INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Balmy Blue card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Whisper White card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Cut your Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet at 4″ x 5-1/4″ and put it on the back of your card front. Watch This Video to see how easy it is to use Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. 3. Now it is time to cut out your card front. Put your cardstock with the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the bottom. Place your Blizzard Thinlit on the cardstock.
~Big Shot Sandwich: Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter, Cutting Pad/Plate, cardstock with Multipurpose Adhesive sheet on the bottom side, Thinlit, Cutting Pad/Plate. 4. Gently remove the Snowflakes and use them in another project. 5. Peel off the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet backing. Put your fingers between the sticky side and your card base while you position it. Lay down. Rub gently with your Bone Folder to make sure the adhesive sticks. 6. Use a Tag from the Tags * Tidings Bundle or stamp another sentiment and either punch it out or die cut it. Attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I put Rhinestones over the holes in the Tag.
Do you have trouble getting a good stamped image when using large stamps? Try this easy trick to get a perfect image every time! I am demonstrating this technique using the Tags & Tidings Bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalog which has a large stamp and coordinating Framelit.
This Video is about 5-1/2 minutes long.
SUPPLIES: Bundle: Tags & Tidings Photopolymer Bundle # Ink: Call Me Clover Markers: Real Red
TIPS: 1, Lay your stamp down with the stamp facing up. Lay your cardstock gently on top of the stamp holding it down with your fingers so it does not slide and smear the ink. Continue holding onto the cardstock while rubbing another stamp block over the cardstock where the stamp is. Put your fingers on the other side of the cardstock while rubbing the other half of your stamp and cardstock. Peel the cardstock of quickly, lifting straight it straight up so you don’t drag the cardstock over the stamp and add smears to your image. 2. When die-cutting your Tags & Tidings, line up the tags in two opposite corners such as the upper right corner and the lower left corner. Everything else will line up nicely then. Yes, there are parts that were stamped that don’t get cut out as part of the tag.
I have been wanting to use my Delicate Lace Edgelits and thought they would look nice on a simple Christmas Card. This was a relatively quick card to make. Use your Big Shot Die Brush to help remove all the bits from the die cut lace. SUPPLIES: Stamps: Night in Bethlehem Rubber Wood-Mount #144809, Clear-Mount #145282 Ink: Garden Green Cardstock: Thick Whisper White
Real Red Big Shot:Delicate Lace Edgelits #147053 Big Shot Die Brush #144262
Adhesive: Tombow Glue
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut two Real Red Large Lace Edgelits. Line up the bottom flat edge with a piece of 4’1/4″ x 5-1/2″ Real Red cardstock. Run through your Big Shot. I ran it through 4 times: Two times forward and two times backward. Watch This Video for help cutting Detailed Thinlits and Edgelits. Use your Big Shot Die Brush to remove all the little bits quickly. Attach Edgelits to your card front as shown with Tombow Glue. I just put Tombow along the bottom edge and on the solid center parts. 3. Stamp your sentiment in Garden Green ink in the center of your card front.
Your card is finished.
Would you like a Snowflake Embossed card front? Now you can by using the Blizzard Thinlit and the Big Shot Embossing Mats. It is pretty easy if you follow these instructions. The look you get is amazing!
BIG SHOT SANDWICH: 1. Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter REMOVED (OR Multipurpose Platform with 1-2 tabs open) 2. White Impressions Mat (Thick white mat from Embossing Mats kit) 3. Gray Silicone Mat (from Embossing Mats kit) If you want lightly embossed Snowflakes you can try using the Blue Silicone Mat 4. Cardstock 5. Die with cutting edge on cardstock 6. Normal Top Cutting Pad
The reason they call it a sandwich is because it is assembled like a sandwich.
The Big Shot Platform is the Plate.
The White Impressions Mat and Cutting Pad are the bread slices.
The Silicon Mat, Cardstock, and die are the meat, cheese, and lettuce. Sorry, no condiments included on this sandwich. 😉

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Call Me Clover card base at 501/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Granny Apple Green card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through the Big Shot with the Corrugated embossing folder. Attach to card base with Tombow Glue.

Cut out the largest Stitched Labels Framelit from Call Me Clover cardstock. 5. Layer the sentiment and the Label with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Attach to card front with Tombow Glue.

