  • Sunshine is Fine



    This cool cat has the perfect spot! Float around for a while, then lay out on a beach towel. Perfect way to spend a summer day and who wouldn’t trade places with him? He’d got it made in the shade, unless he’s walking on sunshine.


    A big congrats to Melissa, this week’s Featured Stamper (FS904)! She has a super gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the filmstrip idea but used different images, dies, colors, changed it from Christmas to summer & made mine a mini slimline,

    After coloring the cool kitties, I die cut them & a plain white panel for the center of the filmstrip. The filmstrip itself was cut out of black. There are 4 opening in the die cut as is, but I cut it apart & spliced it back together with only 3. This is easier to do on dark card stock because it doesn’t show on the black. The kitties were added behind the filmstrip & trimmed so they didn’t go out into the edges. Then I backed the center section w/ another piece of white. The paper behind the white panel was also spliced since it’s shorter than the mini slimline layer. Again, it was easy to do down at the very dark blue end. When I tilted the filmstrip it looked a little bare in the upper left corner so I added a die cut sun before attaching the filmstrip. Sorta reinforces the “sunshine” theme as well.

    The filmstrip was only slightly elevated. Here are the Copics I used:

  • Christmas Mini Slimline


    A 1 layer mini slimline Christmas card made with a few dies & modern color combo. Change up the color combo to customize for everyone on your list, then die cut all the pieces. You’ll have a stack of easy to assemble cards in no time.

    It’s my turn to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC935) & I chose In Honor of Design & their Pinterest Board where I found THIS to inspire me.

    My mini slimline card is pretty easy & clean & simple. I die cut the leaves & greeting out of heavy white & the holly berries & oak leaves out of red mirror card, then arranged them all as you see. Since my greeting die cuts are fairly large, placing them on an angle similar to my inspiration picture worked out great. Since it’s only one layer, it’s perfectly mailable w/o worrying about extra postage…just put it in a business envelope if you don’t have one for a mini slimline.

    Thanks

  • Halloween Greetings


    A stenciled & die cut mini slimline Halloween card. Easy to make & change up the colors or use a colored designer paper for the background. So many ways to customize the look.




    A big congrats to Dbamesburg, the newest Featured Stamper (FS866)! She has a sweet little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the 1 layer style & left side arrangement but used different images, colors & made mine a Halloween theme instead of Christmas.

    My mini slimline card started w/ a yellow/orange/purple background I made ages ago. It was done by spreading Marvy metallic markers onto a brayer, spritzing w/ water then rolling it across the white card stock. The colors seemed very Halloweeny to me, so I used the stencil & azure ink to sponge in the tree & background bats. For the moon, I sponged the stencil w/ 2 yellow inks onto a small piece of white, die cut it w/ circle die & attached it on top. I used another stencil to add the grass across the bottom to ground it.

    A few die cut purple bats were added on top as well as the tombstone & hand.  A small piece of purple die cut grass was added across the bottom of the tombstone. I positioned the greeting tag so it would appear the hand was holding it.

    Thanks so
