Hello crafty friends, it's Kerstin here!
When the new release arrived I had to try out the new stuff right away.
- use the din lang double stitched cool cut for cutting the panel
- cut out three windows with the smaller double stitched cool cut from the set
- stamp, color and fussy cut the chicks and the cake
- adhere the panel to your card base
- place the images in the windows
We love to see your creations. Please use the hashtag #createasmilestamps when you're sharing your projects on instagram.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Hello! It's Candice happy to be joining you today on the Create a Smile blog with a sweet mini slimline design!
I wanted to create a smaller scene than what would fit on a regular slimline size, so I shrunk it to a mini slimline size!
I began my mini slimline with a 4 x 6 1/2 card base.
For the background, I first die cut the new slimline postage die shortening it by using the partial die cut method (cut half way through the machine, rotate and line up, and run it half way through again!)
I then taped off the edges and inked with the diamond stencil using crackling campfire, spiced marmalade & scattered straw oxide inks.
I finished by clustering my images on the banner with my heat embossed sentiment and sprinkled some blue gems for sparkle!
Fur Real stamps
Fine Ferns stamps
DIN Lang Postage Slimline dies
I am a huge fan of slimline dies and if you are too remember that you can also shorten them for a smaller scene into a mini slimline size!
Thank you for visiting with me today!
