Labels Collection Framelits – Thoughts and Prayers

I could not do without the Stampin’ Up! Labels Collection Framelits, as well as all of the Stampin’ Up!’s framelits, as well as the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.  To me, the Labels Collection Framelits and all of the other framelits are must-have tools for creating paper crafts. The Labels Collection Framelits may be designed to cut certain stamp cut images, but they certainly may be used for other purposes.

The card share for you today features the Labels Collection Framelits and Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set.  To use the  Labels Collection Framelits, you will need the Big Shot, its multipurpose platform (Tab 1), and standard cutting pads.  Below are instructions for making this card.



STAMPS:  Thoughts and Prayers (127805) ; PAPER:  Midnight Muse Card Stock (126843), Gumball Green Card Stock (126840), Whisper White Card Stock (100730), and Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (125406); INK: Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker (119703), Gumball Green Stampin’ Write Marker (126856), Midnight Muse Classic Stampin’ Pad (126860), and White Gel Pen (105021); ACCESSORIES: Labels Collection Framelits (125598), Strips Embossing Folder (123128), Adorning Accents Embossing Folders (125601), Adorning Accents Edgelits (125595), Essentials Paper Piercing Pack (126187), VersaMark Pad (102283), Dazzling Diamond Stampin’ Glitter(102023), Heat and Stick Powder (100625), Heat Tool (129053), Stampin’ Pierce Mat (126199), Paper-Piercing Tool (126189), and Midnight Muse 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (126847)


Card Base:

1.  Cut a 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Midnight Muse Card Stock and fold it in half.

2.  Stamp the VersaMark Pad onto the bottom 1″ of the front of the card base.

3.  Apply Heat and Stick Powder over the VersaMark Ink and heat set with the Heat Tool.

4.  Apply the Dazzling Diamond Stampin’ Glitter over the Heat and Stick Powder and heat set again.

First Layer:

5.  Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the green design (see picture) from the Twitterpated DSP.

6.  Assemble a sandwich to run through the Big Shot in this order:  a) multipurpose platform on Tab 1, b) Cutting Pad, c) DSP piece, d) Adorning Accents Edgelit, and e) Cutting Pad.  Run through  the Big Shot.

7. Place the piece of DSP inside the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder aligning it just above the cut created with the Adorning Accents Edgelit.  Create a Big Shot sandwich with the multipurpose platform on Tab 2 and run through the Big Shot.

8.  Place the DSP onto the Paper-Piercing Mat, lay the same design (i.e., that used with the embossing folder) from the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack onto the DSP, and pierce the DSP with the Paper-Piercing Tool following the design grid.

Center Piece:

9.  Cover the tree stamp image from the Thoughts and Prayers with ink:  trunk and branches – Soft Suede; leaves – Gumball Green.  Stamp the tree image onto Whisper White Card Stock.

10.  Place the 3rd largest frame from the Frames Collection Framelits onto the Whisper White Card Stock ensuring it is centered over the tree image.  Create a Big Shot sandwich with these items and cut out the image.

11.  Using the Midnight Muse Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp the sentiment, Praying for You, onto the bottom-right corner.

Center Piece Mat:

12.  Place a piece of Gumball Green Card Stock into the Strips Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot (on Tab 2).

13.  Place the same frame from the Frames Collection Framelits onto the Gumball Green Card Stock.  Trace around the frame with a pencil.  Cut out the frame and use the White Gel Pen around the edge.  Adhere the Whisper White Card Stock with image onto the mat.

Flower Fest Stamp Set and Twitterpaded DSP

The beautiful Flower Fest Stamp Set, will no longer be available after May 31, which is next Thursday.  One of the images, the flower, from the stamp set is featured on this card.

Also featured on this card is the beautiful Twitterpaded Designer Series Paper (DSP), which is being carried over into the new catalog that debuts next Friday!  (Aren’t you so excited about the new catalog?)
The card base is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ that opens from the bottom.  It is made with Lucky Limeade Card StockHopefully you can see the diagonal lines I created on it with the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.
The triangle mat for the top piece that holds a triangle piece of the Twitterpaded DSP is made from Riding Hood Red Card Stock, as is the scallop trim made with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  The piece of Twitterpaded DSPthat runs down the front of the card is approximately 4-1/4″ long and 1-3/8″ wide.
The sentiment “Friend” is from the You’re A Gem stamp set that retires next Thursday.  The upcoming Bitty Banners Framelits (129267) was used for the Whisper White Card Stock that the sentiment is on.  The mat for the sentiment is Baja Breeze Card Stock.
TIP:  If you do not have a matching banner that is slightly larger that one you used, trace around that banner with a pencil onto card stock and cut out the tracing.  That is how I made the Baja Breeze mat.  It may be slightly different, but it sure meets the need.
The flower featured on the card (from Flower Fest stamp set) is embossed with White Embossing Powder and water colored with the Stampin’ Up! Aqua Painter, using Daffodil Delight and Riding Hood Red Inks.
