THANKFUL POPPIES




I must tell you about a really fun product... the Thinlit Dies!  But first I have to apologize for my first impressions of them.  I even regretted purchasing them.  I struggled with cutting them out, removing them from the metal die and then adhering them to the card. THEN.... the light bulb moment came through several other demonstrators who were LOVING them.  I was skeptical, but thought... get those babies back out and give them a try!  So today's card is in celebration of using them and being "thankful" to the other demos who shared their tips & tricks!

This card is inspired by the Paper Players Color Challenge #158.



Stamp Set:  Pleasant Poppies
Ink: Black Stazon, Markers- Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizzazz, Basick Black
Card Stock:  Whisper White, Basic Black
And More: Pearls, Black Sharpie Marker (color pearls), Expresions Thinlits Dies (132171)

Tip 1:  When cutting out the Thinlits- place a piece of wax paper between the card stock and Thinlit. Use a Paper Piercing tool to remove paper.

Tip 2: Stamp the Poppies on a scrap piece of paper and color them in just like on the card base. Cut out flowers and off set them a bit when placing them on the card for added dimension.
