Slimline Cards, Alcohol Ink Background, And Digital Stamps

By | 02/10/2021

Slimline cards are popping up everywhere these days.  I decided to create a fun one using a couple of fabulous slimline die sets that I purchased a while ago when the trend began.

I’m using a very cute set of 3 Little Pigs digital stamps from Kinda Cute by Patricia and a sentiment from my stash.

These little pigs are adorable!  I had a lot of fun coloring them.  I actually printed an entire page of them and experimented with color combinations.  This one was my favorite.

Copic Combination:

R 20, 21, 30, YR 00, BV000

I’ve used 2 slimline dies here.  The pink cardstock is cut with the Sunny Studios Scalloped Frame Die…my favorite slimline of all.  It comes with several word dies which makes it a great value for my crafty dollar.

The top slimline is a Marquee die from Whimsy Stamps.  I love the fun shape of the openings and the stitched detail around the edge of the slimline panel.

I added a background that I created with some Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and gold foil.  It’s been a while since I played with my alcohol inks and my supply is woefully small.  I only had 2 reds and a couple of yellow peachy colors.

The sentiment is from an old Simon Says Stamp set called Beautiful Ride.  I think it is a great sentiment!

You see 2 of the little pigs and the background here.  I’m using the sentiments cut apart into strips a lot lately because they seem to fit better in the spots I want them to go when I cut them apart.

I used a little BV000 to shade the areas I wanted darker.  I was trying to keep the pigs from being either too pink or too yellow.

I also gave my card a lot of dimension this time as well.Slimline card, alcohol ink backgrounds, 3 pigs digital image
