Slimline Spring Hello Card: All the Sentiments Stamps & Dies | Stampendous

Hello and welcome back to my blog; today I am sharing a slimline card that's perfect for spring hellos and beyond. This card could actually be used for multiple occasions based on what sentiments you used on the front of the card. If you have followed me you know that I love a good sentiment set. It's a must for any craft room or crafty area. With a good sentiment set you can turn any stamps, dies, embossing folder, or other crafty tool into the perfect card to suit your needs!

Slimline Spring Hello Card:

My spring hello slimline card today features the All the Sentiments Stamps & Dies and the Sincere Sentiments Stamp Set both from Stampendous/Spellbinders. On my card I created the focal images with the emboss resist technique using the leaf stamp from the Sincere Sentiments Stamp Set (from Spellbinders) and a little Clear Gloss Embossing Powder (from WOW Embossing).

Get the Look:

To achieve the look I created for my card today you will need to cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Ultra Thick Cardstock to 7" x 8 1/2" (17.7 cm x 21.6 cm scored at 8.9 cm) and score on the 7" side at 3 1/2". For the focal panels you are going to need four pieces of smooth white cardstock that measures 1 3/4" x 2 13/16" (4.5 cm x 7.1 cm). Next prep the cardstock that for heat embossing with your CottonTail Embossing Powder Tool (from the Rabbit Hole Designs).


Pro Tip: Even thorough WOW Embossing Powders have an antistatic agent in them its better to prep the cardstock so that there's nothing that sticks to the oils from your hands to the cardstock.

Once the cardstock is prepped you are going to stamp the leaf image from the Sincere Sentiments Stamp Set on each on of these pieces with Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink Pad (from WOW Embossing). Once you have your images stamped it's time start the fun. Cover each with some Clear Gloss Embossing Powder (from WOW Embossing) and heat set with your Heat Tool until smooth and melted. Set each aside to cool. While the pieces are cooling and your heat embossing supplies are out. Go ahead and stamp the Hello from the All the Sentiments Stamp Set in Embossing Ink on a scrap of prepped Pitch Black Cardstock (from Hero Arts) and cover with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder (from WOW Embossing). Heat set and let cool before die cutting the sentiment out with the matching die.

With four heat embossed panels completely cool you are going to use your CottonTail Blending Brushes (from The Rabbit Hole Designs) and do a little ink blending on each panel. For the ink blending you are going to pick for different ink colors and each panel will be a different spring time color. For my ink colors I picked (in order on the card) Peach Fuzz, Sparkling Rose, Olive and Coral Reef all from Pinkfresh Studios. You want to start in one corner and work your way to the opposite corner building up the ink blending to create a gradient effect. Once your ink blending is complete take a dry paper towel and buff off any excess ink from the embossed areas.


Pro Tip: Start with a light hand and build up the color during the ink blending process to achieve a better ink blend.

Once all your ink blending is complete you are going to mat each of the panels onto a mat layer of Pitch Black Cardstock cut at 1 7/8" x 2 7/8" (4.7 cm x 7.3 cm). You only want the tiny little boarder around the images. Once you have your panels matted then you are going to lay them out on the slimline card base. Make sure to space them evenly. Once they are spaced evenly you can start in the middle and attach them with liquid adhesive. Once all the panels are attached go ahead and stamp a sub-sentiment from the All the Sentiments Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of white cardstock in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink.

To finish off the card add your heat embossed and die cut Hello from the All About Sentiments Stamp Set and attach it to the card front. If you want a little more dimension on your hello go ahead and die cut just the outline die a couple times from the same cardstock and adhere them together before attach the heat embossed sentiment on top. Which by the way is totally optional. Attach the sub-sentiment below this. And then add a little sparkle to your card by adding a few of your favorite embellishments.


And there you have it my friends, this is how I created the Slimline Spring Hello Card using the All the Sentiment Stamps & Dies and the Sincere Sentiments Stamp Set.
