Mini Slimline Card - Woodland Wonder Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute card to share with you today.  This is a card design that's super on trend right now.  Plus I used a super cute new stamp set from the January-June Mini Catalog.  This was a stamp set that I have had my eye on since the catalog came out and I got it a couple of weeks ago.  Here's a look at my card.

If you are intermediated by slimline cards this is a great way to start and build your confidence.  It measures just 3 1/2" x 6".  Your standard slimline card usually measures 3 1/2" x 8 1/2".  So, this is a great way to try out this trendy card layout.

Woodland Wonder Stamp Set:

Make someone's day by sending them fun and playful handmade cards and other paper crafts.  The Woodland Wonder Stamp Set includes balloons, animals from the forest, pieces of a tree that you can put together, and sentiments to let someone know you're thinking of them on their special day.  This is a multiple image stamp set that you can build the scene as large as you would like.

Before I even stamped one little thing on my card today I did some ink blending for the sky using my Blending Brushes and Pool Party, Balmy Blue, and a little Pacific Point Inks.  I tried to keep the center of the card layer with very little ink so that I had a place to stamp the images.  I stamped the the tall part of the tree first then the top of the tree.  I was super surprised at how easily the pieces lined up.  For the clouds I did a little simple masking with some scratch card stock just lined up with the tree.  

Blend ink beautifully using the Blending Brushes. Apply extremely light shades of ink or create soft gradient backgrounds with no lines. Or use them with Decorative Masks or stencils, The velvety soft bristles blend ink perfectly.

Once I had my ink blending done I colored the images with my Stampin' Blends. To enhance the clouds I used Smoky Slate to add some dark shadows in the clouds, but I also used my Stampin' Chalk Marker to come back into the clouds and added back my highlights.  This process takes a little time and you have to build up each layer a little at a time, but the effect is ever so pleasing to the eye.
