2016.08.27 Floral Boutique 3The Floral Boutique thinlit dies are a new favorite of mine.  I chose not to purchase the bundle as I didn’t feel I would use the stamps that came with the bundle.  The thinlits, however, are awesome and truly easy to work with.  I use the Precision Base Plate and the Die Brush with these thinlits.  The intricate pieces fall out very easily and no shim is needed.  This is a 3-piece set and the card front you see here uses the 2 thinlit dies.  The 3rd die is an edgelit and you use it to cut a neat separation for either of the thinlits.  The next sample shows the use of the larger thinlit and the edgelit die.


2016.08.27 Floral Boutique DSP 1Using only 1 of the thinlits and layering it with a casual designer series paper, the card is much less formal than the view shown above.  Assorted sized pearls were used on both views but I’m sure rhinestones would also be a pleasing embellishment.  Being the hoarder that I am, I saved many of the little pieces that were die cut from the thinlits.  The 2 little flowers you see on the birthday sentiment came from the thinlit scrap and provide a perfect embellishment, especially with the 2 little pearls.  I also use the scrap pieces when I discover an “whoops” on my card stock – a spot of ink, a blemish, or perhaps a small tear.

I actually did 6 views of this card – 3 using the 2 thinlits as shown in the first view, and above  and3 using the larger thinlit with the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper.

Although I chose to use the casual striped DSP, there are other patterns in the Floral Boutique package you can choose from.  The view above shows a very elegant but casual card.  You can choose your own style at September Stamp Camp!  Hope to see you there this week – September 1, 2 and 3.
