Easily cut detailed thinlits with the new Big Shot Platform

A couple of posts ago I showed you the new Flourish Thinlits and the Flourishing Phrases set.  I've continued creating with this wonderful new catalog items and created this card set.

Flourish Thinlits and Flourishing Phrases

First, I really encourage you to get the new Big Shot Platform (142802), the Precision Base Plate (139684) for detailed dies, and the Die Bush (140603) (pictured below). This will make using the new Flourish Thinlit so much easier and fun to create with. The other "must have" when working with this thinlit is the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (138309).

Die Brush easily removes small cut pieces from dies (140603)

 Here are two more of the quick cards I made with this thinlet set.  

Flourish Thinlits and Flourishing Phrases

I used the Project Life Cards and Lables Framelit for the rounded corner inner layer and the project Life corner punch to round the corners on the white layers. Layering Ovals Framelits were used for the sentiment. The Sentiment is from the coordinating Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  The little Melon Mambo flower is also from the Flourishing Thinlits set and I also added some Melon Mambo Thick Baker's Twine to match the color pop from the Melon Mambo flower on the sentiment.

Flourishing Phases was used for the sentiment and Flourish Thinlits created the die cuts.

This card shows off the new Cucumber Crush 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon (141429), which also comes in Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. Most of these were left-over pieces from the remaining piece of Cucumber Crush cardstock after I finished cutting the other cards.

Two cards from the Flourish Thinlits card set 

The card on the left was done for an earlier post. The card on the right is another version of second card shown today. Same Cucumber Crush 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon and die cut.

However, I used the Layering Circle Framelits (141705) with a slightly different placement of the sentiment on this card. With all my tools already out for the rest of the card, this was a fast and easy to make. I added some rhinestones to embellish this card.  The white background uses the Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Stampin; Up Flourishing Phrases and Flourish Tinlits

This card was from an earlier post, and sparked the inspiration for the rest of this set.  I kept the cardstock color scheme (
Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush and a Basic Black sentiment)
 consistent across the cards for a more unified look.  I've said it before, but I'll say it again.... love, love, love the way all of my Stampin' Up! tools, images and colors coordinate.  Its a big differentiator between Stampin' Up! and others.
