I was watching a video about someone making diamond shaped decorations and decided to try and make a Pumpkin and a Turkey using a Pyramid shape. These were pretty quick and easy. SUPPLIES: Ink: Peekaboo Peach Marker – Pumpkin
Tangerine Tango ink pad – Turkey
Basic Black Marker – Turkey Pumpkin Card Stock: Pumpkin Pie
Garden Green Turkey Card Stock: Soft Suede
Daffodil Delight Big Shot:Pyramid Pals Framelits #140618 Flower Fair Framelits #133731 Pumpkin Layering Circles Framelits #141705 Adhesive: Tombow Glue
NOTE: If you want to open the Pyramids so you can put something inside: Put a piece of tape on the inside of the tips, then after decorating, punch a 1/16″ hole about 1/8″ from the tip of each Triangle. Decorate the Pyramids. Close the Pyramids by threading Baker’s Twine through the holes. Tabs: You can glue the Front to the Tabs, but not the Back Triangle.
1. Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Cut two of the Pyramid shape Framelits. Fold all score lines so both pieces are the same. 2. Draw oval like shapes on each triangle with the Peekaboo Peach Marker. 3. Put glue on the top side of one of the bottom squares. Attach the other square on top making sure that the sides with the tabs are opposite each other. 4. Cut a 1/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Garden Green card stock for the curly vines. Run a bone folder over it to start it curling. Find something round and narrow to wrap it around and curl it. I used one of my grandson’s metal cooking spoons with the round metal part about 1/8″ in diameter. Curl the strip around the round piece holding the end to keep it in place. Gently unwrap the strip so you keep the curl in. Cut it in half Glue both pieces to the tip so one part sticks up and the other angles across. 5. Cut a little stem from Garden Green card stock. You can cut a Garden Green leaf from the Flower Fair Framelits or just cut it with scissors. Glue the stem on top of the pyramid tip and over the curly vines. Glue the leaf to the stem.

card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Cut two of the Pyramid shape Framelits. Fold all score lines so both pieces are the same. 2. Choose one of the Triangle sides without tabs to be the Turkey front.

Hand cut the two Real Red piece to make the Wattle and the Comb. 4. Glue the Wattle onto the back of the lower Beak. Glue the bottom of the Beak to the top of the Scallop Circles. Draw the Eyes with Basic Black Marker. Gle the Comb above the eyes. 5. Put Glue on the two tabs that attach to the Front Triangle. Repeat with the tabs for the Back Triangle. 6. Decide what color order to put your feathers in. Start with the center two and glue them to the back so they stick up high enough to make you happy. Work your way outward on both sides glueing all the bottom tips on top of the first two pieces. 7. You are done. Admire your cute Turkey.

~You can stamp the Hardwood image in Chocolate Chip ink either before you cut out your Baker’s Box pieces or after you have cut it out. I did it after, but it would probably be easier if you stamped before you cut them out.
~Before. Ink up your Hardwood stamp and lay Rubber side up. Lay your card stock on top of the inked stamp. Use a Clear Stamp Block and rub it over all the card stock to transfer the ink. Remove card stock. Repeat with the second piece.

Be careful, mine smeared a little. Also stamp it on Delightful Dijon card stock. Stamp Autumn in Cajun Craze on the banner. Stamp your leaf in Crushed Curry ink and gently roll the edges in the Cajun Craze ink so you can still see some of the Crushed Curry ink. Stamp in the center of the Marquee. 3.

