Welcome again everyone! I have a fun mini slimline card to share with you featuring stamps and stencils from Miss Ink Stamps. Today I pulled out the super fun Slim’s Whims stamp set and paired it with a new fabulous stencil called Sweater Weather. I love the texture of this stencil! I can’t wait to get really messy with it! It’s going to be great!
I started today by stamping images from Slim’s Whims and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out. I used a tape runner to adhere the bow tie and cup to slim and then thought it was too perfect not to decorate his mug with that sentiment. So I popped it in my MISTI and stamped it right away.
For my background, I die cut the largest mini slimline stitched panel from Trinity Stamps from kraft cardstock. Then I cut the next size down from dark blue. I blended white pigment ink through the Sweater Weather stencil over the blue panel and popped it up on the kraft with foam tape. Then, using Slim as a guide, I stamped and heat embossed another sentiment at the top of the panel. Once that cooled I added it to a white mini slimline card base.
Before I popped Slim in place I decided to give the background just a little texture and shimmer by splattering gold watercolor all over it. It’s not big but in person it gives just a little something that I love!
Then I popped Slim up with foam tape and came in with a white gel pen to give highlights all over the images. Last, I used the coordinating Trinity Stamps die set to create an envelope and stamped the glasses image on the outside of it in brown ink.
This set always makes me smile and this time was no different. It’s super fun to dress Slim up and color him in different color ways too. I actually don’t think I’ve colored him the same way twice yet. It’s great!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
