A Magical Hello!

Hi everyone! My name is Jeannie and I’m soooo excited to join the Trinity team! I’m here to share my first card with you on their blog today. I hope you love it as much as I do and I hope I can inspire you to pull out your sets to use them as well!

Personally, I love when a bunch of sets can be combined together because you are able to mix and match to create a ton of different types of cards. For today’s card, I couldn’t help myself and used four different sets to create a fun scene card.

For my background, I used a piece of dark blue cardstock along with three random distress oxides inks to create a galaxy background. You just put splotches of color all over the cardstock and darken up the edges with black. It always looks like such a mess but once you add white splatters (I use Copic Opaque White Ink), everything comes together. Trust me!

Next, I pulled out the Castle Scene Builder Die Set to use for my card. I love this set for the small details in this set and all the pieces can create a great scene. For the die pieces, specifically the castle and trees, I decided to color them up to add details and texture. I used the landscape die to cut out two pieces to create two hills. This comes together to create a gorgeous scene to go along with the galaxy background.

For the magical wizards, I used two sets: Magical Wizards and Wizard Friends. I wanted to dress the trio in robes with the scarves. It took a bit of masking but I just love this set for all the little accessories and details. You can mix and match to create fun outfit changes! I originally didn’t add the scarves, but this is easily fix because I stamped them out, cut them out, and added them right on top.

After I finished coloring them up using alcohol markers, I put this scene together quickly. I just love how the Castle Scene Builder Die Set created such a magical scene!

To finish off the card, I die cut the “Magical” sentiment, from the Magical Sentiments set that has coordinating dies, out of silver cardstock. For the text, I chose “You Are” from the stamp set and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder on black cardstock. I kept it as simple as possible since there was so much happening but I’m loving how this turned out.

I’ll definitely be pulling them out again to share more of my ideas with you!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this card.
