Thankful for You

Hey everybody! Just shaking my head at the speed December is blowing by! We’ll very soon be welcoming a new year! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have an adorable Trinity Stamps Ambassador inspiration project to share today that I created with the Thankful for You stamp set and coordinating Thankful for You die set! Our Ambassador term is coming to an end on December 31st so this last project is a symbolic thank you to Trinity Stamps for having me (and the rest of the Ambassadors) along for the last six months! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis White 110# cardstock and layering panels of of the Stamp Anniething Autumn Life 6×6 double-sided papers which I cut at an angle and adhered to the card base with a strip of gold skinny washi tape at the seam. I stamped the focal image from the Thankful for You stamp set in brown ink on CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock, stamped again in Versamark and heat embossed with Hero Arts clear embossing powder. I colored the image with alcohol markers and cut it with the coordinating Thankful for You die set. I adhered the image to three additional plain die cuts for a little dimension, and then adhered it to the card front. I added several gemstones from the Topaz Twinkle Embellishment Mix to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock and embellished it with a strip of leftover patterned paper used on the front and a strip of the gold skinny washi tape. I stamped the sentiment from the Summertime Sentiments stamp set in brown ink and layered the panel on another piece of patterned paper.

And one more look… I’m so smitten with how this turned out, even though it is a Fall-themed card and it’s Winter here, lol! It was primarily the sentiment that I was after and it definitely works!

Let’s Get Together

Hi friends! And this is the fourth project I’m showcasing for the Trinity Ambassador “A Few of Our Favorite Things” Social Media Hop on Instagram starting at 6:00 AM PST this morning and ending at 11:59 PM PST on Friday, December 3rd! My main post is HERE. This is a clean and simple friendship card that is almost a one-layer card. I did add a panel behind the front flap so I’d have something to adhere the negative space of the cut-out to. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! This card features the Cafe Cup Cutout Die with sentiments from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set. It’s a super easy one that would be awesome to mass-produce to have several in your stash!

I cut a 5″ square top-folding card base and an extra panel from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock. I die cut the cup into the front flap using the Cafe Cup Cutout Die and adhered the extra panel behind the front flap. I die cut the cup once more from CutCardStock Curious Metallic Chestnut cardstock and adhered the negative space into the cut-out on the front flap. I stamped the front sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in brown ink and added some clear gemstones that I colored with a brown alcohol marker to complete the front.

I stamped the inside sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in brown ink directly on the inside flap without doing any layering. Very unusual for me, lol!

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! As I mentioned above, this card would be super easy to mass-produce to have several in your stash!

From Our Gnome to Yours

Hey peeps! This is the third project I’m showcasing for the Trinity Ambassador “A Few of Our Favorite Things” Social Media Hop on Instagram starting at 6:00 AM PST this morning and ending at 11:59 PM PST on Friday, December 3rd! My main post is HERE. Yep, you guessed it… another mini slim! I LOVE mini slimline cards – they are my new favorite size! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! This card features the From Our Gnome to Yours stamp set and From Our Gnome to Yours die set, and the inside sentiment is from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set. I can’t get enough of the Trinity Stamps gnomes, so it’s no wonder that two of my four projects feature gnome stamps and dies!

I cut the mini slim card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from the Christmas Holiday Print 6×6 paper pad using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I cut a felt doily almost in half and set the larger piece aside. I stamped the focal image from the From Our Gnome to Yours stamp set in black ink on Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers, and cut it with the coordinating From Our Gnome to Yours die set. I stamped and die cut the sentiment from the same stamps and dies, and adhered all the elements to the card front. The final touch was adding some gemstones from the Ruby Radiance Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick which is a “must” in your crafty stash!

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set and embellished it with a leftover strip of patterned paper used on the front. I stamped the sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock cardstock.

Coffee

Hi friends! This is the second project I’m showcasing for the Trinity Ambassador “A Few of Our Favorite Things” Social Media Hop on Instagram starting at 6:00 AM PST this morning and ending at 11:59 PM PST on Friday, December 3rd! My main post is HERE. I mentioned in my last post that I was in a mini slimline kind of mood… and three of my four projects were mini slims, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! This card features die cuts from the Coffee Cut & Foil Die Set and the inside sentiment is from A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set. I wanted a ‘country’ feel to this card so that’s why I chose not to use the foil plates. But stay tuned because it won’t be long before I do use them!

I cut the mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock along with a layering panel from Hot Off The Press Sunflowers 6×6 double-sided cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I die cut the coffee sentiment four times from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock using the die from the Coffee Cut & Foil Die Set and layered them together for a little dimension. I die cut the coffee cup from ivory and brown cardstock, the coffee beans from brown cardstock, and the mid section of the cup and beans from scraps of the patterned paper, and did some paper piecing to complete them. I adhered all the elements to the card front (using double-sided adhesive foam strips for the cup), and added a few gemstones from the Ruby Radiance Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick – which is a true life-saver when adhering gemstones!

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set and embellished it with a leftover strip of patterned paper used on the front and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the A Sentiment for (Almost) Everything stamp set in brown ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base. I had leftover heart die cuts so I pieced one together and adhered it to the inside panel.

And one more peek… super awesome coffee-loving card! Love the country feel!

I cut the mini slim card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from the Christmas Holiday Print 6×6 paper pad using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I hand-cut the highway from CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock and used a white paint pen to draw the dotted center line. I stamped the focal image from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set in black ink on Solar White cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers (and gold pen for the ornaments), and cut it with the coordinating Gnome for the Holidays die set. I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the headlights and the gold ornaments on the tree. I stamped and die cut the sentiment from the same stamps and dies, and adhered all the elements to the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set and embellished it with a leftover strip of patterned paper used on the front and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock.