TIPS: 1. Fill your Stampin’ Spritzer with Water. 2. Only give 4-5 spritzes with your Stampin’ Spritzer. 3. Use a Stampin’ Spritzer rather than a normal spray bottle. The Spray Bottle will get the cardstock too wet making it curl as it drys. This will also make it harder lay flat when you attach it to your card.

I have had some questions about using Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets with die cuts. In this video, I show you how to use Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets with detailed Thinlits. The process is the same when using these Adhesive Sheets with Framelits. This process turns whatever you are cutting out into stickers.
TIPS: 1. Figure out how much cardstock you need by laying out what you want to die cut on a piece of cardstock. Measure how wide and how long the cardstock needs to be. Cut to size if desired. Cut your Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet the size needed. 2. Rub the word side of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet with your Bone Folder. Use the cut line at the edge to help you pull the word sheet off the adhesive and backing. If the cut line is not there, use your fingernail at the corner to help separate the word sheet from the adhesive and backing. 3. Attach the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of your cardstock. 4. Lay out the dies on the cardstock with the adhesive sheet on the bottom. Cut. I usually go back and forth four times. Pull out both cutting plates and flip over so you can see how well your Thinlit was cut. If necessary, cut again with the bottom facing up this time. 5. Lay out your die cut on your card front to determine where to put it. Remove the white Adhesive Backing and stick to the card front. You can rub your Bone Folder over the die cut to make sure it sticks well.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Crushed Curry card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Mossy Meadow card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.
~Paint your Swirls & Curls card front with the Shimmer Paint using a Q-Tip for each color. You can paint as much or as little as you want. The ladies at stamp class painted more than I did and it looked great! Set aside. 3. Cut your Cardstock and a matching piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet for each color.
~Cajun Craze Large Leaf: 3-1/4″ x 3-1/2″
~Pumpkin Pie 3 Leaves: 3″ x 3″
~Mango Melody Long Leaf: 1-1/2″ x 4″
~Crushed Curry strip: 1″ x 4-1/4″ 4. Run over each Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet piece with your Bone Folder. This helps it to separate from the backing better. Attach your Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to their matching sized cardstock by peeling off the word paper and sticking it to the cardstock. It doesn’t have to be perfect. 5. Cut out your Leaves and Strip using your Big Shot and the Precision Base Plate. You may still need to roll your dies through several times on each side. Check to see that the cardstock has cut completely through. The Adhesive Sheet backing may not cut all the way through even though the cardstock has cut all the way through. This is okay. 6. Lay out all your pieces on your Mossy Meadow card front. Remove the adhesive backing from each leaf and the strip and attach them to the card. Attach a piece of Copper Trim to your card on one corner if desired. Use SNAIL on the back to attach it.
Your Card is finished. 7. Optional: Emboss your Envelope Flap with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder. Watch this Video to see how easy it is.

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Cajun Craze card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White cardstock. Punch out with Starburst Punch. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. Leaves. Adhesive NOTE:
~The easiest way to attach the leaves is to put a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet cut to the same size as your cardstock on the back of the cardstock. I usually forget, but really enjoy just peeling off the adhesive backing to attach the die cut.
~You can also put small amounts of Tombow Glue on the back of your die cut to attach it.
~If you are feeling really lazy, you can cover the back of your die cut with SNAIL. I will have to let you know later about how long things stay stuck on the cards. 3.Die-Cut your Leaves. Cut three detailed large leaves and two small solid leaves from your Copper Foil Sheet. Put a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back if desired.
~Here is the Sandwich to use: Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter (OR Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed.), FLAT Bottom cutting plate, Printer Paper folded in half on the cutting plate, Copper Foil Sheet with shiny side touching the Printer Paper, Die with cutting edge on back of Foil Sheet, Top cutting plate. The Printer Paper helps keep the Foil Sheet shiny and smooth. Without the Printer Paper, your Foil Sheet picks up all the marks on your cutting plate. 4. Finish Your Card. Lay out the leaves and the sentiment on your card front. Attach them. 5. Optional: Add a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock on the inside of the card to write on. Stamp a Cajun Craze Leaf in the lower corner if desired.
