NEW STUFF!!

DSC00254Oh my word…NEW STUFF!!!  I don’t like showing NEW STUFF until you are able to buy it and TODAY you can buy this!

So…what is this NEW STUFF you ask?  Well it is an incredible set of framelits (this one is called Label Thinlits) that lets you make ‘movable’ cards.  And you know why I have this NEW STUFF already?

I WON A SET AT CONVENTION!!!  I could not have been more DELIGHTED with my win!

And since today is August 1st and today is the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge, I decided to use my NEW STUFF for it!

The base of the card is Smoky Slate and I ran it through the framelit and it CUTS AND SCORES the base for you!  I took a piece of the Smoky Slate Chevron, ran it through just the one side of framelit then attached to the back section.

One thing I discovered working with this set of framelits is that the 2nd to smallest Label Framelit is the SAME SIZE as the swinging panel on this so it ‘frames’ the Label Framelit that comes with this set perfectly!  I cut one of the original framelits in Bermuda Bay and added it to the swinging panel.  I added a Whisper White Wide Oval punch on that.

DSC00256I took a piece of Basic Black and used with the Label Framelit (that come WITH this set) and cut it the the ‘hi’ (also in the set).  NOTE:  I found to get the HI cut out, I had to use a shim of our colored cardstock…just a note in case you have a problem.  I added it using dimensionals.  Than I added a Bermuda Bay Candy Dot as the ‘dot’ on the i.  I cut the arrows from Bermuda Bay, Basic Black and Whisper White and added these to the card front.  Then I cut out a Bermuda Bay Label Framelit (the one in the set), stamped the greeting from Too Kind and added to the back of the swinging section to finish it off.

I know this is a very simple card but I really wanted to ‘show off’ this NEW STUFF!!! and this fun color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary was the perfect opportunity for it!
