Coffee Cup Tree Card

Coffee cup

Today I’m altering a tall dome to fit on Trinity Stamps’s Coffee Mug Card die set. I have a video on Trinity Stamps YouTube channel here.

I wanted to combine the Coffee Mug Card Die with the Tall Shaker Dome Set , but unfortunately, the Tall Dome is too large, so today I’m altering it to fit.

Briefly, I snipped the dome on each side and altered the acetate sheet as well to fit the smaller size.  I had previously prepared the Layered Pine Stencil panel as shown in the video here. I adhered the coffee cup sequins to the tree, put the dome together and adhered it to the card base.  Adding clay snowflakes and white gel pen snow finished the scene.

Thank you for stopping by!

Supplies: Mini Coffee Cup sequins to arrive soon.

Snow Couple Light up Pendulum Card


Today I’m making a pendulum card that lights up.  Simon Says Stamp has an amazing promotion going on right now, if you purchase any Miss Ink branded product, you will get the stamp set with this adorable snow couple free!  I’m using this stamp on my project today!



To prepare the card:

  1. I first prepared a few elements before putting the card together. I die cut a 5 inch diameter circle from 110 lb Neenah solar white cardstock & white glitter cardstock and 2 5 inch diameter circles from blue vellum.  I die cut a few snowflakes from glitter cardstock, and stamped and fussy cut the image & sentiment.  I cut the glitter cardstock circle in half and adhered one half to one of the blue vellum circles. I also folded the Neenah cardstock circle in half to form the card base. Finally, as shown above, I pulled out an EZ light element from Pear Blossom Press.CBK4
  2. I copic colored the image with the copics shown above.CBK3
  3. I adhered the copic colored image to the blue vellum/glitter cardstock piece and placed the snowflakes where I wanted them to be, so that when I turned the entire piece over, I could map out where I wanted the LED elements.  Since the EZ light element has 3 LED lights, I placed one LED in each snowflake and taped each in place.  I placed the button mechanism upside down, so that it would be in the correct position and facing the front of the card. The button mechanism is a little bit bulky, so I placed double sided foam tape all around the bottom of the card to protect the entire light mechanism.CBK2
  4. The second vellum blue circle was adhered to the card base, and then the light mechanism piece was adhered to the vellum/card base so that the light mechanism is sandwiched between the 2 pieces of blue vellum.  Adhering the final snowflake with the “push here” piece finished the card.

Layered Pines Slimline Card


Hi there!  Today I’m up on the Trinity Stamp YouTube channel with a small tutorial on how to use the layered pine stencil set that was released yesterday! You can find the video here.

Briefly, I used die-cut the scalloped slim line card die from Lawn Fawn pink speckled cardstock and the stitched slim line card die from Neenah solar white cardstock.  I taped the layered pines stencil on the stitched card panel and ink blended evergreen bough distress ink on the first layer.  Using the second layer, I ink blended pine green dye ink from Papertrey Ink.  For the third & final layer I spread a glitter paste from Couture Creations- I ended up spreading three layers of the glitter paste to get a “white” snow on top of the branches.  You can heat emboss with white embossing powder, but I found that it is such a stark contrast to the green that it looks less realistic than the glitter paste.  Make sure that you either dry each ink blended layer with a heat gun or make sure you leave it out to completely dry before adding the next layer on (I leave my cardstock out to dry).  Finally I used scattered straw distress ink for the star & rays of light and did a final layer of gold embossing paste on top.

I die cut images and sentiments from the Winter Friends stamp and die set and copic colored them.  Cutting a partial panel of glitter cardstock using the slim line dies, I adhered it to the bottom of the panel.  I ink blended spun sugar and scattered straw distress inks around the tree and prior to adhering all the components.
