Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde and I am super excited to be sharing these cuties from La La Land’s “Best Mates” stamp set with you today! I have been eyeing this stamp set for soooo long, I kept talking myself out of it and then the SFL Let’s Get Nautical paper pad was released. I could no longer hold off, I HAD to have them both as they are perfect for each other.
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!
Just keep crafting,
