What’s the Difference? Framelits vs. Thinlits

Hello, Crafty Friends! I recently watched this video by Stampin’ Up! featuring some beautiful butterfly framelits and thinlits. I’m posting it here for you because Holly gives an explanation of the difference between framelits and thinlits. Plus, these butterflies are beautiful!

Products mentioned:

As she mentions, it’s important to know whether you are cutting with a Framelit or Thinlit, so that you can use the correct cutting tools!

This fun card features the “must have” Stamp-A-Ma-Jig stamp positioning tool! Change the colors and sentiment to suit your needs. My card uses the Work of Art stamp set in wood mount (chevron image) and the clear mount version of the For All Things stamp set. Also, I use Burlap Ribbon every chance I get, so of course I included it on this card! Depending on the colors and embellishments you add to YOUR card, this could be masculine or feminine. So versatile! I hope you enjoy this video – make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already.

Tips for the Tin of Cards project kit

138378GDon’t purchase the Tin of Cards kit without reading this!

I recently put my cards together and noticed a few challenges. I found that if you follow the instructions included with the kit, you might become frustrated like I did.

First, there are a couple places where Stampin’ Up! recommends that you use StazOn ink. I suggest that you instead use Memento ink! StazOn will not only stain your photopolymer stamps black, over time it will ruin the photopolymer. That said, I understand why they suggest StazOn for stamping on the wooden embellishments – the image will be cleaner, with no bleeding. The minimal bleeding doesn’t bother me as much as the stained stamp does, so the choice is yours!

Second, there are times where Stampin’ Up! recommends that you use SNAIL adhesive, where I had better luck with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Tin of Cards kit is really cute, and I love the tin to organize cards. Just make sure to carefully read through all of the instructions before completing each card – and contact me with ANY questions you have!

Here is the video from Stampin’ Up! about the Tin of Cards kit and stamp set, with a few more pointers:
