Below are a few of the cards that I designed using the Winter Botanicals Stamp & Matching Dies, Season Greetings Silhouette and the Magic Sentiment Word Dies and the wonderful Castle Scene Builder Die set. 

Magical Holiday Wishes
This card uses the Castle Scene Builder Die Set and Magical Sentiment and Matching Die. The extra sparkles are from the *Magical* Lumos Glitter Confetti pack. I love how the light changes the Lumos Glitter Confetti from silver to blue! For the ink blending behind the magical castle, I used both VersaFine Clair Ink and Distress Oxide Ink…I really like how both of these two inks blended together and the vibrant colors it created. Trinity Stamps is now stocking the latest two Distress Oxide ink colors at a great price! 
Holiday Bows and Boughs
This card uses the trees from the Castle Scene Builder Die Set along with Winter Botanicals Stamps and dies. The little bow is just the sweetest thing ever! All of the stamped images were inked with VersaFine Clair Inks (Green Oasis, Glamorous and Nocturne) which you can grab in the store! The sentiment is from Season Greeting Silhouette. You must check out the other Design Team Blog Hop posts—they have AMAZING examples of how to use this set with beautiful blended and watercolor backgrounds!

Little Red Trees on the Hilltop
This card uses the Trees & Hill dies from the Castle Scene Builder set. I die cut the trees in red glitter paper and the hills were created by adjusting the hill die at different points on white card stock to give the hills some added movement and there’s that amazing sentiment again from Season Greetings Silhouette set–I was really impressed with how well it worked with embossing powder and heat setting! See those embellishments in the photo background? Those beauties are from the Tree Trimmings Speciality Shaker Embellishment Mix…I love the glitter on these sequins *swoon*. 
Here’s a little close-up of all the little elements. The Castle Scene Builder is such a versatile set and can be used all year round. 

Bonus: Wizard Birthday from the Pops of Paper Kiddo
The Magical Wizards Stamp set was a big hit with the kiddo this release. Here are her words about the cards she made (a card making blogger in the making).
“Hi everyone! I made 2 Harry Potter cards using stamps from trinity stamps. I made these cards for my two friends for their birthday because it was a Harry Potter birthday. I like Trinity Stamps because they have a lot of embellishments and I like Harry Potter.”

Ellen Hutson New Release | It’s a Winter Wonderland!

It’s time for new stamps & dies from the amazing Juile Ebersole for Ellen Hutson! This release is full of winter fun. It has me looking forward to the first sweater weather snowfall when snowman come to life and we take a mitten & warm cocoa walk in the frosty and sparkly winter air.

Here’s a link to a quick look at the entire new release! As an extra bonus you can buy the products separately or they have several different bundles at a discount!

I’ll be posting all week a few cards that I created with the new release stencil dies and Snow Days stamp set. I was able to get a jump start on a few holiday cards and I can’t wait to share them with you! 

Mermaid Holiday Wishes—Ornament Cards

When I first saw the Alpine Snowfall die, I could not get the idea of sea bubbles. I knew I needed to pair it with a mermaid tail. Then I realized I could make an ornament from all the different pieces from Alpine Window and them Mermaid Ornament Card moment was realized. Who can’t help but fall in love with a magical Christmas Mermaid and mistletoe! 

Here are a few Fin-tastic tidbits about this card:
  • The card front holds the Mermaid Ornament in place! 
    • With a quick circle cut on the red card panel (using the Alpine Window large circle die) and some thick foam adhesive to the white card base, the ornament can *sit* right in the card. 
  • It includes lots of glitter: Glitter Paper & Embossing powder
  • The little mistletoe is from the recently released Leading Ladies ugly sweater set and die.
  • The Mermaid Tail! was created using the Inner Mermaid Stamp and Matching Die.  
  • To create the waves, I trimmed away the house and trees from the Alpine snow die cuts.
  • To create the ornament I secured (with tape) red baker’s twine to the back of the Alpine snow die cut and then glued a 3 inch red circle to the back to hide the string.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!
