Sunny Studio Stamps | Garden Gnomes Slimline Card

April 10, 2020

Hello crafty friends! I hope you are all doing well! I have found that setting aside a few minutes each day to be crafty has helped me to keep some semblance of normalcy during these crazy times. I have a slimline card to share with you today that features both the adorable Home Sweet Gnome and Backyard Bugs Stamp Sets. (*Affiliated links where applicable at no extra charge to you.*)

I love creating slimline cards when I have a bunch of images that I want to use in one card without it looking too crowded.

To start, I first stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored them with Copic Markers, cut them out, and then set them aside to work on my background.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Red: R14, R27, R46, R89
  • Skin: E0000, E000, E21, E11, E04
  • Yellow: Y11, Y15, E35
  • Green: YG01, YG03, YG17, YG67
  • Blue: B000, B21, B24, B26, B39
  • Mushroom Stem: E30, E31, E35
  • Snail: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47

For my background, I trimmed a piece of smooth white card stock to 8.25″ x 3.25″ and then blended the top section with some Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I then diecut a strip of grass from white card stock using the grass die from the Sunny Sentiments Die Set. Once cut, I then blended it with some Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks to give it some color.

Next, I stamped my sentiment with Black Ink onto the lower right side of my card and then added everything to my card base with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape. Lastly, I added both a white and blue trim to my card using colored card stock so that my final card measurement would be 8.5″ x 3.5″.

Thank you for dropping by! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, please feel free to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!

    Your card is adorable, Rachel. All of the little critters are too cute, especially the snail. The photo of the colored critters all lined up by themselves is fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration.
