Hello friends! I am so excited to be hopping along with the amazing Pinkfresh team for their newest Essentials Slim Cuts Release! * (Affiliated links used at no additional cost to you.) * If you are hopping along, you should have just arrived from the blog of the very talented, Nicky Meek.
For my first card, I used the new gorgeous Slim Braided Circles Die. All of my slimline card bases today are 3 5/8″ x 8 5/8″ and fit perfectly into a traditional slimline envelope, which is 3 7/8″ x 8 7/8″.
I combined this set with some beautiful flowers from the Fancy Blooms Stamp Set. I stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating Fancy Bloom Dies to cut them out. I used the Rise and Shine Premium Dye Ink Cube Pack to blend my background.
For my next card, I used the Slim Stitched Rectangle Die Set for my card base. I combined it with the Wild Flower Sketches Stamps. I first blended my background with some blue inks using the Starry Night Premium Dye Ink Cube Pack. I then used these same inks to stamp my images onto my base after it was dry.
For all of my sentiments on my card samples today, I used the gorgeous Forever in Our Hearts Stamp Set.
I did a third card, similar to the one prior. I used the same stamp sets. The only difference was the colors that I used for the background and to stamp my flowers. For this card, I combined both inks from the Rise and Shine Premium Dye Ink Pack along with the Indian Summer Ink Pack.
