More Slimline Inspiration

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 PumpkinsRound PumpkinsButternut Squash and Thankful Gourds.

The ink colors I used are listed below. 

Ella Pumpkins and Round Pumpkins:  Vanilla Frosted CupcakeBeach Blondie and Amber Citrine for the lightest pumpkins / Amber CitrinePeach Blossom and Coralline hybrid for the middle shaded pumpkins / Peach BlossomCoralline hybrid and Coral Cavern for the darkest pumpkins

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!

Hello, Spring!

Hello everyone! Hope your week and the new month is off to a great start!!! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a couple of floral cards. I mixed and matched newly and previously released items! I chose “Hello, Spring” as the theme for my cards for today. The tiny wild flowers are starting to bloom here. Even though the weather is still rather wintery, we could say “the Spring is just around the corner :)”!

For my first card I used the beautiful Pink Peonies washi tape as my background.

I adhered the Pink Peonies washi tape on a white cardstock and cut it into a narrow panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die. On a white cardbase I heat embossed the Confetti border on the bottom in Rose Gold embossing powder and adhered a thin rose gold glitter tape on the top. Then I foam mounted the panel with the Pink Peonies washi tape on the cardbase.

The Layered Floral Alphas were stamped in Noir and the florals on them in Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet, Soft Garden and Bright Fern. I cut the letters using the coordinating die.

I added the letters for SPRING onto the card using some foam tape. The “HELLO” is from Basic Labels set. I heat embossed it in Rose Gold and adhered it on the card.

I finished off the card by scattering some sequins from Guava Sparkle and Summer Soiree Couture Mix.

My second card is nearly a one layer card.

I stamped the Charmed Wildflowers image two times in a black pigment ink on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I also added a solo flower and leaves from the set to fill the gap.

After the stamping was done, I colored the image using Color Burst powders. I added lots of splatters in the colors that I used for the pink and purple flowers and also in white opaque ink. After the panel was dry I cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a cardbase.

I cut the letters for my sentiment using Modern Alphas Coverplate die from Glossy fine transparent adhesive glitter paper and from some white cardstock. I adhered them together and foam mounted them on the card as shown in the picture. My finishing touch was some Glass Slippers sequins.
