Perfectly Perserved thank you notes, by Stampin Up and me

Hi dear Stampers.
How is your Wednesday going?
The days are flying by here. I can almost not keep up with them.
So much to do in so little time. But.. I am happy that I am almost done prepping these little beauties for the Card Buffet.

Aren't these the cutest little things? I just adore them.
They will come with those cute little Very Vanilla coloured envelopes. Just so perfect!
I love having little thank you notes in my card storage. They always come in handy!.

I will show you how they got their nice clean cut around the image.

With the Big Shot machine, you can create die cuts with any of our exclusive Stampin’ Up! dies—or any Sizzix die. The Big Shot machine comes with Standard Cutting Pads and a multipurpose platform so you can start cutting immediately. From crafting to quilting and everything in between, the Big Shot is a big deal!

The "little felt cover for the top of the jar" was cropped to perfection using the Perfectly Preserved Framelits Dies and my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
The dies can be used seperately to cut a single shape. Because of the open design of the dies, you can put them where you want on a stamped image for perfect placement.

To use Framelits:
  1. Place the felt or cardstock or paper on a cutting pad.
  2. Position the Framelits dies on the card stock, placing them raised-edge down. (The cutting edge should be against the material to be cut)
  3. Place a cutting pad on top of the Framelits
  4. Place the Cutting Pads on Tab 2 of the Multipurpose Platform.
  5. Run through your Big Shot.

Here it comes rolling through :)

I love felt.. I wish I knew how to create my own felt stuffies.. But this will do. I layered 2 pieces of felt and added my framelits die on top of them.

And voila!

I love handy tools, that make card making easier and more fun :)



Just for you!

Well.. again a whole lot of photo's. I hope they help you to understand how this whole Big Shot thing works. Youtube is a great place to do some research as well!
Well, enjoy the rest of your day.. I am off to make some Mexican food.
Inky hugs, Pauline


  1. Wat heb je dat leuk gedaan met dat vilt Pauline!
    Dat geeft wel die speciale touch.
    Ik begin die set steeds leuker te gaan vinden nu ik er meer voorbeelden mee zie.

    groetjes van Caro

  2. Prachtig, Pauline!
    Mooie voorbeelden het je laten zien en je uitleg is ook erg duidelijk!
    Dank je wel!

    Liefs, San

  3. Hee Pauline, wat leuk dat je volger van mijn blog bent geworden! Wel heel speciaal: een Canadees-Nederlandse volger. Je ziet dat ik meteen ook bij jou langskom om een kijkje te nemen. En ik val met m'n neus in de boter! Wat een leuke kaartjes met die glazen pot met deksel. Toevallig heb ik van Whimsy Stamps en soortgelijk stempel met bijbehorende 'die' gekocht. Ik heb er nog niets meegedaan, maar jij brengt me wel op een idee. Misschien zie je binnenkort wel iets van jouw blog terug op het mijne. O ja, jij hebt er natuurlijk ook een volger bij ;)
    Groetjes, Ellen


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
