this Poppy Fields red card stock from Spellbinders!!!) I also added Sparkle silk to the snowflakes. 

Last but not the least is a gnome mini slimline card. Besides the products from the Be Merry Collection I also used the

Ellen Hutson: Aloha New Release

 Hi everyone!

I am back today with couple cards using the brand new release from Ellen Hutson. It's all about Hawaii and it's so much fun. I used all three new stamp sets to create the two card below. 

For my first card I used the Mondo Anthurium set! I stamped the image on Arches Cold Press watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I watercolored with Karin Brush Pro markers and trimmed it down to 4" x 5 1/4" Next I stamped the sentiment on Hero Arts Pitch Black card stock and embossed in white. Trimmed to size and assembled the card. 

For my second card I used the Aloha stamp set and the coordinating dies, along with the It's Jungle set and also the coordinating dies. I stamped the images on watercolor paper, and like in the previous card I colored with the Karin Brush Pro markers. Once colored I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next I used Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink to apply to my background panel. Adhered the images and stamped the sentiment in black. Then adhered my panel to a top folding white note card.

All the supplies used are listed on the bottom of this post (affiliate links may be used at absolutely no cost to you)
