Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop: Theme - Spring into Stamping


Welcome to the March GSF Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is Spring into Stamping. Where I live in Colorado we are in our snowiest month of the year - March. But that doesn't stop me from anticipating when my flowers may start growing. Sigh!

So today I am sharing a floral slimline card. I just finished putting together an Artistically Inked Class In The Mail and was playing with Tami Hewlett's coloring technique for the Artistically Inked Stamps. I stamped a  few flowers using her technique, so I got to thinking  about how I could use them on another project. I pulled out the new Slim Sayings Bundle and used it to case her project's flowers. I used the Chevron die to cut some Basic White Cardstock and used that as an overlay on a sheet of Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Alcohol Ink like designs on this paper are just gorgeous.

The colors I have used in the flowers are Pale Papaya & Polished Pink. The sentiment color is Pear Pizzazz. There are some Gold Foil leaves & berry sprigs scattered in with the Expressions In Ink SDSP die cut leaves. The card base is Basic White Thick and the card front is Gold Foil. 

I am not really sure if there is an official Slimline Card size.
So I will just give you the measurements for this one.

Card Base: Basic White Thick - 7 1/2" x 8 3/4", scored @3 3/4"on the 7 1/2" side
