Streamside Studios May Release

It’s a new month which means some new release goodness from Streamside Studios

Today I’m sharing this seriously adorable mini set.

To make this card.

Start by die cutting multiple clouds.

Ink blend a panel using vintage patina and die cut using a stitched rectangle die.

Line up your clouds on your die cut panel and place rectangle die on top and tape clouds to the metal die. Run through machine. Your clouds will now line up to your panel and have the stitching on the edges.

Add foam tape to the back of each cloud and attach to panel.

Reserve one cloud and stamp sentiment.

Glue down the sweet image and attach everything to a white card base.

Rainbow Tags

This month Rubbernecker Stamps has there design team focusing on all the awesome background stamps they carry.

This is definitely my favourite company for background stamp choices. From florals to stripes and everything in between there is so many to choose from. And with so many uses for background stamps It’s one of those craft room items that I always invest in.

Heres the steps to create these rainbow inspired tags. I even pulled out my long and forgotten flocking powder for these pretties.

Die cut tags from patterned card stock, if thin paper die cut a tag from white card stock and glue the patterned tag to the front.

Emboss background stamps on white card stock with white embossing powder,  Die cut tags from the embossed background.  You will get 2 tags out of each back ground stamp using the second largest tag.

Ink blend a rainbow on the tags and wipe excess ink off.

Hole punch or use the die for the hole.

Die cut 2 part butterfly.

Cover bottom part of butterfly with glue and cover with flocking powder, leave the center part of the butterfly plain.

Cover top part of butterfly with shimmer pen, attach rhinestones to antenna and glue to the flocked butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by! Sharing a fun slimline card today using the most adorable woodland stamp set from Streamside Studios.

Woodland Friends Stamp Set

Scalloped Frame Die

I started with a slimline card base and layered a scalloped slimline die cut with a cloud pattern stencilled in spun sugar oxide ink. I layered a hills die at the bottom that was coloured with mowed lawn oxide ink.

I coloured the large tree stamp in copics and glued off to the side of my card. I ran it through the cutting machine before gluing down with the scalloped frame die to line it up to the scalloped panel I was gluing it to.

A few grass patches and some falling leaves were added to the card as well as a heat embossed sentiment.

I used the tire swing in the stamp set and added die cut leaves to it to create a pretty leafy swing.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!
