 The Blog Hop ends June 15, 2022 @ 11:59 PM PDT.  Winners will be announced on the Trinity Stamps Blog. The release is live, so happy shopping!   

So, to start off I stamped my Cupcake Bouquet image onto 80lb Neenah cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I kept my stamp in my Misti because ill be stamping it again.

I colored it with copics in pink,teal, lavender & lime green. 
Once done I put my image back into the MISTI and re-stamped it with Versafine Onyx & I used  Ranger clear Embossing powder on top to give it a nice black shine.
I did the same for the sentiment. 
 I cut a panel using Trinity stamps A2 Quilted Cover plate (an older die but a good one) and has a coordinating stencil (sold separately) to add to those opened areas.
I die cut out the cupcake & sentiment & I added foam tape to the back of them. 
I then adhered it to my panel which was now mounted onto 110lb Neenah cardstock from cutcardstock
After everything was done I added a wee bit of Star Dust stickles to the centers of the cross hatch patterns for a bit of bling as well as the flowers. 
Its hard to capture in pics but IRL its sparkling!
I created an identical card with a different background & sentiment for an extra card to have on hand. We can never have too many birthday cards right? I added Trinity Stamps Unicorn Tears for my gems. I use them ALOT!

So to start- I'm using the A7 Flower Cover Plate & Popping Poppies Stamp/die set. 
To start I stamped my image onto 80lb Neenah Cardstock from Cutcardstock & die cut it out.
Then I colored it simply with Copics E01,RV42,R22 & R14 for the poppies and the leaves in YG03,YG25,YG17
I then grabbed a piece of watercolor cardstock and added Tumbled Glass reinker with water to the center working my way out. Once mostly dry I used a floral Embossing Folder on it. 
Then I die cut the floral frame from the A7 Flower Coverplate set. 
But I needed it to be A2. So....
I Cut it in these areas and made it down to size. I used Epic Black 130lb Cardstock from Cutcardstock.
I glued everything together, the watercolor embossed panel to my black card base and the floral frame to that. Then I decided to add color to the frame so I used the same marker colors. 
I added foam tape to the back of my heart and added a sentiment.
For the last touches I added coordinating stickles to the frame for sparkle and some shimmer to the Poppies. 
And a few iridescent gems to the white areas on the heart and Black Glaze pen to the stamen. These lil details really make a card special.

Floral Frame 5x7 Card

Hi friends! For todays card I am creating my very 1st 5x7 card. 
I'm using Scrappy Tails Crafts A7 Flower Cover plate die.
To start off I die cut the flower border from 110lb Neenah cardstock from Cutcardstock. 
The next step was to die cut the shadow layer. 
So I used the outer layer die and the inner die for that.
Then I colored my flowers and glued it to my shadow layer and then die cut THANK YOU FRIEND" 3x and stacked them up. I die cut the word shadows from 48lb Vellum from Cutcardstock as well.
Once that was done I glued it down to rough textured cardstock. 
I die cut 2 vellum leaves and stuck them under "for your kindness"
I added my panel to a black cardbase (130lb Epic Black cardstock) and some black splatter to the rough panel.
 The last step was adding iridescent gems to the flowers, shimmer and white gel pen to them as well. 
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Popping Poppies Heart Card

Hi Friends! Do you love flowers?  The Popping Poppies stamp from Scrappy Tails is so beautiful.  
I paired it with the Scalloped Heart Add on die set for the chocolate heart box.
To start off I die cut 3/4 of the pierced heart onto Savoy 100% Cotton Bright white from Cutcardstock.  Then I used an Embossing Folder on it. Then set it aside. 
Next I stamped my images onto Accent 120lb cardstock (because that white, it matched the heart) and colored them with Copics RV52,R81,R83,R85 & YG03,YG25 & YG17 & then die cut them out.
Next I stamped the poppy onto my 120lb Accent cardbase with Rainy Day ink from SBC. Then I added foam tape to the back of my heart & mounted it onto the cardbase. 
Then I glued my leaves directly to the heart & I added foam tape to the poppies. I adhered them down. I added some white gel pen to the poppy centers.
The last thing I did was add a foiled sentiment, some Wink if Stella to the flowers and some Fortune Teller baubles.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Heart Shaped Card with Scrappy Tails Crafts

Hi guys! Im here today featuring Scrappy Tails Crafts Scalloped Heart Add-On For Chocolate Heart Gift Box die set. Scrappy Tails makes alot of 3d craft dies but they can be used as a regular die like I do!

To start of I took the 2nd largest die and die cut teal cardstock folded in half and left 1/2" of the die off the cardstock to create a hinge. 
Thats my cardbase. I sprayed it with Shimmer spray for extra sparkle. Then I took the next smaller die (scalloped heart) and I die cut Stardream Pluto Cardstock from cutcardstock. Its a 126lb opal shimmer cardstock.  Its gorgeous. I glued it to my cardbase.
The next smaller heart die has holes like the cardbase and I die cut Distress watercolor cardstock with that one. I did ink smooshing with Distress re-inkers in Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron & Shaded Lilac on it. Once dried I stamped XOXO & Happy Valentine's day in dark gray ink. I added some Moonstone Glimmer paste for texture & shine and let it dry. 
Then I used white embroidery thread and stitched along the holes. I added foam tape to the back of the heart and adhered it to the base. I stamped my Sentiment in Archival ink on that Stardream Pluto Cardstock and trimmed it down.
I added gems along the scallops just to make it extra special. This card is for my daughter so I put a lil extra bling on it. 
I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by. Stay crafty my friends!๐ŸŽจ✂️๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿ–

Scrappy Tails Intricate Heart Spinner Add-On used as a regular die!

Hi Friends! For todays card I used a spinner add on as a regular die from Scrappy Tails Crafts. The spinner add ons dont have to be used as spinners but also as regular dies. Its such a beautiful die that I wanted it to be the star of the show for todays card.
To start off I die cut the heart with Distress watercolor cardstock. I grabbed my Nuvo shimmer powders in Violet Brocade and sprinkled in on top. Then I sprayed it with water and repeated until I liked the way it looked. Then I let it dry on its own. While drying I die cut my heart 3 more times and glued them together. I took the heart shadow die and die cut heavyweight vellum from Cutcardstock
Then I took a mesh style Embossing Folder and ran that through my die cut machine. I used my Master layouts 1 & 2 to create the stiched mat & the layers from lavender cardstock from Bazzill. I looked for cardstock that matched closely to my Shimmer powder die cut.
After I glued everything together and add my vellum shadow layer i only added glue to the back where the die cut what showing through. I wanted to make sure the glue didnt squish out and be exposed. I added a sentiment along the bottom with fosm tape underneath for dimension. 
To finish the card off I grabbed some flat back pearls that matched (blue-ish purple) and added them to the centers of the florals. Its such a diverse beautiful die that gives a beautiful look to any card!
