Happy Tuesday!!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! I’m sharing the Crazy About You Stamp and coordinating Hello You Thinlit Die! I love this stamp set because it has some fabulous greetings and flowers!!!! Double Win!!!
How fabulous is that? I am loving that color combo too – Strawberry Slush, Calypso Coral, and Crisp Cantaloupe!!! Let’s get started!
SUPPLIED NEEDED: Cardstock, Crazy About You Stamp Set, Hello You Thinlit, Big Shot, 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch, Wax Paper, and Embellishments
I started off with a card base of Pistachio Pudding (4-1/4″ x 11) and I stamped the leaf image from the Crazy About You Stamp Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog with Pistachio Pudding ink on the bottom! Then I stamped the flower in Strawberry Slush, Calypso Coral, and Crisp Cantaloupe Ink onto scrap paper and punched them out with my 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch! I adhered one of the flowers right to the paper and popped the other two up with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Now comes the fun part – picking out a fabulous greeting! The Crazy About You Stamp Set has greetings that coordinate with the Hello You Thinlits as you can see above! There are so many mix and match options!
When you are using your Thinlits to cut out the greetings I have the following tips it goes smooth! 🙂
~Use Wax Paper on top of the cardstock when cutting out the words! This will help it pop right out of the die much easier. Your layers will go…Magnetic Plate or Multi-Purpose Platform / Clear Cutting Pad / Cardstock / Wax Paper / Thinlit / Clear Cutting Pad
~If your words don’t pop out right away, you can use the back of a straight pin or even Paper Snip tips to push it from the backside through those little holes in the Thinlit!
~If it seems that your Thinlit is not cutting through the cardstock, you may need to add a shim (I use a little piece of the cardstock that comes in the back of Designer Series Paper packs)! This adds a little bit of thickness so the die is pressed nice and tight!
Once you have your words cut out you can attach them to your card and stamp the coordinating greeting of your choice! I stamped “So Much” in Pistachio Pudding! Super fabulous!
