Meowy Christmas Shaker Ornament

Cat ornament

Welcome! Today I’m making a Christmas ornament using the Tall Dome Shaker Set and filling it with items from the Layered Pine Stencil & Do Re Me Ow stamp & die sets. I’m on the Trinity Stamps YouTube channel here: video link.

Briefly:

  1. I stamped numerous elements from the Do Re Me Ow Stamp set with Black Versamark ink onto 110lb Neenah Solar White cardstock and die cut them with the Do Re Me Ow Die set.  I copic colored the cats with several colors as shown in YouTube video.
  2. I ink blended with the Trinity Stamps Blending buddy on the Layered Pines Stencil and fussy cut each tree out.  They aren’t symmetrical, so be sure to add a little ink to any white areas that show through.
  3. I die cut 2 domes out of white foam, 2 domes out of woodgrain cardstock, and 2 domes out of acetate sheets.  One creates a sandwich for each side (woodgrain dome, acetate sheet and foam dome), places the tree and shaker bits inside each half before gluing everything firmly. An embellishment for a label from the Seasonal Cup Decor & More die doubles as a place to attach a ribbon/twine to hang the ornament.

 

Thank you for stopping by; I hope that this inspires you to use the dome to make an ornament.  Please share and tag me on social media- I would love to see what you make!

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.

This release is so amazing and it is available in the store now!  Let’s get to the projects!

First up is something I wanted for a long time- a set of slim line card dies!  I love slim line cards and this die set makes it so easy to create a stunning card; 2 scalloped panels, 3 stitched panels, frames, grass, clouds- all can be coordinated perfectly to make a slim line card.  I’ve used the slim line scallop dies, stitched panel dies with the lovely tall shaker dome set,  nativity die set, shine brighter stencil, merry christmas senti-mini stamp set and noel word die to create this christmas card!

Sleepy Hollow Framed Scene

CABK-frame unlit

Today, I’m sharing some tricks and tips to using the 4 piece stencil pack “Layered Birch” stencils. I’m making a scenic wall hanging that with light-up elements that showcase the “Sleepy Hollow” stamp set & die set.  Please find my video tutorial on the Trinity YouTube channel here: link.

Briefly, I used heavy weight vellum to create the entire scene with the exception of the woodgrain cardstock that outlined the frame and of course the box frame itself.

As shown in the video:

  1. I blended distress oxide forest moss for some grass on the bottom.  Then as shown in the video I created the layered birch tree look by using a light color (frayed burlap) for the trees further away, a medium color ( vintage photo) for the trees in the midground and a dark color (ground espresso) for the trees in the foreground.  I made sure to dry the vellum thoroughly between each stencil and I found that no smearing occurred- once it is dry, you can layer color over it without making a mess!  Finally I made a sky using several colors.
  2. I stamped all the images on vellum, die cut them and copic colored them.  Although the distress ink shows up quite well on the vellum, copic coloring is very light.  After figuring out how the scene would look, I made sure to exactly know where I wanted the background lit up.  Using the EZ-light power pack from Pear Blossom Press made it truly easy to get this effect and allowed me to forgo making a circuit with copper wire.

Welcome to the Trinity Stamps LLC“>Trinity Stamps & Coffee Loving Cardmakers Collaboration Hop.  If you came from the amazing Brenda Noelke’s blog, you are in the right place!

Today we are showcasing the Frappy Camper stamp & die set!  I used the super awesome Coffee Mug Card Die set to highlight this stamp set and placed a few cute trees from the Castle Scene Builder Set.   I put the gift card holder as a sliding feature right behind the front panel rather than inside the card as it was intended.  This card was simply made by blending several distress oxide inks for the background and copic coloring of images die cut from the Frappy Camper stamp set.

Autumn Mini Coffee Cup

CABK-cup

Today I have a project using the Coffee Bean stencils, Mini Coffee Cups, Mini Coffee Cup Sleeve & Decor die set and Autumn Forest Friends stamp  and die set. The video can be found here: link.

Briefly, I die cut the large and small coffee cup sleeves from the Mini Coffee Cup Sleeve & Decor die set out of Neenah white solar or kraft cardstock respectively.  I also die cut the circle, scalloped-edged circle and coffee beans out of the same die set.

Using a larger version of the Blending Buddy, I ink blended ground espresso distress oxide ink over the Coffee Bean stencil onto the larger white coffee cup sleeve, let it dry completely and then spread Creative Expressions Paste in Frosty Dawn with a palette knife over one of the stencils.  It does take a while to dry and you want to make sure it is completely dry before you do the other stencil (that cover the other half of each coffee bean)!

While the paste was drying, I stamped and die cut the adorable fox from the Autumn Forest Friends stamp set.  I did some simple Copic coloring and used a white gel pen for accents.  I also die cut a tag from theMini Coffee Cup Sleeve & Decor die set out of Neenah white solar cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Autumn Sentiments stamp set.

Finally, I just adhered everything together as shown in the photo!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
