Trinity Stamps New Release

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by for the Trinity Stamps new release blog hop. One reader will be randomly selected to receive a $25 Trinity Gift Card and an embellishment goodie bag. So leave a comment along the blog hop (list below).

I hope you’ve been enjoying all the new items and get inspired to create. I actually have three projects that I shared sneak peeks of throughout the week.

The first card was a fun and interactive one using Puddle Jumpers. I used masking to split the images so they were both a standalone image. I wanted the little jumper separate from the puddle he was jumping in.

I added a hidden slider right behind the jumper so when you pulled up, he’d jump up and when the slider was pushed back down, he’d land right in the puddle.

I also added a few more puddles, added a ground and a sky. Usually when there’s some interactive element, I tend to keep the rest pretty simple.

For the second card, I used the Spring Fling Florals stamp set, which I absolutely adore since it allows you create your own bunches of flowers. It’s amazing and definitely going to be a fan favorite. For the card, I chose to stamp and mask a ton of these images to create a circular arrangement.

For the sentiment, I used the Thank You Sentimini set. It looked very simple so I added a few Unicorn Tears Rhinestone mix just to accent it. The background was really simple to create. I used a piece of dark grey cardstock and stamped a variety of the images all over to cover randomly.

I just love how this one turned out.

For my final card that I’m sharing today, I focused in on the Hello Sentimini to use for a card. Usually when cards are full of sentiments, I only will pull it out when I need something very specific. Here, I decided to utilize most of the sentiments to create a background by heat embossing in white and then using distress inks to create an ombre look.

I portioned off the card since I wanted that space for the large “hello” in the set. I just used an alcohol safe pen to help draw in the borders. The borders really help break up the card since the background with the sentiments are a bit busy. I also used a variety of sizes and colors of the Shiny Baubles to accent the hello. I really love this embellishment mix because of the different colors, so I was able to pick and choose the ones I wanted to use.

This is one of my favorite sentiment filled cards and I hope this idea helps step outside of the normal use for sentiments.

Be sure to stop by the entire blog hop to get ideas for what you could use the new products for. Of course, I’ll be creating more from this new release but I really hope you love it as much as I do!

Bubble Tea Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining me on this collaboration hop with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers & Trinity Stamps for National Bubble Tea Day. One reader will be randomly selected to receive a $25 Trinity Gift Card. Leave your comments on all of the participating blogs (list below) by Wednesday, May 8th at 11:59pm Pacific, then look for the winner announcement here on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers‘ blog the following week.

Let’s start off by saying that if you know me, you know that I’m a HUGE boba (also known as Bubble Tea) fan! So when it was brought to my attention that it was National Bubble Tea day… I just HAD to create a cute card that just goes with it!

Boba stamps are hard to find but super easy to create. You just need to draw in boba in any coffee cup. There is one in the Seasonal Sweetie stamp set and I took advantage of it. Yes, this set is more for Fall and Winter and I know we’re in Spring but I didn’t care. I wanted to have a little girl drinking boba! I manipulated her just a little to remove her scarf.

I stamped out the coffee cup, added a straw and added boba to her cup! It worked perfectly. I actually fussy cut the boba as well as the main girl. I used an Exacto Knife to cut around her hands so I could insert the boba cup. It worked out so perfectly.

For the main boba cup image, I just drew this out to the match the boba cup in her hand. It was a lot easier than I expected and so I wanted to make the drink into a shaker as well. I used the same Exacto Knife to cut the opening in the cup. I used some distress ink on the back panel to make it the color of milk tea. I totally decided to use the Trinity Stamps Coffee Bean Heart Sprinkles as the shaker bits.

For the background, I used distress ink and a confetti stencil, that made it look like boba all over. It also added interest to the background without taking away the spotlight.

I needed a sentiment to finish this off and the huge variety from Caffeinated Sentiments was perfect! The only word that was missing was boba, but I noticed it wouldn’t be too hard to piece together from the letters in the set. I went with something punny, and came up with “Let’s Get Boba, It’s been Oolong!”.

I really enjoyed creating this card and love how it turned out! Now off to go get myself a boba. My favorite is a jasmine milk tea with cream puff. I love mini boba but it’s so hard to find. What’s your favorite?

Remember to continue on the blog and hop around for a chance to win a prize! The next person on the hop is: Shanna Slater.

Enjoy her creations along with everyone else’s and good luck! 

Aquarium Shadow Box & Planner Layout

Hello, hello! I’m back today with a super fun card I made along with a video showing the process for creating this card. Today, I’m featuring The Sassy Club’s, Under the Sea and Sea Creatures. All supplies used will be listed at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

I generally love interactive cards and this one is no different. It’s only a little different in the sense of what paper medium I’m using. Today, I’m using mainly acetate to create my card.

