Glow in the dark card - Slimline Boos

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post today, to let you know that Trinity Stamps are celebrating their upcoming new release with an Instagram Hop. Head over to my Instagram account, or to the Trinity one, to find out more. 

I am sharing a fun card with some new additions to the Trinity Family - Slimline Boos (a slimline stampset) & Hello Boo-tiful (a standalone die).

The card was super quick to make, since I didn't do any colouring - just stamping in black. The colours were added with use of coloured cardstock. What does give this design a definite wow factor is the use of Glow In The Dark embossing powder on the "Hello" sentiment. 

The embossing powder does make it a little bit yellowish, but it's still delicate enough to allow to "hide" this part of the sentiment. And then when the lights go out... Ta-dah! Surprise! My kids kidnapped the card from me and are keeping it in their bedroom - they love the glow in the dark effect! 

The whole new release is live now!






Stay safe and crafty,

Mirella

Stretching your Halloween stamps - with Trinity Stamps

 Hi Everyone,

If you have been following me for a while, you probably noticed that I don't make many Halloween themed cards. This is simply because where I grew up, we never celebrated it, hence Halloween is not as important to me, as it might be to others. 

Now that I live in Ireland, and have kids, I am slowly getting into this whole fun, but in terms of card-making, I still don't feel that I need an awful lot of Halloween-themed creations (or stamps/dies, for the matter). 

This is why, today I am going to share with you how you can stretch (some of) your Halloween stamps, and use them for a completely different occasion. 

Curious? Pop over to the Trinity Stamps blog, and see for yourself!


Do you make a lot of Halloween cards? Let me know in the comments!

Big Batty Hugs,

Mirella

Alternative ways to add colour to your card designs with Trinity Stamps

Hi Everyone,

If you like colourful card designs, but don't have the time to precisely colour an entire image or scene, or perhaps you feel that your colouring skills are not exactly there yet - fret not, I have a solution for you! This idea also works great for creating card sets - you don't even need to change the image - just play around with different shapes, colour combinations, sentiments and embellishments, and you can have a versatile set ready in no time! 

Pop over to the Trinity Stamps blog, if you want to read more about how I made these cards, and how I messed up one of them ;o)


Do you have any go-to techniques for simple colouring on your cards? I'd love to hear about them!


Big hugs, and stay safe and crafty,


Mirella
