Any Occasion Card, Colored Pencils, Copic Coloring, Not 2 Shabby

Trinity Stamps Mini Encouragement Cards | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project February 2020

Hello everyone! I have some really top-notch products from Trinity Stamps that I’m focusing my design team project on today for the Not 2 Shabby Shop! This is my first time designing with Trinity Stamps products, but it’s certainly not going to be my last. The products that really grabbed my attention are their 3×4 stamp sentiments and the coordinating Slimline Fold & Frame Dies. Use the code N2S10 to get 10% of you purchase at the Not 2 Shabby Shop!!

Ninety percent of the time I prefer to create A2 sized cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2); however, the cards I created using these products are mini cards (4×5), and I absolutely adore them! Trinity released 5 of these sentiment stamps which you can use to create mini cards, or regular A2 size cards. The sentiments and the fonts are just lovely!

The Slimline Fold & Frame Dies were really fun to use with these stamps because they cut out a perfect sized card base to fit these stamps–it even scores a line in the middle for easy folding. If you’re planning on picking up any of these products, be sure to use the Image7

Card #1: Chalkboard Hug Card

This stamp is my favorite of the set. I stamped out the sentiment onto a piece of black card stock using white pigment ink. I then colored in the sentiment with some polychromos colored pencils. To make the sentiment really pop off the paper, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. You really don’t have to put a lot of time and effort into these cards to make them fabulous. Trinity Stamps has done most of the work for you.

Card #2:

I couldn’t get enough of this stamp, so I created another card with it. This time I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of kraft card stock. I used the coordinating Sending Monster Hugs die to die cut the word hug with different colors of card stock. I colored in the leaves, hearts, and other part of the sentiment with polychromos pencils and then adhered the letters dies onto my card front.

Card #3: Hug Window Card

On this card I die cut the word hug with the coordinating dies and place a piece of pattern paper behind it. I used foam tape to pop up my main panel. I also heat embossed the sentiment with more white embossing powder.

Card #4: Ink Blended Love Card

I heat embossed this sentiment with some clear embossing powder onto a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock. This card stock is great for ink blending because it has a smooth coating on it. To make the sentiment really pop, I added more colored pencils over the hearts and the love word.

Card #5: Copic Markers Better World Card

I love the graphics on this sentiment stamp! I had fun coloring it in with Copic markers onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink card stock. I’m loving this paper so far! I added some white Gelly Roll pen to create some highlights–they really helped the card pop!

I also created some mini envelopes for these cards using my We R Memory Keeper Punch Board. They are so fun and easy to make! Mailing out little encouragement cards like these would create a whole lot of happy in this world!

Here is my process video! You can watch it here or over at my YouTube channel in HD.

Have a happy day, everyone!!
