FRIDAY FAVOURITES – BUTTERFLY AND HEART DIES!

Each Friday for the last few weeks I have been sharing my favourite retiring products.  We have looked at my favourite stamps, flowers, butterflies and dragonflies.  Today for Friday Favourites is my favourite Big Shot Dies particularly the Butterfly Thinlits and the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.

FIRSTLY THE BUTTERFLY THINLITS

I have used the Butterfly Thinlits and the Bold Butterfly Thinlits so much over the years.  Just some of the cards are below.

Create a funky watercoloured background and diecut the large Butterfly Thinlits.  See the details in this post -> HERE.

This one below was a special card I made for my daughter. You can see the full post -> HERE.

It was a simple card and I really loved  how it turned out. Sometimes you don’t need too much. 🙂

This card below was a CASE of a card in the catalogue.  I made it a couple of years ago now.  I can’t seem to find the original post. If I did post it at all??? 🙂

This card below I created for a Bloghop 3 years ago.  I coloured the Silver Foil with the Blendabilities at the time.  You could use the Stampin’ Blends now.  This card has been repinned from Pinterest and viewed so many times over the years since I shared it.  You can see the original post -> HERE.

BLOOMIN’ HEART THINLITS

The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits are so detailed and delicate.  You don’t need to add too much to a card when you use this Thinlit.

I cut this heart from Designer Series Paper. You can diecut flowers with this Thinlits set too. The background is stamped with the Timeless Textures.  See the card -> HERE. 

Another one cutting the Thinlits again with Designer Series Paper. I used the Timeless Textures set.  See this card -> HERE. 

Do you have these Thinlits yet?  They are delicate and detailed.  They are lovely to add to a card making any card extra “gorgeous”.  Really! You will want them in your stash.

They won’t be available in a couple of weeks though.

The Butterfly Thinlits and the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits are available in my store -> HERE now.

             

Thanks for visiting me again.  Why not share what you have made with these Thinlits.  I would love to see them.

See you again soon,

Jenny

BLOOMIN’ HEART BUTTERFLY!

I have another card for you today using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.  This card uses the Thinlits in a different way.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and other blogs and thought I just have to try this myself.

I first cut the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits from Calypso Coral card then placed the large Bold Butterfly Framelits over the heart and cut it out. I cut a second butterfly straight from Calypso Coral card.  I adhered the both together.

To assemble the card I embossed a piece of Whisper White card with the Fluttering Embossing Folder and layered this piece on to black card and adhered the both pieces to a Calypso Coral card base.

I cut some leaf stems from vellum using the Rose Garden Thinlits and placed them behind the butterfly.  I think it gives a little softness.  The greeting is from the Rose Wonder set and cut with the matching frame.  I added some silver metallic Thread behind the label.  In the centre of the butterfly I added a White Baker’s Twine bow and a Metal Rimmed Pearl.

I was really pleased how this turned out.  I hope you might like it too.

Have a great day/night wherever you may be.

KNOW WHAT I LOVE??

This was another of the cards I made a couple of weeks ago when I was playing with the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits.  I had cut the heart from the Sale-A-Bration paper ‘Wildflower Fields’ DSP.  This was one of the activities everyone got to do at my Launch at the Product Playground but I hadn’t got around to actually making a card from it at that time.

I wasn’t sure how to put it together but I teamed it with a few of my new Favourites the ‘Timeless Textures’ stamp set which I stamped in Sahara Sand and the greeting from one of the Sale-A-Bration sets ‘What I Love’.

The card base is Blackberry Bliss to match the DSP and the flowers were cut from Lost Lagoon.  Simple but hey that’s me!! 🙂

Hope you like it.

See you soon,

Jenny

A BLOOMIN’ HEART!

I have had the ‘Bloomin’ Heart’ Thinlits Die for a  little while now but only managed to make some cards with it last week.  I have to say I was a little intimidated by the delicateness of it. It was going to be fiddly pushing out those extra little bits that you don’t want. I braved it though and had a go.  Now I had my new Die Brush to use too.

I cut the heart from the ‘It’s My Party’ DSP stack and using the Die Brush and the foam pad that comes with it I gave it a few rolls over the back of the die and Voila! out popped the heart with very little effort.  I don’t think I minded this Heart die now.

I thought I would show you the card that I made with the pretty little heart.

I stamped the flourish from ‘Timeless Textures’ on Sahara Sand card.  Then matted that on to Whisper White and then adhered that to a Thick Whisper White Card base.  I cut some flowers from Pool Party using the little flowers in the ‘Bloomin’ Heart’ Thinlits and adhered those on.  Some Adhesive Pearls adds a little Elegance.

The greeting is from  the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Sky is the Limit’. Have you got this set yet from Sale-A-Bration?  There is less than a week left to grab it and then it is gone.  Some new sets are being added after the 15th.  I cut the greeting with the ‘Project Life’ Framelits and added Pearls to finish.

 I have now made a few cards with the ‘Bloomin’ Heart’ Thinlits so I will show you those over the next few days.

Have a Happy Day,

Jenny
