Trinity Stamps Spring 2020 release
Hello my crafty peeps! I’m very excited to be here today sharing some projects that I’ve made using the new Trinity Stamps Spring 2020 release. It’s available now and you will definitely want to check it out. This release is huge and there are many contributors, and lots of illustration variety. I myself drew the quartet of unbelievable creatures and the fun space otters! There are so many awesome stencils, stand alone dies (more slimline dies) and a great Alphabet too!
We are having a fun and easy to follow along Instagram Hop today, April 10th, and again on May 15th. So multiple opportunities to win and best of all, and easy platform to play along on.
The first card I made with my new goodies is this Yeti filled Birthday card. The 4x3 set is called Unbelievable and has a great silly Yeti/Big Foot, and many accessory images like a trees, a balloon, and ice cream etc. He is so cute and very easy to color, I loved creating the scene using the mountains from the new Wonky Stitched Scene Builder die set. I also used some small images from the other accompanying sets.
I layered a few inkblended and die cut panels, then layered those onto some patterned paper from my stash. Once that was all put together I mounted it with foam tape upon a piece of mustard yellow cardstock that I stenciled with a new skinny line stencil. These new stencils are large enough to create a background for slimline cards or regular sized card, making them very versatile, and eliminating the tricky task or trying to “line up” your stencils and carry the pattern over.
On my second card, I created a full in slimline card using the new Wonky Stitched slimline series which includes many scene building dies. Like a great mountain range with snow caps, some stiched puffy clouds, 3 great tree shapes, and star bursts. I used the new stamp set, A Rare Friend, to create my scene along with the trees from the Unbelievable set. My little dragon has his treasure scattered about the grassy field, and I couldn’t resist popping some google eyes on him.
The beautiful scripty “Hello” is from another new dies set. The Slimline envelope builder makes great giant envelopes to fit a slimline card, and it comes with some layered scripty words. I used the same glittery white cardstock that I used for the snow caps to bring it all together.
Finally I created a slimline envelope using the new dies and some striped 12x12patterned paper from my stash. You can choose to close them with glue or tape, or the included little circle tabs and a string. I searched my crazy craft room looking for my old supply of eyelet grommets. Thinking it would be great to use them, but I could not find where I had stored them so many years ago. Hopefully I come across them one day.
Head on over to Instagram and follow along the hop to see all the amazing inspiration and the entire release. You won’t be disappointed, it’s really wonderful!
