Ice-cream is my all-time favorite dessert and this is my inspiration for today’s project.  I am showcasing the Summer Scoops Stamp Set and Dies, along with the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die set , Slimline Frames & Windows Die set and the Banner Trio Die Set.  Some people celebrate with champagne, I celebrate with ice cream!

 

 

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

 

The background scallop was die-cut using the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set on some Neenah Solar White card stock.  I adhered this on some Blue slimline card base.  The yellow frame was die-cut using the Slimlines Frames & Windows die set and foam mounted onto the card for added dimension.

 

I adhered the colored images on the card with foam and liquid adhesive to make it look more cohesive.

 

 

I die-cut the sentiment strip using one of the dies from the Banner Trio die set and stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my Wagner heating tool.  I foam mounted this sentiment strip on my card.

 

 

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen and drew some lines and dots to the images for added texture.  Here’s another look:

Birthday Gnomes Card with Trinity Stamps

Hello all! I hope you all had a great week. Happy Saturday! My Canon camera finally gave up on me so while I am waiting for the replacement (it takes 3 to 4 weeks to get to me now since I am overseas), I will be sharing some projects on the blog with you instead.

For my card today, I used a LOT of products from the shop. I am showcasing the adorable Make A Wish stamp set, Just For You stamp set, Create with Trinity stamp set. The dies I used for this card are the Stitched Card Panels and Windows with the Serious Celebration die set.

I started by using the biggest die from the Stitched Card Panels & Windows die set to die cut some Bristol smooth white card stock. I ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide inks with the Trinity Blending Buddy brushes and used my paintbrush and to flick some water on this panel for added texture. I picked the excess water with some paper towel.

I die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock using the windows panel die. I foam-mounted this piece on the ink-blended background for added dimension.

I stamped and colored the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color the images in. Since I didn’t get the coordinating dies, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the images. I foam mounted them onto the window panel for added dimension.

I love coloring my images with bright colors!

For added texture, I die-cut the stars from the Serious Celebration die set and adhered them on the card with some liquid glue. I adhered the colored panel on an 8 1/2 by 7 inches slimline card base. Here’s a closer look:

To finish my design I stamped the sentiment from the Create with Trinity stamp set and Just For You stamp set.

I hope you like my card today. The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Wishing You A Magical Birthday with Cas-ual Fridays

I hope everyone’s doing well!  I’m sharing a simple birthday card today showcasing the Be a Unicorn stamp set with the Unicorn Fri-Die.

 

 

I stamped the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Proof Ink in Brown.  I colored the image in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers and used the Unicorn Fri-Die to die-cut the image.

 

I cut an A2 size Neenah solar white card stock on an angle and foam-mounted this piece on an A2 size card base.  I added the rainbow patterned paper.

 

The black decorative border was die-cut using a retired border die from Cas-ual Fridays but you can use any other border die to add to your card.

 

 

 

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black in and added some crystal jewels.  Here’s a closer look:

For the third day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Puppy Playtime stamp set + coordinating dies.

 

 

To begin, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my Spectrum Noir Classique markers to color the images in. I die-cut the images using the coordinating die.  The balloon image is from the Fabulous Frenchies stamp set.

 

I inked up my card panel with some Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick distress oxide inks.  I then used the Balloon stencil to add more depth and dimension to the background.  I used my distress sprayer and sprayed some water onto the card to get the oxidation effect and used paper towel to make it dry.  I die-cut this piece using the scallop die from the Frames & Flags die set.

 

I adhered this piece on some light blue card stock and added them to a white side fold card base.  I foam-mounted the images onto the card and added glossy accents to the balloon.

 

Lastly, I die-cut the “wishes” using a die from my stash and adhered this with liquid adhesive.  I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s my birthday card:

 

 

I don’t know about you, but a puppy with a balloon wearing a party hat is a good birthday party celebration in my book!!  Here’s a closer look:
