Hi friends. I couldn’t resist but CASE this card from Lawn Fawn Design Team member, Tammy Stark, featuring the cute Zesty Lemon Die. I used similar colors on the background but a different technique, changed the sentiment and a different border.
Thanks for reading this post! I hope you enjoyed and I’ve inspired you to make these cute cards yourself! If you want to share you creations with me tag me on instagram @kittieslovecrafting. Leave comments or questions below or feel free to email me.
In today’s tutorial, I am making slimline cards. I’ve seen these popping up all over instagram and youtube and I figured I would make one too ( I mean… I have to right?!? 🙂 LOL). Since I do not have any slimline dies yet (I stress YET), I will prove you can make them with any supplies you have in your stash and no dies necessary. Even the envelope tutorial I found on YouTube makes it super simple to make a slimeline envelope.
On the inside of the card, I adhered the leftover pieces of the balloons on the front of the card to the top portion and stamped ‘Happy Birthday! using the free gift stamp I received from Lawn Fawn for my birthday month and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Yes! you can get freebies for your birthday! 🙂 I couldn’t find this anywhere so I don’t think this particular tiny sentiment stamp can be purchased but there are a ton of other Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday stamps you can use.

Happy Hump Day friends! Here’s another quick card using the Simon Says Stamp’s Stronger Together March Card Kit. I’ve been having fun watercoloring with the pencils included in the kit. The quality of the pencils is not bad. You have more control with pencils than you do with traditional watercolors so it’s definitely a great option for folks (like me) who are not great at watercoloring. My colors tend to run into each other. Anyone else have this issue??
I stamped the balloon border from the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive 6×8 Inch Window Frames clear stamp set around the windows and also some extra balloons with the additional balloon and string stamp included in the stampset using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. To stamp balloons that look like they are behind the balloons around the windows, I stamped the balloon border on to Masking Paper, fussycut it out, and placed it over the balloon border image before stamping additional balloons. I stamped some of the confetti pieces around the card to fill up the white space. I wanted this card to look like a party on paper!
Before I started coloring all the images, I stamped some of the tiny sentiments in between the windows using the same Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (COPIC-friendly ink). I used COPICS in R17 and R27, R81 and R85, YR12 and YR16, Y06 and Y18, G07 and G14, BG000 and BG01, B95 and B37, and V06 and V09. Not gonna lie, this took a long time to color but I usually just watch a movie or Youtube videos while doing it so it makes it more fun. Once colored I all the images, I adhered the panel to the card base with 3M Foam Tape and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhered some of the additional balloons.
