It’s hard to believe it has been 4 fantastic years already since we launched Trinity Stamps. Time flys when you are having fun! I have been so blessed to meet so many amazing people on this journey so far. I am so proud of the growth of this little company and overjoyed for the opportunity to help fuel creativity and spread happy mail smiles.
I have a few projects to share with you! I don’t get a lot of time in my craft room with being so busy behind the scenes but I took a few days off to create and it felt SO nice! Here are a few of the cards that I made with the newest release!
This adorable stamp, illustrated by my friend Dani @ Love,Dani Studios is one of my favorites. It’s a saying my kids used to use all the time so I thought it would make a perfect encouragement card for one of them.
I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and used my watercolors to paint the inside and outside of the sentiment. I cut it out using the coordinating die set as well as the bonus lemon and pea pod dies for the inside of the card. I used the Lemon and Leaves stencil set to create the background behind the sentiment cut out. The sentiment on the inside, “You got this”, came from the 4×8 A sentiment for almost everything stamp set. I really love the blue and the yellow together with the added pop of the green, don’t you?
I made this quick slimline birthday card using the new Slimline Swirly Birthday sentiment and some balloons from the new Celebration Balloons die set. The background was made using the Trinity Stamps Puffy Cloud stencil and some Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink. Once the ink dried on the background I sprayed some shimmery glitter spray from my stash.
I cut out several balloons from the Celebration Balloons Die set and then I added the letters for HAPPY using the Trinity Stamps Graham Cracker Alphabet Die Set cut out of gold glitter cardstock. I cut the Swirly Birthday sentiment out of the same gold cardstock as well as each of the colors I used for the balloons.
I stacked all of the layers of the Swirly birthday sentiment together in rainbow order, leaving the glitter piece for the top. This added dimension as well as a fun stacked rainbow effect from the side. I tied on metallic gold embroidery thread to the balloons and secured the string with tape on the backside of the card.
Celebration Balloon Birthday Slimline Card
This time I used the Balloon celebration stencil set to make another slimline card. I used the largest balloon in the stencil set and some Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink. For the shadow layer I used Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink. I cut out the panel using the Trinity Stamps Slimline Modern Embossed Die set and mounted it on a panel of silver glitter cardstock. The sentiment was cut out using the Graham Cracker Alphabet Die set as well as the Simply Sentimental: Birthday coordinating die set. I added a sprinkling of the new Silver Sparkle Glitter Rhinestones and some white sparkle twine for the balloon string.
Party Balloons Hot Foil Layered Shaker Card
For this A-2 sized card I used the Cut & Foil Party Balloons die set. I never realized how easy it was to foil on transparency. It was SO fun. I just played around with different foils and different balloons on the Spellbinders foil transparency. I picked out a few of my favorite silver and gold balloon pieces and cut two circles. I took another piece of white cardstock and foiled balloons on that for the background making a third circle. I stacked these layers together with thin foam strips and added some Oh My Stars and Gold Stars Confetti in the two circle stacks.
Because this circle stack was so thick and I didn’t want the foam tape showing on the side, I cut a thin strip of holographic paper to wrap around the outside. I also cut a circle frame out of holographic cardstock using the Trinity Stamps Modern Embossed Circle Stack Die Set to layer on top.
I added the word Happy from the Simply Sentimental: Happy Coordinating Die set (stacked three layers) along with the shadow layer in vellum. The bottom Birthday sentiment was cut out of the same holographic cardstock using the Simply Sentimental: Birthday Coordinating Die Set.
I stamped the same font style birthday sentiment on the inside using the 4×8 Simply Sentimental:Birthday stamp set in a light gray ink. I finished off the card with a few Silver Sparkle Glitter Rhinestones and Golden Glass Glitter Rhinestones. This card was a little more time consuming than the rest but lots of fun to make!
Little Layered Ice Cream Cone Slimline Shaker
For this card I used my distress oxide inks and the Little Layered Ice Cream Cone stencil (and coordinating die) to make some yummy ice cream cones. I cut out the ice cream cones and layered them on some white glitter cardstock. I had to trim the bottom of the cone just slightly to fit. I cut out a frame using the Slimline Modern Embossed Die Set from the same white glitter cardstock and used that to make a shaker front. For the confetti I used the new Seashore confetti mix along with Strawberry Ice confetti and Rock Candy Confetti. The Happy sentiment is from the Simply Sentimental: Happy Coordinating die set and the Birthday is from the Simply Sentimental:Birthday coordinating Die Set
New Freebie Die, Bitty Botanicals 1
This last card uses the brand new freebie die from Trinity Stamps. This die set comes free with any order totaling $25 or more. There is a series of 4 dies and you can always check on which one is shipping by looking at our sales and promotions page HERE. This card was made using only the dies in this bitty set along with the 4 bar Card and Envelope builder die set and the 4×8 A sentiment for almost anything stamp set. I added a bit of ink blending along the edges of the cut out dies and some Bubble Blower baubles (my favorite embellishment from Trinity Stamps)
