Welcome to Day 2 of Craftin Desert Divas April release (available 4/17) and do I have the cutest stamp set to show you today! My family has always been fans of the Ratatouille movie and these cuties remind me of them! And since I loved them all, I had to get as many as I could on one card!
The awesome CDD product I used:
- Chef Trolls stamp set (available 4/17)
- Sorted shapes 3 stencil for the brick background
- oxide inks: fired brick & rusty hinge
- memento black ink
- versafine black ink
For my slim line card I went with a card base of 8 1/2 x 3 1/2, it allows you to use one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 to create your card base and the leftover to use on the front as I did. This size fits into the size 9 envelopes that should be available at your local craft store, I bought mine from Hobby Lobby. My crafty friend Nicky Meek was a great help with helping me figure out the slim line size, you can visit her blog for some inspiration on slim line cards!
To create the front, I took the leftover piece from the card base and inked the 2/3 top with the brick stencil using fired brick & rusty hinge oxide inks. The trick is to use tape and as you slide it down, overlay it on the bricks you inked before. This keeps a straight line.
I then stamped the sentiment (available 4/17) with versafine black ink and pop dotted the piece on the card base. Next, I stamped all the cuties from the Chef Trolls stamp set (available 4/17), colored with copic markers, and fussy cut out. I pop dotted these all along the card. I went simple with this and kept the cuties as my focus.
Hope this helps those who are tentative on trying this size, it’s fun and different and we would love to see your creations using the Craftin Desert Divas products on Craftin Desert Divas FB Gallery and on Instagram.
