Trinity Stamps - Thankful For You

Welcome back! I'm so honored to be guesting with Trinity Stamps this month and I'm up on the Blog today!  I have a card for you featuring the awesome new Layered Pine Tree Stencil Set along with Forest Friends and the Autumn Sentiments stamp sets!  The beautiful Layered Pine Tree Stencil is not just for Christmas!

I started by cutting out the Coffee Mug Card from white cardstock.  I decided to lay the card flat and stencil across the front and back using various green Distress Oxide colors so that when the card is turned over, the trees are on the back also.  I didn't decorate it otherwise, but I just liked the idea of covering the entire outside of the card with this beautiful pine forest.  Once the trees were on, I used some blue in the sky and blended the remainder of the card including the handle with more green.  I used the Trinity Blending Buddy Brush which I love because it's got that awesome tapered head, making it easy to get into the nooks and crannies of the trees without totally covering them.

I covered the bottom of the card with dots of autumn colored Nuvo Drops to give the feel of a forest floor and scattered leaves and other items.  We are standing at the end of a stand of pine trees just at the edge of a beautiful leafy forest.    I stamped, die cut and colored up my forest friends along with the pumpkins, leaves and mushrooms.  I added them all to the card with various thicknesses of foam tape.. something I have plenty of in my stash!

This sentiment from the Autumn Sentiments set was perfect along with a couple leaves and a mushroom from Forest Friends.

I used the card holder die from the Coffee Mug Card die set for the inside of my card where I placed a Dutch Brothers Coffee gift card and taped down my flaps for the other side and added a couple more Forest Friends images.

I scattered a few of my new favorite Soapy Bubbles sequins around and done!

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed your visit!  I'll be back on the Trinity Blog again this month and hope to see you again!  Thanks so much for stopping!
