Sneak Week: Life is a Balancing Act


Hello and welcome Trinity Fans!! This is Shanna from Caffeinated Craftiness today. We are in full sneak peek mode this week as we gear up to debut our AMAZING new release on Friday!!  I can’ wait for you all to see the release in it’s entirety, its a *show-stopper* for sure!! 

Today I am giving you an early peek at a few new products.  The new Balancing Acts stamp set, Papercrafting Magic,  and the Superstar stencil!

This little clown on his unicycle just cracks me up!  He is struggling but bravely crossing the tight rope.  Pretty sure there is a metaphor there to be had in my life!  

I decided he reallllly needed to be interactive!  This release has been hard for me NOT to want to make all the things move!  So much fun!

I grabbed the Slimline Twist and slide dies and decided to modify the twist set to an A2 version.  To do this, you omit the longest die and only use the short one, forming a square mechanism.  The photo below shows how it was assembled.  I did have to add holes for the middle brad to secure it to the card panel.  

For my main panel, I used the new Superstar layering stencil.  I foiled one of the layers in Shattered Gold deco foil. and then used Glossy Texture Paste from Ranger for the second one.  I used the Papercrafting magic set to add the word “pull” to my tab and some fun stars heat embossed around my sentiment.

The scene panel was attached to the interactive panel using foam tape, and then a card base was added under them.  

Circus scenes are always reminiscent of happy Summers and big smiles and cotton candy……..Did you ever go to the Circus as a child??  Or take your own children to the circus??  This release is chalk full of fun, you won’t want to miss it!  

The Design teams will be hopping over on Instagram and Youtube on Friday April 30th!  You are totally invited! Can’t wait to *see* you there!

Thank you so much for stopping by and supporting Trinity Stamps! I will be back again soon with another fun Trinity Stamps project!  For loads more inspiration, be sure to check out the Trinity Stamps Instagram and Imagination, Inspiration, and Conversation Facebook group! I hope to see you again soon.  If you enjoyed my project today, be sure to follow me over on Facebook and Instagram as well to keep up with all my caffeinated adventures!  Until next time!! ~Shanna
