Peace

Hello! It’s Candice with you today sharing a sweet winter mini slimline design using your word dies in a different but beautiful way!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my mini slimline design:

I began my mini slimline with a 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For the background, I trimmed a piece of grey cardstock a little smaller than my card front, die cut the shadow PEACE 3 times, leaving space for my stamped sentiment. I then die cut three of the PEACE words from Bristol Smooth cardstock inked with milled lavender and tumbled glass and used foam tape to adhere to the card front.

Next, I stamped the birds and birdhouse, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I arranged them around the words and finished with an extra sentiment on a banner and a sprinkle of jewels!

Merry Christmoose!

These adorable moose from Paperie Ink stamps are celebrating the Christmas season!

I used these products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I first die cut the stitched window panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock and another using the Twinkle die and trimmed it a little smaller to fit behind the windows. I inked the Twinkle panel behind each window with seedless preserves and chipped sapphire and added the vellum snow hills behind each and added to the front with foam tape.

Next, I stamped the moose, birds, and accessories from the sets listed above, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I arranged them into the windows with foam tape and glue. I finished with a white heat embossed sentiment on the inked banner and a few gold jewels!

I love the colors of this Christmas card and you can head on over and check out all the great cute Christmas stamps sets at Paperie Ink!

Merry Everything!

I love these oversized sentiments from Paperie Ink stamps to create your own background for a fun card like I did on this Christmas slimline card!

I used these products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I trimmed a piece of pattern paper a little smaller than my card front and adhered to the card. I then die cut the stitched panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock, inked it with kitsch flamingo and spun sugar, and repeatedly stamped the sentiment.

The tags I cut out from the Bristol Smooth cardstock and cut 2 stitched circles. I taped off the square tag and inked it with salvaged patina along with the 2 stitched circles. I popped them up with foam tape and added some black twine to each.

Next, I stamped the flamingos and leaves, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I then stamped the oversized sentiment one more time using pink ink, cut it out, and adhered it with a leave on the square tag. The other images I added to the circle tags and finished with a few pink jewels!

I always love to use non tradition colors for Christmas cards and you can try it on your next card!

Thank you!

A Little Nutty!

These nutty little squirrels from Paperie Ink stamps new release have such fantastic expressions!

I used these products for my mini slimline design:

I began my mini slimline with a 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For the background, I created a CAS design by die cutting the stitched frame from thick black cardstock and again from Bristol Smooth cardstock and inked the inside squares with speckled egg oxide ink. I then die cut the stitched tree from Bristol Smooth cardstock and inked it with pumice stone and frayed burlap. I adhered these to the left side, the frame with foam tape and glued the squares inside and the tree with foam tape over the frame. I stamped the sentiment along the right top side with brown ink.

Next, I stamped the squirrels, nuts, and leaves, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I arranged them all around the tree and next to the sentiment. I finished with a few orange jewels!

Everything Quill Be Alright

These hedgehogs from Paperie Ink stamps new release just have to be the cutest and paired them with some older sets for a sweet Fall scene!

I used these products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background I die cut the stitched oval frame from thick white cardstock, trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to fit behind the frame, inked it with rusty hinge, fossilized amber, and scattered straw, and splattered with white paint and gold shimmer spray with a damp paintbrush.

Once dry, I adhered the inked background to the card front, used foam tape to add the stitched oval frame, and stamped the sentiment in brown ink.

Next, I stamped the all the images from the 4 stamp sets listed above, colored them with copic markers, fussy cut them out and added accents with a white pen. I then die cut the birch trees from dark brown cardstock and adhered with foam tape on the corners of the frame. The images I either glued or used foam tape to give dimension to my Fall scene and finished with a few red jewels!

I hope you are inspired to do some fun Fall cards as the temps will soon be getting cooler!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Wrapped in Love

Hello! It’s Candice back with you today! I love this Bar None Slimline die I designed for Crafty Meraki to use as a base for scene building like I did with this cute Christmas card!

I used these products found in the Crafty Meraki store for my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For the background, I die cut the Bar None slimline panel from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment in grey ink. I then trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth to fit behind the panel and inked it with the faded jeans, broken china, and tumbled glass oxide inks. Before gluing together, I added some stitched snow hills to create my little scenes on.

Next, I stamped the snowmen and trees, colored them in a blue and grey palette with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered them either with glue or foam tape giving some dimension to my card. I finished with some stamped snowflakes and silver jewels!

Gathering Owl Together!

These Owls from the new Paperie Ink Stamps release are just soooo adorable! I mixed them with previous releases to make this sweet Fall mini slimline card!

I used these products to create the mini slimline design:

I began my mini slimline with a 6 1/2 x 4 card base.

For the background, I first trimmed a piece of woodgrain pattern paper a little smaller than my card front and lined up my slimline Entourage circle die on one side and then on the other and adhered with foam tape. I then die cut the stitched circles from the Entourage die again this time from Bristol Smooth cardstock and inked them with salty ocean, salvaged patina, tumbled glass and glued into the inserts.

Next, I stamped all the images from the stamp sets listed above, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I stamped my sentiment in brown in and trimmed it out and colored the leaves. I adhered it with foam tape and added all the images around either gluing or popping up to give great dimension throughout the whole design!

I just love how this came out! Perfect cuties for a fun fall design!

You Autumn Know!

I love the the beginning of Fall, especially when it comes early in the Crafty Community! I know we all want to get our hands on the sets before the season starts so we have cards ready! Paperie Ink has some of their fall sets in this new release and I am highlighting the adorable You Autumn Know set!

I used these products to create my slimline design:

I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For my background, I first die cut the stitched panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock, taped off the bottom with enough room for my sentiment, and inked the top with dried marigold, scattered straw, and spun sugar. I then die cut the square windows, stamped the sentiment in the center, and adhered the panel with foam tape and inserts with glue on my card front.

The trees I die cut from inked pieces of Bristol Smooth with forest moss, peeled paint, crushed olive, and frayed burlap and adhered them around the windows. I then die cut the the base fence from thick white cardstock and the wood strips from Kraft cardstock and lined up with the bottom of the inking.

Next, I stamped the turkeys, mice, and veggies, colored them with copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I arranged them around the sentiment to finish my scene!

I hope you take some time to go check out the new release over at Paperie Ink, they are always full of cuteness!

Thank you so much!

Bored Without You!

Hello Meraki Friends! It’s Candice with you today with a fun slimline card to brighten your day!

I absolutely love this Scenic Route Slimline die to frame your scenes and I filled it with some trouble making kitties! I love how this die is great to use your pattern paper with just to give a pop of design around your scene!

I began my slimline with an 81/2 x 3 1/2 card base.

For my background, I first die cut the wallpaper pattern paper using the Scenic Route Slimline die, inked a piece of Bristol Smooth with speckled egg, scattered straw, and antique linen and splattered with white paint and gold shimmer spray using a damp paintbrush. Once it was dry, I adhered the pattern frame with foam tape over the inked panel.

Next, I stamped the kitties and plants, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Have you taken a look at the huge selection of MFT products in the Crafty Meraki store?! I know that it sells out quite often at the MFT store so you can always find it in the Crafty Meraki store and they offer the same shipping rate, free over $50!

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment in Versafine black ink and sprinkling a few blue jewels around!
