Stampin’ Up! Sunny Splash Slimline Card with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  Whoo-hoo!  If you’re like me (yes, even now that I’m retired!) the weekend is stretching out ahead of you and it feels like it’s such a LONG time before you have to go to work again!  Surely it’s not just me?!  That feeling is so wonderful, isn’t it!?  I hope you get to enjoy the time “off”! 🙂

I’ve got a cool card for you – it’s a Slimline card – and it’s perfect as we head into hot (aka “pool” season) time of the year!  The sweet little Sunny Splash stamp set features fun bathing suits and sentiments – I added some 2022-2024 In Color DSP and a little texture with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

While this one is in Tahitian Tide – the one that I made yesterday on my Facebook Live video is rocking Sweet Sorbet!  If you were able to watch me make it, I appreciate you spending part of your week with me.  If not, but you’d like to – here’s a link to the replay on YouTube!

I started by using one of the fun masks in the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush to add some Daffodil Delight to a Basic White panel.  I did one end of the panel and then the other – lining up the little fluer-de-do’s to keep the pattern going.  Tip: remember to start blending OFF the panel so you can ensure there’re no big clumps of ink on your brush!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Tahitian Tide (or Sweet Sorbet) mat.

Using the next-to-largest circle die in the Stylish Shapes Die set, I cut three circles from 2022-2024 In Color DSP – two from the flowered pattern and one from the polka dot pattern.  I used Tahitian Tide and Sweet Sorbet papers.  Then I adhered the circles to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Tip: to help get them spaced evenly, adhere the two end circles first – then add the third in the middle!

I stamped a Sunny Splash sentiment on a narrow piece of Basic White in Tahitian Tide (or Sweet Sorbet) ink.  Then I matted the panel on matching cardstock and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped three of the bathing suits from Sunny Splash – one in Daffodil Delight and two in Mango Melody.  I fussy cut each of them and then adhered them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a little bow from the matching twine in the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a scrunched up HALF of a Glue Dot.

To the Tahitian Tide card, I added some Daffodil Delight and Pool Party gems from the Glossy Dots pack.  On the Sweet Sorbet card, I added Sweet Sorbet dots from the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots and some Daffodil Delight Glossy Dots.  And that was it for the card fronts.

On the inside, I added more of the masked blending in Daffodil Delight in the corners of a Basic White panel.  Then I added a Mango Melody swimsuit and a Sunny Splash sentiment.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a color-matching mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Slimline Envelope got the Sunny Splash swimsuits on the front in Tahitian Tide or Sweet Sorbet…

…and a little bit of the 2022-2024 In Color DSP on the scalloped envelope flap.

Just to add – the Slimline Envelopes all have pretty printing on the inside of the envelope flap!  Yeah!  #nonekkidenvelopes!

Et Voila!  The Sunny Splash set is a flyover set for sure – easy to miss.  Take another swing thru the catalog though – and check it out – it’s WAY too cute not to have as we head into summer!!  If you like to do masking be sure to check out all the fun possibilities in the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks.  And the Slimline Envelopes take away ANY excuse I – or you! – have for not making Slimline cards! 😉

I hope you like!
