Welcome Spring Slimline Card with Newton’s Nook

Spring has sprung and I have a beautiful slimline card to share with you today, showcasing the Easter Lily stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set, Basket Weave stencil, Spring Roundabout stamp set, Banner Trio die set and Flower Trio die set by Newton’s Nook Designs.

To make the card, I started by stamping my images three times on some Neenah solar white card stock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I colored the images in with my alcohol markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies.

Next, the scallop background was made by die-cutting the scallop card stock using the Slimline Frames & Portholes die set.  I used the Basket Weave stencil with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink to create a subtle pattern for my flowers for added texture.  I adhered this piece onto some pink card stock, then added to a slimline card base.

I layered the flowers and adhered them onto the card with foam and liquid adhesive for added dimension.  I also die-cut a few leaves from the Flower Trio die set and sponged some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink for added texture and detail.

I die-cut some black card stock using the Banner Trio die set.   I stamped the sentiment from the Spring Roundabout stamp set with some Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder then heat-set with my heating tool.  I finished my design by adding a few Clear Enamel dots for added texture.   Here’s another look:

I hope I have given you some great inspiration today to create something beautiful.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Spring!

Rainbow Bridge with Cas-ual Fridays Stamps

Have you ever made a pet sympathy card for someone else and felt sad because you remember your own childhood pets?  That’s what I felt creating this card.
Hello everyone, I’m back for Cas-ual Fridays stamps today sharing this Slimline Pet Sympathy Card, showcasing the Rainbow Bridge stamp set, along with the Pinked Slimline die set.
I started by stamping the images on some Neenah solar white card stock with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set the images with my heating tool.  I fussy-cut the rainbows using my precision snips.
Next, I used some Hybrid inks and my sponge daubers to add color to the rainbows.  I wiped the excess ink using my paper towel.  By doing so, it made the colors stand out against the white embossing.
The background was made by using a clouds stencil from my collection.  I adhered the rainbow die-cuts on top using my tape runner.
The clouds were die-cut using some dies from my collection and adhered on the colored background with liquid glue.
Next, I used the Pinked Slimline die set and die-cut some 110 lb. card stock.  I also created my slimline card base, measuring 8 1/2 by 7 that I folded in half.  I adhered the pinked die-cut with liquid glue, then added the focal panel on top.
I foam-mounted the long clouds on the card and finished my design by stamping the sentiment with black ink.
I hope you like my card today.  Here are the supplies in case you’re interested:

Uplifting Slimline Card with Cas-ual Friday Stamps & Sale Info

Hello crafty friends! Before I show you my card, I just want to let you know that CAS-ual Fridays is making room for upcoming release and they have a sale until September 7th.  The stamps, dies and stencils are already reduced but you can still use my coupon code below (code at the end of the post), for an additional 15% discount.  Hurry up and get some of those goodies before they sell out!

For my project today, I am featuring one of the stamp set that is currently on sale, called “Floating“.  The bunny came from the Somebunny stamp set.

 

I started by inking up my slimline panel using a clouds stencil and some distressed oxide ink.  I also die-cut the trees, grass hill and the clouds using a die from my collection.  

I stamped and colored my images in with alcohol markers.  Since the floating stamp set did not come with a coordinating die, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the image.   

I adhered my colored panel on a slimline white card base.  I adhered the trees, grass hill and clouds with some glue.  I also adhered my focal images using my tape runner.  I thought about using foam adhesive but I didn’t think it needed more dimension.

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  Here’s another look:

If All Else Fails, Put On a Tutu and Twirl

I’m back today for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps sharing a slimline card, showcasing the Tutu stamp set and Ballerina Fri-dies.

I ink-blended my slimline panel with some distress oxide inks and adhered this piece on a slimline card base measuring 8 1/2 by 7 scored at 3/12 inches.

I used a die from my collection to die-cut the “film strip” and foam-mounted this piece on my colored background.

I stamped the little ballerinas with some black alcohol ink and die-cut using the Ballerina Fri-dies.  I also foam-mounted them onto my card for added dimension.

I ink-blended another piece of card stock and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I sprinkled some clear embossing powder, and heat-set using my heating tool.  I fussy-cut the sentiment and adhered this on the card with foam adhesive.

To finish my design, I used my white gel pen to add more texture to the sentiment and adhered some iridescent jewels on each of the ballerina’s hair.  Here’s another look:
