Gossip Girls Slimline Cards | Whimsy Stamps June Mini Release

Happy Friday Crafty Friends!

Today I have two slimline cards featuring the brand new Filmstrip Slimline Die and the new Gossip Girls stamp set and coordinating dies!

Both of my slimline card bases are 8 1/2 x 3 1/2, this is the size I always use. Some crafters use different measurements, but that's totally up to you what size you prefer, I just prefer this size because I know it fits perfectly in a #10 business envelope.

For my first card here I only used the lips/mouth from the Gossip Girls stamp set along with the new 6x6 Cosmic paper pack. After creating my slimline card base I die cut the Filmstrip die with 100 lb. cardstock. It's hard to see the details of the die on this card because of the white on white. I used the filmstip die again to cut the Cosmic paper, and adhered all of these die cuts to my card base using liquid glue.
Next I stamped the mouth three times on 80 lb. Neenah Solar white cardstock using Copic safe black ink. After coloring the images I die cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Adopt Don't Shop Dogs clear stamp set and white heat embossed it onto black cardstock and used my paper trimmer to create a label.

And to complete the card I added shimmer, white highlights with a Gelly Roll pen, and matching enamel dots.

For my second slimline card I die cut the Fimstrip die twice from black cardstock. I used the negative center squares from the first card to stamp my images. I adhered the first filmstrip to the card base with liquid glue. For the second strip I use Scor-tape and adhered it on top of the other. I saved the black and white tiny squares that pop out and adhered those back in place on the strip. Black, white, black, white, etc.

Then the white squares I kept, I stamped the Gossip Girls and one of the sentiments in blue and the mouth in black along with the other two sentiments. I used a very like pink Copic marker to add a little color. I then masked the images with masking tape. I used the little dots from the Twinkle Stencil to add some interest to the background with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. I also ink blended around the edges and used liquid glue to adhere them in place.

To complete this card I added shimmer to the colored areas, white highlights with a Gelly Roll pen, and silver star sequins.

And that completes my cards for today!
