Sizzix A Little Birdy Told Me card

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

I love it when a manufacturer thinks ahead for us crafters, supplying not only the tools we need to create a darling project but then posting the instructions online as well.


Sizzix has done just that with their BigZ Die Tree w/Flower, Heart & Leaves along with their Framelits and stamp set, A Little Birdy told me.   You can find the Instruction PDF online to guide you step by step through the process.  I’ve stepped up my card a little by adding the additional grass along the bottom with the Martha Stewart multi blade scissors, a few additional flowers and leaves.  I decided to use a 5″x7″ card base which allowed lots of room for all my die cut elements.    The card base is cut from the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Solids and the mat atop it is from the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Special Occasions Prints.  I love this Spellbinders paper it folds and scores wonderfully!  The white mat was cut with the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Pierced Rectangle dies, I so like the look of the pierced edge.


Aren’t these birds just the cutest?  Once you have the Framelits set in hand you’ll soon discover you have an extra bonus die to cut out another bird, just add and eye and beak and you’ll be all set.  I used Tim Holtz Distress inks in Hickory Smoke, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean to color the birds.  Adding the beaks which I stamped and fussy cut from a solid orange cardstock adding a dab of Glossy Accents on the eyes, feet and beaks.  Don’t you love the these darling little guys?


On the Sizix BigZ die you get not only the tree but this heart, flowers and leaves.  I used my flower tools to shape the leaves a tad and colored their edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  A little clear Wink of Stella on the heart topped by Glossy Accents just makes it pop.  I also touched the Glossy Accents to the bird’s feet, eyes and beaks.


I hope you’ll join me on today’s video where I run through all the supplies used and do a start to finish on the card.

Thanks for joining me and Happy Craftin’!

Sizzix Bigz XL Box and Card Die

Friday, June 26th, 2015

Karen N here today showing off a gift I made for a friend using the Sizzix Bigz XL Box and Card Die.  With some of the XL dies, you can get away with using the regular cutting plates, but with this one, you’ll definitely also need the extended cutting pads (available for a heck of a deal at Cut@Home) as the box is longer than the regular cutting pads.  Of course, I used my Big Shot to cut.  :)

Here’s a video that shows you how to put together the box and a little more about my project:

And here’s a picture of the project:


I cut the box using white cardstock.  I used a fairly heavyweight cardstock, it would hold it’s shape.  I used a stencil and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick, Mowed Lawn and Picked Raspberry.  To put the box together, I used the FABULOUS 1/4″ Angel Craft Tape.  This tape is wonderful and sticky!  I then tied a 3 Girl JAM ribbon and bow around the box and hung a charm with some white Timeless Twine.

Then I cut 3 cards (they are 3.5″x2.5″ and can be cut with the die or a cutter).  I stamped three of the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy Stamps (LoVe these birds!!!) and colored them up with Copic Markers.  I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick, Mowed Lawn and Picked Raspberry.  Then I stuck washi tape around the edges to tape a gift card to the back.  Here’s what that looks like:


Easy and fun way to give a special gift!  Hope you enjoyed seeing my project today.  See below for a complete supplies list.

Craftily yours,

Sizzix Baby Dresser Card !

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

Hello! Today on the blog I’d like to share an adorable & simple baby card. My niece will be having a baby girl soon and this die set from Sizzix is perfect! I’m using the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 12pk Card Baby Dresser.

2015-06-23 16.45.34download

This die comes with 12 separate dies, one of them being your card base. The finished card is an A2 sized card, therefore it will fit in a standard sized envelope.

2015-06-23 16.46.13  This card was so quick & easy to put together. I have a video, showing the process. If you’re interested, please click video below.

I used mostly scraps of patterned paper for my card. Using my Sizzix Big Shot Machine, I first cut my card base. I then folded it along the score lines. I continued to cut all my die pieces. The dresser front and drawers, background shape, baby onesie, and the sentiment “baby”. I also cut a bow from my Cameo machine.

While working on this card, I remembered I had a tiny hanger in my stash, which I thought would be perfect to hang the onesie!

2015-06-23 16.46.04  I then adhered all my pieces down, using tiny brads for the dresser drawer pulls.

This die set really did all the work for me, it was so simple to use. For the sentiment baby, I cut out another banner shape to go behind the word.

Screenshot_2   I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. There are lot’s of dies like this from Sizzix for all occasions to choose from.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cards with Sizzix Flip-It’s Die Set

Monday, June 15th, 2015

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a couple of cute cards that I made with this very cute, very versatile die set from Sizzix and Stephanie Barnard. I could not believe all the dies that are including in this set! Watch the video below for an overview of the set and everything that is included, let me tell you, they thought of everything!

I used a solid pastel green color card stock to cut the card base, then I folded it. Next I cut the panels for the card using a cute polka dot paper. For the first card I made I also cut three of the scalloped circles. the largest one I cut from the same polka dotted paper that I used for the panels, the next scallop I cut out of a coordinating yellow polka dot paper, and the third from a white water color card stock, I also cut two sets of the border pieces out of the yellow polka dot paper, the word HI and the background for it using the same paper as well as two additional small scalloped circles in white for the inside of the card. I also cut a circle using Spellbinders Nestabilities Small Circle dies. I used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut everything.

Once I had all the pieces cut I was ready to assemble my card. I used a cute lady bug stamp set that I have which just happens to be a Stephanie Barnard stamp set called Lady Bugs 2 Love. I stamped one Lady Bug onto one of the small scallops that I cut, this was for the outside of the card, I adhered that one with pop dots. I colored the Lady Bug using a Spectrum Noir Alcohol marker. I inked the edges of the scallop using Tim Holtz Abandoned Coral. I also stamped a small lady bug stamp on the other two white scallops and colored them in for the inside of the card. I inked the edge of the circle that I cut and stamped a sentiment in the center.

Once I had everything adhered to the card I added some gems to the boarder to finish the card.

Here is a look at the outside of the finished card:


And here is a look at the inside of the card:


For the second card I used the same base set as the first but I added elements from another die set that is available from Sizzix and Stephanie Barnard. This was a Triplits die set called Hello Sunshine. This is a great set to add on to the card dies, it makes them even more versatile and you can mix and match them anyway that you want.

For this card I started with a yellow base, I cut the panels from a pink chevron patterned paper and inked the edges with Stampin Up Positively Pink ink. I also cut out a scalloped circle in the larger of the two panels. I cut a couple of the clouds out of a coordinating blue chevron paper. For the center of the card I cut out some of the circles from the Spellbinders die set, one in the blue chevron paper and one in the yellow card stock, I also cut an addition one out of the chevron paper for the inside of the card. I cut out one of the sun backgrounds using the pink chevron and one using the blue, I cut out two of the smiling suns from a yellow pastel glitter paper, I also cut out blue eyes and pink smiles for the suns, and the Hello Sunshine phrase.

Next I assembled my card, I inked edges of some of the pieces including the pink chevron sun background, the phrase and the circle that I cut for the inside of the card. I adhered everything on the card, I used pop dots for the sun on the outside of the card and for the two clouds. For the sentiment inside of the card I used a Unity Stamp Phyllis Harris set called Big Time Special.

Here is the outside of the second card:


And here is the inside:


Here is a list of the products used that are available on the Cut@Home website.
