Hey Crafty People! Happy Saturday and Happy Trinity Stamps Release!
I’m sharing TWO card designs using some of the brand new release; ‘The Greatest Friend On Earth’.
First Up, Friends Are Flowers
I used the super cute new Friends Are Flowers gnome and co-ordinating die to make this sweet friendship card that could be for any occasion, or even just a random loving gesture.
Today, I chose alcohol markers, Copics to be specific, and I had so much fun colouring this sweet image! I’ve been trying to be a little more loose in my colouring and just enjoy the process.

Background & Assembly!
I cut a strip of Neenah 80lb using a slimline die set and blended some Cummerbund ink using a Blending Buddy and the new slimline cloud stencil. I adhered it onto an a2 sized piece of dark blue cardstock from my stash.
The whole ‘coming in at a diagonal from the top left hand corner’ is a Jennifer McGuire tip which I’ve been meaning to try for ages! I really, really like it! Something a bit different for me!
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Midnight on Neenah 80lb, and die cut everything with the matching dies. One of the brilliant things that Trinity does is add these fabulous sentiment dies into their matching die sets which is really handy!
Ink Blended Rainbow Papercraft Magic…
The new Good Morning Sunshine layering slimline die set is so good!! You get two stencils which create the full radiating stripes design, with each stencil giving you every other stripe. (*I hope that makes sense 😂)
One of the best things about these is that they have laser etched lines that make it SUPER easy to line up…which personally, I find very useful! 😉
I used the newest colours from Catherine Pooler to blend this rainbow; Date Night inks might just be my favourite!
Adding The Magic…
I embossed a sentiment using Gold and added that to my ink blended panel. I trimmed the panel down to be 8.5inch x 3inch, then I stuck it down onto some acetate (you can easily use some old packaging for a recycled option.)
Using a thin slimline frame die meant I had a little hideaway for some thin paper strips to create my shaker portion; like magic! 😉
After adding some shaker bits from my stash I backed the panel with some Raven cardstock, from Brutus Monroe.
I will be back next week for more inspiration!
