Hello, Trinity Friends! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here with a sneak peek from the Trinity Stamps release, Autumn Impressions. This fall release goes live on Friday, August 27, 2021. Before the release goes live, the design team is sharing sneak peeks all week. Today, I’m sharing the following new items:
(Please note: The product links provided here will be live on 8/27/2021, release date.)
I have a niece that is moving into her brand-new home this weekend. I’m so proud of her for making this step early in her life and all on her own. She’s worked hard to save for the down payment. Every detail of the home was carefully designed by her. She works for a builder so this was a fun process for Nicole! I thought it would be fun to make my card into a new home, congratulatory card. The row of buildings reminded me of a neighborhood. The rainbow of color and foliage above it just felt like a shower of blessings. I think this is a great way to celebrate her next step in life. 🙂
To create this 5″ X 7″ card, I started by cutting a card base 10″ tall X 7″ wide. I also cut two – a front and inside panel – both measuring 5″ tall X 7″ wide – all from Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock. I layered the card base, front panel and the Moonlit Town Stand Alone Die, centering the die on the panel and ran them through my Gemini die cutting machine. TIP: Layering and cutting them at one time ensure perfect alignment. If you do not have a Gemini or a die cutting machine big enough to cut a 10″ X 7″ piece, you can cut each one separately and align them together manually. I also die cut just the row of houses out of black cardstock, too.
Next, I stamped the pretty foliage from the set, Autumn Impressions stamp set below the row of houses on the 5″ X 7″ white front panel. I trimmed the black building cut out and glued it over the white buildings. Specks of black were added to the front panel as well as Topaz Twinkle Rhinestones gems for a little sparkle and fun in the air. I also stamped, colored (Copic markers: YR07, YR27, YR19, YR15) and cut out the three pumpkins and added them to the front using dimensional foam tabs to make them stand out in front of the black buildings. Before adhering the front panel to the card base, I trimmed around my front panel approximately 1/4″ for extra border detailing.
For the inside of the card, I blended four colors of Distressed Oxide Ink on the inside panel (cut earlier) using my Blending Buddy Brushes. From top to bottom, I used Seedless preserves, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Mustard Seed oxide inks, overlapping each one as I progressed down the paper. These are vibrant and beautiful colors for a skyline!
Once the inks were completely dry, I stamped the Harvest Rainbow image using Versamark and embossed it using white embossing powder. I made sure to line the stamp up with the front panel opening so it shows through when the card is closed. At the bottom, I stamped the word “blessing” from the Harvest Rainbow stamp set and added an “s” at the end of the word with a black marker to make the word plural. I also stamped the congrats message from the stamp set, A Sentiment For (almost) Everything below the word. A few small leaves around the phrase accent the sentiment. I attached the inside panel to the inside of the card to complete the new home greeting.
