Whimsy Stamps’ Slimline Dies Video Hop | Sugar Skull Cuties and Slimline Marquee Die

Hi everyone, welcome to my stop on the Whimsy Stamps’ Slimline Dies Video Hop. Did you know that Whimsy Stamps is the innovator of slimline dies, having been the first company to manufacture and introduce dies designed to help you create those increasingly-popular, slimline cards?

To celebrate that achievement, we are having a Video Hop and an Instagram Hop and giving one lucky follower a $25 gift certificate to the store.

For my card, I created a Dia De Muertos inspired card featuring the newly released Sugar Skull Cuties and the Slimline Marquee Die.

Sugar Skull Cuties and Slimline Marquee Die

This card is all about the ink blending combined with the stunning die and those adorable images. I applied Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserve Distress Ink across an 8.5 by 3.5 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock. I added black and white splatters to the background with watered down acrylic paint.
