Isn't this too die for? OMG...it's absolutely too cute for words. I didn't really think I would like the WORD framelits but after I experimented, cussed, and finally found some patience I realized how easy these dies are too use. I know many of you might have some issues like I did so let me give you some quick tips.
First, What are Thinlits Dies?
Thinlits Dies are very detailed dies designed to be used with the Big Shot. These dies are ideal for die cutting detailed and narrow images such as words.
Now, how do I use them?
Layer the following to create the cutting “sandwich” from bottom to top:
Standard Cutting pad
Single sheet of cardstock or paper
Optional Waxed Paper layer
Standard Cutting Pad
Run the layered sandwich through the Big Shot. Use the Paper Piercing Tool to gently poke through the holes in the die to loosen the paper from the die.
Gently remove the die cut image from the cardstock surrounding it. Again the Paper-Piercing Tool is helpful.
Remove any interior die cut pieces that may remain in the die cut image such as the center of letters. Use the die cut word or shape on your projects. Multipurpose Liquid Glue or 2-Way Glue Pen are generally the best adhesives to use on these delicate and narrow shapes.
With some Thinlits dies you can also use the negative left when removing the die cut word or image.
Quicky Tips of the trade.
Add wax paper between the cardstock or paper layer and the Thinlits die to help make it easier to remove detailed die cuts.
Use the Paper-Piercing Tool to help remove die cut shape from the die and the surrounding cardstock.
Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere these delicate and narrow shapes to your projects.
Add a piece of cardstock between the Magnetic Platform and the bottom Standard Cutting Pad if your die isn’t cutting cleanly all the way through the cardstock.
Run the die vertically through the Big Shot instead of horizontally. For example: on the “thanks” die the “t” and then the “h” and the “a” and so on, would run through the Big Shot in order instead of the whole word at one time.

A friend showed us some of the flower bouquets she made using Stampin' Up! products. We have a rose, origami flowers, and so much more. The butterflies comes from the new die set from Stampin' Up! called Butterflies Thinlits Dies #137360 #24.95. I love the use of the tulle and just how lovely the flowers came out. Thanks for sharing, Deborah...Just simply stunning.
