Stylish Stems Beauty

Look how fun it is to use the new Stylish Stems Thinlits Dies from the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  They can be used in so many ways.  The first one I want to share is this one using just the negative image.  This was so simple to make and really has a nice look to it.

At the bottom of this post there is a video showcasing other great uses for these Framelits and Stamp Set called Special Reason.  They come as a bundle called Special Reason, saving 10% from purchasing them separately.

Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Basic Black - 5 1/2" x 4 1/8"
Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack - 5 1/2" x 3 7/8"
Whisper White - 5 1/2" x 3 5/8"

Basic Black - Large Frame
Whisper White - Small Frame (you can stamp first or after, whichever is your choice)

On the inside, below, I placed the leftover strip which is a 1/2" strip from the DSP used as they are all 6" x 6" and then you don't have to throw away a little scrap - just use it to decorate inside.  Perfect!

To see some other great ways to use the Stylish Stems Framelits, check the video below.  If you are reading this in an email, click HERE to see the video, or go to my blog post for today.  If you are reading this on my blog, you should be able to see it below:

Thank you for looking in today!  May you have a Blessed Sunday!

  1. How fun! Love the inside - I did that with some of the Christmas cards too. Love the colors you used, really nice. I like the bag they decorated using those framelits when you click on the bundle to see what is in the set. I will watch the video later. I hope your week is a bit less hectic than last week at work.

    1. Seems like a better week, especially with Suzi being home. Change is always difficult, but nothing I can't handle, I hope! LOL
