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!

Lit Coffee Cup Nativity Ornament

CBK

Hi everyone! This is the longest video I have ever made, I but I wanted to show various ways to use Trinity Stamps Seasonal Cup Decor & More dies to make coffee cup ornaments. I have several examples! Finally I’m also including a design to make a light up ornament with the Trinity Stamps Nativity set.  Here is the link to the video: link.  All the details are in the video, and the main technique is just simple diecutting.  The final ornament in the video has an LED component to it, so that the ornament lights up as shown below:

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!

Isn’t this set just gorgeous?  I was so excited to be a very small part of this amazing collaboration between Trinity Stamps & the Coffee Loving Cardmakers; I just love how it turned out.  If you are coming from the Trinity Stamps blog, you are in the right place!

I *love* (it’s an understatement) the new Perking Spot stamp and die set. I used some ink splattered vellum as a backdrop for a circular scene. I die cut elements from the Mini Coffee Cup Sleeve and Decor die, the Castle Scene Builder die and the Cloudy Day A2 Scene Builder die sets and copic colored all the images.

There is a $20 gift card up for grabs and all the details are on the Trinity Stamps blog.  So grab a cuppa and I hope that you are inspired by all the amazing projects the DT from the CLC & Trinity Stamps have made.  Happy National Coffee 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!

Please stop by Instagram today; Trinity Stamps and Miss Ink Stamps are having an Instagram hop filled with fun projects and prizes.

Pop-up Bouquet Card

Christine#2

I just love interactive cards and several trips to Hallmark (some family members like store bought cards) showed that pop-up cards are even appearing at Hallmark!  I wanted  to make a pop-up bouquet of flowers using the Trinity Stamps Spring Fling Florals set with the bouquet in the center of the inside of the card.

Christine#4

  1. Not having a vase to place the flowers in, I made an “elongated” box with Lawn Fawn’s Mini-Pop-Up box die by die cutting the box out of vellum and out of cardstock.  I cut the tab off the vellum piece and first glued the vellum to the cardstock and then folded the entire thing into a box.  The die set also comes with tabs for the inside of the box.  I cut 2 large tabs and cut several long strips of acetate to glue all the flowers inside.
  2. I made an A2 card base with woodgrain cardstock from Lawn Fawn and glued a small paper doily in the center of the inside of the card. Subsequently, I die cut a larger panel out of vellum and a smaller panel of Lawn Fawn’s Spiffy Speckles paper for the front of the card.
  3. All the flowers from the Spring Fling Floral stamp and die set were stamped with a light grey ink and die cut. I copic colored (V20, V28, R32, R30, G43, Y21, YG13) all of the flowers and then some were heat embossed with Wow Powder (Sand Dunes) or with Zink embossing powder in “leaf green”.
  4. I had some special thin paper which is gold on one side and kraft on the other, which I simply folded to form the paper bag to hold a few flowers for the front of the card.  Green twine was used on the inside and outside of the card to create some simple bows.
  5. I die cut a “hello” from the Sentimini “Hello” die out of gold cardstock with the shadow die cut out of vellum.  A few embellishments from the Trinity store (Boiled sugar jelly drops and pink peony confetti mix) finished the front of the card.
