Welcome everyone! This is Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook and I’m super excited to be celebrating, once again, with Trinity Stamps for their birthday release that went live a couple weeks ago. It’s packed full of so many amazing products and today I have a slimline card featuring one of the new stamp sets – Puppy Party.
The main image in the set is perfectly sized for a slimline card, which is what I created but I found another fun way to string those pups along. Let’s get started.
I started my card by stamping and heat embossing images from the set on Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush pen to watercolor them. Once they were dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then the real fun started.
I cut a slimline panel measuring 8.5×3.5 inches and pulled out some distress oxide inks – abandoned coral and dried marigold. I love them together so much! I think they might be one of my favorite combos. I inked up the panel with some stripes because I wanted shading below my pups on the card
I spritzed the panel with water and blotted it dry. Then I splattered pearl watercolor all over it and black acrylic paint too. A fun way to save a step and add more shimmer – I don’t rinse my watercolor brush between the pearl and black paint so the black gets a little metallic shimmer in it too. If you don’t like that look, just rinse your brush and start fresh.
Next, I cut my puppy line into thirds and arranged everything on my card front so I could adhered things where I want them. Everything is adhered with foam squares and then the whole panel is popped onto a card base with liquid glue. Once that was dry, I used my scissors to trim anything hanging over the edge.
I think this card is so fun and love how the line of dogs just keeps going and going and going. It kind of cracks me up a little. Not to mention the fantastic punny sentiments in the set too! They’re all great!
I truly hope you enjoyed today’s project and found some inspiration to create something wonderful to share with someone.
