Ink Pink!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and did you know statistically 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer? As sad as that sounds, the #SURVIVOR statistics have TRIPLED in the last 60 years!! So KEEP FIGHTING ladies!

INK! Pink is a collective group of crafters organized by my good friend Shanna, we have banded together to show support for the fighters in our lives. Be sure to hop along for a chance at one of the prizes from our generous sponsors and designers. To do so, you can head to my Instagram account, because I am the first stop on the hop.

Here is a peek at my card:

I didn't have anything specific to use other than these shaker elements, but I improvised and I think it turned out pretty cute.  I love this little Unicorn!

OK, want a crack at a prize from these amazing sponsors?!  Then head to IG and start hopping!

Have fun at the hop and thanks for visiting! Inky Hugs! ~Katie

Trinity Stamps and Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Collaboration Hop

Who's ready for another blog hop?  Gotta love the when folks like Trinity Stamps and Coffee Loving Cardmarker's come together for an awesome collaboration!  And of course the prizes, I know you never participate for a chance at those. ;)

We are back again featuring the most fabulous Frappy Camper's Perking Spot Stamps and FCPS Dies that were made together by these two groups. I can't tell you how much I love this set!  I feel like it has possibilities year round and it  just makes me so happy. 

This time around I made a holiday card.  It is one that was inspired by the paper I used in the backdrop.  It makes me think of a Christmas tree farm, so that is the scene I set.  And of course, any good tree farm has a coffee and or cocoa stand, with goodies to keep you warm. 

Here is how I made it:
  • Using the paper as inspiration, I started by die cutting a bit of white paper using my Castle Builder Scene die landscape bit.  I then used my distress inks and Trinity Blending Buddy to color it green.  I stamped the sentiment from the Season's Greeting Silhouette set in black, then I adhered the layer on top of the tree paper. Next, I die cut it out, using a scalloped rectangle die and set it aside. 
  • I stamped out my camper and elements (sandwich board, awning, menu, barista) from the Frappy Camper's Perking Spot on Copic friendly paper.  I used assorted Copics to color them.  I wanted my signs to look like chalkboards. The woodgrain is paper pieced.  I used my corresponding Frappy Camper Dies to cut out the camper and the awning.  You can see the inside of the camper is set back, I used foam tape to mount things in different levels and add dimension. I fussy cut out the other bits and mounted them as well.  
  • Next, I stamped the trees from the Joyeux Noel set on the same Copic paper.  I colored them to match the trees in the backdrop and cut them out.  Then I stamped the baby deer from the Silhouette set in a light brown on the Copic paper and then added colors with a slightly darker Copic, a black pen and a white gel pen. I cut that out as well. 
  • Next, I went about setting my scent up using various adhesives.  Once I had all my bits set, I mounted the scalloped square onto the base, which is a pearly cream cardstock.  Then I added in some Subtle Shimmer Snowflakes.   

Now, as you recall, we have a giveaway of a $20 gift card to Trinity Stamps.  So keep hopping and leave comments on all blogs by 10/22 at 11:59 pm PT to be eligible. The winner will be announced 10/26 on the Trinity Blog. Here is the line-up:
