I’m so excited to share these cards made with Trinity Stamps. For these cards, I used the Hopeful Flowers stamp set and sentiments from Succulent Banner stamp set.
I decided to use for the first time Tim Holtz Distress Specialty Stamping Paper for my background. This paper has a very smooth surface and a matte coated. To begin this card, my first step was to place an stencil with different bubbles size on top of my Specialty Stamping paper and started daubing with Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio ink. My background turned out beautifully, I really loved the result.
While, the distress ink was drying, I stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink the images and colored them with Copics markers. I used the following colors: RV25, RV21, RV10, BG18, BG09, BG34, BG10, YG25, YG11, B000, B01, B04, B12, B18, B23, B26, B32 and Y19. When I was finished with my coloring, I run all my pieces through my cutting machine.
As my second step, I cut a frame and a small rectangle out of pool cardstock from Hero Arts. Also, I die cut a another rectangle from gold cardstock, a little bit bigger than the pool color one.
In my third step, I started assembling this card by adding the pool frame to my background with foam tape. I stamped my sentiments in VersaFine Onyx Black ink over the pool rectangle and glued this die cut on top of the gold rectangle, added more foam tape to the back and placed it in the center of my background. In addition, using more foam tape I placed my florals too.
Finally, I run a tag die through my cutting machine with some pool and gold cardstock and adhered one on top of each other, placing the gold cardstock in the back. I stamped my sentiment and placed my floral on top. Last, I added some natural twine to my tag.
For my second card, I repeated the first, second and third step from my previous card using Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade ink, yellow and silver glitter cardstock.
I loved so much this Hopeful Flowers stamp set. It’s very versatile and you can use it not only in cards but in tags, in wooden frames, in Bible Journal and so much more!
Hope you liked my cards and tags and please have a wonderful week.
