Hello Sunshine Mini Slim Card

Hello Sunshine Mini Slim Card

Today, I have a mini slim card featuring the Cosmos Florals Set from the Summer release.  This set is wonderful. I love the images of the florals and leaves.  And if you do not like to color you can use the coordinating stencil to quickly ink blend your images and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.  

 

The first thing I did was stamp out all the flower images from the Cosmos Florals stamp set with Disappearing ink on some Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper in my Misti. Then I used the Coordinating stencil to ink up the flowers using a variety of Simon Hurley Create Inks.  For the first layer I used Over the Moon, the detail layer of the flowers was Shooting Star.  The centers of the flowers was Grrr! and the stems were inked with Overzealous.

Once I was happy with my inking, I lined my panel back up in my Misti and stamped Raven Detail Ink over the images and cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I also stamped out the Hello Sunshine sentiment from the set and cut that out with the matching die.  (Yes the sentiments from the set have dies to match.  YAY!)

Next I took another piece of paper and lightly blended the Shooting Star ink over the Sweet Swirls Stencil and cut the panel down to 6" x 3." I layered that on a piece of yellow glitter stock that I used two rectangle mini slim dies from my stash to cut a frame.  Using liquid glue I affixed the flowers and sentiment to the front of my Sweet Swirls panel.  Then I adhered the Glitterstock frame around my images.

To finalize my card, I attached everything to my card base which was made out of white cardstock that measures 3.25" x 6.25," which is my preferred size for mini slimline cards.  If you haven't checked out the summer release from Brutus Monroe pop over to the store and look around.  What are your favorites?
