Hello Crafty Friends! Davina here with Trinity Stamps to introduce the August’s Crafty Troop Challenge #6. Last Month we offered a fun Card Sketch to work with, and using a random number generator I selected the June winner. Congratulations to Amanda Willet! Your Fairy Wonderful slimline card was selected, and I hope that you take the time this month to play along as well. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to collect your prize.
The August Crafty Troop Challenge is Summer. So whip out your Trinity Stamps and get busy creating a Summer themed card to link into the InLinkz button at the end of this post for your chance to win.
The card I’m sharing today uses the new Bunny Burrow stamps and dies. I wanted to use every image in the stamp set, so I made a tall slimline scene. I started by stamping and coloring all of the images with copic markers I was going to create a summer night scene so I went with darker color choices then I normally would. Next I die cut all of the images using the coordinating dies before adding white dot highlights.
Using Slimline Series Stitched Card Panels I cut a Bristol smooth panel and two green cardstock panels for the grass layers. I used grassy border dies to cut several layers from the green. Then inked the edges with Distress oxide inks. Then I inked a nighttime sky, making sure to create two little glowing areas where my fireflies would be mounted. I gave everything a glittery splatter Before adhering my images. I popped the short grass layer on foam tape to give a 3D effect, and tucked a snail from the Mouse House set inside the open door. These sets were drawn to work together, so I can’t wait to see what great scenes you create with them.
I hope you play along with us this month and create a Summer Themed card. Link it to this post using the InLinkz button below. Don’t be discouraged if your device wants you to log into google first.
