I resisted the Gnome trend until I saw these Trinity Stamps cuties I just had to have them. They are so fun and easy to color, I used Copics for my cards today. I thought they would be adorable paired with Thermoweb toner card fronts.
My first card uses Thermoweb Rainbow Deco Foil paired with the Dainty Hearts toner card front. I used a laminator to foil the toner card front and die cut it using a Gina Marie Designs scallop stitched rectangle. Next I stamped and colored the Falling for You Gnome stamp and die cut it with a rectangle and then die cut the top with a stitched cloud die to show off as much of the foiled goodness as possible. All the Gnome sets do have coordinating dies I just don’t have them but they are on my shopping list for sure. Then I popped the cute sentiment over the pile of hearts and added some Tonic gloss shimmer and glossy accents to some of the hearts. A really simple card with lots of sparkle and shine.❤️
My next card uses Trinity Stamps Joyful Heart stamp set and Thermoweb Lots of Dots toner card front, foiled with Deco Foil Brutus Monroe Rainglow foil. This foil is so sparkly in person it’s really beautiful. One of the things I really like is it comes in 6×6 squares so you can easily cut it with the rainbow going in the direction you want for the card. I again colored with Copics and die cut with a scallop oval. Added some Tonic shimmer sparkle pen and glossy accents on the heart he’s holding. I simply stamped a sweet sentiment and die cut it with. trinity mini tag die then added a little bow with gold thread. Tying the bow was the hardest part of this one.
My last card uses a Thermoweb/Unity Stamp Company toner card front. I LOVE these butterflies so much. I used Summer Sunrise foil it’s so pretty in person dark pink and bright golden yellow I have a hard time covering it up.
The stamp is Hello There and he’s adorable sitting on that flower. I wanted to make the golden foil pop so I colored the flower using yellow and oranges. I love a blue and orange color combination they are complimentary colors. I added more butterflies around the gnome from the stamp set and again used a die from Gina Marie designs. I used foam tape to pop the circle off the card front and a sentiment from Taylored Expressions die cut from an MFT rounded rectangle set from my stash.
One last thing I’d like to mention. As card markers we are always looking for the perfect adhesives. I am in love with the Thermoweb adhesive line I cannot stress enough how amazing their iCraft Ultra Bond is. It is slippery and gives you time to center and place die cuts on your cards. I use it on every card I make. Their iCraft tear tape is also awesome it’s super easy to tear and more importantly it’s very easy to remove the backing. I use this on every card as well. I use these two products to adhere all my card fronts to my bases. I add the tear tape to the border of my card front leaving the backer on. Next I add some liquid glue to the center, then I can move and slide the front exactly to where I want I give it a few minutes to set and then I reach underneath and peel the backers off of the tear tape. Its been a game changer for me. I’d encourage you to try their foam adhesives too they come in different thicknesses and it’s great for building different heights on dimension on your cards. I did that on all my cards today I wanted the sentiments lifted slightly higher that my other die cuts I’m able to achieve this without have to double up foam. Thank you so much for stopping by leave me a comment if you have questions.❤️
