Today’s sneak peak is a little bit cheeky. It’s technically not a new product – but it’s yet to appear in a catalogue! During 2013, Stampin’ Up! released two Thinlits designs but they never got any catalogue time – until now! They are labelled with ‘NEW’, which makes this a legit sneak peak blog post. So, introducing – Circle Card & Label Card!
Each of the thinlits die sets has a main die that cuts out the template for a “flip card” (either a circle or label centre piece) – which is pretty cool. But I actually think the best part about these thinlits dies is the extras they come with. The Circle Card has three words (xoxo, thnx, yay), two sentiment pieces and three elements (star, heart, chevron). The Label Card has two words (iheartyou, hi), one symbol (&), two banners, one sentiment piece and two elements (arrows).
This card was yet another specific request. A birthday card for a teenage girl who loves soccer. The Circle Card has a perfect place for a soccer ball in the middle. So, using the Hexagon Hive Thinlit (carrying over from the Occasions catalogue), I added some Gorgeous Grunge splatter in Island Indigo (I think I chose this colour because I like it mostly and maybe a little as a cross between mud & grass?). Add in one of those awesome ‘extras’ (Island Indigo star) and my ever faithful Label Love sentiment and this one was on its way to a happy customer. The use of the thinlit die gives this style of card lots of WOW for very little effort. And the good news – if you can’t wait until the new catalogue starts, a;; pf the products used in this post are available now in my online store! Kelly x
