Kim from Cardmaking Blonde coming to you today with one of the cutest little sunbathers I’ve ever seen! SFL’s newest release is Summer Floaties! This release has a stamp set and paper pad and they go perfectly together. Of course they can be used separately but why would you want to?
While making this card I chose the watermelon paper because the little cutie is holding a slice of watermelon. The pool water you see is also from the paper pad and I used a pool die to cut out the shape. To create the border around the pool I used Nuvo Glitter Drops. The little cutie on her flamingo floatie is colored with Copic markers. She’s stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink so her features would be a bit softer. Heat embossed the sentiment with white detail embossing powder after prepping with some powder and using VersaMark.
This release is in limited supply so grab yours before they’re gone! Thank you so much for checking out the blog today and I hope you are in the middle of making a great Summer for you and your loved ones.
I colored up these little guys using Copic markers. I shaded where I could and for the teeny tiny areas I just focused on staying inside the area. This is my first slimline card and it was so much fun. I felt like I had more room to play with and create a scene. I used a waves die to create the waves and then inked them up with Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass. For the sand part I almost used paper but then remembered I had some sand embossing powder and I just could not be stopped at that point!
I am loving how this Slimline card turned out and if you have not made your first one yet don’t be intimidated. The measurement for the card base is 8.5 inches x 7 inches, then on the 7 inch side score at 3.5 inches. Okay that’s me for today. I have included the direct links to the items I used while creating today’s card.
Thank you so much for stopping by to day, please leave a comment and have a great rest of your day!
Hello and thank you for joining me today for another sneak peek! Don’t forget that the reveal is Saturday June 27th at midnight EST. The last few months the Flavor of the Month card kit has sold out so either sign up for a subscription to be sure you don’t miss it or come back to get your one time purchase card kit.
This card came together in my head as soon as I saw the paper boats from the patterned paper in the collection. I stamped out the images, colored them up with Copic markers and fussy cut them out so I could build the scene on the card. Even the sentiment jumped out at me as the perfect thing I want to say to the friend I plan on sending this card to.
I’m looking forward to seeing all the cards the design team creates for the hop this weekend and I hope you will join us as well. In the meantime don’t forget to come back Friday for one last sneak peak before the big reveal and thanks again for stopping by!
