Mother’s Day Jar of Flowers Slimline Card

Hi friends. Mother’s Day (in the U.S.) is coming up so I decided to make a nice floral bouquet for mom. I had to pull out my well loved mason jar stamp set from Lawn Fawn to give the flowers a cute holder. I love the How You Bean? stampset! So many cute cards you can make with it.

I decided to make modified slimline card. I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 7-1/2″ and scored to 3-1/2 and a top panel to 3-1/4 x 7-1/4″. I used the My Favorite Things Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Tim Holtz TUMBLED GLASS Distress Oxide Ink Pad by Ranger to create a cloud background.

Next I stamped the mason jar from Lawn Fawn How You Bean? onto the top panel with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink and the stems and leaves from Queen & Company’s Love Jar Kit stampset with Catherine Pooler Eucalyptus Ink. I added a little shading to the mason jar with BG000 and 0 Copic Markers and diecut it using the coordinating dies. I also diecut two additional jars from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock which I adhered behind the image to add dimension.

I stamped several flowers from the Queen & Company’s Love Jar Kit stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Be Mine, It’s a Boy, Queen For a Day, Tutti Frutti, and Limoncello Inks. I diecut them all with the coordinating Love Jar Flowers & Stem Dies.

I adhered the card panel and mason jar to the card base and the flowers, using Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up some of the flowers. I stamped the from the Lawn Fawn HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Catherine Pooler Tutti Frutti Ink and Catherine Pooler Eucalyptus Ink. I diecut the “happy” with the coordinating sentiment dies and trimmed the “Mother’s Day” to 1/2 x 2-1/4″. I finished off the card by adding some Nuvo Drops in Ivory Shell to the flowers and highlights to the mason jar with White Gel Pen.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stampset with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink and added some extra diecut flowers.

Peekaboo Window Slimline Card Using Simon Says Stamp’s February 2021 Card Kit

Hi friends. Here’s a fun interactive peekaboo window with hidden messages for Valentine’s, Galentine’s or any day you want to share love. I pulled out an oldy but goody interactive die from Lawn Fawn and combined it with the Simon Says Stamp February 2021 Card Kit Love You Beary Much. I love the Tumbling Hearts 6 x 6 stencil included in this kit! It is so easy to make a pretty background with it. I will show you how I was able to use it on a slimline card.

The Kit includes:

I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored a at 3-1/2″ to create the card base and another piece to 3-1/4 x 7-1/4″. I used Catherine Pooler Designs It’s a Girl Ink to create a gradient background then used the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Tumbling Hearts 6 x 6 stencil and Catherine Pooler Designs Rouge Ink to create gradient of hearts over the pink.

Next, I used the Lawn Fawn Lift the Flap Dies to cut out three windows on the top panel. I backed the top and bottom windows with a piece of paper from the Simple Stories Sweet Talk 6 x 8 paper pad and stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to place behind the center window. And adhered that panel to the card base.

I stamped all of the images from the Simon Says Stamp Sweet Truffles Exclusive 3 x 4 stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and some conversation hearts from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set.

I colored all the images with Copic Markers. I used E23, E25, E29 & E49 (for chocolate truffles); R81, R83 & R85 (for the truffle wrappers, sprinkles and decor, hearts); R05, R17 & R29 (for hearts); BG000, BG01 & BG02 (for sprinkles and decor, hearts). I fussycut all the images and adhered some to the inside of the card and some on the outside.

To finish it off, I added some White Gloss Nuvo Drops.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple, and just stamped the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Catherine Pooler Designs Rouge Ink onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, fussycut and adhered it to the card. I also added nother truffle image.

Using Stickers to Create a Slimline Christmas Card

Stickers are a great way to create quick cards and who doesn’t like quick cards for the holidays, right?!? I had some leftover stickers from the Carta Bella Paper – Santa’s Workshop Collection, Christmas, 12 x 12 Cardstock Stickers featured in the Says Stamp December 2018 Card Kit, Holiday Cheer (sold out) so I decided to use them on a slimline card. The larger sticker like the Santa and reindeer one are great fro slimline cards!

I started by cutting a piece of Says Stamp Green Leaf Card Stock 100# 8.5 x 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create a slimline card base and a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4” for the top panel. I also cut another piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 1-1/2 x 8-1/2” and used the Lawn Fawn Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders Die Cuts to diecut a snowy hillside.

I used Versamark Ink to stamp the snowflake pattern from the Simon Says Stamp CHRISTMAS CHEER Stampset all over the background and heat embossed it with WOW OPAQUE BRIGHT WHITE Super Fine Embossing Powder. I used Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Oxide Ink to ink blend the background and adhered it to the card base. I adhered the snowy hillside to the card as well, leaving the top edge without glue. I adhered the Christmas tree from Carta Bella Paper – Santa’s Workshop Collection, Christmas, 12 x 12 Cardstock Stickers behind the hillside and the Santa on his sleigh on top of the hillside.

I stamped a sentiment from Simon Says Clear CHRISTMAS CHEER Stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink, cut it to 1-3/16 x 2-1/8 and adhered it to the card. I finished it off by adding Tonic White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops.

On the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Simon Says Clear CHRISTMAS CHEER Stampset with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink and added a reindeer from the Carta Bella Paper – Santa’s Workshop Collection, Christmas, 12 x 12 Cardstock Stickers.

Slimline Rainbow Card Featuring Stampin’ Up’s Nothing’s Better Than Stampset

There’s nothing better than… a rainbow card, unless it’s a rainbow of treats! 🙂 I decided to try making a slimline card with this mostly out of curiosity. Lately, I like to challenge myself to use every stampset in a slimline fomat just to see if I can stretch my creativity.

For this card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. I stamped all four of the outline images from the Nothing’s Better Than Stampset several times onto Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored them with Stampin’ Blends in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party and Blackberry Bliss. Then diecut them with the coordinating dies from Love You More Than Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than Stampset nto Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as well all the words (Coffee, Cocktails, Cookies and Chocolate) with Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Ink. I fussycut all the text out and then proceeded to lay out all the images and words on the card. Once I was happy with the layout, I adhered the sentiment and some images flat with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then some of the images I popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a shadow underneath the images with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. I finished it off by some shimmer with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

For the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment from the Nothing’s Better Than Stampset, and added an extra coffee cup and steam outline imageI had previously colored and diecut.
