Window Box Thinlits Dies

The Window Box Thinlits Dies can do so much more than just make a box.
This set also has a coordinating stamp set that can be purchased in a bundle but I only got the dies.
First things first...make the box.

I placed a little battery operated votive in this box made of Soft Sky cardstock.

 For this card I used one of the dies on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and backed it with Mint Macaron glimmer paper which is a new Sale-a-bration item, 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack.

I love this card.
Using the large floral die on a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White cardstock, I cut the image out and then stamped a greeting from Flourishing Phrases with Watermelon Wonder ink.
The card base is made of Whisper White Thick Cardstock and I sponged ink (Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry and Wild Wasabi) where it would show through when the floral die cut piece was on over it.

 The birthday candle die is so cute!
After cutting out the image I placed pieces of cardstock behind the cut outs.
(Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Cherry Cobbler)
The greeting is from Flourishing Phrases and the card base is embossed with the Festive embossing folder.
 For the inside I stamped a balloon from the Balloon Celebration stamp set in Daffodil Delight and drew a string with the Island Indigo Stampin' Write marker.

Birthday on Cloud Nine

I am really having fun with the Lift Me Up Bundle!
For this card I used a Crumb Cake cardstock for the base and stamped with Crumb Cake ink balloons and clouds. On Whisper White cardstock I stamped the greeting and one balloon in Island Indigo and the other balloon in Cherry Cobbler. I then used the coordinating dies and cut out the images and clouds (which I then sponged the edges with Island Indigo ink). For the greeting banner I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 7/8" x 5-1/5" long and used the banner die piece in the Window Box Thinlits Dies set. It is a small piece that cuts the dove tails and scores the paper so you can fold it for a dimensional banner.
The large balloon is Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Island Indigo.

Just a Note

This card features the Lift Me Up stamp set and coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies.
I am having so much fun with this bundle!

For this card I first stamped the balloons and clouds with Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.
I used a thin strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock near the bottom and stamped the greeting in Soft Suede ink. I sponged Crumb Cake ink on the edges of the greeting and the background piece.
The large balloon is cut out with a die on Soft Suede cardstock and has Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy pieces behind it which are also cut out with dies.

The "note" is stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper white and I cut off some of the bottom and rolled it a bit to fit in the basket.

That's the Tag

This card features the That's the Tag bundle which inludes the That's the Tag stamp set and Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies.
You can do so much more than just make tags with this set.

For this card I cut out the flower die 3 times on three different colors of card stock, Basic Black, Whisper White and Garden Green. I used the black for the frame and took the petal pieces of white and the leaf pieces from the green and set them in place. For the center of the flower I just used the white and colored it with a marker. The pieces stayed quite nicely in place and I just applied some regular tape to the back to hold them.
Also used on this card is the Urban Underground designer series paper, Elegant Dots embossing folder and Whisper White Baker's Twine.

So Very Much

The So Very Much stamp set available during Sale-a-bration makes for a quick and easy thank you card.
I stamped the large "thank you" greeting in Night of Navy on Whisper White cardstock and then layered that over a piece of the lovely Floral Boutique designer series paper.

Avant Garden

For this card I used the Sale-a-bration stamp set Avant Garden and paired it with Wisteria Wonder, Garden Green, and the Fluttering embossing folder.

I stamped the flower image with Wisteria Wonder ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut out with a Stitched Framelit die, stamping twice to get the two shades.
Stems and leaf are stamped in Garden Green.
The centers I stamped with Perfect Plum ink along with the greeting.

Hey, Chick

I have been having fun with the stamp set Hey, Chick that is available during Sale-a-bration.
I love this goofy chicken that I have featured on these 3 cards along with the Playful Palette designer series paper.
