Hello there crafty friends! Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Today I am coming on the blog to share with you this beautiful floral card using products from our sister company, Memory Box. 

I am in need of a few thank you cards; so I decided to pull out this large 6x9 stamp set called All the Happiness from Memory Box to make a set of mini slim line cards. In addition to the floral stamp set, today's card, also uses the Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim sheets,  Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die set,  and the Joyful Moments stamp set for my sentiment.

Mini slim line cards are just as popular as the regular sized slim line cards. They measure 6.25 inches long by 7 inches wide and are scored at 3.5 inches. Mini slim line cards make great note cards and can easily fit a security business sized envelope.

To begin, I stamped the floral image in Versamark ink onto a scrap pieces of white card stock and heat embossed it with Ranger Fine Detailed gold embossing powder. Next I took my Copic Markers and colored the floral image, then die cut the image using the coordinating die from the stamp set.

Next, I die cut the stitched rectangle from both a piece of white card stock and gold card stock. Since this die cuts a thin stitched frame. I paired the gold frame from the gold card stock with the inner piece of the frame cut from the white card stock. I sponged on some Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink onto the white panel, then stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Moments stamp set in Versafine Onyx ink.

Next, I trimmed the patterned paper to 6.25 inches x 3.5 inches and adhered it to my mini slim line card base with liquid adhesive. I then added the sentiment panel and the flowers to the card with 3M foam tape. Lastly I embellished the card with some gold metallic pearls from my stash.

 I hope you have enjoyed today's card project and found inspiration. I also hope that you will try making a slim line card for your next project. Until next time....Happy Crafting.

Crystal Lingo

Happy Monday crafters! I have two colourful cards today using the Crystal Lingo stamp set.

I started by heat embossing the cool geometric slim line rectangle shape twice in clear embossing powder on watercolour paper.

To ink the designs I took my Distress Inks and just swiped and smooshed them onto the panels. One panel was done in rainbow colours, the other in green, aqua and blue. I then liberally sprayed each piece with water and let it dry on its own.

For the rainbow card I die cut the Marzipan Alphabet from black cardstock to create the word because. I like the fun shapes of these letters and the added cut lines the dies create for each letter. It’s a great detail and adds texture to the letters. It is kind of hard to see this on the black cardstock.

To finish off this card I stamped the sentiment and added a bunch of Fairy Jewels that match the Distress Inks perfectly.

For the birthday card I stamped the sentiment in black ink on white cardstock and coloured the letters with two shades of yellow Copics. There are matching dies for the sentiments making it quick to get a close cut for the words. To finish off this card I added clear Fairy Drops.

Seasons Change
by Janet Katz

Fallcard1name

Happy fall, everyone! Cooler weather is just beginning to creep into central Texas and I’m here for it. For my first project as a new design team member, I wanted to design a slimline card, which typically measures 3.5” x 8.5” when folded. I started with the lovely Soaring Tree Frame cut from kraft cardstock. 

I used gold, burgundy, and rust cardstock with the Floral Cluster die, cutting off the tiny leaves on the edges and adhering them to the tree. Next, I die cut the adorable Pile of Pumpkins (I adore pumpkins!) from some deep orange cardstock.

I knew I wanted a snowy background and the Snowspeckle Washi Tape worked perfectly. I’d never worked with washi tape this wide, and found it easiest to adhere the leading edge of the tape to my plastic table top and then unroll it. This way I could measure what I wanted and get a smooth application by just putting my cardstock onto the sticky side.

I used a medium blue cardstock and cut the washi-covered piece down to just fit behind the tree. I used the same blue for the card base. I used a plain circle die to create the green hill, and then I swiped Versamark ink on the tops of pumpkins, the hill, and in one area of the tree. I heat embossed with white embossing powder to give it the look of snow. I went over a few more branches with a white gel pen.

I adhered all these pieces together along with the washi-covered background, and then used my same fall-colored cardstock to die cut Orchard Leaves. I cut apart these to make a nice variety of leaves for the card front. I used foam adhesive tape to pop up the snowy scene and added a computer printed sentiment. I hope you enjoyed this card, and I hope the beauty and cooler temperatures of fall are waiting just outside your front door.

Leave a Little Sparkle

IMG_2841-wm

Hello Friends!

Today I am sharing a sparkling, shiny card featuring a flamboyance of flamingoes! When I saw that darling sentiment from the Whittle Everyday clear stamp set, I knew it would be perfect for the little Whittle Flamingoes! They are just so pretty, wading through the water, leaving a trail of glitter and sparkle wherever they go! Take a look!

IMG_2838-wm

 

I used shiny glitter paper to create this slimline card, using the Leafy Vines Slim Plate, and adding a few flamingoes and glittery trees to create a vibrant Florida scene.

IMG_2831-wm

I cut all of my flamingoes, palm trees, and waves out of glitter paper, then assembled it all together.

IMG_2833-wm

I adhered my glittery waves first, and then took a look at my leafy vines. I decided to trim some of them down just a little bit to make the flamingoes and trees stand out a little more.

IMG_2835-wm

I added the flamingoes and trees, and the stamped sentiment, embellished with a few sparkly Fairy Jewels from Memory Box Open Studio. Just like the sentiment reads, you have got to spread that sparkle wherever you go!

This sparkly slimline will brighten anyone's day! It has FLAMINGOES! 

Thank you so much for joining us today!

The Coolest
by Kim Singdahlsen

8.9.21 PS side bl

The Whittle Ice Cream Cone is so cute and sweet that I had to make it the focus of a card.  It's so cute, that I made eight "whittle" cones in a rainbow of colors!

8.9.21 PS dies bl

Before I got started, I went looking for a sentiment and found the perfect one in the Whittle Everyday set - "You're the Coolest".  With the sentiment picked, I realized one of the ice cream cones had to be "the coolest"!  I found pink sparkle in the Memory Box Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad so I replaced the light pink cone that I had first made out of a regular cardstock with a sparkly cone.  Then to make it even cooler, I added sparkly gems and a little bow.

8.9.21 PS Close bl

I love the details in this die.  The waffling in the cones and the stitched highlights along the edge of the ice cream give it so much interest.

Because I had so many cones, to get enough length I made a slimline card - 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".  This made is long enough for all of the cones, but there seemed to be too much space above my row of cones.  I solved that by simply scoring a double line to fill in some of that space and frame my cones.

This was a fun card to make and all of those cool Whittle Ice Cream Cones were a nice mental break from the heat outside my window. I know who I'm going to send it to and I look forward to her reaction to being the "coolest" just like the sparkly pink ice cream cone.

A Summer Hug
by Nancy Penir

I've been playing around with the slimline dies, Poppystamps has in the store, and love the Leafy Vines Slim Plate.

DSC_0013

My card today is for no one in particular, just a general 'Hugs' card. Who couldn't use a hug right now?

DSC_0018_wm

Lots of bright summer colors, and happy flowers to brighten someone's day!

DSC_0011

My cardstock began it's life in white, and was transformed with Distress Oxide Inks, blended. I did the reverse color combo before die cutting the leafy vine.

DSC_0017_wm

The Slimlines will fit any business size envelope, and mails with a regular stamp.

Hope you give a slimline a try, if you haven't attempted one yet. 

Have a wonderful week, hope it's crafty!
