Hi friends, welcome to Trinity Stamps blog!
Have you seen the new holiday release? Omg it is adorable!
Today I am showing you how I made this toad-ally adorable card using this stamp set and die and this super awesome layering stencil. As a bonus I end up using a dew new products from the Tim Holtz holiday release.
I started off by stamping the cute little images onto Hammermill paper using my favorite copic friendly ink by ink on 3.
I colored each of the images using a combination of copic markers in all kinds of tones and added highlights using a white posca pen. Next I die cut all of the images using the matching dies.
For my background I knew I wanted something classic and simple but with a touch of color and I knew that I wanted to use the gorgeous new glitter by Tim Holtz! I am in love with his holiday release! I used a piece of white cardstock that measured 4.1/8 x 5.3/8 and I started by using some green distress ink and a blending brush for my background edges and then I stenciled the one side of the layering stencil onto my paper using vintage photo distress ink. Now its time for the fun part. I carefully placed the other side of the layering stencil very carefully onto my paper making sure that it aligned perfectly with the image and with a spatula I scooped out some transfer gel onto the stencil and smoothed it out until I had a thin even layer all over. Lastly I removed the stencil from my paper and poured glitter all over it and let it sit for a few minutes until it was dry enough for me to put the card together. As soon as I felt it was dry enough I splattered some mica spray from Tim Holtz all over the panel and waited once again for it to dry.
Now it was just a matter of putting all my pieces together. I matter my stenciled background with an A2 white card base and then carefully placed my die cut pieces onto it until I was happy with how they looked.
And that finishes up this week’s project. I hope you got some kind of inspiration from my blog post and if you create something inspired by me please post it and tag me all over social media.
Until next time!
