Thinking about you

8/14/22 CAS Weekly Favorite at Splitcoast Stampers!

Hi everybody! Hope you’re having a great day! We’ve been out of town today toolin’ around with a good friend and just got home a little bit ago, so thought I’d pop on to share a pretty inspiration project for Trinity Stamps that I made yesterday. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Trinity Stamps just released their Summer Blooms Floral Papercrafting Kit which is their first-ever kit, and the First Bloom stamp set and First Bloom die set are available as a discounted add-on bundle (20% off) if purchased with the kit. I already have the First Bloom stamps and dies in my stash, so while I’m waiting for my kit arrive, I went ahead and created a CAS friendship card with vibrant orange florals. I also used Topaz Twinkle Embellishing Mix, and the front and inside sentiments are from the Succulent Banner stamp set. Oh, and I used Arteza alcohol markers for the first time to color this image. I had three other brands of alcohol markers taking up space in my studio that I wasn’t completely happy with (colors and/or quality), so I bought a large Arteza set and donated the other three. So far, so good! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size landscape top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Orange cardstock which I layered together and then adhered to the card base. I stamped the image from the First Bloom stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink, colored it with alcohol markers, and cut it with the coordinating First Bloom die set. I then layered the die cut image on three more plain die cuts for some dimension, and adhered the piece to the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Succulent Banner stamp set and added several small gemstones from Topaz Twinkle Embellishing Mix.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a wide strip of CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock and a strip of skinny black pattern washi tape. I stamped the sentiment from the Succulent Banner stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Basis Orange cardstock.

And one more peek… I’m so in love with this stamp set! Now I can’t wait to get my hands on the new papercrafting kit because I know the stamps, dies, ink cubes, papers, storage pocket and rhinestones are going to be just as amazing! Woo-hoo!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
