Today’s post is one of the stops of the Trinity Stamps new release blog hop. You should have come here from one of my favourite people, Emily of PopsOfPaper, and the next stop is the wonderfully talented Jeannie. The full list of the blog hop can be found at the bottom of the post as well as on the Trinity Stamps blog, in case you get lost.
I have used the lovely new Spring Fling Florals stamp set for my card, as well as the new Cracked Ice Sparkle Drops embellishments. The new embellishments added to the shop are AH-mazing!! Click HERE to check them all out and grab a little something for yourself.
To start with I stamped up the leaves on an A2 card panel of Copic friendly card stock. I did this with the help of my MISTI and a piece of clear acetate.
These I coloured in with green and greenish yellow Copic markers.
My flowers were stamped up and coloured in with Copics as well. I used yellows on two kinds, with varying oranges and browns for contrasts and details.
The other kind I coloured with pinks and fuchsias to make sure I had different colours in my bouquet.
At this point I had six flowers and I almost added another couple but after fussy cutting all of them out and having a play on my card base, I decided to stop there. More flowers would have meant the leaves would almost be covered up.
I like playing around with the placements of my images on the card base and then using Post-It tape to make sure they all stay in place. Then it’s easy peasy to add foam tape to the back where it needs it, plop it back onto the card and violá!
As a final flourish I added some Cracked Ice Sparkle Drops around the flowers.
These I adhered with Glossy Accents and then it was time to back off. Until I realised I had forgotten about a sentiment!
The new Senti-Mini sets are so versatile and cute, and I decided to use the Thank You Senti-mini one for this card. A quick stamp-stamp later, the card read ‘Thanks so very much for everything’.
That’s it from me today! Your next stop on the hop is Jennie. Don’t forget to leave comments on all the stops on the hop for your chance to win a $25 gift voucher to the Trinity Stamps shop AND an embellishment goodie bag! Winners will be announced on the Trinity Stamps blog.
Here is the full hop list as well! Have fun and good luck!
