Colorful Crafty Hearts
Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Trinity Stamps sharing a couple of cards using mainly the stamp set called A Crafter’s Heart. It’s one of my favorites, especially for mass producing.
I stamped the main image from A Crafter’s Heart with an embossing ink along with white embossing powder five times. I wanted to heat emboss so I could use the ink resist technique. But also, to switch it up a little, I also stamped out one using black ink.
For the blank outline image, I used the Blending Buddy to add a bit of grey distress ink around the edges to give it a very subtle dimensional look. Using Trinity Teal ink (a ink color named after Trinity Stamps), I inked up the edges of a piece of white cardstock. Because most of it will be covered up anyway, I didn’t worry about an even blend (in fact, it adds character when it’s not!).
To add a bit of dimension to the background card panel, I used the A2 Coverplate die: Quilted Cover. This is a really versatile cover plate die because it doesn’t have cuts in the intersections and you can use it along with the coordinating Quilted Pattern Trio Stencil, which provides you three different options (Stars, Dots, Hearts). For today’s cards, I used mainly the dots along with glacier paste to add some texture. To finish off the card, I inked up a strip of white cardstock in the same Trinity Teal ink color and stamped a sentiment from the A Crafter’s Heart stamp set.
For my white embossed images, I used a bunch of Atelier inks to blend different variety of colors. I also pulled a couple of my scraps and die cut them using the A2 Coverplate die: Quilted Cover. I either used the Quilted Pattern Trio Stencil or used some rhinestone embellishments in place of the stencil patterns. I stamped out a few of the sentiments on white cardstock and trimmed them down to strips.
This was an easy way to mass produce everything and I love that I ended up with 6 different cards for 6 different crafty friends!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
