Scrap 'N Stamp Slim-sational Blog Hop

Happy New Year!! Welcome to 2021, and our very first Scrap ‘N Stamp Slim-sational Blog Hop!  This is an awesome way to start a new year, if I say so myself. I think that we’re all hoping that 2021 is going to send 2020 into distant memory; hopefully sooner rather than later. To help get you into a positive spirit, enjoy our 1st Blog Hop of the Year, featuring the Picket Fence Studios Slim Line Die Cutting System.


The best way to enjoy our Blog Hop is to settle down, maybe with a favourite beverage or snack. Read each post, marvel at the creativity, and then leave  a comment before hopping onto the next post. Why leave a comment? Because each comment on each Hop post means you’re instantly entered into a random draw to WIN ONE OF THESE SLIM LINE DIE CUTTING SYSTEMS!   After commenting, click on the link provided, and repeat the enjoyment!


Did you know that PFS says that you can create 256 cards, using this complete system?! Yes – 256! Simply by mixing and matching the layouts, the possibilities are almost endless.  You get the following dies with this system: Card base 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″; Layering Base 8 1/4″ x 3 1/4″; 3 Circles 2 1/2″, 3 Squares 2 1/4″.  This system can be used with any die cutting machine that is at least 6″ wide and 8 1/2″ long. So if you have a Big Shot, like me, you’re ready to go!

Once I had decided how I wanted my slim line card to look, I chose the stamps and colours.

First, I cut out the Layering base, with the 3 circles horizontally across the middle. Next, I used my alcohol markers to colour in the grass and fence.  To ensure proper placement of the stamped images, I lightly traced the circles onto another piece of white cardstock of the same size.

Stamp the birds from the Penny Black Wreath & Wings stamp set in Nocturne ink.  Colour with alcohol markers, and then blend on Broken China Distress Oxide ink across the top of all 3 circles. Stamp the sentiment in the middle circle in Nocturne ink. The sentiment is from another PFS stamp set, called Early Tulip Bouquet. I thought that these words were perfectly suited to a New Year’s card!

Layer the die cut top Layering Base over the stamped piece, using foam squares to add dimension. Next, add the card front to a light blue card base. To add more interest to the front, I added some blue and iridescent rhinestones from my stash.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
