Four Ways Friday #80 - Framelits Labels Collection

For this week's Four Ways Friday I want to share with you four ways you can use your Framelits Labels Collection!
I LOVE embossing using the framelits!!!!  Here is a video to who you how I created the double embossed look for this card:

Your framelits are also wonderful for creating windows on your cards and paper craft projects!  Here I ran the card through the Big Shot with a framelit to create the window.  I stamped a piece of Crumb Cake card stock with an image from the Apothecary Art stamp set (which coordinates BEAUTIFULLY with the framelits labels collection dies) and then ran the card stock through the Big Shot with a labels framelit.  I adhered the embellishment to the inside of the card.  I stamped the greeting from Loving Thoughts onto a strip of Naturals Ivory card stock and then adhered the strip to the backside of the front of the card - I love how this creates a diorama effect!  The flowers were stamped using the Language Of Friendship stamp set and punched out with the Boho Blossoms punch.
You can arrange one sized framelits inside a larger sized framelit to cut out some great frame shapes!  Here I used two of the smaller labels dies and cut through a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I then adhered the frame to this small 3x3 card with dimensionals and embellished the card with an oval stamped with a greeting from Petite Pairs and some punched flowers and ribbon.
Did you know you can create beautiful decorative edges with your Framelits Labels Collection dies????
Here is a video to show you how I created the decorative edges you are seeing on the Crumb Cake and Pool Party card stock:
I hope you've enjoyed this week's Four Ways Friday!  I hope it encourages you to play with your Framelits Labels Collection dies in new ways!!!!  I wish you a weekend full of love, laughter and creativity!!!!!

Wonderful ideas, and great videos, Michelle!! I've seen other stampers do embossing with the framelits, but your method seems the easiest. Can't wait to try it. I just have to find my rubber silicone mat. I know I bought one!! Love all your variations. Very creative! Doris

Thanks for your response. No problem commenting this time. I guess I was just having a "duh" moment. Planning to read your post on fun foam again. I want to know if it can be painted with acrylics, dried and then heated and molded into a brooch.

I'm ashamed to admit that I have not yet used this collection yet, but you certainly have sparked some ideas with your wonderful samples and videos. Thanks for the inspiration once again.
