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.

Briefly:

  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!

Succulent with a Bokeh Background

Flower sunday

Recently the lovely designer Julie Ebersole demonstrated how to make a bokeh background on the Ellen Hutson blog here. She created a video here. I was so enamored with the look that I had to try it as well with the Trinity Stamps succulent banner stamp set.  Julie does such a wonderful  job explaining how to make the background, that I will only briefly describe it.

  1. Stamp the succulent banner, and create a mask to place over the image.  Place the mask over the image.
  2. I used Catherine Pooler inks: Tiara, Be Mine & Coral Cabana (but you can use whatever inks you have) with the Trinity Blendability Brushes onto Neenah Solar White cardstock.  Make any pattern you want, best is as random as possible.
  3. Using different circle stamps (or even an adhesive circle), stamp lightly all over with Hero Arts uniform white ink.  Overlap circles and use at least 2 sizes. (I also made a panel with vellum as shown below in the photo).
  4. blue vellum
  5. I splattered gold paint over the entire panel before removing the mask.
  6. Let dry for several hours or use a heat gun to dry it completely.
  7. I used some copics (R20 & R30) for the flowers and painted over the succulents with Catherine Pooler ink

Watercolor panel card

Today I have a video up on the Trinity YouTube channel, as well as on my YouTube Channel. It features a watercolor card that has a lower and upper panel that can be opened to reveal the inside.  The sentiments is visible both on the front and inside of the card.
