This week is all about Stampin’ Up!’s Framelits Dies! These dies can be used to cut our stamped images and coordinate with many of our stamp sets. They can also be used to be create layers of cardstock and Designer Series Paper.
Today I used the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies.
These Framelits coordinate with the Festive Flurry Stamp Set.
When using the Framelits you will want…No, you will NEED the Magnetic Platform!
I did a few experiments for you to see how great this platform actually is…
First I tried a few embellishments. (In all of these samples I am holding the platform up in the air.)
Then I tried the craft scissors.
My favorite was a stapler! WOW!!
This Magnetic Platform is strong…..but that’s great because I know it will hold my framelit in the exact place I put it!!!
Ok…Now on to how I made this card.
The best thing about the Framelits Dies is that they coordinate with Stamp Sets that Stampin’ Up! sells. So if I want to stamp a snowflake from the Festive Flurry Stamp Set, I can just pull out the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies and cut it out in seconds and perfectly!
NO MORE SCISSORS!!!
I sure wish we had Framelits for EVERY Stamp Set–hint, hint Stampin’ Up!!!
This is where the magnetic platform comes into play. The Framelits are metal and will stick where you put them, even through the plastic cutting pad and cardstock!
