Here are more of my top favorite dies that are retiring! (I already shared the Butterfly Thinlits and Large Number Framelits. If you missed those posts, click HERE or HERE.) Click on the images below to see the original post with all the details.
Lovely Words Thinlits
I love word dies and this set is so versatile! You can cut the images out or cut with the Layering Circles or Ovals to keep the different shapes. They can be used on this inside or outside of cards. Here’s just a few of the many cards I’ve created with these dies.
Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies
Look at everything you get in this set! The Mini Treat Bag Dies are great for making bags to fill with treats, gift cards, and/or use as an envelope for a card. It is so much fun to decorate for a variety of occasions. You can use DSP or cardstock. I embossed the cardstock in the sample below.
Here’s video showcasing the features of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.
Rose Garden Thinlits
I love the size of the dies in this set. You can make a bold statement and use them for a variety of occasions. I’ve made birthday cards, sympathy, wedding, and more. The card below is one I made for my amazing daughter!
Here’s another card idea from the Stampin’ Up design team.
Watch as Carrie from the Home Office shares why this is one of her favorites too!
Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits
Who said hearts are just for Valentine’s Day? Not me! I’ve used the beautiful Bloomin Heart Thinlits for birthday, wedding, friend, as well as Valentine’s Day cards.
Check out this video showcasing these dies.

It seems my weekend was all about food…a crab fest, cupcakes, and peaches! Yesterday my daughter and I went to the annual Peach Festival in town. There’s nothing like fresh fruit when it’s in season…sweet and delicious!
Today’s card is just peachy! I made it for a friend who could use a little pick me up. I thought I’d drop it off with some fresh peaches to brighten her day.
The DSP is from a Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and it’s just as sweet as those peaches!
This is another one of those “formula” cards that’s quick & easy to put together. I cut my card base 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it at 5 1/2. The DSP layer measures 3 1/2 x 5 with a mat that’s just 1/8 larger at 3 5/8 x 5 1/8. I like the way the ribbon looks like it is “hugging” the card. (At least that’s what I imagined and wanted to convey!) The sentiment is cut from the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies. I have used the dies in this set a lot and find they are very versatile. I love that I can snip them out (like I did on this card) or just die cut the shape and layer it with paper behind it.
My card wouldn’t be complete without an envelope to coordinate.
I goes great with the basket of peaches. You can really see how realistic the Designer Series Paper looks!
I also needed a thank you card so while I had my paper out I just cut for two! (I do that a lot!) I changed it up a bit and used Peekaboo Peach cardstock and ribbon instead of Tranquil Tide. I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits to layer the sentiment.
I’m glad I came home with a lot of peaches yesterday because I seem to be giving them away faster than I can make peach cobbler! Here’s both cards side by side. Do you have a preference?
Stamp Set: So Many Shells (sentiment) Papers: Pool Party, Tranquil Tide, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White Ink: Peekaboo Peach Tools & Accessories: Lovely Words Thinlits Dies, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Squares Framelits, 1/2″ Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon, 3/8″ Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon (retired)

I’m excited to share another beautiful card from my Fun Fold Card Swap! You are in for a treat as I share each of these cool fun folds. The collection of cards I’ll be sharing might not have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, and techniques. Let the inspiration continue…
Linda made a Corner Fold card showcasing the gorgeous Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. Often I find I like the pattern on one side or the other but, with this pack, I love them all!!!
When I first opened Linda’s swap card I thought, “WOW! I wish I could keep this.” Then it was like my wish was magically granted as enclosed was another card…one for me! I have not made this fun fold before so I love having an example (not to mention a beautiful and sweet card). I have to say I am overwhelmed and touched by all the kindness, inspiration, helpful tips, etc. that so many of you that follow my blog have shown me and each other. To quote Mary Ann (from yesterday’s comments), “I love our blog family!”
I love everything about this card…the cool fun fold, the color combination, the sentiment, the font, and how Linda added the extra detail on the inside piece of the fold. Now I just need to learn how to make it so I can share all the details with you!
Here’s the card Linda sent me. It shows another example of the corner fold with a horizontal orientation this time. Linda used 2 more patterns from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP. It certainly is lovely!
Here’s a picture showing how the fold looks on the inside.
I love how Linda used the die from Lovely Words Thinlits to make the inside sentiment layer! I will definitely be CASing this one!!!
The Lovely Words Thinlits has 3 dies in the set. There are a variety of ways to use them. Linda has shown two different ways on her cards… cutting the word out from the shape like she did on the front of her swap card and cutting the die to use as an inside panel like she did on my card. The dies coordinate with the Layering Ovals and Layering Circles Framelits for even more versatility.
Please leave a comment below to let Linda know how much you love her fun fold creation (especially if you are the lucky person who received this in the swap). Thanks again to everyone who participated! It was so much fun getting “Happy Mail”! Check back tomorrow for another fun fold swap card. I plan to showcase all of the cards while I am away on vacation so you will continue to be inspired!
Have a wonderful day!
