Tutorial Thursday - Slimline card ❤ la-la land crafts



Tamara here with you. Have you noticed how crazy popular slimline cards are for the last few months? They are everywhere and they are sooooo much fun to make. You don't need fancy slimline dies to create one and today I'll show you how to make a simple slimline card for a friend.

What you need:
white cardstock
distress oxide ink pads (tumbled glass, broken china)
blending tool
colouring medium

la-la land crafts items you need:
Stitched Sun and Clouds Die
Coffee is Life Clear Stamp Set
Summer is Here Layering Stencil
Stitched Clouds Border Die

Step 1:
Cut 3 3/4 x 8" rectangle from white cardstock. I use watercolour paper because it's easier to apply colour later.

  Step 2:
Take your cloud stencil and start makeing cloudy background using Broken China Distress Oxide on the bottom clouds and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide on the middle and top ones. Move your stencil, so that the clouds don't look all the same.


Step 3:
Cut a small rectangle 2 x 3 3/4" from white cardstock and cut o+it on the top with Cloud border die. This will be the bottom of our card.
Die cut 3 clouds: one big one and two smaller ones. Stamp your images and colour them with your chosen colouring medium and then fussy cut them.
Stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set and cut it out.

 Step 4:
Glue the white cloudy piece on the bottom of the card.

Step 5:
Add foam tape to the back of the images and sentiment.

Step 6:
Glue your images to the card base. Make sure to glue the sentiment straight.


Step 7:
Add some glitter to the ropes or coffe cups and that's it. Your CAS Coffe friends card is done.

That's it from my end.
Hugs, t.

There There ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella


Tamara here with you. For today's post I made a very clean and simple card. I love this image, it has such a powerful message that it doesn't need any extra embellishments, flowers, die cuts ... There are often situations in our lives when we need someone to hold our hand or just to be there for us. Giving a card with this image (and sentiment) or sending it to someone in need can really make their day. 

Image is called There There Tiny Townie and it comes with the sentiment "Everything will be ok".

Image was stamped with Archival Ink - Jet black on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up using Distress ink pads.

 Distress Ink colours used:

skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
pink outfit: victorian velvet, black soot
blue outfit: stormy sky, black soot
shirt: black soot
letter, envelope: old letter, black soot

Have a great Sunday!

Hugs, t.

Little Bits ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you sharing a Fall card. I loveeeee making Fall cards. Years ago when I started making cards, Fall cards were my least favourite, but I think it was the lack of pretty Fall images not the theme itself. Well, I do love them now. The images, the colours, leaves, animals ... all of it.

Fot this week's post I made another slimline card, a tall one. I used images from three different sets:

All images were stamped with Archival Ink - Jet Black on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up using Distress ink pads and fussy cut.

Distress ink pads used:
mushrooms: barn door, fired brick, black soot
hedgie: vintage photo, walnut stain
acorns: walnut stain, forest moss
leaves: walnut stain, vintage photo, ages magahony, spiced marmelade, forest moss, barn door
fox: spiced marmalade, rusty hinge

Barckground was created with Distress Oxides.

Sentiment "happy" is just the first part of the sentiment Happy mail that comes with Tiny Townie Lacey has a letter.

Have a lovely Sunday!
