Delicate Ornaments …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

With the release of the new 2015 Holiday Catalog, I wanted to share with you some of the amazing new products! I’ve already shared sneak peeks of Fall and Halloween cards, so today I’m going to bring you Christmas …

I want to focus on the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Die and the new Precision Base Plate. This steel plate delivers improved performance with more detailed dies, giving you extra fine cuts.

Grab a cup of coffee and sit back to watch this video explaining how it works …

The beautiful card shown in the video is the same card as shown in the Holiday catalog on page 14 – there is where you’ll find the Precision Base plate.

The Delicate Ornament Thinlit Dies are on page 15, and can be bundled with the Embellished Ornaments stamp set to save 15%. You’ll be seeing more of these in upcoming blog posts.


Today I’m using the Delicate Ornament Thinlit Dies with the beautiful Winter Wonderland Designer Paper stack and Embellished Ornaments stamp set.

I wanted to use Early Espresso cardstock with my gold paper, but please note that you may need a shim to cut out the delicate ornament even with the Precision Base plate … it is a lot thicker and each BigShot is different. So this is just a “heads-up”.


I cut the gold paper with the solid image to back my Espresso … the color really gets pulled out when combined with the Winter Wonderland Designer Paper stack. I really loved building this ornament, can’t wait to sit down and “really” play with these.

The fine tip glue pen works wonders when layering these images! I even used it to adhere my designer paper… just put a dot of glue behind the dots on the designer paper. Once dried you can bearly see it.

The greeting comes from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and stamped in Early Espresso. I then popped up my ornament to give the card some dimension, the ornament itself give you beautiful texture.

I finished it off with a couple of little pearls and the gold thread. I love the way this card turned out!


I hope you enjoyed today’s card share and video.  If you like my blog … share it with a friend!

Have a wonderful day ~