For my video today, I’m focusing more on putting together this aquarium, which is actually really easy and putting all the elements together to form this card so I hope you enjoy it.

It’s also part of a video hop and my particular channel will be giving away a $25 gift certificate of your choice (US and International). You’ll just need to leave a message on my YouTube. For an extra entry, head over to my instagram, follow me there and leave a comment on this card’s post. The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate of your choice and this is open to US or International. Entries for the giveaway will close on April 20. The winner will be announced on April 21. Good luck!

Additionally, if you’ve been following me on Instagram already I’ve started including my planner layouts inspired by my cards. I’ve been really obsessed with this and I love planner stamping. I use one additional set for the planner, called Making Waves. It’s absolutely adorable and can’t wait to start next week!

Pawsome background!

Hi everyone! I’m back today to share a new card using one of the newest standalone die backgrounds from Penguin Palace, called Pawsome Background.

I was in a rainbow kind of mood, so I grabbed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and my distress oxide inks: Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet. These worked perfectly to create the rainbow effect I was looking for.

I used the Pawsome Background on black cardstock and because it’s black, the rainbow colors really popped through the die cut pattern. Since the pattern is very concentrated, I decided to also die cut a little rectangle to allow room for the sentiment. While doing so, I used two rectangle die cuts to create a little frame around the sentiment so it popped a little more. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the stamp set, My Best Pal. Additionally, I just had to add one of the doggie images to the card, so I chose the one with the balloons. I stamped and die cut it using the coordinating dies.

This worked perfectly to go with the sentiment and the background. I loved how this card turned out. It makes for such a wonderful and cherry look so I hope you enjoyed it too.

Scene Card | Penguin Palace

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today to share a card I created using the newly released Penguin Palace’s stamp set named, Let’s Get Crafty. This set definitely screams for a scene card and so I wanted to put one together.

I needed to create a space for this little artist to paint his painting so I set him up in a studio. Before I stamped out my final product, I actually stamped everything on a scrap piece of paper to see how the scene would look. This helped me figure out which masks I needed to stamp and cut out. There actually wasn’t too much and it was mainly on the table. However, I didn’t want to color the entire background using alcohol markers so I had to create masks for everything so I could use distress inks to help me color the background.

The desk scene was really cute because the set included the back of the little kitty the artist was drawing. The table was something that I had to draw in but if you looked at it closely, it’s just a few lines.

The scene itself is really cute and once I added the portrait, the only place to add a sentiment was right below and I think it was perfect.

I just loved how it turned out and I really adore this stamp set. It’s pretty versatile.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!

Pink & Main – 5th Birthday Blog Hop

Hi everyone! It’s Pink & Main‘s 5th birthday and it’s definitely worth celebrating with a blog hop. There will be FIVE random winners chosen from the comments left on our blogs. The winners will each win a $50 store credit. You will have to comment on all blog stops for a chance to win! Hop around and be inspired!

Today I’m using some new release items which center around this birthday celebration!

I am loving the new paper pad, It’s A Party; there are so many fun, celebratory designs. I was drawn to the Happy Birthday sentiment all over as patterned paper and wanted to use it. It’s a little busy but I just didn’t care because I just HAD to use it.

I wanted to use the hive and one of the cute bees from the Bee Day stamp set so I stamped and cut these using the coordinating dies. I didn’t need anything else since these images were a good size for my A2 card panel.

If it wasn’t busy enough, I still wanted to add another fun element to this card. I used one of the Scallop Circle dies to create a shaker window, lining it with acetate. I added the hive right on top of the cutout and added the bee at the lower bottom right. Even though the card was covered in the background sentiment, I wanted to use one of the sentiments from the set. I stamped it on a piece of white cardstock and matted it on black. The black breaks up the background and pulls your focus to the words.

For the shaker bits, I generously used the new Flower sequins. I love the mix of colors and it matched with the patterned paper. I used two layers of foam tape and it allowed the sequins to move around freely.

After the card was put together, I decided that I needed to add a border around the shaker to break up the background and pull your focus to the middle of the card as well. Everything was a bit busy so I used the same technique for the sentiment and cut out a scallop border using black cardstock and two of the scallop circle dies. This worked really well and it really finished off the card.

Thanks for stopping by and celebrating along with us! See you next time!

Hearts Scalloped Borders

Hi everyone! I’m back on the blog today with a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release focusing on the awesome standalone die named, Fancy Hearts Scalloped Borders and Dynamite Explosion Borders Set. This is releasing March 20, 2019.

For the card today, I wanted to just focus on the dies so I kept it very simple. I used Red Carpet cardstock to cut out the largest scalloped heart die. The weight and texture of the paper really makes this die look gorgeous. Since it cuts out really small hearts, I wanted those to pop so I matted it against white cardstock. There’s a smaller scalloped heart frame in this set and I used Splendorlux Argento cardstock, which is a smooth silver. It’s really pretty and not reflective. There are little heart dies in the die set and I used the Red Carpet cardstock for them to tie back the larger die.

