Hello crafty friends, it's Kerstin here!
Sometimes I'm not in the mood for coloring or I don't have the time color cute images. Then I love to use bigger die cuts and stencils.
- use the din lang postage cool cut for cutting the panel
- use the Confetti Stencil to create a confetti like background
- for one layer I used glimmer texture paste in yellow
- cut out the sentiment 3 times (1 in yellow and 2 in dark green)
- adhere the sentiments slightly shifted to create a shadow
- adhere the sentiment and the panel to your card base
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 and welcome!! It's Laurie with you today to share a fun, mini slimline card mad with some of the newest products from the shop!
The inspiration for this whole card came from that little "egg" die cut in the centre. This "egg" is actually the wax label die that's part of the Din Lang Postage Cool Cuts! As soon as I seen it, I thought it would make the perfect egg.
I started by creating a card base that measures 6.5 X 3.5 inches. The white panel measures 6.25 X 3.25 inches and mats nicely. I picked two chickens from the new Crazy Chick Stamp Set. I coloured them simply with alcohol markers. I fussy cut each image out.
On the white panel, I ink blended two spots to create a little sky. I went through my die stash and found a fence die which I cut once and cut in half. I also added some grass.
I made two little scenes by foam mounting all the die cuts and chickens. To create the "yolk", I used the smallest die from the Stitched Circle Frames Cool Cuts. I used my markers to colour it yellow.
I temporarily adhered the egg to white panel and using my Misti, I stamped the sentiment. This left stamping on both the egg and the card panel. I did have to do a couple of touch ups with a black pen to fill in areas that didn't stamp well...this was especially around the yellow circle. But very easy to do!
To add a bit of dimension, I did add foam tape to the back of the egg.
I adhered the white panel onto the blue card base and decided to add some drawn lines around the entire panel.
Look through your stash of dies. Often times your imagination will allow you to use some of these shapes in new and unique ways!
