Happy Birthday Slimline Card with Gift Card Pocket


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a Slimline Card that also has a pocket to hold a gift card on the front.

To create my slimline card I used Divinity Designs Slimline Card Base, Slimline Layering Rectangles and Slimline Rectangles die sets. 

I  used patterned paper from Bold Blooms Slimline Sized Paper Pad for the layers of my card.

For the gift card pocket I used one of the pocket dies from the Gift Card Pockets with Layers die sets which I added to the right side of the card.

I added the Happy Birthday sentiment to the left side of the card which uses the new Slimline Happy Birthday and Layers die set.







    

Black, White and Red Celebrate

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Nicky Foden our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Being the third Saturday of the month it's time for a sketch challenge.



The sketch shows a square card, but as I love making Slimline cards I decided to convert it to a Slimline card. Sketch can be tweaked a little to suit what you want to do.

I recently received Catherine Pooler Designs Little Black Dress Slimline Paper Pack as a gift, so I decided to use a sheet from that for my card front. I die cut the paper using one of the slimline rectangles from Picket Fence Studios Slimline Nesting Rectangles die set. 

I used one of the borders from Scrapbook Dot Com's Slimline Borders die set. I used one of the borders from the set which I die cut from white & black cardstock, offsetting the white border over the black.  Next I used one of the strips from Trinity Stamps Stitched Strips die set white I die cut from black cardstock and layered over the top. 

I die cut two circles using white and black cardstock which I adhered to the lower left corner of the card.

I decorated the card using the cupcake from MFT Stamps Mice Day to Celebrate stamp set, paper piecing the cupcake wrapper with patterned paper.

For the two smaller circles indicated on the sketch I used balloons from Lawn Fawn's Outside In Stitched Balloon Stackables die set.

I added the "Celebrate" sentiment to the top right corner of the card using the Catherine Pooler Designs die. I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock three times layering together and then offset with a red diecut sentiment.


For the inside of the card, I used the Picket Fence Studios Slimline Nesting Rectangles to create the white rectangle panel. I added the black border which is one of the Scrapbook dot com Slimline borders die set. I layered a strip over the top of the black border using one of the dies from Trinity Stamps Stitched Strips die set.

I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set. I used the Balloons from Lawn Fawn to add my sentiment and attached this to the pop-up panel.

Wishing You A


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing another card using some of the new dies from Divinity Designs April Release.

I have created another Napkin Fold Card using the new Napkin Fold Card with Layers die set, the card measures 4 inches square when closed. Please note the main base die from this die set measures 8 inches square, so you will need to have a larger die cutting machine to be able to die cut the card base.
 

I used patterned papers from the Star Shaker Kit - Brights Slimline size Paper Pad to decorate all the layers of my card. 

In the centre of the card I added a sentiment using the new Slimline Happy Birthday die set.


To hold my card closed I created a Belly Band using the Belly Band die set. I used the Mandala Layering Combo die set to create the mandala which I added to the centre of the belly band. I added a white circle to the centre of the mandala using one of the circle dies included in the Double Stitched Circles die set.

In the centre of this circle I added the "Wishing You A" sentiment which is from the Beary Christmas stamp set.














    

Enjoy the Ride


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Yesterday was "Look up at the Sky Day", so our challenge this week is to include the sky in some way on your card.


Recently I saw a card created by Sandra McDonald where she used the Pinkfresh Studio Slimline Layered Starburst stencil set to create a sky background using yellow inks for an Easter card. I loved the look and as I had that stencil set, I decided to pull it out to create my sky background for this weeks challenge. 

After I had creating the stencilled panel, I die cut the rectangle using Trinity Designs Slimline Stitched Card Panels & Windows die set. 

As the design creates a white space in the centre of the design, I decided to hide that by adding a circle for a sun.

I added two layers of grass using MFT Stamps Slimline Grassy Hills die set. I also added a road by die cutting the Trinity Stamps stitched rectangle that I used to die cut the sky and then I used one of the border dies from MFT Stamps Stitched Slimline Snow Drifts die set for the curvy edge.

To decorate my card I used the bunnies on the scooter from Honey Bee Stamps Enjoy the Ride stamp set. I added the houses and trees from Lawn Fawn's Happy Village stamp set.

To finish off the card I added the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps stamp set.


For the inside of the card I created a pop-up card. I created another stencilled panel that I used on the front of the card. I cut the panel down the centre vertically and added each half to the edges of my card.

I added the bunnies on the tandem bicycle to the pop up panel. Finally I added a birthday sentiment from Altenew's Birthday Builder stamp set.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:

    

Welcome To Your New Home


 Hi Crafty Friends, 

Today I am sharing another sneak peek of the new dies being release by Karen Burniston on 26th April. 

For my card today I used three of the new dies being released ... Tiny House Pop-up; Tiny Trees Pop-up  and Welcome sentiment die sets.


As I like making Slimline Cards these days, I decided to see how these die sets work on this sized card. As you can see they work well. If I made this particular card again, I would probably put the house in the centre of the card, with a tree either side and make the card landscape rather than portrait orientation. But I am still happy with how it came out.


I used the Crosshatch Long Rectangles die set to add the green pattern paper panel to both sides of the card. The path from the door of the house and the edge of the card is made using the nature edges die set.



For the greeting on the lower left hand side of the card uses the new Welcome die set which includes the sentiment and the layer. 

The other sentiment is computer generated and I used one of the Crosshatch - Rectangles die set.


I decorated the trees using the flower die included in the Tiny Trees Pop-up die set. I also added the flowers along side the path and the larger rectangle which is located on the top right of the card.


As the focus of this card is on the inside of the card, I kept the front of the card fairly simple. 

I added the tree to the bottom of the card, by cutting the lower part of the solid tree.

In the centre, I added a sentiment ... "Home Sweet Home".

At the top I added three clouds which are from the Outdoor Scenes die set.
