Spotlight on Framelits

I was hesitant about the *NEW* Framelits dies but they are my new favorite accessory, I can do so much with them and they make all of my cards look so "wow", with little effort I might add. The following two cards were done at my last Stamp Club meeting, if you don't belong to a Stamp club you are missing out ;).

This card features products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. We simply attached our dsp to the front and the cut out a "window" using the Labels framelits die, I love that you can place these anywhere on your card. We then cut another frame out of poppy parade to place inside. The lovely butterfly on the front is made using the blossom punch. To get a butterfly fold your blossom in half and trim it to leave only the wings of a butterfly.

Supplies
Stamps: Fresh Vintage (SAB) and Friendly Phrases (IB&C)
Ink: Poppy Parade and Whisper White
Paper: Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade and Whisper white card stock; Everyday Enchantment dsp
Accessories: Labels framelits dies, blossom punch, Everyday enchantment ribbon, and in color brads.


For this card we cut another "window" this time on cutting it halfway. It is a new technique we learned at our meeting. It love the effect. The window swings when you open the card. So much fun! We also placed the ribbon inside, it's different but such a pretty touch.










Supplies:
Stamps: Creative Elements (IB&C) and Sincere Salutatioons
Ink: baja breeze, crumb cake and early espresso
Paper: rich razzleberry, baja breeze, sahara sand and whisper white cardstock
Accessories: labels framelits dies, modern label punch, whisper white taffeta ribbon, and basic rhinestones

This card featured the *NEW* Adorning Accents edgelits die and matching textured embossing folders. It is hard to get these to cut straight so we have resorted to using removable dotto on our card where we would like our edgelit to go. The embossing folders don't need this though. We did cut and then emboss. The pink flower was stamped and punched and then attaced to a second punched flower in the same color with dimentionals. I like the fluffy look it gives the flower.
Supplies:
stamps: mixed bunch and friendly phrases
ink: early espresso ond pink pirouette
paper: riding hood red, pear pizzazz, whisper white, baja breeze, and pink pirouette card stock; twitterpated (occasions mini) dsp
Accessories: pear pizzazz seam binding, basic rhinestones, blossom punch, tripple layer blossom punch, labels framelits die, adorning accents edgelits die and embossing folder, and perfect polka dots embossing folder

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stampin'
