This National Stamping Month, show your love of stamping and cardmaking with the Slimline Celebration special!
This special features three exclusive stamp + Thin Cuts sets, that have the sweetest icons, plus two slimline card front Thin Cuts dies (Circle Cluster & Star Cluster) and to top it all off another stamp set that is loaded with sentiments sized perfectly for a slimline card!
I have actually made sooo many cards with these products already. The stamps sets are just so adorable & really these thin cuts are amazing.
My First card is a slimline but instead of using one of the Slimline Celebration Thin Cut Dies, I used the inner part of the Slimline Shaker Window Thin Cuts die.
I then stamped the Slimline Sentiments onto some white daisy & did minor decorations with some ink using the Perfectly Imperfect Patterns to highlight one of the words & add some extra decoration & the Orange blend Tri-Blend Marker which worked well with the Papaya Cardstock. I then added some Bright Bitty Beads in the orange colour to complete the card. I love how quick & simple this card was to create.
For my next card I pulled out the Distressed Oxide Inks.
I created a fun ocean background with Mermaid Lagoon & Chipped Sapphire for the ocean & blended some Mowed Lawn Distress at the bottom where I was going to place the seaweed. I sprayed with water & once dried I stamped some little fish in an assortment of inks. I coloured some cardstock with Mowed Lawn Distress & added some touches of left over blue distressed oxide inks & sprayed with water. I created seaweed with this. For the Angel Fish I done some Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade & Abandoned Coral. I added touches of white gel pen to the tails.
And finally for my seahorse I used Peacock Feathers with touches of Mermaid Lagoon & sprayed with water. I added white gel pen to the seahorse. I cut out a scrap of white cardstock with one of the inner pieces of the Square Windows Slimline Thin Cuts & stamped my saying.
I ran out of time to share some ideas using one of the fab thin cuts that comes in this collection, but I have enjoyed creating with them, you will sure to see them featured somewhere in this hop or on my socials.
I hope you enjoyed what I created with the Slimline Celebration paper collection, it was fun to create with.
I would love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Shaunna Richards – Passionate About Pages
