Trinity Stamps Blog Hop Banner

I am So excited to tell you that Trinity Stamps has finally released another fabulous line of Stamps, Dies, and LOTS of embellishments. There are also lots of new shop items added (plus more coming this week!).

If you don’t already know, we started the new release off with a blog hop on Friday and the fun is still happening! If you are coming to my blog for the first time be sure to click the links at the bottom of my post to go through both days of blog hop inspiration. Don’t forget to comment along the way because, friends…. there is prizes, FIVE of them. All of them are worth at least $25 (and some a lot more) Winner will be announced HERE on November 10th!

Now on with the show…

Today I am playing with our new Magical Wizards stamp set, a few stamps from the Wizard Friends set, Magical sentiment stamp set, magical sentiment die set, and the stars from the stand-alone castle builder die set. I am also incorporating some sentiments from Caffeinated Sentiments.

I was inspired by a Starbucks gift card I found. I thought it was absolutely perfect to pair with the Trinity Magical Wizards + Series.

So I started coloring the wizard’s head from Magical Wizards, and then one of the robes from wizard friends. I did some simple copic coloring and because I didn’t want white showing around my image, I opted to fussy cut instead of die cut. I cut the body off except for a piece that will glue behind the robe. I attached the two pieces with my Nuvo Smooth Precision glue and voila! Wizard is (almost) card ready!

I had made a green background by blending some various shades of Distress Oxide ink and then to make a floor to ground our character, I blended some ink into cardstock then ran it through a WRMK woodgrain embossing folder. I tried doing this with markers and drawing the floor in but it was taking away from my wizard scene too much so this was a much more subtle option.

I put some foam tape on the back of the wizard and set him and the floor piece aside.

Then came the embossing. I took several colors of WOW embossing and embossed all of the star, sparkle, and shine images from all three sets (Magical Wizards, Wizard Friends, and Magical Sentiments). As I was making my way through the swirl of stars and swooshes, I die cut different sizes of hearts from the Castle Builder die set.

once all the stamping and embossing was done, I took a damp rag and went along the stary magic trail and gave it even more texture. There were a few spots that still needed something so I took my embossing pen and added some dots here and there.

I added a sentiment from Caffeinated Sentiments, one of my personal fave… it was so appropriate given the fact a gift card was going inside.

I added a little Midas Touch Aqua Shimmer pen by Nuvo to the red part of the robe the wizard is wearing and I even embossed his wand gold.

Such a fun card right. I made the card 3×6 to fit these gold envelops I picked up at my local stamping store. I like the fun size, a nice change from the A-2 cards I usually make… But wait, there’s MORE!

Remember about that gift card I was telling you about? Bam! you’re magical! how perfect is THAT! I did a little stamp surgery so that I could make the sentiment ” Coffee and friends make a magical blend) In the Caffeinated sentiments, there is one that says Coffee & Friends make the perfect blend. All I had to do was snip off the make and the blend.

Taniesa Vlasak for Trinity Stamps Winter Release7

I stamped the first part directly to the card and the make a & Blend was stamped on a strip of white cardstock and then cut. I die cut the two layers of the magical sentiment die set (you can also use the stamp set to stamp in that shadow layer die) I glued those pieces to a very simple gold glitter pocket I made to hold the card.

Starbucks usually has fun seasonal and celebratory gift cards and so does a lot of other places, especially this year. How much fun is it to receive a gift inside a handmade card (which is a gift also!) Now is a great time to make a few of these types of cards to have on hand when you need to gift a card to someone.

Trinity Stamp’s GRAND OPENING blog hop!

Hi Friends!
Whew, It has been a very LONG time since I last posted here on the Crafty Pickle blog! Some of you might have been wondering where I went off to? Am I still crafting? Am I still BREATHING? LOL well, I assure you I am in fact breathing, however, I haven’t been crafting near as much as I would like but all for a really good reason! I have been busy preparing to launch a brand new company…

New Release! New Stamp Company! www.trinitystamps.com

Trinity Stamps has been on my heart for years and finally… today is the BIG day! It’s our official grand opening! We are launching with 9 new stamps and 8 matching dies! If you haven’t already seen the entire release you have to check it out at http://www.TrinityStamps.com.

¬†For today’s blog hop I created a project with the adorable 3×4 Lady Liberty stamp set. I also snuck in a sentiment from the Hello Sweet Friend stamp set. I thought the scripty font fit well with this little lady!

I colored her with some aqua copics, I thought it was fitting with it being Trinity Stamps Signature color! I used BG10, BG11, BG23, and a little bit of BG49 in the darkest shadows. Coloring this image was a breeze! Davina, the artist behind this particular stamp has made it very easy to color, She has drawn all of the folds and pleats for you. It made this very enjoyable to color! I can’t wait for the 30 day coloring challenge (which starts tomorrow! YAY!) so I can color the rest of the Trinity Stamp’s new release!

After I colored Lady Liberty and cut her out using the matching Die… I created a background scene by cutting some cityscape dies I had on hand and I used distress oxide inks plus a stencil to do some fun fireworks in the background. After coloring the background of where the fireworks were going to be, I laid down the stencil and used some Bo Bunny glitter paste. I love how sparkly everything is!

Once the background was dry, I added some rhinestones as well as some stars and other confetti from the Trinity Stamps Lady Liberty confetti mix. I love all the cute tiny stars, especially the 4 point ones!

To finish it all up I stamped the Missing You sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. Everything was accented by a little silver glitter paper. I think it tied it all in nicely, don’t you?

I also created a fun birthday coffee card using the Coffee with Character stamp set and dies  as well as the caffeinated sentiments stamp set for the Coffee Lovers Blog hop. That post can be found on the Trinity Stamps blog HERE but here is a photo of the card project.
