Hey friends, I feel compelled to share this story with you.  It’s about the fabulous thinlits “Stitched Labels” and my rush to use them.

I received my bundle a couple of days ago.  I was so excited to get it that I opened the pack grabbed the four thinlits that you see in the picture below and started to create.  I was thrilled with the embossed images that we can now create when using the embossing mats.  I also love all the detail in these thinlits.  After creating a couple of cards I was completely satisfied with the product.

Last night I picked up my thinlit pack so that I could transfer them from the Stampin’ Up! packaging to my magnetic sheet.  To my surprise there we were SIX more thinlits in the pack.  DUH!!!! how did I not realize that?  My goodness, I’m totally over the moon about these stitched thinlits, all of them are fabulous.  There are 9 thinlits in the pack, not 4, holy cow….. I can’t believe I was completely happy with 4.   After my discovery, I had to use some of the other thinlits right away.  The photo below shows the complete set.

Here is the coordinating stamp set… Isn’t it great?

 

This is the card that I came up with.  I started by using the cross stitch border thinlit.  This thinlit works perfectly on your layer pieces.  I’m sure there are many other ways to use it.   This is just one idea.

I used the line stamp and Cherry Cobbler ink to suggest the lines in the America flag.  In this setting, the stamp took on a folk art look.

 

Here is a close-up, look at the darling heart and the Night of Navy circle.  I love the size of the cutouts in this circle.  They allow the thin ribbon to be weaved in and out easily.  I love the way the circle turned out.  Adding ribbon reminds me of  4th of July bunting.  And that little heart, I see myself using it all of the time.  It’s the cutest.  The stitching really stands out.

I keep laughing at myself.  Thank goodness I opened up my thinlit pack all the way.  I will be opening my thinlit and framelit packs completely before I start to work with them from now on.  Lesson Learned!
