Inspiration Post for The Little Paper Tree - With Sympathy from Trinity Stamps

 


I'm back today with another card made from the beautiful 'With Sympathy' stamp set from Trinity Stamps available from The Little Paper Tree online craft shop.

Here's the stamp set:


And you can find it here in the online shop together with a coordinating die set.

For today's card I cut a piece of white card measuring 14cm by 10cm and then a piece of copy paper measuring 11cm by 7cm.  I used some low tack tape, looped round, to attach the copy paper panel in the middle of the white card and then used the stamp turned on its side to stamp around the piece of card.

When I had finished, I removed the copy paper and used a black fine liner to draw a border along the edge of the white panel left in the middle before stamping the 'with sympathy' in the space.

I attached the panel to a card blank and finished with some gems.

Don't forget to head over to the shop here to see what else you might like to buy!

Inspiration Card Post for The Little Paper Tree - With Sympathy Stamp Set

 


Today I'm sharing my DT inspiration card for The Little Paper Tree online shop.

This month I'm using a Trinity Stamps set set called With Sympathy:

You can find the stamp set here in the shop.  There is also a coordinating die set to go with the stamps.

I wanted to show something a little bit different you can do with the main floral stamp apart from just stamping it up.

So I cut four panels of white card and used my stamping platform to stamp the same section of the main stamp four times.

I layered these on to black paper and then on to a white card base.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and this was just stamped and then layered on to black paper.

Why don't you head over to the shop here and see what you might be tempted to buy?!
