Die Cutting with Stix2 & Sizzix
|Here I've die cut the bird from Stix2 A4 DS tape sheet, carefully removed one backing sheet before sticking carefully to card. Now remove the second backing sheet & cover with Stix2 Transfer foils. All the card blanks are from Stix2 & here I've used the very pretty blue pearl card which has been passed through an embossing folder. I've used the same technique with the following 2 cards.|
|Here I've used Stix2 PVA glue to adhere some tissue paper behind some Stix2 Project Acetate & then attaching the die cut.|
|Here I've covered a piece of black card with A4 DS tape sheet before passing through an embossing folder & covering with Transfer Foils. I've used the Stix2 glue pen to attach the sentiment.|
Lastly I've used Stix2 Mount & Stamp Foam to create a set of stamps from dies. Simply use a Sizzix Bigz die with the foam to create a complimentary set of stamps.
Summer Release Samples
Here's a few new samples using some of the new late summer release of Woodware stamps from Creative Expressions in partnership with the great products from Stix2.
FRS643 Unicorn. I've printed onto material & then ironed onto a baby grow using the Various Materials Adhesive sheet . I've mixed a little Spray Fabric paint (Neon Pink & White) in a palette & added some crystal glitter to paint parts of the unicorn.
I've been working on some new samples using the Stix2 with heat range using fabric. These are all 12 x 12 squares which when completed could be made into bags, cushions, pictures or whatever you wish. I've used the new spray fabric paints in 2 different ways; firstly I've sprayed around the outer edge of the material (I've used a linen type) & then after drawing the image from the stencil onto the fabric using a fine fabric marker, I've painted the main image using a brush. These paints are really great to paint with as you can mix them in a palette to create any colour you wish & you can also mix crystal glitter with them to give a shimmer. All the masks/stencils I have used are the "That Special Touch of..." range available from Creative Expressions. When the paint was dry I have ironed the piece with the Stix2 Craft & mixed Media iron (S57360) to fix the colours & make them fully washable. I have added some embellishment using the Stix2 Iron Adhesive sheets (For Various materials & For Delicates) which have been die cut & then ironed on with with Transfer Foils in particular the new sets "Chocolate Box Treat" (S57368) & " Pick & Mix" (S57369). I have also stamped some sentiments onto the adhesive sheet for various materials & ironed this onto the piece (don't forget the parchment paper!).

Hi everyone I've been hard at work creating some new samples for you all to peruse using the great new products from Stix2 launched at the NEC in February. I've also been playing with some of the new Woodware designs from Francoise Read & Jane Gill now marketed by Creative Expressions plus some lovely Thinlets dies from Sizzix. All card blanks are from Stix2's great quality range of cards & envelopes.
Take a look !
|All the card used here comes from the Stix2 "Tinted" range|
& to add a touch of sparkle I've used some round Stix2 3D foam pads
which I've covered with glitter from one of the Seed, Bead & Glitter sets
Here again all the card used is from the "Tinted" range
plus some lemon ginham card for the rabbit with
a 8 x 8 card blank as the base. I've punched the daisies
from some white & lemon Stix2 Stardust paper
|Here's another take on the Sizzix "Wild Rabbit" die this|
time using Stix2 orange Stardust card & a piece of their
gorgeous satin ribbon.
|Another look at the new Transfer Foils from "Pick & Mix"|
|Here I'm using one of the new Woodware stamps FRS349 "Tatty Daisies"|
I've created a background using Stix2 Project Acetate & water based markers
before stamping on top. The centres of the flowers were made with hot glue
& gold transfer foil.
|Here we have another new stamp, this time FRS638 "Paris Collage".|
The butterflies are a Tim Holtz set from Sizzix "Detailed Butterflies- Mini"
I've given the top butterfly the transfer foil treatment with the Stix2 2in1 glue pen.
