The story behind the Sizzix Tea Time Die Set design...

Hello! It's Olivia Rose from the Sizzix Product Design Team and I can't wait to share with you the thoughts behind the design of the Sizzix Tea Time Thinlits Die Set in the Chapter 1 collection!

From growing up in the UK, I can safely say that cups of tea and curated gardens are a matter of national pride. This Sizzix Chapter 1 Thinlits Die Set combines the two into an overflowing flower arrangement fit for any occasion. What's more, it's perfect for all making types, ranging from paper crafting to home décor.

In this Sizzix Die Cutting Set, the cup and flowers can also be used separately, and also compliment one of my other Die designs in this chapter, the Sizzix Tea Cup Bigz Die.

Whether you want to create an afternoon tea extravaganza or sit with a quiet cuppa will depend on what you pair this gorgeous set with. I love a bit of bling and just imagine these layered spring flowers in pastel cardstock with sequin centres! So gorgeous! Click here to discover the full range of Making Essentials.

I’ve designed numerous floral dies for Sizzix over the years so it’s important to me to keep coming up with new shapes and ideas. I like the combination in this set of delicate stems and full flower heads.

This Die Cutting Set is fit for all seasons! Even though this Die Set is a Spring release you could also use red, white and deep green to take it into Autumn and Winter. Making with this Die Set alongside the Sizzix Gold Opulent Cardstock Pack could be something special for Christmas time!

But, I’m getting ahead of myself. It’s Spring and gardens are coming into bloom, cups of tea are being made and this set is here for them!

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog on the Sizzix Tea Time Thinlits Die Set! If you use these dies or those beautiful sequins then I’d love to see! Share your makes with us on social media with the hashtag #mymakingstory.
