Color Me Happy


Hi Crafty Friends,

I have a paint themed slimline card to share with you today.

For my card I used one of the paint brush die sets that were designed by Vicky Papaioannou for Spellbinders Paper Arts. This die set is called the Artful Brush. I die cut the various elements from coloured cardstock including the large paint splot, which I die cut from both reddish brown and green and then cut one down the middle and layered over the other.

When I was making my card I remembered that I had some swirly papers from Whimsy Stamps, so I pulled them out and found this fun reddish brown & green pattern which I decided to use for my card. I trimmed it slightly to fit onto a 3 1/2 inch x 8 1/2 inch side fold card.

To layer my paintbrush, I used Whimsy Stamps Mini Slimline Notched dies and Hot Foil Stamps. I first hot foiled one of the hot foil plates included in the Mini Slim Notched Foil Plate set using Aura Foil. I then used on of the dies included in the Mini Slimline Notched die set to die cut around the outside of the foiled frame. I used the other notched set .... Mini Slim Notched Stitched die set to die cut the reddish brown panel panel.

To finish off the front of the card I added a sentiment from the Paint Your World Sentiment set.

For the inside of my card, I used the Mini Slim Notched and Mini Slim Notched Stitched die sets to die cut my white and green panels and adhered them to the centre of the inside panel. I then added another of the sentiments included in the Paint My World Sentiments set.

I die cut two more paint brushes and adhered them to my card so that the handles go off the edge of the card.
