Pumpkin pocket card with goodies!


Hi there!  Today I’m up on the Trinity Stamps YouTube channel with a video about the Harvest Candy and Flower Bucket dies from Trinity Stamps new release!  The video is located here.  I’ve used the narrow card & envelope die to create a fun pumpkin pocket that houses a surprise.


  1. I die cut all the parts of the jack o lantern from various cardstocks, and die cut the narrow card panel as well. I also die cut the word “hello” from glitter cardstock the shadow die from regular cardstock using the Hello Senti Mini die set.
  2. To create a pocket, first I taped the black eyes & mouth to the jack o lantern.  I then glued 2 of the pumpkin shaped pieces together- one that had the face die cut and one piece that was whole to creat a pocket.  I then glued the remaining pieces to jack o lantern to create a look that had more depth.
  3. I then adhered everything to the narrow card die panel and tucked in a package of embellishments from Trinity Stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope that you will give the new dies a try!

Fall Floral Card


I cannot wait for fall and I think this card expresses that!  There is a very short video showing some of the process here.  I used the Candy Jar stamp set, the Candy Jar die set, Narrow Card/Envelope & Bookmark die set, the Winter Botanical stamp set, the Winter Botanical die set and the hello Senti-mini die set, as well as the blue lagoon confetti.  That is a lot of products for one card, but I love to mix and match Trinity’s amazing products!


  1. I die cut all the panels & envelope parts from the Narrow Card/Envelope & Bookmark die set, and adhered the panel to a 3 inch by 6 inch card base.  I show how to put the envelope together in the video as well- you have to die cut 2 side panels and the main envelope panel with the 2 flaps.
  2. I cut a smaller panel out of white Neenah cardstock, stamped part of the jar (masking the top part off) with Memento tuxedo black ink, and then prepared a mask of the jar itself, which I placed over the image on the panel.  I then ink blended distress oxide inks- scattered straw first, then spiced marmalade and finally festive berries at the corners to create a fall backdrop for the vase with the flowers.
  3. I stamped some of the Winter Botanical stamp set images with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder onto Smooth Bristol watercolor paper.  I stamped the same images in peeled paint distress oxide ink & rusty hinge distress oxide ink onto another panel of Smooth Bristol watercolor paper.
  4. I colored all the images either with peeled paint, festive berries, or rusty hinge distress oxide ink and then adhered them in the vase.  Finally I die cut the Candy Jar with acetate and with Lawn Fawn speckled blue paper to create a vase with a blue hue, die cut the word “hello” out of gold metallic paper & adhered the blue lagoon confetti.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Collaboration: Trinity Stamps & Miss Ink Stamps


Today I’m up on the Trinity YouTube channel with a video featuring a card made with products from Trinity Stamps and Miss Ink Stamps!  You can find the video here. I used the Trinity Stamps Mermaid Wishes stamp set and the Waves stencil from Miss Ink Stamps.

Briefly, I stamped the mermaid with Memento ink in tuxedo black on Neenah solar white cardstock and then fussy cut it and then copic colored it as shown in the video.  I used versamark ink to ink up the stencil on Lawn Fawn acetate sheets and then used several wow embossing powders and a heat gun to heat emboss the waves on the stencil.  I cannot say enough good things about the Lawn Fawn acetate- it holds up to heat from a heat gun and does not warp!  I then fussy cut the acetate sheets.  Not having white embossing powder (I only have the puffy kind), I had to improvise and use Hero Arts white unicorn ink and pearl white embossing powder to heat emboss my sentiment on navy cardstock.  A few clouds from the Trinity Stamps Puffy Cloud embellishment mix and a frame cut from antique gold cardstock finished the card. The waves move back and forth when you pull the tab- you will be able to see it best on the YouTube video!

Floral Scrapbook Layout


Today I decided to make a totally different project- a 12×12 scrapbook layout.  I haven’t made one in a while and it felt good to take one of my daughter’s photographs and make a layout with it.

I only used one stamp set- the Trinity Stamp Spring Fling Florals stamp and die set!   I made a video for the Trinity Stamps YouTube channel: link, that details everything, so I’ll keep the blog post concise.

  1. I took a piece of 12 x 12 white cardstock, placed the photo where I wanted it to be in the layout and then traced the corners with a pencil (the tracing gives me an idea where I should stamp) and then I stamped away- lots of floral images with Memento tuxedo black ink.  I started with the larger images and then filled in holes with the smaller images.
  2. I wanted the flowers to have the essence of watercolor, but having very limited time, I didn’t want to actually watercolor this time, so I stamped some images on watercolor paper from My Favorite Things and then die cut them.
  3. I always place images first on a card or layout to make sure I like where they are before I adhere them down.  That being said, I do still glue things down only to rip them off later- lol!  Here though, I did not have to rip anything off later, but I did have to adjust my layout, by cutting 1/4 inch off each side of the white 12×12 page and then originally I had planned to have the photo in the upper left side had to change it to the lower right.
  4. Finally I adhered all images, photos and thickers down with some sequins in between.  I am very happy with the way it turned out.


I hope that you are inspired to do your own 12×12 scrapbook layout!

Succulent Shaker Card

Hello!  Today I decided to make a slim card (dimensions are 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches) that included a long planter that doubled as a shaker element.  The stamp sets that I used today are the Fairy Wonderful and Succulent Sparkle sets. I’m sharing a very quick video today on the Trinity Stamps YouTube channel: link.



  1. I made a slim line card base (8.5 inches by 3.5 inches), an 8.5 inch by 3.5 inch panel out of Lawn Fawn spiffy speckled green cardstock and an 8.25 inch by 3.25 inch panel out of Lawn Fawn spiffy speckled purple cardstock (I used the “b” side).
  2. I copic colored several of the Succulent Sparkle and Fairy wonderful images.  The elongated planter was made by using 2 nested rectangle dies and trimming it down to size (I used a copper colored cardstock that I had in my stash).  I adhered acetate to the planter and then surrounded the edges with double adhesive foam to create a container for the sequins/shaker elements called “Lime-Aid green Confetti“.  First I adhered a piece of cardstock that had been heat embossed with Hero Arts sand embossing powder, then added the confetti and then encased the confetti with the shaker planter.
  3. I adhered all the images and finally adorned the card with a few “Blackberry Bliss Jelly Drop Hearts“.

And that is it- a simple card!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Sea Shaker Card



Today I am up on the Trinity YouTube channel (link to YouTube Video on the Trinity channel, and the video on my channel) showing how to make a sea shaker card using numerous products from the Trinity Stamps new release.  I was so excited to use the Scenes from the Sea stencil and a lot of my video focuses on the use of the stencil to create the backdrop.

  1. I stamped images from the Turtley Awesome, Ocean Reef builder and Mermaid Wishes stamp set and copic colored them.
  2. I blended a light layer of China blue distress ink on an A2 panel of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with the Trinity blending brushes.  Then I used the stencils to blend several colors of distress ink as shown in the video.  After all the layers were made, I used Glitter Kiss glitter paste to put a layer of glitter on each of the sea plants.  Finally I used some Wow embossing powder at the base of each sea plant and heat set it.
  3. Finally I cut the panel to create both a border and inner backdrop.  I adhered a piece of acetate to the border and then adhered double sided foam adhesive.  I glued the critters and some drops.  Placing sequins on the backdrop, I then adhered the border and closed up the shaker card.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you will try out the stencils- they are a ton of fun!
