Collaboration Hop with Trinity Stamps and Coffee Loving Cardmakers

Hi Friends! Thank you for stopping by. I hope you’re enjoying the Collaboration Hop. If this is your first time here, Welcome and if you’ve been here before so happy you’re back!

We are celebrating the Frappy Camper Collaboration Stamp Set from Trinity Stamps and Coffee Loving Cardmakers with a fun, inspiration filled Blog Hop! Make sure you comment on all the blogs for a chance to with a $20 GC from Trinity Stamps.  Must comment by 10/22 at 11:59 PM PT.  Winner will be announced 10/26 on the Trinity Blog. The entire blog hop line-up is listed below. 

For my card, I wanted to celebrate all things pumpkin spice with an autumn inspired Frappy Camper scene. I used the Autumn Tree Layering Stencil, Trinity Blending Brushes and distress oxide inks to create the forest background and fallen leaves ground cover. Then I stamped the camper, coffee machine, pumpkin spice and caramel syrup bottles and a stack of cups with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored them with my Copics. I stamped and die cut the awning using the Frappy Camper Coordinating dies.

Then I stamped several pumpkins from the Seasonal Sweetheart stamp set, colored with an assortment of orange Copics and die cut the pumpkins with the Seasonal Sweetheart coordinating die. I placed the pumpkins around the camper and added some orange sequins from the Autumn Leaves Embellishment Mix to fill in some of the empty spaces and add a little shine to the card. To finish the background of the card, I filled in the sky, grass and texture to the leaves and branches using my Copics. Then I stamped and heat embossed Leggings, Leaves and Lattes from Autumn Sentiments with WoW Caramel Macchiato Embossing Powder to a skinny sentiment strip along with the Coffee die cut. To finish the card with a some extra pop, I added little drops of Orange Crush Nuvo Glitter Drops and adhered the card panel to a copper shimmer cardbase.

I hope you enjoyed my pumpkin-spice Frappy Camper! There’s a lot more inspiration so be sure to stop by and leave a comment on the talented designer’s blogs! Big Paper Hugs!

Trinity Stamps Autumn Release Inspiration Blog Hop!

Hi Friends and welcome to Pops of Paper! I hope you’re having a great time on the Trinity Stamps Autumn Release Inspiration Blog Hop! This is an Awesome release full of cute and whimsical critters, beautiful florals and fun stand-alone dies.

Be sure to comment below and along each blog hop stop for a chance to win a $25 Trinity Stamps Gift Certificate! The entire blog hop is listed at the end of this post.

Trinity Stamps has released 8 new stamp sets, 3 new stand-alone die sets, three layering stencil sets, and a new Blending Buddy ink blending brush with white bristles as well as brown! Today, I’m sharing Four Cards using some of the cute little critters from the Sleeping Hollow and Forest Friends Stamp Sets. I also did a lot of blending with those new Blending Buddy Brushes. They tapered shape of the brush is awesome and perfect for stenciling.

For my first card, I wanted to create a Welcome Baby card using the sleeping deer from the Sleeping Hollow Stamp. She looks so sweet all cuddled up in her hollow with her pillow and blanket. This stamp set is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!! To create the Welcome Banner and Sentiment, I used the Succulent Banner stamp set from on of the first Trinity Stamps releases and some pink baker’s twine. All of the images were colored with Zig Clean Brushes and then die cut using the coordinating dies. For the background I ink blended Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn with the New White Bristle Blending Buddy Brushes. Then I pieced everything together with foam adhesive and tape runner.

For my next project, I created a Trio of layered Clean and Simple Storybook Inspired Greeting Cards using the Forest Friends Stamp Set and sentiment from Autumn Sentiments and Sunflower Bouquet Builder. I created the grassy hills using the hill die from The Castle Builder Die Set and the Stitched Waves Die Set (I was super excited to use the water waves as grassy hill accents). I also used the Catching Some Rays Stencil Set for the background on the deer card. I stamped, colored with Copics and die cut the deer, hedgehog and fox using the coordinating dies. I used the new blending brushes to create the blue background layers and grassy hills. The little hedgehog is sitting on a sunflower from the newly released Sunflower Bouquet Builder Stamp Set (it is a complete set of sunflower images with sentiments!!!). For extra pop, I added some cute little clay embellishments. The Hedgehog is holding a cute red/white polka dot mushroom, the Fox has a white heart on it’s bum and sitting in a field of flowers and the deer is feasting away on some yummy apples. Everything was layered together with foam tape or Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my projects today! Enjoy the rest of the hop and don’t forget to stop by Trinity Stamps to see all the new release goodies.

Instagram Post: Witch, Please!

Hi Everyone, thank for stopping by for additional details on the Witch, Please! Instagram post. I thought I would try something different and link up the supplies I used for my Instagram Posts and post a few tips/tricks as well on my blog.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Just a little shading can go a long way. For the ghosts, I outlined the image with a BV31 Copic Marker and for the larger ghost I used a detailed blending brush to add Milled Lavender Distress Oxide to the ghosts body.
  • Ghostly cheeks: If you are like me, you add cute little rosy cheeks to all your cute little critter images. For the ghosts, instead of using a rose color I used a Stardust Glitter gel pen for the cheeks.
  • Best True Black Card Stock!! Great weight, die cuts perfectly and looks amazing with white embossed sentiments.
