I know that I’ve been going on and on about how many amazing new stamp sets, bundles and products there are in the new Occasions catalogue, but – it’s true!  🙂

I love so many of the stamp sets, but I do tend to gravitate towards purchasing the special Bundles that are offered.  Why?

Well, for starters if it’s a stamp set that I really like, I’m going to want to use it in as many ways as possible.  Having coordinating thinlits/framelits make is much easy take a card from ‘clean & simple’  to ‘WOW!’ just by adding a three dimensional aspect to it.

How do you use thinlits/framelits to add a three dimensional aspect?  Well, you can start as simply as die cutting the shape, and attaching it to your card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, like this card:

On the above card, I die cut all of the pieces, and attached them with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Another way you can use them – even combine with the ‘popped up’ pieces, as above, is to use the negative, or cut out, piece of cardstock on you card, like I did with this card:

I added more interest, and dimension to this card by not only ‘popping up’ the die cuts with Dimensionals, but I also used the piece of cardstock after removing the die cut piece for the clouds.

Stampin’ Up! also has fabulous thinlits/framelits that create their own 3D effect – on purpose!  The newest one of these in the Occasions catalogue is the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies; here’s a card made using this set:

Talk about a WOW!  I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want to open this card on their special day; and it doesn’t have to be a birthday, but any celebration.  Another pop up set, in the Annual Catalogue is the Party Pop-Up Thinlits, that coordinate with the Party with Cake stamp set.

And these pop-up sets can be used not just for the inside of the card, but you can use the die cuts for the card front, as well – have a look:

And let’s not forget creating Shaker Cards!!  They are so much fun:

If you’re feeling adventurous (okay, you don’t have to be that adventurous – not like climbing Mt. Everest adventurous!) you can create 3D items, like luminaries, favours, etc. with the framelits/thinlits.

Luminaries created using the Hearth & Home Thinlits

These are some of the projects I’ve made – there are so many more incredible projects made by other people – not just Stampin’ Up! demonstrators – out there, the possibilities are endless!  (if you doubt me, just have a look at Pinterest! 🙂 )

Here are the Bundles that are new, in the Occasions catalogue.  Have a look, fall in love – then just click on the images to place your online order!  I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

And if you love the Dragonfly Bundle as much as I do – be sure to check my next post, where I’ll be offering my 1st Stamp Set/Bundle of the Month Club for January!  You’re going to love it! 🙂

Until next time – happy stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to stamp and create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project; whether a 3D item, or a card, or scrapbook page - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you stamp and create with me! :) If you're in Canada, you can Join My Team as a SU! demonstrator. If you're in the Great Vancouver area, you're welcome to join my classes - we always have fun!
