Hi everyone! I hope you all had an exciting Christmas. I got a new Sizzix Big Shot machine for die cutting and embossing! It’s super exciting ^_^
Basically it’s a big set of rollers that you feed paper and dies through to cut out the shapes. The board with tabs has different thicknesses depending on the type of die you are using, and there are two clear cutting boards to sandwich the die and paper. It sounds a bit complicated but it’s really easy to use. I got lots of dies and embossing folders to play with and here are some of the ones I did on Christmas day!
Aren’t they pretty! Next time I will show in a bit more detail each die and embossing folder and the results. For now, here’s a card I made to test out some of the shapes.
You can’t see the shapes that well because I used pastel colours for everything, but it does give you an idea of how the dies cuts (the heart, flowers and decorative frame) and embossed sheets (the love-heart-embossed polka dot paper) can be used.