I originally added just the sentiment from the Congratulations stamp set in the middle of the card to keep it simple but it looked a little too plain. I pulled out the Sweet Ride stamp set and stamped the couple in the bottom left corner along with little hearts from the set. Because I want the focus on the dies, I left the images uncolored.

Stop by the Penguin Palace’s blog also to see more inspiration from the design team.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

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.

Cross Stitched & Dots

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with sneak peeks for Penguin Palace’s new release focused on standalone dies. The sets I’m focused on today are Cross Stitched & Dots Large Rectangle Overlays and Cross Stitched & Dots Small Rectangle Overlays. Combined, these two sets provide you with a variety of sizes for every 0.25.

Because of this fact, I actually trimmed the Cross Stitched & Dots Small Rectangle Overlays and kept the Cross Stitched & Dots Large Rectangle Overlays intact. I used a bit of purple tape on the back of the larger set, and added in the rectangles from the small set.

Using three different colors of paper, I ran all the die cuts through together. This actually helped me create three different backgrounds. The colors I used are: Precious Gem, Princess Decor, and Navy Seal. These papers are lightweight. For sure, I wouldn’t define them as cardstock. They actually feel like tissue paper but definitely don’t tear as easily.

I combined the three sets in alternating colors and created three backgrounds. Since I have three cards to decorate, I kept everything really simple.

For the first one, I used the Congratulations sentiment from the Congratulations stamp set. I stamped it and heat embossed on vellum, backing it on white cardstock and place it right over the background.

The second, I used the dog with balloons images from My Best Pal along withe the Happy Birthday sentiment. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it on the Navy Seal paper and cut it into a banner. I added some white clouds to the card to give it a little more white space.

The third card, I used both the Birthday Unicorn stamp and die set. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment directly on the background, masking off a portion of it. For the rest of the card, I wanted to fill up the space so I used two of the unicorns from the set and die cut a bunch of confetti.

I always love when I can create multiple cards from one project and this came together pretty quickly.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

Congratulations

Hi everyone! I’m back today with with a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release stamp set that contains essential sentiments Congratulations.

This is one of those essential stamp sets that you can pair with many images, but I wanted to focus on what you can do with just this set alone. It’s super easy!

I chose a rainbow variety of distress oxide inks and stamped “Hooray” diagonally across. I definitely do not stamp straight without help and I actually just use a pencil to mark off lines in advance so I know where to stamp. Once the ink dries, you can easily erase it. It makes for such a pretty background.

To finish off the card, I stamped the large “Congratulations” on vellum using Versafine ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I ran this through my Xyron sticker marker and trimmed it down. This puts adhesive to the back of the vellum and you won’t notice it. The vellum softens the background so your focus is to the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

It’s Your Day!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release with another adorable set named, It’s Your Day.

In this set, there’s a variety of images but I focused on two of the characters and two accessory items. I wanted to create a small storyline of someone enjoying a glamorous day.

I stamped out the images I wanted to use on rectangles and I masked them off so I could use distress oxide inks to color up the background. I added both water and silver paint splatter to them for a bit more interest.

After coloring up the images, I lined the rectangle edges with a black pen creating a frame. I really loved how these came out. I wanted them to be the main focus but needed to add the sentiment for the card. I chose a piece of Smokey Eyes card stock and it has this really fine, pretty sandstone texture to it. It was a bit hard to picture, but you can notice it in the picture above. If you haven’t tried the cardstock from the store, I highly recommend it. I am really enjoying the subtle texture on the card stock that provides a little interest in the background but not deterring away from your main focus of the card.

I stamped the sentiments directly on the card stock, having no issues even with the texture and trimmed the card panel so I could mat it on black cardstock. I wanted to tie the black color back to the lined rectangles.

That’s it for today’s card. I really like the colors that pop against the neutral grey and I hope you enjoyed it too!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

My Best Pal

Hello everyone! Here is a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release with the awesome stamp set named, My Best Pal. This is releasing March 20th, so get ready!

I love the three doggies in this stamp set so I wanted to use all three of them. I didn’t want to create a full scene yet still have one. Sounds weird right?

To start off, I stamped out the two doggies in the set looking up. I masked one of them so it looked like one was standing behind the other.

Next, I stamped and masked the doggie with balloons on the top portion of the card. Using masking paper, I masked a circular area where the dog will be. With distress inks, I blended a few colors to create a nice background.

Using a few cloud die cuts, I added them to the circular area to add interest.

For the rest of the card, I just colored in the doggies and added some grass to the bottom. I trimmed the entire panel on the side by a quarter of an inch and mounted this one a blue card base.

Aren’t they all super cute? I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the items releasing!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!
