Slimline Waves Say Cheese by Whimsy Stamps

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Please join me in a warm welcome to first time special guest Deb Davis of Whimsy stamps on our blog today!

Hey there fabulous fellow card makers, are you lovin’ the slimline card trend that’s all the rage right now? I sure am, and I’m excited to be on the Simon Says Stamp blog today sharing a card using the NEW Slimline Waves Die from the innovators of slimline dies…Whimsy Stamps.

We debuted these fresh new dies a few months ago and since then I can’t seem to stop making anything but slimline cards (lol), fair warning, they are addictive!And now that you’ve been duly warned of their addictiveness ;) let’s make one…

If you’re not familiar with the size of slimline cards (also known as tall & skinny cards) they’re super easy to make, here’s how:

Start with an 8.5 x 11 piece of card stock and cut it to 8.5 x 7 then put the 7″ side at the top of your score board and score it at 3.5″, fold it on the score line and voila you’ve just made your first slimline card base!

And what’s extra cool is the left over 8.5 x 4 piece is the perfect sized piece to cut out your slimline die shape.

For my card today, I decided to use white card stock for the Slimline Waves frame instead of using the leftover black piece.

Once I had the slimline card base and frame cut out, I also used the Slimline Waves Die to cut out a few pieces of the black & white striped paper that’s from the NEW Starring Hearts Paper Pack (one of my fav paper packs ever).

For the other elements on the card I stamped several of the mischievous little rats, and their various cheeses from the NEW Say Cheese clear stamp set then water colored them using Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Hickory Smoke, Fossilized Amber, Tattered Rose, and Rusty Hinge).

Once they were dry I cut them out using the matching NEW Say Cheese Die Set.

Aren’t these little guys just the cutest?! I’m not sure if they are helping each other to get the cheese or if they are trying to steal the cheese from each other…what do you think?

To assemble everything I first glued the white Slimline Waves frame flat onto the front of the black card base. Then I glued the black & white striped paper into three of the openings. And to add a little more dimension, I popped up all the rats with Gina K Foam Tape.

To complete my card I heat embossed a few of the the Say Cheese sentiments with white embossing powder on black card stock and just cut them out with scissors and popped them up with foam tape as well.

The Whimsy Stamps slimline dies make tall & skinny cards so quick and easy, you can check out all of them HERE. -I hope you enjoyed today’s post and I hope to see you sharing lots of creative slimline cards with us soon…have FUN!

Thanks so much!Deb

  4. What a fun card! And I love making cards this size, but I have never seen any background dies that fit that size of card before. So excited to see some come out.

  5. Now THOSE are some rats! I like their pink noses. I know that a lot of people don’t like rats, but I do. Happy Chinese New Year :)

  6. What a fun card. This mouse stamp set is so cute. I am going to have to look into these slimline designs. Always learning something new on SSS blog.

  7. Super fun card Deb, I just love the mice who (I think) are helping each other to steel all the chees LOL.
    Thank you so much for this gorgeous inspiration and the tutorial. Have a great day.

  8. THANKS SO MUCH for all the nice comments, they really mean a lot to me! I’m glad you all enjoyed my post and THANK YOU to Simon Says Stamp for featuring me and Whimsy Stamps :)! HAPPY STAMPING
