This week during our "Fall Collections Edition at Create with Connie & Mary", we are celebrating Halloween Week! My favorite of holidays to create for. I decided to use one of Stampin' Up!'s new "Thinlits Dies". These dies create an automatic "flip" card for you in one easy step. THe die scores and cuts all in one swoop. Take a peek:

Open the card and the center is cut with the die and "flips":

And this is what the flip side looks like on the inside of the card:

Laying flat:

How neat is that! And here is what the new die looks like:

So many new pieces to play with. You can use some, all or none to go with the card shape or you can use the other pieces separately on a different card style. So worth the money! Make sure you visit Create with Connie & Mary to see what our design team came up with using this week's challenge colors!

  1. Wow! I never would have thought to put that swirl with a Halloween theme, but boy, does it ever work! Reminds me of ivy growing on a wall or fence. Nice.

  2. Love your flip card; great colors. Those swirls look like hanging branches; some place that bat might like to roost.

  3. wONDERFUL! The thinlits are on my list...and probably more DSP...I also love Halloween...and Fall and am looking forward for Fall to finally arrive! Thanks, Debbie...

  4. That set is just perfect for the Thinlits...and love the swirl stamped in black on the DSP! Great idea!

  5. I can't wait to try out my card thinlits! This is such a cool card! Love the stamping you did on the dsp!
