Magic Is Something You Create with Trinity Stamps

Hello Trinity Stamps fans!  I hope everyone’s having a great Saturday!  It’s the weekend and time for some design team inspiration.

For my card today, I am showcasing the 4×8 Sleepy Hollow stamp set and coordinating die set with the 4×6 Magical Sentiments stamp set.

To begin, I stamped as many images as possible on some white card stock and colored them in with alcohol markers.

I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.  I like to keep the rest of the stamped images inside the stamp envelope so that I can use it for future projects.

I ink-blended a panel of Bristol smooth white card stock using Distress oxide inks and the “Blending Buddy” Brown Bristle blending brushes.

I also used a clouds stencil from my stash to add more depth and dimension to my background.  I used some white Copic paint and my water color brush to splatter some white paint on the background.

I wanted my scene to look like it’s a starry night!  I set this aside to let it dry.

Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment with some Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder, then heat-set using my heating tool.

I foam-mounted the tree and some of the grass on the card, and adhered the rest of the images with liquid adhesive.

I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out.  This reminds me of camping under the stars with my hubby and children.  I cannot wait to camp with my family again.  Here’s a closer look:

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

XOXO You Arf The Best with Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Newton’s Nook fans!  I hope you are having a great week!  Have you checked out the February release last week by NND?  I am back today for more design team inspiration featuring the new Sky Scene Builder die set and Petite Flowers stencil along with the Puppy Playtime stamp set and land borders die set.

To begin, I stamped my dog images from the Puppy Playtime stamp set and I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

My colored background panel was ink-blended using Worn Lipstick and mustard Seed distress oxide inks.  I used the Petite Flowers stencil to add more texture to the background.  I adhered this panel to an A2 size card base.

To create my scene, I die-cut the hill and grass pieces with some Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up the pieces with Mowed Lawn distress oxide ink.  The clouds and sun were die-cut using the new Sky Scene Builder die set.  I also die-cut the frame with some pink card stock using a die from my stash.  Now that I have all of the pieces that I needed, I started to assemble the card.

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment on the clouds with Lobster Ink and Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink.  I also used my black glazed pen to add more depth and dimension to the dogs’ eyes.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Check out Newton’s Nook Designs Blog, Instagram and Facebook fan group for more design team inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!

Newton’s Nook February Release Day 4 – Easter Lily & Hello Spring

 

 

 

 

I always get a bit bummed because it is the last day of the reveals.  Were you able to hop along with us for the first three days?  You also have a chance to win each stamp set during release week so check out the details I have indicated at the end of this blog post.  [Just a little important note:  I know some of you had difficulties finding the comments section.  If you would like to leave a comment to participate in the giveaway, the “comments section” will only be ever visible when a single post on Word Press is being viewed. Please click on this particular blog post and you will be able to leave a comment below.  Thank you!]  

 

For today’s reveal, we are showcasing two mini stamp sets –> the Easter Lily with its coordinating die and the Hello Spring stamp set.

 

 

 

For my first card, I stamped the images twice on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

 

To create my background panel, I die-cut the scallop from the Frames & Flags die set.   I temporarily lined up the lilies on this piece and stamped the leaves and dots from the Happy Little Thoughts stamp set.  I really LOVE mixing and matching some old and new stamp sets to create my cards.  I adhered this panel on an A2 size card base.

 

The lilies on the card were adhered with some liquid and foam adhesive.  This creates more depth and dimension on layered images.

 

 

I die-cut the banner from the Frames & Flags die set and the “hello” sentiment is using a die from my stash.  I adhered these pieces on my card.  I also added some crystal clear gem stones to finish my design.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

For my second card, I cut some Bristol smooth white crd stock.  I used Dried Marigold, Picked Raspberry and Seedless preserves to ink up this panel.  I used the new Petite Flowers stencil (revealed on Monday) with some white textured paste to add more texture to the colored panel.  I love the white flowers agains the colorful background.  I set this piece aside to dry.

 

I stamped and colored my image using the Hello Spring stamp set.  Since this stamp set did not come with a coordinating die, I used my Honey Bee scissors to fussy cut them out.

 

I cut some Neenah solar white card stock and used the fourth die from the Frames Squared die set to create my window.  I adhered some acetate sheet to this piece and foam adhesive to create my shaker well.   I added some iridescent flower sequins as my shaker element and adhered the shaker panel to my colored background.  The image was then adhered with some liquid glue.

 

 

 

To finish my design, I added the pink bow from the new Baby Bibs die set.   Here’s a closer look:

 

 

 

Have you enjoyed looking at all of the projects this week?  To be honest I can’t even pick a favorite because I love them all!

For today’s reveal, we are showcasing Newton’s Rain Boots stamp set and coordinating dies.

 

 

 

 

 

To create my card, I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  The umbrella image is from the Umbrella Pals stamp set.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.

 

The clouds were die-cut using the new Sky Scene Builder die set.  I love that the clouds have different shapes and the stitching details make it so much cuter!  I have a feeling these dies will be my go-to dies to create scenes.

 

The background panel was created by using the Raindrops stencil (revealed on Monday) and Deco Foil White Pearl Metallix gel.  I let this dry for about half an hour and adhered this piece on an A2 size card base.  I also die-cut the grass and hills using the Land Borders die set.  The hill was adhered with some liquid glue and the grass was foam-mounted to create more dimension.

 

I added the clouds with some liquid and foam adhesive and the images I colored were also foam-mounted on the card.

 

 

 

 

To finish my design, I added the heart on the cloud from the What A Hoot stamp set.  I also used my gel pen to add some white dots to the boots!  I really love how this card turned out.  Here’s a closer look:

For the last day of the reveals, we are showcasing the Newton’s Valentine stamp set + coordinating dies with Newton’s Crafty Cardio stamp set + coordinating dies.

 

 

 

For my first card, I inked up some Bristol smooth white card stock with some Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink with my mini ink-blending tools.  I used the Cloudy Sky stencil to add more depth and dimension to my scene.  I die-cut my grass panels using the Land Borders die set.  I also die-cut the rest of the elements that I needed to create my scene with some dies from my stash.

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled some embossing powder and heat-set using my heating tool.  Lastly, I stamped the hearts on the clouds with some lobster ink.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

I did add some glossy accents to the big heart but you can barely see them on the photos.  It is really petty in real life though.

 

 

 

My second card is pretty simple.  I also ink-blended my background with Aged Mahogany distress oxide ink and added the white images by stamping them using Versamark, sprinkling some white embossing powder and heat setting them with my heating tool.  Here’s the second card:

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:

To create this card, I started by stamping my images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my alcohol markers to color the images. I die-cut the images using the coordinating dies.

 

I want my scene to look like these tractors are moving those hearts back and forth so I decided to cut my card stock four times using the land border die.   I ink-blended some of the die-cuts with Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks with my mini ink blending tools.

 

I adhered the die-cut pieces on an A2-size sidefold card base using either foam or liquid adhesives.  After adhering my images on the card, I realized I was still missing something so I decided to add the clouds using a die from my stash.   Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using some lobster ink.  Here’s the card:

 

 

I finished my design by adding glossy accents to the tractors.  I know you can’t see it on the photo but they look like glass.  Here’s a closer look:
