Say Hello With This Colorful Floral Card!

Hello Jeanne_Streiff

Hello! Jeanne here today with a card sharing a colorful card using new dies from Tim Holtz.

1 Hello Jeanne_Streiff

It's always fun when you can use your dies in different ways. Today I'm going to show you how to use a die from 66227 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3PK - Mixed Media #4 as a stencil to make a unique background. I die cut cardstock using the recommended Sizzix die cutting sandwich for Thinlits and Framelits dies: Sizzix Magnetic Platform (or the Precision Base Plate for Thinlits Dies), Sizzix Cutting Pad, paper, die (cutting side down), Sizzix Cutting Pads. Run this sandwich through your Big Shot Machine. Don't forget your Sizzix Die Brush & Foam Pad for getting all those little paper bits from your dies.

I used a sponge and randomly sponged some ink onto my cardstock (Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio, Spiced Marmalade) . Then I laid down my homemade stencil and sponged color through the openings with more ink (Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio).
