Hello crafty friends! Beata June here, and I'm so excited to show you how to make this fun Cinderella slimline card. I had an idea to transform a halloween pumpkin from one of my Avery Elle halloween stamp sets into a pumpkin carriage, which led to this winter Cinderella scene I made mixing a bunch of Avery Elle stamps together.
Step 1: I used a Tuxedo Black Tsukineko Memento ink pad and my Misti stamping tool to stamp the pumpkin from the Avery Elle Boo To You clear stamp set for my pumpkin carriage. Then I colored the carriage with various copic markers, and cut it out with my Tim Holtz Kushgrip Non-Stick Micro Serrated Scissors.
Step 2: To decorate my pumpkin carriage, I drew a door for the pumpkin carriage, and decorated it by drawing a "C" for Cinderella using a waterproof black ink pen, and colored the door with copics. I stamped 6 leaves from the Avery Elle Sunflowers clear stamp set, colored them with copic markers, cut them out and glued them around the carriage door using a Lawn Fawn glue tube. Then I stamped the ribbon banner from the Avery Elle Cocoa Stand clear stamp set, colored it with copics, cut it out, and glued it to the top of my carriage door using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.
Step 3: To make the wheels for the carriage, I stamped a train car from the Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Christmas Train clear stamp set, colored them with copic markers, and then cut out the wheels. I used a white gel pen to white out/"erase" the extra stamped portions of the train car I didn't want to show up to make the carriage wheels. Then I glued the wheels on to the bottom of my pumpkin carriage using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.
Step 4: Next, I stamped the three cute winter mice from the Avery Elle Christmas Mice stamp set using a Tuxedo Black Tsukineko Memento ink pad and my Misti stamping tool, colored the mice with various copic markers and cut them out with my Tim Holtz Kushgrip Micro Serrated Scissors. (Alternatively, you can use the coordinating dies to the Christmas Mice stamp set.)
Step 5: Then, I stamped stamped two unicorns and the street lamps from the Avery Elle Christmas Magic clear stamp set, colored them with copic markers, and cut out my colored images using my Tim Holtz Kushgrip Micro Serrated Scissors. (A Coordinating die set for the Christmas Magic stamp set is also available.)
Step 6: I made Cinderella's fairy godmother by stamping a fairy from the Avery Elle Fairy Happy clear stamp set and the star wand from the Avery Elle Cocoa Stand clear stamp set. I colored them with various copics, cut them out with my Tim Holtz Kushgrip Micro Serrated Scissors, and glued my "magic wand" onto the fairy's hand using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.
Step 7: For Cinderella, I used a mermaid from the Avery Elle Mermaids clear stamp set. I stamped the mermaid with a Tuxedo Black Tsukineko Memento ink pad and then wiped away the ink from the bottom half of the mermaid stamp (erasing the mermaid tail and the bottom of her shell top), and then stamped the remaining inked image onto white cardstock using my Misti stamping tool. Then I drew the top of the dress and straps onto the mermaid, and a headband and bun on top of her hair using a waterproof black ink pen. I used a white gel pen to white out/"erase" the mermaid's long hair from my stamped image. Then I colored my Cinderella mermaid with copics, cut her out and glued her to the inside of the pumpkin carriage using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.
Step 8: To make my card background, I cut out a slimline panel from light blue cardstock using a Trinity Stamps stitched slimline rectangle die and my Sizzix Big Shot machine. Then I blended Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire distress oxide inks onto my blue slimline card panel using my Picket Fence Life Changing Blender Brushes.
Step 9: I made the grass layer for my card with green cardstock using my Sizzix Big Shot machine and the grass die from the My Favorite Things Die-Namics - Pop-Up Wiper Card Components set. I blended Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss Distress Oxide Inks using Picket Fence Life Changing Blender Brushes onto my green cardstock, and then glued the grass panel onto my blue stitched slimline card panel using a Lawn Fawn glue tube.
Step 10: Finally, I glued all of my colored images onto my card panel using a Lawn Fawn glue tube, added white highlights to my images using a white gel pen, and mounted my finished card panel onto my white card base. (Photo 2.)
It was so fun transforming my halloween pumpkin stamp into a magical carriage, which inspired the rest of this Cinderella scene. Thanks for following along to learn how I made this winter Cinderella slimline card!
