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!

Bubble Wiper Card

CBK1CBK2

I have long wanted to make a wiper card, especially after seeing all the amazing inspiration from fellow team member Ali Farmer, her lovely video is here. I love all interactive cards and I feel the more kinds I make, the better I’ll become and hopefully I’ll design some of my own types hopefully.  I didn’t own a “wiper” die when I made this, I simply looked at several videos and made my own.

  1. Cut one panel of cardstock to the dimensions of 7.5 (length) inches by 4.25 (height) inches.  Along the 7.5 length, score at 5.5 inches and again at 6.5 inches.  Make a mountain fold with the folds on this panel.  I blended a custom color of distress oxide ink that I had made (a few drops of mowed lawn added to a lot of broken china) with a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and the Blendability brushes from Trinity Stamps.
  2. I cut a second panel of cardstock to the dimensions of 7.5 (length) inches by 3 inches (height).  I blended the entire panel with Distress Oxide ink “Mowed Lawn” with the use of the Trinity Blendability brushes.  I then die cut the entire panel multiple times with a grass die that I had (I used Lawn Fawn, but please use any company’s) and then scored the panel along the length at 1 inch and then 2 inches.
  3. I prepared the wiper mechanism by cutting a 1 inch by 1/2 inch rectangle and then scored and folded the rectangle as shown belowIMG_3712.jpg
  4. I cut a 3 inch by 1/2 inch piece of acetate which I stapled to a one side with the corner folded down.  The other scored side was adhered to the back of the grass.  I checked that the wiper mechanism worked before continuing on with the card.
  5. Finally I stamped images and a sentiment from the Bubbles stamp set and copic colored them before adhering them to the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you will try to make a wiper card!

Photobombing Goat Card

IMG_3556.PNG

I was inspired by a card from Leanne West in which it looked like the card had multiple polaroid/instax photos on it.  It’s no secret that I love the Punny Farm Goat stamp set, so I set to work try to make a card in which one goat would “photobomb” each photo on the card. The card also uses the Springtime Banners and the Alice Background stamp sets.

1) This slim line card has the dimensions of a 8.5 inch by 3.5 inch card base.  I cut out a 8 inch by 3 inch panel of kraft cardstock and a 1 inch by 8.5 inch panel of the yellow paper from the Lawn Fawn paper collection “Perfectly Plaid: Spring”.

2) I didn’t have a die that cut instax/polaroid photos so I improvised by selecting 2 rectangle dies that I had.  I used a 3.5 inch by 2.5 inch rectangle die for the outside cut and placed a 2.5 inch by 2 inch smaller rectangle to cut the inside.  Use what you whatever you have!

3) I stamped all the images with Gina K black amalgam ink from the different stamp sets for the left  and right “photos” without masking, but had to do quite a bit of masking for the center “photo”.  First I stamped the goat, fussy cut a mask of the goat (mask was made with Avery Removable Adhesive Sheets), and placed the mask on prior to stamping the flower image.  I then masked the flower and then stamped some more leaves.  All images were masked (from all three”photos”) prior to ink blending a background made up of a combination of Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink with a Trinity Blendability brush.

4) All images were copic colored: goat- (W3, E000 and the colorless blender), flower- (Y21 & Y11), leaves and grass (G46, G43), all birds (Y21, Y11, YR68, YR24) and the straw (E23).  I speckled diluted gold paint with a brush, used a Sakura white gel pen to made a few highlights and added a few yellow sequins.

5) Sentiment was stamped with Catherine Pooler Black ink and each panel was adhered using double sided foam adhesive since I tied yellow Lawn Fawn twine around 2 of the panels.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that I inspired you to make your own goat photobombing card!