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Stamp your Sleigh with VersaMark ink on Real Red card stock. Lay your card stock on the printer paper and cover well with the Real Red Glitter embossing powder. Remove excess from your card stock and melt with your heat tool. Put excess embossing powder back into jar. Fold and throw away your printer paper to prevent glitter from going everywhere. Repeat this process for your Tree using Emerald Envy card stock, VersaMark ink, and Emerald Envy Glitter embossing powder.
NOTE: When using Glitter Embossing Powder with the Heat Tool: make sure it all gets melted by holding under a good light and angling your card stock so you can see when the embossing powder flattens out. It will also change color slightly. After it cools a bit rub your finger over it to make sure it is all smooth and melted. If there is any part that feels powdery still, melt that part with your Heat Tool. 2. Stamp your Reindeer on Crumb Cake card stock with Early Espresso ink. 3. Cut your Sleigh, Tree, and Reindeer out with the coordinating dies and your Big Shot. The Sleigh and Reindeer need to be lined up exactly. Use a Post-it Note to hold them in place if necessary. 4. Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Run through your Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder making sure to get the heavier snow in the position you want. Glue to your 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Thick Whisper White card base which you have SCORED and folded at 4-1/4″. 5. Lay out your sleigh, reindeer, and tree in the positions you want them.
~Glue the Tree on first.
~Tie a bow as shown on the Sleigh leaving the Twine on the left about 2-1/2″ long so you can attach it behind the Reindeer.
~Then glue the sleigh in place covering up the tree properly.
~Tie a bow around the Reindeer’s neck. I put a bit of SNAIL on the back of his neck to keep it in place. Put Glue on the back of your Reindeer and position on your card front making sure to attach the Baker’s Twine so he can pull the Sleigh.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Early Espresso card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Crumb Cake card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.

6. Lay about half the Crushed Curry Scribbles on your card front to help you position your Pumpkin. Glue your Pumpkin in place. 7. Tie Baker’s Twine around part of the scribble. It is kind of tricky to tie it without scrunching the scribbles together. Tie either a bow or a knot. Put glue on the back of the “half” Crushed Curry scribbles, centering the Baker’s Twine. Glue to card. 8. Attach your Welcome with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

When you have two leaves you like, Cut them out with the Leaf Framelit. 5. Attach the four leaves to the back of the Circles with Tombow Glue.

Thinlits have more details than Framelits which are a basic shape die cut.
This video is 3-1/2 minutes long.
Thinlits have several differences from Framelits. Both have cut lines. Some Thinlits also have score lines. Most Thinlits have release holes on the flat metal to help you get the card stock out. There are several types of Thinlits.
1. Regular Thinlits have shape and some details, but are larger and the card stock comes out fairly easily.
Use Sandwich 1
2. 3D Thinlits both cut and score your card stock so you can fold and make a 3 dimensional container, shape, envelope, or bag. You can use any of the basic Platform bases and 2 cutting pads/plates.
Use Sandwich 1.
3.Word Thinlits cut out a single word with a thin line of card stock forming the cursive letters. Use any of the basic Platforms bases and 2 FLAT cutting pads/plates. You can also use the Precision Base Plate with 1 cutting pad/plate. You might also need to use Parchment Paper or Wax Paper between your card stock and the Thinlit to help your card stock come out of the Thinlit die more easily.
Use either Sandwich 1 OR 2 with FLAT cutting pad(s)/plate(s).
4.Interactive Thinlits which make an outside cut and an inside cut. PL Paper Clip Thinlits.
Use Sandwich 1.
5. Detailed Thinlits cut fine lines with intricate designs and give the best results when used with the Precision Base Plate.
Use Sandwich 2.

~Slightly push your sandwich forward through your Big Shot to get it started, and then crank your handle until the whole sandwich comes out. If desired, crank through the other way for better cutting results. The more detailed Thinlits need this second time through to cut all the details.
~Use Big Shot Die Brush to remove the excess small card stock pieces from you die cut image. You can also use a toothpick, a bone folder, or a paper piercing tool to help you remove the small excess card stock pieces.

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Pool Party card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your A Little Foxy patterned Paper at 3-3/4″ x 5″. Attach to your card base centering so it is even around all four sides. 3. Take the leftover piece of your patterned paper, turn it over so the opposite side shows and stamp “Birthday” in Dapper Denim ink. Cut out with a Lots of Labels Framelit. Cut the next larger size Framelit from Calypso Coral card stock. Use your Marker to outline the edges of both die cuts. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of both die cuts. Attach the Birthday layer to the Calypso Coral Layer. 4. Cut out the “Happy” Thinlit from Dapper Denim card stock using the Precision Base Plate and a FLAT cutting pad. You might also want to put some Parchment Paper or Wax Paper from your grocery store between the Thinlit and the card stock to help you remove it more easily from the Thinlit. Attach using small dots of Glue – either Tombow or Fine Tip.
Have fun using the Lots of Labels Framelits and the Hello You Thinlits to make cards for a variety of occasions.
