Summer Blooms Thanks Card

Hello there, Christine here with a special sneak peek of our new product Summer Blooms Papercrafting kit.  It will be released tomorrow and will be sold exclusively in the Trinity Stamps shop.  It will be available while supplies last, so once it is gone, it is gone!  So, if you love it, be sure to grab it.  It is set at an amazing price (almost half of retail) and chocked full of goodies: stamp, dies, paper pack, ink and more!

I wanted to make a basket for the beautiful flowers with dies only from Trinity Stamps, so I got creative and made it by weaving 11 kraft cardstock die cuts using a small curved die (cuts the tea and cup rim; I used the cup rim) from the Trini-tea Cup Card die set.

I stamped all the images from the Summer Blooms stamp set with the ink colors included in the kit: Inkon3 in Sweet Petunia Pink, Marigold Orange, and Goddess Green. I stamped the leaves in Goddess Green and then die cut them with dies included in the kit. I stamped the flowers in Sweet Petunia Pink and Marigold Orange onto watercolor paper, let the images dry and then watercolored with the same inks on top of the stamped images. For a finishing touch, I added gems from the kit-I love how the flowers turned out.

I had decided that I wanted to make an A7 card so that the basket and flower arrangement had plenty of space. I cut a scalloped panel out of a delicate yellow paper included in the kit with the A7 Envelope Builder die set. I love stitching detail, so I also cut a larger panel using the same die set out of 110 lb Neenah Solar White cardstock. The card base is a 5×7 inch base (so 10 inches by 7 inches scored down the middle). I added a “thanks” sentiment die cut with the Big Thanks Cut & Foil die set out of rose gold metallic cardstock that I had in my stash. I added a few more gems just to finish the card off.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
