September Sneaky Peek #5

It’s Day #5 of Sneaky Peek Week. Just a couple more sleeps before we finish Sneaky Peek Week. I hope that you’ve been enjoying all the hops, so far.

Slimline cards are big, big, big! If you haven’t gotten in on the craze, cards are designed to fit in a long envelope. Generally, the size is 3.5” x 8.5”, but there are several long sized envelopes out there that you can make your cards to.

Slimline Basics

So, when Cat Packer Wendy McGaffey asked me to design a couple of Slimline dies, I was all over it. The first set, I call Slimline Basics. It’s 4 separate dies, two of which have stitching.

The dies are wide enough to go end to end and are great for making a scene, like Nancy Thomas does matched with our NEW Simply Blessed Bundle. She also adds a wee bit of foliage using our NEW Stitched Tree Die and Oh Christmas Tree Bundle

Here’s a bit of fairy sweetness from Brenda Nakandakari using the all four dies from the set and the sweet sweet Simply Blessed Stamp Set.

Want more fairy goodness? Well alright then. Leigh O’Brien creates this fairy village with the cloud die from the NEW Slimline Basics CutUps AND our NEW Slimline Suburbs CutUps.

Here’s the second set of Dies in our September Collection, Slimline Suburbs. This set consists of three dies. The houses and fence have embossed stitching and the third die, I like to call a road. It cuts a solid line and stitching.

I don’t know what it is about this card from  Wendy McGaffey, but I instantly thought of Anne of Green Gables when I saw it. You know, the scene when Anne gets off the train and is just waiting and waiting for Matthew to pick her up? There’s something so powerful about this scene, with the one saying from our NEW Follow Your Arrow stamp Set and the single red heart.

Finally, this amazing card from Julee Tilman. She uses the fence from the NEW Slimline Suburbs CutUps.  She spooks up the clouds behind. (They are from the NEW Slimline Basics CutUps Set) And uses the NEW Stitched Owl as the focal point. The sentiment and bats add the finishing touch.
