Presenting: A Slimline Card with Charlie Chaplin

It's Tuesday which means it's my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. I love to contain images within other images, so when I saw Darkroom Door's Filmstrip Frame Red Rubber Cling Stamp, I knew it would be ever-so-useful. 

Then AALL and Create released the Charlie Clear Stamp Set #428 by Janet Klein and I really hoped that the two would work together. Hurray! They did! Not only that, but Stan and Ollie and both Marilyn stamps from the Marilyn set fit in the frame too. BTW, those sets are all by Janet Klein for AALL and Create.

Here's the card.

A Note: I googled Charlie Chaplin to find out the color of his eyes. I found out that they were a beautiful blue. I also found out that his birthday was April 16!

  1. Use a stamp platform and position the stamp facedown onto a piece of 8.5" x 5" cardstock (which should be secured with magnets). The stamp's right edge should align with the edge of the stamping platform (around 8.5") and the bottom of the stamp should be flush with the edge of the platform.
  2. Press the lid of the platform onto the back of the stamp, lift the lid, ink the stamp with Vintage Photo Distress ink, and stamp.
  3. Wipe the excess ink off the stamp and re-ink using Tea Dye Distress ink. Stamp again.
  4. Remove the stamp from the platform, clean it, and dry it too.
  5. Reposition the stamp facedown, so that the right edge of the stamp is ~3.25" from left edge of the stamp platform (at the 5.125"ish mark), 
  6. Repeat Steps #2, #3, and #4.
  7. To get the last frame, keep the stamp where it is on the platform's lid and move the paper 3.25" to the right.
  8. Repeat Steps #2, #3, and #4 (and #6).
  9. Cut the image panel with the second largest die from the Essential Rectangle Frames from the Sue Wilson by Slimline Collection.
  10. Use Memento ink to stamp Charlie into the center frame and onto label paper. Fussy-cut the label paper version and place over his counterpart on the image panel. 
  11. Secure the image panel die-cut onto the STAY-tion with magnets.
  12. Brush Antique Linen Distress ink over the entire panel of three Filmstrip Frames to create a non-white background. 
  13. Secure the Rainbow Stencil over the top Filmstrip Frame and secure with magnets. Use Post-It Notes to block the sides, top and bottom of the panel. 
  14. Use a q-tip or something small to sponge Barn Door, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet over the Rainbow Stencil. Remove the stencil and heat set the ink.
  15. Using the stamp platform, position the sentiment stamp facedown as desired over the rainbow on the image panel. 
  16. Press the platform's lid onto the stamp, lift, ink with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink,  and stamp the sentiment onto the rainbow. Repeat inking and stamping if necessary. I should have left well enough alone as my second impression isn't perfectly pristine. Woe is my Virgo self.
  17. I decided that I needed an element in the bottom frame and opted to use the movie clapper thingy stamp. 
  18. Use the platform and Memento ink to stamp the movie clapper thingy onto the bottom film frame.
  19. Lift the mask off Charlie and use Copic markers to color him and the movie clapper thingy.
  20. Stamp the ticket from the Charlie Clear Stamp Set #428 three times, brush the tickets with Distress inks, fussy-cut them, then edge 'em with a dark marker.
  21. Mat the image panel die-cut with black cardstock cut .25" larger.
  22. Cut patterned paper to to 3.875" x 8.75" and edged with a black marker.
  23. Adhere the patterned paper to a 4" x 9" black card.
  24. Adhere the image panel die-cut and the three tickets as shown.
