Sending Big Hugs


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Just like Slimline Cards, Mini Slimline Cards are also becoming very popular, for our challenge this week create a Mini Slimline card. Typically Mini Slim Line Cards are either 3 1/2 inches x 6 inches or 3 inches x 6 inches. More info on Mini Slimline cards can be found in the files section of the Slimline Card Addicts Facebook Group. 

When I was looking through the stash of stamps and dies that sit on my table, I came across Hello Bluebirds Ocean Scene die which I haven't used as yet, looking at it I could see how it could be used as a grass scene rather than an ocean one. I die cut the Ocean Scene die from white cardstock and then used Distress Oxide inks in green and grey to color each of the various piece. I layered this onto a Mini Slimline panel that I die cut using Waffle Flower Crafts' Mini Slimline Layers die set. This rectangle panel I colored using blue inks.

To decorate my card I used stamps from Lawn Fawns Happy Hugs stamp set.

For the "Thinking of You" sentiment I used the sentiment stamp with coordinating die from Honey Bee Stamps Thinking of You Big Time stamp set.

For the inside of the card I created a pop-up card using the pop-up die from Karen Burniston's Street Lantern Pop-up die set.

I used Lawn Fawn's Sending Big Hugs die which I die cut from cardstock blended with blue inks and black cardstock and layered together to off set. I then added a few of the animals from Happy Hugs stamp set.

Along the bottom of the card I added the grass and path I created using the Hello Bluebird's Ocean Scene die. Along the top edge of my card I added clouds using Trinity Stamps Slimline Scene Border die set.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
