How To Make Perfect Die Cut Backgrounds

LovenStamps: Stamps in the Mail Club, July 2016 - Floral Phrases, featuring the Detailed Floral Thinlits, heart wedding card idea with all supplies from Stampin' Up

These Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies are absolutely gorgeous – probably one of the prettiest items that Stampin’ Up! has ever carried, and I love them!  Let me share a few tips and tricks for getting perfect cuts with the least amount of effort. And did you notice?  This particular die makes a really pretty card background – not just a layer for the top of your card! 

With so many ways to use this set of dies, you’re going to find these tips really helpful.  This card is a version of one shared when I was on the Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to the Mediterranean last month – still hard to believe that Stampin’ Up! sent my hubby and I on a week-long cruise for free!  I promise that I haven’t forgotten about posting my pics from the trip – I’ll be sure to share them before the summer it out!

The other reason you’ll want to watch this video is to understand why you might want to get the new Big Shot Platform that was released in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog last month (June 2016).  If you really don’t like fussing with your detailed dies, then you’ll definitely love this new platform and how evenly it makes Big Shot cutting with the newer high-performance thinlits and framelits.

Ready to make your own version of this card?  I know!  Me, too!  I can absolutely picture the sponging in other colors. Melon Mambo would contrast beautifully with the Night of Navy, too.

The good news is that you can create this card (plus 3 other project) with a ready-to-craft Stamps in the Mail Club kit!  Order your kit (and learn more about the Club) on my website.  These are kits that I dream up, create by hand and mail to your doorstep – for one or as many months as you like!  Each month features a new stamp set and all-new projects.

Give yourself a summer treat – order your Stamps in the Mail Club kit for July today.  I know this month’s kit will sell out quickly!
