Hey, everyone! Today is a new release at Taylored Expressions and it's all about the popular Mini Slim card size (3.5" x 6"). There are new stamps, dies, and stencils all designed to coordinate with the Mini Slim size, but you can also use them with other card sizes too. I have two Mini Slim cards to share with you today that are created with some of the new products and both cards are a bit more than a standard card: one is a shaker card and one is a trifold card!
The new products for the More Mini Slim Essentials release are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!
This first card is a Mini Slim Trifold Card that is created with the new Tickled Pink Stamp & Stencil Combo set. You can wither create your own trifold card base or purchase pre-made trifold bases in the TE webstore. The flamingo in the Stamp & Stencil Combo set is sized to work on a Mini Slim sized card and there are stencils to add color with your blender brushes. I stamped the flamingo on Sugar Cube cardstock and used blender brushes to add Pink Champagne and Guava inks to color the flamingo. I used Copic markers to add details and then added a layer of Stickles Moon Dust glitter gel and a little bit of Lollipop glitter over the wing for extra sparkle. I let the glitter gel dry and then cut out the flamingos with the coordinating Tickled Pink die.
I added the flamingo to the inside of the trifold card so it peeks through the windows that are cut out with the Mini Slim Trifold Template + Dies - Square set. The front of the card is stenciled with the new Mini Slim Tropical Leaves stencil in Sugar Cube ink.
Opening the card to the next layer reveals a background stenciled with the Mini Slim Wonky Dots stencil in Toffee ink. The sentiments from the Tickled Pink Stamp & Stencil set are stamped on all of the layers of the card with Oreo ink.
The inside of the trifold card has a layer of Avocado cardstock that is stenciled with the Mini Slim Tropical Leaves stencil using Avocado ink. The 'you're flamazing!' sentiment is one line in the Tickled Pink Stamp & Stencil Combo set and I cut it apart to stamp the sentiment in two lines.
Hearts are sprinkled throughout the trifold card that are cut out from Pink Champagne Cardstock that has a Sticky Sheet layered on the front with the smallest Heart Stacklets die. Once the hearts are cut out, I removed the paper backing from the Sticky Sheet, added Lollipop glitter to them, and added them to the card.
This Mini Slim card created with the Little Critters stamp set and new coordinating dies is a shaker card! The front panel of the card is cut out using the Mini Slim Square Window Cutting Plate from Toffee cardstock and I stenciled it with the Mini Slim Wonky Dots stencil once with Toffee ink and then again with Sugar Cube ink after I turned the stencil 90 degrees. The sentiment from the Little Critters stamp set is stamped in Oreo ink under the center window.
I backed the two side windows with acetate and added frames around each window that are cut out using a Square Window Frames die. Foam Sticky Strips formed the shaker boxes that I filled with Bits & Pieces - Full of Heart and a few glittered hearts. The glittered hearts are the same as what I created for the flamingo card above!
I colored the sloth from the Little Critters set with Copic markers, cut him out with the new coordinating dies, and added him to the center window the card, popped up with Foam Sticky Strips. I added another glittered heart to the sloth to finish off the card.