Summer Gnomies

Happy Halloween, everybody! Hope you are having a great day, and if you are entertaining kiddos this evening, have fun trick or treating! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have an adorable Trinity Stamps Ambassador inspiration project to share this morning created with the super fun Wish You Were Here stamp set and coordinating Wish You Were Here die set! With Fall upon us (and in some cases Winter with snow, lol), I thought I could squeeze just one more Summer project in, and it’s a fun one! I absolutely love split panel cards and this one worked out great with the large gnomie image!

I cut a standard size A2 top-folding landscape card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from the Pebbles Inc. Basics 6×6 paper pad, cutting a portion out of the front flap. Using the Wish You Were Here stamp set, I did my old trick of stamping the image in black ink, stamping once more in Versamark over top the black ink and then heat embossing with clear embossing powder. I love coloring embossed images! I colored the image with alcohol markers and cut it with the coordinating Wish You Were Here die set and adhered it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment (from the same Wish You Were Here stamp set) in black ink on the front flap and added gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Amber Glow Embellishment Mix using the amazing Trinity Pick-Up Stick.

I embellished the inside with two coordinating prints and stamped the sentiment in black ink to complete the card.

And one more peek… I’m in love with this stamp set! Trinity Stamps has some of the cutest gnomes out there!

Let’s Get Together

Hi everybody! I hope you’re having a good weekend and maybe getting a little crafting in?! We are having some beautiful weather considering we’ve already had our first snow, but it’s pretty chilly in the northern part of the state. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have a fun Trinity Stamps Ambassador inspiration project to share this morning featuring the free cup dies that are tucked into Trinity Stamps orders. They are so adorable and I thought stacking them on a mini slimline would be perfect! I’ve had this card made for a couple weeks and I kind of wish I had waited until this past week to receive my mini slimline layers die set! Oh well… ;)

I cut the 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels cut from CutCardStock Pop-tone Spearmint cardstock and patterned paper from the Summer Blooms Floral Papercrafting Kit which I adhered together and then adhered to the card base. I die cut the three cups from other patterned papers in the kit and adhered them to the card front in stacked fashion. I stamped the sentiment from the A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set, trimmed it and adhered it to the card front with an adhesive double-sided foam strip. The finishing touch was adding gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Morganite Muse Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Stamps Pick-Up Stick (which is a lifesaver!).

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Pop-tone Spearmint cardstock. I embellished the white panel with pattern paper and cardstock strips, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set in pink ink, and adhered the panel to the green layer and then to the card base.

And one more look… I’m digging mini slimline cards these days and really love how this turned out with the stacked cups!

You’ve been Boozed

Hi friends! How’s the weather where you are? We had our first snow day before yesterday and it sure was a beautiful sight! It snowed a little bit more today but it didn’t stick, so we’ll see what tonight brings! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I indulged myself in some super adorable Trinity Stamps Halloween stamps and dies, and have a fun Trinity Stamps Ambassador inspiration project to share this evening! I made this card a couple weeks ago and have had so much going on that I haven’t had a chance to post it, so I’m chomping at the bit! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Dark Purple cardstock and Hot Off The Press purple gingham patterned paper which I adhered together. I added embellishing strips cut from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock to the bottom of the panel. Using the Creepy Cocktails Die Set, I die cut the glasses and extra elements from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutCardStock Pop-Tone Grape Jelly cardstock, CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock, and CutCardStock Curious Metallic Night cardstock, and adhered them to the front panel. I stamped three of the sentiments from the Trick or Drink Stamp Set in purple, orange and green ink, trimmed them, and adhered them to the front panel. I added strips of clear gemstones to the top and bottom of the green embellishing strip, and then added Glossy Accents to the bubbles and tiny black gemstones as the spider’s eyes.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of the purple gingham paper and red, green, and dark purple cardstock. I stamped another sentiment from the Trick or Drink Stamp Set in black ink and layered the panel on dark purple cardstock.

And one more peek… how stinkin’ cute is this?! I fell in the love with these stamps and dies the moment I laid eyes on them! So fun!

Friends Are Flowers Envelope Box Card

Hi friends! A very Happy Friday to you – I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this afternoon with a Trinity Stamps Ambassador inspiration project that I finished up yesterday afternoon which I’m super stoked to share! If you know me, you know I absolutely love fun folds, and box cards are at the top of the list of my favorites! Trinity Stamps recently released their Summer Blooms Floral Papercrafting Kit and I had a blast stamping, coloring and die cutting all the blooms in this kit for my envelope box card! This is my own design that I created with my WRMK Envelope Punch Board and this one does not fold flat for mailing like the typical box card (which I did for more stability) but I plan to work on an envelope box card design that does fold flat, so stay tuned! ;)

I cut the envelope base from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock, scored and punched it with the WRMK Envelope Punch Board, and covered the flaps with gingham paper. Using the Summer Blooms Floral Papercrafting Kit, I stamped the blooms (in multiples) on Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies (also included in the kit), and arranged them in layers on the front and inside of the box. I stamped a sentiment from the Friends Are Flowers stamp set, trimmed it and layered it on black cardstock. The final step was adding gemstones from the Summer Sparkles Embellishment Mix (also included in the kit) with the Trinity Pick-Up Stick which really added some pretty sparkle.

Looking at the overhead shot, you can see there are three layers of blooms. I embellished the back of the box with a strip of the pink gingham paper and a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. Using stamps from Supporting Script Sentiments stamp set and Just For You stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in black and pink ink.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! It took a little while to stamp, color and die cut all the blooms, but it was well worth it!
