I knew I wanted to highlight these awesome borders. When I looked at this stamp set I saw two groupings jump out to me. I have been totally loving rainbow colors so that inspired one of my cards.

Here there are individually.

I went with most of the rainbow colors using the light side of Candy Apple, Nectarine, Canary, Green Apple, Bluebird, and Grape cardstock. I stamped tone on tone using the Outdoor Borders stamp set. Then using the Months of the Year – June for the sentiment and envelope. I also used the Stitched Bracket Thin Cuts. I added a couple of red dots from my stash.

For this card I used Avocado, Toffee, and Peacock cardstock and inks. I used the Stitched Fancy Bracket Thin Cuts for the sentiment. The sentiment and accents are from the Take a Hike stamp and thin cuts, I colored the backpack and water bottle details with my markers. The last detail was the Gold Glitter Gems.

Slimline Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the Slimline Card Blog Hop!

If you are just arriving here from DARLYS RECKER’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 13 Makers participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I decided to use the new Thin Cut Circles to make this card. I used the 2 inch circle to make the cuts. Here is how I designed it.

I stared with a 3 x 8 inch piece of Daisy White. I drew a line down the center at 1 1/2 inches. I then made tick marks at 1/2 inch, 2 1/2 inch, 3 inch, 5 inch, 5 1/2 inch and 7 1/2 inch. I then lined the circle thin cut up in the 2 inch spaces.

This is what it looked like. I then erased the pencil marks. I then used Chipped Sapphire and Peeled Paint oxide inks to color the base. I used the circles to stamp the images from the Take a Hike Stamp Set. I added a couple of the Wood Arrows and Black Dots.

Your next stop is along this hop is MY HEARTFELT SENTIMENTS  so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!
