Hi everyone! I am so excited to announce that I am representing Trinity Stamps as a Brand Ambassador! I just love the unique stamps and wonderful embellishments that they offer! And they just celebrated their 3rd birthday! Woo hoo!
Last month, Trinity stamps hosted a series of fun games over at their fan page Trinity Stamps-Imagination, Inspiration and Conversations. One of the games was a very creative BINGO game. It sounded like a fun challenge so I decided to play along!
My mini slimline card inspiration below uses Critters from the Bunny Burrow stamp set with DIY action wobblers, and ink-blended Teal sky and a Shine Brighter stenciled sun. I also made a DIY envelope and stamped the little critters inside the stamp images from the Crafty Post stamp set.
I colored all the elements of my card using copics. The grass was die cut from the ever versatile Scenic Borders Slimline die set out of green cardstock from my stash. Then I used an olive ink to ink blend the bottom to create some dimension to the ground.
For the background, I used the Shine Brighter stencil for the rays masking a circle for the sun itself. Then I cut clouds using the same Scenic Borders die set and used it as a stencil to ink-blend it.
To create my DIY action wobbler for the Raccoon and Hedgehog, I took some thin wire measuring about 6″ long, the same ones used for jewelry and I wound it around a pencil. Then I attached small round pieces of paper in both ends to create a base for it to adhere onto the card and the critter.
Here is the wobbler in action! And for the matching envelope, I created my own mini slimline envelope. I used the crafty post stamp set to stamp the outline of the stamps then I stamped some of the critters from the Bunny Burrow stamp set inside. I also used the other stamps in the Crafty Post stamp set to stamp the postmarks and the lines for the name and address of the reciepient.
I had lots of fun creating this card! I hope you give this one a try! I have all the supplies I used for this card and envelop linked below. I will be posting a DIY mini slimline envelope tutorial soon in my YouTube channel, so be sure to subscribe!
‘Til next time!
