A Colorful Mini Slimline Card With Guest Designer Michelle!

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by! Our Guest Designer Michelle Short is sharing a delightful rainbow hue mini slimline card over at her blog today!

Her card features the We Are Right For Each Other stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

She stamped out some adorable images from this set and Copic Colored them before die cutting them out with the coordinating dies.

She also picked out some words to form this lovely sentiment. I love how these words stamp to fit perfectly onto the puzzle pieces!

For the background, She blended Distress Inks in rainbow hues on to a panel of white cardstock and spritzed water on top for the extra texture.

Once dried, it was adhered to the mini slimline card base with foam tape and then the images added on top with more foam tape.

I love the wide contrasting black border which I think really brings out the rainbow colors!

Thank you so much Michelle, your card is super adorable! We are thrilled to have you Guest Design for us for the past few weeks!

Summery Beachy Slimline Card

Delightful Beachy Slimline Scene by Mimi!

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Mimi is back to share her adorable slimline card!

I just love everything that’s happening in this sweet scene!

All the cute bears are from the Miniature Teddy Bear stamp set. I love how she combined a bunch of different stamp sets and dies to complete her scene!

I love the white beach shoreline she painted and the ink splatters to mimic the sandy beach.

The truck and sweets are from The Sweetest Truck. I love how she also a added a partial image (the leaves) from the floral design in So Blessed stamp set. The table and chairs setting are from Fun Night Out while the beach umbrella is from Rabbit Café.

I also love the little beach ball and sand castle she made from images taken from Penguin Agenda.

Thank you so much Mimi for sharing this beautiful scene! It’s so adorable!

Beautiful Floral Thank You Card by Karen

Hi friends! Karen is back to share another gorgeous creation with us!

Her card features the So Blessed stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts from our Spring/Summer Release.

I love the placement of the flower bouquets in opposite corners which compliments the scripty sentiment in the center perfectly!

I also love the combination of the white heat embossed images and water colors which brings a very elegant feel!

All of the images and sentiments were die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts in which you can find a large die that cuts out all of the sentiments strips at once – is a super time saver! The rounded corners on the sentiment strip also gives it a unique finishing touch.

Thank you so much Karen for your charming inspiration!

Adorable Mini Slimline and Tags with Guest Designer Michelle!

Happy Wednesday crafty friends! We are super excited as Michelle Short will be Guest Designing for us in the coming few weeks!

For today, Michelle made an adorable mini slimline and tags featuring the new Inseparable stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I personally love clean and simple design and I love what she’s created here!

For her mini slimline, she die cut a heart to set the scene and ink blended it with Distress Inks. The family of cuddly bears are from the Inseparable stamp set.

The sentiment ‘Special Delivery’ was white heat embossed on black cardstock and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. She simply finished it off with some clear gems.

For her tag, she Copic coloured the images and added Crystal Glaze to the purple hearts on the mini envelopes. The sentiment ‘sending warm hugs’, from Unity and Friendship Quotes, is also white heat embossed on black cardstock.

If you look closely, I really like how the coordinating die-cut for this sentiment cuts close to the texts. She then finished off the tag with some iridescent bubbles and twine.

I just love the nice clean looks of these projects!

Thank you Michelle for your beautiful inspirations!
