Butterfly Thinlits - Inked and Embossed

Last week, I posted a video showing you the Inked/Embossed Framelits and Thinits. This technique is so fun and easy and I love the inked impression I get on my projects.  I used the Butterfly Thinlits along with the One Tag Fits All stamp set.

One_tag_fits_all_emboss_framelitI inked the Thinlit with Hello Honey and ran it through the Big Shot to get the inked impression. 

2015_spring_13The sheet of DSP came from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack which gave me my color combination.

TIP:This stack of 48 - 4-1/2 x 6-1/2 sheets is on the Retiring List for 50% off!!  That is only $.07 cents a sheet, great deal!!

I stamped the tag image in Basic Gray ink and the eat cake image in Lost Lagoon.  I added some color to the cake with my Hello Honey Stampin' Write Marker.  It was cropped with the Note Tag Punch.  The super soft Hello Honey Quilted Cotton Ribbon adds a bit of texture without a lot of bulk.

Here is a closeup of the inked embossing.  I added a die cut butterfly for a bit more color.

Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation Blog Hop

Hawaii_banner
Welcome to the Grand Vacation Hawaii Achievers International Blog Hop
you may have just hopped here from Sharon Armstrong's Blog

Our International Blog Hop was created to celebrate our achievement for earning the Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation to Hawaii.  The theme for our hop is anything Hawaiian. We will be in Hawaii May12th -17th staying at the Sheraton Waikiki Resort on Waikiki Beach.  If you want to see pics from my trip, be sure to check out my Facebook Page. 

My project is bright and fun and uses some of my favorite colors with the Flower Patch Bundle.  I think these two flower images create the perfect Hawaiian themed flower.  A few Brights Candy Dots in the middle add a bit of dimension.

Flower_patch_hawaii

I die cut the flowers using the Flower Fair Framelits but fussy cut the leaf images with my Paper Snips as I really wanted the detail of the leaves to stand out.

Flower_patch_hawaii_close

My greeting is from the retiring Yippee Skippee stamp set and a strip of Melon Mambo 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon adds some interest along the left side.

Flower_patch_hawaii1

Your next stop is the very talented Connie Babbert, thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the fun projects we have for you!

Retiring - Apothecary Accents - Quick and Easy

Found this card as I was organizing my retiring items yesterday.  So simple, you could make lots of them in a very short period of time.

Stamp the image in Jet Black StazOn and color the flowers with a Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker.

Apothecaryartcalypso
Die cut it with the coordinating Framelit from the Labels Collection Framleits.  Layer it onto a larger die cut piece in Basic Black.  Tie a ribbon around the Calypso Coral card base and add the layered images with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The ribbon I used on this card retired a couple of years ago but I think the current Calypso Coral Seam Binding would look much better.

Stamp the greeting in Black on a 1/2" strip of Whisper White and flag the ends.  Add to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

VIDEO - Inked/Embossed Framelits & Thinlits Technique

In today's video, I will show you the inked/embossed framelits and thinlits technique.  We will use the technique to create this insert for a Mini Treat Bag Pocket.

Butterfly_basics_embossed_inked_cabana_out

Movie_film_camera1a VIDEO - Inked/Embossed Framelits & Thinlits (Can't view it in your reader, Click HERE to view it on my blog)

 

This is the pocket I created using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and other items from the shopping list below.  The featured stamp set is the Butterfly Basics which coordinates with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.

Butterfly_basics_embossed_inked_cabana_inI created the pocket from the Coastal Cabana Polka Dot Pattern included with the 2013-2015 In color Designer Series Paper Stack (this paper will be on the retiring list tomorrow)  The flower image was inked in Bermuda Bay and stamped off once before stamping it on Whisper White.  The greeting was added in Strawberry Slush ink. I die cut this piece with the 2-3/8" Circle Framelit and adhered it to a 2-1/2 circle punch out of Bermuda Bay.  this was then attached to a Strawberry Slush 3" Floral Frames die cut with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Update - Butterfly Thinlits and other products

Butterfly_basics_thinlit_stamping 

Butterfly_thinlitsAs many of you know, the Butterflies Thinlits have been so popular that Stampin' Up! ran out! Shipping delays have caused them to be unavailable for over a month. The ship arrived in port on April 3, but Stampin' Up! had to wait for the shipping container with the thinlits to be discharged.   The container with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies has finally been unloaded from the ship; however, there is a shortage of trucks, which has delayed the container being picked up. They have secured a truck to pick up the container, and, as of now, it is scheduled to be delivered to Stampin' Up! on Friday. I will post an update as soon as they are available.

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like me to put your name on a list, I can let you know immediately when these Thinits are available so you can be sure to get yours wile they are still available.  EMAIL ME with your request.

Stampin' Up! realizes that many of you were disappointed you were not able to purchase the Thinlits in time to receive Sale-A-Bration rewards--especially in the discounted bundles. Therefore, when the dies are available through April 30, you can choose one of two offers:

1) Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15% discount--just $21.20!

2) Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!
