Sparkling Dragonfly

Dragonfly Dreams & Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits -

I love the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and Detailed Dragonfly thinlits – one of the products in the new 2017 Occasions Catalog!  I plan on doing more cards with this set.

Dragonfly Dreams & Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits -

You can use your bone folder to gently roll the dragonfly wings before you glue it in place.

1. Fold the Mint Macaron card base.
Tape/glue the Whisper White layer to the card base.
2. Randomly stamp the dots across the top and across the
bottom of the Dapper Denim layer.
3. Using the smaller dragonfly thinlit, cut one from the
Dapper Denim layer – a little above center. You can keep or
discard the dragonfly that is cut out.
4. Use the dragonfly thinlit with the detailed wings, cut one from
Vellum Cardstock. Lightly brush this dragonfly with a sponge
and Dapper Denim ink.
5. Glue the square of Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper to the
back of the Dapper Denim layer behind the cut out of the
dragonfly. Tape/glue this layer to the White layer.
6. Put a line of Tombow down the center of the Vellum
dragonfly and insert it into the cut out in the Dapper Denim
layer. You will have to hold it a few seconds to get the glue
to stick to the Dazzling Diamond layer.
7. Using a strip of Mint Macaron, create your greeting piece and
use dimensionals to attach to the card front.

Getting those framelits/thinlits off that sticky paper!

Have you tried to get your new Stampin’ Up! framelits or thinlits off that very sticky paper without bending them?  My friend Susie Guenther gave me the following tip and it works slicker than you know what!

Lay the white card with the framelits attached face down on your work surface.  Lift up the corner of the white card back to the first framelit.  Place your bonefolder on the framelit and hold the framelit tightly against the work surface while you pull the white sticky card away from the framelit.

Framelit Release -1

Step 1

As you pull the white card away from the framelit, keep moving your bonefolder on the framelit.  Once a framelit is released, move on to the next framelit until they are all set free.

Step 2

Once they are all set free, I throw that card with the sticky tape on it in the trash.  I found that if I stuck the framelits back on the card, you run into the same problem trying to get them free again.

I purchased magnetic sheets (25 sheets 5″ x 7″ Magnetic (20 mil) Adhesive Magnet) from Amazon and that’s what I transfer my framelits to after they have been set free.

Side Note:  If you have a scanner, scan the sheet of framelits before you release them.  Then, whether you just simply place them back in the envelope they came in or transfer them to a magnetic sheet, you have an image of the shapes that came with the set – always a great idea in case you lose one – then you know what is missing.
