Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
I am super excited to be hopping along with the Pal’s!! I can’t wait to see what everyone is making! I know it is going to be great!! I decided to feature a thinlit die from the Holiday Catalog. The Chandelier Thinlits is just beautiful!
It has everything you need to make different chandeliers for the Holidays and non-holiday cards. It coordinates with the Season to Sparkle stamp set.
This set gives you all the little extras for decorating your chandelier.
It also has a different chandelier that coordinates with the dies.
I love these samples from Stampin’ Up!
They show you all the different fun ways to accent the chandeliers.
- The Smoky Slate is embossed with the Polka Dots Basic embossing folder
- To make the Chandelier, Add an adhesive sheet to both sides of whisper white. Then cut it out with your thinlit and Big Shot. After it is cut and removed from the thinlit, only remove the protective sheet from one side of the die cut. This will revile the adhesive. Add mixed leafing flakes to the adhesive. Buff away any extra.
- The specialty designer series paper is Year of Cheer (available Sep.1) you are going to freak at how gorgeous this paper is. I also used a small strip of silver washi tape from the same suite of products! These two were paired with the Shimmer Powder Pink ribbon.
- The final bling was a little rhinestone at the top and the copper embossed sentiment
The dimensions for this card are as fallows. The card base is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. I cut a piece of Blushing Bride at 4 1/4 inches on the 8 1/2 inch side of a 8 1/2 by 11 piece of card stock. Then scored at 5 1/2 inches. This created a top folding card. You will need a Whisper White that is 4 1/16 by 5 3/8 inches. To this the Cheer to the Year Designer Series Paper and the Smoky Slate are attached. The Cheer to the Year DSP is cut to 3 /4 by 5 3/8 inches. The Smoky Slate is 3 1/2 by 5 3/8 inches . You will need a Champagne that is 4 1/8 by 5 7/16 . For the Sentiment The Blushing Bride is 13/16 by 2 inches. The Cheer to the Year DSP is 3/4 by 2 inches
