Wait til you see the new Framelits and coordinating stamp set, Apothecary Art, in the Occasions Mini Catalog that goes live on Wednesday, January 4th! I am so excited that Stampin' Up! has teamed up with Sizzix to bring us Framelits and stamp sets to go with them!
The great thing about Framelits is that you can position them over your stamped image and cut it out with the Big Shot. Because they aren't solid, you can see exactly where to place them in order to get the image cut precisely. It's like stamping an image and then punching it out, only you get a whole collection of sizes of the same shape!
I can't show you pictures of the products until tomorrow, but I can show you a sample I made. And you'll see why I love these new products so much!
Here's a close-up of one of the beautiful Apothecary Art images, cut with one of the Label Collection Framelits, and colored with Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Markers. I used Black StazOn Ink to get a crisp, bright image that didn't run when I applied the colors.
The sentiment is from another new set in the Occasions Mini, Loving Thoughts. Such an elegant font, don't you think?
I had fun with stripes on this card. The Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla backgrounds were both embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder, but at right angles to each other. I didn't plan it that way, but like the way it turned out. Then the layered ribbons, Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding and Pink Pirouette Taffeta, continue the stripes motif.
I'll have more to share on Wednesday, when I CAN show the products. I have another sample using a different stamp set and Framelits collection. Meanwhile I hope you're intrigued with this card using Framelits and the Apothecary Art stamp set.
