Hello again! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog sharing two versions of the mini slimline layered scallops die set. I’m totally loving these dies and how adorable the borders they create are! I paired them with the freebie of the month and the stamp and die of the month subscription.
I had so much fun creating both of these cards! I started with the St. Patrick’s Day cuteness because I really wanted to see the scallops in gold glitter and green. Aren’t they so fun!?!
After cutting the scallop layers and gluing them together I pulled out the new stitched mini slim rectangles set 2 and found the one that fit just inside the scallops. I cut that from white and stamped the shamrock in the February Pup stamp set with The Park ink – first and second generation for different darknesses. Then I used a blending brush and inked a little shadow with the same ink. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom and popped the panel up with foam tape.
I stamped and colored the pup with my copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut him out before popping him up with foam squares.
Then, for finishing touches I added Touch of Gloss to the puppy’s eyes and tongue, shine spots on the pot and buckle on the hat. Then I used Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the shamrock in his hat and the coins in the pot.
For my second card, I created the scallops using striped paper from the Year Round Dots & Stripes paper pad. I cut another stitched mini slim rectangle and inked it with a blending brush using The Park and Barbershop ink pads. I stamped images from Easter Train and colored them with my copic markers.
I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and assembled everything with EZ Squeeze liquid glue and foam tape or squares. Honest to goodness, I forgot about my sentiment until the end so I placed my card in my MISTI and held my breath. It stamped beautifully but I highly recommend doing that before adding it to your scallop layers.
For finishing touches on this card I used Touch of Gloss on things like flower centers, dots and stripes. Then I added stardust Stickles to all cheeks and steam clouds. Isn’t this Easter train just the cutest ever!
