How to Create a Slimline Card with Multiple Images Featuring Pretty Pink Posh & Ellen Hutson Exclusive Stamp Set

We welcome Leica Palma, Pretty Pink Posh Guest Designer as she shares how to incorporate the Summer of Stamping set, Summer Circles, in a slimline design.

Hello friends! It’s Leica here today featuring an exclusive Pretty Pink Posh stamp set for the Summer of Stamping with Ellen Hutson. This set has adorable summer scenes and images, and they are perfect for creating cards and gift tags.

I’ve made a slimline card to showcase this beautiful stamp set called Summer Circles. I started stamping and coloring the images using Copic markers:

Pink/Red: R24/22/20

Orange: YR07/04/02/00

Yellow: Y18/13/11/00

Green: G02/00/0000

Blue: BG05/0000, B02/0000

Violet: V17/15/12/01

Browns: E49/47/44/43/34/33/31/30

For the card base, I cut down a 3.5” x 8.5” panel in white cardstock and inked with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Inks using the Wide Stripes Stencil. I then cut a scallop frame in pink cardstock and adhered it to the panel.

Next, I stamped the sentiments onto the card panel and foam mounted the circles for dimension. In teal cardstock, I added the zigzag circle behind the sun image. This die is included in the coordinating die set for the Summer Circles stamp set. Lastly, I adhered the card panel onto a slimline card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create fun Summer cards for your friends and loved ones. Have a wonderful day!
