It’s Erica back on the Trinity Stamps blog today. I wish I could tell you I had a long, lively post for you but these cards are SO quick. Not even I, Miss Jibber-Jabber, can fill out this post!
As I still need lots of Thank You cards for my friends, who generously buy my cards so I don’t have to drown in them, I am using the Thank You Senti-mini set again. Mixed with my fave colour blue, in various shades. For these cards I have used Distress Oxide inks but you can use whatever inks and colours you have on hand.
With the help of my trusted MISTI, I placed the first of three card bases in it and positioned the stamp where I wanted the stamping to start. Then a quick dab-dab of ink, stamp-stamp and we were off! I used different shades and in different order on all three to make them not all the same.
One is random. I have used the colours in whatever order I wanted for the first seven stamps, and then I started in the same order again, as I had picked out seven shades.
To finish this one off, I heat embossed ‘so very much for everything’ on a slim dark gray banner in white. This I added to the card with foam tape and as a final flourish, I added some Fortune Teller Acrylic drops.
My second card has the same colour on each line, from dark to lighter. At the bottom, I stamped it right in the middle in black ink.
The final flourish on this one was a few Black Eyed Baubles Beads in different sizes.
The last card is light to dark. On this one I stamped the last one in a dark blue shade of ink and *gasps in horror* left it without embellishments…!!
What sorcery is this?? In total honesty, I may add a few before I show these to my friends. It feels a bit naked. Some would say it’s clean and simple but eh, I’ve never been very good at those.
Now if you aren’t a fan of blue (we can’t be friends) you can mix’n’match colours to suit the recipient and change up the embellishments, or leave them off for masculine cards. So many variations are possible with this versatile set! It’s just your imagination stopping you!
Thanks for stopping by today,
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
