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.
