Kiev chose Flowers for this Love Your Stamps Challenge. She used the Falling Flowers stamp set and the May Flowers Thinlits dies. Remember you can use any stamps you already have for this challenge. Kiev chose a coordinating stamp set and Framelits for this challenge. You can also tweak it to make you happy.

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.
This is the prototype for my Mother’s Day Cards. This one will be for my Mom because she likes pastels. I will change the colors for each of my daughters and daughters-in-laws because they like totally different colors. Hopefully I will remember to take a picture before I mail them out.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Powder Pink card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Powder Pink card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Use one of the Petal Pair embossing folders on one side of your card front and run it through the Big Shot. Repeat with the other side. Glue to your card base. 3. Die cut your flower pieces and leaves.
~Wild Wasabi Leaves: Cut three leaves with the May Flowers Framelits.
~Berry Burst top flower layer: Use both the flower petal die AND the framelit that fits around it to cut out this flower. You can put 1-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back of the cardstock BEFORE cutting. This will turn it into a sticker. Otherwise just glue it onto the bottom flower layer.
~Fresh Fig bottom flower layer: Use the same Framelit that went around the flower petal die to cut this layer.
~Attach top flower layer to bottom flower layer.
~Attach leaves to the back of the flower. I used Tombow Glue. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the flower.
~Now cut the desired Stitched Shapes Circle in Powder Pink. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
~Stamp your Happy Mother’s Day on Whisper White cardstock in Berry Burst ink. Punch out with the Classic Label Punch. Put Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. 4.Put it all together:
~Lay all the pieces on your embossed card front where you want them.
~Put Tombow Glue on the back of the Doily in the center circle. Attach to card front.
~Attach the Stitched Shapes Circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals centering over the Doily.
~Attach the Flower and Leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the flower and put on the Stitched Shapes Circle.
~Attach your sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals towards the bottom of the card.
Your Card is finished. 5. Envelope-Optional: Emboss your envelope flap with one of the Petal Pair embossing folders.
