Shakin’ Succulents

Hi Trinity Tribe!!  This is Shanna here today with a fun shaker card featuring one of Trinity Stamp Company’s newest releases, Succulent Sparkle.  I absolutely love this set and all the different succulents and gemstones that are included in it!  So much fun to color. 





I created a border cluster frame by masking and stamping the images until a full frame was created.  I cut out the middle of the panel carefully using a craft knife.  Then the real fun began….I absolutely LOVE coming up with color combinations for these succulents and gems!  So much fun!  I watercolored them with my Tombow markers, but any coloring medium would be great.

Have you checked out the ahh-mazing Birthday Blog hop with some of the most talented designers in the industry hopping along yet??  There is still time to hop and oogle all of the fabulous projects and inspiration and comment for a chance to win!  You can find all of the New Release Hop details here.

There is also a promotion going on over on the Trinity Stamp Company site in honor of Trinity’s 1 year anniversary… YOU get the presents!  I used the Kind One Senti mini on card today, which is FREE with a 50.00 purchase.  The sentiment “incredibly Kind” was heat embossed in gold on a strip of vellum and then wrapped around the card front. I love this sentiment builder, it’s perfect for so many occasions.  I glued a piece of acetate to the back of the frame panel and adhered it to a piece of black cardstock with foam tape to create a shaker.  I really liked how the black made all the different colors pop.  I placed loads of different embellishments in the shaker:  Fish Flakes, Limeade Parade, Puddle Jumping, Fairy Rocks, and Hint of Mint are all in there!  

Also, have you seen the new embellishment bundles Trinity Stamps has??  The are a great value, and all of the embellishments come already placed in a plastic organizer!! Perfection!  The Crafty Dozen has a mystery selection (who doesn’t like a good surprise!?!) of 12 different embellishments, and the Toppings Bar assortment has the perfect selection of sprinkles!!  Both are an excellent way to grow a embellishment collection.

Well that wraps up my post for today!  I hope you like what you saw, and stick around for more!  You can always come say hi over on my blog, Caffeinated Craftiness, or follow me on Instagram.  See you all soon!
