Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a slimline card featuring the All Occasion Critters Clear Stamp Set from the Time For Tea Designs July release. There are so many adorable critters in this set – my favourite has to be the piggy with the coffee! Because I just love my cappuccinos and frappuccinos!
To start, I cut down some white card stock to 8 by 3 inches and applied Lawn Fawn’s Manatee ink as well as Hickery Smoke Distress ink to the Brick Wall Stencil on the bottom 3/4. For the top section I stamped the Squiggly Giggly stamp set with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. I also applied the same colour using my Beautiful Blender Brush on top of the stamp to create the sky. I then added some water spots as well as white speckles with some watercolour.
I die cut the hexagons using the Bee Happy Hexagon Stitched Nesting Dies from the inked background. I also used the same dies to cut out a white boarder. I adhered the white boarders to the inked background on the back using tape.
I cut some heavy weight card stock to 3 1/2 wide by 8 1/2 inches tall and coloured the edges with my black copic marker. I lined up the insides of the hexagon pieces that were die cut with their appropriate opening and glued them down to the card base. After stamping and colouring the critters with my copics I adhered them into the openings.
Next I added foam tape to the back of the 8 x 3 inch background and added it to the card stock lining it up with the critters and hexagon areas.
I stamped the ‘enjoy your day’ sentiment from Hip Hop Horray and die cut it out using the banner die from the Mini Frame & Banner Die Set. The banner was a bit larger than the sentiment so I did some partial die cutting to make it smaller.
After adhering the sentiment banner to the card, I die cut some silver hearts and added them to the card to finish it off.
