Slimline Peek-a-boos

Hey friends!  Katie here today with some fun slimline peek-a-boo cards.  But first, I have to know if you are LOVING the fall release as much as me?  I can’t stop creating with it!  What is your fave new product?  Slimline stamps?  New dies?  Paper? Soooo much to choose from!

OK, onto the cards for today and I have two!  First up features some of the new release items: 

This card features some of the awesome new slimline products.  First, you’ll notice the new Slimline Woodsy Background Stamp which I stamped in black on dark brown paper.  Then I used the Slimline Lift the Flap set to cut out some windows.      I die cut the outside using the new Slimline Modern Embossed Frame.   i stamped and colored some of the elements from the Woodsy background set to place on the front and used the Slimline Woodsy Background dies to cut them out. I used the slimline Great Outdoors Borders and Builders for the grass along the bottom.  You’ll notice I used some of the cut bugs from the Bunny Burrow Stamp and Bunny Burrow Die on the front as well.  And did you notice, my worm has googly eyes?!  LOLOLOL.  

On the inside, I used some distress inks with my Blending Buddy to make dark hollows in my tree.  I also added more leaves and acorns as well as more Bunny Burrow critters.  The racoon on the top has a coffee cup from the Frappy Camper’s Perking Spot set.  The sentiment, which perfectly accompanies the lightning bug is from Oracle Octopus. 

I am pretty happy with this one, I love the cuteness! 

Next up, I am going to take you back in time to summer…. 

This card uses a lot of the same elements on the outside (Lift the Flap) but is turned on it’s side.  Instead of stamping a woodgrain here, I used woodgrain paper.  I wanted it to look like porthole windows.  I think the wood could have been darker, but that’s OK.  For this one I used the Marshmallow Alphabet to create the SOS message in yellow paper. 

On the inside of the flaps, I created that water scene as if you are looking out the portholes.  I had some bubble DP and that made the perfect background.  For the elements, I stamped and colored images using my Copics.  The sentiment and some of the images are from Shark Bait, Turtley Awesome and Ocean Reef Builder.  A few fun details include the paper pieced board shorts and the glossy accents on the snorkel gear.  The sentiment really pulls the SOS message together. 

There are lots of other ways to create peek-a-boo cards, but these are just easy and fun.  I hope you are inspired to make your own!
