Hi, everyone! I’ve got a bright and cheerful card to share today, featuring Little Fairy Maxi from Mo Manning. I wanted her to be in a summery landscape, so I used a scene builder stamp set along with fadeout ink from Inkon3 to stamp the grassy hill with the bushes in the background, before coloring everything with my Copics.
I really enjoyed playing with the mini slimline format last week, so I wanted to create another mini slimline. Last time, I slightly miscalculated the measurements I needed to create the matching envelope, so I made this one a little bit smaller, so it fits inside the envelope from last week that was just a tad too small for that particular card. This one measures 3 3/8 x 5 7/8″. I didn’t want to mess with the scene too much, so I die cut a few clouds from vellum using dies from Papertrey Ink and white heat embossed a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment onto one of the clouds. I mounted the clouds onto tiny pieces of foam, and added enamel dots from Papirdesign on top in very strategic spots.
Hi, everyone! I’ve been wanting to try mini slimline cards for months, ever since Taylored Expressions introduced this new size back in August. I finally took the plunge and gave it a go, using the Penguin Hug image from Rachelle Anne Miller as my focal point.
My card measures 3 1/2 x 6 1/2″. I printed the image onto X-Press It blending card and colored it with my Copics. I was planning on doing a split complementary color scheme, but went with an analogous in the end, which is never a bad idea, in my opinion. I adhered the colored panel onto a card base I made from Soft Stone card stock from Papertrey Ink, adding two layers of cardstock behind the image for added dimension.
I wanted to create a proper embellishment cluster for this card. I love making these, and this card format really gave me lots of space to play with for a cluster, using die cut scraps of patterned paper from Maja Design, StudioLight, Imaginisce and My Mind’s Eye. I printed the sentiment that comes with the image onto a separate piece of X-Press It and die cut it using a fishtail flag banner die from My Favorite Things. I also added chipboard pieces from Snip Art and a couple of pieces of mini paper doilies from Doodlebug to build all my elements onto.
It’s no secret that I love enamel dots, and the Cool Summer Night enamel dots from Altenew were the *perfect* color to match my penguin. Since I didn’t have any envelopes in the right size for this card, I created my own using patterned paper from Papirdesign and my envelope punch board from WRMK.
I love this color palette. In addition to these colors, I also used BG71, which is a color I’ve created myself.
