Thanks so much for stopping in today! I’m sharing a super bright and fun slimline card featuring some of the goodies from my most recent Heffy Doodle order! Right after I orderd these fun seagulls I kept seeing inspiration all over and it was killing me to wait for them to arrive. Needless to say, I had these cuties inked up and colored within minutes of finding the package in my mailbox!
I had a general layout in my head so I did stamp and color the images straight away. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and set them aside. Then I took a white panel and used different dies from the Slimline Scenery die set to cut sections. The one thing I love about these dies is how they give the stitched detail on both sides of the cut line so you could use either! It’s great!
After I cut the sections apart, I pulled out distress oxide inks and inked up each panel, except the clouds. From top to bottom I used squeezed lemonade and mustard seed, peacock feathers, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch, antique linen and gathered twigs. Then I spritzed it all with water and let it dry.
Next, I cut a slimline card base measuring 3.5×8.5 inches and adhered the layers one at a time working from top to bottom to make sure everything fit together properly. Then I used liquid glue to adhered my images and popped the card in my MISTI to add the fun sentiment at the bottom.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the bird beaks and feet and black glaze pen to their eyes. Then I pulled a couple of seashells from the Twiddler’s Nook Glass Beach embellishment mix and glued them on either side of the sentiment at the bottom.
I just love how fun and bright this card turned out! Originally I was going to use all blue for the background but I’m just loving that yellow panel for the bright sunshine coming from behind the clouds.
