Stampin' Up! Framelit vs Thinlit Dies

Hi everyone! Today's topic of discussion is on Stampin' Up!'s fun framelit and thinlit dies.

When it comes to the differences of a framelit and a thinlit, there is one unquie quality.

While they are both chemical-etched dies and wafer thin, each has its own special use.

With a framelit, that is exactly what you are doing. You are framing a stamped image and allowing the die to cut the image for you, using  the big shot .... which reduces fussy cutting, or you are able to cut a window as well, usually for the purpose of shaker projects, or to being other designs through the window.
With a thinlit, this die cuts out the exact image and it may be used as a stand alone element for your project.

Now, each of these dies also can have some overlapping elements, meaning you may find a piece or two that would be considered a framelit in a thinlit pack or vice a versa.

They are so much fun to work with whether you choose Framelits or Thinlits, either will definitely add beauty and fun to your crafting projects.

Another great must have item for use with thinlits is the brush. This will help make sure images with fine detail, have no trouble popping of the die.

Last but not least, don't forget your big shot to enjoy all the fun with these fun dies. I hope this helps clear some things up when understanding which is which. Have a great evening!
