The Cutest Little Slimline Card EVER!

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Please join me in welcoming special guest Cheiron Brandon to our blog! Isn’t this card ADORABLE? I smiled the second I saw it! On the heels of seeing lots of AMAZING Halloween inspiration featuring this set it’s really neat to see how versatile this set can be! Read on and enjoy!

Hello there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon here and I am thrilled to share a card with you using some of the newest Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Halloween stamps. My favorite of this new release has to be the brand new Tiny Frights set. There are so many adorable small images and sentiments in this set for Halloween and beyond. I absolutely love the tiny owl and What a Hoot sentiment and thought it would be fun to create a fun everyday owl card with the owls stacked on top of each other by using a little masking. You could also use a stamp positioner to line them all up, but sometimes I find cutting out a simple mask to be easier :) I stamped the owl on some masking paper using Black Soot Archival Distress Ink and cut it out before starting to stamp. 

I stamped the owl that I wanted to be on the bottom first using Black Soot Archival Distress Ink onto a panel of Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I thought it would be fun to stack a few…so I stamped, added the mask to the bottom owl, then stamped again. I removed the mask then moved it up to the image I last stamped and stamped another owl on top and repeated this process until I had 5 owls. Once they were all stacked and stamped I added the What A Hoot Sentiment. To color these owls, I used some Distress Watercolor Pencils and a Detailer Waterbrush

Panel sizes: 

  • Distress Watercolor Panel 8 x 2 3/8
  • Black Mat 2 ½ x 8 1/8 
  • Cotton Candy Panel 3 x 8 ½ 

To create my background panel I used a piece of Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy Cardstock and the Woodgrain Layering Stencil. I ink blended Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink through the stencil to create some fun pink woodgrain for my background. I also inked around the edges of the panel to make it more cohesive. To finish my card, I mounted my owl panel onto a piece of black cardstock to leave a very thin black border, then I mounted the panel onto the woodgrain panel and adhered it to a card base. I hope you enjoyed creating this fun owl card with me today!
