8/2 Stampin' Up! Wonderfall & a Technique Video for Using the Coordinating Autumn Accents Die



This is my first card using the new stamp set called "Wonderfall" featured in the Holiday 2012 Mini. The itty bitty circle sentiment is from the Holiday Hostess set called Mixed Medley. Don't be fooled . . . the gorgeous herringbone background is actually scaringbone from the designer pack called, "Howlstooth & Scaringbone!" Don't you just wonder how much coffee they are drinking at SU? Too cute and I LOVE IT!!


Here is an picture of the inside panel . . . pretty sharp, huh? I've been drinking coffee, too! lol!

Well . . . one of the questions I've been getting from my downline and a few customers is . . . "Why didn't SU make a set of framelits to go with the Wonderfall?" I think it's because framelits are a little more limited in what they can cut through whereas the Autumn Accents Bigz Die can cut through many, many different materials from multiple sheets of paper and fabric to magnet sheets, cork and even aluminum flashing! So . . . I made a video that teaches you the technique I am using to coordinate my stamps to the die cuts from Autumn Accents. Enjoy!!

Thank you for making that video. I was kind of disappointed about the lack of framelits for this die, but what you say makes sense, You can make more with it than just paper projects. I only briefly wondered if framlits could be used to cut other things, but did not give it a long enough thought to investigate. :)

Thanks so much for your video! It was very informative. You covered topics I had not considered and this gives me alternative avenues for other projects as well. You have such a sweet upbeat voice. I appreciate you.
