Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of slimline Thanks cards featuring some of our new goodies 🙂 ! Have you enjoyed our Slimline Die Release last week? 14 diverse Slimline die designs were introduced. From basic shapes to unique Coverplate there are a variety of die sets from which you can choose!
Without further ado, let’s take a look at my cards!
The first one is featuring Slimline Long Stripes and Short Stripes coverplate dies along with our grouped layering pumpkin stamp sets.
I stamped and cut all the pumpkins and mixed them up to make the stack of pumpkins. The stamp sets used are Ella Pumpkins, Round Pumpkins, Butternut Squash and Thankful Gourds.
The ink colors I used are listed below.
Ella Pumpkins and Round Pumpkins: Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Beach Blondie and Amber Citrine for the lightest pumpkins / Amber Citrine, Peach Blossom and Coralline hybrid for the middle shaded pumpkins / Peach Blossom, Coralline hybrid and Coral Cavern for the darkest pumpkins
Butternut Squash: Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz
Thankful Gourds: Soft Garden, Bright Fern, Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz
I also arranged the leaves and tendrils from Thankful Gourds set. I secured the leafy arrangement and the stack of pumpkins using a piece of Press’n Seal wrap and set it aside.
To create the woven background I watercolored two Canson Mixed Media paper panel in brown and gold in an ombre fashion. I then cut one of them using the Long Stripes slimline die and the other one using the Short Stripes Slimline die. I cut the bottom end of the long striped panel and started to weave the long stripes through the short striped panel. After that I mounted the woven panel flat on a white cardbase.
The stack of the pumpkins were added to the card using some foam tape and the leafy arrangement using liquid glue to the upper left corner of the card. The sentiment is from Easy Expressions: Thanks set which was heat embossed in Liquid Platinum and white on some black cardstock. I finished off the card with some sequins from Hot Cocoa Couture Mix.
The second card is featuring Slimline Scalloped Nested dies. I was inspired by this video which Effie once has shared on our YouTube Channel. She used scraps to stamp small floral elements and made a pretty floral card using them.
I started off by gold heat embossing the small floral elements from Charmed Wildflowers set. I watercolored the images using Color Burst and cut them all using the coordinating dies.
To create the pretty pink background I loosely watercolored a watercolor paper panel in Peony, Orchid and Cerulean blue Color Burst. After the panel was dry I cut it using the second largest Slimline Scalloped die. I also cut a white scalloped panel using the smallest die for my sentiment. As it was too long, I die cut one end again with the same die and heat embossed the sentiment from Poppy Wishes stamp set on it in Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
Now I started assembling the card. The scalloped background panel was foam mounted on a baby pink cardbase and the small scalloped panel with the sentiment on it. I then arranged the floral elements as shown in the picture, some of them were added using foam tape. To finish off I scattered Glass Slippers sequins.
That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Stay well and healthy!
