Thinlits – it’s SO not what you think!

Posted on

Nope, when I say Thinlits I’m NOT talking about those skinny little things you see at restaurants “pretending” they eat ALL the time and NEVER exercise, their tiny frame simply nature’s way of saying “lucky you!”. Don’t you hate them, especially when you know they DO watch every bite that goes into their mouths and are exercising behind closed doors EVERY chance they get, lol!

Anyways, what I’m talking about are the Thinlits Card Dies currently available only on-line from Stampin’ Up! These have been on display in my side-bar for a few months now and I’ve shown them here before but after an evening with some very creative Stamping Divas who were making some INCREDIBLE cards last night, I thought it best to show you this again.

Thinlits Card Dies - you have to get at least ONE!!!

As you can see above, it says these Thinlits Card Dies match up with four of the current stamp-sets – Oh, HelloYippee-Skippee!Really Good GreetingsRegarding Dahlias.

I had made some cards from these dies when I first received them in the new year but after last night,  I’m TOTALLY inspired to try again. Especially as another of my Stampin’ Divas showed us yet another technique for these cards to make them VERY user-friendly I’m so fired up to try again!

Oh. My. Gosh. So many stamps, so little time – excuse me, I feel an Inkee Fiddling coming on!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

The Open Sea on Sweet Sorbet!

Posted on

As I’ve mentioned MANY times before, having being born beautiful instead of rich (yes, I can laugh at myself – although these days it’s more jiggling than giggling) I tend to save EVERYTHING. Eventually it all becomes useful.

My size determiner is the usability of the products. Ribbon for example have to be long enough to either fit across a two-inch wide tag which thus in-turn makes it’s large enough to be used on the end of sentiment, tag or such.

Open Sea - Ribbon Scraps - JIF

For cardstock and DSP, my smallest punch is the determiner. Thus if I can put a scrap into a punch – I save it. Note the small punched circle on the tag above, seriously who wants to lose a sheet of fresh cardstock to that small-fry?!

As exemplified on the card below, the scrap doesn’t even have to fit the punch completely. Don’t you just love the Sahara Sand Cardstock which compliments this sheet of DSP from Sweet Sorbet perfectly?
